Isn’t it amazing how the use of technology has changed our world? We don’t take it for granted that you invite us into your homes and offices daily, to gather together and encourage each other in our walk with God. Each comment of encouragement is read, and when appropriate, shared with others at Meet Me in the Meadow. We pray for the difficult seasons you face, and rejoice with your good news! We are GRATEFUL that God has created this ministry, and we are BLESSED to be a part of it!
If you receive our devotions in your email each morning (or weekly), thank you! We would LOVE to have you visit our website to see all the informative and fun tools for you to use. Did you know that we have a Search box, that allows you to access all the devotions that have been written since 2006? We also have a tab bar, that allows quick access to our Current Series, Share It, and 2 of our most popular features, Fret Busters and Pray This. We even have a tool (just to the right of the date) that makes it easy to enlarge the print size!
If you are visiting us from the Facebook (or other social media) link, we want to invite you to join us as a subscriber! We send out posts to your email inbox on Monday – Friday, and we’d hate for you to miss anything!
Since we are strangers to most of you, and some of you have wanted to know more about us, we would like to share a short bio about each of us on the Meet Me in the Meadow team. We hope this will help you to know us better, as well as the roles we play in engaging with you online.
Roy Lessin – Founder, Writer
Roy was raised in a Jewish home and came to know Jesus as his Messiah and Savior at the age of nineteen (you can read the complete story in Sons From Afar). Roy attended Bethany College of Missions (Bethany Fellowship), where he met his wife, Char. In the early years of their marriage they served the Lord in church ministry, missions in Mexico, and Christian literature work in Puerto Rico.
In 1971, Roy Lessin, Don Leetch, Dean Kerns, and Russ Flint, along with their wives, started a Christian publishing company that grew to become DaySpring Cards. Since that time Roy spent many years in various creative and editorial roles bringing hope and encouragement to the body of Christ. He is an active Bible teacher and although he is retired from the business side, continues to be involved with DaySpring Cards by serving in various pastoral responsibilities, writing gift and devotional books, and overseeing the production of Meet Me in the Meadow.
Roy and Char have two children and four grandchildren. This past year they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. On occasion, Roy will share Char’s practical insights and spiritual wisdom on Meet Me in the Meadow.
Mandy Butler – Internet Marketing Specialist
Mandy has worked with DaySpring since 2011 in a variety of Marketing and Social Media roles, and quickly became involved with Meet Me in the Meadow. Mandy works behind the scenes scheduling product content, brainstorming the future of MMitM with Roy, and setting the Social Media Calendar.
Mandy and her husband have one daughter, and live and play in NW AR with their extended family and a lot of chickens. She enjoys capturing and documenting life with her family through photography and scrapbooking.
Marina Bromley – Photographer, Social Media Coordinator, Virtual Assistant
Marina has been with Meet Me in the Meadow for 2 years now. An avid photographer, she provides photographs for the blog, coordinates content (Roy’s words, the photos, and text in photos), and makes sure that each post goes out to the Social Media outlets (Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Google+ ). She also monitors the comments on Meet Me in the Meadow, and handles incoming correspondence. When you email the blog, you reach her!
Marina (and her husband of 30 years) have 3 kids and 9 grandkids. She volunteers in Missionary Care, Prayer, and Women’s ministry through her church and an international missions organization. She also writes at her own blog, sharing her HIStory, and encouraging women.
And then there are those that make it all come together:
We have a GREAT team of people supporting us from the DaySpring family! All of the more technical aspects of the website in Creative Arts and IT come from their great gifts and resources. We are grateful for all they do to keep us up and online, and constantly working with us creating new visual items (wallpapers, web design) for us to share with you!
We are so grateful for each of you here at Meet Me in the Meadow!
Marina, on behalf of the MMitM Team
