Devotional Reminders

This is a group for committed Christian women, devoted to daily Bible reading and prayer. Members of this group receive daily devotional reminders. We believe that the Bible is God's inspired, infallible and inerrant word. Without Christ and His redemptive work on the cross, our world would be without hope. May God through the work of His Holy Spirit, grant us grant us His wisdom, guidance, peace and direction.

"Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice." (Psalm 55:17)

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16b)


NOTE: This is a NO POST Yahoo group. We will be posting at the "Christian Women Today" forum instead.

THE "50 in 15 ORGANIZING LADIES" GROUP IS BACK!!!


For women who prefer to work with 15 minute intervals, this group has just been reformed! This is a Christian based, homemaking group, that is based on the principle, that you can accomplish A LOT in just 15 minutes!! We set our timers for 15 minute intervals, and then do one of the following: a) Pick up 50 items and put them away. b) Tidy one room of the house. The posted LINKS are a great resource and helpful checklists can be found in our FILES. You can put these printed sheets into your control binder. Working with a timer, helps to keep you focused. Fifteen minute intervals are not long, and are a manageable interval for even the busiest person!! If you do NOT want a lot of e-mails in your mailbox, please request the "DAILY DIGEST" or "SPECIAL NOTICES".

The members of this group will follow a 10 day "STEP PLAN" which will lead to daily maintenance of their homes. We will begin Day 1 with 5 areas/rooms of our home to clean. We will add one area (room)to our daily list each day, till we arrive at Day 10, which will be our "Basic Plan for Daily Maintenance". It will take only 10 days to reach this plan!

We will be using a pedometer (though it is not required for membership to this group). You will receive daily reminders to drink water, check your steps, exercise, and eat properly! This group is for women who would like to implement healthy lifestyles. "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." (I Corinthians 6:19-20) (Please consult with your doctor, before commencing a fitness program.)

COUNTING STEPS WHILE CLEANING......CAN YOU WALK 1,000 STEPS/HOUR?

I LOVE using my pedometer, while house cleaning! It is a wonderful motivator, as I track my steps by the hour! (It is recommended that people walk 10,000 steps a day, for good health!) Can you do it?
 
 
Here are some of the TOP RATED pedometers on the market today! My DH and I, each have the SW-700 model. It is pictured on our "Pedometer Ladies" website. The link to this U.S. based company is below:
 
 
The Canadian link to the supplier is: 
 
 
These make great Christmas gifts!! We LOVE these pedometers, which also come with replacement parts. (This saves replacing your entire pedometer,if your clip breaks, or your battery needs replacing, etc.) These are especially great pedometers, since their internal mechanism makes them 99% accurate. They are made in Japan. After doing a LOT of research on pedometers, I came across these made by YAMAX, and I have not found any that are more accurate, or have superior features. They also come with a "safety strap", which will save you replacing it, if it ever comes loose from your waist! I have used mine for almost two years now, and have never regreted purchasing it!
 
"The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way." (Psalm 37:23)
 
Our pedometer group would love to have you join us!!

MAKING YOUR DREAMS YOUR DESTINY

On Saturday morning, I was attending a Christian women's breakfast, and the keynote speaker was Judy Rushfeldt. She is the author of "Making Your Dreams Your Destiny", and had a profound and challenging message to the women in the audience.

Part way through the meeting, she decided to throw her latest book into the audience, and it landed right at my feet!! The gift was worth $21.99, and I am quite excited about reading it! Here is a link to the book:

http://www.makingyourdreams.com

"Judy Rushfeldt has been writing for 25 years.....She recently launched an online women's outreach magazine, and is on her way to reaching a goal of 500,000 visitors a month."

http://www.LifeToolsforWomen.com

>>>free online subscription at this link!<<<

I thought that these links would be of great interest to you ladies, particularly the free newsletter. I have already subscribed to it, after being totally inspired and motivated after her speech! Judy speaks with great humility and respect for what the Lord has accomplished in her life, by surrendering her life in service to Him. Her messages are firmly rooted in scriptures, and all glory and honor is given to Christ alone, for the work that He is doing through this outreach!

To Him alone be praise!

Annie

WHY WE SHOULD LISTEN MORE


The words of Jesus in John 10:27 say:
"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."

If we love Jesus, we will obey Him and follow Him. We learn to obey Him, by listening to His voice in the scriptures.

In "Devotions for a Sacred Marriage", Gary Thomas writes about how this verse relates to our marriages. If we love our husbands, we will listen to them.

Let us make it our goal to LISTEN more, and talk less. He quotes from Proverbs 10:19, which says that, "When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise."

Let us see the positive effect, that using this scripture, will have in our marriages!

To find out more about Gary Thomas, and his books on marriage, you can check out this link at: http://www.garythomas.com
