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 →

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.


For Every Mom Who Is Praying For A Prodigal

AMAZING stories were shared on Monday! SUMites, it is a privilege to be among you. Your love for Jesus and your family coupled with your wisdom, is truly a gift to me, Dineen and our entire family here on the web. Today I want to wrap up chapter four. I remain very passionate about the subject of raising our kids to faith and share many successful ideas in this chapter. If you listened in to any of the radio interviews I did this week, you heard me share some of them. But today, my heart bleeds for all the mamas who are crying for their lost children. Those who have turned away from God. The adult children that cause our hearts to sting and our eyes to leak. So this post is for those of you who are praying for prodigal adults. An excerpt from Not Alone, the Appendix 1:... Read more →

You are Not Alone in the Dark

Guest Post by Arlene Pellicane Giveaway: 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom I was attending Dave Ramsay’s Financial Peace University when a not-so-peaceful thing happened. On my way out of the restroom, I read a sign posted, “If you’re not using the lights, please turn them off.” I thought I was alone so I flipped the switch. Before the door shut behind me, I heard a shrill, fear-filled scream from inside the bathroom. It sounded like a young girl. I hurried back in and turned on the light. “I’m so sorry,” I said to the apparently occupied stall. “I didn’t know you were in here.” I thought about that little girl’s scream for a while. The feeling of her fear lingered with me. She was terrified by the darkness and the uncertainty of being in the bathroom in the blackness. Are there things about motherhood that scare you stiff?...

Parenting Supernaturally

How is our parenting supernatural? We find the answer in a powerful passage of God’s Word…. And this paragraph was written specifically for all of us who are married to unbelievers. For the rest of you who are in mixed marriages—Christian married to non-Christian—we have no explicit command from the Master. So this is what you must do. If you are a man with a wife who is not a believer but who still wants to live with you, hold on to her. If you are a woman with a husband who is not a believer but he wants to live with you, hold on to him. The unbelieving husband shares to an extent in the holiness of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is likewise touched by the holiness of her husband. Otherwise, your children would be left out; as it is, they also are included in the spiritual... Read more →

How To Be The MOST Powerful Voice In Your Kid's Lives

Back To School: Equipping Kids in a contrary culture (Lynn) Every, single, day our children are bombarded with voices. Social media and television shout continual messages of entitlement, moral ambiguity, hate, lust and fear, to name only a few. Sheesh! With so much chatter coming at our kids we can fear our voice might be drowned out by voices sent from the darkness. And there are moments in our own home where our children receive conflicting messages from Dad about moral choices, (television, video games, and cultural issues). I know as a young mom I experienced moments of doubt and fear and this upsetting question would flash into my mind: Will my kids go to heaven? How do we help our kids find and follow Jesus in today’s culture? How do we as believing parents help our children listen to the right voices? I have a very simple answer: The... Read more →

FREE RESOURCE

SUMite Leaders: All of us are leaders by the way. But for all of you who the Holy Spirit has been nagging to start a small group in your area, this is for you. Fall is around the corner and churches are starting to put their fall Bible studies and small groups together. Perhaps you are to step out a lead one. Leading a small group in this area that you know well, is one of the most rewarding experiences in your faith walk. So pray about starting a small group. Read the booklet in the sidebar. Pray... Pray again. Recruit a friend to lead with you. And use the many resources that are here to help.

