Coming Soon…A Virtual Marriage Retreat & Messy Beautiful Love

Embrace[3]

I am so excited to share with you the “Embrace Your Marriage” Virtual Marriage Retreat! I am partnering up with some of my favorite marriage bloggers every Monday in the month of September, to focus on our marriages! Each week we will include a challenge and links to the other writers so you can virtually visit us all! While we all hold the same Biblical principles, we each have our own unique perspective and life experiences. We pray this will bless you! Join me back here this Monday, September 1st as we begin!

And while we are on the topic of marriage – I must share a marriage book that is about to be released. Messy Beautiful Love Cover

(to view the book trailer – click here)

I had the honor of writing the forward to Messy Beautiful Love: Hope and Redemption for Real-Life Marriages* by Darlene Schacht (aka the Time Warp Wife). This November, I plan to host a 4 week book club here at Women Living Well using this book. So if you think you want to join this book club – now might be a  great time to purchase it because look at these freebies Darlene is offering!!!!

Do Not Be Discouraged When You Feel Judged

I am still on my blogging break but I am in Dallas, Texas this morning at a Women in Ministry Summit with Kay Arthur (author of over 100 Bible Studies!) and Logos Bible Software.

I had the opportunity to sit next to Kay Arthur and ask her many questions during breakfast yesterday.

My mother has led her Precept Bible Studies for over 35 years. I am a product of Kay discipling my mother and my mother discipling me. So this was truly a joy to meet Kay, at the age of 80, in real life.

I was also trained on the amazing Logos Bible Software that includes so many Bible study tools and helps including commentaries, Bible dictionaries, lexicons and concordances all quickly at the touch of a fingertip in one place.  It’s amazing!

There were 50 of us like-minded women in ministry there including:

Janelle – Comfy In the Kitchen, Darlene – Time Warp Wife, and Jennifer – the Unveiled Wife

Renee Swope of Proverbs 31 Ministries

And others like Liz Curtis Higgs, Elisa Morgan – CEO of MOPS, Sally Clarkson, Chrystal Hurst, Rachael Myers & Amanda Smith of She Reads Truth, Pam Ferrell who I really enjoyed – she’s the author of Men are Like Waffles, Women are Like Spaghetti and 40 more books, Margaret Feinberg, Lisa Harper, Patsy Clairmont, Susie Larson,  Cindy Bultema, Lore Ferguson, Jessica Thompson, Elyse Fitzpatrick and many more I’m forgetting. (I’m a little delirious from lack of sleep. Lol!)

So I am filled up, inspired and so very blessed and can’t wait to get back home to my family!

But I will remain on a blogging break a wee bit longer.

Until then, visit me today over at the Better Mom where we are discussing when you feel judged by other Christians.
