31 Days Closer to Hearing God's Voice

Jen Final

God speaks to us.  He wants us to sit at His feet and let His Words wash over us.  But sometimes, a whole lotta junk gets in the way of us actually hearing what He has to say.  Over the next 31 days, we are going to practice getting our baggage out of the ways so that our heart is prepared to listen to what He has to say.  Do you want to come along for the journey?  

If so, be ready!  The new series kicks off tomorrow at 5 AM!

And do you know, I'm not the only crazy blogger that's trying to write a blog post a day for 31 days!  Here are the others in the party (make sure you read to the end for information about a GIVEAWAY):

31 Days Closer to Your Kids 
Maintaining a relationship with our kids is not always automatic, and just because they live under our roof doesn’t mean we’re always connecting with them. Over the next 31 days, I’ll share some practical tips to help you grow closer to your kids.

31 Days Closer to the Life You Always Wanted
Since cancer threatened to take the life I had, I decided that any days I lived beyond cancer would be dedicated to creating the life I want to live. If you've ever thought: One day I will ... scrapbook, organize my pantry, create cute looks on a lean budget, adopt a baby from Ethiopia, look toned on the beach or read my Bible all the way from Genesis to Revelation or any other big or little someday thought, this series is for you.

31 Days Closer to A Cuter You
Have you had that moment yet? You know the one where you unexpectedly catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror? Yeah…THAT one. If you grimaced instead of grinned, join me for the next 31 days for 31 tips and tricks to tweak your look and come closer to a cuter you!

31 Days Closer to Health, Wellness and Bathing Suit Season
It’s the little things.  All the little things you do in a day either contribute to your health …or not.  Whether your goal is to feel better, drop a few pounds or just strut more confidently in your bathing suit, we’ll cover all the little things you can do to get closer to your goal by June 1st!

31 Days Closer to a New Home
You don’t need to move to get a “new home.”  I am going to reorganize and redecorate the one I have.  In the next 31 days, I will stop the procrastination and tackle all those little projects I’ve been putting off.  So this summer, I can sit back and enjoy my family.  Join me.

Okay, ready for the GIVEAWAY info?  Here it is:

    Big hugs,

  2. PS - I adore your charcoal creations!!!

  3. Is it bad that I totally need 3 of these?


  4. I think you have picked a great topic to blog on for the next 31 days. good for you. I am not trying this this year but maybe another time.
    But I will tweet this too for a chance to win something. thanks for makingit fun too.

  5. Wow! What a great series. I'm looking forward to follow along here and at the other sites as well.

  10. So glad to learn that you are doing this. I blogged about it this morning!

  11. What a great idea. I'm very excited to follow along on this journey. I can really use the motivation!! :) I posted on Facebook.

  12. I posted on FB too! What a wonderful journey to embark upon! Love, love, love it, Jen. I"ll be walking in your footsteps as you travel--gleaning all I can from your words. Love to you, lady!

  13. I added all 6 blogs so I can read them all and Posted a blog about them :o)

  14. I posted it on both my facebook pages: the Graceful page and my personal one, too! Yay, Jen!

  15. Well - I'm not as FB savvy as I'd like to be - but I figured out (w/a friend's help) how to share and get the job done! EACH of the sessions seems SO daunting...kinda gives new meaning to the marvelous creation that God did in JUST SEVEN days. Our 31 day transformations seem SO impossible...keeps us humble I suppose. ;-)

  16. Ok, I told people about this series on my blog, and so I'm heading out to the mailbox to await my charcoal drawing.

  17. I posted this on fb too...praying for you Jen!!! really, really are such a blessing and I hope many you can encourage will find you through this series!

  18. I tweeted, twice, but for some reason it won't let me paste in my status link. :( I'm @marriedlife though and you can find the status on Missy's blog or on the one about being closer to your children.

  19. Looking forward to the series.
    Posted on Twitter, FB, & Blog...

  20. Posted on my blog,FB and small online group of P31!
    It's the 2nd day and got so much inspiration already from the serie....


Don't go yet! Leave me a note with your thoughts.
