    Precious video! Count your blessings, you big-haired women. I've lost more hair than I can count through a thyroid condition, but praise God it's coming back–layer by layer. LOL! Your study is really resonating with me, Jennifer. I think the "thought closet" approach is a wonderful and week 4 has helped me understand more how I have let some thoughts into my closet without examining them to see if they are really mine or the enemy's. May God richly bless your ministry.

    It was very sweet to leave a message for us Siestas! The study has been good and painful all at the same time. I'm so glad to be doing a summer Bible study with you all!

    Jennifer, you're wonderful! I can't tell you how this MML study has resonated with me at this time in my life. It's a great one…

    …and when you talk hair, you get all our attention! I was born with big hair and only when I lived in a desert was it straight! We recently moved back to Texas and in this 100+ degree weather I'm learning how to use a flatiron. I must say tho I do plan to try a few of your ideas!!

    Thank you for sharing the words God has given you through this study!

    Jennifer! Thanks so much for your message! I love getting to know you! I am being really blessed by the bible study you wrote. I have a RED bowl just like your BLUE bowl, and if you don't mind me saying, you have one of the sweetest laughs I have ever heard. It made me laugh just in the hearing of it! Blessings to you.

    Thank you for sending a personal message to us! You have such a sweet, sweet spirit and I can see Jesus all over your precious face!! I am really getting a lot out of this study–thank you for writing it. There are 3 of us in my group–the other two are mother and teenage daughter. This is her first "adult" type study and it is so precious to see her enjoying digging in God's Word. Her mom says she can't wait to do another one!! We are meeting weekly because we just have so much to talk about–God is so amazing!

    Jennifer, you are an inspiration to me. I have family members with the same eye disease. It is evident through your testimony that God works all things for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose.

    You are darling. Thanks for the encouragment and laugh along the way.

    I have been so blessed by your ministry. I saw you at Cornerstone in "Steamy Valley" aka Simi Valley, Ca." he-he.

    I have led Walking by Faith and Lessons I Learned in the Dark both are excellent. I have shared your testimony as an encouragement to one of my students whose son who went blind as a teen not long ago.

    Your voice is that of an angel. Whenever I think of the song "It is Well With My Soul" I literally hear you singing it. I also enjoy your womens ministry newsletter & site as a premium member. tons of helpful info.

    Thanks for all you do for the Kingdom.
    God Bless You,

    Since we are getting hair advice can someone share a product for "thickenit?" After all what good is a bumpit if it shows through? Jennifer and Beth, absolutely love the interaction for all of us with our Summer Study! Posting next about our group meeting this week in Atlanta!

    Blessing to LPM, Beth, Jennifer and all my Siestas!

    I am definetly a "flatten it" girl.
    My 10 year old son enjoyed the frozen vegetable idea. I think he is plundering the freezer right now.
    Thank you for your words of encouragement. But mostly, thank you for this Bible study. I didn't even know I needed it but boy did I.
    Things are beginning to sound a lot different in my thought closet and I've become very aware of the roaring lion and I don't plan on listening to him anymore.

    So, thanks! May God bless you and keep you.

    Hey there Jennifer,

    It's so great to get to hear your voice. You're funny and also insightful which I appreciate so much. Thanks for this study! I guess I'm one of the rare ones that neither has to bump-it or flatten-it. But I have started into my hot decade already. What a riot!

    Thank you Jennifer for taking the time to come meet us today! It has been a joy and a blessing! I am challenged to remember that
    I am the King's daughter and not what I feel.

    Shellie Paparazzo says:

    As soon as you started talking about having "too big" of hair, I immediately reached over and grabbed my bible study book to see if it told me where you were from, because I knew you could not be from Texas! As I understand it, not being from Texas, but just hearing about it, that there is no such thing as hair that is "too big". Love you, Jennifer.

    Truth! As a woman with naturally curly hair… flatten it – spoke to my soul… : )

    Jennifer – my Summer Study group has been sooo deeply blessed by your ministry and your study. Truly truly has been timely – and Jesus himself speaking to our hearts. Know that you were created to deliver this message for such a time as this.

    Be richly blessed daughter of the King

    Lauren says:


    Thank you so much for writing this study – it is profoundly impacting both me and the friend who is doing it with me. I actually had dinner with my mother tonight and told her about it, and she made sure to get the name of the study so that she could buy the book for herself, too. I told my mom tonight that I've already found myself taking my thoughts captive more quickly and feeling less a slave to my FEELINGS and more freed up by the truth of God's Word – and that is just in this short time. Thank you for your trust in and faithfulness to Jesus. Thank you for loving Him and us enough to minister to us in this way. And thank you for this wonderful video today, too. What a gift! The Lord bless you a hundred-fold for the labor of love you have offered to us. His Word will not return void!

    Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. You are a delight. I'm loving the study – it's growing me up & out of a lot of junk. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can relate to your hair issue – I've had MAJOR big hair all my life. Funny thing for me is that nowadays I flatten out the frizzies & fluff with a flat iron as much as possible, then I put a few hot rollers back in the top to "bump it" back up slightly. I want it smooth but I still got to have that 'big' on top. Aren't we a mess?! hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

    Smooth hair & Blessings….

