When Sheep Bite : When Christian “Friends” Hurt You

It’s a tale as old as time, Christian’s hurting other Christian’s. I see it as the dark side of Christianity and no one is really talking about it in truth. The funny thing is Christian’s know the cure, if they are reading their Bibles, and yet they continue down the path of least resistance and […]

Why Are You Downcast, Oh My Soul?

There are times winter sets up camp in my heart and it seems as if I am in Narnia, where Christmas never comes. The bleak dark clouds of relentless sadness seem to wash over my mind as I battle with sin. The coldness of my heart toward the goodness of God makes my soul ache […]

God’s Word is Refreshing

I’ve been preparing for a time teaching mom’s at CHAP home-school convention and I found some thoughts I had written some months ago. They were so encouraging to me this morning as I remembered the time I had spent in the Word before I penned these words. May they encourage you to be in His […]

Drive Thru History: The Gospels

Mom Friends! I have come up with a great way to do family devotions for 18 weeks with minimal preparation for myself and I want to pass this information on to you. Hallelujah! I find it difficult to gather up the kids for a time of worship on a daily basis. It is challenging to […]

Encouraging Your Children in the Gospel

Hebrews 3:12-13 “Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God.

Dear Children,

Dear Children,

I’m writing a book for my children this Christmas and I am finishing it up ASAP! The struggle is real to find the time to do this. I thought to share the first one with you today, maybe you can do this for your children someday? What a heritage we have to pass on to […]

A Mom’s Daily Battle

Lamentations 3:22-23  “The Lord’s lovingkindness indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. The morning has broken, the alarm has sounded and your feet are swinging to hit the cold floor. It’s the moment where you begin choosing the way your attitude for the day is […]

Delighting in the Word: Psalm 1

Delighting in the Word: Psalm 1

Read Psalm 1 Psalm 1:2 “But His delight is in the law of the LORD,  And in His law he mediates day and night.” Psalm 1 is one of my favorites. When I read chapter 1, I am always immediately hit with the word DELIGHT. Delight is a word that speaks of a  high degree […]

Don’t Give Up!

      The weather outside has become wintery and the skies have turned a winter gray, but it is a great time to buckle down and enjoy the homeschool journey.  It’s this time of the year that the homeschool BLAH’s can set in and cause us to become a little down in the mouth. […]
