I began this week with tears because I miss two of my kids who moved up to college. I end this week with tears because our 18th Online Bible Study is coming to an end.
It is my sincere hope that you have found something special here. We have loved gathering with you as we’ve read Am I Messing Up My Kids? by Lysa TerKeurst. I was on the phone with Lysa last night and one of the things we talked about was how very special our OBS community is. It’s been fun to meet other moms of all stages of motherhood from all over the world. It’s been helpful to know we aren’t alone and that there is hope for us as moms and for our kids … no matter what the circumstances. And I think more than anything, this study has reminded me that my relationship with Jesus is the most important thing I can have for myself and for me as a mom. I don’t want to do anything in life apart from Him, especially in my role as a mom!
So, OBS #18 is a wrap … now what?
We want to invite you to join our next OBS if you haven’t already. It’s The Best Yes, by Lysa TerKeurst, already a best-seller on The New York Times list! That study begins September 22 and Lysa and I hope you’ll join us! We have a lot of great stuff planned for this study! You can sign up here.
We also want to invite you to join us in the North Carolina Mountains for a weekend of rest and renewal. It’s the Proverbs 31 OBS Real Life Dreams Retreat!
We are so excited about this. We think you might possibly walk into this retreat tired, frazzled, and empty. We know you will leave feeling renewed, filled with hope, carrying a God-sized dream in your heart. Your soul will be rested, but I can’t promise you won’t be sleep-deprived — LOL! Please join us! It’s going to be lots of fun. We have some great messages and teaching for you as well as hours of free time to enjoy The Cove, the beautiful mountains, some new friendships, or just to be alone. Many ladies from Proverbs 31 Ministries and our OBS team will be there! Registration will be closed in just 16 days, so go ahead and sign up now! We want to meet you and spend some time with you! Registration and information here.
Whether you are going to the retreat or not, would you at least help us spread the word? With registration closing so soon, we don’t want anyone to miss out! Here are some ready-made Facebook posts and Tweets. Would you share these on your sites with your friends?
Could you use some R&R? A little God-ordained me-time, to get away from the hectic pace of life? Only a few spots remain for our Fall Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Studies retreat with Lisa Allen, Melissa Taylor, Wendy Blight, Nicki Koziarz & Steph Raquel. The last day to register is Sept. 6. (Sorry, no late registrations allowed and we don’t want anybody to miss out!) We hope to see you there!!
