**Feb. 27th The Reveal Cards launch (and I'm looking for a inviting you to be part of the team to help get the word out). In case you are not sure what The Reveal Cards are, they are a multi-purpose deck of 48 square picture cards to be used for evangelism and discipleship. They help you get into spiritual conversations and can also be used in small groups and discipleship times. They have been tested and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. People love using pictures to share their thoughts about life. Learn more about it here.
Join the launch team. It's super easy and I can give you a discount for helping! Just click this link and scroll down a little and click the red button(s) that say, Support with Facebook (or Twitter or Tumblr) and that's it. Then on Feb. 27th when The Reveal Cards launch it will automatically post about it for you. It will literally take you maybe one minute and would make an impact. What do you say? Can you pop on over? Shoot me an email afterward and I'll give you a discount code.
**God's Attributes Mosaic. On the Missional Women site we have a couple free downloadable/printable ministry events called the Prayer Mosaic and Discipleship Mosaic. The prayer mosaic is 8 stations that are set up with different things to pray for at each station. It is requested to do again and again because of how powerful the time is of connecting with the Lord. The discipleship mosaic is similar that it has 8 tables, but rather than being primarily a time of praying and connecting with the Lord personally, it is a time of connecting with a small group of people. The groups stay together and move to the next table station after having a theme they discussed with interaction at each station. Each of the topics are foundational topics that make for a strong multiplying disciple.
So the God's Attributes is in the works and will be available within the next couple months. It will be a combination of the Prayer Mosaic and Discipleship Mosaic. As in it will be a personal prayer experience yet with foundational truths that build people into stronger disciples.

Full: Food, Jesus, and the Battle for Satisfaction by my friend Asheritah Ciuciu, a writer and speaker who helps women find joy in Jesus in the midst of an overwhelming life. She and her husband, Flaviu, grew up in Romania but now raise their spunky children in northeast Ohio. She blogs at www.OneThingAlone.com.

Asheritah shares honestly about her own battles with food and reveals the path to freedom. You'll discover the joy of living free from food fixation so you can experience deeper satisfaction in Christ, gain a renewed sense of purpose, and yes, even enjoy good good (without regret).
