Dear Readers,

As most of ya’ll know Chris, my husband, is in OUTSIDEtheCAMP, a local Christian rock band. This is not just a hobby or something these guys do on the side! This is a ministry that they have been able to use to reach out to people of all ages. This ministry is very important to me as well and this is why I am sending you this letter!

This past August they were invited to Nashville where they played a showcase for some different music label representatives. While they were there they got to meet a lot of people and make some great contacts.

Now, because of that trip they have been given an awesome opportunity to go back to Nashville December 6th – 13th to record 3 songs that will then be passed on to some major music labels.

This is not going to be a cheap trip. Each song will cost about $1000.00 plus the cost of being off work, food for 5 guys, and gas!

Please take the time to pray and ask God what you can do for OUTSIDEtheCAMP! Whether it is through money or prayers both will be GREATLY appreciated!

If you are able to support the band financially please email me at:

Here is a Message from OUTSIDEtheCAMP
Hello! We are Outside the Camp, a christian alternative rock band from Dallas, Texas and we need your help!
Okay, so we have the opportunity to go back to Nashville, Tennessee to record three new songs so they can be sent to some labels in hope of us getting on a label, but that can't happen without your help!
We are going to go in December so lets try and make this happen!
You can donate by going to our kickstarted site:
If you don't know, with kickstarter if you dont get to the goal it all goes back! It's all or nothing, so even if you can't donate a lot, every little bit it would help out so much.
You can check us out on myspace, facebook, twitter, and itunes!
Lets try and get this going!
Please watch our video(link below for the full video), although the video names a few things we need money for, this project is strictly for recording in nashville.
Thank You!

Life as I Know it . . .

. . . is NoThInG like I would have imagined when I was in High School!

We all have been there, sitting in your Senior class and you have to write about where you think you will be in 5 years, 10 years, 15 years and so on. Well, like I said before things are not how I planned. My plan for my life was to skip college, get married right out of High School, and be a mom as soon as possible after that! That is all I wanted for my life, to be the best wife and mom that I could be!

Well, here is what's wrong with the above plan. . . Everything I have been saying was MY plan for my life, I didn't stop to consider GOD's plan!

Life After High School . . .

Graduated from high school in May 2005

College from 2005-2007

Chris became a part of OUTSIDEtheCAMP - 2007

Married in May 2007

Started teaching in Aug 2007

Up to this point I has completely fine with how life had changed from my original plan. I just knew that soon enough I would be able to have things just the way I planned!
Once again I was leaving out a very important key to this plan . . . I was completely aware that Chris felt God had called him to be a part of OUTSIDEtheCAMP and that this would be his ministry. I was also aware that it was going to take some sacrificing but since I didn't stop and think realistically I was not aware of just how much of a sacrifice it would actually be.

We lived on our own until April of 09 when Chris' company that he worked for closed. It was very hard to think that we had to go back home! That was not part of my plan!

Our original goal was to be out of their house my July of 09. We figured that would give Chris enough time to get a good job and we could be on our own again!

God had OTHER plans!

The job search for Chris was not an easy one because we were looking for a job that would work around OUTSIDEtheCAMP's schedule. God had begun to open a LOT of doors for the band and it soon became apparent to us and those around us that this ministry was far from coming to an end. After finding a job that would work around the shows, practices, traveling and recording we found that the income was not enough to live on our own. I am blessed to have parents who understand the ministry of OUTSIDETHE CAMP and how much of a sacrifice it has been for us and they have let us continue to live with them.

There are times that I become very upset that this is NOT what I wanted or planned for my life. How am I suppose to be a stay at home mom with no home and how I suppose to raise children if we can't afford groceries for ourselves half the time?
The funny thing is when I begin to through a pity party for myself and tell Chris I am tired of not having things go my way, God steps in and show me a little of His plan for my life right now. I realized, how could God trust me with anything greater since I have not stopped to be thankful and become the best I can be at what I have already been given.

So the moral of this LONG story is . . . GOD has a plan for my life that I can not even begin to understand right now! It is better and so far more interesting than I could have ever imagined for myself! And when I get frustrated that I am not living life how I planned, I stop and think . . .

God left Heaven, he left Paradise to be beaten and killed to be our Saviour.
I left a 2 bedroom apartment, and lost a little income to be apart of a ministry that can reach those I would have never met otherwise!
Needless to say it does not begin to compare!

