Ann Voskamp Teaches Spelling.
Just dropping in to give thanks for all these many gifts from this weekend... and the week to come.
My weekend started off with a huge, huge gift…
hearing and meeting Ann Voskamp.
It was an evening of beautiful worship…
with Psalmist Christa Wells and the soulful voice of Witt Nicole.
Hundreds of women lifting voices and hearts together...
this maybe a bit of heaven on earth.
Then what a blessing to hear Ann’s words with her voice, from her heart.
So many wonderful truths…but I will share just one…Ann is helping her son decode...he asks is it "i before e"in receive ...Ann doesn't remember the rule because of the "c" but if the I comes first you can’t receive.”
How many years have I taught spelling?
I have never seen this simple truth in everyday spelling lesson.
This weekend our family did something very different…
our men(except SIL) headed out to spend a week in Window Rock, Az.
They will serving on an Indian Reservation through manual labor...
and helping to run a basketball camp.
The Elliott women loaded our van and headed to Florida.
My heart is full to be here with my daughters, grand love...
and daughter in Love.
So this week, I am going to soak up this time with them...
pray for the guys in Arizona...
and soak in all God’s glory that surrounds me.
I pray each one of you have a blessed week and you continue to count all the ways He loves you.
Hearing Ann Voskamp live.
Worshiping with hundreds of woman
Getting to give Ann a hug and say thanks.
The Elliott guys getting this wonderful opportunity.
A safe trip after 2 full days of driving.
All of us girls in a car traveling together.
God giving us a rainbow as we arrive in Destin.
Driving right to God’s awesome creation…
Ellie first touch of the ocean.
Blessings press down pouring over…
