Book you MUST read ASAP : The Shack by William P. Young
This book totally broke down all the boxes i have ever tried to put God in and completely reconstructed the way I think about Him. It was sooooo refreshing to read as it put "religion" in it's place. I will most likely be reading it over and over again. If you haven't read it yet, make it a priority and just do it! You won't regret it. I promise.

My good friend Justin Kyle Hasty (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=12105085) recomended this CD to me, and it is AMAZING. I love it. You should listen. You'll like it. I promise.
Looking Forward to:
1) Wingate Univeristy Homecoming!
Wingate (rhymes with eight) is my Alma Mater. Homecoming is Friday, November 7th and Saturday November 8th. I am looking forward to seeing all my old friends, classmates, and professors. I'm also looking forward to watching the Bulldogs kick some tail (hopefully!)
2) Amanda's visit.
Amanda, aka Moppit, is my bestest and closest friend. We have known each other since kindergarten (blog waiting to happen). We went to school together every year, with the exception of 3rd grade, until we graduated highschool. She lives in Raleigh now, and i am actually in Raleigh with her this weekend, visiting and catching up, and she will be coming to stay with me next weekend. This is her blog, if you'd like to discover a little more about her: http://confidentnotcocky.blogspot.com/ She is quite the character. :)
Yes, i know we haven't even made it to Thanksgiving yet...or Halloween for that matter, but i am psyched about Christmas. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! It is the best time of the year (besides the Fourth of July, which is my other favorite holiday). My friend Kelly and I have already been buying decorations for a tree i don't have. I'm just going to put my ornaments on her tree, and listen to her fireside CD while gazing lovingly upon it's ornamented boughs. Ahhhhh....i can already feel the magic.
