Planting Small Seeds

Last month I wrote about my Small Seeds Bible Campaign for Gospel for Asia. I talked about reaching my campaign goal earlier this year, and why not up the campaign ante? Today I opened my email to find Small Seeds have blessed GFA missionaries once again by exceeding that Bible campaign goal of $200! What... Continue Reading →

Can you be too Christian?

So, have you heard of that Broncos quarterback named Tim Tebow? Since I live in Tebow Land, I have heard more than my fair share of Tebow news. The good news is the media is finally taking notice of the Denver Broncos. The bad news is they aren't really paying any attention to the game. ... Continue Reading →

What does “Sunday Best” mean anyway?

I've heard some say to attend church you must "dress the part". That means you must dress up in "proper" church attire...your Sunday best. Apparently that includes no Twilight t-shirts, no ripped jeans, no bedazzled pink skull and cross-bone shirts, no cut-offs, and no low-cut shirts showing off what God gave you. But wasn't it...

Handmade faith jewelry

Once upon a time I was a crafty-girl. I even sold my "wears" at craft fairs for several years. Then, I had kids. I love 'em but they really are a time suck... Lately I have been inspired with handmade jewelry. I am almost obsessed, particularly with "faith" jewelry. I've been experimenting with different techniques.... Continue Reading →

Surf around the blog world and it won't take you long to see that just about everyone is writing about the book "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp.

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 →

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. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun. Ecclesiastes 8:14-16 Thoughts on living joyfully: Honor your... Continue Reading →

soft answers jar reward

Tired of the angry words my family was using with one another, I got the "soft answers" jar idea over at http://www.spelloutloud.com {here}. The concept comes from the Bible verse: "A soft answer turns away wrath" - Proverbs 15:1 I printed the verse out and mounted it to an old vitamin jar. Whenever one of... Continue Reading →

tree of life

“Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.” Proverbs 15:4 NLT I’ve been loosing my temper lately. A lot. I am ashamed to say that I find myself yelling at my kids a little more for the littlest infractions. Sometimes I catch myself in the middle of a psycho-mommy moment... Continue Reading →
