Announce: To Say (Something) In a Loud or Definite Way {Giveaway Announcement Today!}

See, the former things have taken place,
and new things I declare;
before they spring into being
I announce them to you.
(Isaiah 42:9 NIV)
I couldn’t wait. Last night I put all your lovely names in a bowl, those who commented here and on Facebook for the Giveaway. Our winner is Jennifer P! I will contact her and get her the goods: my book and a collage kit based on my recent souldare class, “YOU ARE HERE”. Enjoy!


As September ends, I am ready for something NEW! Earlier in the summer, I was pondering what I might focus on for The Nester’s challenge: 31 Days Of…

So without further ado, here is my theme:


As autumn gradually leads us to Advent Season, I continue to spend my days with ordinary times. I want to fill these days with quiet reflection and refreshing, new ways to enjoy God’s presence, to listen to His voice and to be filled with His desires. 

So I dusted off a little book called 30 Ways to Wake Up Your Quiet Time by Pam Farrel, who graciously gave me permission to use the contents to share with you this month of October. The book is out of print, but you can still find used copies on amazon.

Pam and her husband, Bill Farrel have a vibrant ministry that offers encouragement for marriages. I bought this little book several years back, and found the quiet time suggestions spiced up my relationship with God. As many of you know this girl loves VARIETY!

Won’t you join me for the next 31 days for some quiet and possibly some LOUD times? And some definite ways to know and love God more deeply?

  1. Kel, what a fabulous idea. I know Pam and Bill, personally, and they do, indeed, have a godly, vibrant ministry–mostly to married couples. But her little book is a gem, and I have often used it in spicing up my own devotional time with the Lord. I echo your sentiments and highly recommend it and encourage your readers to find a copy. I'ts gold, and it's compact and an easy read…….and mostly, it leads you to the throne of grace in a variety of ways. What a great 31-day topic!LoveLynni

  2. Hi Kel! I think I'd love this book. I really covet my quiet time. My head gets so busy! I think I meant to join you before, I'll do it now for sure!Ceil

  3. Lynni- It is a fun little book…I look forward to revisiting its contents and meeting with the Lord daily in October and to see what He brings about here at the blog…thanks for your encouragement! Love-Kel

  4. Hi Ceil! I am excited that you will be joining us for the journey into Quiet! I know God has some surprises in store. I love how much He wants us to enjoy His presence. Blessings-Kel

  5. Seriously, Kel – you and I …we are like sisters in my opinion. I will absolutely be following your posts…that is right up my alley. I also love the commenters above- what a sweet group here! I think this book sounds lovely and I love quiet and quiet time with our Lord! Super!

I love a dialogue. Be the first to start a discussion!
