So much is going on in my life! Good things are happening. One is that I'm getting my Tempered series & The Visionary up on Smashwords, so if you have an e-reader (other than a Kindle or Nook) you can now get them! Check out my page HERE.
Enough about me though...Today we welcome Marilyn Dawson back to our Saturday Spotlight with another of her titles. Mom's Little Black Book: Godly Advice for the High School Graduate sounds like a great book to give to the graduates in your life. Here's more about it and Marilyn.....
Marilynn Dawson, author of "Becoming the Bride of Christ: A Personal Journey", has written a new book entitled, "Mom's Little Black Book: Godly Advice for the High School Graduate". This little book is meant to be a Mother's attempt at guiding her teen-turning-young adult through some of the more common aspects of daily life. Among it's pages the reader will find quotes from a much more comprehensive guide, otherwise known as the Bible! Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Each page contains one tidbit of advice, or a Scripture, or a work-page to help your youth along their way. This book is divided into sections, so that if your teen needs advice on something, they can find it quicker just by going directly to the desired section.
God says to raise up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. God also urges parents to ensure that their children, like arrows from a quiver placed in the bow-string, fly straight and true. It is Marilynn's hope that these tidbits of advice assist your youth to fly straight and true as they go out to become all that God created and designed them to be.
EXCERPT: Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
My Dearest Child,
There are many forces in the world that seek to conform you to their standard, their way of thinking, their ideals, their measure of success, etc.
Do not be swayed by the world, but instead, measure yourself against the Word of God! When your ways please God, you can rest at night knowing the only person who matters, smiles over you. Pattern your life after God's ways and you'll never go wrong.
God has a sense of humour. How do I know? Just look at the Platypus!
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Don't hoard God's blessings for yourself. You may just be the delivery conduit.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."
Attend the House of God! Don't abandon it because of how others treat you!
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
Spend a little time every day in God's Word. It is food for your daily life.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Remember God's involvement in your life, how He was there in various situations. He is there now.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Talk to God. He loves to hear about your day and how you feel.
