It is GOD who BLESSES and TRANSFORMS...

This is a blog for women who:

(1) Desire to be transformed by JESUS' LOVE, HOLINESS, AND GRACE; (2) Believe that GOD'S WORD is the true Spirit food for HIS HOLY SPIRIT who lives within us; (3) Submit to GOD and walk this journey of life with HIM transforming us more and more into HIS likeness.

It's a blog about the POWER OF TRANSFORMED LIVES. Let's begin with yours and mine and pass it on... 1 + 1 + 1...

Since God's Holy Spirit lives inside a christian, let's choose to be nurtured and transformed by feasting daily on Holy Spirit food - God's Word - The Holy Bible..

Once in a while I take a hiatus from writing, but I have begun again on Easter Sunday 2013. Usually, there will be multiple blog postings each week. You are invited to use it as part of your daily quiet time. Topics may run for several months at a time. The current topic is posted over on the right side bar. Each week, I will try to connect to a song or two that goes with our current topic.

Each day of the week follows a special format: Sunday in the Son; Meditation Monday; GratiTuesday; Women in the Word Wednesday; Transforming Thursday; Family Fellowship Friday; and, Ketchup and Mustard Saturday.

There's a whole lot here! Take your time to browse. Please come back and visit often. Welcome!

Because of Jesus, we can be family,

Patti



TRANSFORMED MOMS:MOMS TRANSFORMED

Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

GOD IS GOOD... THROUGH TRANSFORMED MOM MELODY AND HER FAMILY...



God has inspired me through different people over the years. I have seen His goodness through those people and have been a better person because of it. The same thing happens when I see a family unit that works to glorify God together and to show His goodness... I get inspired. One such family is Tim and Melody's. They have 3 children and both parents have jobs. The kids have many extra-curricular activities. They are a busy family. Tim is our deacon of youth. He is focused, passionate, and in love with the LORD. He wants that for his family and our youth. Did I say He is a "big teddy bear"?
.
Melody? Well, Melody, is focused, passionate, and in love with the LORD. Melody has a "heart of gold". On any given day you can find Tim and Melody and their kids involved, in some way, in meeting the needs of others. This past Sunday, they hosted a graduation party for Erin. Erin lost her mommy in January to cancer. She is the youngest of 5 and will be heading out to Harding University soon. I am amazed at the loving way that Melody and her family have served Erin.

I am amazed at the way Tim integrates teen activities so that his whole family can be involved: in service projects and Bible study. Here they are showing up in my front yard several months ago - for a little bit of both!
.

.

And, Tim makes sure to pull together other teen parents and their families, too!!!

.

And, then, there's the mission trips and Bible camp that they all head out on for weeks at a time! They partner with other teen groups and have a great balance of "being on the road again" and "being still to meditate on and know the goodness of God !"



.
I am so grateful for Tim and Melody and family and how their lives reflect the goodness of our God.
