September, September.

Can you believe tomorrow starts a new month? This summer has definitely flown by for the two of us. Between graduating, starting new jobs, moving and going on vacations, it's been a busy one.

For Katie and I, September is all about recharging and making steps toward our goals. Whether that's taking risks or making sacrifices, we want September to count and be a month full of meaning. Sometimes it's hard to take that first step, but we hope to do just that - and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way.

This month we are excited to be joining a new small group with a church we enjoy here in town, Church of the Highlands. We will be reading the book Facing Your Giants, by Max Lucado and discussing King David's failures, achievements and his ability to overcome so many obstacles. In conjunction with our weekly meetings, we will also spend time in fellowship and service at the Ronald McDonald House here in town. We are excited to get more involved with other young professionals, join in fellowship and also serve a charity that we care about!

We would love for all of you to read along with us as we embark on this journey! Share with us in the comments section on here or on our Facebook page your experience with the book. Have you been facing an obstacle lately? Let's face it.. we all do at some point, right? Whether it is stress from work, financial burdens, school, family, friends, life.. it happens. We are striving to use this time and study to remind ourselves that when we face obstacles AND in times of achievement, we need to remember to Let Go and Let God. 

Let's all look to turn obstacles into opportunities, surrender ourselves and our worries to Him, and make September a celebration of our achievements.

Believe it or not, September has arrived, and here in Alabama the focus is on the start of football season. There is no denying the exciting energy in the air and we look to channel that excitement into all of our upcoming events this month. The beginning of one of our most looked-forward-to seasons has already made us giddy. Between new projects at work, football, upcoming trips, sweater weather and our new small group it is sure to be full of exciting and fulfilling moments. We cannot wait to see what He has in store this month!
