As I read through Ruth, I was blown away by how many good characteristics she displays. She was hardworking, generous, obedient, morally pure--just to name a few. But the thing that really stuck out to me was her grateful heart despite some horrible circumstances.

It's easy for us to read Ruth's story today and not fully grasp how difficult the situation was for her and Naomi. So don't miss that. Don't skim over how dire Naomi and Ruth's situation was. Yet in the middle of having no money, no food, no male support system and no real family (see what I mean about dire circumstances) Ruth never caved. She remained grateful and displayed it to all those around her.

Well that's what spoke to me as I read Ruth. So what characteristic of Ruth jumped out at you? Let me know. Just click on the Comment link above. I'd love it if I heard from you. Tami W.

Powered by 4 just underwent a mini-makeover! And I think you'll be excited about some of the new features. Click on the Resources button to find some great ways to engage God's Word. Or, go to The P4 Movement page and see what's happening globally with Powered by 4. Lots of ideas there to help spread the word too. And what I'm most excited about is our new P4 Blog. I'll be posting video updates every Monday and Thursday as well as some questions for you to respond to. I'd love to hear from you and so would all the other P4 members, so check it out. Monday is the official launch date for the new blogs, so come back for some encouragement, and join in the P4 conversations.

About Me

Hi, my name is Tami Weissert, the P4 facilitator and the "voice" behind the blogs. I'm passionate about helping people grow spiritually and actively encourage Bible engagement through conference speaking and writing. I also served as co-host of the Back to the Bible radio program for over 8 years. A little about me. I'm married to Jeff, and we love scuba diving, playing with our 3 dachshunds and going to Husker football games. I also love growing orchids, singing and Diet Pepsi. I hope you'll join in the conversation as we read the Bible and grow together.

About My Blog

I'm passionate about engaging God's Word! And my blog is about just that--giving you opportunities to receive, reflect on and respond to Scripture. Each day you'll find a short passage as well as thoughts, challenges and application questions for you to think about and respond to. I look forward to interacting with you and learning together, so post comments as often as you'd like. You can even sign up to get the blogs delivered to your inbox each day!
