My precious sisters in Christ;

I was driving down the road about three weeks ago and was praying for my family. Out of the blue I felt a gentle push. I want you to leave the internet is what my heart said. Now I don’t claim that God spoke to me but I do know when I am being prompted by God’s Spirit inside of me. First I argued, which is no surprise to those who really know me. I said LORD do you know how big my blog is getting right now? I love teaching and this has been my only avenue over the past year. Why would I want to give it up? Why would the LORD want me to get rid of it? It made no sense to me. Again, I want you to give up the internet. Then I argued about the other things I do on the internet like our banking. How would I ever pay bills again? Again, I want you to give up the internet. Then I whined which is not a pretty site inside my head! I love reading blogs from other women, why would I give that up?

Then I remembered Gideon and his desire to please God but he needed some proof. I would be heading out to go visit son#1 and his wife and now three children. They don’t have radio, TV. or the internet so I left my computer at home. The second afternoon I wished I had the computer but prayed and the desire went away.

I promised the LORD that when I got back from our sons I would get my bills in order so I could be off line for a month. I will be gone a full month and then ask the LORD again. I can’t imagine not writing about God’s word any more. But, I have learned over the years to trust the Master of the Universe. I am not giving up a child like Abraham was asked to do but I am giving up a passion that I have felt was honoring God and I have no clue why.

It has been a pleasure to come into your home and share God’s word with you. Please pray for me as I will for you. There are many blogs out there that will encourage you but I guess mine won’t be one of them.

Thank you for inviting me into your home. I love and will miss you all.

In Christ Alone,


"Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up"


  1. will miss you very much. You are such a wonderful woman of God and an encouragement. Blessings to you. I will be praying.

  2. I'm sad to read this. How will we keep in touch? I understand being convicted by God, however, so I support your decision. Love you!

  3. Awww you'll be missed yet I understand, I've taken a few weeks off here or there myself. Does you and the Lord a lot of good!
