New Bible Studies

We're starting 2 new Bible studies at my church. The adult and teen Bible classes have merged into a men's and women's class for the next 12 or so weeks. The women are using a book by Ann Spangler & Jean E. Syswerda called "Women of the Bible." The men are using a book called "Twelve Ordinary Men" by John MacArthur.

I'm a little jealous of the guys because they get to do a John MacArthur study! (I may wear a fake mustache or pretend like I'm doing some really important technical stuff over by the sound system so I can listen in on the guys I'm really looking forward to the women's study, too. I've been wanting to do a 'women of the Bible' study for close to a year now, so I know this one will be good. It's nice to have just the women together sometimes, partly for the fellowship and partly because there's a lot more we can talk about when it's just the girls.

Just Dance for health

I have a Wii and I recently got Just Dance 2. It's SOO fun! People who are avid dancers are always in great shape. When I was little I took a year of ballet - thanks to my siser-in-law - and I danced ALL the time to whatever music that was playing...while walking to the fridge, while brushing my teeth, while eating at the dinner table...but other than that I have NO dance experience whatsoever and it really showed haha.

Dancing is an unbelievable workout, but fun at the same time which tricks you into thinking that you're not actually working out. My favorite thing is "just sweat" which gives you 3 easy to hard programs to track your progress during the week. A relative of mine has only been doing it for 2 weeks and has already lost weight and a few inches around the waste.  Good job!
I'm already thinking about buying Just Dance 3.
