My friends, we have some exciting news to share. Starting today, Lynn and I will be part of the myKLOVE Mobile App line up of challenges and resources. We would love for you, our SUMite family, to download this app and join us there. This is a new audience for our community to reach out to and share the love and truth of God's presence and love working in mismatched marriages.
The link to download this app on your smartphone is at the end of this post, but let me first tell you the story of how this amazing thing happened. I share this story in my new book I'm working on but I want you, our SUM family, to hear about it here. This was a breakthrough for me in my faith walk, my friends.
You see, I'd been praying for this for a long time, for our ministry to somehow be featured on K-LOVE. I'd even written it on my dream list. I love this station. My girls and I have listened to it for years. I've supported Air-1 financially in the past and now support K-LOVE as it has ministered to me in my life these last few years in a great way.
Trish Fuhlendorf, who has written guest posts for us, helped me connect to their rep for the CA area. This dear woman, Edee, worked up a proposal for us and even recommended the app over the website as she felt our ministry would reach more people there.
My friends, I so wanted to do this but the cost was prohibitive. I'd put away a small amount of funds from my design work, but it just didn't seem enough. And in the midst of this, specific people and ministries I care about were coming forward with needs and the Holy Spirit was nudging me to support them. So I did and watched my balance go down. Each time I prayed in trust for God to provide the funds we needed to do something on K-LOVE...one day.
I let Edee know this too. She completely understood and asked if it was okay to still tell their team about our ministry here. Of course I told her to do so with the promise that we here at SUM would love on anyone they sent our way. That is our heart here, SUMites. We love all who come and share the hope Jesus has given us.
One more ministry need presented itself—a friend and her family planting a church in a country predominantly Muslim. I prayed and pondered for almost a week. My funds were almost gone. But the question became, was I truly willing to trust God completely for this? I sat in front of my computer and prayed as I sent the money to help. I told God I would trust Him to provide what we needed.
Are you ready to hear what happened next?
The very next day Edee called and left a message for me. Their team was moved by our ministry and wanted to help. They wanted to share the SUM ministry with the myK-LOVE community at no cost to us. Free…a gift.
My friends, I bawled. It was an astounding moment for me. I not only witnessed the truth of Luke 6:38, but had an important breakthrough. The truth hit me deeply that not only was God good, He was good to me.
Dear friends, God's faithfulness and goodness astound me. Today I have the honor of presenting our first resource, “I Can’t Save My Spouse,” on the myKLOVE Mobile App. On May 4th, Lynn will present a Mother's Day challenge that is absolutely beautiful. We will be sure to let you know each time we're featured on the app.

SUMites, Abba is taking us to a whole new level. We've talked about this in the past, that He's been preparing us for what's next and now here it is. He is taking our "church without walls" into the world to minister and share the truths we have come to know, live and love in our marriages and in our faith lives. We have grown and overcome, we have shared our victories and breakthroughs, and we have helped others to find theirs.
God is so good. My friends, let's praise and rejoice in Him today. Let's make our Papa God proud.
I love you all so, so much.
