Let's kick off the year with an update to our Tuesday Talk Host Features shall we?
On the fourth Tuesday of each month I will be featuring one of my twelve lovely co-hosts.
I hope this will be a fun way for you to get to know the ladies behind the link-up better
First up, Sarah at Abiding in Grace!
Describe yourself in 3 words:
Realist. Creative. Organized.
What are five of your favorite things?
1.) I love coffee. With lots of Chocolate/Caramel creamer. I've tried all of the other creamers, but the International Delight's Chocolate/Caramel creamer is my fav!
2.) I also love words. Pretty words. Long words. Short words. Words strung together are my favorite thing in the world. The spoken words in beautiful screen writing. The written words typed on the screen revealing the inner heart. The Words of Scripture. Encouraging. Deepening. Comforting. Convicting. Living.
3.) Parenthood. I loved this show so very much. I binged watched it on Netflix this past year. It is only one of a very few shows I would re-watch again.
4.) Bible Study. Studying the Bible is one of my favorite thing to do. I recently read one of the best books on Bible Study. Woman of the Word is an amazing book! She explains how to read the word with purpose, perspective, prayer, patience, and a process.
What is a motto you live by?
Abiding in Grace. It isn't just the title of my blog, it is the theme of my heart. I love John 15 and the image Jesus uses with the vine and branches. I desire my life to be connected to the Branch (Jesus). Learning how to abide in Him and His Word is my ultimate goal. Grace is something I can talk about, but I have such a hard time putting it into practice. I want to remember that Grace is the foundation for abiding.
What makes you feel beautiful inside and out?
I love it when my hair is cooperating. I'm one of those 'curly-haired' girls. Anyone with curly hair understands that you can't tame the beast. It either works for the day and looks fabulous, or it just doesn't. When its working, I just feel amazing!
What would your one piece of blogging advice be for our readers?
My one piece of advice would be to offer valuable content. I visit the blog who give me good content. If the words are written well and if the content is valuable to me. Along those same lines, don't worry about offering everything to everyone! You find your niche and stick with what you know. You won't have all the readers, but you will have your readers. Keep giving good content. Its not about the quantity -but the quality.
What was the most helpful advice you received about adoption?
God is still working. I remember thinking during the wait and even after we arrived home with our baby, it seemed God kept whispering to me those words: I'm still working. Even behind the scenes. Even when things don't go as planned or life is at a standstill - He is still working and it will be good. It will always be good.
What is your favorite book of the Bible, and why?
My favorite book is probably John. I took a class a long time ago on the Gospel of John. I've read through it so many times. I can't wait to put into practice new Bible Study methods and study this book in depth. So many good truths found there! One author wrote: "John is shallow enough for a baby to wade and deep enough for an elephant to swim."
Share below your favorite book of the Bible.
I can't wait to hear where God speaks to you the best!
As a wife, mother (of four), home-school momma, and writer, Sarah has found the secret to working for the Lord is resting in His grace. His faithfulness is the theme of her story. Sarah desires to encourage all women to seek after God through their own study of the Bible. In 2015, Sarah's life changed forever when they brought home their sweet China-girl. Through one of the hardest years, she learned how God gives courage, grace, and strength to the weak. God has become her daily satisfaction, providing honey from the rock - just for her. Psalm 81:16 - But he would feed you with the finest of the wheat, and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you. Discover how God can provide the daily grace you need over on her blog....
