I like free.
Some people say you get what you pay for. I've got to disagree. After all, the grace of God is a totally free gift, and yet, you can't deny it's great worth!
Now there are other things that are free that are definitely not equal to the grace of God, but are definitely worth it. One of the newsletters I look forward to each week is the Encouraging Moments Newsletter from http://www.homemakeingwithteach.com/. Encouraging Moments Newsletter is sent out by Eternal Encouragement Magazine (formerly TEACH Magazine).
Each week, the newsletter encourages and challenges me to be free to become the wife and mother God wants me to be. Lorrie Flem is always spot on with what she shares. How can you go wrong when you open a newsletter and come face-to-face with things like, "Marriage isn't supposed to make it happy. It's supposed to make you married. It's your job to make your marriage happy and satisfying."
I'm doing this review for The Gabby Moms, but regardless, I want to be honest with what I think. I truly appreciate all the growth I'm challenged and encouraged to undertake as a result of Encouraging Moments Newsletter. I truly have shared articles on my blog previously.
I only have two very minor dislikes. I don't like the new format, but that is just a personal opinion. There is nothing wrong with the format, I just don't like everything listed in a single column. It just makes it hard for someone of my...well, "maturity level" to tell where one thing ends and another begins.
The only other thing I don't like is something you won't miss since it's no longer there. The newsletter previously included a little post entitled "Spurgeon Speaks" which was a quote about parenting or mothering by the "Prince of Preachers" Charles Spurgeon. I miss that. He was such a wise, godly man.
All that said, while I get dozens of free newsletters, there are few I would make the effort to recommend. Encouraging Moments Newsletter is one of those I'd recommend. To start your free subscription, just go to http://www.homemakingwithteach.com/. In the upper right corner, you will see the box to enter your email address. Oh, and no, you won't get a lot of junk email as a result.
So, if you want something free in addition to God's grace and butterflies, sign up for your Encouraging Moments Newsletter!
