I'm totally almost famous

If you're visiting from Lysa TerKeurst's Made to Crave webcast, welcome! I am so glad you stopped by! Don't forget to enter the giveaway (three prizes - 2 books and the DVDs!). The contest is open until noon tomorrow (MST).

As well, I would be so honoured if you would hang out for a few minutes, browse through a few posts, and (hopefully) decide to stop by again soon! (In the giveaway post, you can find links to some other posts you may enjoy, as well as a little hint at what's coming up this week.)

In my post yesterday, I forgot to share something special with you. It's so precious, I cannot believe I overlooked it!

Wait for it...

Imagine the suspense-building soundtrack...

I was quoted in Made to Crave! Yes I was!

You may not realize it's me, due to some confusion that resulted in a shortened version of my blog name (which is ET @ Titus2:3-5) being attributed with the quote. But if you know me and read what I write with any regularity, you'll recognize my "voice" in the quote.

So yeah, I'm totally almost famous! ;-)

My friend E. Titus sums up what i am discovering as well:

When I get all caught up in how unfair it is that my friend is skinny and doesn't have to work at it, how she can eat what she wants when she wants, and how much it stinks that I can't be like her, I remind myself that God didn't make me to be her. You see, He knew even before I was born that I could easily allow food to be an idol in my life, that I would go to food, instead of Him, to fulfill my needs. And in His great wisdom, He created my body so that it would experience the consequences of such a choice, so that I would continually be drawn back into His arms. He wants me to come to Him for fulfillment, emotional healing, comfort - and if I could go to food for that and never gain an ounce, well then, what would I need God for?

  1. Congrats girl!!! I am so proud of you! Seriously!

    I am praying for you and your ministry!

  2. That is a great quote she used in her book and rather funny that she called you E. Titus.

    I have always wanted to know someone who it totally almost famous. :)


  3. Well said! I would quote you in my book, too! If I was an author and if I was writing a book, that is ;) It's a much better perspective than the "it's not fair" attitude that it's so easy to have. God really thought of everything, didn't he! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. Well done, E. Titus!! (hee hee!)

    I did hear "your voice" in that quote! You have a wonderful way with words. I saw my own struggles in what you said about the way God created you to hunger for him...

    I don't have the "cravings" struggle, but I do have the "affections" struggle. If love and relationships were easy-peasy, I'd need Him less... and what good is that?!

    Makes total sense!! Thanks for the transferable insight!!

  5. I would just like to state, for the record, that I loved you to pieces BEFORE you were totally almost famous. :)

    But seriously, I'm so proud of you. And I'm not surprised...at all.


  6. Yeah, way to go Tyler!!! I'm so proud of you! And I agree with Danielle, I'm totally not surprised! God has big plans for you my dear!

  7. I soooooooooo heard your voice! how cool is that love it can't wait to read the book!


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.
