Announcement from Pam and Dawn

1 Nov

Most of our readers think of humor when they think of our book, LOL with God, but there’s a lot of hope in the book, too!

Pam has already ministered in many kinds of places where she offers help and hope to women; and for some time, the Lord has burdened me (Dawn) with a desire to reach women in prisons. But God has never given me the opportunity to go through those prison doors.

I’ve been praying for a way to make a difference with our book, LOL with God: Devotional Messages of Hope and Woman in PrisonHumor for Women. This summer, the Lord allowed me to speak with two different women about the possibility of placing our book in the hands of women in prison or with wives of inmates.

Right after Thanksgiving, Pam and I will present a special FUNdraising event of “Humor, Heart, and Hope.” Both Pam and I will speak, and there will be some fun interludes, but the “heart” of this event is to raise funds to purchase books for two ministries ~ one local and one national ~ that have prison ministry outreaches.

The event ~ sponsored by Rock Church Prison Ministry and Blended Step Families ~ will be held from 7-8:30pm on Monday, November 28, at The Rock Church in San Diego (Room 232).

Admission is $5, and we will also take an offering to benefit those impacted by the prison The Bible in Prisonministries of the Rock Church and also Speak Up for Hope.

The Word of God makes a difference behind bars … and LOL with God is an ice-breaker to get women into the Word who might never open a Bible otherwise.

Only in Christ will these women find the freedom, peace, hope, and joy that their souls seek.

Please PRAY for this event, and for Pam and me. But we also hope you will consider JOINING US if you live in San Diego County.

This is a wonderful way to express some post-Thanksgiving Day gratitude to God for how He has given YOU hope in Christ! Help us bring hope and joy to women who need it ~ just like you!

We’d Like Your Help!

12 Aug

No humor today … but something sweet we wanted to share, instead.

Michelle Gewin, a doctor’s wife in Birmingham, Georgia, emailed these kinds words about our book, LOL with God:

Your book is real, AUTHENTIC... and does point me to the Lord. You can smell it in the covers that this is genuine, walked-out truth, and light ~ HAPPY!

“The women who will receive the books greatly appreciate value, and they need this.”

Michelle, who already had two books and gave away one to a woman taking a long flight home to Kyrgyzstan, “for reading on the plane,” just bought six more books to share with some influential women who live in her area.

Michelle and I (Dawn) are talking about how to get the book to women in her city who desperately need hope.

I think the strength of this book is that it introduces women to the Word of God and some deeper issues in a light, winsome way. (It’s also perfect for busy moms of any age who want a quick lift during their hectic days.) Our prayer is that women will read and apply the scriptures as well as the practical truth they find in each devotional.

Pam and I would love to hear from you.

And there are two ways you can help:

  • Can you think of creative ways to get LOL with God to women in your area who need it the most?
  • Pray with us that God will help us find ways to make a difference in women’s lives by sharing LOL with God with them.

Will you do that?  We’d love to hear from you!

Where R U LOL-ing?

LOL with God - Atlanta

Pam & Dawn "LOL with God" high over Atlanta at sunset.

Where are you LOL-ing with God?

One day a man took the train from Paris to Frankfurt. When he got in, he said to the ticket man:

“Sir, I really need you to do me a favor. I have to get off  this train in Mannheim, but I’m very tired, and it is for sure that I will fall asleep. So, what I want you to do is wake me up in Mannheim, because I have to close some business there, and it is very important to me.

“Here, you have 100 francs for the favor. I warn you sometimes when people wake me up, I get really violent, but no matter what I do or say, you’ve got to get me out of this train in Mannheim. Is that clear?”

So the ticket man agreed and took the 100 francs. Later, as the man had said, he fell asleep; and when he woke up he realized that he was in Frankfurt. He was so mad at the ticket man that he ran over and started yelling at him.

“Are you stupid or something?” he said. “I paid you 100 francs so that you would wake me up in Mannheim, and you didn’t, so I want my money back!”

While the man was yelling at the ticket man, two other guys who were also in the train were looking at them and couldn’t help commenting.

Man 1: “Look at this guy! He is mad!”

Man 2: “Yeah! He’s almost as mad as the guy they made get out of the train in Mannheim.”[i]

Travel can be grueling, but vacationing can also be restful, especially if you are LOL-ing with God no matter where you find yourself. This summer, many of us have been reading LOL with God, and we have just about 30 or so days left and you may have a day or two of R and R on the schedule. Send us a picture of the LOL with God book in the location you are reading it.

I’m including a few photos below of places where I (Pam) have had quiet times this summer: 

LOL with God - Alaska

A Meadow in Alaska

I also asked my Facebook friends to share some of their favorite places to LOL with God, and many of them were not far and exotic places rather their favorite chair, their own backyard, or in bed as the sun rose. Seewe can LOL with God any place, because it is communing with a friend.

In my book, Woman of Confidence, I share the meaning of the word “dwell” from Psalm 37:3-4: Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

“Dwell” is to abide safely and securely in the land of promise.

LOL with God - New Mexico

At a Marriage Conference

The Bible is full of promises, and if you dwell there you will feel the safety and security you long for. To me, to dwell is the feeling I get after a 22-hour flight across the ocean back home to my own bed … ahhhhhhh… precious, safe, secure, comfy rest. It’s the kind of rest God gives when you dwell – and LOL with Him.

LOL with God - Singapore

Returning from Singapore

So, email us a picture of where you are LOLing with God—at home or on vacation. E-mail to:  info@Love-wise.com or post it your Facebook page and @Pam Farrel and @Dawn Marie Wilson and we’ll see it on our page!

I (Pam) will give to TWO WINNERS (for the “Best LOL away from home” and “Best LOL at home”) a copy of Woman of Confidence, so you can gain even more skills at abiding, resting, and dwelling with God. (NOTE: Photos must be posted by midnight September 1st.)

If you can’t wait and want to begin your passage of dwelling confidently, or you’d like your small group or a “fine-tuning friend”/accountability partner to journey through Woman of Confidence, order at www.Love-wise.com. (Use the code “friend2” for discount.)

Happy LOLing!
