Challenge Accepted #6


Oh yes I do!

I love weekends because that means more family time, more farm time, and more time for rejuvenation, junkin’ and Jesus!

And this is exactly what my weekend will hold.  My husband and I (and our kiddos) love to go ‘junkin’.  Throughout our weekends we have met some of the most amazing individuals!  Many, many times do we have the opportunity to minister and pray with others.

We’ve nicknamed ourselves The Joyful Junkers! Joyfully showing Jesus everywhere we go… (Lord knows He has to help me with this one throughout the last few weeks with my AC being out in my vehicle with 100 degree temps!)

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. – Colossians 3:17

So my challenge to you this weekend is this:

WHATEVER YOU DO…give God the glory and honor and SHOW JESUS everywhere you go!


(even if it is hot and humid outside)

Challenge Accepted #4


Praise the Lord!  We made it!

It’s the weekend so that means it is time for a challenge!


My challenge to you this weekend is:

Memorize one scripture verse.

I don’t care what scripture you choose, I don’t care how long or how short it is…just memorize a scripture. Share it with your family and live it out this weekend!


If you just can’t seem to decide on one, here is a good one to begin with:

“Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.”
Joshua 3:5


Read it, speak it, believe it, live it!


Challenge Accepted #3



After the week I’ve had…I don’t know if my challenge will be much more than staying alive…HOWEVER, I think this picture will help!

No, not really!  My week wasn’t that bad…but sometimes we make mountains out of molehills don’t we?  :)

Either way, it’s Saturday and I know you don’t want to spend 30 minutes reading my blog post.  So, let’s get to it!


My challenge to you this weekend is this:

*Do something nice for somebody…something that makes you go ‘above and beyond’…


“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”Galatians 6:9

As for me?


Challenge Accepted #2


It’s Saturday again and I pray you are having a blessed weekend thus far!

I don’t think just one weekend of being INTENTIONAL is all we need.

So again for this weekend my challenge is this…

* Listen to your children.  Pay attention to them.  Look them in the eyes when they are speaking to you.

*Show your husband that you love him.  Get interested in what interests him. (you know this means milking goats and chasing chickens for me, right?) :)

* Get in the WORD!  I don’t care what you read.  It can be a book, a chapter, or you could even jump around from Old to New Testament…just dive in and see what nuggets the Lord has for you this weekend.

As for me?


Challenge Accepted Saturday


I know it’s Saturday and I haven’t been writing on the weekends.


However, ….


I have a CHALLENGE for you…


I challenge you to FOCUS this weekend…


Focus on your husband, focus on your children, focus on your Precious Savior…


Put down your phones, try and stay off social media for a bit today and FOCUS.




*Look at your children when they are speaking to you and pay attention.

They are absolutely begging for your attention.

If you don’t give it to them…somebody else will.


*Ask your husband questions. I know life is busy and you’ve probably missed out on a lot this week.

-What was a high point in his week?

-Did he have days a little more troubling?

He would love to see you interested again…


*Get in the Word. Period.  It doesn’t have to be anything in particular. Just get in and read.


Now…as for myself?
