Hot off the press...

I just finished putting together a 40 day devotional for our church to use beginning this Wednesday. I have to tell you, I really enjoyed it. I have missed putting the paper together so this was fun.

When one of our elders approached me about this project I couldn't wait to get started. We talked to numerous individuals who agreed to write for the booklet. I was so excited to open my emails each day to see what I might find. Having only been told to write about Jesus' suffering, death or resurrection, I wondered if there would be many devotionals that would overlap. Surprisingly, there weren't any... all of the the thoughts, while centered on the same subject, were vastly different.

I can't wait to see what God does through this devotional... so many people on the same page each day... how amazing it will be to see where this will lead us as a congregation!!!

Hey you stole my Blog background! Great minds think alike :-)

I started a new devotional blog- for us old moms with grown kids and youngins. I though of you while getting it together(not saying you're old...). I would really like others to post there in the future. Of course I don't know if anyone will actually look at it, let alone read it, but there is a link on my family blog.

I just feel like we older moms with older and younger kids have somewhat unique spiritual needs. I haven't found anything out there that speak to those needs and I've been seeking God about that. Anyway, I did post a couple of my past devotional journal entries if you're interested...I'd also like to ask others to get involved who have a similiar family make-up and enjoy blogging. I just want to encourage other moms/wives like us in the Lord!

Who knows, maybe it can lead to putting together another devotional for you since you have so much experience :-)
