I just got tagged by Angela Stevens to do a meme.  I met Angela recently via the #TCOT community in Twitter.  If you are tagged for this meme all you do is follow the  rules below:

———– begin copy paste ———————————–>

Just copy paste THIS and everything below up until my Five links:
I thought it would be cool to have a meme where we post links. We can post up to five. Then we tell five more people to share their links. If we all share who tagged us, our links are sure to be seen!

They can be business links, favorite sites, affiliate links, whatever you want…

There are Five Rules: 1. MUST be clean. No R rated sites. 2. Only FIVE links. 3. MUST tell 5 people. 4. A link back to the person who tagged you 5. Angela

———– end copy paste ———————————–>

I decided to introduce you to some folks I know in person.

1. My friend Steve who is a youth pastor at a church in Urbandale, IA.  He  posted recently on 12 ways that you can pray for your family during Christmas.  An excellent way to prompt us to pray for our families!

2.  My friend Meredith who I just discovered started a couple of new blogs one for Homemaking where you can read about her “passion” for laundry, and one for Mint Green Living.

3.  Melanie who works for Big Brothers/Big Sisters.  She recently wrote an excellent Christmas devotional that I’m sure you’ll enjoy.

4.  Bryan Fatka, who is a contributor here (Phatkat) who leads The Journey, a network of house churches in the Des Moines area. .  He has his own blog.  Since we are looking to get a winter storm today I thought I’d share with you what he thinks the worst part of winter is.

5.  My favorite Presbyterian blogger, Wayne, who is the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Des Moines.  He recently made a case for why the Manual of Church Doctrine according to the Church of Scotland needs to be back in print.
