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.

Don't ever forget what God saved you from.

When we get all shiny and polished up for church.

Don't be cowardly.

Get onto the battlefield.

Remember that there is a real hurting world out there that is dying and needs to hear about Jesus.

And help snatch them from that eternal fire.

The way that *YOU* were once were saved.

If you are a yard from hell, please READ THIS NOW.

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.

Graduation Gift Ideas

Do you have a high school or college graduate this year?

This year we are graduating our twin sons, Josiah and Christian. I have been experiencing a roller coaster of bittersweet emotions ranging from complete giddiness that the year is over to the unexpected tears when I realize they won't be joining our homeschool next year. Their senior year went by pretty quickly with three sports -football, basketball, and volleyball, and the blur of taking senior photos and prom at the end (they both had dates this year!) and all the group hangouts. It was such a fun ride and went by so fast.

How to End the Homeschool Year on a Fun Note

Yesterday was the last day of homeschool for us, we had a great year and added in so many new things and really just had so much fun with it! If you are thinking about homeschooling, I highly recommend it--it can have its good days and challenging days,  but it is definitely worth it!  I wrote a post about how to get started if you are not sure along with video tours of homeschool rooms, and a big list of supplies to start you out if you need help.

Memorial Day - Freedom Isn't Free {& Helpful Resources}

The Memorial Day weekend is upon us and I thought it would be a great time to share with our children the true meaning of the day. 

We all know that freedom isn't free and that many had to pay the ultimate price with their lives. 

My father fought in the Vietnam War and one day while they were there he was in a helicopter close to the ground with his best friend and his friend was shot in the head right in front of him and didn't make it.

In Hard Times Mothers Set the Tone

They were struggling through hard times and could barely put food on the table.

Struggling pay check to pay check and the ends just never seemed to meet.

The Instruction of My Mother

"I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn words of my good mother. It was the custom on Sunday evenings, while we were yet little children, for her to stay at home with us, and then we sat round the table, and read verse by verse, and she explained the Scriptures to us.

Dear Mothers of Young Children

"Mothers of young children, your work is most holy. You are fashioning the destinies of immortal souls. The powers folded up in the little ones that you hushed to sleep in your bosoms last night, are powers that shall exist forever. You are preparing them for their immortal destiny and influence. Be faithful. Take up your sacred burden reverently. Be sure that your heart is pure and that your life is sweet and clean.

God...made childhood joyous, full of life, bubbling over with laughter, playful, bright and sunny. We should put into their childhood days just as much sunshine and gladness, just as much cheerful pleasure as possible. Pour in the sunshine about them in youth. Let them be happy, encourage all innocent joy, provide pleasant games for them, romp and play with them; be a child again among them. Then God's blessing will come upon your home, and your children will grow up sunny-hearted, gentle, affectionate, joyous themselves and joy-bearers to the world."

~JR Miller, Homemaking

A 19th century preacher
