Put In The Time

Hello Girlfriends!

I have another video message for you today!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying the remaining weeks of summer. My goodness it has gone by so fast! Don’t you remember how long the summers seemed to be when we were kids? Now they are just zooming by. In fact, life is zooming by, isn’t it?

You know, if we are not mindful, years will slip by and we could miss the opportunity to grow up and become all God has created us to be. There is only one way to mature as a believer in Jesus, and that is to put in the time.

I know, easier said than done – right?

But the truth is, we will not grow and we will not get better unless we find a way to be committed and consistant. There’s no way around it, we have to put in the time.


If you are part of a women’s ministry either in your church or in your community, I am sure there is a Fall Bible study being planned for you right now! August is when the final plans are being made. Will you pray for your leaders?

And, if you are not yet part of a circle of women who go to God’s Word together, pray about joining in. Safe circles of women, who study the scriptures regularly, are the best ‘incubators’ for us to grow. 🙂

Our group will be studying Proven by Jennie Allen. What will you be studying this Fall?

Love to all,

    Thank you for sharing with us from the Word and from your heart, Laura!
    May God bless and provide for you and your family- in abundance…all that you may ask or even think of!
    Hope to hear you speak again in the near future!
    Will you be at Crossroads Retreat this fall? Surely hope so!
    Love and prayers,

      Barb – Thanks for the encouragement! I am speaking at three events this Fall that are open to the public. Bring some friends and come! The details are on my calendar on my website. Soon I will post the registration links too. I wish I could come to the Crossroads retreat, but I am staying close to home in September since October and November are so busy. xo

    Thanks for a great message on commitment Laura, I think you nailed that idea that there can be no growth without commitment

      Thanks so much, Cheryl! xo

    Thank you Laura for your message. I have struggled a lot lately with consistency and the truth of your words encourage me to keep moving forward, making that commitment to my daily time in God’s word a reality.

      Thank you Denise. We all go through seasons of struggle. Glad you are encouraged to keep on kepping on! xo

    Laura this is so true. We need to put in the time with Jesus, and reading His word, in order to mature as a believer. Blessings to you! 🙂

      Blessings to you too, Stacey. Thanks for stopping by. xo
