I know Joanne only through her blog The Simple Wife. A couple years ago I found her blog and immediately loved her blog and her writing. But the most meaningful part of her blog to me was that she introduced me to her Memory Monday.
I was not very faithful with Memory Monday, but the tool has really stuck with me (even if I have not been doing it faithfully). In fact, when I finally got back to blogging and reading other blogs one of the first blogs I checked in on was Joanne's. That was on the 12th. On Jan 11th she suffered a major stroke and I have been praying for her ever since. I also learned that she is the same age as me and for some reason that hits even closer to home. Please join me in praying for her and her precious family - but also join me in participating in Memory Monday as a way to strengthen your own walk with God.
