There’s this HUGE blogging conference happening this weekend called Blissdom. So for all the ladies who couldn’t go we are having a Blizzard Blog Hop.

My name is Courtney and I have been married to my high school sweet heart for 13 years, I homeschool my two sweet peas and I’m a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute.

What Sundays Were Like In the 1950’s

On the Rachael Ray Show I was dubbed a “1950’s Wife“. But my grandmother (pictured above), a mother of 4 (one baby is not born yet in this photo), is the REAL 1950’s wife.

The Importance of Intimacy In Marriage

I Corinthians 7:5 says:”Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.” I’ve received a lot of emails asking me about intimacy since the Rachael Ray Show aired in November. Here’s a few of my thoughts on this topic, plus I share in the video my all time FAVORITE book on the subject! If you have further questions, I prefer to dialogue via email rather than on the “world wide web”. […]

Alex and Brett Harris are twin brothers who as teenagers wrote the book “Do Hard Things“. This book inspired teens around the world to make the most of their teen years. But their readers were left with the question – “How do I get started?” Thus, the book “Start Here” was born. The Harris brothers blog at Rebelution and this is how they describe their book: “We wrote this book because we know a lot of you want to do hard things for God, but you don’t know where to start.
