a bath bridal shower . . .

Stephanie and me

This past Saturday friends in CA put on a "bath and bridal" shower for me. It was so sweet. Stephanie Niednagel hosted it at her home and had a brunch. She is the wife of the couple I stayed with when I flew to CA last Labor Day to meet Ben and when I first moved to CA in Dec/Jan. She has been a blessing in my life and transition to CA.

There were about 10 women that came. These were friends from all areas and all walks of life. It was a super special time. A friend from Orange County came up that I know from CIU. We both lived in SC two years ago and met at seminary. She transferred to Biola and now I am here too. SMALL WORLD. Ashley Meringer was there, we grew up knowing each other from WBC in AK. Other women from Bible study, seminary wives and work came. It was a special time of fellowship.

The theme was a shower of bath gifts for our bathroom. We got a lot of towels and bathroom stuff off our registery.

Glad you had such a great time. I think it's awesome how God places different people in our lives for when we need them. I'm glad you already have such a great network of people down there.
