Growing up in the Lord
Welcome family, friends, link up readers, new readers, and anyone in between. Thank you for your grace and patience in waiting for the unveiling and grand opening of my new domain and corner of the Internet. (The wait might have been easier for you than for me). I am a work in progress and through writing, I share that journey. I am a Christian, seeking to only follow the Bible, and grow my family in God’s word.
If you’ve read anything else I’ve written, you know I like music. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that these thoughts reminded me of an Acappella classic song “Growin’ Up in the Lord” and I plugged that name into the domain box and it was available. I quickly messaged Keith Lancaster on Facebook and tears of joy formed as I read his reply: So glad you are calling it that! Blessings on your ministry.
Now some of you may not be the avid lifelong fans of Acappella Ministries that I am. You may not attend worship at certain congregations in a certain place when you find out one of the former members attends there or get extremely excited when said member happens to be leading singing that Sunday. You may not plan your family vacation to attend a retreat and be extra thrilled to find out that Keith Lancaster himself will be there to lead worship. If all this is foreign to you or if you need a refresher, here are the lyrics and a link to “Growin’ Up in the Lord.”
I am excited at what this new chapter may bring. I feel called to pursue this avenue in a way I am unable to explain. Writing became more than a means of keeping people updated and documenting our adventures. Writing became more than an outlet for everything that happens in a day. Writing truly became my ministry.
To those who shared in my journey from close to the beginning, thank you for sticking with me and helping me grow. To those who joined me along the way, I am blessed that you came along for the ride. To those who may be hopping on board for the first time, welcome and I hope you find a reason to stay awhile.
Dig through the archives to learn a little more about me, about our family, our adventures, our struggles. Laugh with us, cry with us, learn with us. Join our journey of growing up in the Lord.
Thank you for your encouragement, as always!
I really like the new layout and name, it looks great. Thank you for sharing it with us at Good Morning Mondays. I am looking forward to hearing more from you as life goes on. Blessings to you and your family. Xxx
I am SO glad you came by and offered this encouragement (I already popped over and did the same for you – gotta share the Blog Love). My favorite thing about the Good Morning Mondays link up is that it’s in Australia (I went there in 2001 for a chorus Mission trip to Brisbane and Canberra).
I think I fit under the “link up reader” category 🙂 happy to be dropping in from Good Morning Mondays and I’m very excited for you! I like the new domain name and the thought you put into it. Thankfully the Bible verse I wanted for my faith blog (John 13: 35) wasn’t already in use, otherwise I’d be stuck brainstorming new names for a while 😛
Thank you! I am honored to join the link up. Glad you like what you see and I’ll do my best to live up to my fans’ expectations.
I am a new follower, but I wanted to say that I’m loving what I see!
So happy to have you link up at the July Everyday Friends Monthly Blog and Social Media Hop ! Have a great week! ~Kelly, Our Everyday Harvest
