Books to read

Multiply by Francis Chan
I about half way through this one and it is really great, but I did not realize it was meant for a Bible study and not just as a individual read.  It is a book with a ton of scripture, one that you are meant to mull over, not speed through.  God is still using it in BIG ways... who knows, maybe I will use it in a Bible study in the fall.
* Shepherding a Child's Heart by Ted Tripp
Finished!  Andrew and I are doing a weekly study of this book and it has been really good.  I was interested in seeing what the rest of his ideas were so I read ahead :).  Now I can tell you that this is a book that people either love or hate because it includes... ahem, spanking.  Ted Tripp is a believer and he has a thorough explanation on when, where and how.  I think the book, especially the beginning is great to read no matter where you fall on the spectrum, it is convicting about not only addressing your child's heart, but also your own.
*When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett & Brian Foikkert
The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian
*How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth by Gordon D. Fee & Douglas Stuart 

Things to do

* go to the beach at least once

*visit Andrews family in Alabama
*visit grandparents in Maryland
* visit grandparents in Ohio
*go to Charleston
*go to Savannah
*yard/garage sale
*back to running- I was running consistantly before the move... but then things got CRAZY as we prepared and moved... I have been running off and on.
*back to working out-  for the first 20 days of May I did the 30 Day Shred... and then nothing...
*blog often-  I blogged a few time, we have not gotten our computer set up in our new place so I have been a little MIA
*get better at computer stuffs
