Your Life Still Counts Online Bible Study


Starting March 16, Tracie Miles will begin the YLSC Online Bible study.  She and hundreds, perhaps thousands of  women will be reading the book, seeing what God has to say, and encouraging one another.  If you’ve ever thought that your life didn’t count, you should pick up this book.  It will encourage you.  If you want even more encouragement I invite you to join the Bible Study.

If you’ve read my 31 Days series, you’ll know that I have a great deal of difficulty with regular reading these days, but I’m going to try with this book.  Not only because my own story is in it, but because I believe that God has more to say to me through the stories of the other women in this book.

When we become overwhelmed by the world and what society is constantly pushing, it might be time to take a step back and quiet ourselves before God, and listen to what he is saying.

So I will bring my kindle reader (whose font size I can adjust!), my open heart, and Bible to this study*.  I invite you to do the same!

Wear Love


The beginning of the year has been difficult for me in the past few years.  This year I’m in that difficult place again.  January 27 2002 was the last time I saw my mother smile.  She died on the 9th of February. I often wonder what life would be like if she were alive, at the same time, I know if I hadn’t witnessed how my mother lived when things were most difficult, I would find it hard to  live my life. In one of the devotionals I’m studying this year, I came across today’s scripture, and it was like a hug from Paul. It’s such a good reminders and great advice – I have a lot left to learn (quick to forgive an offense), but I’m grateful to be alive to learn it.  Wear love is something I can hear my mom say. I don’t think I wear love all the time.  I don’t have much time around others, but I can wear love for my family.  I can wear love for myself.  It can become so common place that is it not something I have to put on.  It will be a permanent part of me.  I can show others the love Jesus has shown me.  Can’t I?
