    As I read my Bible study today I thought, hhhmmmm this was me just last year. This morning the author said "You can't stay where you are. There is one place God will never let you stay and that is right where you are." 
    For every Christian after God changes your life (and if you are truly born again then you are definitely not the same you) there is no more just filling the church pew any more. GOD IS MOVING YOU! He has a plan for everyone out there. I just really latched onto that last year and slowly ever so slowly His plan for my life has come into view. I have a purpose and that is Kingdom Work. :-) God has work for All of his redeemed! That is so exciting to me!!!
    One of the ways I am "working" is trying to be the best me I can possibly be and that requires me taking self out of the picture. You might be scratching your head right now and saying huh, well let me explain. I will be starting a personal study this week called Live Second: 365 ways to make Jesus first. The book is by Doug Bender, he has started this whole movement. They have a website if you want to check it out. I will be doing my best to live second or maybe even third or fourth. In other words putting Jesus first and then others before myself. Here is the info, I am second I hope you have time to check it out.

Hugs and best stitches to you all,

Hello and Welcome

This is my my first post so let me introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I love to quilt. I am a wife and mother but most importantly I am a sinner saved by grace.
Now let me tell you a little about what I hope to accomplish here on my blog. In late 2011 I started a blog called Mrs. Sew & Sew and I would blog about my quilting as well as other personal things. When I say I blogged I mean like every day! In late 2012 it was brought to my attention that my blogging (as well as other things) had taken over my life. I had been neglecting my relationship with my Lord and my family. So l decided to delete my Mrs. Sew& Sew blog. I really needed to get my priorities in order.
You might be asking why I am starting a new blog. I really enjoyed talking to people and encouraging them and in turn I was also encouraged by them. I will not be posting a lot on here but I really would love to be able to glorify my God and encourage other through this blog. So sometimes I might just post a scripture I read or something I have read in my daily Bible study. The quilting things that I post I Hope will be about the charity quilts I plan to make. (more about that in a later post)
I plan to make a new start and put things in the "right" order. That's why my theme verse if you will is Romans 12:2. I want to Renew the way I do all things. As a Christian I must put my relationship with Jesus first, then my family more specifically my relationship with my husband and lastly self. I hope to do kingdom work through the things that I like to do and one of those is quilting.
My goal is to help others and maybe bring a smile to their face with a cozy quilt that I can make for them.
Hugs and best stitches to you all,
