A few days ago I was in Walmart..... and I found this book!
I have only read a few chapters but I am already thinking about sharing this with friends. Oh my it is wonderful. Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith the lead singer of the group Selah. She has a blog~ Bring the Rain. 

I hope to share with you more as I continue to read these next few weeks. Here is a snippet that ministered to me...

It was as though God were saying, Here you are, Angie, You are mended. You are filled with my Spirit, and I am asking you to pour yourself out.

The image of my life as a broken pitcher was beautiful to me, but at the same time, it was hard to look at all of the cracks. I ran my fingers along them and told Him I wish it had been different. I wished I had always loved Him, always obeyed Him, always sought Him the way I should. I was mad at the imperfections, years wasted, gaping holes where it should be smooth.

But God, my ever-gracious God, was gentle and yet convicting as He explained. 

My dearest Angie, how do you think the world has seen Me? If it wasn't for the cracks, I couldn't seep out the way I do. I chose the pitcher. I chose you, just as you are.      ~Angie Smith ~Mended

Just wanted to share......   would love to hear about what you are reading.

  1. It sounds so good Teena.
    Praying the Father's love will embrace and fill you today. You are so special to Him.
    You're special to me too. I so appreciate your selfless, giving heart. You bless.

  2. Beautiful words! Sounds just like life...cracks & the Lord asking us to pour ourselves out & allow Him to work! Right now I am reading a book I bought from you at the CCCHE book sale "Homeschooling with Confidence." It has REALLY changed my view of homeschooling & how the DVD's & doing every single part of 1 cirriculum may be a way to start you off but not to kill your kids that way! We are alot more laid back, having fun, & still learning this year!!! :) Love ya! Can't wait to hear more about the book! Laurie

  3. I also love a good book recommendation! I just started reading 'Unglued' by Lysa TerKeurst. Kept hearing great things about it, so added it to my reading pile!

  4. Oh I want to read Unglued too! Heard great things. Let me know what you think~
