Back to School with a NEW Scripture Memory Pack for Students

Back to School with a NEW Scripture Memory Pack for Students

It is that time of year, Back to School season is in full bloom. You may be enjoying the delightful smell of new curriculum lining your bookshelves. You may still be up to your elbows in planning your school year. Whether you are a planner or a procrastinator, this time of year has a certain type of energy that excites a homeschool mom. The one thing most Christians have in common when approaching the new school year is the renewed intention and conviction to steep our homeschools in God’s Word. An education rich in quality and purpose is void of any meaning without a foundation built on the Word of God – the only source of real truth. We have … Read more

To the Woman Waiting on God

To the Woman Waiting on God

To the woman who is waiting on God, There you are, in the waiting room of life; a place you’d never thought you’d be.  As a child with grand hopes and dreams, you never imagined yourself here, waiting on God and longing for Him to move. You never imagined you’d be lonely for a husband.  You never dreamed you’d ache for a child and beg for God to fill your empty arms.  You never thought your marriage would be in trouble, and you’d be waiting for God to mend the shambles of your relationship.  You never fathomed that disease would come and wreck havoc on your life. But here you are, at a crossroads, yet God seems silent. While you wait … Read more

Proverbs for Mothers

Proverbs for Mothers

“There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18 We had our monthly women’s Bible study last night.  We were talking about taming the tongue.  One lady mentioned how women take so much care about what goes into their mouths but so little care concerning what comes out.  We are so worried about our figures and our health, but we rarely take account if our speech is loving or edifying. A Confession This verse in particular is the one that God brought home to my heart with conviction.  You see I am too often not kind to my children with my words.  I say “no” a lot, … Read more

Words Reveal Character: What the Bible has to say about Gossip

Words Reveal Character: What the Bible Says about Being a Gossip

“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil. But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”  Matthew 12:33-37 Looking Inward I have … Read more

A Rebuke to Christian Women

A Rebuke to Christian Women

We are in a World of Trouble A friend emailed me this morning.  She informed me that over the past month her entire life had fallen a part.  Her husband left her and her four children and took all their money.  He is now pursuing divorce and has not spoken a word to her in two weeks. She had attempted to contact her local church body whom they had even attended some marriage counseling with, and it was met with little to no response. As I write this post I receive a text message from a friend who tells me she needs prayer because she feels like a failure as a wife and a mother. I spent my own morning … Read more
