BeckyAvella.com Coming Soon!

It's time for my little corner of Cyberspace to have a makeover.

In August, I'll be launching a new website at www.BeckyAvella.com

I'm excited to have a central location for my writing and speaking ministry and Everyday Becky's blog will still be here, just with a hip new cyber "outfit". I hope you'll like it. : )

I don't have an official launch date yet, but I wanted to give you a heads up so you can be looking for the celebration and giveaways coming soon.

Think of my blog right now as my "before" picture before the makeover reveal.

Vacation Flashback: Beautiful Mt. Rainier

After a super fun family reunion, our next stop was Ohanapecosh Campground in Mt. Rainier National Park to break in our new (to us) tent trailer:

Isn't Ohanapecosh a great name? Say that five times fast:

Ohanapecosh Ohanapecosh Ohanapecosh Ohanapecosh Ohanapecosh

We stayed for five days.
(This explains the absence of adults in these pictures. We were all camera shy after a week without showers. )

It was five days of hiking, playing games, eating s'mores, hanging out by the campfire, and visiting Grandma and Grandpa in their new camper for early morning cups of hot chocolate:

Hey, Aunt Becky!! I saw you eyeballing my hot chocolate!

The big kids went every morning to the Ranger Station for the kids' program and were proudly sporting "Junior Ranger" badges all week.

The following pictures were taken standing in our campsite. We definitely had the best site there. Isn't it beautiful?

Thank you, Lord, for the beauty we saw and the magical childhood memories made.

Nana's Midas Touch

I've always hoped that someday I could grow up and have even a little of my grandmother's gift for making her home a place of beauty. Even as a little girl I was aware of how nice Nana's home was and loved being there.

During the first weekend of our vacation we stayed at Nana's house and although my pictures will never be able to capture exactly how her home feels to me, nor will I be able to give a complete picture of how pretty it all is, I wanted to share with all of you a glimpse of one of my favorite places to be:

My Book is Ready to Order! : )

I'm home from vacation-

Well rested.


And with good news to share!

My book is ready to order~

So many of you have been following my blog for a long time and have prayed for me and this book. I can't thank you enough!

Please keep praying.

Please pray it will touch hearts and point many people to hope and healing.

Please pray for me. I'm feeling insecure and nervous, but also excited to see what God has planned.

I love you all so much!

I'm Leaving in a Tundra....

Don't know when I'll be back again (because vacation just sounds so good, I might never return)

I'm off to family, camping, relaxation, and hopefully at least one day to sleep in.

I'm going to take a blogging break, too, so my family will get my full attention.

I'll see you July 19th!!!

Hope you are having a Popsicle eating, sprinkler running through, s'more eating kind of summer.

See you soon!
