My sister-in-law and I just finished up a great chat about our prayer notebooks and journals and if you missed it, you can watch it right here:
It was a great time, with just a few mistakes on my part, but they all worked out. I asked Michele to go over her Prayer Notebook in a lot of detail because I know it's always frustrating for me to see someone gloss over their notebook when I want to know EXACTLY HOW they set it up since I'm such a hands-on learner!
Ialso wanted to give you a list of some of the resources we talked about. You can find the complete list on our Pinterest board. We'll keep adding all the information there, so click over if you have Pinterest and have fun pinning. For those without Pinterest, here are some of the top resources we discussed:
The Hour that Changes the World--very specific and great to those new to prayer.
A Watchman's Guide to Praying God's Promises--free when you sign up for their mailing list.
A Woman After God's Own Heart--Elizabeth George is a wonderful, sweet "mentor" I had when we were first married and this book changed my life. She is specific, clear, and firm yet gentle. Her chapter on prayer in this book is wonderful, along with the rest of the book!
The Valley of Vision--Puritan prayers that are just beautiful and inspiring.
Prone to Wander--Great prayers of confession and assurance.
Voices from the Past--Insightful and relevant writings to encourage and inspire faith and prayer.
Penny Bennett Totes--Handmade Bible sized bags that both Michele and I LOVE. High quality and meticulously made by Penny. A worthy investment that will last a lifetime.
I'd love to get feedback on what you think and other types of coffee chats you'd like to see!
