Summer at our house means hummingbirds, gardens and lots of work! While my job primarily keeps me busy in the kitchen prepping vegetables for freezing and preserving, my husband works hard in the garden with occasional help.
Summer also means family reunions, fun in the pool and special fun get-togethers and cook-outs. This year, however, summer also means my newest devotional, Seasons of Refreshing: Summer, is now available (click here).
While working at my desk, I’m often distracted by hummingbirds winging their flight to and from the feeder outside my window. They are the most amazing little creatures…so delicate, colorful and FAST! Intricately fashioned by the Master’s creative hand, one can’t help but be drawn to contemplate their uniqueness.
When we began considering the cover for my new book, it seemed natural to use a hummingbird as the focal point. Fascinating. Graceful. Curious. Extraordinary. A tiny glimpse of the matchless grace of the God we serve so passionately.
That’s what Seasons of Refreshing Summer Edition is all about…learning more about the God we serve so passionately! It includes some personal stories from mission outreaches, some family stories, and a lot of opportunities to examine our own hearts to be sure we remain in right standing with the Lord. With many topics included, you’ll find yourself identifying with some of my own personal struggles and even learn how not to handle them! My goal is always to be as transparent as possible while using my shortcomings to help others walk in victory.
We’re so excited to announce some changes in this edition. This season, in response to many requests, we have opted to do a digital publication and revisit the need for a paperback copy at a later date. This will enable readers worldwide to access the daily devotions from a computer, tablet and/or smart phone. And, the Summer downloadable edition is only $9.99 with no charges for shipping and no waiting for delivery! It doesn’t get much better than that!
I apologize for the delay in getting this announcement out to you. The ministry office has been so incredibly busy which pushed out the availability of the Summer edition until just now. The good news, however, is that it is ready for you before the start date of June 21st.
My prayer is that you will find something that brings encouragement, that challenges, and that reassures you that God is on your side, working on your behalf and drawing you closer with each passing day.
God bless you, my friend! Let me know if I can answer any questions by using the contact link at the top of the page.
