Weblog Gets Facelift

New look after 2 years of blogging
Spring time is a great time to dust off the shelves and clean the cupboards. After two years of faithful blogging I decided to give my weblog an extreme make over! I don't dread changes, but pushing a button that will change two years of work wasn't easy. I did it anyway and I am very happy with the results. Hope you like it too! I think the lay out is more peaceful and yes, green is a very soothing color.

Respectfully Yours on CD

2nd book now available as audio book
I am proud to announce that the 2nd book in the Ten Commandments Series is now available as audiobook through Tate Publishing. Last winter I narrated and Tim recorded my angelic voice :) at Mountaindog Music Studio in Oak View, California. That was a fun project and now we'll finally see and hear the result! If you prefer downloads, in the coming weeks it will also be available through sources like Apple's iTunes, Audible.com and others. You can do me a great favor and pre-order it now, by clicking on the following link:
I promise the book will bless you, big time!

Small Group Gathers Again

Reading and discussion of Respectfully Yours
Last year we started a small group in our home in Holland. Together we have been reading and studying the first book in the Ten Commandments Series, Sacred Sabbath. We had much fun doing so and we all learned some valuable lessons from Gods Word. All members of our group were motivated to start on the next book, but they had to wait for our return from the USA. Last week we came together for the first time in 2008 and we started our study of the 2nd book, Respectfully Yours. This book is about family life and family relations, a very sensitive and personal subject. For this book we decided to put more emphasis on self study. Each week our homework is to read one chapter and to meditate on the discussion notes, which we hand out seperately. The following week we will take time to answer questions, discuss comments or listen to relevant stories. This way we will go through the book individually at home, write down our thoughts and discuss them together in the group. Our first evening was very promising, everyone attending was excited to learn more about mutual respect between God, parents and children!
Jesus said in Matthew 18:20, where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them. That is an awesome promise!
