Finding Calm

Over the past couple weeks, we have been getting asked why haven’t we posted on the blog lately? The answer is a simple one, we are embarking on a book study using, “Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in the Chaos” by Max Lucado. The book study came abut because my mother-in-law read the post about my anxiety and how I silently suffered. One day, she stopped over and dropped off a small bag of books for me. There were two devotionals and a copy of “Anxious for Nothing”. A couple weeks later, I was visiting Denise for a couple days and started to read it. Denise commented on how the book was on her To Be Read (TBR) list but she hasn’t picked up a copy yet. Then we talked about having an online book study and answer a couple of the reflection questions for each chapter then post it online. The idea, came into reality when I ordered a copy of the book for Denise, created a give-away on IG, and created the page on the website. With all that being said, we will be taking a couple weeks off from our weekly blog post to post on the Book Study page. We are finishing up Chapter 3 so there is still time for you to grab a copy of the book and join in the conversation on social media or through the comments on the website. We will be posting a new chapter every Sunday and blasting it out on social media. Remember to tag us @2scripturesisters and post your pictures/images/etc. as you read along.

Feed Your Spirit…God’s Call to Create

A couple of years ago Denise and I were talking about our walk with Christ and our love for devotionals. It was then we felt a calling to write together. We are both creative people, read constantly, and love to write. After several manuscripts (see A Deep, Humbling, Wake-Up Call) and my return to the workplace (see Breaking My Chains), things went quiet for a while. Then, one morning while out for a run, God planted a seed in my mind and heart. At the same time, while out for a walk, Denise had the same seed planted. When we talked later that day, the seed took root. We knew immediately it was God calling us to create together again. 

Why a podcast?

Well, Denise and I share a love for listening to stories and interviews in this platform. I have been a guest on a few about education in the past, and we figured it was our way to answer God’s call. Over the next few months, with the assistance and support from friends and family, Feed Your Spirit was taking root and sprouting. One day, during a visit to Denise’s, we spent a couple of hours in a coffee shop (locating inside a local chapel), the podcast had a format, list of potential guests, various platforms, and was added to our website. There were some bumps in the road with editing and the website, but we kept hearing God tell us to keep moving forward, His hand was on this project. After several months, weekly Skype sessions, countless texts, and a lot of learning, Feed Your Spirit is released. 

Our intention with this podcast is to share everyday stories from everyday people about how God has touched their lives. As our introduction to the podcast says, “This is about those moments in life when God’s words gave you peace, strength, or a good old dose of tough love.”
