i'm just a girl whose life, affections, and dreams have been forever changed by a perfect savior who loves me and died for me. i get to enjoy loving and serving jesus with my super hot husband, and will hopefully live overseas and have tons of baby boyds. for now, i'm content to love and serve jesus from right here by singing as much as i can, making as many crafty trinkets as possible, and finding joy in every little detail of life.

the salmons

so yesterday i had some free time. wait… what’s that?

i know, most of us have forgotten what that is, but it was truly a wonderful thing. while i spent my free time browsing blogs, i stumbled across my friends, the salmons. big news, THEY ARE ADOPTING!

as i sat thinking about different ways i would love to support them and get the word out, i had a “duh” moment. of COURSE i should share their story on my blog. 

follow this link to hear the beginning of their adoption story and how you can pray and support them!

david and i both believe that adoption is such an incredible calling. it shows us and the rest of the world a very clear picture of the gospel. when we were not a part of God’s family, He brought us in, by His incredible mercy. He sacrificed His son to adopt us into His kingdom. what better way to celebrate the gospel together than to share in this adoption with the salmons!?

happy friday friends!

music for your monday

i’ve been mia for a bit. i had vacation, and needed a mental respite. i traveled out of town twice, and then my computer went haywire. but i’m bringing back monday’s from my hubby’s computer. i desperately need truth this week, and well, every week. that means God’s word. that mean’s the gospel. that means remembering who i am in Jesus. i’m listening to this, this week:

 

i’m doing some typography for my living room to remind me that “Jesus is ALL i need today.” i’ll post a picture when i finish!

beccaboyddesign is on etsy!

my esty.com site is officially live and ready for sales!

this little shop has been prayed over and rejoiced over all week. my, (well david and i’s), prayer for this shop is that the Lord would grow it, and use it for His kingdom in ways our minds can’t even think of right now. from serving sweet friends who might need a little side job helping me, to eventually living overseas and beginning shops for women in really poor countries that will provide for their families.

i know the Lord put creativity in my heart to bring glory to His name. taking ordinary, or even ugly things, and making them beautiful is a reflection of what He did in my heart. i look forward to sharing the joy of creativity and beauty with so many others!

summer and change

i just changed my summer work hours from part-time to full-time this past week. i am feeling it. less laundry got done, less meals were home cooked, my carpet is begging to be vacuumed, and no blog posts were written. (yikes!)
i did however spend extra time with many friends. saw my husband off for our first nights away from each other. and topped off the weekend by leading worship at The Summit Church with a killer team of musicians who love Jesus a lot.
i have a lot to get used to for this season, but i’m truly looking more forward to it all everyday.
i promise to blog more, and not forgot wonderful things like “music for your monday!”
check with me tomorrow to hear about life as a nanny and loving these kids with the gospel they don’t know yet.

wedding refinery

david and i have been to two weddings in the last three weekends. that season is upon us. it has been wonderful to enjoy these weddings without any wedding planning stress. don’t get me wrong, our wedding was completely wonderful, but it was an incredibly stressful time in our lives.

there are some things that i have been meddling over since these weddings. i’d like to share them:

1. at the first wedding, everyone spoke, with delight, about how the bride was a huge dreamer. [in the past, i don’t think i would hesitate to call myself a dreamer. always making big plans to see big things happen. i never felt confined by anything. instead, i was free to dream big for Jesus and all he might have for me. in more recent years, i believed a lie- that to dream big is to be irrational, unrealistic, and irresponsible. reality has taken a tole on me, and i’ve let life squish me a little. since that wedding three weeks ago, i have been reflecting a lot on what it means to dream big for the kingdom, and dream big for my marriage. God created me to dream, and gave me a precious husband to speak reality and truth into my big dreams. God did that on purpose so that together, we can accomplish more than we could apart! thank you God for marriage and for still refining my heart.]

2. also the first wedding, so many people spoke of the bride and groom as incredibly passionate people. mostly passionate for Jesus and people. [passion. that word can mean so many things and be used in many different ways. i think as reality has hit, my passions have taken a hit too. the problem is, i’m letting my tainted view of reality change my view of what God has given me to love, and created me to be passionate for. it’s all selfishness and pride at the end of the day. what if i dive into something passionately and fail? what if i have to be uncomfortable to be passionate for the lost and broken in the world? what if it’s less predictable to make decisions based on these crazy passions? in the bible, we see a lot of passionate people. the word zealous is used to describe them. we are even told to be zealous.

1 peter 3:13 says, “Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good?”

revelation 3:19 says, “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.”

passion and zeal for Christ is a calling from God, to cause big love, big faith, big repentance, and big grace.]

3. finally, in the second wedding, our friend/pastor, daniel, spoke one of the clearest presentations of the gospel that i’ve ever heard at a wedding. [it was a beautiful reminder of the meaning of marriage. God created marriage to give us a foretaste of the beautiful marriage to come. we get glimpses of what God truly created us for. we understand in an altogether new way what it was for Jesus to take our sin, and our guilt, and our shame then bear it, and forgive it. marriage without forgiveness (the kind of forgiveness that knows no limits) is nothing like what God intended. love never ends, so forgiveness never ends. needless to say, i left that wedding with a deeper desire to love and forgive my husband like never before.]

weddings are a precious time of celebration and ceremony. in this case, refinery.
