Introducing January’s GMG Book of the Month

The Book of Exodus One Chapter a Day!

  I loved our time together in Genesis this fall – so the natural progression is to keep going into the book of Exodus. We will be in the book of Exodus this January and February,  then on March 2nd, we will begin the Gospel of Matthew –which will take us up to the week of Easter.  Just perfect! I am so excited about this winter session! Questions: What happened to the book of Psalms? Psalms does not require a straight through reading in order to be understood in its context, so we will revisit it again later in the […]

6 Benefits of an On-Line Bible Study Group {Psalm 16}

6 Benefits of an On-Line Bible Study Group

Psalm 16:3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight. Do you delight in the fellowship of saints? The Psalmist writes in Psalm 16:3, his delight is in the saints. Have you been some place talking to someone new – perhaps at one of your children’s events, at work, in the grocery store, or in an airport and you realize the person you are speaking with is a believer?  Immediately a wall comes down and there is a connection. The Holy Spirit does that. He knits our hearts together because […]

How Long O Lord? {Psalm 13}

How Long O Lord?

Psalm 13 1 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, 4 lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,” lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken . 5 But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall […]

Alexander’s surgery is over and so far so good! Thank you for all of your comments, many prayers, encouraging words and stories – they are SO appreciated!

When the Wicked Prosper and God Seems Far Away {Psalm 10}

When the wicked prosper and God seems far away

Do you find yourself troubled by the direction of our world? Turning on the news these days is a painful experience. Watching the oppression of women, children, the poor, racial tensions, and persecution of Christians around the world, is enough to make us all sit back and say: “God, where are you?” The corruption I see in our government mixed with the required political correctness in the media, suppresses truth and makes my heart hurt. A reader wrote me and asked, “How do we live with joy when all this is in our face and growing? How do we not […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Family photo (2)

I hope you are having a restful holiday. We spent Thanksgiving Day at my oldest sister’s house, so I apologize there will be no devotional covering Psalm 7 today. Here’s our family on Thanksgiving Day. I am SO incredibly grateful for them! We had a large crew at my sister’s house but I was so busy talking –I failed to take very many pictures (we were there for 9 hours and talked NON-stop!).  So just imagine – 16 people for dinner, opening in prayer, a big turkey, TONS of food, loud laughter, a revolving door of friends coming through – […]

The Fight For Joy {Psalm 5}

Psalm 5-11 rejoice

{Today’s Good Morning Girls reading is in Psalm 5.} Psalm 5:11-12 “But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield.” I remember when I got to high school, suddenly I started struggling to be the cheerful little girl I once was.  I smiled on the outside but on the inside I was sorting through my faith, boys, grades, and finding my path […]

You Intended to Harm Me But God Intended it For Good {Genesis 50}

you intended to harm me but God intended it for good Genesis 50:20

  {Cue the Confetti!!}  Today we complete the book of Genesis! Genesis is a LONG book of the Bible – 50 chapters! So if you read it all with the GMGs – high five – way to go! Let’s take a look at this final chapter because Joseph makes a powerful statement to his brothers when he says in verse 20: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good.” {if you are reading this in an email – join me here for this 3 minute video} Joseph’s brother’s feared he’d settle the score.  Joseph had become one of […]
