Here are my thoughts on this Study Bible...... I have been a Christian for over half of my life & I will be honest...Studying the Bible is not always easy. So I try to find new intriguing ways to engage my desire to know the Word better, with different study Bibles. Each has a unique way of approaching the text, which helps stir up my longing to learn!  The "Know the Word Study Bible" is chocked full of knowledge. I'm not one to normally read KJV & you may not be either. So don't let that sway you from this particular version. The study guide is Book by Book, Verse by Verse & Topic by Topic. It also has a concordance & full color maps, as well as the words of Jesus are in red letter. I enjoy seeing His words stand out on the page. So that is a plus for me!

Not only did I receive this Bible complimentary for my honest review from Litfuse....They are also having a giveaway! YES!!!!! A GIVEAWAY!!!!! Click the links above to enter!

Week 2 of @illustratedfaith #wordnerd had us reading probably one of my most favorite stories in the Bible, with my absolute favorite woman in the Word...Rahab! I have always been fascinated by her. When I think of her I always want to know more. I want all of the details of her life before we hear of her & her life after. She is a true heroine with great courage! She is one of the first people that I want to meet in Heaven. Her life has such meaning. She is in the genealogy of Jesus! Imagine that! A prostitute, who was written off...would go on & help usher in the Savior of our world! Because of Rahab I have always looked at “ladies of the night” differently than most. I want to know their stories. How did they get there? Not all are there by choice. Actually most are not. They are loved by the Lord just like I am. They have a hope & a future too!

From the sermon “Doubting God’s Power”, Pastor Jay said “Faith is a decision.” I loved that! It’s sooooo true! 

Romans 10:9
I was talking to Mom about how I personally can’t relate to a parent who has a child that is unique, not accepted & treated differently, since I am not a parent.
Mom says “Oh, I know exactly how that feels to have a child that is unique, not accepted & treated differently.” And she bursts into laughter!
Geez....Thanks Mom. πŸ˜–πŸ€¦πŸ»‍♀️

Ministry Appreciation Month

Return the Blessing

It's October & do you know what that means? Time for decorating for Fall? Anything related to pumpkins? Costume parties? Making s'mores around the campfire? All of those, plus it is "Ministry Appreciation Month." So what exactly does that mean? Let me tell ya! In 1992, it was established as a month of encouragement for those in ministry. A time for letting them know just how much they mean to us. This isn't time to just do something nice for the lead pastor. It can also be for the door greeter that always has a smile when you enter the church. The small group leader who opens their home for your gatherings. Someone on the worship team, that inspires you to worship more. Even the soundman who makes the services sound great!
If you attend a church like the one that I do, there are many, many people working weekly to make the church & it's services run smoothly. Things that take place & people that you may never know that are going on behind the scenes. They may not be in paid-full time ministry, but they are in ministry none the less. So let's take this month & let them know just how much they are appreciated. It doesn't have to be a grand gesture, just something from the heart. Pray & let the Lord direct you to someone that needs to know that they are appreciated! There are some great gifts from Dayspring that you can choose from!

First...there are FREE & shareable cards, like this one.... 

There are 16 incredible cards to choose from!

There are tons of ideas over on the DaySpring website! Be sure to hop on over there to see all of the goodies!

And remember to #returntheblessing

Lady Liberty & I are workin’ hard, y’all! πŸ˜‚

When you have a long commute or are stuck in traffic. Be thankful. Be thankful that you have a car to drive to a job & back to a home. When things don’t work out the way YOU want, be thankful. It may just be protection. When you have piles of laundry to get done. Be grateful that you have lots of clothes to wash & dry in working machines in your house. Your kids are getting on your nerves? Thank the Lord you have kids to get on your nerves. I could list so many things here...
The Bible says ...
“whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
It doesn’t say...whatever is annoying you, frustrating you, causing you an inconvenience, not going your, complain & dwell on these things.
Take it from me....when you decide to change the way you see life. Stress doesn’t impact the way you live. πŸ˜‰πŸ’—πŸ˜Š
