My Project 52

Hi all!

I have to admit (if I haven't already... which, I'm sure I have) that I love The Styleberry Blog. Shawna is pretty awesome and has encouraged me in many ways. From first stumbling upon her blog when I needed help getting started making my own baby food, to exploring the possibility of cloth diapers, to how to encourage my hubby, she keeps me interested with each new post.

One thing I loved following on her blog last year was her Project 52. She took a new photo each week to capture a picture of what motherhood meant to her that week. There were ups and downs throughout the year but now she has a whole collection of memories.

I was inspired.

I'm taking the challenge to do my own Project 52 this year and my theme is going to be Change.

A lot is changing for us this year... and this will be a great way to remember it all and how it felt to go through it.

So, on that note, here is my first week. I had a few things to choose from but settled on this:

The hubby and I putting together our support letters.

The hubby and I have entered a time of raising support. For those of you who don't know, raising support is something some full-time missionaries do. We are going to be full-time staff at a Christian Mountain Adventure camp in Southwestern Colorado. So, not only is this going to be a big change for us in that we're moving across the country, but we are going from being individuals who get paid like most people to being completely dependent on the generosity of those who feel called to join our support team.

This girl loves to plan. And, then to execute those plans.

But, this is out of my control. It's in God's hands now. He's the only One who can provide for our needs and get us to Colorado so my hubby can start doing the job that he is so excited to do: be the Equestrian Program Manager.

I know he was made for a job like this. Horses, mountains, ministry... he is so perfectly suited for this job.

So, now we wait. We wait in expectation for what God is going to do to help us be more dependent on Him and to get to the new jobs waiting for us in a new place.

Change is scary... but it's good.

And, here's a bonus "change" for the family...

Since the little mister turned 2 last month, he switched from the nursery to the 2 year old class at church!
Here's me dropping off our big boy!

I can't even stand how fast these 2 years went!

ps: I didn't use this picture for my project this week because I didn't take it!



  1. i love this idea! what a wonderful way to follow along with you on this year of new journeys! you so much :)

  2. This is a great opportunity to follow what God has in store for your family. I hope you won't mind, but I have forwarded your blog to my granddaughter, who is very interested in horses and wants to help ill children. She wants to use her horses as a ministry...God Bless you both and may your ministry thrive and grow...Barbara Riggs

  3. Cool project! I applaud your courage to tackle a project that requires you to open up about scary things (like change!) and post on a regular basis. You go, Kelley. :-) Support raising is scary but also exciting. Every week I am amazed at how God provides through people excited to be part of what He is doing. I'm all over change - and I'm excited to see what you post about in the 51 weeks to come!

  4. you inspire me i love reading your post thank you!


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a note to let me know you dropped by!
