Hooray! New Facebook Options for SSMT!

Hey Ladies – it is almost time to post your 2nd verse on January 15th! How are you doing with your 1st verse?

The January 1st post was super fun! It is wonderful to see all of your names and verses. I love how you all encourage one another!

And listen, we know how hard some of you had to work to get your verse posted! Way to persevere!

The blog truly could not keep up with all the traffic; many of you experienced delays and/or slowness. Then many of you (bless your heart) could not find your verse to confirm it was posted. Staff had the pedal to the metal to bring in (moderate) these verses, and then did a few “search and confirm” requests.   What a ride! Smiles.   BTW:  Beth took 1st place for bringing in the most comments – go Beth!

Ok, so with hope of making all things easier, you now have posting options. You can…

1. Keep with the LPM Blog – Meaning you post your verse as a comment for the SSMT Blog post, just as before – same format (name, city, verse).

OR

2. Post on the LPM Facebook  – Meaning you post your verse as a comment on the SSMT Facebook post – same format (name, city, verse).

Either way, have a blast!

We are thrilled and thankful to share this year of scripture memory with you!


Q&A

• Do I have to have a personal Facebook page to leave a comment on the LPM Facebook page? Yes.  Facebook has a “help” section which will show you various options that include making your Facebook page “private”.

• What is the Facebook name? Living Proof Ministries with Beth Moore

• Will the Facebook be exactly like the Blog? Yes, LPM will post a duplicate of Beth’s Blog post on the 1st & 15th of each month in a Facebook “Note”.  The “Note” will post on the timeline, just like a normal post.

• What is a Facebook “Note”? “Notes” are put in a section of Facebook which will provide an easy to find section on the LPM Facebook page for SSMT 2015.

• How do I find the “Notes” section? On the Facebook page you will see the menu bar (just to the lower right of Beth’s picture):  “Timeline”, “About”, “Notes” – select “Notes”.

• How will I know when a Facebook “Note” has been posted? Depending on your Facebook settings, you will receive a Facebook notification whenever a new SSMT Note is posted.

• What if I am already signed up for email notifications with the LPM Blog? Great! It is fine to stay signed up. Blog notifications auto-send after a new blog is posted so you would likely see this new post in your email inbox the evening of, or day after a post.

• Will the SSMT Blog community and SSMT Facebook Community now be 2 separate groups? No, SSMT will remain 1 Community group. There will be one celebration for all (January 2016).  You are welcome to interact with others at both locations; the LPM Blog and the LPM Facebook.

• Do I post my verse on both the Blog and on Facebook? No, please choose only one location.

• Do I need to re-post my January 1st verse on Facebook if I have already posted on the Blog? No ma’am.

• Can I invite others to join or is registration closed? Yes, you can invite others – anyone can join at anytime! A spiral of 24 verses is their ticket into the January 2016 celebration. The starting instructions will remain posted at:  Siesta Scripture Memory Team 2015 Instructions and Spiral Information.

    How did we know if our post posted on the first? I couldn’t begin to go through ten thousand comments.

      It is quite a task finding them isn’t it, Bobbie Jo? Grin. Your verse did indeed post on 1/01/15 at 12:16pm, comment #3209.
      In the future if you want to see your comment, the best thing to do is note the time you submit it (Central Standard Time) and it will show up in chronological order. Blessings, and welcome to SSMT!

    Sorry to be a burden, but I couldn’t find my registration because I forgot to look at my post number. I figured you all got it, but now I’m nervous after reading this post. Would you please confirm that you received it. No hurry!

    Thank you!

    Wanda Calderwood says:

    Beth, my husband was so impressed with the SSMT that he wanted to get involved. He adapted your program for his adult Bible Study Class. We are amazed at the excitement. So far we have 23 people signed up and we only average 18 each Sunday morning. Just proves Ephesians 3:20 & 21 is still well and working! He thanks you very much for hosting such a worthwhile endeavor. We appreciate you and you staff for all that you do. We are blessed.

    Tracy says:

    With using facebook to post the verses will Beth still communicate with the ones using Facebook as a way? I love that Beth does so much for all of us and always helping us to grow in his word.

      Hi Shelagh, Actually of all of the people I have checked for, yours is the first that did not post. But I am only looking on the LPM Blog comments. Is it possible you shared it on the Facebook page?

    Anita Pattison says:

    Sorry, but on the facebook page the Notes section isn’t showing up under Beth’s picture. I will still post on the blog but didn’t know if others were having trouble or needed other help with where tp go. Thank you to all of you at LPM you are a greater blessing than you could ever know!

    • 14.1
      LPM-KMac says:

      I’m so sorry you are not able to see the Notes, Anita. I just checked a few co-workers’ computers in the office and am seeing it so I am not sure hoe to help you further. But, yes, like you said, you are welcome to continue posting on the LPM Blog. See you tomorrow for Verse 2!

    My first verse is from Psalm 103 which I have been studying for about a month now. I read the entire psalm every day and I am amazed! I have so many of the verses memorized just by reading. I do not want to forget the first 4 verses so that is why I am using them. This experience has taught me well – read your verse multiple times a day and you will have it down! So Simple!!

    I have looked through 30 pages of comments from the Jan 1 SSMT start, looking for my post. I can narrow it down to posting Jan 1 after 9:51pm, but I’m wondering if there is a faster way to find it from your end. Scrolling through in search of my post I see a number attached to each post and will pay closer attention to that and the time I post as stated in an above reply. I really appreciate your help. Thanks.

    Carla says:

    I have thoroughly enjoyed memorizing my verse these past 14 days! I chose one I already knew by heart because I needed to be reminded of this verse over and over each day and OH how I have loved it! Proverbs 3:5,6 I have needed to remember that I cannot lean on my own understanding because there are just some things that I am NEVER going to understand this side of Heaven and that is totally all right! I also read this week in my devotional “New Morning Mercies” by Paul Tripp that our lives truly are shrouded in mystery at times ~ but not because He wants to keep us in the dark – quite the contrary – it is for OUR good and HIS glory. Amen! What truth! He’s got it even if it looks like chaos to me. He is not surprised, confused, worried, lazy, forgetful, or partial to people! Thank you Lord! I’m ready for a new Word tomorrow! Thanks LPM!!
