About Grace Partakers & Carley Evans


Grace Partakers at https://lambskinny.wordpress.com is a blog devoted to exploring the Word of God and how it relates to our lives here on this earth while we wait as foreigners for our “better country.”

About the Author ‘Lambskinny’:

Carley is a Christian — [one who believes in the heart and confesses with the mouth that Jesus is Savior and Lord] — who has been having a love affair with the Word of God since the age of 10.

Virtually every day, Carley writes at least one note on a single verse in hopes of sharing the love that God holds for His people.

Presently, Carley reads the Knox Bible (KNOX), the Wycliffe Bible (WYC), the New English Bible (NEB), New International Version (NIV), the English Standard Version (ESV), and the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) as well as spending some free time perusing Peterson’s The Message (a loose paraphrase!) and taking in the King James’ Version now and again.

In any translation, God’s Word is delightful! Carley recommends an open Bible when reading her blog — thanks!

To know is to care! To God be the glory!

      I book-marked your blog; I will try to stop in and check out your posts.

      So glad you visited. And, thanks for the comment, too!


  2. Still trying to figure out what “lambskinny” means….

  3. lambskinny says:

    A lamb is a “child of God;” and “the skinny” is slang for “what’s going on?” or “what’s up?”

    Makes some sense… I don’t know; it just sort of came to me.

    thanks Carly for you comment on my blog! I am glad you had positive words…I was afraid that it would actually have the other effect. Peace and grace to you and I will follow your blog. It is very good 🙂

      Mark Lee,
      Believe me, you likely will get some of that NEGATIVE feedback. God’s TRUTH is often rejected — it is just too easy for most people (especially those who believe in the American work ethic) to trust that God means what He says — “I will remember your sin no more.” And this is not because of anything we do, but because of what HE did — His death justifies us in His sight. Praise be to God, our Father, our brother, and our Savior!

  13. Hello beautiful sister!! I just realized I’d never posted on your blog! So sorry about that – but am dong it now!!! God bless you as we walk together the path of serving as instruments of understanding in the “toolbox” of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
    P.S. Stop by the Called OUT 4 HIM blog sometime… we’d love to see you!

    Much love! ~ Heidi

      Thanks Heidi. God bless! Please come by often.

  14. mtsweat says:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your posts and excellent handling of the Word. I’ve been following for some time, as your site is a daily stop for me. Thanks and God bless.

    1. lambskinny says:

      Yes, I’ve noticed your stopping by! And I so very much appreciate this and you! I usually don’t subscribe to blogs, but… I’d like to keep up with your posts. God bless.
      (P.S. I should clarify — the reason I don’t subscribe to blogs is not because I don’t want to but because my email is so full of ‘junk’ that I often miss important emails anyway!)

  15. I enjoyed your posts. Simple and encouraging. I will check in regularly. Thanks.

      Thanks very much, Annie. Do stop by often — consider subscribing — God bless you. Carley

    As a friend in The Lord Carley I would like to offer you personally The King of Kings Friendship Award…fell free to accept it or not.

    Blog Post – http://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2011/11/30/the-king-of-kings-friendship-award/

    Christian Love Anne

    1. lambskinny says:

      Thanks Anne. I must admit, you surprise me. But, I am happy to accept your friendship and/or award. God’s blessings, Carley

  17. Freedomborn says:

    Thank you for accepting my friendship in Christ Jesus Carley .I was thinking even if I had a case against you as a person of worth which I don’t and never did and even if you had deliberately set out to hurt me which you didn’t, do you think after all the evil things that I have done in my life and I mean evil that I would have the right to hold bitterness and resentment towards you knowing I have been forgiven so much.

    I want very much to be in Unity with you Carley as I do with all my Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, we are a family, we are bonded together in Love as we walk in Christ Jesus, what has gone before that needs to be left in past… needs to be the past… Sorry I hurt you Carley it was not my intention but I did so please forgive me.

    Our focus needs to be on the Lord not ourselves, till we are perfected in His Love and our flesh has not been put to death, we may need to repent and be forgiven, or we may find we need to forgive or 70 x 70 or 100, 00000000 x 70 and we can do this if we say close to Jesus and trust Him choosing to walk in His Love for Him and because of Him and He will work it out in us.

    Thanks again Carley – Christian Love Anne.

    1. lambskinny says:

      No need to ask for forgiveness.
      And, thanks!
      God bless, Carley

    Morning Carley
    I just nominated you for the 7×7 Link Award

    I would like to thank Michelle at http://www.ByHisGrace211.wordpress.com for nominating me for the 7×7 Link Award
    Please check out ByHisGrace211 blog site – you will be encouraged
    Romans 1:12 says: that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other
    As with most Blog Awards on WordPress there are stipulations that must be met upon acceptance of the award. With the 7×7 Link Award the first thing you have to do is tell something about yourself that nobody knows.
    I am trying to turn every thought, every situation in my life into Praise – I am trying to learn how to become secure and peaceful about the God’s plan for me
    Next: 7×7 links to my pieces I feel are worthy to link up:
    Most Beautiful Piece: http://reeknittingwordswithgod.wordpress.com/2011/12/07/in-god-i-trust/

    Most Underrated: http://joycedevivre.wordpress.com/blog/
    Most Pride Worthy: http://lynnaswonderfullife.wordpress.com/

    Next step to the 7×7 Award fulfillment is to nominate 7 bloggers who I feel deserve the honor and hopefully haven’t already received it. In no particular order:
    Revelling in the Overflowing Grace of God – http://bickleyhouse.wordpress.com/
