I’m throwing a party!! And you, sweet friends, are invited!!

Why is today so special?

Because it’s a day to celebrate answered prayer and God’s faithfulness! God opened a door that only He could open for my newest book, Living So That: Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life!


A few years ago, I sat down to write a new Bible study for my girls here in Charlotte. Little did I know that a year later the study I wrote would end up in the hands of Thomas Nelson publishing and be chosen to be part of their new Inscribed Collection.


So we’re hosting a party to celebrate!

And what would a party be without gifts?!?!

In the short (6 minute) message below, I share a bit more about Living So That.

Living “so that” comes down to choices.

We can make faith-filled choices or we can make faith-less choices.

Faith-less choices come easier and occur when we react quickly out of our emotions and do what comes naturally. They lead to a frazzled, highly charged, chaotic life.

Faith-filled choices are more challenging. They require patience and occur when we react not out of our emotions but out of a Spirit-led heart and mind. They lead to a peaceful, content, more fulfilled life.

I found myself making faith-less choices day in and day out, which often left me feeling like the worst wife, mom, friend, and co-worker. Can you relate?

Tired of feeling unequipped for daily living, I dug into my Bible and discovered two words that have changed the way I read Scripture and live my life: “so that.”  

Living So That dives deeply into God’s Word. Each chapter helps you gain a new perspective on daily living and studies the “so that” Scriptures in the New Testament, covering topics like:

•  Jesus Came So That
•  God Spoke So That
•  Pray So That
•  Trials Come So That
•  Let Your Light Shine So That

You’ll find prayers, biblical teaching, personal stories, application questions, “going deeper” sections, and calls to action to put into practice what you have learned.

To discover all you need to know about Living So That, click here. On this page, you’ll find more information about the book, an invitation to share the free five-day devotional, a link to sign up for the Proverbs 31 Living So That online Bible study, learn what others are saying about LST, find tweets to share, and discover great promotions for bulk purchases of LST for your church and/or small group.

And if you order your copy of Living So That from Proverbs 31 by March 14th, I’ll sign your book! Click here to order your copy today.

Over the next month, we’ll be having fun giveaways to celebrate Living So That‘s release. In fact, over the next few weeks on our Inscribed Facebook page, we’ll be giving away books from the Inscribed Collection, including Living So That. I’ll be hosting our Facebook page next week, so please stop by and visit. You’ll find our page by clicking here.
