It's @kristin_wall here!!! I feel a connection to this book like I've never felt before. Because I have had the blessing of intentionally praying every Monday for my dear friend, @jane_johnson, as she has written Mercy Like Morning. I have prayed with her through the naming of the book. . .and I can tell you, it was more difficult than naming a baby! Jane is one of my dearest friends & one I trust when it comes to rightly dividing the Word. She has inspired me to dig in deep... and I know her words will powerfully affect you as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I highly recommend and encourage you to PRE-ORDER Mercy Like Morning! You can find all the details on @jane_johnson profile! This book is a story about reading the Bible, and it can be your story too. We all know we’re supposed to be spending time with God through daily prayer and studying His Word. But we don’t always know how to make that happen—or how to be truly refreshed and changed by the experience. Born in a season of waiting, this comprehensive guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • study Scripture intentionally instead of picking a verse at random • turn a trickle of insight into a rushing stream of understanding • dig wells of knowledge to store up and draw from in all seasons ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Get ready to drink in living water. Discover how exploring God’s Word in fresh, full-to-the-brim ways can fill your life to overflowing. Because His mercies are new. Every single morning.
Meet the beautiful Heather, our Delight & Be community administrator! 🎉 Heather has been SUCH A GIFT to D&B and we can't even start on how much we love her, her heart, and her little Philly accent. SWIPE RIGHT to see some of her favorite things! ➡️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WHO ARE YOU & WHAT ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?▫️Hey, I'm Heather! I'm 32 years and live in a small suburban town just outside of Philadelphia. When not teaching Bible to middle schools students, you can find me loving on my family and friends with good food and conversation, embarrassing my husband, playing laser tag with my kids, traveling to Haiti or the Delight House, reading lots of books, listening to all the music, brewing all the coffee, eating all of the smores, and sitting on the beach. I love being real and getting to the heart, I now come with a disclaimer that says May ask deep and probing questions so feel free to say you don't want to answer or just ignore me. My biggest hope and dream is to see old and new generations love God & His word with all of their hearts, souls, and minds and for women to know that their past guilt and shame does not define who God made them to be. I also have a big heart for engaged & newlywed girls as they start their marriages (it's such a crazy, exciting, emotional, but really pivotol time) and building that foundation in the Lord. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ THIS YEAR?▫️Do you know what you are asking me to do? Best Fiction: Dear Mr. Knightley. Best Nonfiction: Fervent, Adorned, Unseen, or Nothing to Prove. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WHAT IS ONE SONG YOU’VE HAD ON REPEAT LATELY?▫️ The entire Refuge album by Bethany and Chris Solyntjes, Ellie and Drew Holcomb, or Lecrae (I told you I can't just pick one). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Isn’t she just the best!? 😍 We are so grateful to have her apart of the team!! We’d love for you to leave her all the love and let us know what one song you’ve had on repeat lately too! 👇
What would it look life if you woke up every morning and decided to put on love, just as if it was apart of your morning make up routine? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving each other. ✨ And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. — Colossians 3:12-14 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be the girl who wears love on every @target run, every business meeting, every coffee date, every trip to the grocery store. Leave people better than you found them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be the girl who puts on love. | #bethegirl
Throwing it back to an oldie but goldie, our very first #delightworkshop at the @delighthouse! Sweet @erinedrysdale shared this story and we can’t wait to have her back at the Delight House for the third time NEXT WEEK for our [Be] Content workshop! 😍🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three years ago this week, I flew across the country by myself to a workshop, at the cutest little house, completely surrounded by the orchards and mountains of Washington State. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At that workshop, I learned incredible tips on how to run a business from a few different beautiful, talented, and influential wedding photographers 😍💗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One memory from that week that has come to mind several times recently, is actually leaving the styled shoot in tears 🙊 The sweetest leader (who I adore to this day 😭💕) encouraged me to step forward and pose the model couple by myself. In a moment of fear of failure and just pure exhaustion, I totalllly lost it. At that point, I had second shot ONE wedding and done ONE couples shoot a year prior... posing was definitely not my strong suit 🤷🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Lord has used that moment from three years ago as a benchmark for many different seasons of my business. When it feels like growth is slow or if I’m lacking confidence, I have that moment to look back on to see just how much God has helped me grow over these few years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My prayer is that you, sweet friend, are able to look back at the scary and uncomfortable moments of your life to remind yourself of how far you have come. 💗💗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — @erinedrysdale, a Delight girl
Persevering is not denying giants or pain or or hopelessness or crazy awful circumstances. It’s fighting the good fight of faith. Finding hope in what isn’t seen and fighting for it. Perseverance stimulates what faith I have and allows me to overcome the effects of the lies I am believing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In every trial, I am developing perseverance. The more I don’t give in, the more I press in and press through and hold onto the eternal truths I know deep in me, the more I overcome, and the better my character. The stronger my faith. The bigger my hope. The fuller my joy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ― @homespunkate ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻 image: @kateshrine
