Happy New Year! Happy January! May the 2020s be filled with joy and contentment, regardless of our circumstances!

Father God, thank You for this New Year and this new decade. Lord God, prepare us for this New Year. Prepare us for the difficulties and challenges that we may face. Lord God, only You know what this next year and dedicate holds. Lord, strengthen Your people to stand for Truth. Father God, for those who wept and mourned in 2019, may this new year be one of joy. Lord God, thank You that You are ALWAYS with us. Thank You that You never waste a hurt. Lord God, I do not know what this reader is facing; however, I know that You are in their boat and will calm their winds, waves and fears. Lord God, may You flood Your people with the peace of Your presence.

Lord God, only You know what will happen amongst the nations in this next decade. Thank You Lord that You always leave a remnant. May we have the courage and confidence to endure whatever may come our way. Lord God, as You know, suffering is not easy. However, to be a child of yours includes some form of suffering. May we suffer well for Your Name’s sake and glory. Lord God, grow us more to be like Christ. May we treasure Your Word in our heart more this year. May we preach Your Word to ourselves in times when our courage and confidence lacks. Lord, prepare us to be used by You.

Thank You Lord for this reader. Thank You Lord for all the love and support that I have received from readers in 2019. Lord, I ask that You will use this blog to bring glory, honor and praise to You and to encourage and strengthen my brothers and sisters in Christ. Lord God, thank You for this reader. May they set spiritual goals that will bring them closer to You and transform them more into Christ’s image. Lord, Thank You for the gift of life! In Jesus’s Name I pray, Amen.

Blue Collar Theologian

My name is Mandy Sweigart-Quinn, I live in Lancaster, PA and I am a “Blue Collar Theologian.” I love Jesus! I am passionate about His Word (The Holy Bible)! I come alive when I can encourage others in their walk with Jesus (whether by writing or speaking). As a “Blue Collar Theologian” it is my aim to live/practice/work out my Christian hope with sincerity, authenticity and genuineness. As a “Blue Collar Theologian,” I strive to meet people right where they are (“Incarnational Theology”). I graduated in May 2019 from Capital Seminary and Graduate School with a Master's in Biblical Studies. I am a passionate, excited and enthusiastic person! I love flowers, sports and sunsets. Since January 2, 2018 I have had the privilege of being married to Nathan.

  1. “May we preach Your Word to ourselves in times when our courage and confidence lacks.” Such a great reminder that not only should we share the message with others, but remind ourselves of it as well! Happy New Year!
