What a Beautiful product I have reviewed for Eternal Encouragement as Part of The Gabby Moms program!
I listened to the mp3's for this product more than once and will continue to in the upcoming months. You will get more info on the full product next month as we complete the review of all 5 Rs...the first two are Refresh and Rekindle... those sound like good things dont they?? Some of you may know that I have fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. What does that have to do with this review you ask, well... having these two syndromes tends to negatively impact me in the area of Godly Womanhood. Why you ask, well I am always in pain and I am always exhausted...somedays more than others and sometimes I feel ok, it makes it hard to keep my positive attitude sometimes. This product that I reviewed this month gave me so much encouragement to keep my head up and continue(the REFRESH Part) to be what God put me here for and ways I can show my love to my husband in little ways (the REKINDLE part) that take really no effort at all. I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me but I truly believe that God brought this program and Lorrie Flem's wonderful products into my life this year to keep me moving forward as I adjust to my new normal while I strive to live for God each and everyday through everything I do. Do I succeed all the time? Nope...but I keep Trying to be the Wife, Mother, Homeschooler and Woman that God would have me be and with these products I am able to listen to Lorrie encourage me to be that woman and remind myself constantly of Lorrie's words and advise to keep me on track. I love her writing and her speaking. If you need encouragement for womanhood, homemaking, homeschooling or being a wonderful and connected wife to your man check her out, she has great stuff at Eternal Encouragemnt!

I procrastinated...yup I sure did!~ Now I will be daily going over more of the info and getting all out of it I can. I just listened to the first mp3 session included in this download, which let me tell you IS HUGE!! I thought it would be a few items from the magazine I didn't realize it would be so much from Eternal Encouragement. Collections of Marriage goodies from the years with TEACH Magazine and great stuff from Lorrie Herself. Things I am hearing like "a happy content marriage is a defense against the evil in the world" really hit home. I need to put my time and effort into keeping my defenses against the enemy up and one way to do that is to keep my marriage strong, growing and fresh. There are so many great things in there, I was so skeptical going into the assignment now I feel foolish!! I should have been studying this for the weeks that I have had it, imagine the things I could have accomplished or benefited from!! There is a monthly plan for praying for your hubby which I am printing out to post somewhere I will see it daily, there are frugal and fun date tips and things to keep your spark alive. There is also Lorrie's personal bible study with all the references to marriage she has come across, I am going to take this scripture reference and study my bible, writing out each passage next to Lorrie's scripture list. Just so much good stuff I can't even list it all you have to check it out!
MARRIAGE:TO HAVE AND TO HOLD Trust me if you need a fresh outlook for your marriage or even if you think you got this in the bag, you won't regret this purchase. I am so blessed to be reviewing this for The Gabby Moms Program and cannot wait for all the great things to come from Eternal Encouragement and Mrs Lorrie Flem!

It is a great little thing that has oodles and oodles of things like REAL Words!! Words we can actually use to become the hands and feet of Jesus each and every day! How cool is that! One awesome thing is its size! It fits in my purse for those moments of time where you are sitting, waiting on soccer to finish or waiting for the doctor to actually enter the room, which we all know they make you wait sometimes for what seems like an eternity! Having something useful to read, that uplifts your spirits for the day, and encourages you to really make a difference is a great way to put that time to good use dontcha think?? It's motto line is "Inspiring Women to Become More Like Jesus Every Day". Now that is something I want and can read with integrity, not the junk you usually are left with to read in the doctors or random other offices you visit. I hope you will all take a look at this wonderful magazine, check it out, subscribe if you want or need to be Inspired to be a Woman more like our Jesus!
God Bless all of My Sisters In Christ

Well, the last couple of installments were the ones we focused on for our review, and I got great insight from both. Do you feel happy in your marriage? I am blessed to say that I do however, I have many girlfriends who have not found a way to be content with all they have been blessed with even if it doesn't seem to be that much. Finding ways to be content and happy no matter what is truly a gift when you can accomplish that this was the focus of the first newsletter I read. It gave me tools to reach out to some of my friends with and also share this newsletter with them to hopefully encourage them in their daily walk. How about keeping your thoughts in check and filtering all through Jesus? I struggle with depression as many of you know and one of the newsletters specifically focused on that, and It came the same day I was really struggling with negative thoughts...God's answer to my prayers in the second newsletter I read! As Homemakers, Homeschooling moms, and wives there are many things we sometimes just need a bit of encouragement from someone who has been there, done that, you know what I mean? Parenting is tough sometimes isn't it? Where is the instruction book for these things? LOL oh yes they did come with one did you know that? Its the BIBLE!! :) Thank God for that! If you need encouragement please, please, check out this wonderful research and try it out for a few weeks to see if you don't find the encouragement you need! You can find at at all of the links above! The first page you come to will have a pop out window for you to subscribe to the newsletter yourself! I hope you will try this out as I feel you will find encouragement and be blessed in your daily walk just as I have been! Have a blessed day all and I will Gab at ya' laters!

Looks can be decieving because inside this modestly designed package awaits articles that will encourage each of us in some way or another with whatever you may be struggling with as a homemaker, or a wife, or homeschooling mom, or you daily walk with God. Sometimes Parenting isn't easy but when we equip ourselves with tools to help our heart, soul and mind grow the task becomes so much easier and that is one thing this book defenitly brings to the table. Each chapter has a beautiful name and even more beautiful content:
Chapter 1: Jewels That Make the Heart Sparkle
My favorite article was "I'm a Homemaker...Period" so much encouragement to do the best I can each day and be what my husband so needs me to be His Help Meet.
Chapter 2: Marriages of Solid Gold
Just from the title you know there is good stuff in it. "A Time to Be Silent" that one is my fav here... I tend to overload my husband with words when what he really needs me to do is listen or just be sometimes! I am working on this with the help of the Lord and this article really encouraged me!
Chapter 3: Parenting Pearls: Practical and Priceless
Here is the one that spoke to me...be ready to giggle... "Do Your Children Rise and Call you Blessed, Or Grouch?? HA...this is so me each day and this article brought to light some of the things that I really struggle with. From the title can you figure it out LOL!
Chapter 4:Homemaking That Dazzles Like Diamonds
I Love the "Principled Housekeeping" article it starts with Keeping house is such a blessing, a ministry to the most needy and helpless among us- children. Wow I had never thought of it that way maybe I should have, maybe you already do but I know I didn't and now I do and it is helping my attitude towards my homemaking duties that I don't necessarily enjoy all that much I mean most of us dont look forward to some of it do we like endless folding laundry, or the toilet duty, or litter box beacon lol... anyway you get my point lots of good stuff in this one.
Chapter 5: Homeschooling Nuggets of Wisdom
Nuggets?? It should say Boulders of Wisdom! There is no way I could even pick my favorite in this section I read each and every one of them more than once and will keep going back to it for a long time to come I am sure about that! 9 Awesome articles= a very encouraged homeschool mom!
Chapter 6: Godly Living that Glitters
"The Jewel of Contentment" I love this one how many times when we were young mothers, maybe before you came to the Lord maybe after has the ugly head of discontent with your overall circumstance come to the surface. You found your self saying the nasty words "if only" "I wish it were different" "if he was like" "when will I get" these types of statement starters only serve to tear us down not help us out of the pit. This article has some great "get out of that pit" tools. Well I guess its one big tool...GOD.
