From Messes to Messages Linkup

Even though I’m taking a short one-week vacation in the Wisconsin Dells and Chicagoland, I wanted to still offer the linkup while I’m away. I hope that any Christian bloggers will linkup below and I’ll be back to host next week for “From Messes to Messages” linkup.

I also wanted to invite you to a 4-week Date Your Mate Challenge that Steve Pare of is hosting. The challenge will include lots of freebies, tips and some dating challenges if you sign up. The challenge is underway–starting this past Monday, Aug. 13th, but you’ll still be able to get that weekly date in if you sign up soon. Click on the link to go the challenge here.

Joining with my friends at Giving Up on Perfect, Christian Blogger Community, Mondays @ Soul Survival, Coffee and Conversation, Coffee for Your Heart, Sitting Among Friends, Nanahood, Moments of Hope, Family, Friendship and Faith, DanceWithJesusFriday and Wholehearted Wednesday.

    Hope you’re having a great time, Beth! I love that part of the country, and would live there if I could. Yeah, even the winters.

    • We did have a great time, Andrew. It truly is a beautiful part of the U.S. We didn’t go to the Dells to partake in all the water parks or touristy stuff. But really loved hiking and dining while there! I think I would like to try out a “winter” there before committing, though I do love snow and colder weather over hot and muggy!

    • Thanks, Ifeoma! It was a great time, but am glad to be back.

  • Beth, God put you on my heart to just stop and pray for you and your family this morning. I pray that you are enjoying your vacation, that you travel safely, come back refreshed and that God does what only He can do in your life. Blessings!

    • Well, aren’t you sweet, Donna! Actually I did have a rough day today, so the Lord must have nudged you to pray for me because of that! I truly appreciate it and also for letting me know!

  • I hope you are fully enjoying your time away!!! 🙂

  • Alyssa

    Hi Mrs. Steffaniak! My name is Alyssa, I am one of the girls you met while hiking at Devils Lake in WI 🙂 I just came for a visit on your blog to see what it was all about. What a sweet surprise to learn that you and your husband are also believers! Just wanted to drop a comment to let you know that I was encouraged by that and will now be praying for you guys and your ministry. Joyfully, Alyssa

    • Hey Alyssa! I’m so glad you checked out the blog! Yes, my husband and I are believers and that is what I write about most often here in this space. So even if you are not married, you might glean some inspiration for your walk with the Lord or for any romantic relationships you have or begin. But most of all, your gift of praying for us is more than enough for me! What a blessing! Thanks so much!
