Gosh, with my trip last week to bible horsemanship camp and starting school this week, we are in semi-hyper drive and next week all the co-op classes start up (English, Drama, Music)–that will be MAJOR hyper-drive! Preparing for the women’s retreat at the end of next week (I lead worship for that) will keep me distracted, too! 🙂

But I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth! I don’t think I have ever gone this long without posting an entry to the blog.

My desire is to revamp this blog. I mean TOTALLY revamp, while keeping all the content accessible for those who may want to access “the journey” so far.

I know I said I was going to begin the HEAL study this week. I have decided to start it in October after I find my “equilibrium” a bit with my new schedule. If any of you want to join in or want to know more, here are some links for you:

  • An interview with Allie Marie Smith (the co-author with Judy Halliday) can be found here
  • A link at Amazon for the book HEAL (includes reviews) is here
  • Allie’s website is here
  • Allie’s blog is here
  • Some discussion about the HEAL book at the Thin Within forums is here

In a nutshell, this book isn’t likely to take more than 6 weeks for us and it is a light study. You could do other things at the same time–very unlike the Thin Within book or the Get Thin Stay Thin book–both of which are quite dense. Great stuff, but like one member at the forums said, “This is a Cliff notes version of TW.” Could be, but presented a bit differently with a slightly different audience in mind.

I am shooting for the first Monday in October to begin reading/studying this book for the first time.

In the meantime, I plan on squeezing in time to do some work on this blog and to write some short (ha! ME? Write a SHORT entry?) entries about things God is teaching me. I hope you will join me. 🙂
