Can I just take a moment to say a HUGE 

Thank You

I have been so blessed and encouraged by my readers and by newcomers to Stringer Mama.
This morning I checked my email first thing and was just in awe of the wonderful comments and encouragements and love from you! 

There are some days that I wonder why I keep this up because of the time it consumes but every time I get near that point God uses YOU to bring me back and remember the reason I write. 

To bring HIM glory not me. 
To encourage OTHER women not me. 

But when I give it all to HIM - He gives me so much more in return. 

So thank you for your comments - I read EVERY one! 
I check out your websites and I subscribe to MANY of them! 

I wanted you to know how thankful I am for you. All of you! 

In HIS Grip, 


  1. Such a sweet post Ann. I love seeing the Lord use you, and hearing the words He places on your lips to encourage others. You're one of a Kind. Thank you for sharing your heart w/ other women.

  2. We love you Ann! You give us so much encouragement!

  3. NO THANK YOU for encouraging us every chance you get. It is a blessing to know so many women of God that are sharing Him to all those that will listen... Hugs

  4. Oh my word... I just started looking around . . .

    All I can say is how have I not found your blog before???
    I cannot wait to encourage each other in this journey of being a PW.

    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog... I am so grateful to have found you.
    (Actually tears are welling up right now!!)

  5. It's always a great feeling for sure...especially when the comments are so beautiful and encouraging.


  6. Thank you for keeping going. Your blog is one of my favorites. I was a pastor's wife and I know the "fish bowl" well. I am so thankful the Lord is using you to bless us that live or have lived in the "fish bowl". May the Lord continue to bless your work here and thank you for the encouragement you are to us!! You are truly a blessing!


  7. As always you are all SOOOO encouraging to me! Meredith I felt the same way about your blog! So glad to have new friends to join in with the old. Love you all!
