Is this thing on?

Standard

For my awesome friends and subscribers, you’ve seen this post before, but it fit perfectly with this week’s Greater Blog Hop, so it’s being reused. One of this week’s topics is:

Elisha had it easy. He knew God had called him to leave the dull behind when the great prophet Elijah showed up at his plow. What about you? Share a time when God spoke clearly into your life. Big or small, how did you discern His calling in your life?

Of course, before we jump in, here is the winner of a copy of Unglued by Lysa TerKeurst: Noelle who posted on November 29, 2012 at 11:50 am! Congrats sister!

Persevere and Giveaway

Standard

Today Melissa is attending the funeral of her father’s wife who passed away last week. I think it would be a beautiful gift if we left her an encouraging note or prayer on her blog today.

Welcome back my ladies from Melissa Taylor’s Online Bible Studies! This is our last day for Week Six, but I won’t keep you long. It’s Friday, which means Glynnis Whitwer, author of I Used to Be So Organized {the book we are studying} has a little encouragement and “home” work for us. Today I have a few tidbits from our Conference Call from Monday night with Melissa Taylor, Angie Combs, and myself.

First, are you a winner??

If you entered in Sharon Sloan’s giveaway of three SIGNED copies of Lysa Terkeurst’s book Unglued which will be the next book in our study line up, then pop over to her blog to see if you won!

The next study will begin September 23rd, which sounds like a long way off, but be sure to order your book as soon as possible. You can also sign-up for the study on Melissa’s blog, it’s up and ready to go!

Taming Technology

Standard

For those who don’t know me very well, I LOVE technology…probably a little too much. I love how it can help me get organized; remind me of birthdays, anniversaries, and other important appointments. Sometimes…technology can get the better of me if I’m not careful. Today I have divided our lesson into two parts and you can read the one which applies to you the best {you can read them both too if you’d like, I won’t mind}. The two parts are:

I LOVE TECHNOLOGY! {OOO, SOMETHING NEW AND SHINY!}
