WOW Joanne! FABULOUS JOB!!!! I have LOTS of work to do!!


I am starting this week. We'll see how it goes! :)


Great job Mrs. Heim!

I threw in the towel for a few weeks but I am back on board. I might do every other Monday...with the Siestas...but right now, I'm hoping to stick with one a week. Let's see...Memory Monday, 5 Conversations to have with your daughter (beginning January 1 with Vicki Courtney), I'm currently on Day 77 of Jesus, 90 Days with the One and Only and will finish that up with bff, Jill and then we are SUPPOSED to begin the 90 days with David, and oh, did I mention I'm leading Esther beginning January 12. Hmmm...all of this and starting Weight Watchers and a regular exercise program,too! What AM I thinking? lol. I'm up for it. Although I'm thinking (and will discuss with JillEllen) that we might want to put off David until after Esther. She's doing Esther with a group in Montana, too.

Okay, so this week I am led to memorize Psalm 56:3,4:

3 When I am afraid,
I will trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can mortal man do to me?

I found real cute index cards on the spiral thingy and the cards are colors...seriously, it helps when the props are cute. :)

hugs and blessings...

Great job! Mine is up, too.


I have chosen Ephesians 2: 8-10 to memorize. Have a great week!


Just posted mine.


Wow!!! I've been watching your Memory Monday posts since you started, and I have FINALLY got my nerve up to try, so I posted my first verse today. Yeah!!!

Have a great week....


Tammy S.

You did great on that verse! I've got mine up for this week.

I hope all goes well next week when you start seminary. Sounds like an exciting time for you!


Wow! Thanks for stopping by Joanne. My post is up.
