The wisdom of my Ann’s

Ann Romney said in her speech that opened the Republican National Convention, “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point.”







Ann Voskamp said yesterday in her blog,

“I don’t want my life to be how I took experiences — but that I gave exceedingly.

That I gave every last drop, that I poured it all out, that I held nothing back. Because the way to really live is not to try to fill your life up — but to spill your life out.”



Ann Judd, my biking friend who just left her daughter off at Wheaton College to begin studies as a music/theater major to minister in the name of Jesus Christ,

“Oh, Dawn, we just went through the orientation days at Wheaton College with Jennie. They kept telling us that they were preparing our daughter to serve. That her education was all about becoming the best she could be in order to serve the best that she was created to serve.”

Walking in Him with the Ann’s this Wednesday,

  1. “Broken and spilled out for the love of You, Jesus!” A song that was life changing for me back in the 80’s. Ann VosKamp’s statement — oh, that we would all drink that in and make it our way of living 24/7. What a life I would be living. If only I had truly understood early on that it’s not all about ME. It’s not all about today and what I can do to accumulate “stuff!” I had a conversation about that verse that talks about the fact that eternity is in the heart of man. I had always thought of that as being that mankind knows he is an eternal being, and that there is life after death. I had never thought about it as thinking of what has eternal value as opposed to temporal. Beautiful comparisons of the Ann’s, Dawn. Lot’s to take with me through the day!

    • I am invigorated by women I am meeting today who do not conform to this world. I am praying for the strength to walk along with them. (Can I stand by you?)

      Have a great day,
