BETH MOORE AND ... GARAGE SALE GAL GOODIE GIVE AWAY :) :)




Where to start.. Beth Moore is truly amazing. Her love for God is something for me to strive for. Friday evening started with the singing with the worship team, lead by Travis Cottrell. This was the first time I've heard him and ended up buying one of his CD's. Nothing like good music :) Then Beth came and her theme for the weekend was "Between a Rock and a Hard Place." Most of the lesson was from Hebrews 12. There were other verses from other books. These are some of her words that are still going around in my mind...guess the Lord's talking to me...What do you do when you are stuck between a rock and a hard place..Don't lose heart over it, humble myself and receive it and don't lose sight of the purpose of "it" , make a change. It's hard to write down and share with you about the event. So, I would recommend that you go for yourself . She doesn't have the same study at each event. She asks God, what should she talk to these women about and God gives me the answer. There were a few men there too. That's great :) The event ended with singing on Saturday and that was moving for me. Tears :) :) :) Now comes the hard part, to DO IT.

*********GIVE AWAY ************


On the 24th , it will be the 1 month birthday since I started blogging. So I thought a little give away would be fun. Nothing fancy, just a few goodies that I think you will like. So here they are:


HAND MADE CARDS FROM ME, THYMES BODY & LOTION WHICH IS MADE HERE IN MN, VERBENA CANDLE, HANKIES(one of my favorite things) PRETTY FLOWER NAPKINS, SACHET, BLUE BIRD, AND SOME YUMMY CHOCOLATE AND MAYBE A COUPLE OTHER GOODIES. YOU JUST NEED TO LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS BLOG. Kailee will help draw the winner. Thanks for visiting me and for entering the give away. More later. Warmly, Deb

Thank you for telling about your giveaway. I love it.

I'll add a link on my blog for you. I hate to do it when I love the giveaway as I like to keep them a secret and hope no one else signs up...but the right thing to do is share so I will.

It sounds like you had a lovely time at church. I love when I find a new singer I like and they have a CD I can buy.

Hugs,
Joanne

bookworm said...

Hi Deb (that's my sister's name). Sounds like you really enjoyed Beth Moore, she is a wonderful speaker, isn't she? Glad you had a chance to hear her. Your giveaway looks awesome, too, thanks for offering it.

Nancy said...

As I've sat here, on "hold" on the phone in my office, I've been blog surfing - leaping from one to links on another ... and came across yours. And I read along & find you talking about Beth Moore. I absolutely love that woman! She is ... astounding. There just aren't words for the gifts she shares with the world!
And then to read about your giveaway ... I'm thinking I'm going to have to put something like that together. It's such a fun, sharing thing to do.

rosechicfriends said...

Hi Deb...YOU GOT TO SEE BETH MOORE IN Person? I Know you were truely blessed. Doesn't she just have most wonderful/hysterically funny southern way about her? She just is so endearing to me! I'd love for you to read my Come to Jesus Wed, blog..it even mentions something about a Beth Moore study I did this past year.

I'd love to be entered into your giveaway, if its NOT to late!

Thanks...Blessings...Lorena