So really, Why am I complaining?
Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Port Aransas

This past weekend we had a chance to get away and go to Port Aransas with the In-Laws . . . and believe it or not I had a great time ;)
No really, I am blessed with some great in-laws on both sides :]

Chris, Me, Michelle, Cierra, Tony and Sarah

We left EARLY friday morning and headed to Port Aransas. On the way there we made some stops. We stopped at Katz's Deli on 6th Street in Austin then we drove to San Marcos to do a little shopping and then we set out for Port A.

Chris and I at Katz's Deli

We finally made it!

As soon as we got there we put all our stuff in the beach house and we got to the beach as fast as we could :]
We had an awesome 2 days relaxing and playing at the beach. We even took the time to act like a couple kids and build a sand castle :)

Life Means So Much

Every day is a journal page
Every man holds a quill and ink
And there's plenty of room for writing in
All we do is believe and think
So will you compose a curse
Or will today bring the blessing
Fill the page with rhyming verse
Or some random sketching

Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
Life means so much
Life means so much

Every day is a bank account
And time is our currency
So nobody's rich, nobody's poor
We get 24 hours each
So how are you gonna spend
Will you invest, or squander
Try to get ahead
Or help someone who's under

Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much
Life means so much
Life means so much

Has anybody ever lived who knew the value of a life
And don't you think giving is all
What proves the worth of yours and mine

Teach us to count the days
Teach us to make the days count
Lead us in better ways
That somehow our souls forgot
Life means so much

Every day is a gift you've been given
Make the most of the time every minute you're living
-Chris Rice-
God, Please help me to be thankful and make the most of the time I have with the ones I love and to remember that we are not promised our next breath!
God Bless,

Help Us Out

My friend Amy and I are trying to devise a contest to help motivate us into staying fit while the summer rages on. It's so hard to remember the importance of fitness when there's so many other things that we could be doing. Leave me a comment with your ideas for what we can do during the contest, and to win. I may throw in a little prize for the one we pick. And if you join us, there may be a little somethin' there for you too.

Check out
and give us your ideas!

Little by Little . . .

. . . inch by inch
It feels like it is taking forever while I am in the moment of eating a Garden Burger, or Oatmeal, or meal replacement bar while everyone around me is eating Mac n Cheese, Pizza, Garlic Bread and on and on I can go but looking back it has gone by fast! Don't get me wrong I have had my moments of splurging but then I feel guilty and have to work out even longer that day :)

Since working out I have been able to do more like . . . . DRUM ROLL PLEASE . . . . . I jogged a WHOLE MILE last week and along with jogging I can also do a REAL sit-up now!

I'm not done yet, the competition at the gym end this coming Monday (the 17th) but I am actually starting to enjoy working out. :) This week while working out my awesome sister-in-law (who is in the competition with me) saw that her and I were both tied for 3rd place! It felt good to think I was doing well enough to make it on the board!

So here is where I'm at so far . . .

March 13th - 191 lbs. :(
March 22nd - 188lbs.
March 29th - 187lbs
April 5th - 183lbs
April 12th - 183lbs . . . I lost Nothing the whole dang week . . . ugh!
April 19th - 178lbs
April 26th - 177lbs
May 3rd - 176lbs
May 10th - 174lbs!!!!! - YAHOOOOO
I am so glad that I made this commitment though. It is so worth it!

Great Weekend!

I wasn't expecting to loose a lot this week because that is my pattern. I don't know why but it seems to work out that way. I loose 1lbs then I loose 3 or more.
So this week should be a good one!
I am only 12lbs away from my goal!

I also had an awesome week with my some of my friends from college!

Me, Bailey and Mandie!
I love these girls! We went out to dinner Friday night when they got here and stayed up and talked until 1 in the morning! The next day we headed out for some yummy Starbucks and Pedicures!
After we did some shopping we decieded while they were here we should get tattoos, so that's what we did! ;)

Mandie and I at the Tattoo Shop

Mandie and Myself getting our new tattoos!

Mandie got "LOVE HEALS" on her wrist and I got the Texas on my wrist!

We had so much fun catching up and hanging out! I love and miss these girl so much!

How low can you go?

March 13th - 191 lbs. :(
March 22nd - 188lbs.
March 29th - 187lbs
April 5th - 183lbs
April 12th - 183lbs . . . I lost Nothing the whole dang week . . . ugh!
April 19th - 178lbs - I can not remember the last
time my weight was below 180 . . . Whoop Whoop!!

