Writing a book... what an accomplishment! Praying for you.


Sending prayers for your focus and creativity! I have read your blog for quite some time, but never commented. I just wanted to let you know that you are such an inspiration to me! I am college-aged, and getting married next year and have so enjoyed reading your books (both Happily Ever After and Living Simply). Your books have taught me both how to be satisfied not with THINGS but with relationships, and how to cherish fellowship with other people.

Bless you for all that you do (for being an author, for ministering to so many women, and for being a wife and mother!) you hold many job titles, and do all of them so well.

A noble steed, indeed!

Praying for all the things you asked, friend.


I will be praying for your time to be stretched over the next few days and weeks. Also for your focus. Living Simply has been such a gift. Truthfully, the pretty blue cover caught my eye and I am so glad that it did. I have been enjoying your blog and getting such sweet glimpses of how you live as a mother and wife. The most encouraging thing I've gleaned is what an incredible friend you are. That is an area where God is shaping me a bit right now, and I am thankful for your example. I will be praying for your new book.


Precious Corrie...I love the donkey illustration...excellent. Joanne, may He use you to influence others for the Kingdom!
