    I was using my iPad notes for a spiral but for some unknown reason deleted the whole note with all scriptures:( is there some way for y’all to pull up all my scripture posts using my name ( the only one I have seen on your site) or an easy way to search for them myself.
    Thanks and if not that’s ok

    I was so hoping to be able to join in this special celebration. The good news/bad news is that I got pregnant this year and I’m due December 29th! Okay, so it’s not bad news at all, but I will miss getting together with everyone! Don’t worry, my goal is still 24/24 verses!!

    (Excuse me, pardon me, as I make my way through all these siestas standing in line from all their hard work from this year.)
    How ’bout those of us who’d like to officially begin the scripture memory in 2012 (though I’ve begun now for the rest of this year as practice :). Will there be a similar challenge, another year filled with fellow siestas memorizing scripture as well?

      I have the same question. I’m so bummed that I missed this one. But I’m going to start as of September.

      The last time Beth did this was two years ago, so if she does it the same way, it would happen again in 2013, not this next year.

    Yay! So excited. Registered for the event and booked my hotel too! Now shopping for airfare. What a blessing it’s been all year memorizing scriptures along with all of you Siestas! You’ve kept me accountable and made it all the more thrilling!
    See you in January,

      Michele says:

      Definitely come!!
      At SSMT1, I went alone, didn’t know anyone. Siestas were supposed to wear pink boas. I went out for dinner and asked the hostess that if any people came in with the pink boas and wanted to sit with someone, they could sit with me.

      Three Siestas came in and the hostess brought them to my table. From then on, the four of us spend much of the weekend together!! It was a great time! I was so thankful for my new friends.

      One of them is now a very dear friend of mine. Even though we live 1000 miles apart, she was the only one there for me in my darkest hour and she blessed me abundantly by inviting me to come visit her last year. I stayed at her house and she treated me like royalty – we even had a FANCY brunch with her Bible study group! It was such a huge blessing!

      So come, God will give you some new friends!!

      Hi Ingrid, if you click on the Registration link there is an FAQ section on the left hand side with location, dates, hotel info, etc. (We will meet at Houston’s First Baptist Church.) Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Colossians 3:1-4 NIV
    Since you have been raised with Christ, set your heart on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

    I like the FAQ about the event that states, “The Siesta Scripture Memory Celebration Event begins Friday, January 20, 2012 at 7 pm and will conclude Saturday, January 21, 2012 at noon.” I completely get what it means because I went last year. It just makes me laugh because it sounds like a very long night! LOL Wouldn’t that be fun if we all came in pajamas for an all-nighter?! -Lynnette

    I can’t wait to meet everyone and visit Houston. I would really like to find someone from the Northwest to travel with though that would make it even more fun. See you all in Jan.

  27. 77

    Just wondering would it be ok to register if the plan to come is tentative or would you rather us wait until it is for sure? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Ladies. I would like to join. I am new on here and I not sure how the Siesta group works. If someone would fill me in I would appreciate it. Also I am shy at first and I would be coming alone unless I find a friend to come with me. Any information would be wonderful.
    I am checking in from Alabama ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pam says:

    First and foremost to all my Siesta’s…I need prayer. I have memorized 15 scriptures without fail. When I got to the 16th one my mind became totally overwhelmed and I missed posting. I just posted the 17th one but I am struggling here. I have overcome so much this year but starting to feel defeated. Please send prayers my way–I want to finish this journey.
    Second–to attend the event in January–did the scripture have to be posted exactly on the date–the 1st & 15th? Really want to come but do not want to attempt it if I am not qualified to attend.

      Kimberly says:


      Just said a prayer for you. As I tell my daughter, just remember “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” I know you can do this. Don’t let satan tell you otherwise! ;o)

      As to your question, no the scriptures don’t have to be on the exact date. There were many times I posted the day after for whatever reason. You should be good, just keep going. ;o)


      • Pam says:

        Kimberly-thank you so much for the much needed prayer. I appreciate your kindness and look forward to hopefully registering soon!
        Thank you again,

    I’m all registered for SSMT and now about to book a hotel room and look for a good plane fare. So excited to be attending with my wonderful sister Judith from NC. We were there in 2010 and had so much fun meeting up with our siesta friends, listening to Beth, Melissa,and Amanda and singing with Travis. WhooHoo ๐Ÿ™‚

      Wish I was coming! I lived in College Station for two years and would have loved sharing a room with you! But I think I have decided against the airfare. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still working on the verses, though. Have fun.

    My mom and I are planning to come ๐Ÿ™‚ We called the Holiday Inn Express right down the road and got a room booked. Thanks for all the info on the registration faq page ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. 90

    Okay – I registered even though I don’t see how in the world I’ll be able to attend. I’ve no money for a hotel room, airfare or for gas to drive there! I figured I would go ahead and register, though, because I know that my Father is really good at providing at the last minute if it is something HE wants me to do ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope I get to see y’all in January but, if not, so be it – HIS will be done ๐Ÿ™‚

    melanie says:

    I have studied your “Fruits of the Spirit, Patriarchs, Daniel, David, Esther and Psalms ascent studies. I love you and your books. You have helped me to look at the word of God so differently than ever i had in the past. I am a gardener. I have been for the last 12 years. In the last few years the Lord has spoken so often to my heart about how the garden of Eden, gardening, and a gardener are so important to remember. I have been studying His word and the elements of my job for the last 3 years. i have been writing and studying trying to look at the Lord’s word as you have shown me i could.
    I have compiled a study i am going to share with my church this winter.
    i would love to share it further. Do you have any recommendation how to approach finding a publisher or even editor to look at what i have written and possibly help me to look more deeply at it or turn it into a study i could share. i have been writing articles for our church newsletter. i would love to share to give you an idea of how i write, if you would like to see them. But mostly i’d just love for someone to show me how to move forward and share what i know is from the Lord. Thank you so much.

    Sue Bragg says:

    Sue, Kingsport. I would love to come to the SSMT event, but at this time, I won’t be able to do so. Like someone else mentioned, I started off so well, but I’m getting later and later with my scripture posts. They aren’t sticking in my brain very well either. I will continue to try to memorize, and will be so sad not to attend. There is also the matter of the expense of flying and having to travel alone. I hope you’ll post pictures so those of us who won’t make it will feel a bit included.

    Carol Bruntlett says:

    I am trusting and praying that God will get me there I have my spiral filled with verses and I am ready to go in Jan 2012 if anyone is coming from Albuquerque NM let me know would be fun to meet up with somebody from here to go with.
    I am so excited and I just can’t hide but I think I like it. Oops got off the subject just so excited.
    Thanks Mama Beth and LPM you all rock and KMac you are awesome to.
    Praying myself to Houston thank You Lord

    Barb says:

    I have to say that I am very sad that I will not be able to attend this SSMT gathering! ๐Ÿ™ My sister & I have been participating with the idea that we would attend but family circumstances have happened & they need tending to, so that will make coming to the gathering impossible. But I am faithfully memorizing anyway!!! Hopefully the next time, I will be able to attend with my sister and my daughter!!! I hope there will be some great notes & pictures about the whole event!! love to all, Barb

    Hi KMac,
    Miss you! Looking forward to event – first time for me to commit to accountability for scripture memory. Has been really good for me, just wish my brain would cooperate better.
    Thanks for doing this!
    Love to all,

    Is there any way of getting a list of Siesta ladies from the Lincoln, NE area? If any of you from Lincoln see this feel free to e mail me at [email protected].
    Would be great to have a group of us go together.
