First of all, I would like to thank all of you for an amazing 2016; you have allowed us into your lives and helped us reach so many women with God’s word. You have filled my first year as Editor-in-Chief with more blessings than I could possibly list . The past year has been a year of growth and discovery as we have expanded our ministry efforts. Our first ever digital retreat occurred this past spring and we were able to reach about 500 women with our lessons! We know that we are just touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to using technology to reach the world and this year we will be exploring even more options.
I wanted to take a minute to share with you some of the wonderful things our team has been planning for 2017. I am convinced this will be our most impactful year yet. This year, our central theme will be “A Tree Planted by the Water: Rooted in God’s Word” based on Psalm 1. Our goal is to cause us all to have a deeper focus on writing God’s Word on our hearts on a daily basis. We will be doing this through themed articles, a special year long study of Psalm 119, Bible memorization challenges, and much more. Be sure to subscribe to our email list and follow us on social media so that you can participate in these special 2017 challenges and events!
Another exciting part of 2017 is our newest feature that will launch in January called “Illuminations.” This feature will fit perfectly into our 2017 theme as it is designed to cause you to truly dwell on a specific Bible passage. Erynn Sprouse will be writing this new feature with some help from an amazing young lady, Lauren Basham, who we know you will love as much as we do:) Each month they will be discussing the meaning of a passage and walking you through how you might illustrate this passage so that you can really root yourself in the truth of the scripture.
I am so very excited about what 2017 has in store for Come Fill Your Cup and I will ask that you continue to pray for our ministry’s continued growth and usefulness to the Kingdom. I am incredibly thankful that God has placed each of you in my path, and even if I have never met you in person, I pray for you daily.
In HIS Service,