They also took all our measurement again last night. I was not expecting that much i just figured a few centimeters here and there . . . I did better than I thought!

All the #'s are rounded off because I could not remember all the .5's, 3/4th's and all that other good stuff! :)

So how am I doing this . . .

Breakfast- most of time I eat a 1 1/2 cups of low calorie cereal with about 4oz of skim milk. Lunch - High Fiber Oatmeal with sugar free pudding or apple sauce Dinner - I honestly eat whatever is around I just read all the details about it and eat half of what I would usually eat! Snack - Fiber Plus bar and Fruit Drinks - I have a glass of V8 Fusion because I am not a fan of veggies and I drink LOTS of water with an occasional Diet Coke!

On average I workout about 4 times a week for about 1 1/2 hrs each time and combine cardio and weights! As long as this keeps workin' I'm going to stick with it!

Yesterday was a great Monday!

"Get on the Ball"

Well, last week I didnt get anywhere (weight wise) :( I stayed exactly the same . . . needless to say I'm working a little harder this week!
I just wanted to drop a quick line to say,
"HaPpY BiRtHdAy HeAtHeR!!! You are getting OLD ;)"

Heather, Me and Amy!

Here's a little joke to make you smile!

Once there was a golfer whose drive landed on an anthill. Rather than move
the ball, he decided to hit it where it lay. He gave a mighty swing. Clouds of dirt and
sand and ants exploded from the spot. Everything but the golf ball. It sat in the same
So he lined up and tried another shot. Clouds of dirt and sand and ants went flying
again. The golf ball didn't even wiggle. Two ants survived.

One dazed ant said to the other,

HaPpY FiRdAy!!

March 22nd - 188lbs.
March 29th - 187lbs
April 5th - 183lbs!!!
This week I am going to stay strong and keep working hard!
My goal is to be 165lbs. by May 17th
(thats when the Slim Down Challenge ends but I plan to continue to work out)!
I'm only 18lbs away!!

. . . but GRACE!

During this week before Easter Sunday my church is having a service Wed night -Sat night!
Last night the sermon was awesome!
We learned about a man who walked out of the hospital 2 years ago. If you think about it we hear about people walking out of the hospital all the time and it doesn't seem that special until you know the reason he was in the hospital and what he has gone through.

You can't know how Good it is until you know how Bad it was!
So here is more of the story . . . the man that walked out of the hospital was Alcidas Moreno. This man is a window washer in New York. Alcidas and his brother washed the windows on the big Manhattan skyscraper buildings. On Dec 7th, 2007 while they were on the 47th floor (about 500ft up) the scaffolding collapse and they fell straight to the ground. Alcidas' brother died instantly. Alcidas on the other hand was taken to the hospital, he was given 24 units of donated blood and suffered MANY broken bones and collapsed organs!
On January 4th, 2008 he had movement in all his limbs and he was breathing on his own!
So now, when you hear a man walked out of the hospital 2 years ago you know how big of a deal it really is!
You can't know how Good it is until you know how Bad it was!

If you are a Christian you are Saved by Jesus and his blood on the cross, but if you look at us today what are we really saved from? We have our cars, our house, more food than we need, family, friends, nice clothes, we get our hair and nails done, etc. We are blessed beyond what we need! It is not that any of those things are a bad thing it is that . . .

You can't know how Good it is until you know how Bad it was!
We take advantage of our blessings everyday. We forget how bad it was. We forget that Jesus had to die so that we would not get what we deserve. When we were born it was in our nature to sin but what makes it worse is that God has given us rules that we can follow and yet we choose to disobey them!
Think about it. . .
If we sinned ONLY 3 times a day
Times 365 days in the year
Times 85 years in our life time
That is about 90,000 sins in your lifetime
Multiply that time everyone in the world and remember Jesus died for ALL those sins!
We deserve death!
In the beginning of Romans 6:23 it says, "For the wages of sin is death . . ."
This is the word of God and since it is his word He also has to follow it but lucky for us the verse continues . . .
". . . but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Jesus knew we didn't have a chance without Him! He knew that without His GRACE we would die and that would be it, it would be our only option but GRACE stepped in and gave us another option, ETERNAL LIFE!
You can't know how Good it is until you know how Bad it was!
Take time to remember what we have now and what we have been saved from!
Take time to thank God for His son, Jesus!

