It is about time that I post another blog post.  Especiall with the exciting news that I am engaged!  Marc proposed on July 6, and I said yes!  We are planning a May 17, 2015 wedding and neither of us can wait!!! 

Walking in and realizing what Marc was up to

Marc proposing!  And of course, I said yes!!!

We had already decided we were going ring shopping together later, but Marc had a special ring which has meaning to both of us for me.

Together under the sign he had up!

With our families: From Left to Right - Don (Marc's dad), Marita (Marc's mom), Marc, Me, Carol (my mom), and Terry (my dad).

As I had mentioned in a blog post in April, I have been pretty quiet on here because I am in a courtship.  Yahweh is doing amazing things in Marc's and my lives.  We are very excited about Yahweh is doing.  I thought I would share a few pictures.  And yes, eventually, we will share our entire story.

Purify 2014

While the format of Purify 2014 - Retreat for Hebrew Roots Singles was changed, Yahweh still did absolutely amazing things in each person's life during the weekend! 

I have posted pictures at  Please check them out and get a glimpse of Yahweh working.

Special thanks to Mike Clayton of Joined to HaShem Ministries for speaking, for all the many helpers during the weekend, and to each person who participated!

Well, as you may have noticed, I have not been quite as consistent with my blogging.  I have been quite busy lately...with an important priority.  You see I have entered into a courtship with an amazing Godly young man.  I will probably share some on the blog...but I will most likely not be as consistent as I have been in the past.  We would appreciate your prayers during this exciting time in our lives.

Quick update

I have had a very good week...amazing in many ways beyond what I can describe.  So I will just leave it there and keep praising Yahweh. 

I was also interviewed Friday on The Good Report Radio show about Purify 2014 and Purify West Coast - Retreats for Hebrew Roots Singles.  We also talked about some of the challenges facing the
Millennial Generation which was a very fascinating conversation.  No archived version available yet, but as soon as I get a copy, I will share it.
