Drawn to Christ and His Word

I grew up in and around the Church. As a young child, I was taught the books of the Bible, I knew about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I was aware of "spiritual vocabulary"; words like sin, sacrifice, faith, Calvary (not cavalry- it's a pet peeve of mine when those two words are confused.) … Continue reading Drawn to Christ and His Word

Faith in Difficult Circumstances

I had some blood work done recently. It was prompted by the random seizure in November and a series of autoimmune flares apart from my usual food allergen triggers. Of course, I always jump to the worst case scenario. It's my way of bracing for bad news and making any surprises good ones. But, my … Continue reading Faith in Difficult Circumstances

How I keep my Children Healthy

This post is a little ironic because my middle child was in bed with a pretty high fever as I wrote this... But, I know several stay-at-home moms who almost avoid getting together because every time they take their children out in public, they return home with some kind of viral or bacterial illness. It's … Continue reading How I keep my Children Healthy

Christianity in the Public Sphere

There has been a wave of controversy (ugh, I can't stand that word, and I know I'm the last to the party on this one) over Lauren Daigle's response in her Ellen interview regarding homosexuality as a sin. Now before I go further, this post is not about Lauren, it's about the Church as the … Continue reading Christianity in the Public Sphere

Homestead Update

Oh, goodness. I've been hard at work laying foundations for New year routines. My number one priority this year is my prayer life and relationship with God. I've been getting in the practice of waking up before the children (at least the youngest two- my 3 year old isn't much of a sleeper) to spend … Continue reading Homestead Update

Using My Prayer Guide

Last summer I really dove into the spiritual disciplines, specifically that of prayer. I set up a prayer notebook and dedicated specific times of day for pursuing prayer. What I found during that time is that: 1.) I'm not by nature a morning person. I really struggled to wake up and get to my morning … Continue reading Using My Prayer Guide

Inductive Bible Study Worksheet

Studying the Bible can be intimidating, especially for new Christians. Or maybe you've been a believer for a long time but never had someone disciple you in the area of personal Bible study. God has given me a love for teaching and a passion for His Word. The inductive study method is the method I … Continue reading Inductive Bible Study Worksheet

Showing Love This Christmas

I am not an incredibly girly woman. Yes, I like doing my hair and make-up or, "gettin' all fancy" as my son calls it. Yes, I occasionally paint my fingernails. I even spent the Valentine's Day my husband was at bootcamp watching P.S. I Love You with my mother in law, while enjoying a diy … Continue reading Showing Love This Christmas
