Faithbuilder Friday

Ok, found another author I need to recommend to you: Francine Rivers. She has written quite a few, but the 2 series I have recently been working through deal with men and women of the Bible. The Sons of Encouragement Series takes a look at the lives of a Priest (Aaron), Prophet(Amos), Scribe (Silas), Warrior (Caleb) and Prince. Then there is the Lieage of Grace series- that looks at 5 women named in the lineage of Christ. These are awesome books...and a great way to make the Bible come alive.

Page Prompt

So, I have been spending time memorizing the Beatitudes. Figured after being a Christian for 20+ years, it might be time, lol. This is just a goldmine is Scripture. If you have never taken the time to memorize them, I highly recommend it! Anyway- your page prompt this week- scrap one of the Beatitudes--Mt5:3-11. Use it as a starting point, the journaling, whatever. Take it and run with it! Have fun!

I have recently started reading for enjoyment, again. I used to read voraciously as a teenager and young adult...but somehow I lost that over the years. Still not a bookworm, but I have been enjoying it. thought I would recommend a series to you: AD Chronicles, by the Thoene's. This is one of my favorite series of all time- and highly, highly recommended...I would love to make it required reading for all Christians. This takes the life of Christ- and makes it readable for the average person. They do not change history, and the research is impeccable. What they do is take the accounts from the points of view of others in the story- like the blind begger that Jesus healed, the centurion who pleaded for the healing of his servant, and the shepherds who witnessed the angels sing. Imagine delving into their thoughts and feelings! Very cool!!

Chime In...and HELP!

This time our Chime In question is meant to help me out. November's issue of SNR deals with Christmas and holiday projects...fun, huh? I love Christmas!!

I actually want you guys to write my column for this issue. I want to compile a column filled with reader's ideas on how to celebrate the holiday. So your question this week: How does your family keep Christ in Christmas? Do you have any special traditions? Have you made any special items to help with this? Let's hear it... your idea might even end up published in November's issue!!

PS- you just have to know the call for next month is going to be Christmas related, right? Here's you 'sneak peek': I will be looking for your Christmas related layouts, cards and altered projects that keep Christ in Christmas. Get your thinking caps on!
