I’m about to leave to help our daughter and son-in-law take their 2-month-old twins back to Jamaica where they are missionaries at the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf. I’ll be gone for 3 weeks, and my primary job will be to help them move and get settled into a better-suited home for their new family of four at the Jamaica Deaf Village in Mandeville where they’ve lived for the past 3 years. (Nope, nowhere near the ocean. And not even near any AC!)
What this means for my Worship and the Word blog is this: I won’t be writing any new posts in April. In fact, I probably won’t have my computer for most of my time away. I need to be as wholly present there as I possibly can be, so I can be the very best mom and Memaw for them. I also want to soak in as much of our new cuddly bundles before I have to leave them behind.
But this is good news for you! Most of my subscribers haven’t been around for the duration of this blog, so you’ve missed out on a lot of stuff! It’s catch-up time! So please take the opportunity over the next several weeks to get more familiar with my blog site, and check out the posts you’ve missed out on.
In fact, I’ll give you some suggestions for some places to start. Here are some older posts that I think most of you might have missed and would enjoy. (Or just go digging through the archives!)
• If I ever needed You…
• Why the Church Still Needs NEW Songs
• What If Worship Is Just A Big Struggle?
• The Wonder of God’s Breath in You!
• “Give Me what you have”
• Go ORGANIC – with your WORSHIP!
• Who do you say that I am?
• God’s Promise for the Languishing Soul
• What We Miss When We Don’t Stop
• Why Should I Know His Name?
Or look over all of the past 5-Day Worship Challenges to see what you may want to try this month to further develop your personal time of worship.
I also want to mention that the award that my book, Worship and the Word, won from Worship Leader Magazine as one of the Best of the Best of 2014 has led to a wonderful partnership with them. My book (and blog) isn’t definitely not just for worship leaders at all. But worship leaders are always looking for tools to help their teams and congregations to grow in their biblical understanding of worship. And to this end, Worship Leader Magazine is offering a free eBook of my book to all 20,000 of their subscribers – and any other of their additional 100,000 readership who want to subscribe!
I am blown away by this opportunity to get my book into the hands of others who are passionate about helping people worship our amazing God! This is nothing I sought after at all, but something that God has done in answer to my prayers for Him to expand the reach and influence of my book – for His glory. I am so very humbled by all of this. And very excited to see what He might do next!
So check with your church’s worship leader to see if he’s connected with Worship Leader Magazine and has gotten his free eBook of Worship and the Word! If he’s not, send him/her here to my blog to check it out!
Thanks so much for your support and encouragement. I look forward to connecting with you again very soon!
Many blessings as we celebrate our risen Savior!
