In addition to this website and blog, I’ve been dipping my toes in over on some other social media platforms around the interwebs. So, I thought I’d take a moment to let you know where else I’ve been hanging out in case any of these avenues appeal to you as a way we might connect.
I’m pretty excited about this first one, happening tonight!
I’m doing my first Blab (it’s like a live video chat, in case you’re unfamiliar) on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 6:00 PM (Mountain Time) with my friend Alysa Passage from Kitchen Fellowship. We have a product coming out this week to inspire gratitude for anyone who needs it this Valentine’s Week so we’ll be chatting about that and looking into what it looks like to live with a spirit of gratitude and rest. Click here to sign up!
3 to 5 times a week I’m sharing scripture, inspiring quotes and tidbits about my life. You can find me @merrittjo or just click the button under my feed below to follow me there.
Have you explored this fun new app yet? It’s livestreaming video with live feedback through written comments or “hearts”, which are kind of like Facebook “likes” but you can give hundreds during a broadcast. Currently, I go live on Periscope 5 to 7 times a week. Find me between 5:00 – 6:00 AM (Mountain Time) for a quick 10 minute “scope” in which I read a verse of scripture and pray over you. This has been a beautiful way to start my day. In fact, it’s helped me a ton in terms of getting into God’s word every day. It’s short but powerful, and we’re building a sweet community of people looking for daily biblical encouragement. Will I see you there tomorrow morning?
Periscope is owned by Twitter so my handle is the same in both places, and Twitter is a great way to get alerted when I’m about to go live on Periscope or, if you’re not an early bird, you can always find that morning’s replay link in my Twitter stream. (I also save my “Scopes” at https://katch.me/merritto).
While this isn’t a social media channel, I did want to share my first product with you, which is hosted in my Gumroad store. This downloadable PDF coloring journal was designed in partnership with my friend Alysa Passage at Kitchen Fellowship. We wanted to give you a moment to put “busy” away. To give you an opportunity to pause, create, rest, rejuvenate, and respond to what’s brewing in your heart and soul. You can read more about it here.
There is a lot more in the works right now in the form of encouragement for you, including a 30 day prayer challenge, so stay tuned!
