I have been wanting to try this vlogging thing out for awhile but didn't think we had the capability until my 12 year old told me I could use our skype cam! Wow! After a short tutorial and a lot of mocking by him I have completed my first (and possibly my last) vlog.

I don't photograph well and video is even worse so bear with me! I decided to join up with this carnival (all I can seem to muster up these days) that I saw on P.S. He loves you.

You can check out all the vlogemotion blogs at Fort Thompson and he is even giving away a flip camera to one lucky winner so if your feeling really brave, or funny, or silly, or stupid...go check it out!

I really felt your frustration in the video. I hope you fix your plumbing situations quickly.

Great work.

I dont know what to say that can honor how great that was. This was the definition of Vlogemotions. I felt your frustration and pain thru the entire piece. I am also feeling extremely proud of you for overcoming your fears in doing this. It is a big step I know.

That scripture is very near and dear to my heart as it was the passage I remember my dad reading (hes a pastor) at all of my grandparents funerals. They had fought the good fight and they had finished their course, and for sure they kept their faith.

You did a remarkable job, and in the face of adveristy you have inspired and witnessed to many.

I will keep you guys in my prayers, and look forward to your next vlogemotion.

Love and Prayers,

It was really nice to meet you and I hope that you have a better week!

Great job on camera tho! You have a soft spoken voice...Unlike me!!!

My chest is puffed out like a proud proud hen!

Because you totally stepped out and not only shared your "real voice" but HIS words of Love!

I know without a doubt when we give freely HIS words of truth we are blessed in more ways we can imgaine!

So hang in there because like you say "If HE brought to it HE'll bring your through it!"

Keep Vloging!!!
You did great and I really enjoyed "seeing in person"!!!

You will also noticed it gets easier each time!

You are BEAUTIFUL! You have such a lovely demeanor, and it was a pleasure to get to see you vlog -- I mean that truly. I hope you continue to do this :)

And yes, your frustration came straight through the computer. I have always thought that plumbing problems of any kind are the worst . . . and usually the most expensive, too!

Hang in there - I'm praying for you :)

You did a great job (even through the valley). I'm sorry you guys are having such a time!

It was nice meeting you. Next week will be better!

Come over to my blog/vlog when you can.

I hopped over from Tim's to check out your video. HAVE been through it this week! Why is it everything seems to happen at once??? We are having an expensive week as well, so I truly relate to what you're going through.

You did a great job with your vlog! I had to get my son's help, too, so don't feel bad. :o)

Blessings to you...

Such a fantastic job on your first vlog! I'm so sorry that you've been experiencing more than your share of frustrations lately. Just remember that God is ever near and He WILL see you through! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Wish I knew how to do this...I enjoyed reading your blog today. I am still so new to the land of blog, but so loving reading others stories. Everyone has a story and so many of them are so touching....
Hope you will stop by for a visit.
The May give-away has started and this month there will be 10 winners. I will be blogging from Disney World soon...
