Welcome to Gather & Grow!
My name is Jess Wolstenholm and I’m the founder of Gather & Grow. I started the ministry this year to provide simple faith tools for busy families. I often meet parents who want their kids to grow close to Jesus but many just don’t have the time to fit complicated Bible study and discipleship into their busy schedules. That’s where Gather & Grow can help, by providing simple tools and methods that fit faith-building into everyday life.
I wanted to take a moment to say hello and welcome you to the community. I’m truly thankful that you’ve chosen to join the Gather & Grow family! I look forward to growing with you as we lead our kids on their spiritual journey.
Here’s what you can expect from me. . .
I’ll publish fresh content on the blog once or twice a week. And then, on the first and third Wednesday of every month, I’ll send you the Let’s Grow! Newsletter, which provides additional tools, encouragement and inspiration to support you as you lead your family in faith at home. On the last Wednesday of every month, you can look forward to receiving your Daily Devo Calendar for the next month along with a few thoughts about our theme plus a bonus seasonal devotional when we have one. Every once in a while I will also send you emails about any new products or resources we’ve created or discovered to make sure you have everything you need to gather and grow as a family.
Here’s what you need to do now to get started. . .
- Make sure you are getting my emails!
Be sure to whitelist or prioritize all emails from “Gather & Grow” and “firstname.lastname@example.org”. This is important! If my emails aren’t getting through, you’ll miss out on the full benefits of being a Gather & Grow subscriber.
If you are a GMAIL user or you use any other web-based email that filters broadcasts away from your main inbox, be sure to “drag” any emails from Gather & Grow into your Priority inbox. (because I don’t want you to miss a thing!)
- Let’s connect on social media
Take a moment to follow Gather & Grow on Facebook and Instagram as these are my primary methods of communication outside of email updates and again, I don’t want you to miss any of the tools we have for you!
- Print out your Daily Devo Calendar
This Family Daily Devotional Calendar is the perfect tool to help you engage your kids in simple, faith-building conversations rooted in God’s Word. Hang your calendar in the kitchen or somewhere central you’ll see it everyday. Take 5-10 minutes at breakfast, dinner or bedtime to talk about the theme and Bible verse for the day. You can even keep the calendar in the car and use it on the go! Click HERE for more instructions on how to use this calendar. And be sure to check the blog each week where we’ll have helpful posts that follow along the calendar themes.
Once again, I’m so honored to have you as part of the Gather & Grow community. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to reach out via email to email@example.com.
Excited to grow with you!
