Carpool -- it's what I do all summer!

Carpool — it’s what I do all summer!

Hey Friends 🙂

Are you eagerly anticipating the “lazy days of summer?”

I’m not sure who coined that phrase — but that’s definitely not how I describe the next three months at my home!

Our summer days are filled with lots of kids, camps, carpools, cleaning, chaos and craziness.

Anyone else?

Every day brings different schedules, opportunities and activities – and with 4 kids ages  10, 11, 12 and 19 and one crazy runaway dog– I’m learning I must be filled to the brim with patience, flexibility, and grace.

Thus the reason that I absolutely MUST spend time in Scripture everyday.

God’s Word is my Rock in a summer season of long days, late nights, and lots of hustle and bustle.

I love how Beth Moore shares…

“…Summer is a great time to take off from school but it is NOT a great time to take off from the Scriptures. Three months out of an in-depth experience with God through His Word is plenty of time to find ourselves in a pit. No thanks. Let’s commit and hold one another accountable. The most steadfast victories are planned for in advance. I believe that with all my heart so consider this post our plan for summer V-I-C-T-O-R-Y. ” – Beth Moore

Yes, Beth! We want a summer V-I-C-T-O-R-Y too!

What is your Summer Victory plan? Do you have a Summer Bible reading plan or study?

If you’ve not come up with a plan yet, here are a couple of ideas..

• Summer New Testament Bible Reading Plan. Go at your own pace here. Maybe invite a friend for accountability and discussion. Fun!Bonus Pack

• Red Hot Faith. Learn more about hosting a Red Hot Faith group this summer here.

West Michigan friends, there are a number of red-hot groups you can join — including

Berkley Hills Wesleyan Church beginning Thursday nights on June 5th;
Calvary Church on Wednesday evenings beginning June 18th;
Tabernacle Community Church evenings starting Monday July 7th; or
Holy Cross Lutheran on Wednesday nights beginning July 9th.

Message me for more details — and yes, I’ll be at the kick-off for all of them. Yay!

• Children of the Day. Beth Moore is going through her new study Children of the Day this summer on her blog. More information here.

Of course, we can’t talk about Summer Victory without mentioning memorizing Scripture.

BibleCupThis summer, my friend Julie and I are continuing our memory work on the book of James. We’ve finished Chapter 1, and are slowly but surely making it through Chapter 2.

If you don’t a scripture memory plan, maybe consider the memorizing A to Z Style. I’d love to help you get started!

You’ve heard me say it before, but it’s absolutely true – my life has been transformed because my mind has been transformed – and this has come by a daily habit of reading and memorizing God’s Word.

How about you, my friends?
