Praise and Coffee

If the title caught your attention then you're really going to love where I'm going to send you now. But first a sweet little story.

Once upon a time (I know not when or how) I stumbled across a blog bearing that title. Praise and Coffee. I loved the sound of it. What's more, the author had a fun writing style and her encouragement to women was so inspiring. I loved her challenges to wives for their marriages. I loved, loved, loved her passion; which means I love her website, I love her ministry... yeah, I pretty much love her.

Our paths managed to cross somehow on that lovely social networking site known to the world as Facebook (once again, I know not when or how). I soon learned this dear gal had a patriotic heart as she offered her support and prayers to me as I struggled with the loneliness of my husband's absence.

One such way she demonstrated that was when I commented on how cute, cute, CUTE! the coffee mugs she had designed for her ministry were. The next thing I knew, there was one delivered to my door step along with a packet of coffee and a sweet little note. Her kindness meant so much to me. She is who she says she is.

{And they all lived happily ever after. The end.}

So take a moment and visit what must be the most welcoming site on planet earth -- Praise and Coffee -- and be inspired to be the woman God created you to be. You won't leave without a good heart-warming. (For best results, enjoy a cup of coffee while there.)

[Insert disclaimer about this not being a really-super-cute-coffee-mug give-away site.]

Some day I'm going to go to one of her Praise and Coffee nights.

Brittany! I just left you a comment and I think it got deleted, so I apologize if this is repetitive. I don't know if you remember me, but we used to be blog friends back in your Feminine Espresso (is that what it was called?) days. I have peeked in on your blog now and then and I am so excited that you are about to have a baby! I just had a boy 7 months ago, and he is such a joy. Congratulations and I am excited you are posting regularly again! Adding you to my reader now. :)

P.S. I <3 Small Notebook. So functional and realistic and simple. And I love your grateful series!

What a sweet story! I’m off to take a look at her blog.

Yep…sounds like we do pretty much the same thing while our guys watch football. I kind of like the alone time! I work from home and am alone most of the week but I’m working so having a little weekend time to crank the music up and get my craft on is nice….for a few months at least. Our neighbors have a HUGE projection screen in their media room so I think he’s pretty much in hog heaven when he goes over there.
