Coming Soon: It’s No Secret

Are you ready?  It’s about time to begin our next Online Bible Study!  I can’t wait!

For those of you concerned you won’t have your book in time, go to this link and read the full introduction and all of chapter 1 with study questions onlinehttp://www.scribd.com/doc/34992268/It-s-No-Secret-By-Rachel-Olsen-Chapter-One

For those interested in the digital version of It’s No Secret, it’s available as an e-book on Amazon – just click on the “Kindle version” on the book’s page.  That’ll let you can download it to your Amazon Kindle reader. Or, if you don’t have a Kindle reader you can download – for free – “Amazon for PC” from the site. That allows you to download their ebooks to your computer.  Then you can buy the It’s No Secret ebook and get it on your computer.  It’s super easy to do. I am not aware of it being available as an ebook for the Nook or other e-readers.

Now, a message from me to you:

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Make sure to come back on Sunday when we officially kick off our new study!

The Party Has a Winner :)

Thank you SO MUCH to all who shared and commented on my blog yesterday.  I read every single comment!

For those of you who are still hurting over a previous loss, I’m sorry for your loss and your pain. I understand. I want to encourage all of us in that position to mourn and take the time necessary to grieve, but also don’t ever stop living. Living life to the full was intended for all of us.  I love you and I’m praying for you.

For those encouraged to live life to full no matter what your circumstances (hopefully that’s all of us!), well good!  It was my hope when writing “I’ll See You At The Party” to use Little Granny’s words to bring you hope about where you are going and inspiration to live life fully today.

Your words touched my heart.  Selecting a winner today was easy. Only because it was random. I used a random number generator to pick the comment of the winner. I could have never selected otherwise.  I wanted you ALL to win and I wish I was in the position to give more books away.  I think total between me and Rachel Olsen, we’ve given away a total of 6.  If you did not win, I hope you will still consider purchasing the book and joining the Bible study.  Just give me a call at the Proverbs 31 Office. The toll free number is 877-731-4663 and I’ll be happy to set you up with the book.  We need to get them mailed ASAP since the study officially begins this Sunday, March 27th.

Ok, enough talk.  Our winner today is:  tamerriell.  So if that’s you, email me at Melissa@MelissaTaylor.org with your address and I’ll get that book in the mail to you today!  Congratulations!

Have a blessed day today y’all!  Remember Jesus’ Words, “The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come so they may have life and have it to the full.”  So, don’t allow the thief or anything else to steal your joy today. You were made to live life!

Love and Blessings,

Come Join the Party!

Hi! I’m glad you stopped by my blog today.

Today I am giving away a FABULOUS, GOD FILLED, SCRIPTURE SATURATED book that just happens to be my next Online Bible Study! I can hardly contain myself I’m so excited!

Next week, March 27th, the next online study on my blog begins. I would love to have you join me. I’m so excited that I’m giving away an autographed copy of the book we are studying, It’s No Secret, Divine Secrets Every Woman Should Know by Rachel Olsen.

Just leave a comment here today and you will be entered to win.  I’ll announce the winner Wednesday morning, March 23rd.

If you read today’s Proverbs 31 Devotion, then you know that Little Granny lived her life to the fullest here on earth and was excited about where she was going from here.  Little Granny lived her 92 years on this earth with purpose. She loved God and loved His Word. His Word protected her, guided her, comforted her, strengthened her, encouraged her,  and provided for her every need. She depended on God and His Word in her daily life so that the “thief” would not and could not steal, kill, or destroy her living life to the fullest.  That’s what It’s No Secret is all about.

If you are interested in joining a party right here on my blog, sign up for my online Bible study.  Details can be found here.  If you are interested sign up quick and order the book because the study starts in just a week!  I would love to study with you!

Also, this week is the one year anniversary of my own mother’s death. Our entire family misses her laughter, loyalty, and love on this earth. This will be a hard week for us yet also a week of sweet reflection. We know where she is today and celebrate that. Next Sunday night we are having some sweet family time recalling a few great “MaMaw Memories” with the Pepperidge Farm Apple Turnovers (actually called puff pastries I think) with vanilla ice cream that she loved.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you have a wonderful day!  And don’t forget, if you are looking for a Bible study group and don’t have one, I’d love for you to join mine! The Online Bible Study begins March 27th.

Love and Blessings to you all.

 

***A super big shout out to all my new friends from the Women’s Wellness Weekend at Camp Harrison! I had a blast with y’all.  Bless your hearts and Beware of Pirates!  And oh yea, You are Beautiful <3
