Sweet readers,

Though I just took a break in July from posting new material, due to personal reasons I feel compelled to let the blog sit quietly for a time while I think through some things.

This hurts me to do this because I know that some of you have been blog readers of mine for over four years and you come here twice a week hoping for fresh encouragement, and to each of you in a hard marriage and going through a divorce and trying to parent on your own, I am sorry for walking away in a season of need.

In the meantime, you can click on www.elisabethklein.com/blog (if you aren’t there right now) and take a look to your right. You can choose a topic that you’re looking for and click on individual categories, or you can read one of my most popular posts under each category:

Hard Marriage:

I am so grateful for the comments, the Facebook messages, and the emails that remind me on a regular basis that what I write is helping you. Your stories and your questions and your kindness have kept me writing.

I’m not quite sure when I’ll be back or what it’ll look like, so I could use your prayers for wisdom.

Much, much love,


Taking a few moments to sit quietly and focus your heart and mind on Jesus is one of the best things you can do for yourself spiritually, mentally, emotionally and even physically. Enjoy this free gift of guided meditations.

you're just moments away from calm!
