Grateful for You


I know it is Thanksgiving and we all read those cliche gratitude posts, but hear my heart. If you have read this blog, you’re part of this ministry. If you have shared my blog you’re working for this ministry. If you have subscribed to this blog, you’re keeping me motivated to continue this ministry. I want to say THANK YOU. You matter!!!

God has blessed me with such a beautiful life. I get to do a lot of fun and exciting things with my family. I get to connect with all of you. I get to glorify my God in everything I write. It keeps me grateful. It keeps me grounded and it keeps me in a position to find joy every single day.

Because of you, this blog is now being read in 27 countries. My stats this month were the highest they have ever been. The traffic and interaction truly move my heart because I know someone is reading scripture. Someone is relating. Someone is finding joy in their own day.

Because of you a perfect stranger and first-time reader read “Bring. It. On”. She remembered who she was in God and shared her burden with me. That is what it is all about. It doesn’t stop at networking. It is about connecting and leaning on one another. It is about knowing who is really in charge and remembering how good and kind and loving He is. YOU ARE MAKING THAT CONNECTION POSSIBLE!

You are amazing creatures and your very existence has brought so much purpose and so much happiness to my days. I pray that you have found value in this ministry and that you know you are my why. I love each of you so much.

It does not matter if I have met you. It does not matter if I have ever laid eyes on you. I have so much genuine love for YOU. Thank you so much for your continued support. I am excited to see what we can achieve in the upcoming new year.

You are such a blessing and I thank you all so very much!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Stephaniei! I still have a baby picture of you around here somewhere 😀 You have grown so much in the short time I have been reading you, in expression and general writing- you’re ready to do more if God so leads! Outstanding, and yes maam, thankful that He is leading you and using you for others, to bless them, bless you, and give Him glory. Really really good! God continue to bless and stir you from the inside out!

    I just put my words on here, the way I wanted to say them, and they disappeared! Your writing is hitting home in every way, from content to expression to heart! May our God continue to stir you up and use you in His outreach from His own heart, to bless others, encourage your own heart, and for His glory! Good stuff Stephanie- you’re ready for publishing, if and when He opens the door for you. Good quality stuff! I need an autograph while I can still reach you!
