The New FIRST 5 mobile app is here!

Guess what!? It's finally here! The FIRST 5 app is available for download today and I can hardly contain myself! "We say we put God first … So wouldn’t it make sense that we give Him the first 5 minutes of each day?" "Proverbs 31 Ministries is bringing this God-given vision to life through the launch of FIRST 5. This app will be designed to open first thing each day (before social media or emails can distract you) with a short teaching in God’s Word." It's been called "the app that Continue reading

A Splash of Rejuvenation

A Splash of Rejuvenation

Hi Friend, I’m wondering if you’re in need of a fresh word today. Maybe a little splash of rejuvenation after a long week? If you’re like me, the past several days have been packed full with too many assignments, errands, deadlines and responsibilities. I always look forward to the weekends, don't you? It gives me permission to change my pace and slow down a bit. To be more of a noticer and less of a doer. Maybe you’ve had a long week too and would appreciate some refreshment for Continue reading

I'm praying for each one of you today.  ********************* Have you ever had a door of opportunity slam shut right before you walked through it? I did a few months ago. Well, if I'm going to be completely honest it didn't really slam shut ... it just closed. But it sure felt like a slam to me. When I saw the exciting news a friend posted on Facebook, I wanted to be Continue reading

What’s in the Water?

What’s in the Water?

Have you noticed that water seems to be the latest craze? There's bottled water, spring water, flavored water, reverse osmosis water, fizzy water and even fizzy flavored water. All available in our local grocery stores in a variety of colors, shapes and prices. What if someone invented a special kind of water you'd only need to drink once and it would have enough nutrients, vitamins and minerals to sustain you for a lifetime. I'm sure that kind of water would cost a small fortune. Would Continue reading
