Ok, so I just LOVE when God shows off and He uses a bunch of people together to pull things off that just looked impossible before. Sigh... I just really love that.
So want to hear what happened and how it affects you?
Ok. So, there's been two things in the dream stage. They both seemed like they would glorify God and build His kingdom so I just took one step at a time and waited to see what He would do. The first thing was the Missional Women app. The Lord led a couple incredible ladies to be part of it. So, a Missional Women app is in the works and will be coming to you FREE soon!! Squeal.
The second thing is something called The Connect Cards. www.TheConnectCards.com (Ok,but this isn't launched yet so shhhhh. And if you'd like to be part of the launch team shoot me an email.) It is a deck of cards that accompany any Bible study (or really any other ministry event).
Here's a sneak peek of what they look like:
There are 3 sections each with different things to do/discuss as a group. There is the prayer section (orange) where there are different things to pray for. There is a connect/fellowship section (green) where there are different questions to discuss. And there is a Great Commission training section (blue).
If you were to use these in a Bible study you could do it a variety of ways. For example you could pick one card from the prayer section, one from the fellowship section and one from the training section. Or you could just do the fellowship cards (using one a week) or just the training cards etc. Or you could rotate and do a different section each week. Anyway, they are in the final stages right now and will be released soon.
So here's the super awesome, God showing off part. Well to make these cards it costs money right. But at the same time the cards are ready to be ordered one of my books (Reach; How to Use your Social Media Influence for the Glory of God co-authored with Angi Pratt) book got accepted to be part of something called The Christian Living Ultimate Bundle. Basically it is a bunch of neat believers collaborating to make their books available for a super great price. It's a total win-win-win. There's over $1,100 worth of ebooks and bonuses at 96% off. So for you to buy a Christian Living library of 84 ebooks (from authors like Spurgeon, Mueller, Tozer, Wesley, EM Bounds, Ray Comfort, Johnathan Edwards, DL Moody, Kristen Welch, Sarah Mae and a ton more) you would pay $34.95. And also, since my book is part of the bundle I'll get a lot of the commission and there's a super awesome way God provides to get the connect cards made!
I was trying to tell my husband how awesome and exciting this bundle and whole situation is (because it seriously blows my mind!) but I just couldn't explain it right... lol. Ya know when you're so excited about something and you try to explain and you get a blank stare. Well, that's what happened. So there's just no way I'm going to be able to explain it to you through typed words. So to understand my excitement, will you check out the bundle to see how awesome it is? Because I just can't believe all the awesome-ness that's there. There's excellent books about marriage, parenting, finance, devotional, kids, classics, reaching the lost, novels etc.
And how awesome would it be to not only have your own personal Christian Living Library, but to gift one to someone else too. Out of 84 books, surely there's a handful that would be a perfect fit for friends in your life. (And just getting the value out of 4 books would be enough to break even). So it's an incredible deal for you and for me and for all the people who will get trained more in the Great Commission through the connect cards and for all the authors. Oh God is just awesome at orchestrating things! So if you're going to get one, use the link below. And just a heads up it's only available till Monday.
Here's a link to the bundle.
We exist to glorify God, to display His heart and character. And I just love how we are all uniquely built to do that. So every Friday I want to give you, uniquely designed by God, an opportunity to link up your thoughts on God, art, baking, photography, parenting, marriage, homeschooling, writing or blogging and more if they tie into or display the Lord somehow.
So go ahead and link up below by clicking the link below and following the prompts.
Please just let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your post (or somewhere on your side bar) or put my button code (found below and on the side bar) so they can find these other great people glorifying God and we can continue to grow as a community. Thanks!
