Thoughts on Marriage: Christ First

The biggest takeaways from my 9 years of marriage have been monumental in strengthening my relationship with God and my husband, but none quite so much as the lesson that came in year 2. We had just moved to North Carolina where my husband was stationed at Camp Lejeune, as an 0811, field artillery cannoneer. … Continue reading Thoughts on Marriage: Christ First

Spiritual Warfare

It has been a MONTH! I tell you! Not only have my husband and I been striving to lean into Christ more than usual, we've faced opposition at almost every turn! We traded vehicles to significantly reduce our car loan debt. And it's like all the spiritual forces od wickedness decided to lay into us … Continue reading Spiritual Warfare

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

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

The Need for Discipleship

I have to say, for the majority of my life, I lived very sheltered. Not sheltered from culture, no! I went to public school, rode the bus (and saw and heard more than I'd ever want my own kids to) and attended my fair share of band camps. No, I was sheltered from the Truth. … Continue reading The Need for Discipleship

Obedience

Well it's good to be back home. We were finally given the green light to come home from the hospital and for the time being, Baby #3 is staying put. The whole experience was exhausting for me, even being on bed rest for 24 hours. I realized something though and God taught me through the … Continue reading Obedience

When God Disturbs Our Plans

Today was supposed to be a bulk cooking day to get some meals in my freezer for when baby #3 decides to arrive...  Instead, I've been in the hospital, trying to avoid preterm labor.  So far, still no baby. Which is great for my son- he needs to bake in there some more. But it's … Continue reading When God Disturbs Our Plans

Homestead Updade

It's been nice to shift our focus the last few weeks. Call it my nesting instincts kicking in, but I've been really in to increased productivity and efficiency as of late. Something about entering 2018 with three kids under 3 years old, a new business, and new livestock is motivation to run my life as … Continue reading Homestead Updade

My Daily Time in the Word

Ironic as it sounds, I've been praying for diligent faith, disciplined faith, and consistency in my walk with the Lord... That's coming from a week of missed Bible study and prayer... At least I'm self aware, right? Anyway, I've set up a prayer notebook as a sort of accountability tool. Used in conjunction with my … Continue reading My Daily Time in the Word
