Joy; 52 weeks of FUN; Linda Barry Photography; Portland ME Photographer

This week’s theme in the 52 Weeks of FUN is “Joy.” One of the most important things in my life right now is establishing a better relationship with God. Now, I’m sure I’m breaking a billion social media rules by posting about this. However, I would just like to say that this is a part of who I am, and I am not afraid of sharing my feelings and thoughts with you all. I will also never push my views on you. Ever.

Except for when it comes to bragging about how awesome PASS is and how every person should use it and love it 😀 That, and showitfast.com! But other than that, it won’t happen!

A friend of mine that I use to be close with in high school sent me this book in the mail after I reached out to her about my desires. She’s easily one of the greatest people I know, and she is SO helpful when it comes to stuff like this. She helped me realize what I wanted a little over two years ago, and was so supportive and helpful, but I didn’t stick with it. This time is different. I feel like I’ve been seeing signs everywhere I go, and I’m ready to take it and run (in a good way!).

Seeing this book in the mail brought me incredible joy and happiness, and I can’t wait to start reading it! It’s one of my personal goals that I be healthy in spirit before I decide to bring children into this world. I also want to know that I have a greater purpose in life. It’s just a good feeling. I know it’s not going to happen overnight, but I’m positive that I will be able to get that relationship I so desperately want. As a science teacher, it’s hard for me to get over some of the “obstacles,” so to speak, about faith and how it all makes sense. This led Amy to recommend a second book to me, The Case for Faith, which I ordered and can’t wait to read!! I’m excited, and I’m nervous. I’m slightly afraid of how people will deal with these personal changes of mine (even though I don’t think ME is going to change that much at all), but that’s okay, because I live my life for me because I am the one who has to live with my choices!

It (the book) also looks, and feels, super cool. It’s little and easy to fit in any little bag.

Yes, I totally judge a book by its pages. And yes, this one totally passes my judgement :p
