Dose of Daily Encouragement

A dear friend of mine recently sent me an article that discussed Learning to Pray.  The commentary gave some good and new ideas on how to start the day the best way possible and I thought you might be interested in the one prayer that stood out among them all!! O Lord, grant that I […]

Contagious Encouragement

Listening to Christian radio yesterday as I sped down the highway to get to church on time (there’s something wrong with that), I heard the coolest phrase – Contagious Encouragement. As someone who is all about encouraging others, I found this phrase to be a perfect fit for what I would love to do in […]

GEM is THREE!!!

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been writing GEM for three years!  WOW!!! The time has flown and I’ve absolutely loved every minute of this new road I’m traveling! God truly works amazing miracles in the lives of those who follow His guidance.  I have firsthand knowledge of the changes, blessings and growth that can […]

Friend Picking

While reading my Facebook newsfeed this morning, I came across a title to a story that said, “Life is too short for crappy friends.”  BAHAHAHA!!  Completely made me laugh out loud!!! Basically, the article was about how to teach our children to let go of those who are bad for us and to develop the […]

Back to the Grind

I am SO thanking God for the upcoming three-day Labor Day weekend!!  You’d think with school starting this week and the kids gone for eight hours a day, I’d feel free, refreshed and at a loss to what to do with all this extra time…NOT!!! Getting back into a schedule and ramping up with school, […]

Bethany United Methodist Church

I talk a ton about what I learn on Sundays at my church and what points my pastors make that in turn stir up my own thoughts.  These ponderings (think this is a word)  subsequently lead to GEM blogs. SO, I thought I would share with you a list of questions that I was recently […]

Encourage Each Other

One of my dearest friends has been through the wringer over the past month and it’s been absolutely heartbreaking to watch.  The poor thing has had problem after problem and she just can’t seem to catch a break (insert sad face and hear my boo’s)! Needless to say, it was not by ‘coincidence’ that I […]

Happy New Year!

All of these days off during the holiday season are great, but man, I’m getting TIRED!  I think I’m going to need a vacation from Christmas vacation!!! I wish I could say I’m tired from all of the fun we’ve been having.  However, the flu is what really wiped us out!!  YIKES! Soooo, since I […]

Happy Birthday, GEM!

God’s Encouragement by Meg celebrates two years of Tuesday/Thursday postings today!  WOOHOO!  Seems strange how quickly the time has gone and how much I’ve enjoyed this blog adventure. Considering I knew nothing about writing blogs and less about my Savior, Jesus Christ – I am amazed at the growth that God has allowed me to […]

The RA-RA Session

Everyone needs a cheerleader.  Some days more than others! Tuesday was my day to hang with one of my besties by the pool and review the events that have been transpiring this summer so far. As I divulged the good, bad and ugly, she listened, encouraged, and beat me over the head with a big […]
