Won't You Come Home with me? Plus a $300 Target Gift Card and an iPad Mini Giveaway!


My living room, waiting for friends to join me--maybe it will be you?

Having a cup of hot tea, sipping soup with a crust of homemade bread, sharing lunch with my precious family and friends is one of my favorite celebrations in the world.

Where there is feast of friendship and celebration of conversation and sharing of ideas and dreams and hearts, the Lord is there and His life transforms.

Our homes are the arena in which we can build the life of Christ, and in which the life of our home becomes a sanctuary for those who need to feel His life by being welcomed, to receive a "cup" of cold water-- a home cooked meal, a focussed conversation, a healing touch. We celebrate the traditions of home, not because we want to be busier--no one needs that, but to make the life of Christ come alive, to show the beauty of God, to give our children an live picture of His beauty, His reality, His truth, His words and His outreaching love.

When I dreamed of how to influence and help young moms, I began to invite women from all over the world to come to my home for a weekend and to learn about how to walk with God as a mom, how to create a vibrant spiritual life, how to pass on a legacy of love.

And so, when we decided to launch Desperate, we thought, "Wouldn't it be great to share such a weekend with one of our readers?"

And so, I am so very excited to share my home, my heart, my encouragement and the truth of what God has taught me with two of you, friends who will spend a great weekend with Sarah Mae and me.

Read another story of a friend who came to my home, here at thebettermom.com. Ruth will host a book club for me at Itakejoy.com.

I can't wait to have you here. Won't you spread the word to your friends?

Read about it here!

So thankful for all of you who are helping us spread the news to the media and world that moms are passionate about their children by supporting our launch of Desperate and getting the word out! We appreciate you so very much. We are seeing a movement amongst moms that we hope will build the next generation into lovers of God.
