Hello dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! First, before I do anything else, I want to wish my incredible husband a happy anniversary! Today we celebrate 13 years of marriage, and it’s excited to say that I’m so much more in love with him now than I was when we first married. God graciously gave me far more than I could ever deserve the day He allowed me to meet this wonderful man!
Today is Friday, and that means I’ll be going live this afternoon on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube. Technology is so fun…sometimes…ok just when it actually works the way it’s supposed to. Hopefully, that will be today’s experience. I’m excited about today’s live event because I have some exciting news about next week! Brook Bartz first every podcast episode will be dropping, Lord willing, on Wednesday! Keep an eye out for it, or subscribe to her YouTube channel, her new podcast is going to be called Open Hearts. I’m also excited to share who won last weeks t-shirt giveaway. I love doing giveaways, it’s one of my favorite parts about having social media.
So, what’s coming up on Monday’s episode? Well, I am deeply disturbed by something a follower on Instagram sent me. It was regarding a movement called CDD, or Christian Domestic Discipline. Never heard of it? Neither had I. In fact, I thought it was satire. It is, unfortunately, not a joke, but a very unbiblical movement where husbands physically punish their wives when they sin. Obviously, I felt this needed some attention as I was made aware of this within the Reformed circles…and of course found out that it was being promoted by certain Duggar children. Monday is going to be a difficult episode, and I would greatly appreciate your prayers.
What about some recommendations? Glad you asked, let’s cheer up the mood a bit shall we? These masks are hilarious! I’ll be honest, I was hoping not to need a mask any longer, but for just $15 you can wear something that might actually make you smile. You know, instead of the dread we all feel when we put the mask on and pretend not to be hyperventilating as we walk through Walmart. Just me? Personally, if we all have to wear the masks, couldn’t we at least get these mega chain stores to crank the AC a bit? I also want to recommend the podcast Women’s Hope, a podcast of The Master’s University. Brooke Bartz first pointed it out to me, and it’s been such a blessing! If you’re looking for a podcast with some theologically sound ladies, this is a great choice. My last recommendation is Justin Peter’s new series on misinterpreted Scriptures, hilariously titled Inigo Montoya Series. I’m very excited about this, JP has been doing a fantastic job creating entertaining and edifying content on YouTube!
Blogger Highlight: I’d like to continue highlighting a blogger on each MEGA list and this week I wanted to point everyone to my dear brother-in-Christ Pastor Jimmy, writer of the Veritas Domain blog. This brother does such a great job daily writing Biblically sound content, informing us on all types of issues, growing our knowledge in Scripture, and graciously refuting falsehood.
Prayer Requests: Lauren Bronner, writer of the Redeemed Mama Saved By Grace blog and author of Freedom from Anxiety, has fallen very ill. Please join me in praying for her, and her sweet family. As always, beloved brethren, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved.
