Courage and the Winners Are...

Hello Everyone,

I hope you found the Courage series inspiring and that something in the past two weeks moved you to fight the battles for Christ.

I find it interesting in that as Dineen and I wrote about this very subject, God wanted us to "live" it first hand. Earlier in the week I posted on our Facebook page that Dineen and been in a car accident in Texas. Let me tell you that it was scary but they are all fine and now headed home to California. Woo Hoo.

For me it was last Monday. My husband and I shared a significant exchange about faith and marriage. My friends, I had to face some fears and I did. But the outcome of facing those fears was oh so worth it, as my husband stepped into a new place in our marriage.

Now I'm still waiting and praying to see where all of this is leading. I'm asking God to show me my part or what I think is actually NOT my part (I need to get out of the way) and when this adventure is mature the Lord will allow me to share it with you.

Let me just say this, my husband stepped way out of his comfort zone to show me love. NEVER, I mean never, in our 20 years of marriage has this change happened which I have greatly desired. Okay, that's enough for now but I'm so glad I mustered the courage to ask.

And now for the winners of our drawing:

A few days back a reader left us a comment. I was deeply moved by her questions and plan to work through some of them on Monday.

Stop in again tomorrow for another giveaway. Tomorrow is a BIG day and we want to celebrate.

We love all of you who are living to honor Jesus and praying for your unbelieving spouse. We count it a great privilege to walk this road with you toward heaven.

Audacious hugs, Lynn

Facebook Ruins Marriage

Facebook ruins marriage.

I’m sure you saw in the news a few weeks ago a Pastor in New Jersey gained national attention when he told his staff to close their Facbook accounts.

The gist of this requirement was his experience that in his marital counseling efforts, many marriages ended because of Facebook. A married spouse would find an old flame online, they began to chat and then ultimately began an affair.

Well this incident with the pastor opened up some fascinating and interesting conversation around our house, with my teen-daughter, my husband and a few of my friends.

So my question; Is Facebook a danger to marriages? Should we close down our account? Now don’t be shy, add your voice because I can tell you, this is a very real issue. We received many Google search hits on an article I wrote about this very issue a year ago.

So, what say you?

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts. Hugs, Lynn

Thanksgiving Week

Today I am on my way to Colorado to spend the week with my mom and sister's family. Look for my travel updates, the fun stories I uncover along the way and the grace of God I see in lives of others on Twitter and Facebook. And because Dineen's mother is visiting this week, we think we would like to shake things up a bit and depart from our regular posting schedule.

We may post here three or four times a day about giving thanks or sharing thanks or perhaps, we will remain quiet.

However we both agree that we truly have heart's and lives that are abundant and filled with the gifts of God. We are thankful and give the Lord, Almighty all honor and glory for the great things He has done and provided in the last 12 months.

We also know that so many of you also feel the same way. So we are asking you to honor the Lord with us and share what you are thankful for. It can be for things like your home, or a fuzzy blanket, the baptism of one of your children. Perhaps you glimpsed God or came to understand Him in a new and powerful way. 

You give God glory when you praise Him. Praise Him this season and watch Him show up. We will be checking in and adding to this conversation of praise this week. Have a blessed Thanksgiving. 

If you are unequally yoked, take heart. Make Thanksgiving a joy and a day where your faith is present. Take the hands of those around your table and you say grace this Thursday.

Be blessed, Lynn and Dineen.
