Living a Life You Love by Joyce Meyer

Many thanks to FaithWords for the opportunity to review this book

Easter 2018 was one for the record books.

Our church musician was ill and had to go to the hospital.
Our pastor fell ill just before Easter service and was rushed to the hospital.

Our church sat in silence as paramedics attended to our beloved pastor. I often say "Don't pray and worry" but as I sat there on that weathered church pew I was worried. Our pastor is such a vibrant person and seeing him struggling to catch his bearings knowing there was nothing I could do but pray worrying my prayers wouldn't be enough.

Yet, even as hope seemed to fade I thought back to some words spoken at the Spring Revival earlier that week.  The guest pastor asked the congregation "Who could use a little more faith?"  Hands all over the church raised high... including mine.  

Again, the pastor asked "Who could use a little more faith?"

More hands joined in and then the pastor said "Everything you NEED you already have."  He went on to explain how we let the day to day make us forget we have enough and we are enough.

This past week I started reading Joyce Meyer's latest book "Living a Life You Love" and as I turn each page I am reminded of the pastor's words that I am enough. 
Learn how to shift your perspective so that you may enjoy every moment and every part of life with #1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer.

It’s common to be more frustrated with life than at peace with it, because the daily grind wears you down. Responsibilities and burdens become heavy and rob you of the happiness you’re meant to have as a child of God.

But you can be hopeful, learn to rise above your challenges, and be filled with wonder at what God might do every day.

You will learn how to love life fully, in spite of your obstacles, and experience the happiness that is promised to you.

Joyce will explain:

  • Why you can’t love life unless love is the central theme of it,
  • Why your attitude affects your life more than any outside circumstances,
  • How the love, help, and kindness you give away will come back to you immeasurably,
  • How to look to the future and keep your joy,
  • And so much more!
God has already blessed you with a life to love–and it’s time to start LIVING A LIFE YOU LOVE.

Don't let the stresses of the world keep you from living a life YOU love.  Take some time out for yourself every day to keep yourself healthy mind, body and spirit.  

My pastor will be fine.  His doctor ordered him to rest and although we will miss him at service this Sunday, we are so happy he is recuperating.  Take care of yourself and if it something in your life is stealing your joy, find a way to remove it so you can life a life YOU love.

Meyer's Living a Life You Love: Embracing the Adventure of Being Led by the Holy Spirit is in bookstores nationwide.

Apparently there's a coin shortage.  Signs are posted in the storefront windows everywhere saying "COIN SHORTAGE - EXACT CHANGE".   The pandemic has definitely affected our pockets and we are looking for ways to maximize our income without having to tap into our savings. Learning to budget can be a daunting task but knowing where you spend your hard earned money is the first step.  There are lots of books available to help get you started.  Currently, I'm reading The 30-Minute Money Plan for Moms by Catey Hill.  Financial expert Catey Hill shows moms how to spend less and save big in this savvy guide where each step is designed to take 30 minutes max.   Let’s face it, kids are expensive–in 24 states, daycare actually costs more than in-state college tuition!

And sure, you know you should learn how to get the most o

Come Out & Play BUT Let's Practice Social Distancing

Come Out & Play  BUT Remember   To   Practice Social Distancing COVID-19, Coronavirus, Da Rona, whatever you're calling it has definitely changed all of our lives.  Families are spending more and more time together.  My husband teases me saying I've spent more time in the backyard since March than I have in the entire 15 years we've lived in our home.  Sad thing is... he's right. We planted a garden.  It was kinda by chance.  I bought these seeds and this starter compost.  Put them near the kitchen and after about a week or so, I started noticing gnats in my kitchen.  I figured it was some of the fresh fruit gone bad.  Tossed the fruit. Wiped everything down.  Gnats were gone.  A few days later... the gnats returned.  FINALLY figured out it that I had this dirt near the kitchen and remembered "Oh, you were going to start gardening."   Seeds planted.  Watered.  Now we wait.  It'll be a few weeks but I am so looking forward to cutting fresh spinach and
