Then There Is Also Childlike Forgiveness

My thoughts: My own daughters’ complete unhesitating ability to forgive someone who has sinned against her is such an inspiration to me. We are called to have childlike faith and in that I believe we are to forgive like a child, too. Of course, many offenses require us to be healed by God but we should […]

What Does the Bible Say About Judging?

I recently read an article about the topic of judgment. It seems as though many people misunderstand what the Bible teaches on this topic. Matthew 7:1 explicitly denounces judgment, as do many other verses throughout the Bible. Suffice to say that these two verses, as examples, give us plenty of reason to constitute judgment-free parameters […]

Cursing and The Power of Our Words

“For the word of God is alive and powerful.  It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow.  It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Hebrews 4:12 How true it is that what is in your heart comes through in your words and tone.  When you are […]

How to Be Still for God Amid a Noisy Life

Not long ago, I was in my van with a 15-year old friend of the family and my kids. She and I were chatting a bit, the radio was on, and each of my children were singing―not along with the radio. The three of them were each singing their own song. I look over to […]

Gossip: More Serious Than We Thought

We have all done it. Gossip. It’s something that even the secular world understands as something we should not do. There seems to be a common understanding that gossip is wrong. Nevertheless, we have all partaken in gossip and you can count on the fact that everyone has been the one talking at one time […]

The Power of Prayer

“Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”  Ephesians 3:20 (ASV) One of my favorite verses! This is a truth statement that I have memorized in order to set my mind in its proper place when my life-God […]

The Facts Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Want You to Know

Many people would argue the benefits of Planned Parenthood to include services other than abortion. I would argue, however, that no amount of health care justifies what abortion really is: murder. Now before I lose you, please let me gently walk you through why I’m saying this and the proven science behind it. These are […]

3 Reasons NOT To Watch 50 Shades Of Grey

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner Hollywood is taking full advantage. The new movie, 50 Shades Of Grey is coming out the day before and people will be lined up to be the first to see it. It is the day to watch a “chick flick”, after all. The Loft (which is very similar) […]

The Many Ways Moms Influence Their Daughters

I remember my littlest being my biggest imitator. She would walk around the house in her prized “clippy clops” with her purse and play phone in hand. A determined little one who had places to go and things to get done, she simply needed a car ignition big enough to fit the toy keys she […]

“I’m the Lord’s Servant”

To me, there is nothing more enjoyable at Christmas than reveling over the birth of Jesus, our Savior and King! It seems every year, something more profound reveals what was unnoticed to me before. It was a few years ago that Mary made center stage. It wasn’t so much as her being chosen or what […]
