I love reading the Word of God, thinking about the Word of God, and letting it find its way into my heart.  My favorite time of day is sitting in the morning with God: a Bible lying open before me, a cup of coffee steaming in front of me, and a notebook waiting to record my thoughts.  It's an extra bonus if I can be sitting outside in the mountains or by the ocean or lake, or in a swing looking over a meadow or forest.  But most of the time I am in Siberia, where much of the year the weather does not lend itself to sitting outside.

I want to know Jesus.  One of the best ways to get to know Him is to read the Bible and think over its words and let Him speak through them and about them.  I think more clearly when I write, so I like to write out my thoughts about what I read.  I also like to write what I feel He is telling me, and my response to Him. 

Join me as I blog my current journey through the book of Mark.  I won't be moving quickly.  I like to linger over a few verses or a passage.  But I won't be trying to cover everything with in-depth Bible study, either.  Just thinking, praying, and writing.

I am Michele Womble, 
wife and homeschooling mom of two teenagers.  

I sing and play on one of the worship teams at the Church of Reconciliation in Novosibirsk, Siberia, where we have lived for the last 19 years.  
We spend the summers in Georgia/Florida, where I make sure to get my fill of being outside, as the winters in Siberia are every bit as cold as you think. 

I have recorded two albums, The Calling of a Priest (about calling), and A Few Small Fish (about serving).  I'm currently working on a Christmas single and a third album (so far I call it the Transformation album).  My songs are born out of my relationship with God, often in direct response to what I was reading in the Bible.

  1. Awesome website! Interestingly, I started posting my daily devotions in a very simple manner compared to your super duper site. I did it so I could post it and a friend of mine could post it from anywhere and Julie could keep me accountable (plus she could read it from anywhere). http://our-daily-devotions.blogspot.com/

    1. I like the idea for your site: two of you posting your daily devotions. It looks like you guys have been very disciplined in January! Forty posts already - I'm off to browse your site :-)

  2. Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog! outlook email login
