First of all, my goodness gracious it's been a LONG time since I've written on my blog. As usual, no real excuses - just life getting in the way! And how am I doing on my "word for the year"? Well, my word is disciplined and I'm guessing you figured out that since I haven't been writing I haven't been very disciplined and you'd be correct. But I am working on it.
I am in my last week of an online Bible study I Used To Be So Organized. Let me tell you it's an awesome study. It's not just about getting your home life organized but more importantly it's about getting your spiritual life organized first before moving on to the physical things. Melissa Taylor is leading the study and all I can say is it has been an amazing.
In fact, I've enjoyed it so much and gained so much from it that I've already signed up for the next online study. This one is Unglued by Lysa TerKeurst. As a mom of two teenage boys I tend to come unglued quite often. It doesn't take much for me to blow up and I don't like myself when that happens. I know that is not how God wants me to react. So, I'm ready to do something about those explosions. I'm ready to seek God in my moments of falling apart instead of trying to handle my emotions myself.
When my boys were young I did not do good job of committing to reading my Bible and having daily devotions. It's something I've been working on over the years and I'm finally getting better at it. I wish I had had a Bible that I could use that was geared toward moms who were seeking to put Gid first in their lives. I really believe I would have been more consistent in my reading and studying if that was available to me.
So, my friends, that is what I want to give you! An opportunity to get yourself and your emotions put back together! One lucky person will win a copy of Unglued and a copy of The Busy Mom's Bible. Here is how you can enter. Leave a comment here telling me about an unglued moment in your life. You can also have two additional entries by posting on Facebook about the giveaway and tweeting about it. If you do either of those please leave a comment letting me know. I'll randomly choose a winner from the comments.
The contest will close at midnight Friday, 8/17/2012. Best of luck!