Keys To The Kingdom - Part I

SUMites: I have a thing about keys. Last week I believe the Lord poured out revelation upon me regarding keys and their significance in the Kingdom. I also believe that the revelation was not only specific to myself but also to others. Way back in 2009 I penciled together an idea for a book. That book was centered on 10 keys. Winning Him Without Words, was the result and the keys became profound in my life and by default, in a lot of other lives who have read the book and will read the book. Then last year I had a dream. I rarely remember my dreams but on this particular night I dreamt that Jesus handed me three keys. I could clearly see bronze skeleton keys. It was obvious to me they were tarnished and ancient. I knew somehow they were large and weighty. That’s all I remember about... Read more →

Let Them Cry by Joanne Kraft

Joanne Kraft is offering a snippet into her newest book today. Joanne and I have been friends for a long time. Our lives have been interestingly and divinely intertwined. She is a good friend who loves God. I was able to read her book and endorse it. Today, she shares some of her parenting wisdom. Thanks Joanne. Love you girl. Hugs, Lynn ----- My teenage son walked down the stairs with a frown on his face. College classes have gotten the best of him. My pep talk with him yesterday apparently wasn’t as good as I thought it was and my future as a motivational speaker went down in flames. When I brought my first child home from the hospital their cries were immediately met with a soothing rub and my full attention until the whimpers quieted. From baby tears to teenage sulking, I want to make my child happy.... Read more →

Reader Question

Hey ladies, You mentioned in your book together about how you handle media choices. Could you share some advice? Music, tv, entertainers (comedians), too much screen time overall? Also praying that pornography is not an current or future issue. Thanks! Jen Jen’s question is such a good one, my friends, and she graciously gave me permission to answer it here on our blog. What Choices? My friends, as we walk in closer intimacy with Jesus, we become more sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading. Don’t be surprised if you are finding yourself unable to read, watch and listen to things you used to. For example, I used to love to read thrillers and watch shows like Criminal Minds. I can’t anymore—haven’t been able to for a while. In fact, just the other night, my hubby and I were watching one of our shows together (we have a handful we both... Read more →

I'm Pissed Off!!!

Can I say that on a Christian blog? Well, at least it's a righteous anger..... Read with me and then share with me your thoughts. Hugs, Lynn Believing Wife – Agnostic Husband (names have been omitted for privacy) Earlier in the week, Dineen and I received an email from a reader who was seeking some perspective about her husband. When Dineen and I read it, almost simultaneously on different sides of America, the same thing happened. We both were filled with emotion. Heartbreak for our sweet SUMite and also a righteous anger. Here is a portion of her email and then a portion of my reply: My husband, a life-long believer, has become agnostic/atheist after reading about evolution and every book & lectures from a (well-known agnostic author), and has also become very politically liberal in his worldview. He has been sharing with our pre-teen (still believes) and teen (says... Read more →

New Series For July

Hi SUMite Family. Lynn Donovan here. Question: Can you believe half of 2014 is over??? We are jumping into the last half of the year and I still have so much I want to accomplish and even more I’m waiting for many, many prayers to be answered. So as we jump into July Dineen and I were thinking that we will take the first week of July off. So many of us are traveling, attending BBQ’s and just darn busy. We will pick up again on Monday, July 7th. I would like to take a quick study of the book, The Five Love Languages (in our sidebar). So SUMites, what is your love language? What is your spouse’s love language? Share on Facebook or in the comments. Can you guess mine? Dineen’s? What is the love language of Jesus? Hmmmm. Things to ponder. We will tackle this next week.

The Day the Devil Came to Steal My Life

Today it's my supreme pleasure to introduce you to Lisa Bujanda. She along with her husband, Gil, are the pastors of my church here in Temecula. I adore Lisa and count it a true blessing to have her as a sister in Christ. She has been walking in the gifts of the spirit since she had a miraculous encounter with love. So today, I pray her true and personal story will inspire you. I love you Lisa and Gil. May your story bring great honor and glory to Jesus. Hugs, Lynn ----- It was the week of my 23rd birthday. I was at death’s door with a Heart & Lung disease. Doctors had given me no hope and no cure. On October 3rd of 1983, I sat in the doctors office with my fiancé Gil as the doctors words echoed in our ears. “You have six months to a year... Read more →

Audio Books For Busy Wives and Moms

Hi Everyone: I have one more story to share about our book, Not Alone, before we launch into our next series. On Monday we are going to have a discussion about contending with the Orphan Spirit. And my friends, I can almost guarantee we have all faced this demon in some way or another. This is a must read! But today, as Dineen and I end our week sharing our hearts about parenting, I’m moved to share the words of our friend, Steve Smith. Steve represents Oasis Audio. Oasis Audio published our books in audio and they were released about two weeks ago. Steve went way beyond inconvenience to allow Dineen and I to record the books in our own voices. The audio team worked with a couple of ordinary moms and put together audio books so that some mom out there, who is driving to work and doesn’t have... Read more →

Hope For You, Mom!

