"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young,
but set an example for the believers
in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."
1 Timothy 4:12
Today is SerenDIPity Saturday. Not just here on Joy In The Truth, but in our home. Today is the day of our annual SerenDIPity party. We are excited and very busy making final preparations to welcome our guests this evening.
But I wanted to pause and share a surprise blessing with a few of you! After all, it is SerenDIPity Saturday!
Earlier this week I was tickled to receive a serendipitous gift in the mail by my loving friend Lysa ~ a copy of her newest book co-authored with her daughter, Hope ~ "What Happens When Young Women Say Yes To God". I will be reading this book with our daughter, Gabrielle, at the right time and as the Lord leads. And I would LOVE to share the blessing and give away a few copies of the book to share the joy and the wisdom.
As a young woman reads this book, she will be equipped to:
*Understand how to hear from God personally so she can resist the confusing pull of the world and stay focused on His calling for her.
*Develop a hunger for God's Word thus deepening her convictions to stay pure and focused on God as she makes decisions affecting the course her life will take.
*Find encouragement for living out her faith commitment through testimonies from teenager Hope Terkeurst and realize she is not alone in taking a bold stand for God.
My personal daily prayer for my children and for this generation of youth is that God would raise them up to be a generation standing bold for Him, His truth and His redemption. This book encourages young women in truth and points them to God's Word, which equips us to live our lives blameless before Him in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
Just leave a comment with your contact information and the first name of the special young women in your life with whom you would share this book. THREE copies are up for grabs. Winners will be announced next week.
Happy SerenDIPity Saturday!
"I remember the devotion of your youth..."
