SUMMER NEWS UPDATE
I hope you're having a wonderful summer so far. There's something so great about shorts & T-shirts, longer days, warmer weather, and family picnics....be sure to take time and enjoy your fair share of the fun!
As for me, I'm spending the summer working on my new book. My deadline is August 1 and it's coming along very well, but except for a few breaks with my hubby, I'm pretty much nose-to-the-grindstone these days.
That's why I'm not sending you a teaching this month, but I couldn't resist keeping in touch with you, and letting you know what's coming up. I thought I'd give you a little bit of a preview!
Has life thrown you a curve? Have things happened that you didn’t expect? I think it’s happened to all of us. I know it’s happened to me!
After my husband died at age 37 (which was definitely a curve!) and I pastored our church in Boise for about four years, the Lord began to deal with me about moving back to Tulsa, Oklahoma.
That is not what I expected, and I didn’t want to go!
I didn’t want to leave the Northwest again for the flat, hot Midwest. I didn’t want to move away from my natural family and my wonderful church family...
JULY 2014 - Since moving to Minnesota in mid-May, I've been enjoying the cooler temps and getting acquainted with my new surroundings!
Bob and I have taken a couple day trips, and here we are in Alma, Wisconsin, high on a mountain with a breathtaking view of the Mississippi. We are loving married life!
JUNE 2014 - On May 16, Rhema graduated it's 40th class -- Bob was able to attend and march in with me and the other instructors and spouses. It was a glorious night, sending those grads out into the harvest! Then the following Monday, Bob and I loaded up the truck and moved to Minnesota! I'm loving my new home, and the weather has been amazing (yes, I know about the winters, everyone asks me that! lol). Besides unpacking and getting settled, I'm writing a new book this summer. It's due out in January through Charisma House; stay tuned for details....
We just finished your DVD series "Parenting with Purpose" and it has changed our lives! My husband and I are implementing and learning new things every day! I’m truly enjoying my children for the first time in a really long time -- a lot of the pressure about being a "perfect parent" has been lifted because no such thing exists. I find comfort in knowing that all the answers I need to help me be a better parent are in God’s word! Thank you for sharing this knowledge with us!
