He is more than I could ask for in a partner in this adventure of life! The kids and I all get excited when he walks in the door after leaving the office. Why? Because he is fun and kind and gentle and HILARIOUS! Our family is complete when he enters a room. He is also intentional. He loves with all that he has even when he is exhausted with his never-ending workload that he puts to the back of his mind while playing with his kids. I truly respect him for this. He also gives me time. I don’t have to beg for it. No, I won’t go all of Song of Songs on you (you can read it here), but I just needed the world to know that I am truly blessed to be loved by Stevan Sheets! I thank my God for him daily. May I not take him for granted.
My husband’s latest blog post shares this excellent article from Pastor Matt Chandler of The Village Church near Dallas, TX explaining church membership and if it is biblical. It resonated with me and I am curious about your thoughts on the subject. I am a pastor’s wife so membership isn’t something I have to consider every time we are called to pastor a new church. We are called to a specific church therefore we become members of that church–the church we feel the Lord has chosen for us to get to know, be involved in, minister to and with, etc… I haven’t “scoped out and chosen to attend” a church since my college days. So, help me walk in YOUR shoes. Are you a member of a church? If you are, why and how long have you been a member? If you are not a member, do you attend a specific church regularly? If so, have you pursued membership, yet? Why or why not? I am truly interested in any and all of these answers. Also, what do you think of the article? Is it on or off base to you? Please share your thoughts so we can chat.
A great friend of ours, Scott Troyer, has just recently released a 5-song EP called Somewhere Between Nicaragua & New York on Amazon. You can listen to the samples and then buy the music. It’s less than $5, you’ll be supporting a friend of ours and you’ll like it. What are you waiting for?
Still not convinced you should buy it, yet? My husband is GIVING A COPY AWAY on his blog right now. Hurry to enter! Entries are only received until 5 PM tonight (March 31st)! Check out stevansheets.com for details on how to enter. Good luck! (Rumor has it that Scott, himself, has sweetened the deal!)
If you did listen to the samples or went ahead and purchased the MP3, what do you think? Let us know in the comment section.
