The Loft Link-up ~ Week 6 and a FREEBIE!

Welcome to Week 6 of

The Loft ~ A Wednesday Link-Up!

Come on up!!




You will find my Week 6 post and the linky tool near the bottom, but first, I want to welcome Chris Malkemes as a new hostess at The Loft. I met Chris through another link-up and she has been a delight to get to know. Her heart overflows with beautiful poetry and the love of Jesus which she writes about at her blog, Whispered Words of Wisdom. So now, you will be able to enter The Loft through three blogs. Please make Chris welcome!

Before we get started, may I remind you how The Loft Link-Up works?


The Loft is a place for conversation, community, networking, and Christian growth.

Each week we provide a topic to start the conversation. Then, Wednesday morning at 5am EST, the link goes live, and for 6 glorious days you can link up your post on that week’s topic. The linky will close at 5pm EST on Monday. Please make sure the post you link-up pertains to the chosen topic of the week.


To Participate:

1. Be creative. Feel free to use words, photos, video, audio, your family pet, whatever, to communicate on the weekly topic.

2. Listen twice as much. If you leave one link, visit two.

3. Be a community. Include #TheLoft graphic and/or hashtag in your post and social media so we can find each other.

4. Write like Jesus would write. We are a Christian link-up. Offensive or inappropriate posts will be deleted. No questions asked.

5. Be pertinent. Our heart is to build community and intimacy, and our means to do that is to build each link-up around a single topic. Please make sure your post is on topic.




When you link up at The Loft, your link will appear on three blogs! We’d love for you to visit The Loft co-hosts and know who we are:








Today’s Topic:

“Pot Luck”

Today is POT LUCK day at The Loft. I adore pot luck meals. They are a veritable smorgasbord of the best recipes from all the cooks who participate. Pot Luck means there will a surprise or three on the table. Some folks are predictable pot-luckers, while other bring something new and different every time. I love both kinds.

I don’t know what everyone else is offering up, but I’m going to offer something new for our Pot Luck get together. I spent some time putting together a list of some of my all-time favorite Bible studies, and I am making it available to you today as a printable. You can download it, print it, and give it to your Bible study leader for the next time she is searching for a Bible study for your small group to do. I hope you will find it super helpful. I have done each of the studies listed and know them to be solid, Scripture-based studies. So, go ahead…download and print.


10 Bible Studies



Next week’s Topic (July 15th): A Word Prompt ~ (we are tossing out a word. what comes to mind when you see that word? write a post centered around the word prompt. the word for today is LEGACY. give us your best post on the topic of LEGACY.)

I hope you will plan to join us each week at The Loft.

Now, it is time to link-up!!

  • What a helpful idea Leah! Sorry I missed you all last week- too much going on in my world. Glad to join you again this week and I was happy when I saw “pot luck” I thought it’d be fun to share our continuing trek through Maine with those who enjoyed the May trips post. Looking forward to what ever else is on the table! Pot luck are fun!

    • Ren, I’m so glad you are sharing more about your Maine adventures. I look forward to reading them!!

  • Pot luck meals sound amazing and not something we do here in England – maybe we do, and if we do, I have been missing out! Thank you for sharing and for once again bringing The Loft back! Much love xoxoxoxo

    • Oh Ruth, pot luck meals are the BEST! If you ever visit me here in America we will make sure you experience one!

  • Chris Malkemes

    How nice. A potluck in the word!…. First time hosting. Think I did okay, but I did something wrong because the linking is not linking….

    • Hmmmm, let me take a look at your site. I’ll email you. I’m sure it is just a tiny little something.
