Relaunch Week 2 is Underway!
Welcome back to Seeking God with Jaime Wiebel. Relaunch Week 2 is underway and in full swing. You are going to want to stick around until the end because we have another awesome giveaway and Sitting Among Friends Blog Party!
If you missed yesterday’s guest post from Erika DeWitt, the designer behind Risen Upon Thee and the Theme designer of my new site, read it here! Thanks, Erika for all your hard work!
I love the community we create here.
What I love about the community here is we are able to celebrate, encourage, and lift each other up. Thanks for joining me for that today. Please help me celebrate and lift up a friend and sister in Christ.
Last week’s prize giveaway bundle goes to Marva. I am so excited to be able to gift this to her. I spoke with her today about the gifts and she was so excited to be blessed by them.
Marva and her family were recently devastated by the bought of hurricanes that swept through her region. You may find out more about Marva by visiting her at sunsparkleshine.com.
What an awesome opportunity for us to bless a sister during this time. The awesome thing is these drawings are randomly drawn by a system but I love how God can use something like this to bless someone. I don’t believe it was merely by chance. God is so good!
I spoke with Marva and asked her how we could pray for her right now. So would you join me as we pray for Marva and her family as they begin to rebuild their lives after the storm? Would you pray for God’s continued provision, comfort, peace and blessings as they move forward?
Praise God for the opportunity to come before Him and intercede on our sister’s behalf!Thanks, friends! You are truly what make this place great and a joy to serve at Seeking God! #SeekingGod #Relaunch #Giveaway Click To Tweet
Once again, I am so excited to be able to share some of the work of some of the fantastic people I have met during my journey as a blogger.
Part of really making it in the blogging world, I believe, is taking the time to develop relationships. It can feel very competitive. Many people begin this journey to make a buck. Often times, a quick buck. And there are some that do make a substantial amount of money at it.
But I have to tell you what I have gotten the most out of it is the relationships. I have met some really amazing people and believers and I hope that someday, I will get the chance to sit down with them and praise God together.
Even if we don’t meet here on Earth, I hope we will get to chat in Heaven. I know that God loves relationship. His first command is to love Him and love others. (Mark 12:31) It is why He created us for Him. Even if we don’t chat about blogging, (why would we) we will get to talk about our main love, Him.

Sue Moore Donaldson
Sue is the author of great books like Come to My Table and Hospitality 101: Lessons for the Ultimate Host A 12 Week Bible Study. Her current book, Table Mentoring – A Simple Guide to Coming Alongside, is her gift to the winner of the giveaway.
I was introduced to Sue’s work a couple of years ago when I found her through blog linkups. They are really a great way to connect with other bloggers. I had visited her page and watched a couple of the video that she was making.
Not only does Sue offer great guidance on being hospitable but she also has great recipes that she teaches alongside her lessons. When I watched her videos they made me want to join her at the table. She is funny, witty and full of godly teaching.
You can find Sue blogging at Welcome Heart where you can also find links to her speaking page, books, and custom jewelry.
I had the opportunity to meet Jill many years ago when she was subbing in the building I was teaching at. Through the course of many years, we have developed a friendship through our passion for teaching God’s Word and sharing it with others.
Jill has been the type of friend that you begin talking about God and life with and soon enough you are wondering where the time is. Her heart for God is pure and her enthusiasm to teach others is contagious.
You can check out the FB live video that she and I did on my Facebook page. I had a blast making it with her (as you will be able to tell) and hope we get the chance to make more in the future.
You can find more of Jill’s work on her site at Changed By His Grace.
Last year Jill’s first 60-day devotional was released, It is beautiful from the cover all the way through. You can check out Life In His Hands here on Amazon.
Kayla Currier – Live Oak Boutique
Kayla is a friend that I recently met. Like any other bloggers, I have met through linkups or through various groups.
During our correspondence, I learned of Kayla’s boutique and her heart and passion to serve God through her design skills.

Live Oak Boutique offers journals, greeting cards, art prints, hymnal art, scripture cards, bookmarks, and gift sets!

Dianna Mills – Ordinary Threads
Dianna Mills is another friend I met through a Facebook group. Through reading her work I became very interested in the unique process of Bible journaling that she does with her sister-in-law Audra.
This unique process is called Bible Quilt. They have an online shop where you can purchase these journals that come with instructions on How-to complete your own Bible Journal Pages.
I love to sew (when I have a spare minute), I love to create, and I love God’s Word. This is the perfect combination of these things. It is also a fantastic way to keep your notes organized according to a theme, topic, or a part of Scripture.
