How are you guarding your heart these days?

I am working on a Bible study guide of Proverbs. I find working with a study guide helps me understand and "pay attention" to the Word. I give thought to the Word. Otherwise, I tend to skim over the message and I don't really "listen" to the words. Proverbs 4:23 (NLT) is a plea from... Continue Reading →

When most people have forgotten or given up on their New Year's Resolution already this idea comes from Faith Barista: Take your One Little Word for 2011 and find it in the Bible. Find encouraging word in the word. Mediate on your word. Share your word. Display your word where you see it everyday. My... Continue Reading →

get rich in Him.

Have you ever read a passage of scripture in the Bible and  interpreted it a certain way? All this time you thought you were correct in your understanding on that scripture but it turns out maybe you didn't see it as clearly as you thought? I can say I thought I understood the story in...

live joyfully.

So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad.

faith in the future

It was the day before Valentine’s Day. I stood there in the bathroom reading the pregnancy test strip. It was screaming the unmistakable word: PREGNANT! My husband and I had planned on having two children, possibly three. And, here it was…baby number two on the way. Shaking, I walked into the kitchen where my husband... Continue Reading →

mama said there would be days like these.

There is a blood-wrenching scream coming from the other room. I know that scream. The girls are at it again. My youngest is in my oldest daughters bedroom getting to something she shouldn’t and the oldest isn’t having any of that! It seems all these two do these days is torment each other. And my...

summer reading list.

Today I took the girls to the library to sign up for the summer reading program. With the suggested summer reading list for 2nd graders in hand, we searched for 1 book off that list. The deal I made with Alex was she could pick as many books as she wanted but at least one has... Continue Reading →

a good book

I bought a new Bible I wouldn't call myself religious really. I did, however, grow up in the Nazarene Church, attending Sunday school, vacation Bible school, & Church camp. I once witnessed a baptism in the Lake of the Ozarks, where I grew up, when I was about 8 or 9 years old. It seriously... Continue Reading →
