Operation “Fortitude” Fitness (Month #6)

I don’t know about you all… but I’m a little sweaty.

Ok, not sweaty at this very moment as I type, but I was sweaty earlier. (I showered. You are welcome.) This operation fortitude fitness business is sweaty work. Plus, it’s now July in Georgia.

Yikes. Can someone hand me a towel?

Anywho, June was a good month for my “Smart Changes” for 2012. (Click here to read the original post to get caught up to speed.) [Read more...]

Wake Up & See (Five Minute Friday)

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… Ok, at least the moment I really look forward to all week– It’s Five Minute Friday!

For those of you just joining our 7 Days Time Journey… Each Friday, I link up with The Gypsy Mama. She gives us a prompt. Then we write. For five minutes flat. No overthinking, no  excessive editing.

It’s been a crazy week in the world of ministry, so enough chitty chatting from my end. Let’s get to it.

Todays prompt: SEE

GO! [Read more...]

Operation Fortitude Fitness (Month #4)

Crossing the Missouri border! YES!

Is it just me, or does it seem a little bit crazy that 2012 is already 1/3 of the way completed?!? Apparently time not only flies when you are having fun, but also when you run a personal ministry. (Fortunately, for me, those two are one and the same for me… most days :-)

April was legit. 7 Days Time Ministry continues to reach new levels (insert happy dance here!) and I feel like I’m kinda sorta getting back on track for my Getting Smart with 2012 goals. (Click here to read the full story from January.) [Read more...]

Operation: Fortitude Fitness (Month #3)


Oh dearest readers… March was certainly “a month” for the Knobloch family. I have always hear that it was supposed to come in like a lion, out like a lamb (or visa versa.)

But for me, it kind of felt like the whole month was one big ol’ roaring lion. Baring it’s teeth. In my grill. Chasing me down the street.

However… It didn’t catch me! The Lamb seemed to save me. (Jesus = Lamb. Get it? Look at me go with my play on words. Whew.)

We are kicking off a new month (and that’s no April fool’s joke) so it is time to start fresh. But in the meantime, here is my accountability update from my “Smart” changes for 2012. (Read the Original Post here.) [Read more...]

Pumping Iron with Jesus


“Ninety-eight…ninety-nine… one-hundred!”

Oh hey. Didn’t see you there. Sorry, I was just working out… you know, pumping some iron, getting in shape. (Does that sound a little too much like Will Ferrell in Anchorman?)

Obviously, I am not pumping iron… but instead am clicking keys. At a pretty rapid pace, I might add. But I didn’t get to this typing speed overnight. [Read more...]

Hurt So Good (Five Minute Friday)

Today, I am linking up with The Gypsy Mama and hopping aboard the “Five Minute Friday” experience. She gives us a prompt. Then we write, fingers flowing, purely for the joy of writing. For five minutes. And five minutes only. No editing. No profound outlines and thought development.

Just write. So today, join me on my first Five Minute Friday… Todays prompt: ACHE.

GO.  [Read more...]

Operation: Fortitude Fitness Month #2


Greetings once again, beloved followers. It is officially March, and according to the weather reports, it looks like it came in like a Lion for areas in my home state of Kansas with tornados and whatnot. So before I get on with my update, let’s remember to pray for  Harveyville and Pittsburg, KS as well as the other towns impacted by Lion-like weather (Branson, MO and various towns in Illinois.)
