MVOTW


I know a lot of you may have become my follower to win a great bib and burp set. Thank you for doing so! I hope that you'll stick around for a few more weeks as I plan on giving away more items...and not just baby things!

In the meantime, please get to know me in my About Me section. You'll find that I am a Christian. One of my resolutions for 2009 was to memorize a Bible verse every week. Here is this week's:

2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

Why Memorize scripture?

Chuck Swindoll wrote, “I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than memorizing Scripture. . . . No other single exercise pays greater spiritual dividends! Your prayer life will be strengthened. Your witnessing will be sharper and much more effective. Your attitudes and outlook will begin to change. Your mind will become alert and observant. Your confidence and assurance will be enhanced. Your faith will be solidified” (Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1994], p. 61).

Billy Graham said, "I am convinced one of the greatest things we can do is to memorize scripture" [Personal Thoughts of a Public Man, p.88].
