Prior to moving to Colorado, I had never been one to shop at a thrift store (unless I was looking for a tacky Christmas sweater or a Halloween costume.)  That has all changed in the past few months!  There are SO many thrift stores out here, that it just doesn’t make sense not to go on a treasure hunt every once in a while.  Here are some of my “treasures.”

Ann Taylor dress shirt... nothing too exciting, but for about $4, not bad!

So in summary, that’s 3 tops, 2 skirts and a pair of jeans for close to $20!  More posts about my thrifting adventures to come… 🙂

 

Passion 2013 January 2, 2013

Happy New Year!!

 

What better way to start off the new year than streaming the Passion 2013 conference online?  Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Check out the live stream at 7pm eastern by following this link: http://live.268generation.com/  Also, you can watch other messages from the conference at your convenience for a limited time by following the same link.  The conference ends Jan 4th, so be sure to check out the site in the next few days. 🙂

 

What an encouragement to see thousands of young adults (18-25) setting aside the first few days of their new year to unite with other believers “for His fame!”  To those who have written off the younger generation, take heart!!

 

Tonight (Session 4) Francis Chan delivered a passionate message, stressing the faithfulness of God.  Our actions do not (and cannot) change God’s character.  His promises of blessing and warnings of judgement remain true no matter what!

 

To top it all off, Lecrae will be there tomorrow (Jan 3) at 7pm est!
