My Grandmother’s 90th Birthday Party

This past weekend we had a family reunion.  It was my Grandmother’s 90th Birthday. Here’s my mom and her three younger brothers with grandma.    Grandma has a been a rock to the whole family.

The Proverbs 31 Woman – Week 10

This week we are going to focus on verse 27. Proverbs 31:27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. It is true that we as women – when we grow idle – can take our eyes off glorifying God and off  our own family’s needs and end up looking at what others are doing and become jealous or discontent.  We don’t want to spend our free-time making ourselves miserable!  Even our free-time can be productive.  We can read an inspiring book, talk with a friend on the phone, or create something with […]

proverbs 31 26 when she speaks her words are wise

Welcome back! We are on the home stretch and up to verse 26 in our Proverbs 31 study!!!
