Where has the time gone? It is almost November and time is flying by. I am finishing up my last semester of school and honestly, I just want to be done already. I am ready to just have a job, craft, cook yummy food for my amazing husband and blog my life away. I know, I know, that is probably not how life will be, but it sure would be nice.

Jordan has been very busy with his internship, if you know coach Condra then you know he is quite the slave driver. I am so glad that God has given Jordan the opportunity to learn the ups and downs of coaching from such a kind and Godly man. The Lord is so very faithful. I am also impressed with how much time Jordan has been putting into keeping his skills up with bball. He is ready to bring his A game for alumni game! lol! I am so proud of the man he is becoming and it is such an honor to watch him daily grow and strive to live a life that is glorifying to God.

I have had a rough week this week, but today has been an expectational day. My sweet friend Jodie gerling brought me panera and it was awesome. We got to chat and laugh and just see into one an other's heart more. I also had a wonderful meal with a parent from GBC and I was so blessed by her kind words and loving encouragement. I then had a little pick me up with my sweet Bobbin'. She is so dear to me and I value our time so very much. I am looking forward to the evening with Jordan, we are going to have a late dinner together and watch a red box, if time allows us to do so. As you can see, we Strom's do not miss out on much.

I am terribly sorry that I have slacked in the recipe of the week, but this past week we wanted some quesadilla's so, not having a maker I tried it on the stove, it was awesome! They were so tasty and I did not follow a recipe! Thanks to the big man upstairs for blessing me with some basic cooking knowledge!

We are eager to discover what God has in store for us next! Please pray that we would be faithful to his will and that we would grow in his everlasting love.

In Christian Love,

Baller Status and the Jayhawks (It's real in the streets)

Your requests and wishes have been granted. I am writing on our blog for the first time. Yes, it is me Jordan. Life has been pretty stinking awesome as of late. Becca and I have been working and doing school like crazy lately. She is working at with the GYM at GBC and changing lives left and right. I think she has led like 30 people to Christ and exorcised maybe 20 demons in the past two weeks alone! She is sort of like the female version of Charles Swindol or Andy Stanley. No, but in all seriousness work is going great for her. She has been busy working on planning youth events and helping small group leaders work with their kids. She really loves her job and loves seeing the kids grow in their faith and I think that alone is rewarding enough for her. Becca is also finishing up her degree at MCC and she is very busy with her homework. Working through a course load that includes Bonhoeffer, Rusty Thornley, and visits to crazy churches can be quite taxing, but she is a playing like a champ and pushing through toward the goal.

Speaking of Champions, has anyone been watching my favorite football teams? The KC Chiefs have been playing like, well.... like they are going to make the playoffs! On the other hand, my other favorite team, the Kansas Jayhawks, have been putting me through a roller coaster of emotion. They start the year losing to NDSU and then go on to beat then #15 Ga Tech and then lose the next two of three. All of this has me ready for college hoops season and the arrival of Josh Selby and Royce Woolridge.

Basketball season means one thing. It's cold and I don't want to walk outside unless it absolutely is necessary. One reason that it will be absolutely necessary to go outside is for my internship or DFE. This is part of my degree and I am working with the legendary Shawn Condra for my DFE. He is the AD and Men's Basketball Coach at MCC and he is letting me work with him for the school year. So far it has been a ton of fun and I have been learning a lot from him. Besides working with Shawn Con I have been reffing flag football and Substitute teaching at RiCo. Life has been crazy, but it's so awesome to be able to come home to my wife and share life with her. Things have been awesome and so has my first post! Hopefully I'll be allowed to post more. If you the readers and fans want...

In Christian Love,