Slim Down Challenge

So . . . I joined a gym over Spring Break!
When I joined they were promoting the Slim Down Challenge so I though,
"Why Not, that sounds like a great idea!"
The Challenge started Monday, March 22nd and last for the next 8 weeks!
We have to
1. write down what we eat
2. keep track of the Calories and Fat grams
3. meet with a trainer once a week
And here is the best part . . .
Whoever looses the most % weight at the end of the 8 weeks wins
So needless to say I am in it to win it!
I had to weight in and get my picture taken and all that not so fun stuff last Monday and today I have to weight in! I have been working to get to the gym 3-4 times a week and I'm looking for healthy snack and meals that I actually like (that has actually been easier than I thought it would be). Now I just have to stick with it . . . easier said than done!
So I thought . . . to keep myself accountable and to help me work harder I would post my weight each week and hopefully we can watch it go down together! So here I go!
March 13th - 191 lbs.
March 22nd - 188lbs.
March 29th - ????? I will have to let you know later!
Wish Me Luck!

Wake Up America!!!

"While You Were Sleeping"
by Casting Crowns
Oh little town of Bethlehem
Looks like another silent night
Above your deep and dreamless sleep
A giant star lights up the sky
And while you're lying in the dark
There shines an everlasting light
For the King has left His throne
And is sleeping in a manger tonight
Oh Bethlehem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
For God became a manAnd stepped into your world today
Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleepingWhile you were sleeping
Oh little town of Jerusalem
Looks like another silent night
The Father gave His only Son
The Way, the Truth, the Life had come
But there was no room for Him in the world He came to save
Jerusalem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
The Savior of the world is dying on your cross today
Jerusalem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleeping
While you were sleeping
United States of America
Looks like another silent night
As we're sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children
And while we're lying in the dark
There's a shout heard 'cross the eastern sky
For the Bridegroom has returned
And has carried His bride away in the night
America, what will we miss while we are sleeping
Will Jesus come againAnd leave us slumbering where we lay
America, will we go down in history
As a nation with no room for its King
Will we be sleeping
Will we be sleeping
United States of America
Looks like another silent night
We need to be praying for our Country and its Leaders
now more than ever!
Good Bless America

Weekend Tour

Last week Chris' band OUTSIDEtheCAMP was invited to replace a band on the Blue Tour with Manic Drive. Of course they said yes and the search began to find a van the would fit all the equipment + 5 guys and possible a merch girl (me). Well, needless to say with only 2 days to find a big van & no money to rent one we moved our sights to a Mini Van (wonderfully donated by my parents) and my car so that we could transport all the stuff and people! When we realized that I would have to drive my car I knew there was no way I would stay awake driving all over Texas so I enlisted the help of a good friend Damaris, she was a life saver!

Our weekend started out Friday at the Door in Plano

After the show we packed everything up and said our good byes at 12am, we headed to McAllen, Texas!

Casey "Baggz", Justin, Nick(graciously stepped in to play bass for the guys!), Dan, & Chris

Damaris and Me
We drove through the night and arrived in McAllen, Texas around 9:30am. We hung out outside most of the day because the weather was beautiful! The guys worked on teaching Nick the songs since he had never played with them before (he did GREAT by the way)!

Damaris and I decided to take a nap under a tree and the guys picked us some Clementines from a nearby tree!

After a long day of hanging out and napping the guys played an awesome outdoor show!

Once the show was finished and everything was packed up we set out at 12am to our next show in Sherman, Texas, which is 10hrs in the OTHER direction!
On top of being extremely sleep deprived we all where starting the smell a little funky because of the lack of showers so we made pit stop at Chris' grandparents house in Gunter for some MUCH needed cleaning & relaxing!

Finally we all smelled and look clean again! We then hit the road again and made our way to Sherman, where the guys played yet another awesome show!
The weekend was a BLAST! We were all TIRED and glad to be home Sunday night. For most of us, we all had to be up the next morning for work or school, but it was all worth it! I am very proud of the guys and everything they did this weekend!

Fun Friday!

Over Christmas Break Chris and I went to 2 White Elephant parties and in that process we came home with a Sombrero, which Chris is very proud of!
A few weeks ago we brought the sombrero over to Heather and Bret's to see how the Quads liked the hat.

Baxlyn didnt care and Kylee was scared of it!
(sorry no pictures of the girls)

As for Brody, he liked to look at it!

Korbin on the other hand likes to actually wear it!

Happy Friday Everyone,

Hope you have a great weekend!
