Query. We believe the Bible is the word of God ... as far as it is translated correctly. I enjoy reading the Bible very much and feel inspired when I read the stories. Lately, I have been trying to study more deeply, picking apart sentences and phrases, looking up definitions, etc. When I try to do that, however, I wonder, with possible mistranslations, how much can I focus on how a word fits into a phrase or what a word may have originally meant? If that word is mistranslated, is it all for naught?
I would appreciate anyone's stories, tips, or testimonies on how I can deeply study the Bible without fear. Thanks!

Just a little formulating to do this morning to try and predict Sarah's BG levels.
With a 1:12 Carb/Insulin Ratio
50 (1 unit drops bg by 50mg) divided by 12(ratio) = raise bg by 4 mg per carb
so we conclude 1 carb raises bg by 4 mg or points
With a 1:10 Carb/Insulin Ratio
50 divided by 10= raise bg by 5 mg per carb
so we conclude 1 carb raises bg by 5 mg or points
Sarah had 14 carbs for breakfast
She was on a 1:10 ratio
50 divided by 10 = 5 mg per carb 14x5= raise blood by 70 mg
Morning BS was 149 149+70= raises her bg to 219 without any insulin
She took 1.5 units of insulin which will drop her 75mg in four hours which should put her at
2.5 hours after her breakfast bg was 157.
219-157= bg dropped 62 mg in 2.5 hours. Still having (.5 of her insulin left) it will drop her another 25mg in the next two hours.
157-25= 132 4 hours after breakfast
She had 5 carb snack at 2 hour check.
5x4= 20 uncovered carbs
132+20 = Now bg will be 152 four hours after breakfast. ****In theory
Do you think that the formula actually worked? No
Four hours after her morning insulin and breakfast, she was 105.
No amount of formulating can predict what a person's bg will do.

I just wanted to write a quick thank you to my brother's and sister's and parent's. Moving has been fun, and interesting, and hard, and good. But an emotional roller coaster, especially for my kids. I want to send a big shout out to all of you for your words of support and kind actions of love, and christ like example. Especially when dealing with my kids. Brooke has commented that several of the aunts and uncles are following her on instagram, thanks for keeping her honest, and thanks for liking her pics. Thanks to each of you for taking the time to call and check up on our family, and for smiling at things as we change the house around (thanks for not freaking out!). Thanks for your donations of archers, your skyping, your texts, to mom and dad for running errands with me, and basically for just being you. I love all of you, I MISS all of you. But more then anything, I am so thankful that I am have the privilege of calling you my family.

Last weekend we had a storm to beat all storms. This is hail, which came down so fast and so hard and so long that it plugged up my gutters. It all flooded the streets and filled up the big sunken in drainage areas in the neighborhoods. It looked like it had snowed.

Hi Bean family! I can't believe two weeks have almost gone by since the family reunion. We had so much fun, and we hope you did, too! Here are the EDITED versions of the family pictures. I tried my best to pick pictures that flattered everyone. As for editing, if you don't like how your family's picture looks, let me know! You won't offend me at all! Everybody has different tastes, and I would love to edit your family to your liking. We love you and miss you all! -Hayley
