OUR NEW CHRISTIAN RESOURCE PAGE & LIFE UPDATE!

(Post by: Lilly Hobbs)

Y’ALL! Madie and I have been so pumped and thankful this week because our Podcast, A Few Minutes With The Few, hit 7,000 downloads and we released our new, free, Christian Resource Page that we have been working on for the last couple of months! It is available to download and print right here from the Blog on our resource tab!

It is a simple, but powerful resource to use in your own life, but also if you are discipling someone and want them to read truth-filled books, listen to encouraging music, challenge themselves in the area of accountability, and have a deeper understanding and love for Scripture!

I know many of you loved reading the last life update we published in June, and I think all the celebration this week calls for another one!

First, let me update you on how the Healthy Kids Day Outreach went, as well as our four-year anniversary weekend, because my goodness, it was one of the craziest weekends. The outreach was a blast, most of the girls in our Bible Study group came, and we got to pray for almost every kid/parent that stopped by our table! We made prayer journals with the kids which they got to take home with them, and we also gifted two giveaway baskets that included Bibles, adorable Bible story books, some little toys, etc.

It was an amazing experience and an outreach we most definitely look forward to as a group!

After the outreach we celebrated our four-year anniversary in our newly renovated Ministry Center and spent most of the weekend having super deep and meaningful conversations about the Lord and dreaming about what the next year might look like. So many memories were made, one of the most memorable being dedicating the Ministry Center to the Lord together on Sunday, June 5th!

As we were dedicating the Ministry Center, our dad received an unexpected phone call about a young lady that needed help. I’m afraid I can’t share all the details of her story here on the Blog, but God allowed our paths to cross for a brief afternoon. Us girls were able to do what we could to help her, and we are continuing to pray for her and her situation.

On our way home from helping this young lady, one of our friends (who is also a part of our Bible Study group) mentioned that she had seen a few old doors sitting by a telephone pole at the end of someone’s driveway. This was a total God-thing, as we had been looking for an old door over the past few months to put in the Ministry Center!

Not even three minutes after she had made that comment, we passed the driveway she had noticed earlier, and we saw the most perfect, beautiful old door that was EXACTLY what we needed! It was simply the best, and we are still in awe over how God rewards obedience!

Now, fast forward to present-day… I will be starting college this fall to earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies, and Madie will continue her General Education classes. Our plan is to continue with The Few, doing weekly Bible Studies, Blogging, Podcasting, posting on IG, and possibly starting a YouTube channel. We’ll see where the Lord takes that last one. 😉

On July 23rd we are going to host our first ever FEW Retreat with our Bible Study girls in the Ministry Center, and we will spend the whole day discussing Biblical womanhood and what God made us for. We will take a deep dive into the feminist movement, the dark history of abortion, and how the enemy has lied to women about the most important “jobs” we could ever have – being wives and mothers and building a home in obedience to Christ.

Madie & I were invited to speak to a class of 5th and 6th grade students at a church camp near us on July 27th. We will be sharing the Gospel with them, as well as teaching them how to share the Gospel with those they are around and giving them the tools to do so! Please pray alongside us that these kid’s lives would be radically transformed by the Gospel!

Just yesterday the Lord provided us with some chairs that we’ve been needing for the Ministry Center. I, of course, could go on and on about all the amazing ways we’ve been seeing God work over the last weeks, but for the sake of time I will save some stories for another post.

Trust me when I say ministry is hard, and there are some really rough moments that you just have to battle through and rise above, but God truly does reward obedience and He provides exactly what we need in the midst of it all.

Thanks for being here in our little corner of the world. Continue to seek the Lord this week, and I’ll see you here again next Thursday!

“The Lord is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!””   (Psalm 118:14-16)

P.S. Comment below how we can pray for you this week!

LIFE UPDATE!

(Post by: Lilly Hobbs)

Happy Thursday, y’all! This Blog Post is going to look a little bit different than it usually does, but I am excited to update you on all the awesome things God has been doing in our little corner of the world recently!

We need to do this more often!

Our family is getting ready for a big weekend of outreach and celebration which are, of course, the best kind of weekends, in our book. We are participating in an event called Healthy Kids Day in a county close to us, where we will set up a couple tables and have some Christian resources, prayer journal crafts for kids, and offer to pray/share the Gospel with those we encounter and connect with! Please pray that hearts would be open to hearing and receiving the Gospel.

Our closest friends/Bible Study girls are coming along for the adventure. After the outreach we will celebrate our FOUR-YEAR anniversary of being a Bible Study group, together, in our newly renovated Ministry Center.

I can’t tell you how much our group looks forward to these times where we can get away from all the noise and business to celebrate, spend some quality time together, and thank the Lord for His great faithfulness to us. The Lord always reveals Himself to us in new ways as we attempt to re-focus on what ultimately matters, which is eternity.

Because we want to be fully present this weekend, Madie & I decided to take this week off from recording and editing for the Podcast. However, we shared with our Podcast listeners in our latest episode that we created a Spotify Worship Playlist as a free resource for y’all! CLICK HERE to listen to some of our favorite worship songs and worship with us. It’s over three hours long, and we plan to continue to add more songs over time!

Here’s a list with direct links to our three recent Podcast Episodes in case you missed them (click on title of episode to listen) …

Rebellion To Tyrants Is Obedience To God – Season 2 Finale & Memorial Day Special!

What To Do When Life Feels Boring – S2:EP54

Compassion And Critical Thinking – S2:EP53

I mentioned earlier that we are celebrating in the Ministry Center, and so many amazing things are happening in that space! Our parents (Scott and Michelle) have been doing some marriage counseling out there, and one of the couples they are counseling decided to follow Jesus and give their lives to Him a few weeks ago. These are the very first salvations to take place in the Ministry Center! Praise the Lord! We are excited to see them continue to seek Jesus and grow in their knowledge of Him.

Alright, I could spend so much more time updating, but I’ve got to get ready for our Bible Study time with the girls tonight! I want to thank you so much for being here and for reading, listening, and supporting The Few every week. We appreciate y’all so very much!

If you have any questions or topics you would like us to write/talk about, leave them in the comment section below, and please let us know how we could pray for you this week!

Bye guys! 😊
