From Exhausted to Energized

Have you ever thought about the process of becoming friends with someone? 

You probably met in a "accidental" way, maybe making contact 2 or 3 times before sitting down for a real chat.  As the relationship grew, so did the trust between you and your new friend.  Eventually, you feel like you've known her forever and don't know what you would do without her.

Friendship is a give and take relationship.  Hopefully, your good friends are always there to lend a helping hand, give encouragement and pray, grieve and celebrate with you...........and you do the same for them.  Friendship is a two way street.

My friend Lorrie has been like that for me.  Although we've never met, she is such an encouragement.  She is a mentor to me, leading and guiding me in the nuances of godly womanhood and parenting.  It began in a happenstance way....reading some of her magazine articles and listening to an audio......but our relationship has developed into a working partnership and email/blog friend.  I pray for her and she for me.  I've never had the blessing of meeting Lorrie face-to-face yet.  I know that if it never happens here on earth that it will in eternity :)

I was blessed last week to have Lorrie join me at my kitchen table.  I listened as she encouraged me in my calling.  How did this happen, you ask?  Lorrie has a new format!

Lorrie Flem is on DVD!  From Exhausted, Irritable and Overwhelmed to An Energized & Fullfilled Woman of God  brings Lorrie, in all the wonder of DVD, to my kitchen table, living room, where ever I am when I need that little "lift".  This topic seemed like a total life overhall for me.  Some of the topics include: Eternally Minded, Library Rules, and Singing Thank You's.  Not just touching on these topics (8 in total), Lorrie fleshes them out bringing fresh ideas and encouragement to frustrated, bedraggled moms just like me (and YOU!)!

Also included on the DVD (which can be found at for $19.97) is a viewer's guide containing a topic outline and scriptures references that Lorrie used.  I must confess that I was so excited to watch the DVD that I skipped checking out the viewer's guide until after the movie so I took my own notes :)  Lorrie thinks of everything!  (even when I am too impatient to realize it!)

So, what are you waiting for?  Do you need some encouragement today?  Head on over and see Lorrie at Eternal Encouragement magazine and check out everything that she has to offer.  You will be so glad that you made a new friend today :)
