Anyone looking for a fall Bible study?



Hi friends,

Sadly, it feels as if summer is over. I know most of you young moms have your heads full with back to school and school supplies, lunches, after school schedules and the huge transition every year brings.

I want to take a minute and talk about Bible studies for the fall. Just about now those of you already in studies are getting information for the start ups. I am in BSF again this year, studying Romans, and eagerly waiting for the phone call from my new group leader.

You may be thinking that with everyone in your family off and running to new classes and new endeavors, it sure might be nice to have an hour for something you would really like to do.

Don’t forget Unlocking Belief.

It’s perfect for a devotional all by yourself. It’s ideal for a small group of women invited together for a few weeks. And for the large study looking for something a little different, Unlocking Belief is full of depth, plenty to talk about, sticks with you.


And here’s something else.

I have been missing the teaching. If you live close enough,

I would love to come to your class to kick it off, teach a week somewhere in the middle, or wrap up the study at the end.

For those far away, I’m offering the same through FaceTime.


Contact me directly for scheduling. My email is on the website’s main page and also under Book. So is the link to order through amazon.

Happy fall on the way!

Hello artists and friends,
Happy Summer!
Kristi Kelly and I (we are NextDoor Studios) are hosting the amazing Gina Brown in August for two Painting Figures workshops: 
Workshop I: August 22-23, with set up on the evening of August 21 – FULL
Workshop II: August 24-25, with set up on the evening of August 23 – 6 SPOTS AVAILABLE
Remember we will not be painting “people” but “figures,” so don’t be intimidated! With Gina’s help we can do this! After taking Gina’s class previously, I am sold on her instruction to beginners, intermediates, and advanced painters. She is the real deal! There are only 14 spots in each class, so everyone gets plenty of Gina-time.

We will accept registrations until classes are full or until August 1. After that date we cannot offer cancellations or refunds.
