Assembly of God Blogs Recent Posts


Updates & B.O.W. Award for the Week of 8/25-8/31

A/G Blogs Recent Updates/News:  1.) First names and States are now listed along each blog in the Alphabetical (A-Z) Genre.  2.) There is a new search feature found in the right hand side bar.  Here you can search for blogs by title or subject. (Search results appear at the top of the page.) Aaron from "Iron Sharpens Iron" gave this GREAT idea/ suggestion.  This is what he wrote about the new search feature once it was up... "I tried the search and it's awesome!!! You can connect the search through the blogs. So if you want to look up a subject you'll find all kinds of stuff. Wow this is way better than I thought! Yippeeeeeee!!!!!!!!:-)"  Thanks Aaron for your idea and comments!! Do you have an idea/suggestion for this network site?  Send it to here.   3.)  The scrolling feed reader (in the left hand sidebar) is now longer, and allows you to view more recent posts at a time.  With most browsers, it will stop moving when you move your mouse over the list.   4.) Assembly of God Blogs is now INTERNATIONAL!  Praise the Lord.  We have had three blogs for some time now from Mexico.  That in and of itself is pretty cool.  This past week we added our first overseas blog, from Indonesia.  You will find this blog listed in the "New" genre.  5.) I was hoping the search feature would work with the location as well, but that doesn't seem to be working.  So, I am going ahead and adding the "Location" genre (USA pictured button above).  I'm slowly working on it.  This will take a lot of copying/ pasting and linking.  Thanks for your patience.  I do all this in hopes it will be used.  PLEASE utilize this site, it's here for YOU.

This is my husband’s blog. He gives such great teachings and devotions from God’s Word. He is the greatest preacher, pastor, and teacher I know! I know I am a little biased, but I think everyone should check it out. :)
