Those of you who heard me on Midday Connection yesterday (Moody Radio) and wrote in asking about the free books: you’ve been entered in our drawing to win a copy of Simple Compassion.
I always love visting with Anita and Melinda, the amazing women behind the Midday Connection show. They are wise and kind, and always make me feel welcome at the studio.
I also mentioned briefly on the show that I will be partnering with Breakthrough Urban Ministries to put on a one-day Simple Compassion workshop on February 20. Mark your calendars now! this practical, hands on workshop will include teaching from me, group discussion (facilitated by amazing women) and some time for thought-provoking reflection. We will discuss simple next steps that you can take right away to live out God’s directive in Micah 6:8: to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.
If you have been wondering how to implement compassion and justice in your life, I think you’ll really enjoy this workshop. Registration details will be available soon–and each person who attends will receive a free copy of Simple Compassion, compliments of Zondervan Publishing.
We’ll announce the winners of the free books on Friday of this week. But meanwhile, have a joyful Thanksgiving!!
Thank you for coming to Midday. It was a real eye opener and I will try to implement some of them it in my life.
[…] Oh, and with all the holiday cooking etc. I didn’t get a chance to blog about the winners of the book drawing. […]
I have been reading your books for several years now, and each time I sit down with one of them, I savor it like a fine delicacy. I enjoy pondering your questions, praying and sitting with God all while being challenged to live a more Christ-filled and authentic life. Often while reading your writings, I feel as if I am having a conversation with someone who knows me well and shares many of life struggles. That is what has compelled me to go online and write you this letter of thanks. Thank you for your openness and honesty with me, a reader. Your authenticity has helped me many times to know that I am not alone in the challenges of life. Several years ago I read Breathe, and was inspired to establish a Sabbath rhythm for myself and my family. This past year, I re-read it and it was meaningful yet again to renew my commitment to such a vital part of my life.
Part of my life’s work is being a Marriage and Family Therapist for women and children. Within that context, I am blessed to often work with Christian women and help them spiritually as well as emotionally. Part of what I hope to do is point my clients in God’s direction and help them to build a stronger, healthier relationship with Him. Just as I nurture and guide women to turn and face their Maker, you, through your books, guide and nurture me in my own spiritual life. Thank you for the role that you have played in my life. I am excited to see that you have another book for me to savor and linger over, for a whole year!
Blessings to you Keri, in your life and ministry work.
