Titus 2 Blessings…

Titus 2 ministry can strengthen Christian families and the Church as a whole. Older women, when your children are grown, your ministry to the family isn’t over—now it really begins! You are now more equipped than ever to share what you’ve learned, to help young families flourish. Young women need you! It’s not “time to retire.” You can have a hand in building …

God is in Control!

I have been under the weather since late Christmas night and spent all of yesterday in bed. This was frustrating for me for a number of reasons. One being that our precious friends, the Evans, moved to Tennessee yesterday and I had intended to send them off with food and a proper farewell. Things didn’t quite work out the way I had …

Successful Christianity: Just Add Water

My husband posted this on his blog today and I think it’s a MUST READ!

This past Lord’s Day, I preached from a difficult text, Ecclesiastes 7:13-18. This section presents a number of challenges for the reader. We are presented with such things as:

"We’re Not Gossiping. We’re Networking."

Along with the growth of the Internet, the potential for sin has grown. Rather than gossiping with just one neighbor at a time, now the blogging housewife can count the hits on her site meter as she multiplies her possibilities.

Gossip and slander are nothing new. Technology hasn’t invented a new sin (Ecclesiastes 1:9). However, as we improve our ability to communicate with numerous …

Bearing False Witness

Q. 145 – What are the sins forbidden in the ninth commandment?

A. The sins forbidden in the ninth commandment are, all prejudicing the truth, and the good name of our neighbours, as well as our own, (1 Sam. 17:28, 2 Sam. 16:3, 2 Sam. 1:9,10,15–16) especially in public judicature; (Lev. 19:15, Hab. 1:4) giving false …

Blog Bombs!

My husband has some great thoughts on the importance of having a gracious spirit toward the brethren.

Friends, I encourage you to be gracious with one other. We should strive to vigorously promote the ideals and doctrines that we believe to be consistent with Scripture. If that means making a case for courtship or homeschooling or simple head coverings, great! Or, if that means another makes a case for dating or organized schools or frilly hats, wonderful! But, make the …

And Enjoy God Forever!

They changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Romans 1:25

I think we’re just too blessed. Yep, that’s it. We have too much stuff, too much comfort, and too much pleasure for our own good. Why is it that when we are living the easy life, we …

A Journey of Faith

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is
overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:2.

The grace of God rested conspicuously upon my friend, Colleen Moeller, the morning we spoke on the phone; her voice was humble and soft and there was no hint of fear or bitterness. …

Lord, May I Never Have Enough Time…

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about time and my seemingly endless quest for more of it. It seems to me, that if God provides all of our needs and I find myself complaining about my lack of time then I should seriously consider why that is.

With the sale of Homeschooling Today magazine, Books on the Path, and our tea room in Texas, the …
