The printed page transcends all the busyness we have been consumed by in the past. Seize this moment to put down your phones, shut off social media for an hour, hold a good book in your hand, run your fingers over the pages, hug it close to your chest, and then read… read the words that will usher in hope, joy, love, laughter, and encouragement. Read truth!
Being a Godly Mother is getting up every day, desperate for God’s love and forgiveness in my life. It is about being “transformed” by the daily renewal of my mind, my thoughts, and my actions through spending time with Him. It is about knowing Him and His character. It is about doing the Motherhood thing for Him and only for Him.
“Fear…It connotes a lifetime of struggle for almost everyone.” Lisa Stillwell, author of Faith over Fear 100 Days Devotional Journal, states. “No.”
We started 2019 off with a God-sized dream of donating 10,000 Bibles to the country of Rwanda through Compassion International. Our friends at Compassion have been an integral part of helping the communities in Rwanda rebuild and find reconciliation after the genocide 25 years ago. We were honored to partner with them and sponsor this Rwanda Bible project this yearó10,000 Bibles is a big undertaking, but we knew confidently that our God is bigger!
This year, we realized that we are better togetherówhen women build one another up in faith and in business, amazing things happen. Our strength is in our unity. We”re charging full speed ahead into 2020 with our hearts, eyes, and vision set on putting love over allówhat does it look like to unite behind love? Love is found in Jesus Christóand if we know Jesus, we have His love in us! Let His love overflow out of you as you gather together with friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers this month.
To this day, there are very few desserts I would choose over Grandmother’s iced sugar cookies, especially since making them with her is but a distant memory. As a mom to three precious girls, intentional time together is one of my highest priorities. Whether making sugar cookies or creating treats to take to neighbors, I desire to use our kitchen as place to connect, create, and cultivate a lifelong desire to share love (and sprinkles!)
One of the most well-known and beautiful verses begins with such a sweet simple calling…Be Still. Just the sound of those words brings peace to my soul. Psalm 46:10 ìBe Still and Know I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.î Friend, let’s go deeper beyond the message ìBe Stillî in search of the nuggets of gold that await us in this beautiful scripture.
We have had an amazing relationship with Compassion International for years. When you make a donation, no matter how small, you make a huge impact in the lives of the children and their families, specifically in Rwanda this year where Mary & Martha have committed to providing TEN THOUSAND BIBLES! When a child receives a Bible, it not only impacts that child but often their entire family. Ten thousand Bibles can reach fifty thousand people for Jesus!
