A Woman After God's Own Heart

For those joining us from Friday's post, at the end of this post you will have the opportunity to register for the give-a-way. 

I had the pleasure of meeting with an awesome group of women last Sunday night. These women are married to some of CCA’s finest going through this year’s Men of Honor class.

The wives and I will meet 3 times over the course of the 8 month program their hubs are participating in. These men are being stretched, guided, encouraged and challenged by my hubs monthly. It is a very intense process these men go and grow through.

We all know that in any marriage it takes two to make it a success. Two to commit to each other, two to love each other, two to overcome each other’s faults, two to forgive, and two to grow into men and women of honor and integrity.

This is why I am meeting with the women. Even though the men are the ones who signed up for the course, if the women aren’t seeking God, gleaning from the Word, and being compelled toward growth then it will be a one sided success.

I am excited because over the course of the next few days I want to take my notes from our first meeting and share them with you too!

In the next post I'll share the introduction but today I want to share with you a GREAT book I read years ago that helped cultivate my heart to become the wife/mom/woman of God I am today. I still have a lot to work on but I can honestly say this book has guided my steps through some very slippery slopes these past years.

All the ladies there Sunday night received one and I would love to give one to another lucky lady.

It makes such a great gift for any Bride-to-Be too!!

And with it being the season for weddings, if you leave a comment and share with us a great gift you received or gave as a wedding gift I'll add you into the drawing for a chance to win this awesome book!

Much love :)

p.s.  Here is a picture of me at my wedding shower with one of my fav handmade gifts from my grandmother.  You can read about something else very special she gave me here.

For the last ten years I was a pastor's wife the book I gave as a bride's gift was "Love for a Lifetime" by James Dobson.....I also drew a triangle in the front of the book with the words....Love is a triangle...then drew a triangle with God at the top and man and woman on either side of the triangle and wrote...."the closer you get to God, the closer you get to each other".....

I have a copy of "A Woman after God's own Heart", but could always use another one for a future bride......

Love you Tina......
