These pictures were taken to celebrate the ending of Forrest and Gentry's first year of early morning seminary. Every day for the entire school year, these boys got up and attended an early morning bible study of the New Testament for 50 minutes. Gentry was lucky enough that seminary was held at his home, but unfortunatley, Forrest wasn't tht lucky. He had to get up at 4:45am to get ready and we drove the 20 minutes one way to be at class by 6:15am. This program is designed for the youth to help strengthen them against the challenges they face everyday. Forrest didn't want to miss a day of seminary. even when he was home sick! Not once did Forrest ever complain he didn't want to go. He knew what was expected of him and come to find out, he really did enjoy it! Plus, it was really fun to stop at our country gas station for a sausage bisquit and a Sundrop! I am really proud of Forrest and Gentry to enduring to the end. What a great feeling of accomplishment they felt when it was over! Great job boys! One year down, three to go!
I'm finally moving towards owning my own painting company, after wanting one of almost 25 years. I've been gaining experience of painting for others for years, which I've truly enjoyed. I'm back in school, earning another degree, but this time in Business. By having the knowledge of the behind the scenes in business, I feel I'll have a greater advantage in direction I'm headed. I look forward to overcoming obstacles and moving toward my goal of being a successful business owner. The purpose of the blog is to track my progress, from overcoming my fears, to tracking my successes.
