Today We Remember…

Pause for a moment…Be silent. Today we remember. (Taken from Matthew 27) We remember… the betrayal for 30 pieces of silver the flogging the crown of thorns the purple robe the sign “Hail, King of the Jews!” the strike on Jesus’ face the crowd shouting “Crucify Him!” the long walk to Golgotha carrying the cross the nails in his hands the nails in his feet DARKNESS the words “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” the temple curtain torn in two from top to bottom the earth trembling the guards exclaiming “Surely he was the Son of God!” […]

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Philippians 2:9-11 “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Have you bowed your knee? If you haven’t or refuse to…one day you will…but then it will be too late. Are you 100% sure you are going to heaven? The Bible says in I John 5:12 “He who has the Son has life; he who […]

Girl – You NEED A Bubble Bath

“Go take a bubble bath.”“You should go to bed early tonight and get some extra rest.”“Let me get you a warm cup of coffee, a book and you sit down and take a break.” No one ever says these things to you do they? And so – I’m guessing you rarely do this. You rarely surrender to your weariness. I know this because you are just like me. I mistakenly believe that I can go and go and go like the Energizer bunny without consequence. Electricity has created an artificial day during our nights. And so rather than resting like […]

I’m 35 Today!

I woke to a new beginning. The age 34 is behind me and today I’m 35! A lot happened in my life last year – I began my first year of homeschooling and LOVED it! We moved to a new home. The blog grew with the Rachael Ray appearance. The Good Morning Girls groups began on-line and grew to over 600 ladies this past summer! My husband began a new business. We lost two loved ones to death. We made many wonderful memories as a family and have grown spiritually. I grew as a wife, mom and friend. It was […]

I Am the Donkey

I am taking a break this week from our Proverbs 31 series to focus on the message of Easter. Next week I will return to this series. Word Filled Wednesday:I Corinthians 3:5-7 “What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe – as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So, neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who makes things grow.” As I reflected this past Sunday on John 12:13, Palm Sunday […]

What is Ministry?

I received this poem in an email yesterday right when I was sitting down to write my next blog post. The words rang with such truth that I thought – “this must be tomorrow’s post”. As you read this poem – apply this first to your ministry as a wife and mother and second to those inside and outside your church. WHAT IS MINISTRY? Ministry is…. Giving when you feel like keeping… Praying for others when you need prayed for… Feeding others when your own soul is still hungry… Living truth before people when you cannot see results… Hurting for […]

Mailbag Question: Where To Start Reading In The Bible?

Here’s an email I received in my mailbag: “I have never even read the Bible before! I start but I can’t understand it or it’s so blah. Do you have any recommendations about where I should begin at? …I really want to understand the word of God. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I just don’t know where to begin.” – Heather Heather – thank you for the excellent question. The Bible can be a challenge to read because it does not read like an ordinary book from cover to cover. It was written over thousands of years, by nearly […]

When Will Jesus Come Back?

As I read Luke 21 Jesus says “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven…At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in the cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Then Jesus tells the parable of the fig tree in verse 21 “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. When they sprout leaves, you can […]
