God's Plan!!! Amazing Stuff!!

Wow! That is all I can say at the way God works!

Our journey into head coaching and graduate school has been great but stressful none the less! God has continued to sustain us in ways never imagined. I am in awe of the work he is doing in our lives and the ways he is using us!

This past weekend we were back in good 'ole Northwest Arkansas! It was a refreshment for the both of us to see so many people who were encouraging us in this journey God has us on (I would also call it a mission). Ever since Jeff has moved here God has been using him in the community and with our football team! Well, while in NWA this weekend he had about 21 players that came with him to the 7 on 7 tournament. Jeff had his team stay in the 24-7 building of First Baptist. Shawn Smith spoke to the team on Thursday night and Michael Guyer spoke to them on Friday night! There were 7 boys among that group of 21 who prayed to receive Christ this weekend!!!!!!!!! Hallelujah! God continues to confirm to us that we are where he wants us!

I just can't get over God's goodness! Takes my breath away!

It was great to see my many friends this weekend! I hold you all close to my heart and love you guys! May God do something great in your lives this week!

Comes around about ONCE a month

Greetings from the Conaways!!

I am sorry to all my friends and family who constantly check my blog only to be let down because nothing new has been going on worth blogging... well I am here to tell you there have been plenty of things worthy of posting here; however, I have been completely and utterly exhausted from school and the hours I continuously put in. It is never ending! The work is rediculous but will make me stronger. I am always writing some sort of paper, usually! That is probably the main reason this is neglected!
As, I write this blog I sit in bed in our home in Springdale! Jeff and I are over here for the weekend because he brought his team to a 7 on 7 competition to get them as much experience with the new offense as possible! I tell you, this day has been long, overwhelming and exciting all at the same time! Long because I woke up around 5:30 am and I am still up writing this, overwhelming because I came back to my home that is still for sale and it is bittersweet, and exciting because Jeff and I have been able to already see so many people who we have missed and have gotten to catch up...oh and exciting because it's time for some FOOTBALL!!!
I love being a coach's wife and everything that goes with it. I love that these kids keep me feeling young even when I am not! I love encouraging kids to better their lives and strive for something, I love most of all the influence my husband has on his football players! I thank God daily for what a Godly influential man he has placed in my life! Saturday Jeff and I will be celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary! We will celebrate with football, but it is celebrating and that's all that matters! These have been the best 5 years of my life and it has only seemed to get better. With every new adventure God continues to bless our marriage and our lives! So, with that I say to Jeff...I LOVE YOU AND AM MORE THANKFUL FOR YOU EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Just another note on our house: The house is being shown again Sunday July 13 at 11:30am! If you think of it or just after reading this, we would appreciate a short prayer asking God to sell our house soon! And that these people are the buyers for this house! Thanks again for all your prayers, concern and support!
We love you all and are thankful for you!
