A Peek Inside My Life



(Steve and I at a wedding reception)


It has been almost a year since I have done one of these posts! So much has happened and there is much to tell...but for now I will share what has been going on these past two months!

Be Ready for Many Trials



Are you indeed Christ's sheep? 

Then be sure you will have many a trial. 

Where would be the value of a Savior, if there were not enemies to be saved from?

Yes! You will have many a trial!

Savoring the Slow



"I think the world today is upside down. Everybody seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater development and greater riches and so on. There is much suffering because there is so very little love in homes and in family life. We have no time for our children, we have no time for each other; there is no time to enjoy each other. In the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world."


~Mother Theresa




10 Ways to Teach Your Children Godly Character This Summer


Today I wanted  to share a few ways to teach your children godly character through the summer.
 
This might be your first year that you purposefully decide to try to instill more character in them--or you just might feel your children need to focus more on it! (Don't we all feel that way sometimes?) Our children are definitely not perfect and we always should be trying to reach their hearts with the truth of God's word.

Christian Mystery Books for Kids




Are you looking to help your children get some more reading in this winter?

You might want to pull them away from from the TV and video games and give them a good book to cozy up with instead.

I remember growing up and how I just loved reading a good mystery book!  Back then I had read all the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy books I could find--and when I read the entire collection, I would start all over again. Such great memories of my childhood. You better believe that when my children learned to read those were some of the first mystery books I introduced them to!

Your True Character Exposed




Let it be a settled principle with us, never to be satisfied with mere outward church-membership. 

We may be inside the net, and yet not be in Christ.

Within a Yard of Hell




"Some want to live within the sound of Church or Chapel bell;

I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell."






~ C.T. Studd 1860-1931




There are so many people that need to hear the Gospel.

I was one of them within that yard.

Only a Dad



It's almost Father's Day so we wanted to honor all the fathers who work hard and love their families and sacrifice everything for them.  

We hope you enjoy this poem:


Only A Dad



Only a dad with a tired face,
Coming home from the daily race,

A Champion in Disguise




There's a champion in disguise among us.....it is likely this champion is not obvious to you. His deeds are courageous and life changing for those to whom he gives his life. He is disguised as a father. His humble cloak conceals his greatness, yet his deeds, in all likelihood, will form the character of the next generation. His deeds include wiping noses and changing diapers, teaching his boys to work, and his girls to guard their dignity.
