Wrapping up the #SingleTruth Blog Tour with a fun “Bachelorette to Bride” Post

SingleTruthBannerToday is the final day of the three-week Single Truth Blog Tour. My goodness, it’s been a busy and fun few weeks! If you missed any of the posts along the way, check out the recap on the Single Truth Blog Tour Page.


This new post is a great one to finish up our blog tour. Brett Wilson from The Prodigal Sister wanted to ask me some questions about the transition from being single to being in a relationship. The resulting “Bachelorette to Bride” post is different than any of the interviews I have done thus far and definitely worth reading . . . she asked tough questions that really made me think!

Brett has also agreed to guest post here at Anointed With Grace next month, and I can’t wait for you to hear what she has to say!


Also, I wanted to thank all of the participants in the #SingleTruth blog tour. You all made this so much fun with amazing content, giveaways, and reader interaction. I’m so grateful!


And a special thanks to Rachel McPherson from Beacon Hill Press who kept me from pulling my hair out and did a beautiful job organizing the blog tour!

I’m so appreciative of all the blog readers who followed along on the blog tour and got a flurry of emails as I posted each day! Be sure to check the Events page for upcoming author events and check back next week for some brand new blog content.

Happy Friday!

Friday Flair 12.18.09

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. It’s actually a new blog post at Anointed With Grace. Well, it’s a Friday Flair post . . . I am easing back into this, okay? Actually, I’m not sure I remember how to use WordPress.

I can’t really explain the season of no blogging. Lately, it has not been something that energizes me. Or rather, I haven’t had the energy or desire to sit down and make it happen. Maybe 2010 will be the year of renewed blogging.

The good news is that I didn’t totally abandon my writing. I sold another short article last week! Yippee 🙂

Okay, so here are some funny and serious things that I want you to check out:

Please read this post by Sarah Markley. It got me all choked up before my first cup of coffee this morning. And made me say in my head, “That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown!” (Also, if you haven’t read Sarah’s story—which I linked up a few months ago—please do that too).

I feel like people in Nashville have gone crazy. I really want to hear from you on this one. Does every 20th car in your town seem to have turned into a reindeer for the holidays?? Everywhere I drive around here, there are cars that have a red nose and antlers in the window like the picture below. This is the first year I noticed this particular trend. Is this just a Nashville thing or is this the new way to be festive? (I think I liked the old-school wreath on the front bumper a little better). Regardless, if you just have to apply this trendy new look to your poor car, apparently you can buy a reindeer car kit on Amazon.

Now, for a fun holiday recipe. Y’all, my mom made these when I was little and I had completely forgotten about them until Kelly posted the recipe on her blog! These are so easy to make and a great thing to take to parties (or to sit and eat by yourself without sharing).

Finally, I have to pat myself on the back and let you know that I ran my first race, the Boulevard Bolt, here in Nashville on Thanksgiving Day. I finished in 62 minutes (which arguably means I was jogging and not running). But it was a great moment crossing the finish line. And the song playing on my iPod when I crossed that finish line—Third Day‘s Sing A Song. I love, love, love this song and wanted to share this in closing:

And I sing about Your mercy
And I sing about Your love
Your goodness, Lord
Your righteousness
I want to sing…

A song of Your faithfulness
A song of Your grace
And of Your loving kindness
To the glory of Your name
With everything that’s in me, Lord
Listen to me say
I want to sing a song for You
I want to sing a song

Merry Christmas, y’all. Sing a song to our Savior on his birthday next Friday!
