Nicole, you mean you literally had a Wonder Woman costume on? If so, I'd sure love to have a picture of that for my blog! :-) I'm not a runner, but if you think you're ready to start running again, by all means go for it! I'm so glad you stopped by and I found your blog today.
I know you'd love it Shannon. I would love to meet you in person sometime. Melanie
Thanks, Sadie. That's hilarious! No one will think you're a nobody then. Hope you enjoyed the conference, too.
Thanks so much, Barb! I'd love for you to have the same experience at a conference. I really appreciate your participation on this blog. It's wonderful to have online blogging friends as well.
Amy, thank you so much. I'm glad that I will be back to reading and commenting soon! I know you've got to have great content up. :-) I sent my friend, Deb, to your blog and she subscribed.

My dear friend and blogging buddy, Deb, invited me to attend Bloggy Boot Camp in St. Louis this past weekend. I wanted to go just to spend time with her, but I honestly wasn't so sure I wanted to attend... Continue reading

I just wanted to tell you that I think you have one of the most beautiful blogs (and headers) I've ever seen! Great work!
LOL. Thank you! I am working on improving my posts. Floss away if you need to. ;-)
Very true. It works both ways! We do have to pay attention to patterns of behavior and make sure they are God pleasing. Thank you for your thoughts! Melanie

Shannon, I see a lot of light shining when I read your blog. I'm blessed by it and I pray that you will keep letting it shine. I believe that those of us who are teachers have more struggles than most. I try to remember that when I'm having a hard time, it means I'm on the right path. Melanie

You certainly do have gifts, Amy, and you share them beautifully on Fullher Life. So glad the Lord introduced us!

Seth, I'm so glad you've had a change of heart! I've been so blessed to enjoy others' gifts, so I know people will appreciate you sharing yours. Thanks so much for commenting.

To me, it's a relief. Because my gifts aren't created by me or just for me, I can relax and let God do with them what He does best. I'm so glad you haven't hid your light under a bushel.

If you ever sang traditional Sunday School songs, you know you aren't supposed to hide the light of Christ under a bushel basket. You're supposed to share the Good News with others. But often, when it comes to our talents... Continue reading

Loren, it's so true. I think I sometimes forget that man's approval doesn't even compare to God's love.

Barb, don't worry too much about the rules when you're just getting started. I know some very successful bloggers who don't adhere to all of these standards. Write what you feel called to write and see what god does with it. Thanks for commenting!

Loren, thanks for your feedback. I don't feel that the blogging gurus are necessarily advising bloggers like me. I don't want blogging to become my life. I've read some scary admissions from bloggers lately who've essentially abandoned their families in favor of the praise of readers. I'd like to grow readership without losing my way.

That's the thing--wanting to improve for the glory of God. That's my goal! But i think you have an A+ blog already. Glad you chuckled. I had fun writing it. :-)
