I wanted to share about a book that I’ve been reading the past week or so. It is called The Invitation by Greg Sidders. As I have shared before, my focus for this year is “Simplify” and “Love “. Well, this book fits very nicely under the focus of “Love”. Jesus said that others will know we are His disciples by our love. I have been challenged to look at my own life and evaluate the extent that I love others…my husband, my children, and Jesus Christ Himself. Mr. Sidders looks at Jesus’ commands to love and brings that into our everyday lives. Often times we agree that we will “deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow Him” but fail to apply this in our lives each day…moment by moment.
I have not completed this book yet – probably about 2/3 done – but I can’t recommend it enough!
The Cursive eBook…
Thanks to each of you who took the time to email me or leave comments about which font you would like me to start with in my cursive ebook series. It looks like I will begin with the A-Beka font first! I’ve been working hard to get this ebook completed so that you can have it before the summer is over. I actually am hoping to have it available for sale in a couple weeks, so watch for a post announcing it!
Once I complete the A-Beka version, I will be working on adding other fonts as well (Zaner Bloser, D’Nealian, Bob Jones, and Getty Dubay). I’m not sure on the timetable in completing these yet, but I will definitely post updates here on my blog as I get them done!
The Intentional Planner Updates…
It’s that time of year again for me to begin updating all the Intentional Planner calendars and forms for the 2013 year! For those of you with memberships, I will have all the new calendars and forms added by the end of June. I am excited about adding some new forms, developing the “Budget” section, and more! I will post updates here on my blog (as well as send out notices to the Intentional Planner Updates list) when all these updates are complete. Watch for those details coming next month!
May each of you have a blessed weekend. Take the time to let your Mother know how very special she is!
