Good morning, Dear ones, I could not wait to give you GOD’s simple answer: “Go where you are fed.” And for me Dear ones? That has been Mama Joyce for years now. And then @mizbehavingmama introduced me to Sister Beth (Moore) who GOD is using hot and heavy to get down to the deepest parts of me ( more on that later). And of course @mizbehavingmama also introduced me to Sweet and Precious Sister Ann (Voskamp) who, if you are in need of a soft place to land and encouragement; I highly recommend searching out Sister Ann. All of the precious women are very dear to my heart and GOD has used them in mighty ways in my life. I can not recommend them enough. Also @lisajobaker and @christiepurifoy are now new friends to me also introduced to me by @mizbehavingmama. The new work that I never saw coming, the ground they are plowing for HIM in the secret garden of my heart! Then of course there are very practical teachings of @themoneysavingmom and @lifeingrace who come alongside of you and encourage you and lift you up! What do all of this mighty women of PAPA’S have in common? Not one will EVER shame you. Not one will EVER tell you, you are not enough. In fact quite the opposite is true. They encourage, lift up, come alongside, and NOT one will ever pretend they have it more together than you. NOT one will push you down in order for them to be raised up. I praise and thank GOD for raising up mighty women, who HE uses to speak to a woman’s heart and all of her broken and bruised places! So what will I change? I will not go to the radio this morning. I will however, put that teaching CD of Mama Joyce back in the player. And I will invest in more from the other teachers I have come to love so much! You are already blessed, dear one. My challenge ? Live like it ;) I love you all! GOD does love you more though! Have a fantastic day, my loves! #joycemeyer #bethmoore #lpm #annvoskamp #lisajobaker #christinepurifoy #lifeingrace #moneysavingmom #mightywomenofgod #gowhereyouarefed #godanswersprayers

Ordinary days can feel insignificant, even disappointing.

Trying to keep moving, to stay awake because the night was short and even teenagers can keep you up late.

Work. Running errands. Cleaning the kitchen. Cooking chili.

You may wonder if you’re making an impact at all, anywhere in your life, and if indeed your story matters.

All of our stories matter!

Enduring when life is mundane or crumbling matters.

Faithfully being there doing “all the ordinary things” each day matters.

Talking with your kids long enough, at inopportune times, hear their heart matters.

Being steadfast when others come and go matters.

Keeping an open heart even when it’s been hurt, that believes the best in others and calls out their greatness, matters.

The fruit may not be seen yet, but it will be seen eventually and it will be significant.

If no one has told you that you are a great friend, a great young woman, a great mom, a great wife, a great encourager, or a great young man, a great dad or a great mentor - here me: you are!

Be encouraged! Being faithful in a lot of what feels like “ordinary ways” is not ordinary at all. Your story is significant!

What you’re looking at is my winning #gumbo seasoning. It’s fall in south Louisiana. We are kicking off a new Bible Study (We Saved You a Seat) and if seems like the best time to whip up a chicken and sausage gumbo. Whole process in the stories all day long! .

Let me tell you about meeting Lisa-Jo Baker in the White Barn. It was like seeing a good friend for the first time in a long while. She grabbed my hands, took me warmly into her arms and smiled. Seeing my worn, tabbed, highlighted, note filled, tear stained copy of her book she requested to have her picture taken with it. I cannot thank her enough for writing this book. It came to me in one of the worst seasons I've ever faced. A time when I felt so alone, hurt, rejected, isolated, confused, and desperate for answers. This book is what literally pulled me back up out of one of the darkest places I've ever been. Meeting her now a year later, having gone back to her words so many times, I have such gratitude to her for writing what I know was not an easy book to write. I know I said it at least five times when we met, but thank you so much Lisa-Jo. #lisajobaker #neverunfriended #nestfest2018 #thenester #thecozyminimalist #incourage #womensupportwomen #booksthatchangeyourlife

#christiepurifoy #lisajobaker #outoftheordinarypodcast - This is my most recent business card - no mention of degrees, life experience, just me - who I am at this stage of my life. Each of these descriptors actually includes most of who I have always been. It doesn’t say “daughter,” “sister,” “wife,” “mother,” “grandmother,” “pastor,” “denominational leader,” “neighbor,” “friend, “ “teacher” - all of which are true and part of my story. But ALL of these come under that single, powerful, TRUE title: beloved child of God, little sister to Jesus, dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. Thank you for this week’s powerful reminder of that life-changing truth.

Starving! I hear it everyday. Every. Day. I've heard it from SO many of you beautiful souls since September. Life is not supposed to be like this. We are supposed to touch one another, sit near one another, hold on to one another through the hard times, high five one another in the best times, & dance side by side in the joyful times....

In my one and only photography class in college (to fill an elective spot with something fun!), I heard more than once, “true artistry is creating something extraordinary from something quite ordinary." . . .
I had to smile as I listened to Christie Purifoy and Mary Jo Baker say basically the same thing in their “Out of the Ordinary” podcast this week. How sweet to realize that little moments which could easily be overlooked, and may even grow tiresome on some levels, can become treasured glimpses of extraordinary in our very routine, ordinary days. They asked us, as their listeners, to ponder where unexpected EXTRAORDINARY might be found in our own day to day? [what a gift to see His hand creating amazing GRACE out of the ordinary in their lives... and begin to recognize His touch in our own!] . . .
When I pause to think about it, two things come to mind ... one from my own childhood home and one small but lingering thing my kids have kept alive, even though they are now big kids starting to contemplate life decisions like cars and colleges and part-time jobs! . . .
My little piece of extraordinary gives away where I was raised ... Pennsylvania! As far back as I can remember, my mom has placed little electric candles in each of the windows of our home. They are set on timers to come on at dusk and stay on until we are all deeply asleep, sometime after midnight. . . .
I hold treasured memories of climbing into bed each night, hearing the house settle to a lovely quiet, seeing and feeling the soft glow of those little candles, cast across our darkened rooms. Even now, when I travel home for a visit, I fight sleep as long as possible, soaking in that glow. The word that comes to mind is “surrounded." In that safe and happy place, loved and provided for by those who know and love me best.
