Welcome back, friend.
I pray Spring is whispering sunshine-scented joy into your home and life this week.
Friends, with all the things going on in my world, I’ve somehow managed to miss the Spotlight & Giveaway drawings for February and March!
So, guess what?
We’re gonna do this thing Party Style with all three drawings this week!!
Let’s get this party started, shall we?!
Our Spring Spotlights are:
Gretchen Fleming: Gretchen is a Bible study teacher, women’s speaker and an active blogger and writer.
I love this sweet quote of Gretchen’s: “My passion is to follow hard after Jesus, knowing He is the treasure of a lifetime and worth every minute I commit to Him. God’s Word has been life-giving through the most trying times—a great source of strength, wisdom, and truth. It is my heartfelt desire to encourage women in their faith with the hope I have found in His Word.”
Isn’t that beautiful? If you’re not already following Gretchen, her online home can be found at GretchenFleming.com. Gretchen’s wisdom and teachings are so timely for today’s woman, and always point us back to Christ. ♥
Donna Reidland: Donna is a wife, mother, grandmother, writer, and Biblical counselor who loves sharing God’s truth.
I love this description Donna gives herself so much, “…But mostly I’m just a sister in Christ.” And a beautiful part of the sisterhood you are, Donna.
Y’all, as I was preparing this yesterday, I came across Donna’s testimony on her site, and—it is a must read. Such a lovely story of redemption and grace.
Rachel Lee: Rachel is “on a mission to live a life of inspiration by fiercely pursuing Jesus, and encouraging others along the way” Not only is Rachel a gifted writer, she’s also a wife and mother of eight!
I knew Rachel and I would get along just fine when I read this quote of hers: “I LOVE me some Jesus! Where would I possibly be without Him? He has carried me from the time of my birth, until now. He has loved me, forgiven me, shepherded me, guided me, protected me, taught me, and nurtured me all my life. He’s my favorite, and I owe everything I am to Him.”
If you ladies would send me your info, I’ll get those gifts right out to you.
As always, thank you to every single one of you who participate in this sisterhood. I’m so grateful your ministry of words have found community here.
NOTE: Please be sure to join me back here next week for a very special #ChasingCommunity announcement.
