The lastest. . .

We had everyone over our house for
Easter this year

I love the celebration of Easter
(Jesus IS Risen)

I LOVE my Family!!!!!!!

Taylor and Tommy:
Justin (16),  Taylor (12), and
Jake (10)
(oldest in each family :)
All of the cousins look up to
Justin (literally and figuratively)
Kristi w/Jessica & me
(she is our adopted family :) )
Egg hunt all over the back yard:
This is why we celebrate-
death (Jesus) brought life
for ALL through His
A couple weeks ago I went to
Marshall University to speak
on Women in Sports & Title IX.
I am so thankful for the women
before me who paved the way.
Many did not have the opportunities
I had- and I feel so blessed to
have played sports when I did
growing up. 

Maybelle Blair (All-American
Women's Pro Baseball League)
is a friend- and it was so fun
to speak alongside her at
Marshall!  She is so funny
and is always so kind.
I was thankful for the opportunity
that Dr. Kat Williams gave me
to speak on campus.  It was
truly an honor.
I was able to watch Arizona
Softball play in Fullerton last
month and spent some time
talking to my favorite coach
in the world: Coach Candrea!
FCA Softball is still growing.
We need all the support we
can get.  Spread the word and
get involved if you love Jesus
and softball :)
We received these awesome
rings from Josten's rings for
the God & Country Event
in FL this past January.
What a cool gift that was!
Last month I was also in the
Ohio Valley speaking to schools
for Sports World. 
It's always such an encouragement
to be able to remind young students
to keep their hearts set on what they
are passionate about.  I remind them
to give all that they have, stay positive,
make good choices & let them know
that it was my faith in Christ that
made the biggest difference in my
whole life.
OK, last but not least. . .

This should have a whole post
to itself so maybe I'll write about
it again later. . .

I bought the BlendTec Blender.

I am not normally obsessive, but
this thing has me obsessed!  I have
eaten more spinach in the past
3 weeks than I had eaten in a year
or 2 combined!  I LOVE this
blender.  I have been making
2 green smoothies a day and
have been getting so many
different fruits (apples, oranges,
mangos, bananas, strawberries,
raspberries, kiwis) & have been
adding cucumber, carrots, kale,
spinach and flax seed. 

This smoothie was water,
mango, green apple, spinach,
and ice.
And a new favorite: tortilla soup:
all fresh ingredients!

Drew is the only one who will
drink green smoothies, so I have
been sticking to fruit, yogurt, juice
smoothies for the boys.  It's been
nice to have when we are running out
the door to the ball field & it's way
healthier than what we normally
would grab!
Well, that's what we've been up to
lately.  I did have a chance to speak
last weekend at South Hills
Church last weekend and again
at Covina HS on Tuesday.  I know
God is the One who opens doors,
so I will continue to walk in
His will and His way!  There is
nothing better.
