For several months now, the Lord has been prompting me to expand this ministry. I am so excited (and somewhat nervous) about what He has in store. It is my heart’s desire to use this website to be a gathering place for women who are passionate about marriage and desire to be better wives. Community is so important in our quest to be the Proverbs 31 woman! That is why I am excited to share with you some of the changes I’ve been making!
As you may have noticed, my blog has been redesigned and merged with my book’s website so that both can be found in one location. I am very excited for the new look and functionality!! My hope is that this website will be a great resource for you as you strive to be an excellent wife. As you read my blog, please leave a comment as I love hearing from you! In addition to my posts, this web site also features information about my book, daily Scripture-based prayers, and a recommended reading list. Time is precious and so I pray that you will consider everything available on my blog to be a blessing and worthy of your time!
I have added the option for you to receive my blog posts via e-mail. Personally, this is how I read blogs! I don’t have the time to sit at the computer and visit each of my favorite web sites, so I opt to have their posts sent directly to my inbox. Since this is my favorite way to read blogs, I decided to add it to mine. If you would like to sign up for this option, please enter your e-mail address in the box which says “Subscribe.”
I am almost giddy over this addition to the ministry. Once a month I will be sending out a newsletter that will contain interviews, more personal posts, wife tips (covering a number of topics ranging from house cleaning to intimacy), and a section for prayer requests. I am extremely excited for the prayer request column!! What a privilege it will be to pray for each other, our husbands, and our marriages. You can submit your requests to me via the website and I will place them into the newsletter using whichever privacy setting you desire: anonymous, (where you will be referred to as “one reader”) or slightly personal (using your first name or first initial). This special newsletter will be delivered straight to your inbox. It will not be published online. To join this specific community, enter your e-mail address into the box which reads “Newsletter.” This is different from the feedburner!!! If you want to subscribe to both – you will need to enter in your e-mail address twice.
As I prayed more about this ministry, the Lord made it clear that I was lacking a team. I am still in the process of finalizing the members, but they will be a huge blessing to us all. They will make sure that all content is Biblically sound, they will occasionally guest post, and they will serve as prayer warriors for incoming requests. Once the team is settled, I will be sure to introduce them all to you!
During this launch week, I am excited to announce a giveaway. If you subscribe to both the feedburner and the newsletter this week (March 12th-March 19th, 2013!) you will receive a free pdf copy of For the Love of Our Husbands! (If you are already a blog subscriber, then all you have to do is join the newsletter mailing list to be sent your free book.) Also, as long as you remain on both mailing lists, you will be eligible for a discount whenever you order a hard copy of For the Love of Our Husbands (offer is only available when buying books via this form).
Again, I am so excited for the future! I can’t wait to learn from you and connect with you on a more personal level!! Please get involved today by leaving a comment and joining our mailing lists!
