I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God
so that you may know that you have eternal life. [1 John 5:13]

Growing, Living and Learning

September is National Coupon Month! Imagine my excitement at discovering this, considering it is also my birthday month AND in light of my newest undertaking as the Richmond Frugal Family Examiner!

In my last post I shared about how I have been striving. Having shared it, and my poem/prayer, I felt some easing of my sense of laboring so hard. God is so very good and He has introduced still more Christian women entrepreneurs and writers into my life, even in just this week and they have encouraged and uplifted me!

I have also had the joy of helping several others with issues in their "non-bloggy", non-writing lives and that is even more a blessing - to be a blessing to another. That's really what life is about.

This week I am working on submissions to several contests and the latest edition of my 2X/month God's Wonder Woman column at Take Root and Write is live. I hope you'll take a few minutes to read part 2 of The Seven Deadly Sins. God continues to reveal to me so much about Himself and His love as I research this topic.

I am learning to view my sin not as something that will prevent me from going to heaven, but rather as a means of growing in grace toward others in my life, myself, and the world at large. I've got a long way to go, but I am learning to view life through a new lens and it is pretty incredible!

Since I'm a bit ahead in posts for Richmond Frugal Family, I'm going to try to finalize two author interviews I've agreed to host here in the near future. Stay tuned! You'll want to know about these two writers!

It's so great that she does all the research and lists everything in one place - including her advice on whether or not it is a good opportunity. Anne also publishes great tips for writers at About Freelance Writing.

What are you writing about this week?

Blessings on your journey

Praying for the Lord to continue guiding you, protecting you as you minister to others, to us and others who are not blogging. Thank you for all the info's you always share, all those great tips but much more the spiritual info that matters the most. Blessings to you sister.

I am just getting disciplined enough to post and comment all the people I am following. It is the writing part that sometimes becomes challenging in not knowing what to write, but I developed a schedule of sorts and I keep a notebook and pen with me just in case God needs me to take notes!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Thanks ladies, for always leaving me an encouraging word. It means a great deal.

I get so busy, I don't have make the time to "make the rounds" as I once did. Kat, I just this evening started working on a schedule of sorts so I could fit in visiting all my bloggy friends:-)

I love your view of your sins. I see my setbacks in life as a way to have more grace toward others and as a way to minister to others.

Blessings, Leslie
