Hey there THIRSTY SOULS! I pray you are enjoying EXPERIENCING (not just reading) the NAMES OF CHRIST with your group or on your own! I want to change and LEARN these names of the most powerful Being in the Universe who lived like a carpenter and loved like a shepherd.

  • You are SMACK DAB in the middle of “Living Water for a Thirsty Soul”…way to go!! Last time I really looked , the study had made it around the world and hundreds have either read the study or are using it in their small group! NOW, that’s the COMMUNITY OF CHRIST! We will study the Seven Miracles next and then write out an application from what we have learned.
  • TODAY, I have only ONE thing for you….relax, listen, and be renewed. Our good pal, Gary put my June 16 LIVE Teaching Time of the Book of John:”Living Water for a Thirsty Soul” up on my Facebook page.  (Click here to listen)  It’s 20 minutes to RAMP UP your weekend with live teaching. If that doesn’t work for you, we’ve posted it on the Grace Bible website w/ notes!  (Don’t forget to visit our Living Water Facebook page and make it a favorite!)

I love you and count it an honor to walk with you!



Hello “LIVING WATER FOR A THIRSTY  SOUL” Bible Study Friends!

By now, I’ll bet you’ve printed out your study (available here or on our Facebook page) and begun to read the Book of John. Many gals have started answering some of the questions. TODAY, I thought I would share a but with you about CHAPTER TITLES”.

CHAPTER TITLES are helpful because they help you understand the flow of the book and even begin to memorize it as you study.

Here are a few of mine…I need them to be easy to remember as I seek to learn the book!

  • *Chapter 1-“The LOGOS (Greek for WORD) and the Lamb”
  • *Chapter 2-“The Wine is the First Sign”
  • *Chapter 3-“Nick @ Night”
  • *Chapter 4- “Woman’s Lib!”
  • *Chapter 5-“Opposition Begins”
  • *Chapter 6- “Jesus Feed and Frees”
  • *Chapter 7-“Believe & Watch LIVING WATER Flow”  (Verses 7:37-39 are key verses)
  • *Chapter 8-“The People Defy Jesus”
  • *Chapter 9-“Blind Man Healed”
  • *Chapter 10-“Jesus=Shepherd”
  • *Chapter 11-“The Lives(s) of Lazarus!”

How’s that for a start for you? Just Read the chapter .Write down the things that stand out to you. Now, give it a title! Anything to help you remember that particular chapter!



How to Do Your Own Facial Mask

People ask me all the time…

“Hey, what do you do to your skin? You look only 40!”

(I always feel good about that because I am only 41!)

Through the years of gleaning “beauty wisdom” from magazines to professionals themselves, here’s a quick run-down on how to make your own  Facial Mask . These masks can exfoliate, moisturize, rejuvenate your marriage, solve your job- crisis problem,  and well…clean your face.  See what you think!

My Cheap Favorite…. The White Sugar Masksugar
I read in a magazine about a stressed-out photographer and “model prep” gal who had no materials in which to exfoliate “their girls’ faces” .
The “prep gal” reached over and grabbed white sugar packets off the breakfast trays. It did the trick…not only do “they work the best because of their cone-shaped molecular structure”. When she said that, I was sold…especially by her scientific words. I know good beauty/science intelligence when I hear it! 🙂

oatmealThe Oatmeal Mask
I do this one, also. This is designed for that “tired” skin that just needs to be reminded “Hey, you are important too!” .On a clean face, combine oatmeal and water into paste and slap it on your visage. Let it dry and voila! You have French skin devoid of all flaws!  Moisturize quickly or you will smell like breakfast, according to my daughter.

The Chocolate Maskchocolate
Seriously?! YES! This is my favorite (and other gals I know!) . Now, the trick here is you have to BUY it…but $1.50….dreamy!.  You slice open the packet and smell 3 Musketeers!  On a clean face, smear that goodness all over your face…but don’t eat it….it’s made for your pores, not your taste buds. I don’t think I can try to make it because to be honest, I just don’t like that cocoa   “semi-sweet “ bitterness smell. Go ahead-buy the real one. I promise your children will kiss you good-night happily!


The Yogurt Mask
This is real deal….everyone in the Beauty Industry seems to talk about it and recommend it . BUT, I will tell while I am a big fan of eating plain yogurt for good intestinal activity… it hurt!  I delicately applied the yogurt and it stung and turned my face beet red. Maybe it was just me , but I did not look younger or like a supermodel at the end of that experience… but, who knows? Maybe it’s just good for your gut.

Last , The Classic “Clay” Maskargile et argilotherapie
This is the one we all grew up with…fun gal pal parties with green clay faces, hair piled high in towels, and paintin’ our toes..teehee!
I loved these! My sister and I loved to do these kind of masks, but I think that they were the only ones available. Now, you can get Pumpkin seed, Aloe Vera, and Papaya.  Pretty soon, maybe they will make some for women with  attitude problems, disobedient children, and  P.M.S. ! Brilliant!

Have a great week….enjoy the FACT that Jesus loves you just the way are….in your own skin!
