Hello, friends! We are so thankful for each of you who came alongside us for the Haven Help Us launch in January 2014, and for everyone who jumped on board to read and share our posts. Following a writing/blogging conference we attended together last summer, God led us both in different and wonderful directions.
Heidi is now doing behind-the-scenes work for bloggers and authors and running her own site that encourages women to “be the boss” of their households at heidimaranell.com.
And Becky is launching her first book in December, The SuperMom Myth: Conquering the Dirty Villains of Motherhood (Barbour Publishing), as well as investing more time and energy into her devotional blog, Time Out with Becky Kopitzke.
God is good.
And we are still dear friends.
In fact, we are each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Not a day goes by that we aren’t instant messaging, e-mailing, or brainstorming about our shared passion for blogging. We come up with any excuse to have a “meeting” (a.k.a. a play date in which our children occupy each other while we work side-by-side on our laptops, like co-workers across the cubicles).
Today we are very excited to announce the future of Haven Help Us. We told you it wasn’t going away—just changing. And indeed, it is in very good hands. Drum roll, please . . .
Haven Help Us is now the official blog of Appleton Alliance Church women’s ministry. Appleton Alliance is Becky’s home church and a vibrant, growing community of believers. Becky will still be involved as a regular contributor, and the blog will be led by the amazing team of women who head up women’s ministry at AAC—with the one and only Judy Episcopo at the helm.
So, with much anticipation and a few sniffles of adieu, we pass the baton to Judy and crew. If you’re a subscriber, we invite you to stick around for some great posts and godly wisdom from Haven Help Us in the months to come. Judy will be making her debut here soon. Until then, blessings to you all! And keep making those homes your haven!
