I am so glad that you decided to stop by Surrendering the Secret. Our goal is to keep this blog updated weekly with the latest news. To begin with I will recap the last several months.
In August 10 ladies from Tampa traveled to Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina for the taping of the Surrendering the Secret video. It was an amazing experience. Each woman had the opportunity to share part of their story in a very casual environment. The taping occurred in a beautiful mountain home that took each person’s breath away. The following two days were spent outdoors taping Pat as she shared her heart to those who will watch the video. The LifeWay team was incredible and it was a blessing to get to know them.
The video is in the process of being edited and should be released in January of 2008. At the same time a Leader’s Guide and updated member book will also be released. We will keep you posted on the status of these projects.
This weekend Pat spoke at a ladies conference in North Carolina. I have spoken with her over the phone and she said it was a dream come true. She is now on her way to Kentucky where she speaks at another conference which begins on Wednesday.
Keep checking back for the latest details and updates. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment and I will answer them as soon as I can and to the best of my ability.
We love your feedback on the Surrendering the Secret Blog. (If nothing else, it lets us know that there are people out there reading the blog!) The best way for you to do that is through commenting. Under each post you will see that the last line says something to the effect of “Posted by ________ at _________ time,” “0 (or another number) Comments,” and “Links to this Post.” Click on the word “comments” which will open a new screen with a box for you to leave your comment. Type whatever you would like to say and then and then choose how or if you would like to be identified. If you have a Google or Blogger account, you can simply type your username and password and then click on “Publish Your Comment”. You can also leave an anonymous comment by clicking on the “anonymous” box. Other options for identification include using an “open ID” or leaving your name and website (the website part is optional). An “open ID” works if you have a LiveJournal, WordPress, TypePad, or AIM account.
At this time we do not have the word verification option set up. However, if you do see a box under the comment section that says word verification, then all you have to do is just type in what you see in that box. This option actually keeps us from receiving spam comments.
You also have the ability to preview your comment. If you choose that option, you will be able to make changes, but one you publish the comment, changes cannot be made.
I would also encourage you to use wisdom when commenting. Anyone and everyone have access to this blog and can read what you say. I definitely don’t want to discourage you, but just remind you to be cautious.
If you have questions, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com.
If you would like to know when the Surrendering the Secret Blog has been updated without checking it, you now can! On the right hand column you will see a “get email updates” button on the top right. Fill in your e-mail address and click on “get email updates”. Follow the directions on the next screen to decide how you would like to receive updates. (I personally like e-mails, but that is just me!) Make sure you fill in the word verification step and then click “subscribe”. You will receive a verification e-mail shortly and then follow the directions in the e-mail.
I feel fairly confident that this is the easiest way to subscribe, but if anyone has any other great ideas, I’m open!
If you have questions or run into any problems, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
