31 Days of Encouragement: Hanging with the Right Crowd {Day 17}, a linky party on Thursday, and a new book club at (in)courage

31 Days of Encouragement

31 Days of Encouragement - Day 17

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
~1 Corinthians 15:33

31 Days of Encouragement This verse is relevant to all of us, but especially to parents. Even if your children are strong in their faith, don’t take chances or trust luck when guarding their hearts or character. Even though we are told to be salt and shine our lights, we are also warned that bad company corrupts.

Keep good company. I love it that my best friends support my marriage and my faith, and will offer an honest and Biblically-based opinion when I need advice.

Are you guarding yours and your children’s hearts from bad company?

Want to share your own day of encouragement?

Some of you have mentioned an interest in posting a day of encouragement on your own blog. Just create a post—you’re welcome to use the format I’ve done here, photography and scripture—and I’ll put up a linky this Thursday so we can share. Are you in?

Something new at (in)courage

At (in)courage, we’re really excited to announce the new Bloom (in)courage book club. The first selection is Ann Voskamp’s new book One Thousand Gifts, also available in Kindle ebook edition. My copy arrived in the mail on Saturday. I can’t wait!

One Thousand Gifts is on sale for $10 on DaySpring.com THIS WEEK ONLY. This is the cheapest you will find it anywhere! Just click the pic to purchase. Find all the details and schedule for the first book here, as well as information about requesting a free book if you’re in need, or purchasing an extra copy to sponsor for someone else (with free shipping!).

There’s a new Twitter hashtag—#inbooks—for book club discussion.

    I know I’m a bit late reading this series, but I love it!
    what if the bad company is your own family? we are struggling with this right now and really feel stuck between a rock and a hard place with it

      Oh, boy – that’s difficult! We had a situation years ago where a relative smoked around our first baby. We finally had to tell him that we wouldn’t come around and he wouldn’t see the baby anymore if he didn’t stop. Your job is to protect your children.
