Okay, so maybe you don't have as much of a K-cup obsession as the FV team, but we thought a coffee house theme for bloggers would get the creative beans brewing.
Click the sub-page "Blog Community" (above) for an ever-growing list of our bloggers, organized by category. You can join them! After you move in as a member, bloggers can network their existing blog into JavaJuice Bloghouse via RSS or create an original blog we will host here. Need help? Check out the Help Desk.
Would you let the world into your checking account? Would you lay open the story of your marriage as you struggled through money woes? Finances are a very personal matter. In her new release, Broke, Caryn Rivadeneira shares not only her financial hardship but the spiritual struggles that accompanied it. The principles discussed in Broke apply, however, to any difficult season or circumstance, not just pocketbook woes. Read along here as Caryn shares some insights into her process of writing vulnerably.
FV: Many people suffer financial hardships and don't want to share it with anyone, much less write a book about it. How did you decide to bare your checkbook, as it were, to the world?
Noah looked like his father, and she hadn’t noticed it before.
But here in the backseat of a Dodge Caravan strewn with skateboarding magazines and CDs, there was time enough to see it in the young man whose long legs stretched from the seat beside her. To see the freckles dusting her grandson’s cheeks, the way his hair poked up like a hayfield and his eyes grabbed at everything.
Up front, Oliver asked Shane to adjust the radio, the static reminding Clara of the white noise she used to make with a vacuum or a fan to calm her newborns. The first one being Shane, her eldest, the one in the passenger seat turning now to laugh at his father, who wrinkled his long nose as Shane tried to find a classical station.
If it’s not obvious already, I absolutely love blogs and social media. God has given us tremendous resources in our day to utilize great ways to reach more people with the Gospel and to stay connected with others in ways we never could have before.
As with anything that the Lord gives us, there’s always a temptation for consequences and for things to be used the wrong way. We have a tendency as sinful people to take things that God creates and to use them sinfully when that wasn’t His original intent. While we can stay connected to others, we might lose face-to-face personal relationships. While we can reach more people with the Gospel, we might be missing someone next door.
