Laura: Gentle and not so gentle reminders of who Christ says I am. Gentle and not so gentle reminders to flip my perspective around and seek the Favor of God in each and every situation!
Laura: SPIRIT SONG!!!!!! So far I have met Lecrae and Switchfoot, roasted in the awful heat, rode rollercoasters with my brother and friend, gorged on junk food, and worshipped from the third row with Mosteller, Manafest, Icon for Hire, Lecrae, Jeremy Camp, and Switchfoot....it's only gonna get better!!!!
Melissa, David, Rachel, and me
Meet n Greet with SWITCHFOOT!!!
Falen: About a fantastic blog/Twitter Trend/Instagram Movement:
If you don't know about it, check it out. They even have Weekly Truth Lock Screens that you can save directly to your phone! Definitely gonna dig more into this, and am pretty pumped about it too!
Laura: That all too often I let toxic thoughts destroy my spirit. I tend to forget who I am IN Christ and believe the lies that Satan feeds me. Elevation Church had a guest speaker this week, Pastor Craig Groeschel, author of Soul Detox. Pastor Groeschel spoke on toxic thoughts and how to detox your soul of the toxic thoughts that can creep in and pollute our lives.
I also learned that the Socratic method utilized in law school operates on three basic principles:
1) The professor asks the question and you give the answer (never answer the professor's question with a question-this will backfire)
2) The professor is always in control
3) The student never wins (whatever you say is wrong or at least questionable)
While I know and accept the purpose of this method...I'm scared to death! God's got this, Laura...just breathe. :)
4) This week, I accomplished:
Falen: Finishing Ephesians 3.
Laura: Ephesians 3...and diving into my law school prep books (and the all consuming law school reading has begun, can't put it off any longer!)
5) I am looking forward to:
Laura: My third and final day of Spirit Song! I am also looking forward to spending all day Monday and Tuesday at the pool with my kids and celebrating the fact that I will officially be old on Tuesday (LOL!) I LOVE the fact that there are always fireworks on my birthday...always makes me feel special :)
