Glad to have you visit my little corner of the blog world! I'm a minister's wife and stay-at-home mommy.
Here you will find LOTS of book reviews, because I LOVE to read. You'll also get a little peak into our family life as we seek to raise the three gifts from the Lord with which we have been richly blessed and a little of the things I'm learning as I daily surrender to the Lord in complete trust. This life isn't always easy, but it is an adventure like no other. At the end of each day, I rest in the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Praying you are blessed by your visit with me!

Why did God create you? The Bible says it plainly: God created you to showcase His glory - to enjoy Him, display Him, and demonstrate His presence every day. Your life is not too ordinary, your world is not too small, and your work is not too insignificant. You can be a stage set to glorify God. My Thoughts:
There is a plethora of "devotionals" to be purchased at your local Christian bookstore. And sadly, many are nothing more than nice little "feel good" stories with a Scripture of two thrown in for good measure. You will not find that to be the case with A Spectacle of Glory. In each of the 365 devotional readings, you are given a portion of Scripture (more than one verse for context), devotional thoughts from Joni and a prayer prompt directly related to the portion of Scripture given. The devotional thoughts aren't nice sounding platitudes, but thoughts toward a Holy God born out of an intimate relationship with Him through the good, bad and ugly of life on Earth. Spend time with Him each day and experience a spectacle of glory!
