Having my blog out there for the last couple of weeks has been so humbling! God is showing me how much he is using it to encourage others but also grow me up in my confidence level of sharing with others boldly. I know this seems hard for some of you believe that I would be shy! :0 Last week my most cherished day was when I heard from a childhood friend who ordered the lighted bedroom slippers for her entire family! 🙂 They walked around their house (in the dark) during this holiday season of our Savior’s birth saying “we are the light of Jesus to a dark world”!! How awesome is that! Thanks Claudia!
I had some housekeeping things that I wanted to share as I have been trying to work out all the kinks with using the site of wordpress.
Many of you signed up (on the right side of the blog page) to subscribe whenever the blog is updated. Some of you have shared that you are still not getting the updates. My computer guy (Kevin) has figured that there are two issues causing this.
1 – when you subscribe you will sometimes get a confirmation email to make sure you really want to receive these updates. You have to respond to that email within a time frame to make the final step complete and start receiving the emails.
2 – Kevin found that his posts updates were going to his junk mail….how horrible! He said once he moved it into his inbox things were fine.
Please do share this blog with friends and family. If time would allow, I would love to share these thoughts with just 2-5 people over a cup of coffee each time I post especially since I just got this fan-dancy new coffee maker for Christmas! However, God has mentioned that he is wanting me to share it with many and do something bigger than I know with this blog. Can’t wait to see his results! So share away! Don’t be shy!
Also…Don’t be afraid to make comments on the post. It gives me huge feedback! I remember when I first commented on a blog – I got scared! haha! Then I realized how much it blessed that person by me responding with just a few short words. It also confirmed in my heart that the message was received and hopefully put into action on my part! I have seen where friends that have blogs have small give aways to encourage people to comment…might have to consider that!?
Come back to visit tomorrow as I will be sharing more excerpts from the “Made to Crave” book!
Blessings to you and a Happy New Year! Thanks for being apart of my life as God is changing me through this more than you will ever know.
Love you All!
Keep it coming! I LOVED the lighted slippers too.
Thanks! Tad said he was considering getting you a pair! 🙂
Amy, I just want to say thank you for sharing your blog. I have enjoyed reading your thoughts and I encourage you to keep this up! Putting yourself “out there” is scary and uncertain – kudos to you for your courage. Can’t wait to read more about your journey and how God has led you to the place you are today.
I am a fan of Proverbs 31 website, too. What a wonderful resource for those of us ladies who aspire God’s best for ourselves and our families!
Blessings to you –
Thanks Diane! I think I remember English being a good subject for you! I bet you could teach me a thing or two about writing! Hope you are doing well! Happy New Year!
I don’t think you realize how much wisdom you have and how much others actually learn from you! Keep it up 🙂
Wow…where can I get those lighted slippers? 🙂
Thanks for your blog. I am enjoying them so much. I see how God is using you each day. Thanks and keep it up. I plan to buy the book you suggested and maybe use it in a small group study.
