This morning as I was praying as I was pinning quotes on Pinterest and reading emails (sounds like they totally shouldn’t go together) , I can across this article from Unstuck in my inbox. The first line really grabbed me because just a couple of weeks ago, I was thinking that I really needed a routine.

I have been going about my days trying to get a “grasp” on things and to try to create a  routine. It’s been a complete failure, might I add. Of course routine has its place and can be very useful, but currently, I am not one who does routine well. I think of myself as a freer spirit than most and I have been looking for ways to get back to that now that I am working a full-time day job. Of course, I throw myself into my day job and do it to the best of my ability, but it has a weekly routine and there’s not much creativity involved (stay tuned for my post on the benefits that I have found on working a “9 to 5” job).

While reading the article on Unstuck’s website, I felt like I was reading my thoughts on the page, just without the actions to go with it. I constantly daydream about traveling the world and seeing all that God has created in this beautiful world, but I’m stuck on how I can do that with a husband and a teenager to take care of. I think that I’ll start small and begin taking local day or weekend trips and see what happens from there.

I hope that you will stick with me on this journey, besides life is always more fun when you share it with others!

Do you think that having a routine is necessary? Do you have a routine? If so, how has it helped you? If not, why?

Wow, I really need to do better about keeping my blog up to date. I’ll work on it, I promise. Well, I’ve been really busy shooting and editing all of the images that I’ve been capturing. One thing before I continue, I want to share the fact that I would like this blog to be about all of the great and new experiences that I have on my journey in my photography business. I am not here to just be a photographer, but to help and to serve my fellow man and neighbor as Jesus has commanded.

Last week I had the pleasure to attend the Hillsong United Conference here in Houston, TX as part of the media, held at the Grace Community Church. It was such an awesome experience! I also had the great opportunity to meet Shannon Walker of Integrity Music, who, by the way, is a wonderful and helpful person. I just wanted to share some words with you from the press conference that was held and afterwards images (of course) from the concert that followed!

Joel Houston, one of the founding members of Hillsong United, gave a synopsis of what the Hillsong group is all about, starting with the fact that he helped form a local church in Sydney, Australia. The group is about church, people, and praising God. He feels as though “God has birthed this ministry” into them to go out and to show what worship is all about. From this ministry the “I Heart” Revolution was born.

On Friday, August 22, there was a release screening of the DVD “With Hearts As One” and I must say that it was really powerful. People began to worship God right along with the DVD as they watched, I’ve never seen anything like it. It was an amazing experience.

The “I Heart” Revolution is a revolution about serving God and bringing youth with a like-minded urgency to serve God together. Joel doesn’t feel as though they’re called to “Christian Entertainment” and said that they felt burdened to take what they do a step further. He also feels a need to communicate what God is doing and to share the heart behind the songs that they sing.

“We need to look beyond our differences and see what we have in common” expressed Joel. “If we can be the hands and feet of Jesus locally, then globally we can start to see a change. Together we can see that our little piece of the canvas is painting God’s total picture. It’s about the unseen, about charity, about showing God’s love!”

Enjoy!

Hey everyone! Thank you for visiting my new website and my new blog! I thought that it would be fun to venture out into the blogosphere and give blogging a try, so I started this blog just to keep everyone posted about any specials that I may have and to share pics from new sessions. This is my first blog, ever, so please check back often! Please feel free to post ANY feedback that you may have and would like to share! So, to kick things off, I’ve decided to share a photo from my trip to Mexico a few months ago, it was taken at Chichen-Itza. You can read more about Chichen-Itza by visiting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chichen_Itza.
Peace & blessings!
