Happy New Year from Our Family to Yours
We pray your holiday season was filled with memory-making activities, meaningful relationship connections and blessed times worshipping our Savior.
The theme of our ministry, Love-Wise, is to connect God's Love and God's Wisdom to you, your life and the relationships you value.
The New Year is a good time for reflection and planning. At our home, New Year's Day brings a little football (we did raise 3 athlete sons!) but more importantly, New Year’s Day for us is also a time to cozy up and share some heart to heart conversation. We listen to each other as we share personal highlights, struggles, blessings and breakthroughs. We dream together of what we hope the new year might bring. We spend some time praying for each other, inviting God to lead us, guide us, strengthen and yes, improve us. We want to offer you our REFLECTION QUESTIONS so you and those you love (friends, family or just you and your mate) can spend a little time connecting on a deeper level to ring in a brighter New Year. These questions are good ones to ponder ANYTIME in the month of January.
We are also very excited about a new tool we are releasing in January - Your 3:20 Life. Two years ago, I (Pam) began praying Ephesians 3:20 over my life, over Bill and our family-- and whomever I am with at 3:20 pm! I set my phone alarm to sound at 3:20 every afternoon. I then stop what I am doing to ask that God would do “superabundantly beyond what I can ask, think, dream or feel” for the people I am with.
Sidebar: Ephesians 3:20 (The Amplified Version) Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us . . .
Sidebar: Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us . . .
To introduce you to Your 3:20 Life, the Launching Your 3:20 Year worksheet (for couples) (for women) is our gift to help you choose your Word of the Year, verse of the Year and theme for the year. Later in January, we will release the book, Your 3:20 Life, that contains a weekly plan to keep you focused on your word for the year and the goals that will make it a reality in your daily life. Your 3:20 Life will also bless and build your marriage, family or close relationships. The skills in Your 3:20 Life have helped us live productively for decades and we are thrilled to be sharing them with you.

O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling places. Then I will go to the altar of God,To God my exceeding joy... (Psalm 43:3-4)
