I don’t know about you, but I’m glad Halloween is over. There is clearly a need for some light in the darkness. The decorations grieve my spirit because they reveal a dangerous lack of understanding of God’s holiness. It seems that the more accepted woke culture is in our society, the more satanic and demonic […]
Walking with God
Walking with God incorporates all aspects of being a Christian. It involves having a healthy prayer life. Actively cultivating a habit of reading and studying scripture is essential. However, the outward proof of our relationship with the Lord is in our actions and heart attitude. Our testimony is strengthened when our responses to life’s trials draw us closer to the Lord and cause us to humbly submit to his sovereignty. Our walk with God will be visible to others then.
I have learned over the years that this is developed through trials and struggles. The posts I write here are pieces to my personal story. God has brought me through many dark years life as a wife and a mom. There has been lots of refining fire. However, the close walk with the Lord that has resulted made it all worth it. I pray that my story will encourage you and spur you on in your journey. If you find yourself in tough times, I hope you find strength in knowing you are not alone and God will see you through.
So far in this series about Christian patience, we have learned its role in helping us endure trials, discovered it is something even King David had to learn, and got a glimpse into what it takes to develop it. Now we will discover why God develops Christian patience within us during seasons of waiting- waiting
Once upon a time, God taught me the concept of Christian patience. Well, He began teaching me. I thought I understood it and even wrote about it. You can read that here. But then life got hard, really hard. I suppose the test comes after the lesson. Life gets hard, and eventually, we become tempted
My dad’s faith became sight on April 27th, just a little less than two weeks ago. My mom and I said goodbye to the man who had been our protector and leader. It is bittersweet because while we’ll miss him, he has lived his whole life for the Lord and he’s in heaven pain and
My salvation story could be considered rather dull. I’ve heard so many begin the same way mine does- “I was born into a Christian home and went to church all my life….” And yet it’s not about what we’ve done or what has happened to us. Instead, what God has done in our lives to
I am starting the new year contemplating the scariest verse in the Bible as we move through the third week of January. How we are this far into January is beyond me. Anyway, Happy New Year! I hope you had a merry Christmas and an enjoyable holiday season. I wrote a blog post at the
It is always inspiring to see how God worked in the past to provide something needed in the present. Kind of like that saying about how years before Zaccheus climbed the tree, someone had planted it. It’s even more remarkable when God does something like that in my own life. Have you ever had any experiences where you realized God had moved weeks or months before and people or things were just in the right place when you needed them?
Two concepts and topics recently collided for me. God blessed me by connecting the dots between consecration and His goodness. As I usually say: perspective changes everything. One song that we sang in worship time on Sunday morning at church was unfamiliar. It was I Shall Not Want by Audrey Assad. In it she sings

This week’s post is a little different from normal. I have three things I want to share with you that have been really encouraging to me over the past few weeks and I hope they encourage you, too, in this life journey we are on! First, The Homeschool Teaching Summit 2.0 that is happening this March
