I Lost My Confidence

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry that last week’s church notes are late–and I hate to tell you, but this week’s will probably be late too because I’ve got a crazy couple of weeks lined up.  I’ll aim to have them posted by the end of next week.

Anyway, onto last week’s notes!

Guest Post: Lily from The Sassy Baker

Today’s guest is my sister Lily–who I’m fairly sure is the only sister of mine who hasn’t made an appearance on my blog yet.  You can check out what my other sisters had to say here and here.

Fawkes

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes is another book I recently received from the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild.  My friend was over when I got it in the mail and he was interested in it, so I gave it to him to read, and if he finishes it sometime soon I’ll add his thoughts into this post.  Meanwhile, here’s what the description of the book on Amazon says:

Sorry…Traveling Again

Hey guys, this week’s sermon notes are going to be late again because I was driving while listening to the message this week and obviously couldn’t take notes and drive. 🙂 I’ll try to listen to it again and take and upload notes by the end of the week, but the next couple of weeks are so busy so no promises.

Be sure to be on the lookout for some upcoming travel posts!

Life Verses: Part Six: Psalm 37:4

I’m back again with another verse that has been impactful to me.  In this series, I’ve been taking you through several verses that helped me get through various seasons of my life and have a special place in my heart.  I hope that as I share these verses with you and what they meant to me that you’ll find they apply to your life also and that you’ll find some encouragement in these posts! Now, let’s get on to this installment’s verse.

Among the Dead

My family, friends, and I went to the Yellow Daisy festival this weekend at Stone Mountain Park, and then did a sunset hike up the mountain afterwords.  Along the way, we found some of the yellow daisies for which the festival was named.

This one in particular captured my attention and I took a picture of it—because there was just one flourishing among the dead. 

It reminded me of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37:

Guest Post: Corrie Haynes

I’m so excited to introduce my new friend Corrie to you all! She’s a DJ on my favorite radio station, and I’ve listened to her for several years.  Last year, I would listen to her speak in the afternoons as I came home from cosmetology school, and it encouraged me to keep going.  She was also a cosmetology student who wanted to keep her faith first in the life of glitter, glam, and make-your-own-way.  A couple months ago, she shared on the radio that she wished for a friend who understood what she was going through, and I found her on social media and reached out to her.  After chatting for a couple weeks, we met up in person and really enjoyed each other’s company (yes, if you’re studying the pictures, it was at a Waffle House).  I asked her to guest blog today so that I could share her with you all; she radiates the joy of the Lord and wisdom, and is really a treasure.
