This week's Church Drummer CHallenge includes music from Bethel Music -  Lion And The Lamb. This is a new song for me to learn to play as a church drummer.

I get to play drums again this Sunday (July 16, 2017) for Grace Crossing Church in Beavercreek, Ohio.

My experience as a church drummer at GraceCriossing Church has continued to be gret, with my band mates granting me patience and encouragement.

This situation is different for me as a church drummer because of the limited amount of time the band actually practices together. On average, we practice all of the songs for the service in a total of about 2-3 hours together. We practice Thursday night for about 1.5-2 hours, and again on Sunday morning for 1 hour before the first church service.  

I practice at home to get the feel of the music and the transitions down.

Military Families: Check out Project Sanctuary

I remember when the yellow "Support Our Troops" stickers and magnets were so popuplar that it seemed like they were on every other vehicle on the road. It was great to see people rally behind the troops. Now, after more than 10 years of war, we still need to support our troops - at home, as well as abroad.

What a lot of people don't realize is that the impact of deployments lasts a long time. Having to carry on with life while separated from your loved one is difficult enough. Unfortunately, many military families are destroyed during the "reintegration" of the military member back into the family.

I found the follwoing transcript from CBS about Project Sanctuary. It is "a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide therapeutic, curative, supportive and recreational activities to veterans, active military personnel, their spouses and children in a leisure environment."

Great idea!

5K Training Running Activity 5 miles

I hit the treadmill around 12:40 this afternoon, for the first time in more than a week. I ended up running my fastest time yet for the 5K - 26:21.

Yep, I'm still running with Outcast playing in my Sansa MP3 player. I finally made a playlist of the best songs for running.

Today's total time was 51 minutes total and I finished 5 miles altogether - 4 miles running and 1 mile walking.

I felt good overall and I'm starting to feel comfortable with the faster pace.

Back to School: Doing My Daughter's Hair

The start of school means that I have to work my magic on my daughter's hair in the mornings. Yay!

Here are some pictures of me and my daughter on the second day of school for 2012. I'm finishing her hair before we move into the next step of our morning routine - breakfast.

Doing my daughter's hair has never been a problem for me. I've been doing her hair since she was an infant. I've done mom's hair a few times as well. I just can't get my hands to cooporate for braids and plaits, so I just stick to twists.

President Signs Military Spouses Residency Relief Act

I don't get excited about much, but I am very excited about this. I no longer have to do all the paperwork and go through the hassle of changing my residency every time we PCS (move). Plus, now I get to keep my residency with a tax-free state. BONUS!

Military spouses need to check the following article out. It gives more details about the Military Spouses Residency Relief Act (MSRRA). Also, keep in mind that this makes voting easier for military spouses!
