About the Blog
In JustTrudy, we are taking a stroll through the Bible. Each Series begins with a lively recapture or fictional form of a story from the Bible book that our journey has come to. The theme of each Series is a facet of leadership, the centrality of the Lord Jesus Christ in creation and redemption of humanity, and the purpose and blessing of the people of God.
In the five blog categories, the website trails the journey of Biblical events through a collection of short stories, plays or poems in Stories of God. They are presented in Series and chronologically. These renditions of Bible stories are meant to provoke an interest in them as adventures worth studying – because they teach life-changing principles. The Story guides the focus of the rest of the blogs.
Quiet Time brings you meditative pieces linked to the theme in the lead story, poem or play. What is the Spirit of God teaching you about the principles of godly living in that story, so that your spiritual goals are achieved as well? The meditation ends in prayer. Make the prayer time rich, deep and thorough, please.
Leadership Lessons is designed to expose learning on the critical values, principles and master skills that lead to effective personal and group leadership. My hope is that you will pick up, relate and apply tips for increasing your leadership capacity in the luxury of your own moments as you slowly read the words
Crisscrossing the tough lanes of professional, wife, mother and minister has taught me that life can be tough for any lady who reaches out for all the cords that life extends. Mentorship (the initials of my four daughters), shares mentoring secrets that can help make the journey easier. Especially those ‘tiny hairy feathers’ that can trip you up, because they are just so difficult to see!
Finally, I alternate or add to writing Letter to MESS, with a section titled Lessons Learned. The Learning Window is inspired by observations from cities and country-sides around the world and focuses on the beauty of humanity. It calls you to sit and consider. How can we be a blessing to others – as we have been blessed?
