2011 Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 19!

Hey, beloved Scripture Memory Team!

I so hope you are blessed in the presence of Christ Jesus today. I am all the way in Baltimore, Maryland serving a wonderful group of women at our Living Proof Live. Our dear Lindsee is pinch-hitting for me this time around and she also has some great information for you regarding our upcoming celebration. Her portion will pick up immediately following my 19th verse. I’m choosing my verse this round from the theme Scripture God gave us for our Friday night session here at Living Proof Live in Baltimore. I want to remember it forever. You don’t have to hear the session to see why it is enormously relevant and a powerful Scripture indeed to have hidden in your heart. You’re welcome to share it with me if you don’t have a selection ready.

Beth, Houston. “I continually look to the Lord for help, for He will free my feet from the enemy’s net.” Psalm 25:15 The NET Bible

I love you guys so dearly! OK, Lindsee, take it from here!

Girls, registration for the SSMT is flourishing and we already have over 1000 ladies registered. Praise God! Don’t stress if you’re not already registered, we have plenty of room. Registration will officially close two weeks before the event, so know that you have plenty of time. We are so excited and can’t wait to celebrate with you! When we say you are highly treasured around here, we mean it.

With that said, we have had a lot of unique questions come in that are not covered in the FAQ page so we wanted to put them here and then we’ll put them on that page as well. We hope this is helpful to you as you plan your trip to Houston in January. We don’t want anyone to feel left out or lost.

Are my children welcome to attend the celebration?
While we all know how much our Siesta Mama loves little ones (grin), and understands that some of them might be memorizing scripture with us, her teaching is specifically geared toward women 18 and older. Please use caution in bringing little ones. As a reward, we encourage you to do a special party for your children if they have been memorizing with you. Make it a special time to celebrate their hard work.

Is there anything LPM can do to help Siestas in the same region connect prior to the January meeting?
We are blessed to hear you are coming to SSMT in 2012! As much as we would love to publish a regional list of those attending, we are unable to do this due to the confidentiality of each individual’s information. This is for your protection, ladies. Thanks so much for understanding. If you would like to put your Facebook page (not your email or phone number) in the comments section, we will post it, as we know you have more control over the privacy of that. We should all be very careful about what we post on the World Wide Web for all to see!

Can we do t-shirts, pink feather boas, etc to help connect with other Siestas in the airports and restaurants?
First of all, y’all are AMAZINGLY creative and fun! We love that and are so blessed by your anticipation for this special weekend. In light of these fun ideas, we have a special photo op planned on Friday evening. This will be your special keepsake from LPM for the weekend. If you want to make your own fun memory (ie. t-shirts, bracelets, boas, etc) by all means have a blast with it! We’ll look forward to seeing you in 2012!

I want to attend the SSMT Celebration, but I’m nervous about coming solo. What should I do?
Please come! We promise you will be blessed! Many women came solo in 2010 and left with new friendships and blessings in abundance. During the celebration, we will have you pair off with another Siesta sitting around you and say your verses. It will be a very rich time of celebration indeed. Don’t let coming alone keep you from coming. You will not be the only “one” coming!

Since today is the first of October, we are only three months away from the celebration. Can you believe that? We are so looking forward to January and know you are too!

Have a wonderful weekend!
