We are so excited to be beginning our fourth year, here on CN! We have read all of your comments for suggestions, and although we cannot do everything everyone wanted, we hope that the changes we have made are viewed as positive, encouraging, and helpful.
We have increased the number of recent posts on the left of our blog to reflect the last 15 articles published. That will give you a history of almost the last month’s worth of posts. We have also increased the number of recent comments on the right side of our blog to fifteen as well. That will show you where most of the conversations are taking place at that time.
We will be keeping our Tuesday Polls and Friday Sentence Starters. We love how these two features encourage interaction on your part! It’s nice to see everyone’s different perspectives, and sometimes these things are just plain fun to participate in 🙂
Wednesdays will still be our open days. We use Wednesdays from time to time to make announcements or let you know about something special that has come up. Thursdays will be a day for regular blog posts from us. Sometimes these will be topics of our own choosing and other times they may come in the form of a Q&A because of an email from one of you. We might even occasionally take Thursdays as an opportunity to direct you to previously published articles where we have new insights or there has seemed to be an influx of participation in the comment section.
That leads us to Mondays…and our newest feature that we hope many of you will help us with (and a couple of you requested). We will be starting our own book study group! We will announce ahead of time which book we will be reading and discussing, and then we’ll give you a couple of weeks to get your hands on a copy of it! Once the book study gets underway, you’ll be asked to read a chapter or two each week, and then come back to us on Mondays for discussion on those chapters! We three will take turns picking books, and Cumingirl is going to be starting us off this year with a study on the book: Sacred Sex by Tim Alan Gardner. We’ll start off the study with a discussion of the Introduction and Chapter 1 on Monday, January 31st. That gives you four weeks to get yourself a copy of the book and read the first chapter!
Book Studies are only successful if people participate, so go ahead… let your hair down and join us on Mondays to voice your thoughts on what we are reading! We are hoping for lively and intriguing discussions. You ladies are already so uplifting and encouraging with one another on the Prayer Request page and on other articles, so we are hoping for some nice participation here too! Of course the discussion can and will continue throughout the rest of the week as well, but the following Monday we’ll be adding chapter 2 to it!
If you have any follow-up questions you can ask in the comment box here, and we’ll try to answer or clarify things for you. We’re excited about this New Year and we hope that you are too!
