Childlike Faith

Last year I took a Bible study called “Entrusted with a Child’s Heart.” I think it was one of the best studies on parenting from a biblical perspective, that is out on the market today. I don’t say that lightly, as there are few books I would recommend women study outside of the Bible. But… Continue reading Childlike Faith

Welcome, 2016

We tried to sleep on our fold-out couch last night, the three of us. Little Man had coordinated a “party” for the us (board games, Wii games, root beer floats), and we crashed together in a “slumber party” to end the year. I made it until 4:27 am, when repeated kicks in the back and… Continue reading Welcome, 2016

Integrity in a Facebook "Friends" World

“But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes ‘ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is of evil”  (Matthew 5:37, New American Standard Version).   This was our memory verse last week in my Bible study. It’s one that I had memorized before, and one that I hold in very high esteem. I think this concept,… Continue reading Integrity in a Facebook "Friends" World

What I’m Reading Wednesday: Genesis & Matthew

I decided, once again, to read through the Bible this year. This isn’t a new thing for me, and it certainly isn’t the first time I’ve done it. But the more I researched current popular devotionals, the more disillusioned I became with the drivel that’s passing for “studying God’s Word” these days. So I decided… Continue reading What I’m Reading Wednesday: Genesis & Matthew

And Here We Go…

Now 2015 really kicks into gear. Keith has basically been off work for the past two weeks. He’s worked, I think, four days. It’s been a crazy schedule! So tonight he returns to work, complete with a new “bid” (every six months the guys choose where they want to go every night; they are awarded… Continue reading And Here We Go…

Pursuit of the Proverbs 31 Woman: Week 1

Christin, at Joyful Mothering, is hosting this book study. We are studying “Pursuit of Proverbs 31” by Amy Bayliss. I have only read the intro and the first chapter, but so far I am loving this book. A number of years ago I memorized Proverbs 31:10-31. This was in the midst of our infertility struggle… Continue reading Pursuit of the Proverbs 31 Woman: Week 1
