Welcome to the weekend!
I hope you're enjoying these summer days - even as kiddos run circles around you and your home all day :)
I want to say a big "thanks!" for popping in and visiting the blog! It's always a joy to know you're here.
Sometimes I'm asked how to encourage and support this ministry, and if this blog is a place you've found refreshment in Gospel truths you can:
1) Pray this will continue to serve others well!
2) Share pieces you've found particularly helpful on social or send the link in a text or email. Forward the monthly newsletter to a friend (here's July 2022). This helps the writer (me) know what's meaningful and engaging to you.
So a thank-you again for taking the time to be here. I appreciate your support. May you draw near to the Vine today and continue abiding in Him.
