New year, new theme

Every once in awhile, I get bored with my life. That may include my WordPress website theme! For 2020, I decided to change it again. What do you think? Please leave your comments below. I want to hear your thoughts!

My old theme had a sunflower header. I love sunflowers because they move their blooms to always face the light of the sun, seeming to follow it as it moves across the sky. I feel this is symbolic of us as believers in Jesus Christ, keeping our faces toward the light of the Son.

I chose the image above of the beautiful woman on her cell phone for this website’s background because I always have my iPhone with me for my business and my personal life.

Our phones are our way of “connecting” with one another. Here at BethJones.net, my desire is to connect more with you, encouraging you to use your spiritual gifts for God’s glory, fulfilling His great purpose for your life, and living a life you love. This is my mission and purpose. I do this through speaking at women’s conferences and retreats and writing books. As a Christian speaker and writer, it’s time to share your powerful message with others!

The “welcome” page is different now at BethJones.net. For now I’m using my featured and latest posts for the front page. “Featured” means the blog posts I want to highlight for you. “Latest posts” are just that–my most recent blog posts. Any time I write a new blog post, you’ll see it on the front page and won’t have to look for it. If you do want to search for anything on my site, there is a search function at the bottom of this page in the footer.

If you look at the top of this page, there is a little “navigation button,” where you can click on the link of the page which you’d like to view:

  • International Speaker (this used to be my welcome page and shares all about my speaking and writing books, including my media page, speaking topics, and speaking testimonials)
  • Blog (my most recent blog posts–just another way for you to find my blog posts easier);
  • Privacy;
  • Website Disclaimer;
  • Affiliate Disclosure.

At the end of each of my blog posts is my invitation to speakers and writers to sign up for my updates that you get bi-monthly in your email inbox. You’ll receive my free PDF and an inspiring video for signing up–my complimentary gift to you!

At the bottom of the page for this website are links to other places where you’ll find me online. You’ll also see buttons where you can connect with me further on social media.

If you have any questions or comments for me, there is a contact page on the navigation button for you.

That’s it for now. 

Have a blessed and beautiful day!

Tweaking things

Last week I installed a new, pretty butterfly theme here at BethJones.net

This week I’m tweaking (not twerking, haha!) things to pretty it up and for easier navigation for you: adding new pages, fixing broken links, inserting pics on posts, etc. 

You’ll find my revised page listing the articles I’ve written as well as other COOL STUFF just for you called Free Stuff: free articles, audios, podcasts, and videos! 

Just click here to access these free gifts!

What do you think of my new butterfly theme? Leave your comments below. I just love it! 

Remember that butterflies are never stressed out, worried, depressed, or angry. Butterflies are free and happy. 

That is what God wants for you and me!

New website summer theme: butterflies

Usually about once or twice a year (or more!), I start getting restless and bored with my website and business. It often results in me changing my website theme.

It helps inspire me. If you don’t like your website theme (or you’re getting bored with it), you won’t want to work there!

For summer, I wanted something that feels light and pretty, like fresh flowers. 

This new theme has butterflies and has what is called a slider at the top of the Home page, where you can see a slide of pictures. Some of the slides have pictures of my books, and when you click on the graphic, it takes you to the book on Amazon.

It took me awhile to find a theme I liked today. I’ve always loved butterflies. Have you ever seen a butterfly that is stressed out, depressed, or angry? No.

Butterflies are happy and free. I would like to become more like a butterfly, because I often stress out and freak out way too much. Can anyone say meltdown, like a chocolate bar in the sun? (Chocolate sounds good right now, but I digress!) I really want to become a more peaceful woman, who worries less and trusts God more. Free.

A butterfly was the symbol and logo for my women’s Released Conference several years ago.

Our daughter Leah drew a beautiful yellow butterfly and flower for the conference, which I will always treasure. There’s such an  anointing on it.

My husband Ray also bought me butterfly souvenirs when he traveled to Haiti on one of his five Haiti mission trips, training security guards and setting up a medical clinic in Port Au Prince after the 2010 earthquake.

For me, butterflies are a symbol of the transformation we go through when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and his refining work throughout our lives to make us more like Jesus.

for Authentic Love by Beth Jones

At the bottom of the page are my newest blog posts again for easy access, the link to my memoir (Promises In The Dark: One Woman’s Search for Authentic Love), and other places where you can connect with me online.

I’m still tweaking it, but wanted to give you a heads-up of the changes around here. I have to make sure it’s a responsive theme for smart phones and other devices.

What do you think of it? Leave your comments below.  

Here’s a beautiful graphic just for me and my website with hearts (another thing I love), flowers, and a butterfly that my friend Eren McKay created for me. I love it!
