  1. i LOVE writing letters the "old fashioned" way, karen!! in fact, the one T---family member who is a Christian (Dave's father's cousin's wife!) and I write back and forth because she HATES email, FB etc and doesn't do those things! And of course I write to Courtney in her care packages. I also write to an aunt of mine who lives far away.....it is so important to keep this art form.....there is something so special about sending hand written cards and notes....Thanks for posting this and the link!

    I LOVE writing letters, and in fact, that's how my husband became my husband! I wrote a note to a stranger! :)

  3. Faith, I'm so glad that you take the time to write to people! When I get too busy, I don't do as much writing as I want to. I think I need to set a special time in my schedule for being more consistent. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!!

  4. Deb!! It is so good to hear from you! I do understand the behind in blog reading! :) I'm really glad that you like Deep Roots at Home. Jacqueline is a wonderful woman. She is very encouraging and wise (really, like yourself!) I always love coming to your blog. I enjoy all the different "homey" things that you and your girls make.
    I would love to hear about how you and your husband got together through a note!! If you have the time!

  5. Hi Karen!! Well, this is what I do. When MaryJo (the Christian Turner cousin who writes to Dave and I because she has no computer in her home!) writes me a letter, it is about every 3 months. I basically read it, savor it, pray for any of the requests she has sent, and then put it with a paper clip right in my daytimer. I then sit down that next weekend during one of my quiet times and write her back! because dave does not like paying bills online, I always have stamps in the desk. I also like to purchase pretty personal address labels. I am teaching Claire to do the same thing. When she gets a letter, if all her chores and HW is done, she sits down to answer the person.:) It works for me. For other people, I tend to jot a cute card and note when I have some quiet time, typically in the late evenings. i really do enjoy letter writing and used to do so much more before texting and emails! Maybe you could carve out a few minutes as part of YOUR quiet time....I like to think of it as a ministry tool, too so doing it after some Scripture reading is nice. I often include a Scripture or two! :)

  6. An excellent suggestion, Faith! Yes, it is a "ministry" of encouragement, love and kindness...Thanks so much for sharing. :)

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17 This is great news!
