About seven years ago, I discovered the King’s Blooming Rose magazine … a publication with a similar purpose to Shining Stars, namely that of encouraging young ladies in their journey heavenward. Sarah Bryant, the editress, and I began swapping magazines and I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving KBR!
It is a high-quality, beautifully-designed quarterly publication that features material that will bless ladies of all ages. I highly recommend it! Sarah has offered to give away a one year subscription to one of our readers, so you can enter for a chance to win in the rafflecopter below.
I also want to let you know about the Joyful Daughters conference that Sarah and her family are hosting in March.
My mother, sisters and I were actually planning to attend but then we had something else come up that weekend and our whole family is committed to be elsewhere. But if you are in the area, or enjoy traveling, I think you would be greatly blessed by attending this conference. You can find more information on their website.
One more thing: we are going to take a short break with this blog. Our whole family is busy right now and I am on overload. A month or so ago, I started trying to figure out how to cut back on some responsibilities and commitments and since then I have been more swamped than ever before. I’ve thought about shutting down this blog a hundred times, in spite of the fact that so many of you expressed how much you enjoy it (and I really appreciate your input!) … but each time I think or pray about it, I don’t think it’s the right decision. I enjoy this blog. I enjoy writing and the creativity that I can express through it. I also love that my sisters and mother and I can work together and all of us can contribute. But even though we do have multiple contributors, I have the main responsibility for keeping it running and right now, I need to take a break from that. Hopefully it will only be a couple weeks, but it may be longer. I don’t know. I would appreciate prayers!
Have a lovely week!
