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!

My new theme. The cherry tree.

At the end of every year–and sometimes several times during the year–I get restless and want to change my website theme. It’s usually a fast and unexpected decision, too. Like tonight, for instance. I didn’t even know I was going to do this and suddenly I did!

The truth is that if you have a website and you aren’t happy with your theme, you’re not going to want to WORK there.

I loved my last theme, but I was beginning to feel jittery again, so I found a beautiful new theme (this theme is by Out The Box) and installed it. What do you THINK?  I’d love to hear your opinion.

If you are reading this blog post or visiting my website on your phone, you’ll need to switch to the Desktop version on your phone to see this theme. But you really need to be on your computer or laptop to see its beauty fully. (I’m not sure about being able to view it properly if you’re on an iPad.) 

The navigation is pretty much the same around here, and hopefully you won’t have much trouble. I’m also planning to create a new freebie this week for subscribers to my website’s personal mailing list, so stay tuned. 

But why did I choose a cherry tree as the picture on the home page?

According to Google, the significance of a cherry tree in Japan goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry tree represents the fragility and the beauty of life, reminding us that life is overwhelmingly beautiful but tragically short. 

A cherry tree takes 3 to 4 years to produce its first crop, and 7 to fully mature (seven being the perfect number of God). They are a difficult tree to grow and keep alive. A tree  may be in bloom for only a week or two.

Like our lives which go way too fast (including THIS year!). So savor the moments, especially this Christmas.

Live well. Laugh often. Love much. 

 “You do not know about tomorrow. What is your life? It is like fog. You see it and soon it is gone.  What you should say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”–James 4;14-15, NLV

I hope you like my new theme. Please leave your comments below of what you think about it!
