writing notes of encouragement

Every Woman Needs Encouragement

This guest post was first publicized on the blog at frazzledazzlemama.com; written by Teresa Martin. Is it selfish of me to want someone to encourage me?  As I am a mom, I am often found in the role of the encourager.  Through the years, I’ve encouraged little ones to try a new food, to try to ride their bike without training wheels, to try a new skill, a new sport or activity.  A mama’s “well” can get pretty low sometimes.  Every mom needs a chance to get filled back up so she can pour back out.

Obeying God in the Grocery Store

Guest Blog Post from Lauren Holmes who blogs at The Naturally Inspired Life I was waiting in line at the grocery store, and the girl in front of me checking out said to the cashier, “you’re gonna hate me…I forgot all my cards at home.” I watched her go through her wallet twice, (no cash or cards in there,) and was on the verge of tears.

Replenish 2016: a successful event!

Replenish Festival 2016 was yet another awesome year as we had a huge attendance on Saturday evening and several individuals who answered the call of Christ on their hearts and confessed to follow Him. Building 429 and JJ Weeks Band were our headlining artists. Building 429 pulled out all the stops with their stage show of lights and pyrotechnics, but Building 429 isn’t all “show”. They are genuine guys who took time to share with festival goers. The JJ Weeks Band also shared their hearts again as they returned for their second appearance at Replenish. You couldn’t ask for a…

Replenish Ministries Supports Church Plant

NEW CHURCH PLANT IN VERMONT Replenish Ministries is pleased to announce we are helping support a church plant in Vermont!  Statistically, Vermont is the least religious state in our nation.  Answering God’s calling and with a great leap of faith, Ricky Vest took his wife and children north, hours away from their own families.  They rely on funds from ministry partners to support them in this mission field.  For more information, please click this link and feel free to make your own donations of support.
