More Love: Less Comparing {Genesis 29-31}

More Love Less Comparing

Have you experienced a mean girl in your life? Mean girls watch and compare.  They are discontent, jealous of anything good that comes your way, insecure and keep score.  Mean girls happen outside the church, inside the church, and even in the family. What we need in this world is more love and less comparing.  Competition can sneak up on us when we least expect it. Maybe someone else’s Facebook status leads us to envious feelings or someone’s new decorating makes us insecure about our home.  Maybe it’s the success of a sister or the failure of our own dreams […]

Today Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen is back with a comfy side dish for us!  My favorite part – you don’t have to peel the potatoes! Easy peasy! Janelle writes: This is a very simple recipe you can make during the weeknights. I use peanut oil to fry potatoes because it makes them crisp!   You can make this side dish for dinner or breakfast. If you are making them for breakfast, let me suggest to fry bacon in a skillet, then fry your potatoes in the bacon renderings. Then, crumble the bacon on top. (*This is a naturally […]

Did I Marry the Wrong Person? {Genesis 24-25}

Gary Chapman marriage quote

Do you ever have hard days in your marriage and wonder if you married the wrong person? Perhaps your spouse has failed to meet your expectations or completely changed into a person you do not recognize. Then what? Today, we are covering the reading from  Genesis 24 & 25.  We see a beautiful love story as God orchestrates the finding of Rebekah to marry Isaac. Abraham’s servant is sent to the city of Nahor. These are the words of the servant: “Let the young woman to who I shall say ‘Please let down your jar that I may drink,’ and […]

Making Your Home a Haven – Week 3 {Family Fun Night}

Clue

As a little girl, every night my family ate a home cooked dinner around the dinner table. We weren’t allowed to watch television and my mom always took the phone off the hook so there were no distractions. But on a few special nights, my mom would put a table cloth on the family room floor and she served dinner there. The change of pace, the ability to watch television while we ate, and a family game afterwards — made for much excitement in the eyes of this little girl. And so the apple doesn’t fall too far from the […]

When Christianity and Culture Collide {Genesis 19}

when Christianity and culture collide

  In our culture, the only wrong – is saying something is wrong.  Tolerance is held as the world’s moral standard. But so far in Genesis, we have seen that God was not tolerant with Adam and Eve’s sin. God was not tolerant of Cain’s murder of Abel. God was not tolerant of the wickedness during Noah’s day. God was not tolerant of the pride of those building the tower of Babel. And in this week’s reading, God was not tolerant of the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah. In God’s great mercy, He sent 2 angels to rescue Lot and […]

Comfort For Those Who Have Had a Miscarriage

Sad woman calling on the phone

  I remember sitting in a conference room surrounded by a sea of women.  The speaker asked all the women who had suffered a miscarriage in the past, to please stand.  As women slowly scooted out their chairs and stood to their feet, the tears began to flow. My dear friend next to me stood and 2 more at my table of 8, stood as well.  Then we looked out over the room and nearly half the room was standing.  There was not a dry eye in that room.  It was on that day, my eyes were opened to how […]
