Toxic Humanity

Look out, here comes my soap box. Apparently masculinity is toxic. I know, baby H... I'm confused/ surprised too... I learned this from a razor company. So, I guess beards are right out too? Who knew? I thought they made and sold shaving implements that assist me with my morning ablutions (yes, I used to … Continue reading Toxic Humanity

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

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

Back to Eden: Barrenness to Abundance

This is the start of our 3rd year on this property. Lately I had been really discouraged about all the things we need to do, and the things we haven't been able to accomplish (goats, windows, roof, doors, floors, kitchen, bathrooms, etc...) But then, I happened across an old picture of the place before we … Continue reading Back to Eden: Barrenness to Abundance

Female by Design

There is so much going on in our culture regarding sex and gender and identity and any combination of those subjects, that I can't speak to them all here. My primary goal in this post is to speak to the majority of women who are struggling with the typical daily struggles of life as a … Continue reading Female by Design

Taking a Break for Family Time

We've got a pretty seriously injured Papa on the homestead, so we're taking a break from posts for a bit to focus on helping him heal up. By God's grace, the situation was not nearly as bad as it could have been. My husband is feeling well so far, and is in good spirits. We've … Continue reading Taking a Break for Family Time

Family Worship

Our youngest son was dedicated to the Church on Sunday. It wasn't a baptism; as Baptists, we believe that baptism is an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace to be chosen as an act of obedience and commitment to Christ by the believer. So, by God's grace, Henrik will be led … Continue reading Family Worship
