It's time for another blog. I really don't like having such long periods of time between posts, but I guess that is just how life is right now. Stuff at the BSU is going good. We are ending the school year so things are pretty busy right now. We are finishing up some Bible Studies this week, we have pancake dinners during finals, movie nights, and several other things going on. I can't believe that school is wrapping up already. This year has flown by.

It's been a while since I have used the Idea prompter so I decided I would see what ideas it had today. It suggested coming up with titles for my autobiography. I thought this would be something fun to do, so here goes....

1. "There's always an adventure" - It seems like when my sister and I get together you never know what is going to happen. Some of the most random things that have happened in my life have happend when my sister and I are hanging out. We have a good time together and we laugh a lot.

2. "It's Jacque." - Because of the spelling of my name a lot of people miss pronounce my name. When I was growing up in school, I hated when we would have substitute teachers because when they would call roll they would always stop at my name and say "Ok, tell me if I pronounce this wrong.... jock?...jack?" and all of my schoolmates would say "It's Jacque". Even when I was in college I had a professor that called me Jack all semester and I finally got tired of correcting him, so I just let him call me Jack.

3. "No Driving in the Rain" - When I was sixteen I had a series of car wrecks all in the rain. Because of these car wrecks I hate driving in the rain and don't like other people driving in the rain. I get really anxious when I have to drive in the rain, or I know someone I love is driving in the rain. I try not to be anxious about it, but my husband will tell you it's pretty bad.

Well, I think that is it. I don't think I will be writing a autobiography anytime soon,but it's kinda fun to think about a possible title. What do you think about these? What would you title your autobiography?

We have been super busy! There has been so much going on with the BSU the last couple weeks. This past weekend we took a group of students to a Leadership conference. It was really good. It is sad to see some of our students getting ready to leave and move on, but I understand that it's just part of college ministry. On the other hand I really look forward to see what God has in store for us next year.
When we got back from the Conference Matt and I headed over to New Orleans for an engagement party for some friends. Our friends Daniel and Janna got engaged a couple weeks ago. Matt and I are so excited for them and can't wait to see them get married.

I have known Daniel for most of my life. We grew up together in Arkansas and grew up just blocks from each other. I would have never imagined growing up that we would be as close as we are today. Matt and I met Janna while we were at the seminary and we are so happy that they getting married! Congrats you guys! We love ya'll!

This week we have been busy at the BSU. We had an outdoor movie night and cookout to raise money for summer missions. We had a good time despite the fact that it was freezing outside, but we raised some money for our summer missionaries. I have a feeling that Matt and I are in the middle of a full on sprint to the end of the school year. Just because we have so much going on from now until the end of the school year. I can't believe that our first school year is almost done.

Well, this is what has been going on with us the last couple weeks. See you later!
