Happy New Year ~ #TheLoft

on January 2, 2015

Faithful readers and Loft friends, I completely forgot to share this post with you containing instructions for our first Loft gathering of 2015!  It’s been unusually chaotic here lately with back-to-back viruses for the whole family, an unusual Christmas, and further health issues for me.

We would all appreciate your prayers as we are all weary of Mom being ill, especially poor Dad who has to care for everyone in the meantime! 🙂

Nevertheless, I’m excited about our first topic for #theLoft and hope to read along with you all next week. If you’re not already a “Lofter,” won’t you consider joining us?  Read how below.


Merry Christmas from The Loft


 Our next link up will be Tuesday, January 6th. We look forward to hearing about your “one word” or verse for 2015!

January 6th Topic: “One Word/Verse for 2015” (We are eager to hear what the Lord has laid on your heart for the upcoming year!)


About #TheLoft


The Loft is the place for conversation, community, networking, and Christian growth.

Each week we provide a topic to start the conversation.


While there are many link and leave blog hops out there, we are different in that we ask that your link stick to the weekly topic. This fosters community and conversation. It also helps us practice “topic” writing as bloggers. Please mention The Loft in your post so we can find each other. Thank you so much!

Monday night, at 9pm Eastern, the linky goes live and all week you can link up your post on that week’s topic.

We’ll have fun topics, serious topics, practical, soul-ful, holiday, and so, so much more…we can’t wait to get started! This is not only a great way to connect with others, it’s also a fun and easy way to establish a writing habit. If you aren’t a blogger, you are welcome to join in by leaving your comments in the comment section.

So grab your coffee mug and come on up! Hang out for a bit. We betcha you’ll be glad you did.


To Participate:


1. Be creative. Feel free to use words, photos, video, audio, your family pet, whatever, to communicate on the weekly topic. But please stick to the weekly topic 🙂

2. Listen twice as much as you talk. If you leave one link, visit two. Trust us on this one~wink.

3. Be a community. Include #TheLoft graphic and/or link back in your post so we can find and share with each other. Also, share the great stuff you find when you visit around…we’ll be doing the same.

    Oh, I think I just posted mine yesterday! Can I still link it up on Tuesday? I hope you’re feeling better, Jen. I shall pray for a full recovery for all of you. Blessings to you!

    Hi Jen,

    my name is Dorothy. I am writing from England. I just discovered your blog and I can relate well to you…I am also a Pastor’s wife…thanks for putting into words what I have felt so often all along.

    Blessings for 2015, sister in Christ!

    • So nice to “meet” you, Dorothy! The path of a wife in ministry is certainly not an easy one, but it has its own rewards. 🙂 I think I’m much closer to Christ because of it than I would be otherwise. Lots of work left to do, though – all part of that work-in-progress promise! Thanks for leaving me a comment here today. It’s always encouraging to know that your words have meaning for others.
      Jen 🙂
