Revelation: Chapters 12-13 Symbolism

Last week I needed to take a little break from Revelation. There was a lot going on around me. But I am back to it this week. If you've had a hard time following along with all the symbolism, like me, chapters 12-13 are no different, but I powered through it, and so glad I... Continue Reading →

The World Needs a Christian Version of Hygge

Hygge, pronounced (Hue-gah) is a Danish word originally derived from an Old Norwegian word meaning well-being and protection from the outside elements. Denmark has notoriously cold, long winters. The concept of hygge has been used by Danish people to help mentally combat the brutally dark, relentless winter season, and fill their homes with comfort and... Continue Reading →

Revelation: The Seven Trumpets

My husband is a dream teller. He loves to tell me about his crazy dreams. He remembers these with vivid and striking details. As he is rambling about his dreams, he admits it makes zero sense to him.

Revelation: The Seven Seals

Do you ever think back on your childhood/teen years and think may, just maybe, you are remembering events wrong? Especially now that I am the big 5-0, I think back and wonder.

Exploring Revelation 1:1-8

Revelation scares me. Ever since I was a teenager. Right around the time I began my teen years, we stopped attending our little Nazarene Church in the heart of the Ozarks. Instead, we chose to watch church from the comfort of our living room on the console TV. The Worldwide Church of God with Herbert... Continue Reading →

Bible Study: Revelation

I have avoided studying Revelation for one big reason. I tried reading it as a teenager—and as a highly impressionable teen, it FREAKED ME OUT. 😬 The horsemen of the apocalypse and the plagues was scary. Also, take in account it was 1980-something and the fear of Russia dropping a bomb on us was a... Continue Reading →

Who was the real Mary Magdalene?

The Bible doesn't tell us a lot about Mary Magdalene's past. Her back story is hidden from us, left to speculation by many.  Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute, Jesus' wife, the most loved disciple, and Peter's adversary? We can speculate all day long, or we can look to the Bible for clues about the real... Continue Reading →

Philippians: The Back Story
