In the Church we seem to forget not only the church's role is but also what everyone else's role in the Church as well.

Roles Of And In The Church

Church meetings oh how I strongly dislike them and at the same time oh how I see their importance. There is something about a Church meeting that truly makes my skin crawl. Then again maybe it is just me. But, it seems to be that during those Church meeting we really begin to see the true colors of people. Those who will work and want to serve. Those who are worried more about superficial things instead of furthering the spreading of God's word into the community. And then there are the … [Read More...]

The Church was set up to be a safe place were we could lead others to Christ, rejuvenate ourselves and to bond with fellow believers. Somehow the Church has forgotten it's purpose.

Introducing……In The Church Series

Last week all my children decided it would be a great time to end up sick. Now, I don't think they seriously sat up one night and plotted against me but the fact still remains they were sick. I could say that I was able to handle it like a champ but the fact is I didn't. I grew tired and weary. As all the little ones started getting stronger and better I was able to let out a sigh of sweet relief. That was until I realized that our oldest was still refusing to eat because simply put he was … [Read More...]

Why I Don’t Want To Serve My Husband Leftovers

My husband is a very patient man when it comes to me. He goes right along with most crazy ideas that I have and often times really has no objects.

To the persecuted a simple reminder that you are loved.

To The Persecuted

This week's Matthew reading we have seen so many wonderful things. We were able to revisit Jesus's birth (Matthew 1) and admire the love that Joseph not only had for Mary but also the Lord. We were then shown his faithfulness to follow God's instructions (Matthew Chapter 2). We even got to celebrate Jesus's baptism (Chapter 3) and cheer as Jesus's put Satan in his place (Matthew 4). However it was Matthew Chapter 5 that brought me to tears.  “Blessed are those who are persecuted for … [Read More...]

That way not only are they having fun but they … [Read More...]

I was informed that I was spoiling my husband. So I thought I would share with you ways that I spoil my man in hopes that it will give you some ideas.

Are You Spoiling Your Man?

Recently I was accused of spoiling my husband. At first I was a bit confused, after all I often feel as though I am the one that gets spoiled. I mean my husband works hard to provide my needs, cooks for me on occasion, brings me home flowers often for no reason at all and he even cleans occasionally when I am looking a bit overwhelmed. I am a spoiled and dare I say even pampered. Yet, when it was turned around that I have been spoiling my husband I just didn't see it. You see we shouldn't … [Read More...]

To often we forget that just like us that God has details and plans on the way things should go.

Serving A God Of Details

This week we as a family are hosting a huge event. Our second oldest son turned 5 on Feb. 14 and we are finally hosting his big birthday bash. Of course being my child he had to be different and want a theme that was no longer mainstream which has caused this momma to panic as I tried to plan and organize his big event. All the details have been overwhelming to say the least. It has also made me very thankful that we only host big events like this on monumental birthdays and has a family decided … [Read More...]

As the world becomes so corrupted by sin I find myself grieving for the lost and the misled. Here are some ideas on how we can reach them in a loving manner

Grieving For The Living

Here lately I have been so consumed by grief. Not because of things, motherhood or past events. I have been in grieving for the living. Those who have decided to turn their backs on their Biblical training and all the principles that they were taught when they were younger. I have been in grieving for those who refuse to acknowledge God's truths that are all around them and I am grieving for those who have decided to be part of the world and not part of the Word. Worldly people are … [Read More...]

Sometimes comforting someone who is hurting can leave us feeling helpless. Here are some ways that I have found to provide comfort to the hurting.

Comforting The Hurting

During some points in our lives we will come across someone who is hurting. Someone who is hurting so bad that they question God and His decisions. Someone who is in so much pain that it leaves us to begin to also question ourselves why it is that they are suffering so. Being in this position is hard. No scratch that it is heartbreaking. Because it is in this season we are left to wonder what it is that we can do to help ease that person's pain. After all as I have said time and time again we … [Read More...]
