The Art of Giving - A Book

                    One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to live Fully Right Where You Are 
                   By Ann Voskamp      
There is nothing like the gift of a newly released book! Well wrapped of course. Cause this Christmas I'm banN the ever popular gift bag on this blog and under our tree!

A creativity confession in early 2009 in which I explained to a potential client my creative process for logo creation prompted this Sunday School friend to declare the title of my first book ... Learning to Here the Voice of God and I thought our meeting was about his website. Later, after the meeting, when I approached our FATHER in reference to an image for this logo ... I received an instant answer and prayed myself right out of this particular freelance gig ... my reply from HIM ... My word is sufficient.

So, this Sunday evening has been busy and I have some links to share with you ...

A Holy Experience

Listening 2 God

Prayer Plain & Simple

God Speaks Today

Place for Grace

One Website stated ... "God is alive and moving throughout the world calling us to a life of creativity, risk and sacrifice. Come learn how to lose your life so that you can find it for real." What are you called to risk and sacrifice to create for HIS glory?


  1. last week I anonymously gave a co-worker $160 and several bags of food. It was a stretch for me and didn't tell my husband. The next day I got a check in the mail for $95, refund from mortgage company. My husband travels for his job and had time to kill that day. He stopped in a casino and won $185. In the end my gifts didn't cost me a thing, God returned it plus some. Gift, love, compassion for others are all good. But for me the last few months have been about showing people mercy. Since I started my life feels like I am holding on to a rocket. So many wonderful things have happened.
    I count your blog as one of the blessings.
    God Bless,

I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
