Weekly Challenges & Resources for Rest & Release

For those who have joined me, each fall, for the Making Your Home a Haven Series– that series is being replaced this year, with a study titled: Rest and Release.  This study is “Making Your Home a Haven 2.0″.   It’s going to be even BETTER than past years because we are mixing the familiar challenges WITH a study of God’s Word.  This is going to be SO good!

Do you struggle to find rest for your soul, on the hamster wheel of life?

Do you feel like your load – your portion in life – is a bit too heavy and wonder what God is doing or why you must struggle and wrestle so much?

Do you wish you could just release it all?

Me too.

Below is the list of challenges so you can prepare.  Each week, I will provide for you a practical challenge of something I do in my home that helps me rest and live blessed.  I hope you will take the challenges. They do make a difference!

Weekly Challenges:

Week 1: Stop

Go buy an extra large candle and light your candle...

A Heart to Heart Chat: Up Close & Personal

Your response to the new Rest and Release Bible Study has been amazing!!!  I cannot wait to begin this study with you, in just 2 weeks!

But first, I want to have a heart to heart chat with you.  I do not want this study to be about my personal life.  I want it to be about Jesus – drawing in deeper to Him, resting in Him and releasing whatever burdens you are carrying, to Him.

So, I made a pre-video.

It’s a bit more personal than the study will be because I want the Bible Study to apply to all of us, in all of our different walks of life.  But for today…I just want to open up to you about my own personal pain and struggles and how God has drawn me in deeper, as I’ve walked through some hard stuff.

I hope this video explained my heart behind the study.

We begin the study: Rest and Release on October 1st!

This is a 4-week study that runs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays here on the...

Introducing The New Fall Bible Study Titled: Rest and Release

It had been a month since I had slept through the night without waking too early and letting my mind race.

Due to emotional stress, I had lost about 15 pounds in 30 days and I struggled each morning to put one foot in front of the other. The shock of my husband moving out and my world turning completely upside down, did not change the fact that I had a full calendar. I had children to homeschool, meals to cook, and holidays to make special for the kids. I also had an on-line Bible Study to lead, as we began our study through the book of Job.

I remember hitting the red button to stop recording my Youtube for the study in Job. I smiled throughout the video and the minute I stopped the recording, I literally broke down in tears. Then I gave thanks to God that he held me throughout that video. He gave me words and strength to smile, in the midst of my very personal and private mess.

In time, days turned to months and months turned to seasons and seasons turned to a complete year passing. 2016...

Something New is Coming This Fall…

It’s been over 4 months since I’ve sat down to write a blog post.  It feels so good to pop in here!  I cannot WAIT to get back to you all!

I want to share that my blogging break has been exactly what I’ve needed.  I have taken time to be alone with the Lord and listen to Him.  I have taken time this summer to be with my kids and listen and laugh and cry and eat and explore and soak in every precious moment and memory.   I took the kids for a week to the beach and did a little getaway with some of my friends, to rest and refuel.  I’ve read and read and read many books (I hope to share some of those with you someday soon).  I’ve cleaned out closets and threw away a lot of useless things and redecorated a few rooms as well.  And I’ve taken time to pray and try to figure out what God wants for me in my life and my ministry.

I can’t say that I really have any of figured it out – but I do have peace and some direction.

I know that many of...

9 Years of Of My Blogging Summed Up Here…

This week, the Good Morning Girls completed the final chapters of the book of Luke.  Now we are on an extended break.  Our reading this week was heavy yet full of hope, as we looked more deeply at the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus.

Because He Lives – I can face tomorrow!

That is what this blog is all about.

Jesus – the King of Kings.  

He died for you and me – to take away our sins. And He loves us and He desires to walk intimately with you.

In August of 2008, I began my blog here at WomenLivingWell.org. The future was unknown.  I did not know how to make a Youtube, or how to put words on an image and I did not have a Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram account.  Good Morning Girls was a ministry in my church that I had begun in real life but it did not exist on-line.  And I had zero blogging friends and definitely no publishers, conferences or television shows – ringing my phone line.

I was a wife and a homeschool mom – two...
