The WLW Forum & a Link-Up for the Book Club

WLW Forum a place to connect

 

It’s finally time for me to share this little idea I’ve been working on.  I know this will not appeal to everyone…but I hope it will be a blessing to some.

It’s the Women Living Well Forum – a place to connect!

When I was pregnant with my son (over 10 years ago), I found the “BabyCenter” forums.  I LOVED connecting with other women who were pregnant at the same time and sharing our pregnancy experiences with each other.  Then we had our babies and for about 2 years, I lurked and found a lot of great wisdom and insight there – and a lot of useless stuff too. Lol! But during that season of my life, the forums there really blessed me because I had real women to connect with.

This forum is so we can connect with other like-minded women and discuss the things close to our heart.  If you have questions or thoughts you want to share – share them.  If you have answers and wisdom to share – share it!

I will not be able to oversee every single thread or answer every question there because of time constraints.  But I will hop on from time to time and chat.

I am also hoping that this will be a place where we can discuss the topics of the book club further than just in the comment section of my posts!

So >>click here<< and join the discussions!  You can also find your way to the forums by using the top menu bar – you should see the link on the top right. :)

 

Bloggers – please note that the Wednesday link-up has changed for the next 8 weeks:

This link-up is for those who are blogging their way through the Women Living Well Book Club.  

Posts not pertaining to the book club will be removed.

The complete reading schedule is >>here<<.

Write a post letting your readers know that you are joining us – and then link-up that post below.  

Every Wednesday I will provide a place for you to link-up your post from that week.

Let’s get started!

 


Giving Thanks & WLWW Monthly Link-Up Party

Over the years, many women have asked for suggestions of blogs their husband’s can read.  My personal favorite is DesiringGod.org.
But – I am happy to announce a brand new blog I am contributing at!  This website has both men and women writers and it’s called For the Family.

Christian Resource for Family

I am over there today writing about – Giving Thanks to the Generations that Came Before Us  – please come visit me there and while you are there click around and check out the other blog posts and writers!  And don’t forget to send your husband there too!
Happy Thanksgiving – from my family to yours!
I pray you have an amazing day with your family.

Walk with the King!

The Webcast Schedule & WLWW Link-Up Party!

 Women Living Well Schedule 2

 Above you will find the dates, topics and the keynote speakers
for the Thursday night webcasts.

Each Thursday night the featured speaker will speak for about 15 minutes -
then she will be joined on the couch by 3 other women.

THIS week, we have a special treat.  The schedule is as follows:

Karen Ehman will start us out with a HILARIOUS skit!

Then I will speak on the topic of Finding Rest In Your Home.

Then ALL 7 speakers will join me on the couch for a discussion.

The entire webcast will last a total of 42 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Where do we view the webcasts?

Go to WomenLivingWell.tv on the night of the webcast at 9pmCT/10EST and we’ll be there!

2. How long are the webcasts?

All of the webcasts last around 45 minutes.

3.  Do we need to sign-up for the webcasts?

No, simply go to WomenLivingWell.tv at 9pmCT/10EST and the video will be there for you to watch FREE – NO strings attached.

4. Do you have a twitter hashtag for this conference?

We are using #WomenLivingWell.

5.  Will there be a Facebook Party before the webcast?

Yes – one hour before each webcast there will be a Facebook Party on the Facebook page of the keynote speaker – so this week – come party with us at 8pmCT/9CT on my facebook page here - I will be giving away a few copies of my book!

6.  Will there be a replay for those who are not home at this time or who live in an international time zone?

This is the biggest question of all and due to a technical glitch (which I’m sure God has sovereignly directed) the livestream platform I had planned to run the conference on is not going to work out for us (which freaked me out earlier this week – but now I’m at peace ;) )…so what was going to be a definite one time event has a wee bit of flexibility now – so if you are running late – just join us later on Thursday evening and the video should still be available for a few hours longer.

Any other questions? Just ask in the comment section!

**REMINDER: Only 6 days left to receive the 10 ebook bundle as a thank you gift for purchasing ONE copy of Women Living Well and my publisher just added 15 more necklaces and DVDs for those who purchase 5 or more!!!! Buy it at Barnes and Nobles On-line or Amazon.com then simply email your receipt of purchase to womenlivingwellbook@gmail.com!

It’s WLWW Link-Up Party Time!

Today our Classical Conversations (homeschool weekly class) came to an end. Both of my children had amazing teachers, made great new friends and had an enriching educational experience. We are so grateful for this class.  This is a family photo from today.

I will write later more about our homeschooling year along with some pictures from this class but for now …

The Dig ~ Volume 2 & WLWW Link-Up Party!

Ruth and me 2

This is my friend Ruth – she is the creator of TheBetterMom.com (and in this picture she was picking me up to head to a blogging conference.)  I love this girl (who happens to be a graduate of Moody Bible Institute too – woot!).

Last July when her first volume of The Dig for Kids came out I told you all about it…This month she has released Volume 2!

Help Your Children Learn the Bible! ~www.thebettermom.comFor those of you who haven’t heard of The Dig, a typical Dig lesson consists of the following four components:

1. The Map: The Map tells you and your child where you’ll be going in each lesson. It is a short summary of the study ahead.
2. The Dig: The Dig is the main passage you will be studying. Following each passage will be several questions designed to help conversation and understanding. They are meant to be a guide. You can use them or tweak them to help you talk with your children.
3. The Treasure: The Treasure is the big idea of each lesson. In a short statement, it is what you want your child to remember from the passage you studied.
4. The Display: When an archaeologist finds a treasure, they will clean it up and put it on display for everyone to see. This is the basic idea of the Display. It is the application of the Treasure you have found!

 The author is the husband of Ruth.  Here is a little bit about him.

Patrick Schwenk grew up going to church wearing clip-on ties, uncomfortable shirts, pants that were too short, and shoes that were too tight (at least that is how he remembers feeling). He was born, raised, and then born again within a conservative evangelical home (and church) in the Midwest. Today, he still loves the church and is thankful to both serve and lead others toward Jesus. He is a father, husband, and pastor. Patrick and his wife Ruth (www.thebettermom.com) met while attending the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL. They have been married for fourteen years and currently have four children ages three to ten. They love serving in ministry, spending time together as a family, reading, drinking lots of coffee, and resting in God’s grace.

What Others Are Saying

“The Dig for kids is so imaginative and fun! Patrick Schwenk makes it easy to explain God’s word to your children through creative questions and hands on activities. This is definitely a treasure. There is nothing greater than discovering God’s truth together!”
Courtney, Women Living Well Ministries (that’s me :) )

 “I want to get my kids into the Word on a regular basis, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. The Dig gives me step-by-step guidelines on how to guide us through our time hearing from God in a simple, fun way. It lets me set aside any worry whether I’m doing it ‘right,’ and just enjoy time with my family! Sweet, short, and simple—perfect for kids!”

~Tsh Oxenreider, founder of SimpleLivingMedia.com and writer of SimpleMom.net

“I’m so excited to take my children through the The Dig! Family devotional time is very important to us and when we read the Bible together, I don’t always know what principles to pull out of the scriptures that will best relate in their lives. I’m thankful that Patrick has taken the guess work out of Bible reading time! And the best part is that no scripture is left unread. Line by line, you’ll read the bible with your children, have discussion questions, the take away of the lesson and how to apply it to daily life. Brilliant!” 

Candace Cameron Bure, Actress and NYT Best-Selling Author