    Leslie and Mike says:

    That video, Jennifer, certainly brightened my morning! I love the sense of humor! I am doing the Bible study and really enjoying it everyday. I love the "I AM" instead of I feel. I wrote that down. I will put it in places where I see it everyday and use it as a reminder of why I am here. Thanks so much for talking to us.

    Thanks for the video- your sold out passion to love what you do and serve God brings tremendous joy to my soul. We are destined to be BFF's. :O) I personally gleaned so much from this study and I have so enjoyed watching the interactions and reading the LPM blogs. A group and I finished the study in May – it won't soon leave our memories.

    To all my siesta's. Keep up the good work! I am praying for you during this time. God will bless you so much with this study!

    Thanks for the video….you and Beth are both so delightful and funny…you could be sisters, or at least related. Your study is certainly speaking to my heart and my thought closet. I live about 3 hours south of Springfield and hope to attend your conference in the fall. Nice to get to know you.

    missyg says:

    I love Jennifer! I remember seeing her on Praise the Lord when Kirk Cameron was hosting and I just felt my soul calm as I heard her communicate. While doing this study, I realized why. She is at peace so, she causes others to be at peace…a true peacemaker as the Bible calls us to be.

    Thank you for the amazing hair tips, the frozen food will by means get passed along to some of my older friends with their own weather system's!
    God is so good, and he is blessing me with opportunities to share him, share my talents and joy.
    Thank you for your amazing study and thank you Beth for going through it with us! You're the best!!

    Kara says:

    It's so nice to hear from you Jennifer. I've been blessed and challenged by this study. I'm a little behind and need to catch up but more importantly I want to be sure I'm understanding what I'm learning to really apply it too my life. Thank you so much for sharing your testimony and life with us.

    I myself live with Spina Bifida. I've had days where I just wanna quit, but I know this is my unchangeable lable that I need to use to help people see what Christ can do through me.

    Thanks for the laugh about the flattenit. I actually might need something in between a Bumpit and Flattenit, I don't know what that is though.

    Shelley says:

    Sweet sweet Jennifer I love you – you are in my Fav 5 ๐Ÿ™‚ Your books have ministered to me and encouraged me in dark times – you are a wonderful mentor along with Beth in my life. For many years I have been a tad bit jealous of those women who have had a mentor in their lives – I have asked for a women to walk along side of me in life and ministry but it has never happened – so I just kept on doing my thing. Well as I look back on this past decade – I see two women who have walked along side of me in life and ministry – who have shared my darkest moments and my highest mountains – who have sat with me and opened the Word to me and have spoken truth into my life – and who have taught me – you and Beth – you are rock-stars in my eyes – I just wish that I could hug your skin – thanks for putting so much into my life. I love you both dearly.

    I love the frozen vegetables idea!!! I am going through menopause and the hot flashes just keep coming! So what a cool way to cool off!.

    Love the Bible study and I am being convicted weekly on some of my issues and growing closer to my savior and refuge daily.

    Cheri says:

    That was so fun. I was just thinking how blessed I am to have stumbled on this blog a year ago. It is full of God's word, encouragement and lots of fun. Where else do you find out about "flatten it" or "bump it".

    Thank you Jennifer for sharing with us!

    awww, Jennifer and Beth, Thank you once again!!!
    Just got back from youth camp, just a few days behind on the study, and this was great encouragement!
    Jennifer, I will email you. . .but will go ahead and share this here so others can see, too. . .
    In our blog group for your study, there are 2 moms who have 9 and 10 year old daughters doing this study with us! Isnt' that awesome?
    Well, this week, while I was a sponsor at a youth camp, one of the girls in my family group, pulled my MM&L workbook out from where I had it inside a binder and started looking at it.
    I think I might try facilitating your study for teenage girls. Let me know if you happen to adapt a study specifically for younger girls.

    Thanks Jennifer!

    I have to say that this study if timely for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ VERY timely.
    Frequently, God has me STOP in the middle of a day's homework and just sit with a thought for a while before moving on. I am thanking Him right now for inspiring this study. Thank you for being obedient to Him.

    Hey Jennifer!:)

    So nice to "meet" you via the blog! I confess I haven't done any of your studies yet, but this one is most certainly one that God is using in my life in a big way! What you said about letting my weaknesses refine me is something that I'm realizing God wants to do in me. He is refining me to make me come forth purified with genuine faith. Also, thinking about who I am in Him instead of how I feel about myself is critical for me. I have to operate out of my "new creation" self instead of the old flesh nature. Being dead to sin, and alive to Christ! Bless your heart Jennifer! I think the Lord is doing a new thing in all of us who are taking this study:) Siestaville welcomes you!:)

    Blessed day to you,

    Jennifer! You are such a delight and your study is such a huge blessing! I have another idea to "Flatten It" – my teenager uses a snow/ski cap. We have no other real use for them in hot central Texas but the ski cap works to Flatten his fluffy wavy hair.

    Blessings to you!
