We are on day 10 of our Nebraska tour!

Hi Everybody!

We are on day 10 of our Nebraska tour!! That makes me sound so "professional", huh? I haven't had many tours, so have to talk it up all I can!

But it has been nice….really good crowds in number and in spirit. We've been in remote areas and the percent of attendance to population has been spectacular. Getting a lot of interest in these areas hosting Cowboy Churches, so coordinator Tim Rust (NE Cowboy Church Association) is pleased.

We will be in Valentine this afternoon, then I am headed south for home. Next weekend, I am in Bismarck and Hot Springs, AR. THEN….Pamper Me! We are almost all full, so if you are still "up in the air" about coming or not, be sure to register like….QUICK!!!

Also, this afternoon at 4:30 CST is one of my favorite Cowboy Church episodes we've done. It will re-air on RFD Monday 2:30 PM, Tuesday 12:30 AM, and Friday 7:30 AM.

Be sure to watch. Please pray that the finances will continue to come in for Cowboy Church on RFDtv…people are responding, but we need the continued support.

The family has been really busy with the fall roundup/shipping of cattle. We've been blessed with summer rains, so the weight gain was good. Samuel won a go-round in Calf Roping at Little Rock this week, and Lucchese is busy at the salon in Pasadena, CA. I am so proud of my kids, and when I am home, it is so good to sit at the table and have our talks….amazing how much closer I am to them than ever before…God is amazing. Each segment of their becoming adults has been fun.

The new Christmas cd "I'll Be Home for Christmas" is available to order now. I think you will enjoy the new songs we've added to our pre-existing list of song titles.

Please continue to pray for Jill Van Noy. She is a strong, positive person, but really needs our prayers; Kelli Word will have her operation in November for the torn rotater cuff; Jim Odle is healing up….pray that he would slow down!

In the last 3 years, I have gone through many changes in my life. Most of these changes I believe were for the better, but one that wasn't good was to gain 30 pounds because I was adjusting to living a single, happier life. Sonic Drive-In was just too easy!

In January, I began to get control of it (because Reba agreed with me that I was overweight - ha! good sister!) and made the decision to not only get thinner, but get healthier. With the help of Dr. Cindy (who will be at Pamper Me), friends who walked with me, a work out regimen called Crossfit, and a drastic changing of my diet, I have lost a total of 40 pounds. I feel more balanced, my knees and ankles don’t hurt, my blood pressure went down, and I am able to maintain the schedule I have.

Never before have I been more aware of how we are killing ourselves with our diet and lack of exercise. I encourage you to make good choices…we won't be able to rely on a prescription to fix our problems much longer…in fact, many don't fix it…only deal with symptoms.

Here's to you: I challenge you to take care of yourself. You owe it to you spouse, kids, and grandkids. No "pop"; no fried foods; more good water; start moving, and be in constant communion with our Lord. Start with that and be on your way to be an efficient machine for the Body of Christ.

In His love,
