And the Adventures Continue!

Hello SUM Nation! We’ve had a blast this month walking down memory lane, doing a LIVE Webcast, announcing our ordinations and celebrating YOU! Did you enjoy the stories? Lynn and I have had some crazy adventures together, and we have taken you with us in our hearts every time. We’ve written two books together—Winning Him Without Words and Not Alone—Bible studies you, the SUMites, asked us for. Which then led to invitations to speak at conferences, to be on Focus on the Family, FamilyLife Today, Dr. Dobson and INSIGHT on The Miracle Channel. Lynn even did an interview on the 700 Club! She’s the big adventurer in this duo, that’s for sure. Lynn and I have talked a lot about our adventures this month and laughed—a lot! She has said I was the one who gave her the gift of saying “yes,” when she said “let’s go!” Honestly, I believe... Read more →

A Testimony of Kindness

My friends, you are going to love this story. Our very own Lynette Duquette shares her recent encounter and divine appointment to help someone. Read and be inspired! God is so good and loves it when we partner with Him to do things like this! My Story of Generosity by Lynette Duquette I wasn't alone for this, but it had a profound impact on me. Last night I was at my CR step study. We had just finished up and I was sharing that I was still struggling with what happened at my last church. I am having a hard time trusting any spiritual male authority in my life right now. As we were finsihing up, we heard pounding on the door, and being in a bad past of town, we all were a bit scared. We all answered the door together. There stood Jane. She was wearing only pants,... Read more →

SUM News!

My friends, I know I said last week that we’d be discussing Luke chapters one and two today, but we have a lot going on at the moment in the radio-sphere, the blogosphere, the web-sphere and a few other places that we want to make sure you get to take part in. So today’s post is kind of a coral ‘em up and keep you “posted” day. We will go back to our journey with Mary and Joseph either Saturday or next Wednesday. And I’m working on a little gift for you too—something you’ll be able to download and enjoy. Stay tuned for that! So here’s what’s happening, SUMites! Lynn will be on 700 Club Interactive tomorrow morning from 11:00 to 11:30 am Eastern time. I’m SO excited to catch this LIVE interview. Let’s keep her in our prayers and pray for those who Abba brings our way as a... Read more →

A Letter From God To Every Mother

I want to encourage all of our new friends who found our community here yesterday. And I want to love and encourage those who find us today. Mostly I want to encourage our entire family who meets here every day to share life, love and our Savior. I adore you. Thank you for loving each other and our Jesus. Today, the Family Talk broadcast will talk about raising children in a spiritually mismatched home. I’m absolutely passionate about this issue. Truly, when I was a young mom, I feared that my husband’s unbelief would influence my daughter, perhaps even affecting her eternity. But.... Our faithful God loves to answer prayers of mother’s who bring their children before Him each morning by name. <-- (Click to Tweet) Our newest book that releases October 7, 2013 is all about this topic. And I promise you, God showed up while Dineen and I... Read more →

Welcome... And Who Are You?

Lynn Donovan Who am I? I’m ordinary. I’m a mom, a wife, a weekend gardener and a follower of Jesus. I’m a believer who is sold out for my Papa, Daddy and I refuse to live lifeless Christianity any longer. I believe the Bible. Every Word. I love people and like flowers. I see God’s face in nature. Every…. single….. day…. I hear His voice and I live on the edge because God likes surprises and He still training me. I refuse to live a comfortable faith because that JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH anymore. I am in His army and I’ve been bloodied but I’ve also watch God move in the supernatural that leaves me undone. ON THE FLOOR…. undone. Children are God’s best gift in life. And I believe in marriage and as a follower of Jesus I can THRIVE in my marriage, parenting and live a life of... Read more →

SUMite Nation! A Lot Is Happening!

Good Monday Everyone, There are a lot of things happening in our SUMite Nation over the next couple of weeks. On Wednesday, we will be ready to launch our new Ministry website. And we will be asking you to partner with us to welcome in the newbies. We, the mismatched, who have been walking this road for some time, can wrap our love and cyber arms around those who find our home in the next few days. We can pray and encourage and let God’s people know that we have hope. We have hope for the supernatural. We have hope for the salvation of our spouse. We have hope knowing our children will be centered in the will of God. And we KNOW that living in the Presence…. Changes EVERYTHING! Watch for that announcement here on Wednesday. On Thursday please tune in and find a radio station that carries Dr.... Read more →

Our Day with FamilyTalk and Dr. Dobson

My friends, I'm so pumped that I get to share some pictures and the cool stuff God did while we were in Colorado Springs doing our taped interview with Dr. Dobson and his son, Ryan Dobson, two incredible men of God! When we flew into Denver Wednesday, we went pick up our rental car. Before you leave the lot you have to be check by the security guard. This man was so friendly from the get go and asked the usual questions like what brings you to Colorado. We told him why we were there and next thing we knew this dear man, James, was down on his knees next to our car praying for us! (We sensed he might be a believer.) He said it was an honor to do so because he'd rather think of other people instead of his own stuff. LOL! What a blessing! Angel is... Read more →

On Our Way - Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson

Hi SUMites! Wow, reading the testimonies from Monday’s post just stirs my faith. Thank you for taking time to share your faith walk with God’s people. When we share the faithfulness of God and testimonies in our lives with others, two things happen. One, God receives glory. Two, it bolsters our faith. And the testimony of one can become the reality for another believer. Not sure how God does that but it’s how His Kingdom rolls!!! Anyhoo, today Dineen and I are on our way to Colorado Springs, Colorado. We are meeting up at the Denver airport and then spending the next two days together. I can’t wait. We are going to have an amazing time and we plan to spend some time praying for all of you. We truly love you, Sumites, and pray for your lives. On Thursday we are headed to the studios of Family Talk with... Read more →