Today I want to share a story with you that deeply touched me and Dineen. Below is a note I received from a young woman who is married and yet to have children. Her name is Stone. Dineen and I have come to know her and her story over the last several months as Stone lives near me here in California. Her story is horrific and also covered with redemption and love. She has faced great pain and fear and yet is finding hope. She is growing to be a Hope-Restorer. Let me set the stage. The note below was written to me shortly after Stone watched the 700 Club Interactive Broadcast where I talked about our new book, Not Alone. I shared the hope we have as believing mothers even in the midst of unfavorable circumstances (unbelieving father). Our hope is that we CAN raise our children well and... Read more →

Another Adventure

Good Monday Morning SUMites! Today is a fun and crazy day! Dineen and I will actually be in a recording studio in Los Angeles today and tomorrow. We will be narrating both of our books, Winning Him Without Words and Not Alone, creating an audio book. Say WHAT??? Who would ever guess us two wacky and ordinary gals would be doing such a thing. Who knew? No one is more surprised than the two of us. And how this came about was such a wonder. I remember receiving an email from our Editor, Kim Bangs, the Best Editor in the world, she wrote: More Awesome news! In the mail today we received three audio contracts from Oasis Audio for the creation of audio books from some Regal titles. TWO of those titles are yours! Both Winning Him Without Words and Not Alone! Whoooooooooooooooohoooooooooooooooooooooo! Happy, praising Jesus dance… Kim Since then... Read more →

The Aftermath

My friends, today I will finish my Bethel story but I want you to know that this adventure is far from over. Our journey with God is an ongoing adventure that unfolds on a daily basis. I’m stunned at times to go back and read in my journal what I’ve written down and then forgotten! I’m so glad I can go back and be reminded of these things because sometimes those little moments wind up being key to understanding what a big one means. As I will share today. I had a small moment before the conference where I found a dime and penny on the ground during one of my walks. God has me picking up pennies a lot this last year as part of my growing faith and trust in Him to provide for us during these financially trying times. I’ve shared much of that with you in...

Launch Day - Not Alone

I prayed away a bully! My daughter was in high school and for months and months during her senior year she was being bullied by another teen. The circumstances were such that a direct confrontation with this bully wasn’t possible so I did what any mom would do. I PRAYED. In our book, Not Alone, I share this story along with many others of how God makes every difference in the lives of our kids because we pray. God loves us so much and He loves our kids. This book is filled with real-life examples of how the faith of an ordinary mom can change seemingly impossible circumstances for the good of our children. Mostly this book will encourage every mother who ponders the question, “Am I enough to parent my child to become a life-long believer in Jesus?” There are answers in the pages that will fill your heart...

Weekend Worship — It's Almost Here...

My friends, with our book, Not Alone, officially releasing on Monday, Lynn and I will be online in several places that day. I hope you'll come join us in these discussions or listen in to the radio broadcasts. Go to our EVENTS tab on our MismatchedandThriving.com site to see times and links to these events. And as we are representing Jesus and this amazing SUMite community, will you pray for us? Ask the Holy Spirit to give us the words and to shine through us, so that listeners and readers will be drawn to Him and begin the journey to freedom and thriving—what this community is all about! Lynn and I are desperate to share those promises and Jesus' life-changing love with more people. And our heart is to bring Jesus all the glory and exalt Him above all.

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.
