Thriving Thursday 9/18

Don’t miss my great list of nearly 40 free books for kindle that you can get right now…all from the best publishers and authors in Christian fiction, so definitely check that out.

This week at Serving Joyfully

Last Friday, I shared about a book I have been reading and how that inspired me with a picture of what it really means to serve joyfully. I hope you will read it and be encouraged just as I was.

What does it look like to serve our families with a joyful spirit?


I also shared a brand new freebie this week, an ABC bean bag toss game that my boys love! PS–if your readers would enjoy this freebie, I’d love for you to share it with them :)

And then I shared our family’s new favorite chili recipe that I made this year with a little help from my Mrs. Wages chili base that I canned earlier this summer. Can I just say…YAY for fall weather?!? Chili never tasted so good as it does the first cool spell of the fall season :)

PS–I also shared on my facebook page that next month is a 31 day writing challenge for bloggers. Last year I did the 31 days of loving your husband intentionally. And this year, I’m considering a few different topics. I’d love for you to go weigh in on your favorite.

What have you been up to this week?

There were so many FANTASTIC posts linked up last week and I can’t wait to see what you ladies have to share this week :)

Thriving Thursdays Link Up!!!

Thriving Thursdays is a link up for family-friendly bloggers, who are choosing to THRIVE in their lives. It’s a place for us to encourage and inspire one another to live life to the fullest–in Jesus Christ. Link up your posts about thriving–in marriage, faith, parenting, homemaking, relationships, in the kitchen, in frugality.

Everything we do can be a ministry and worship to our Lord. Link up as many posts as you want, and I hope that you’ll take the time to visit some other participants as well.

I am so blessed by the posts you all share! I really look forward to seeing all of the encouragement shared here each week. Keep it coming! Sometimes I highlight posts here, and I also pin my favorites to the Thriving Thursdays Pinterest Board.


I love to hear your feedback and value your thoughts! All I ask is that we remain respectful and civil, even when we disagree. Thanks so much for reading. I appreciate you!

Thank you for joining in the discussion!
