I missed out on this weeks memory verse. I'll join up next Monday. It's a great idea.

Congrats on Seminary, that's really exciting!

I've been absent in the blogosphere lately, but I do want to participate in Memory Monday starting next week!

So thankful to hear about seminary. How exciting!

Love you!

Melissa @ Breath of Life

Oh...and my book fast will be over in January, so I'll be able to buy your book! I can't wait!


Congrats! On all of it. Sorry, I blew by the verse day, too...Glad you got some faithful responders. (((hugs)))

Praying for you today, friend!

So glad for the perfect timing God has for this book--asking Him to greatly use it and bless others.

I really hope to meet Pumpkin sometime soon!


I can not wait to read your new book... I guess I'll have to :) Good luck with editing today.


I am so pleased for you that you'll be starting school soon! It's so exciting!

I need all the help I can get when it comes to my memory, so I love the idea of Memory Monday.

I loved little Pumpkin's contribution to your blog Joanne! I have a Macbook too and I've just had to wrestle our cat off the keyboard too! Must be something about how flat it is!



I remember you writing it...I believe I spent some of my Disney vaca sending you some answers to LOVED doing that, by the way. Can't wait to read the book.

Okay, so I've pretty much memorized MY scripture for this I laughed when I read it in our devotion yesterday, too.

Next week...I'll branch out a bit. Maybe memorize something with, oh say, four or five words in it!

Congrats on the acceptance. Now we'll all know who to go to in order to help us with our OT questions.

Love ya.

I'm so excited to read you next book! You sure have a lot of great things going on! : ) I get to meet your friend Janna Widdifield on Sat. She is doing a fundraiser for our MOPS. Such a small world!

I am looking forward to reading your newest book. I am certain that it will be a great read that I go to over and over again.

So many good things are happening in your life and you deserve each and every one of them.


I'd love to get on the memory verse bandwagon. I have always wished I learnt more bible verses as a child, but it is never too late to start.

Also, congratulations on your acceptance to Denver Seminary.


I do not really follow your blog, but I have come here a few times, as a link from a friend. I am very intrigued to hear that you are going to Denver Sem! Congratulations! I am actually finishing my MA in Biblical Studies (Hebrew Bible) at Iliff School of Theology (by DU). I guess I am wondering why you chose to go to Denver Sem rather than Iliff. I don't really have much to say- but I suddenly felt a connection to you and your upcoming journey when I read that you were about to attend seminary, and I look forward to hearing more about your adventures to come in grad school. It is a lot of work, and a lot of fun. I wish you the very best.


So excited about your new book, Joanne. And I'm on board starting tomorrow for Memory Monday. I really need to work on that!

Oh, and I can help you with your baby fix anytime you want.
