Tag Archives: LOL with God

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!

Tough Mom Love

6 May

What did your mom teach you?

My Mother taught me about ANTICIPATION… “Just wait until your father gets home.”

My Mother taught me LOGIC... “If you fall out off that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the store with me.”

My Mother taught me HUMOR… “When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don’t come running to me.”

My mother taught me RELIGION. “You better pray that will come out of the carpet.”

My Mother taught me about JUSTICE… Some day you will have kids . . .

Being a mom is a blessed calling—and sometimes a tough one. Often we moms function on too Stressed Mommylittle sleep and too little in the checkbook. When a mom is under stress, she can sometimes look for ways to escape or numb the stress or pain: TV reality shows, drinking, pain killing medication, too much comfort food,  or we allow the stress to build until it erupts in anger onto our family. None of those options help lower stress, rather, they erode a mother’s life and will actually raise the stress and pain.

Good news!  God has a plan to help us moms out.  He can make us tougher than life and  stronger than whatever our kids might drag in the door (snake, bug or worse ~ a teenage bad attitude!)

Check out a few of the many promises God gives:

  • Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37)
  • But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 15:57)
  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Phil 4:13)
  • The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save . . .  (Zeph 3:17)

This summer, we are running an LOL with God book club so you can have a SONsational summer. Women from all around the world are buying and committing to read the LOL with God devotional from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Click here to order LOL with God devotional or to learn more details so you and your friends can join us. (Sign up for free “Splash of Hope” ~  daily, quick,  and fun encouragements and ideas to help you LOL all summer.)

As a reminder that being a mom might be tough, but God can help us become tougher than life, here is a humorous video called “Tha Muthahood” from Anita Renfroe (who is a regular comedian for both Women of Faith and Good Morning America). Her parody is not a theological statement, rather some comic relief on our road to becoming “One Tough Mother” (a book by Pam’s friend, Julie Barnhill).

Note from Dawn:  Leave a comment about how your mom showed you tough love, and I will randomly pick one person to receive a copy of  One Tough Mother.

Remember, our kids might be strong willed, but our God is stronger!
