****FYI: The winners of Tom Wheeler’s book, Second Wind, are listed below at the end of my post****
Friends, today is my 48th birthday. The first verse that came to mind this morning was one of my favorites:
“This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
And I am rejoicing today!!
Rejoicing for what God has done in my life and excited for what this next year holds. God has blessed me with a most wonderful ministry. He has placed each of you in my life, and I am so very thankful.
Life started for me as an only child. I often felt lonely and longed for a sister. But it was never meant to be. Along the way, He blessed me with girlfriends…amazing girlfriends…who have been like sisters to me. But little did I know how God would answer the cry of this little girl’s heart who prayed for one sister!
He has blessed me with more sisters…sisters in Christ…than I could have ever imagined possible. Ephesians 3:20 sisters!!
He brought me to Proverbs 31 Ministries and a sisterhood who love Him and each other. Their heartbeat the same as mine…to minister to women. What a blessing it has been to serve alongside such godly women.
Then, with the publishing of my book Hidden Joy and my first on-line study, He brought more sisters into my life. Meeting many of you and leading the Hidden Joy study has changed my ministry and my life forever. It led me to do more on-line studies. Each one bringing more and more women into my life…women who are all seeking the same thing…more of JESUS, more of HIS WORD, more of HIS ACTIVITY in our lives.
Well, I am excited to announce He has laid a new study on my heart!! We will begin the second week of November. I will send an invitation soon as well as do an official blog post and video announcement. But I wanted to share it with you today…this day…my birthday!!
This new study is entitled “So That…” Living: Our Call to Action.
We will explore the “so that” Scriptures in the New Testament and cover the following areas:
God Spoke So That…
Pray So That…

This study that will bring God’s living and active Word alive in new and fresh ways. I cannot wait!
