I just finished up a Bible study entitled, "Me, Myself, and Lies" written by Jennifer Rothschild.

It was just a six week study (I'm sorta used to the 12 week study's with Beth Moore) and it was jam packed full of information that is essential to me being a better child of God.

I was going through and writing down some of the wonderful insights in my journal.

I thought I would share some with you…





I think one of my favorite quotes from her DVD series is,

"Guess what folks.  We're not in the garden anymore.  Life is tough."

That just about sums it up!

Blessings to you and yours.

Share with your friends!

  1. I think that can be arranged! The neighbors on our left are horrible renters and I have a feeling they’ll be out by the time their lease is up!!! 🙂

  2. your notes are just so fun to read! thanks for letting us see them! i really like the statement who you are and what you struggle with are not the same thing. i feel like that all the time!!!!! I mean i feel like they are the same.

  3. I did this study in the summer. I enjoyed it as well. It is really full of good stuff. I don’t know if I soaked it all in. Like any of her studies they are good to do multiple times I think!

  4. I’ve been wanting to do this study. I saw Bethany’s post on it earlier this year and loved the idea of it.
    That is a very thought provoking quote. Not being in the garden doesn’t make us less of God’s children, just dirtier and in dire need of a bath.

  5. Ok, this is TOTALLY about your LAST post :o) I was very impressed with the cookies/cakes/combos. Very fun! Anyway, I haven’t been online in TOO long, again. Always fun to catch up.

  6. Love it Amanda! I have started to do this on a white board my kitchen. Helps me keep focused on what the priority is.
    You know what….I also thought about taking a picture and blogging about it…like in a series of what I write over time.
    Are we like so alike?!
    Hope you have a great week!

  7. Life IS tough. I think accepting that fact is the only way to embrace it and move on with it. Besides my garden is full of poison ivy and critters anyway!

  8. My two favorite notes?
    “Who you are and what you struggle with are not the same thing.”
    “LORD! Please help me to trust You more than my feelings.”
    These are thoughts worth holding on to!!!
