31 Verses

Having trouble sleeping?  Do you want to hide God's word in your heart?  Do you want to really know the verses you are hiding?  This book, "31 Verses to Write on Your Heart" by Liz Curtis Higgs is the perfect tool to help you.  I loved reading a chapter in bed before I turned off the light.

Or you can just use it as a devotional book.  Liz shares her favorite verses with us and is candid about her own life and filling it with God's word.  A refreshing book and not too long. 

I received this book from Waterbrook Press for my honest review.

THE JAM YEARS


THIS IS OUR YEARLY LETTER.



THE JAM YEARS 2016




The FAMILY
Dakota Rose Breker joined our family October 14.  She’s grandchild #16!!  




We all met in Moorhead, MN at the Toops home New Years Eve for a  family get together!  Look closely and find JaM !



The FARM  Still farming and enjoying it. This time of the year you’ll hear the song “UP FROM THE GRAVE HE AROSE” being sung loudly & joyfully!


CALL EARLY  Book your room early for the 2017 snow and storms
If you missed it in December 2016, book now.  See snow like never before (jump of the roof into the white fluff).  Get exercise shoveling daily - the heavy, icy chucks will get you ready for a nap.  Get pictures of long wide icycles.  Enjoy cleaning snow and drifts and driving through ice tunnels.  Never go anywhere without having to walk home in the glistening  snow as your wife waits in the car for you to get the tractor and clear the road. Or sometimes go get your wife so she can steer the car out of the snowbank.  Be snowed in and watch every movie on PureFlix. Become a master at 2 handed pinochle.  Yes, it’s the winter you’ve dreamed of and JaM has lived through it to tell! Call 626-7502 for reservations for your peace and quiet.  Comfortable beds and good food guaranteed.


   The FRIENDS - That’s YOU.  May you have a wonderful and blessed year!

Taste and See

Taste and See: Savoring the Supremacy of God in All of Life by John Piper is not really a devotional to read before you go to sleep, but that is where I read it.  I really like that the 125 daily meditations are short but they are thought provoking and they are challenging and they have me underlining and highlighting and wanting to discuss them with my husband (who is sleeping already).  Piper's writing are deep and real.  He shares with the reader his deep faith and a lifetime of listening and obeying His Supreme God.  God has given him wisdom and he shares it with us boldly and pushes us to look beyond what we see and to go under the surface of our lives to taste and see God with renewed zeal.  This is not your foo-foo devotional.  Piper calls us to take a good look at our lives and the difficult world around us and to step up to be the disciples Jesus called in Matthew 28.  I received this book free from WaterPress for my honest review.
