School, New Attitude, and an Update

School starts tomorrow! I finally got my the book for my English class in the mail today. We ordered from an Amazon seller and it took forever!! We were suppose to get is somtime around Christmas, but the seller basically forgot to ship it...they finally shipped last Tuesday and I'm so glad it got here before tomorrow! My classes are spaced about two hours apart, so I'll be spending some extra time on campus. I'm going to have to work on self-discipline and train myself to work and not be distracted by all the going-ons of campus! I'll be mainly spending time out of class in the library and it's going to be tempting to put aside my textbooks and pick up a novel!

Last Tuesday, registration for the New Attitude conference opened! This year the topic is Scripture:

This year at Na 08 we’ll rediscover the well-worn pages of our Bibles. We’ll spend time considering the certainty, sufficiency, and relevance of God’s word- that it may become to us a joy and our delight.
-from New Attitude

I'm soooooo excited! I'm praying and saving, taking all the appropiate steps to be ready to attend!
John Piper, C.J. Mahaney, Josh Harris- just a taste of the amazing speakers that will be there!

Update: Dad came home from the hospital last night. He's feeling well and is looking forward to getting back to work. He has medication that is working to regulate his blood pressure and lower his thyroid levels. Thanks for your prayers!

Much Love,

Adrienne Renea
