Welcome To Our Blog In 2016
Welcome to a new year at our SMC Women’s blog! Now that the holidays are over, we’re looking ahead at 2016 and excited to see how God will be leading, guiding, and teaching all of us women at SMC this year. A new year is a fresh start. I’m so thankful that each day is a fresh start because of God’s mercy and grace!
When it comes to fresh starts, each year we often reflect on the previous year, set some new or continued goals, and start filling out a brand-new day planner or journal book. Here at our blog, we’ve taken some time to jot down some ideas and goals for 2016, too and want to share them with you! We plan to reflect and write about new beginnings, the significance of Lent, and women in the Bible to name a few.
You can go over here to see and read about our writing team this year. We want to welcome Carin Thompson to the team this year, too! Please let us know if you’re interested in being a guest writer because we love to have other women share their stories, too! That’s why we’re here. We want you to know this is for you and your story matters.
I saw the movie The Letters over the holidays; it’s about the life of Mother Theresa. One of the things she wrote from her humble and serving heart was, “I’m a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.” That’s how we all feel as we write – for you and for the glory of God.
We hope that this can be a place for you to be encouraged as you read some stories from our writers and guest writers. We hope you can relate to the life-stories that will be shared. We hope this will bring you just what you needed to read – whether it be a smile, laugh, thoughts to ponder, or hope.
Happy 2016 to all of you and may God stir and move your heart to action as you take on a new journey of this new year. We hope to see you here each week!
