Book Releases in 2023

101 Prayers for Military Wives opened to inside pages with ribbon page marker, pen, paper, and coffee mug

101 Prayers for Military Wives is in a category all its own, and a little skewed. (I authored one release in ’23. 🙂 But this was God’s project, so it simply cannot miss this list.

Our Father loves these women called military wives. They’re noticed, and He desires an authentic, deep relationship with them. You and I are key relayers of this message, helping spread the news by word of mouth, reposting on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter (X), or Facebook, or purchasing copies as gifts.

(Contact me here if you’re interested in purchasing copies to land in the hands of military wives.)

How Do I Review My Year?

Do you take a look back at your year, noting where God has led, corrected, or provided? It’s always good to remember His footsteps in our lives. Here are a few suggestions.

Journals & Christian Planners

One of the ways I review my year is by flipping through my journal and rereading my notes. I also study my completed planner pages.

Here are two free Christian printable planner options.

My family gets a glimpse into their year in review through year-end time capsule questionnaires. We fill them out, tuck them away with the Christmas decorations, and then share them a few years later. We found it offers the most impact when each family member reads someone else’s response out loud to the group. Focus on the Family loved this idea so much, they included the idea in their magazine. You might love it too. If so, sign up and head over to the Subscriber Library where your copy awaits.
