Happy middle of the week friends! Just wanted to pop in and say hello, and say I have loved hearing from you the past week! I love hearing what some of your favorite pieces are from the new Noonday fall line – and wanted to say congrats to Danielle Martino for winning the ruffled make up bag! She also will get some yummy Rodan + Fields product from my long time friend, Nicole Binniker [who has also become a Noonday shopper!] If you haven’t had a chance to make it to a trunk show this season yet, you are going to want to do that! If you don’t know who the ambassador is in your area, go to this link + scroll to the bottom to find “connect with your local ambassador”. The home office team will connect you, it’s that easy!
I also loved reading through all of your submissions for why you want to win my copy of Jen Hatmakers revised and expanded, Interrupted! So many of you ladies are seeking, and searching and excited that God is opening your world view and wrecking your comfortable christiantiy. and I want to encourage you, even if you don’t win this book – head over to amazon, or barnes + noble and get yourself one! better yet, get two and pass one along to a friend? The winner of this book is Grace Cho. Congrats friend!
I just love that when God is speaking to me, He is so obvious. He’s poured into me so much this week through His Word, through ASK CBS ministry, through Mid Cities girls night, IF Equip Galatians study and I’m so thankful. It was just what my soul needed to recharge and be filled to overflowing again. I hope this encourages you to seek the Lord, to ask Him to fill you, ask Him to put people and ministry opportunities in your path that will draw you closer to him. He is faithful, and he will do it.
This weekend I’m headed outta town for the first ever Royal Daughters Glampout in Fredricksberg, Texas put on by the Beloved Society…led by my dear friends Alison + Beth. If you are a mom or a wife and you are cautious to leave your family for a weekend – let me just encourage you that it is time well spent. There is something about leaving all the daily duties behind, and getting in your car, or on an airplane, and driving away from it all for a few days. I can speak from personal experience – but it only makes me a better wife and mom. Getting away to be refreshed, spending time in Gods word, fellowshiping, eating yummy food, and late nights in jammies talking with your girlfriends…it is for sure food for my soul.
So I can’t wait for the glampout, and Jenna’s yummy food, and fancy dress up night, and sitting around the campfire, and breathing in the hill country for the weekend. Me, Wendy, Jody and Sarah will be taking off from Midland Friday and I might be counting down the days. There’s also something special about getting outta town with the girlfriends you do life with in your community. I haven’t gotten to do this with most of this crew yet, so…lots of stories to come I’m sure!
I hope you all have a happy weekend! I might be popping back in this week with an encouraging word, or I might not see you until next week 🙂 that’s what the freedom of the last week of summer means right?
