. . . and then some more . . . More life. More Jesus.

The Great Summer Slowdown {Find God With Me}

Well, it’s summer. And my kids are home from school.

Everyday. All day.

My oldest has already been to two different camps. And we just began what has been our favorite week of the summer for the past seven years. Vacation. Bible. School.

Because at Wooster Grace Church, the crazy chaos called VBS meets God-sized amazingness in ways that can only end in eternal memories seared into the hearts of everyone who shows up.

Also. My family moved about a week ago. So there’s that.

In the midst of the move, I crossed the Finish Line for a discipline journey God had me on this spring with about 70 women. A journey called reNew for which I was honored to lead the way with two other amazing ladies.

I also got to share my story with our adult Sunday school class, write some devotions, post a few blogs at the Life Letter Cafe, and help my daughter’s class turn into seventh-graders.

To sum up. I had way too much going on.

Can you say pushing overload?

That’s why this summer I have widdled my priorities down to a mere two.

  1. Finding God inside His Word. Seeking His truth with no agenda of my own except to find His way, know Him more, love Him more completely.
  2. Being a blessing to my husband and kids.

Maybe you’ve been feeling a little over-booked too. Like you need the natural break summer seems to provide. Why not join me for a Summer Slowdown?


Everything in me believes the refreshment we need can be found in the Word of God. Because that’s where we find real life, God’s plan, Jesus Christ.

So I’m going to take it slow and journal through First and Second Peter this summer. Eight chapters of the Bible in eight weeks. One chapter a week.

I’ve got some questions from the reNew journey I told you about that I’m going to use to help me focus my thoughts each day. You can click this link and use them too if you’d like. In fact some of those ladies are joining us here. (So, so, SO glad you are here, my friends!! Welcome.) 🙂

Then, each Monday, I’ll write something here about what God’s teaching me. And I will open up the comments for you to do the same. You can write a long comment or post it on your own blog if you have one and then leave us a link. I’ll visit my Brianna Wasson page on Facebook a lot too, so make sure to “like” my page so you can join in the convo.

Because studying the Bible is so much deeper and more meaningful when we share the truth He shows us with each other.

See you in First Peter!

Consider sharing in the comments . . . What’s one way you plan to slow down this summer?
