Last week, Janie and I had the privilege of speaking with Susan Hunt…and happily for you, we managed to tape our conversation! For those of you who don’t know her, you’re in for a treat. For years she has been a staple at women’s ministry events, (In fact, she still is! Look for her at the upcoming Gospel Coalition’s 2012 National Women’s Conference.) and she has ministered to even more women through her books, including Spiritual Mothering: The Titus 2 Model for Women Mentoring Women and Your Home a Place of Grace.
As important as those ministries are, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention some of the practical helps Susan has developed for parents in teaching their children Biblical truths (including thankfulness!). Our church actually uses her book My ABC Bible Verses: Hiding God’s Word in Little Hearts during Tuesday Morning Women’s Bible Study, and my youngest daughter has been very blessed by it this year. She has a fairly new three-year discipleship program for teen girls. And her book Sammy and His Shepherd
(which was recommended to me months ago by one of our readers–you know who you are!) is one of several books she has written for young children which help them find Christ in Old Testament passages–as well as their own lives!
But besides all of this, Susan is herself a mother, grandmother, and a woman who has devoted herself not just to the feeling of thankfulness for one day of the year–but nurturing the practice of thankfulness throughout the year. And Janie and I are very happy to share some of her insight with you today.
Oh, and if you needed something else to be thankful about, here are Susan’s, Janie’s and my favorite Thanksgiving dishes! I’m so looking forward to trying theirs out!
Bake at 350 degrees 1 to 1 and a half hours.
