Faith Filled Friday
So I'm an introvert. I love people but being around people all the time drains me, while being alone recharges me. After have almost 20 over for Christmas and then spending the next week with 1,500 students I felt a little bit like someone had put a dust buster up to my heart and sucked all the life out of me. In fact, I'm pretty sure I didn't talk to anyone at church the following Sunday. Maybe you would have mistaken me as a zombie. ;)
Well, the Lord in His grace provided in His perfect timing three days to getaway into the mountains to write and plan. Totally life giving to me! Three other girls on staff (Angi, Hope and Natalie) went with me to a missionary condo we got to stay at for free.
Now, after eating way too much cereal and having hours on end to devote to some things the Lord has set before me, I feel totally refreshed and so excited for what's coming! The top pictures are some clues, but I'll be announcing something super duper exciting in a couple weeks.
Seriously, I. can't. wait. to. tell. you!
Well, enough about me.
I was thinking of how we could be a blessing to you this week and a couple things came to mind.
1. If you're thinking about making a book list for 2014 and are looking for some good books, here is the books we LOVE and would be an inspiration in your walk with God. Basically most of them are my VERY FAVORITE books.
2. We also have a bunch of free printables for you. Things like: 70 Things to pray from Scripture, Things to Pray for Unbelievers, Time with the Lord Worksheet & Bookmark, Preparing your Testimony, 25 Missional Activities for Kids, Verse of the Day Monthly Prayer List and a lot more. Hope these are a blessing to you!
Have a good week friends.

My daughter-in-law is an introvert and my son is more extroverted. I am an extrovert with introvert tendencies I think, lol! Because I need to recharge and unwind when I come home after being with lots of people! Thanks for hosting today and glad you had a good time!

I'm an introvert, too, so I can relate to your experience. The book list is awesome! I want every one. Maybe a 2014 commitment to go through them? The only one I've read is Radical by David Platt and that one changed my life! I am so moved by his preaching.

Radical is sooo good. I just love when people give it to you straight. Radical, It's Not About Me, The Unexpected Adventure and The Finishers are my top 4. If you liked Radical, I'm pretty sure you'd like these. ❤️
