Hey you all,
It's been a long while since I have been able to post on blog. The only things I really had been posting was just my YouTube videos, and now here of late I haven't even been able to manage that.
Life has been busy. Here is what's been going on in my life.
Homeschooling. Housekeeping. Working on my book. Organizing and packing for our trip to Texas.
Then our trip to Texas. Unpacking. Back to schooling. Back to working on my book. Schooling. Book editing. Schooling. More book editing.
That's been my life.
But good news! My book is nearly ready for uploading to the global network!
Holding on to Hope - A family's story of loss and the hope that keeps them going.
Yes, almost ready!!! And I can't wait for it to go out and bless those God has attended for it to. It will be ready by Thanksgiving . So start looking for it soon.
I haven't been doing much for videos lately on my YouTube, but I do have several there that I have not posted here on my blog. So if you want to see what I've been up to please check out my YouTube channel. Mae Renfroe - YouTube
Something new. I have the opportunity to be a guest on some podcasts. I'm very excited about that, and to be able to talk about my book and my hope in God that has kept me going. I can't wait to see what all God has in store with this book and our story!!
In Him, Mae.

So happy to announce my newest book release here!
As For me and My House, Volume 2
Unfortunately it does come slightly imperfect. The front cover title of the book is a little hard to see.
As well as few typo errors inside. So I may yet get those fixed and upload it again to the global network.
But otherwise it's ready for you to read, enjoy, and be inspired and encouraged --from my home to yours! I am confident you will be blessed!
In Him, Mae
As we are about to start off this new year, I have been reflecting back over this past year and about how much we have to be thankful for. Wow, so much. So many things, in so many different areas, and in so many little details of our lives. It’s amazing to see God work in our lives. His goodness and faithfulness. God is good all the time, and all the time God is good! Praise the Lord!
Just one of the many things I am very thankful for is the volume 2 book of, As For Me and My House. I am thankful that it is finally finished, and will soon be ready and available for purchase. It takes a lot of effort and time to do the self-publishing as I do. But I am thankful for that too. Self-publishing has been the only option for me in getting my books out there for you.
I pray this book will be a blessing and an encouragement to my readers. That the messages held in it will inspire and challenge, as you walk with the Lord and raise your children for Him. As a mother, you have one of the greatest roles there is. Never underestimate the impact you will make on their lives for eternity. This is your destiny, and you are made for this.
As you step in to this new year, I pray that you will be inspired to be and do all that God has for you. That you will be bold, courageous, and confident in Christ. And that you will know without a doubt who you are in Him. You are a daughter of the King, set apart for His use, a new creation, loved, accepted, forgiven, no longer a slave to sin, and an ambassador for Christ. May this shine forth brightly in all you do, and everywhere you go! Because you are special, you have Christ dwelling in you!
I also want to encourage you, if you a feel God’s calling on your life in a certain direction, I hope you step into this calling with boldness and confidence. If you have this burning passion in you that you just can’t get out of your head and heart, then I hope you pursue after it. And don’t let fear stop you from doing it, and achieving it.
Joshua 1:9 (KJV)
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
If you have a God-given dream, then go for it. And know He will not call you to something without giving you what you need to accomplish it. We read what Jesus did with his disciples in Mark chapter 6; He called them, He equipped them, and He sent them. He is doing that for you and I too. So let’s step into what He has for us and that desire that He has placed in our hearts, with all courage.
Let’s make this new year a year of change, a year of more, a year of boldness, a year of courage, a year of transformation, and year that we fulfill your dreams.
If God gave you the dream, He will make it possible! Just keep dreaming, keep believing, and keep trusting!
May you stay humble, stay focused, and stay blessed!
Wishing you all the best in this new year!
In Him, Mae
I have made a little video sharing about my books. So I am happy to have that available here for you to watch. This is only the second video I have made. My other one I just did about the same time and is about the Ladies Retreat I am currently in the process of planning. You can see that one over on my retreat page near the bottom of the page.
You will be able to tell that I am not use to making videos like this and was feeling a little uncomfortable to say the least speaking to and empty room and a video camera! ( I chased all my children out of the house except my little one while making them, because I knew they would make me laugh and make too much noise!!)
I think though I enjoy making videos and will make more in the future for my web-site. I think it would be neat to do video blog posts, as well as other ones such as teaching videos, ect... So look for that for the future of my web-site ministry. I am excited what the Lord has for me!!
Untill next time,
In Him, mae
I first read, or mostly read anyway, the book by Steven Chapman "Between Heaven and the Real World". In it he talked about the loss of their daughter. In the back of the book I seen that his wife had written a book on their story too, "Choosing to See". So I quickly had my oldest son find and order it on Amazon for me. It arrived yesterday, and I immediately started devouring it.
I can tell this will be a great read for me. Just what I needed about now. I even looked up her web-site and went to the contact page and sent her a message thanking her for writing the book and sharing her story.
If you have been through the loss of a child as well, I am sure you would find it a blessing too.
I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Paul, of 21 years. Mommy to 9 blessings, ages 21 to 2 years. Our 2nd oldest son, at age 14, has gone on to be with the Lord on April 19th, 2017. I share about that new road we are on here on my blog.
My first 7 years of blogging.
Great inspirational reading!
