Lori shares hope for When You’re Up Against a Wall – 6 Powerful Prayer Principles.
Susan has a brief post on How to Prepare Your Kids for the World, but what I highly recommend is downloading the free ebook she references in the post. It talks about being a gatekeeper for your children, and has excellent, wise advice on how to help them navigate things like electronics, smartphones, social media, and dating.
I’ve enjoyed going through the From Frustration to Functional Closet Challenge this month. It’s helped me focus on which of my clothing pieces I really love, and shown me ways to create outfit formulas that work for my lifestyle.
This Warm Crockpot 7-Layer Dip will be on my Super Bowl-watching menu!
Here are the books I’ve read so far in January.
Giddy Up, Eunice: Because Women Need Each Other by Sophie Hudson. I’m a fan of Sophie’s writing (and podcasting!), so I’m not sure how I missed this book when it first came out. She does a great job of highlighting the need for women to connect across generations by developing relationships with those who are younger than we are as well as older than we are. We all have much to learn from each other! I love her writing style, weaving Biblical truths in with personal stories that are so relatable – and always with a generous dash of humor! I’d recommend this book.
I finished my first book on prayer this month, R.A. Torrey’s How to Pray. This book covers the basics of prayer in short chapters. It’s an easy-to-read book with some real depth to it.
My fiction read was The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay. I’ve read several of her Jane-Austen themed books. Like the others, it took me a little while to get into it, but once I did, I very much enjoyed it!
Finally, I finished The Armor of God Bible study by Priscilla Shirer this week. As I’ve mentioned before, I loved this Bible study! It was a great guide for my morning devotions. I’m moving on to her Discerning the Voice of God Bible study, and will let you know how that one goes.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
