I'M LOVING... that I ran my best minute per mile yesterday...after a few weeks of no activity. But I am def feeling it today. Like almost miserable. Pain=Gain baby.

I'M LOVING... this online and free book I read called Carry Me Home. It's written by a woman in the Army.

I'M LOVING... this cooler weather!! Jax and I have been snuggling up together. He keeps me warm, lil hot body of his.

I'M LOVING... Jesus. Anyone recommend a good study bible? I struggle with 'diving' into The Word. I wasn't taught to turn to The Bible growing up. It bothers me that I have been a Christian for so long but don't know His Word like I should. I know I am not alone in this. And I would like to change it!

I'M LOVING... this sweet baby boy. Dog Owners: Target has toys in the dollar section! Got a rope/ball for Jax last night. Was destroyed by the end of the night. Why do I even bother?!

I'M LOVING... These quotes found via Pinterest:

Michelle i feel you on the devotional. I find I have to consistently be in the word to really hear Him! i start every morning with Jesus Calling and the bible offerings. but i need something for the nighttime. so if you get any good rec's, let me know (:

Kit said...

carissa said...

Those are great WILW's :)

Check out Kelly Minter - Ruth::Loss, Love and Legacy *I have a link on my blog under October Recipe (10/27/11) if you want to check it out. I loved it. Short, sweet & you learn so much!

Kristen said...

My dog too is a fast destroyer when it comes to toys, that's why Kongs are my fave for him. haha

Love all the quotes!

Hi Michelle,
I'm new to your blog, but I do have a recommendation for a study bible. Try the Quest Study Bible. Mine is NIV, and I don't know if they have other versions. Also, I found that following a Bible-in-a-year plan motivates me to read the Bible every day. Hope this helps!

Rebekah said...

You are my running inspiration!! I have to go to Target and get some toys because Glenda baby is lacking!

Lauren said...

Wish we could do a bible study together, I am in the same boat!!! Love those quotes!!! :)

Mateya said...

I so agree about the Bible. I wish I knew more! Have you read Crazy Love by Francis Chan? I haven't yet but I have heard it will change your life!

Also, anything by Beth Moore is good!

Caroline said...

Knox can only play with animals without stuffing. Everything else gets destroyed!

Joelle said...

I love that Dr. Seuss quote! It is so least for my husband and I :)

And your pup is adorable! I'll definitely head over to Target soon to get mine a few new toys.


Makay said...

This made me smile. So big. My cheeks kind of hurt.

I love quotes.


Jessica said...

congrats on your run milestone! (reminds me I have been slacking on mine)
& to jax: you're precious! :)

Taylor B. said...

yay for running! "why do I even bother" - I'm glad I'm not the only one who says that when dogs destroy things immediately! love your blog!

Ashley said...

Doesn't it feel great when you run faster and faster each time you run?! I have been super lazy about working out.... so I'm going to live vicariously through you and your record times. (:

I'm loving the cooler weather too! Jax looks so cute in that picture.... I think he's begging for another toy to destroy. hehe

I love that second to last quote you shared too.... I so need to hear that today. I'm really struggling with the timing of life at the moment. I should really be happy with where I am right Now.

Nicole said...

Hi Michelle! I highly, HIGHLY recommend Beth Moore's Esther Bible is absolutely life changing. It's one of those Bible studies that every woman needs to do at least once in their life. Look into it, it's worth it :)

Sarah said...

Go listen to some Mark Driscoll sermons at

The Luke series is the BEST Bible study I have ever done. I love the detail he gives and insights he brings. Yes, they are sermons, but they are excellent Bible studies.

Jamie said...

My dog is the same way. Toys get destroyed in no time at all. :)

i <3 this entry. i may have to do one myself next wednesday!

and i, too, need to read the bible more. i feel like i'm behind & haven't studied it enough. that is definitely something i want to change in the next year.
