I’m a little late sharing a cup with all of you today! I’ll brew a fresh pot so stay awhile and let’s enjoy our visit!
It’s been a busy week! First week of 2 new classes online. I’m seriously digging into the counseling course and LOVE every minute of it. The match course – well, I’ve barely stuck my toe in the water, but I’m gearing up for it. Math is NOT my forté.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m the newly appointed editor of our women’s ministry newsletter at church, and this was the week to get all of the articles together and sent to the printer. We’ll be getting a proof and then moving on into printing. The newsletter was a regular feature of the women’s ministry for some time, but the previous editor had to step down for health reasons. It’s been about 18 months since they’ve had one, and I’m excited (and nervous) to get it going. I’ll link to the PDF file at the website when it’s ready.
I remembered through this entire experience how much I LOVE to write, and how much I love to read what other women have to write. I’m the 7th person on the ministry team, and it is remarkable how clearly God placed each woman on the team and how their different personalities, temperaments and gifts work together. I kinda feel like the “honorary” member – not because any of them make me feel that way, oh no – they welcomed me with open arms. I just don’t have any other ongoing ministry like teaching Sunday School or leading a Bible study right now. I am not comparing myself in that “I’m not good enough” but God is still speaking to me about building up the church women’s website and HOPEFULLY blog, soon. So I’m waiting.
And I’ll be joining a new Bible Study (along with M.O.P.S. in the fall!) in September, where we will be working through the book, “Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free” by Nancy Leigh Demoss. I imagine it’ll be something along the lines of Jennifer Rothschild’s book, “Me, Myself, and Lies – A Thought Closet Makeover” which is still difficult for me to work through. It really hits some nerves, but I’m picking it up and working through it when I can.
Oh, and I have to HIGHLY recommend a devotional that I’m treating myself to once a week: The Coffee Mom’s Devotional. Oh. My. Word. Not only is it perfectly written for coffee loving moms – it has given me so much grace, encouragement, and exhortation!
I’m taking one chapter once a week and digging in. GOOD stuff. I highly recommend it. Buy it for a friend. Put it on your wish list. It’s a great little book and really useful. I have a pretty journal that I am using to record my answers to her suggested questions and may pass along my copy to someone else…
So are you in the middle of any Bible Studies or great devotional books? I’d love to hear what else I should add to my wish list (LOL)
It’s been a busy week, but I’m grateful for the chance to sit down and sip a cup of fresh brewed coffee with the Company Girls! Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. – Hey there – I was going to post Saturday, but decided to make it a FAMILY WEEKEND. I’ll return Monday with more – and continuing my conversation with Danielle, too! Got some GREAT stuff coming up! Check back on Monday, or subscribe so you don’t miss a post!
