A few of you have emailed to ask how goes my endeavors to climb the M and the weight loss. With all the smoke in our area, climbing the M has been out of the question. You can't see the mountains, much less the M.
The weight continues to come off in little bits - which is exactly what the weight loss doctor wanted even though the neurologist would just as soon see it come off really fast. So hopefully once the forest fires are extinguished - and we have over 500 firefighters on the ground working so hard to do just that - I'll head back to the M.

And last but not least - Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) has started up again for the year and this year we're studying Genesis. I'm so excited to be a part of this and want to encourage any and all - if you're looking for a great Bible study - this organization has some of the best. You can check out their website at http://www.bsfinternational.org/.
They have one study for women and a separate one for men. They also have childcare where the kids study the same things as the adults. It's been such a blessing to me in the past and I know it will be great fun to go over all those old stories we cut our teeth on in Sunday School. I will admit that BSF isn't for the faint of heart - they work you for sure. You will be blessed by it, however.
Thanks for all the prayers and please keep them coming. The closest fires are 60% contained so that's good news, but it's still terribly smokey. We want to surround those firefighters,smokejumpers, pilots, victims of the fire and all the others who are involved in this year's forest fires, with prayer.
