August Guest Line Up & Tune in Thursday #23

Tweet Hello! I hope you been been blessed by our summer Tune In Thursday Guest Bloggers.  I sure have!  In case you missed any of them just click on the pictures below. I can’t believe it is August already!  Wow time sure has flown by.  Have you been enjoying your summer? It has been unusually warm here in the PNW and we are supposed to get into the 100’s this week.  For some parts of the country that is normal, but not for WA State. Although my summer has been busy with rewrites, and working with my editor.  I have had some fun things mixed.  I celebrated a birthday, went to my husbands 30-year class reunion, but had to miss mine. (I know I am showing my age LOL).  I finally had a few days with no writing, while waiting for edits to come back and got a chance to finish a fiction book someone gave me for Christmas 2 years ago. August is gearing up to be just as busy:  My hubby and I will celebrate 28 years of marriage. I am nearing the time for beta testing, with my book. Yahoo!   I should also get a sneak peek soon of the publishers cover design – Will you join me in prayer for it to be God inspired?  Thanks.  Plus lots of unplanned adventures that I am sure will find me as well. I would love to hear what you have been up to, or what you have planned for the rest of this summer. Please share with me in the comments below.   I don’t have...

Intimacy with God Vlog #44 Lessons from the Lake

Tweet Do you have a favorite Gospel you turn to when you want to read the stories of Jesus?  I do!  Mine is Luke.  Luke, being a doctor, wrote in detail. Sometimes Luke gives more details than the other 3 gospels, and it’s always from a unique perspective. What is your favorite Gospel to read the stories of Jesus?  Matthew?  Mark?  Luke?  John? What’s your favorite Gospel Book in the Bible to read the stories of #Jesus?Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This I recently learned when my daughter was leading the church in Communion that her favorite Gospel is John. Today on the video blog, I want to share with you a  powerful lesson I was reminded of  about Intimacy with God.  –  Enjoy today’s video below. #God wants us to enter into rest and intimacy with Him.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This   #God can wash away the messes in our life.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This I love how, God calls us to be intimate with Him.  He longs for us to rest, and relax in His presence.  He longs for us to let our hair down and lean back against His chest like John did to hear His heartbeat.  But more than all that, He also wants to wash us.  He wants to take those things in our life that seems messy or tarnished and He wants to cleanse it all.  Not just our feet, but our entire self.  – I pray you were encouraged today by the video I shared and that you too will push past anything standing in the way...

Walk With God Vlog #43 Lessons from the Lake

Tweet Last week I talked about being a friend of God.  If you missed it you can watch it by clicking on the picture below. This week is part 2 of being a friend of God. Now, Enjoy today’s video  …   In his book: Secrets of the Secret Place, Bob Sorge says, “God wants to walk with us and work through us” That’s right,  are we called to partnering with God in the tough times and then in abundance too. In Fact Scriptures tells us that  He (God) never leaves us or forsakes!  We may feel alone, but we are not. Don’t you just love the hymns of days gone by.  I grew up on signing them, and I often find that they come rushing back into my mind and heart when I am facing things, as a reminder of God’s promises.  He surely does walk with me and talk with me along life’s narrow ways. God longs to walk with me and talk with me, everyday.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This In the valley lows, and the mountain highs, God is there.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This Tweet   Special Announcements: New Link up Party – Tune in Thursday’s is HERE – Join Me THIS Thursday, right here on debbiekitterman.com every Thursday! #TuneInThursday goes live each wek at 3 AM (PST) and runs through Sunday.  Mark your calendars and prepare to join me Thursday for the NEXT Tune In Thursday linkup! 2.

Summer Preview & Tune In Thursday #19

Tweet Hello! I hope that you had a wonderful Independence Day Celebration with your family and friends.   I would love to hear how you celebrated. Did you do something new this year? follow through with a family tradition? OR ??? Please share with me in the comments below. As for us?  Well, we’ve had a full house since last week when our first family guest arrived. My parents, plus my husbands mom and aunt have been here for the last 6 days. My momma’s heart was happy when my son came to visit for a few days, but he couldn’t stay through the 4th. On the 4th we hosted our annual lakeside potluck BBQ and watched fireworks around the lake.  Delicious food, fun conversations, and watching the awe and wonder light up the kids’ face is exactly how I imagined spending the 4th of July.   Due to all the busyness I just shared above and then some, I don’t have a post to share with you this week. (Link up is still below) Instead I am giving you a sneak peak, of  the Tune In Thursday Summer Preview.  A preview of the Special Guests who will be joining me on the  Blog in July.. and throughout the rest of the summer too.  Yahoo!   July’s Summer Line Up:   July 13: God Never Promised Easy, Where’s your Faith in the Hard?   BY: Julie Loos                 July 20:Declaration of Dependence    BY:  Michele Morin                     July 27:  When You Need Support to Bear...
