Friends, I am so excited for so many new things happening here in this space. First, I want to thank each of you for following along with me in this journey. I count each and every one of you as a treasure and rich blessing from the Lord. I seriously did not know there was this much love to be offered and freely given in cyberspace. I want you to always feel welcomed here. I strive to interact with you through comments. It’s not as easy as it use to be, but I try to respond to every comment. I count you as friends, and interaction with you is important to me. Thank you for reading and for being such a huge part of my daily life.
I hope that you enjoyed my 31 Days of Art & Inspiration series. I was completely overwhelmed by your comments. Thank you for helping me to see that I truly am an artist and worthy of the title. I hope to open up a little store around the first of the year, so keep your eyes open for that. I know many of you have asked about prints or cards, so I hope to have those available for purchase right here in 2014.
Now, on to the new!

31 Days of Coffee Talk With Jesus
It’s almost done! Can I just tell you it’s been a hard couple of weeks as I’ve been stretched to the limit with putting the final touches on this book. I am overwhelmed at your excitement. I have 26 bloggers ready to read and review! Launch date for the book is December 1st. It will be available on both Kindle and as a hard copy (soft cover) through a link on my website. Stay tuned for more info!
I was browsing the StudioPress website a few weeks ago and stumbled upon a beautiful theme (it’s name is actually “Beautiful“) and couldn’t resist. So, I got some help from a blogger in one of my Facebook groups to get set up with a test site. Another blogger so graciously agreed to help me with a few things, and has been helping me ever since. She’s pretty amazing! In just a day or two I will be unveiling a new space. It is clean and as StuidoPress states, “is a canvas on which to paint whatever online masterpiece you choose …” That phrase is what prompted me to buy this theme. Here is a little sampling of what we’ve been working on behind the scenes:
I’ve always wanted a theme with a background that I could change. I can switch out the photos for each season, or make them anything I want. Oh and I just love my new tag line! We are praying that everything transfers over nicely and there are no glitches. The site may go down for a day or so beginning on Tuesday, but if that happens, you can connect with me on Facebook. I can’t wait to share the full site with you!
Lastly, I am moving away from Feedburner as I move all of my subscribers over to MailChimp. If you are already subscribed to posts by email, I will send you an “opt in” form soon. But, you can save me a step and simply resubscribe using the “email sign up form” on my side bar. You can also follow me via Bloglovin and/or on Facebook.
I am so excited for what the Lord is doing. I’ve been leaning in to Him and know that He has good things in store for My Freshly Brewed Life up ahead.
Thank you again for all of your love and support. I write to glorify the Lord, first and foremost. But I love to write to encourage your hearts and offer you glimpses of His love and sprinkles of His grace. I truly thank God for you and pray for you often.
