The Hunt is On

We used to go to a church that we LOVED, it was a church my husband found online and on our first visit decided it was the church for us.  It was the first church we tried when we moved to Houston about 3 years ago.  Of course we then moved about an hour away from that church.  It just was too far to drive every week to go there so we tried another church I had attended for a bible study and it was about 15-20 minutes from our place.  We ended up really liking that church as well.  But, of course, we moved again. It would take us close to an hour from our new home to get to this church so once again, and with a new baby, this was just not feasible.

SO, we are now on the hunt again for a new church.  We aren't particularly biased as to the denomination. We usually go to non denominational but the last church we attended was baptist, the bottom lines are our hearts are open to a new church home.  I want a church that has a good children's program as we now have a little one to raise and raising him with God at the center of his life is very important to me.  I also want a church that I can attend and feel uplifted and recharged for the week, not guilty for what my downfalls or for things I may or may not do. A good worship service is also important to me.

I have one we are going to try next time I am off work that looks promising, I have faith that God will bring us exactly what we need!

We have tried one church already that we felt was not the church for us. I know our church home is out there and I pray about it often.

On that note, I also really need to do an overhaul on my quiet time with God.  Since we moved and had that chaos followed by the birth of our son, my quiet time has taken a back seat which I really hate.  God has blessed us beyond what I deserve and I am so thankful for all we have been given and spending time in the word and with God really needs to make its way back to priority numero uno...pronto!!

I am really looking for a good bible study to participate in as well as a devotional book that has some nice quick devotions that can be done amidst my busy life of being both a housewife, mommy, and working woman.
Do you know of any good devotional books I could try?

Anyone in the houston/sugarland area know of any good churches you recommend? Or a bible study they know is starting up soon in the sienna plantation/sugarland area?

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

Katie- We live inside the loop in Houston and are looking for a new church too! I am Baptist and my Hubby is Methodist but we tend to visit more Baptist churches. Our favorite so far has been First Baptist of Houston. Second Baptist felt too big and very impersonal. We are probably only going to live inside the loop for another 8 months or so then move out to the suburbs though so then we will just have to find another one. Let me know if you find one that you love!! =)

I go to a women's Bible study affiliated with Ecclesia in Montrose, but rarely make the drive to that church anymore. The next study will most likely be Beth Moore and will be in the Galleria area in the fall.

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
