God’s Best for 2019

January 1, 2019

New year, new plans, new memories to be made. New opportunities, new prayer requests, new testimonies. From my heart to yours, wishing you God’s Best for 2019.

Kicking off 2019 on the right foot, let’s pray:

Dear Father, I praise you for this New Year. I pray that I will lean on you more fully and seek your face for wisdom every morning. Keep me from sin and keep my focus on you. May I never forget the price you paid for me, so I will feel loved. Help me reach out to others who are hurting. In Jesus Name, Amen.

May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you, but most of all, my team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father.

October… We’re So Glad You’ve Arrived

October 2, 2018

SUPER excited to share this month’s Calendar Challenge. Why?

The 31st is Reformation Day, and the day the church remembered the saints from the past, hence All Saints Day… So, I decided to create a calendar challenge based on Hebrews; calling us to remember and imitate faith of those who came before us.

Let’s Welcome September

September 1, 2018

Very excited to share this month’s Calendar Challenge. But, before we get there, let’s pray…
Dear Father, as the weather cools, remind me of your grace and unfailing love. Day to day life distracts me so keep me close by your side, reading Your Word, and praying for wisdom. Help me enjoy every moment and live in the joy of your presence. Thank you for my salvation.

In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Working-Mom: Michelle Medlock Adams Can Help You Succeed

August 3, 2018
Working-mom

A working-Mom often feels overloaded. Even though I didn’t work while my children were little, I understand how overwhelmed you can feel. I had five, and my youngest was severely disabled. Since I homeschooled all of them,  I felt like I had a full-time job.

However, I think we have evidence the lady described in Proverbs 31 was a working mom:

Proverbs 31:16 She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.

 Proverbs 31:24 She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant.

She knows her merchandise is good

As far as her home:  Proverbs 31:27 She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

It also said her children rise up and praise her, which convinces me this Proverbs icon had kids who were grown, but she is busy woman with a lot to offer.

At this point, my kids could accuse me of things, and I might not recall every incident because. Those years are a blur. LOL!

Today Michelle Medlock Adams is my guest. She worked as a journalist throughout her mothering career. On August 7, 2018, she has a new book  coming out for the working mom called Fabulous and Focused.

Michelle is going to share how she kept going when her girls were babies, and some of the pitfalls of the journey. After being a working mom for years, she has great encouragement and tips to make you succeed.

Go to her website for lots more free stuff.

The Sunny August Days

July 31, 2018

Oh, Father, as we approach this busy month, keep our hearts from drifting. Help us juggle chores with your wisdom and let the warm weather remind us of your steadfast love. Fill our minds with eternal purpose to love you more each day and share that love with our husband, children, and friends. May we overflow with your goodness and kindness to anyone nearby.

In the precious name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
