what do i know of holy?

This past week has been such an exhausting, rewarding one. I haven't blogged as much as I would have liked, so here's a little recap of what I've been up to.

*For starters, I've been fighting a sinus infection since last weekend. I've had good days and bad, but I think I'm finally getting over this sickness. (Thank you God and Zyrtec-D!)

*A few days before our wedding (March 7) I moved most of my belongings and myself into Keith's house. I left a bunch of stuff at my apartment, and I had until today to move everything out because my lease has ended. (Wooo hooo) Of course I waited until the last minute so this week was spent moving things out and cleaning. (Thank you to my awesome husband and sister for all of their help!)(source)

*This week was also the last week of school for the Spring semester. I'll take my last final today after work and then I am a free bird until August. I've really enjoyed these two classes and am happy I made the switch to Criminal Justice. :o)

*Last Friday God gave me my "AH-HA!" moment with Serenity Self Defense. This past week I've been researching tons, and I am happy to share with you guys that I will become a certified R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) Instructor in October! Once Serenity gets started I will be the one actually teaching the self defense classes! Praise God!


*Finally, I've discovered an amazing song that I have been listening to non-stop. It's by Addison Road and is called "What Do I Know of Holy." After listening, I was so convicted and felt challenged to dive deeper into my faith.



The person who posted this video on Youtube wrote the following:

"What a fantastic song by Addison Road! Beautiful and challenging. Are we just going through the motions, or do we deeply worship God and place Him at the center of our life? Do we study His Word so that we can know Him more intimately? Do we look for evidence of His holiness? This is what He calls us to do. Lead vocals on this song by Jenny Simmons, who co-wrote the song with Alli Rogers."

I hope you all have a marvelous weekend! Be amazing and stay safe!

I love that song!! They're great live....their shows are totally about worship and praising God...not showy at all. That song is such a wake-up call. Glad it has touched your heart! I received my TOMS gift card in the mail yesterday...what a fun surprise!! Thanks so much again...can't wait to order!

Oh and I had no idea Sandra Bullock adopted...how awesome!

I'm so glad you like my daughter's song. She wrote What do I Know of Holy about a special encounter she had with the Lord during a worship service. But as her mom I can tell you she's been in Love with the Sacred since she was a little girl.
