What I Learned When I Left Bible Studies

Much like life, you’re walk in Christ is a journey. It’s as unique as you are as a person. It takes building blocks in a solid foundation, framework, structure, & time for maturity. Just like a new baby born in this world, surviving on the essentials of milk, new Christians often find themselves surviving in…

Prophets of Baal, Today?

God speaks to all of us if we just stop & listen. I know, you’re rolling your eyes at me… “When do We have time to find stillness & peace with our lives today?” Mine is only first thing in the summer mornings, when everyone sleeps in super late. I can get up, grab my phone…

Noah Doesn’t Say Pee-Pee Words

There is nothing like being churched by your 4.5 year old. I have always said that our children are our mirrors. They are pure reflections of our attitudes, our morales, our values, our mannerisms… down to our facial expressions. So the next time you see your kid roll his/her eyes, remember you have probably done…

See No Evil… Be No Evil

My son never fails to amaze me. He sees the world so pure at 3.5 year of age. His heart is so huge! He loves everybody. Maybe I give him too much credit there, but if he has limits, he doesn’t wear them on his sleeve. Where I stand looking around, I shamefully admit, I…

Persecution In My Backyard

Tonight was one of “those” nights. While putting my overly exhausted kids to bed late, I got a phone call. With toothbrush in mouth, I muffle out a, “Hello.” That was the only word I said… The conversation was one-sided, not even a good-bye was rendered on either side. Unable to repeat the choice words,…

“For Such A Time As This!”

I believed watching my only biological son, who bonded with his daddy right away, agonize & torment over his daddy’s absence was worst than my worst nightmare. No, no … it is my worst nightmare. It rips me wide open, along with a bag of candy for us both (I know … Food won’t solve…

Be Still My Beating Heart

No! I’m not becoming a sparkly, impossibly beautiful vampire (“Twilight” reference for those who didn’t have any tweens doped up on the “Twilight” high 🙂 ). Instead today, … Today was a good day!! Today I didn’t yell! Today I didn’t find any reason to raise my voice above attention-getting volume. Today was the day…

This Week In Scripture

So here we are a few weeks behind again… 😦 We haven’t given up or lost sight, just been in very busy confusion. We also have to be honest that we aren’t all necessarily memorizing each verse every week, but the exposure alone has been uplifting & reflective. We really hope you have been following…

This Week In Scripture

Last week Amanda brought these scriptures: “Anyone who loves learning accepts correction, but a person who hates correction is stupid. – Proverbs 12:1″ “Spend time with the wise and you will become wise, but the friends of fools will suffer. – Proverbs 13:20″ The kids weren’t that excited about learning God’s design for education, especially…

This Week In Scripture

I got a little sidetracked & busy these last few weeks… Ok, like a month. So let me catch you up: We ended with: “These things I command you, that ye love one another. – John 15:17” Then we moved over to: “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your hear, and…

This Week In Scripture

So I can’t remember beyond a few well quoted verses. Part of my New Year’s Challenge had been to memorize more. There was a time in my life I won a Bible via a Bible Drill competition & now I can’t tell you half the books in the Bible, none-the-less in order! Then it’s come…
