Good Morning Beautiful Girlfriends!

I pray that your week has been great! I can't believe that summer is passing by so quickly. It has been so hot on the east coast. I love hot weather but this has been ridiculous!

Be encouraged today no matter what you are walking through. The enemy is on the prowl and he continues to attack the family, marriages and the church. I know how difficult it is when you are trying to make sense of things, especially when your life appears to be crumbling on all sides, but God is still bigger than all of this.

I would like to ask you to pray for one another in this group. I know that we don't know everyone but many are really dealing with some major challenges in their lives. God knows who they are and He will hear and answer our prayers. My desire for this group is to be an encouragement and support for one another. Will you lift one another in prayer throughout the week? There is absolutely power in a group of ministry women praying to our Heavenly Father!!

May God bless you, your family and your ministry this week! When the enemy comes knocking I pray the power of God to knock him on his backside!!! God loves you and He only wants the very best for you. Be encouraged. God is still on the throne!! His plan and purpose for your lives is amazing!!

Appreciate you and all of your emails I receive weekly. Your encouraging words always come when I need them most.

Love you,

Good Morning Beautiful Girlfriends!

I pray that you are having a great summer and have had an opportunity to vacation with your family or are making plans to do that soon. Taking a break from the ministry is vital to our survival!

I want to encourage you today to continue to look to Christ for your answers. I know the road we travel often becomes cluttered and confusing but God is still in control. For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV). One of my very favorite scriptures!! What power and promise God has given us in these words.

I know life is sometimes difficult, discouraging and downright disappointing but God promises us that he will see us through to a glorious conclusion. God believes in us and he will be with us all the way. He knows the future, and his plans for us are awesome. As long as God provides our agenda and goes with us as we fulfill his mission, we can have boundless hope.

Hold on tight to God's will for your lives no matter what valley you may be treading today. The Bible tells us that God will never leave us nor forsake us. That my friend is comfort food!!!

I pray that you will have an awesome day in God's House and that His power and presence will be mighty! Many blessings to you and your family!

You are appreciated and loved!

Good Morning Beautiful Girlfriends!

My hubby and I were out of the country last week on a much needed vacation to celebrate our upcoming 37th wedding anniversary! It was amazing!!! But I am back and anxious to get back in the saddle full swing with posting on FB and blogging. I sincerely missed my ministry opportunities on the net while we were away.

Just simply want to encourage you today to find someone who needs to be encouraged this week. Maybe that sounds ridiculous to you, especially if you are struggling, but God blesses us when we bless others. Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:24 NIV).

Facebook has been an incredible platform for ministry. I never dreamed in a zillion years that I could possibly minister to so many women over the net. But I believe God will use us anywhere He can so that we can encourage and love others. We definitely need other Christian women in our lives to instruct and encourage. I welcome every prayer from everywhere I can receive!!! :-)

Would you please keep our son and daughter-in-law in your prayers today and tomorrow as they travel back home to MO? They are making it a two day journey because of her pregnancy. Also, Brandon and Tour 29:11 Ministries leave on Thursday for ministry in Nicaragua. Would you also pray with me for safe traveling mercies and God's anointing as they preach God's Word?

Girlfriends, I am so thankful for each of you. You are a blessing to me daily and your encouraging words always come at the most crucial time. Have a wonderful God filled week. Please know that I am only an email away if I can encourage and pray for you. May God bless you, your family and ministry abundantly! I pray for God's anointing to fill your life to overflowing!!!

Love you,
