  1. Kate – me too! I wasn’t into the social media, then have been on a kick trying to push myself and do more and be a better blogger. Sigh. I ordered the #PresentOverPerfect book because I need it. Really I just need to stop and breathe, and take my Bible and notebook outside again. When I did that, I could focus – even on the kids somehow. I guess His word calms the spirit..

    Thanks for hosting again. I love having the chance to let it flow and get my artsy on, haha!

  2. I am so excited about this year’s Write 31 Days; and the FMF free writes! This will be my 3rd year of the challenge, and the 2nd year for using these prompts. I have been really bad about participating with FMF this past year; but hopefully the challenge will get me back into the groove. I love challenging myself with the word prompts…

    BUT, now I may have to re-think what I had wanted to do!! After reading over the words…I’m going to have to really stretch it to be “In His Word” with the prompts!!! I was considering that…”31 Days in His Word” only using the prompt to jump-start the post!! OK, a few more days to think about it; with a retreat right at the start of the challenge, I’ll need to work ahead!

    Thank you for offering this again and look forward to reading everybody’s posts…now, to get busy!!
