Prayers for Little Bree

This sweet baby girl is my 6 month old niece, Bree Cook (Justin and Kari's daughter). We just found out - very unexpectedly - that she has a rare form of cancer called Neuroblastoma. We originally thought (last night) that it was Wilm's Tumor, which is much easier to treat, with higher survival rates. As they just found out last night, we are still learning about her condition. Please pray for the healing of this sweet little girl. She is the most lovable litte thing and is always happy. Her parents are obviously devastated and will need prayers of comfort and strength. I'll give updates when I have them.

Why I'm SORE every week....

Many of my closes friends know that it's very common for me to say, "Ooh, I'm so sore". Well here is the reason:


Let me introduce you to my awesome personal trainer - Greg Lake. I've always been a bit of an exercise and health freak, but Greg has taken me (or shall I say, my tooshy) to a higher level! I am sore every single week from our workouts. Yeah it hurts - oh, does it hurt, but I like it. I know something is working when I'm so sore I can't sit, or when I can barely lift my two year old up. :-) Sometimes I call him Satan and sometimes I yell at him, but I know he's only pushing me because I pay him to. :-)

So, if you're ready to feel the burn, give him a call. You won't be disappointed. I tried 4 other trainers before I found Greg and he's the best by far. He comes to my home gym each week, so if any of you want to work out close to home, I'd let you use it. Otherwise, he has a gym in Mesa or can meet you at some of the local gyms.
