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
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
I'm excited to say that the PDF Bible study I've been working on for over 6 months is finally posted!
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
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
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
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
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
My husband is studying theology and Biblical studies through Liberty University right now and one of his classes assigned a spiritual gifts survey as homework. The idea behind the survey is self knowledge of what God has divinely gifted you to do within the Church and in life. Out of curiosity, I took the survey … Continue reading Spiritual Gifts
What. A. Week. Just an absolute crap fest of a week. My life proves Murphy's quantum Law: "Murphy's Quantum Law: Anything that can, could have, or will go wrong, is going wrong, all at once. If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a catastrophe or pregnancy, then someone will do it." So there … Continue reading Children, Go Where I Send Thee.
