You remember in my last post I told you what a hard time Jennifer and I was having trying to make a video?
Jennifer is a genius, because she managed to edit, and post the video. FINALLY! There has to be a better way of going about this. We are more than welcome for suggestions if any of you know a better way of taking a video, editing it, and posting it.
This is a video of her doing my make-up for my wedding in May.
We are tossing around making a lot of these little videos in the coming weeks. Of trying something new to us every week and videoing it. You guys will have to let me (or Jennifer) what you think. Even if you don't usually comment, please do on this one, I really want your opinion!
A few things:
We joke and laugh at each other ALOT!
I never noticed how much of a accent I have.
Jennifer did an amazing job on the makeup.
OK that is it! Please let me know what you think! Or if you have any suggestions on something you would like us to try.

At this point that is about all I can say.
My friend Jennifer and I have tried now twice to make a video to post to her blog with no success! We record them, and download them and then... you wanna know what happens...A BIG FAT NOTHING! That's what!
She wanted to do a how to on applying fake eyelashes over the summer (her blog is a beauty blog, much different than the nothingness you find here) and after we recorded it, and spent hours waiting on it to download it was just lost into the great abyss!
Yesterday we recorded a hilarious video of her doing my makeup and we have had a terrible time getting it uploaded.
Poor Jen, she worked on it forever last night and about midnight I got a dreaded text stating that she got to the very end of editing it and lost the entire thing! I'm not gonna lie, I teared up a tad!
So really I don't know what to do at this point. I really would like to share my Biff with you guys, so that you can love her like I do, but for some reason the cosmos don't like that idea!
Does anyone have any advice on how to combine two or more video's on YouTube, edit them, and then post them? Can you even combine videos on YouTube? Any help at this point would be great!

This book is about having a love so strong in Christ, that every other love in your life fails in comparison.
WOW, that hit me hard. I think it would hit all Mommy's hard. To love Someone more than the sweet miracle you gave birth to. But that's what He calls us to do.
In the small group we were asked a question, and to tell you the truth I didn't like my answer to the question. If I'm truly being transparent with you I didn't even like the form of panic rising in my throat when I thought about the question.
"If Jesus was to ask you to drop everything, to leave your life to go serve others somewhere on the other side of the world for and unknown amount of time would you go?"
Could you leave your husband, your kids, your work, your house, friends? To be obedient to the One who calls you to serve? Would you hesitate? Would you try to bargain your way out of it?
For me not only, I'm being honest here, would I have a hard time going but just the thought of that being asked puts a lump in my throat.
Below are two videos for the book. I can't wait to jump in and see what kind of changes I need to make of my life to have a radical love for Jesus.
And soon, when Jesus calls me to do something radical, there will be no lump...just total surrender.
So what about you? Do you feel like you at this exact moment in your life feel like you could drop everything and go?

Jen has always had this natural talent for making things beautiful. She can sew like nobodies business! The things she can do with a T-shirt, well, that deserves it's own post. She can also do makeup that's flawless, and do nails that makes you wonder why in the world she went through the trouble of nursing school with such a gift :)She's just a talented person (she's also left handed I have a theory that has something to do with it). Today this post is about a new blog she has started with all her beauty secrets on it. Here is just a sample of some of her work...
I need to add here that all of these she done BY HAND! No airbrushing! There has been so so much more but these were the only ones that I could nab from her Facebook page. I think I have maybe talked her into doing some videos, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. So, go check her out I promise you'll love her as much as I do.
(Well not AS MUCH you know cause she's MY BFF)
