What IS A Project in Progress?

Since A Project in Progress is only a few days old, I though that this would be a good time to explain a little of what it's all about.
I am the project in progress, as I am still trying to achieve my goals and live life to the fullest. On this blog, I will show my progress by sharing projects I have worked on. Since I am a writer, there will be many articles posted here. But there will also be some other various projects, like trips, videos, pictures, causes to support and more. It's like getting a magazine through a blog!

As I mentioned, sometimes there will be videos. I recently entered Bookbyte's "Textbook Way to Save" contest by submitting the below video. If you like it, please vote for it! I hope it gives you some ideas on ways that you can save on books.

God Can Do the Impossible

Do YOU believe that God can do the impossible? Be honest with yourself- it's okay if you are unsure right now. Think of something that you think may be too big for God to handle, write it down, and then pray about it. Sooner or later, you'll be surprised at how much our God can really do!

Can you think of a miracle that you witnessed in your lifetime? How about the miracle of salvation. Saving a lost soul is just one of the infinite amount of impossible things that God can do. Want to read about it? Visit my article here. You'll have to click on the picture of the newspaper and leaf through a few pages before you get there, but please enjoy all of the other articles from the latest issue of The Christian Journal! If you like this publication, PLEASE consider getting a subscription for you or your family. The Christian Journal is in financial need right now, so purchasing a subscription could really help them to stay afloat! Since we believe that our Father can do the impossible, we can all take part and show The Christian Journal that God can do the impossible by taking care of their money troubles!

On the Road in Peru

Orphanages are a cause very near and dear to my heart. Just last month, I spent a week in Mexico helping out at an orphanage for the handicapped. But my first real experience at an orphanage happened in a little Peruvian town. Posada de Amor is an amazing orphanage that raises strong, godly children, even with a lack of resources. I invite you to relax, clear your mind, and imagine a dusty South American road as you read this:

"On the Road in Peru"
Left on the road to travel alone.
No food to eat.
No place to sleep.
No one to care for them.
Too young and too weak to survive alone.

10 Community Service Ideas

It's hard to believe that Christmas is less than eight weeks away, but it's coming faster than you think! Year-end donations are nice, but financial Christmas gifts aren't the only way to help charities you love and make a difference in this world. The Lord is calling all of us to serve in some way or another. After getting ten ideas of service projects YOU can do, perhaps you'll find a way to serve this season!

"10 Community Service Ideas"
Performing community service is about as fun as having a root canal while taking a final exam in calculus, right? Wrong!

Try some of these projects, and you’ll see how fun volunteering can be.
