Moana 2016 movie

Surprisingly good seems to be the verdict across the board of those who see this movie. I said as watching it, “this is good! I think I’d like to own this movie!” and we bought it within a week. I’ve watched it almost four times this month because I like it so much! While it’s…

She Loved Much

A Pharisee had requested Jesus to dine with him. However, when Jesus arrived, He was not treated very well by the host! This would be like me stopping by your house when you knew I was coming. But instead of getting up to let me in, you simply unlocked the door and then returned to…

Dog Chase

1 Peter 5:8 NASB “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” Yesterday I went for what I thought would be a typical run on one of my normal running routes. When I heard a dog bark, I didn’t think much…

So Long Insecurity

So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore It’s been over a year since I read this book, but it was life changing. I was hoping to work on my confidence level and this book definitely helped! I typically like Beth Moore, but have not read many of her books. Yet I have gone through a good…

Competition

I find it so easy to be competitive with others. In the silliest ways I can feel like life is a race and I’m falling behind. If someone has more kids, I think I’m behind them. Or if someone buys a house before me, or a bigger house than me, I feel I’m behind them….

The Chicken or the Egg?

Another popular question: what came first? The chicken or the egg? I take the side of the chicken! God created man and woman from nothing and then they created babies, through Eve’s eggs (Genesis 1:27, 2:7, 4:1). Therefore, I believe God also created chickens and roosters first, before they laid eggs. Well, what if He…

Overcome

Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.” I have been utterly in awe of this verse lately. It speaks of the end times and people who follow Christ being faced with death for such…

Celebration of Discipline

Celebration of Discipline by Richard J. Foster It’s been nearly ten years since I first read this book and I still remember the experience as if it were yesterday. I picked it up thinking it was about incorporating discipline into one’s life. While that’s sort of it, it’s actually about the spiritual disciplines! In other…

Being Different

After being slaves for 400 years in Egypt and wandering in the desert for 40 years, the Israelites then entered the promised land of Israel. Roughly 500 years after that, they asked for a king. I am amazed at the people’s main reason for wanting a king: so that they could be like other nations!…

Home, Public, or Private Schooling?

What’s a Christian to do? Homeschool their children? Send them off to a private school? Or send them into the world of public schooling? From speaking with other parents I have come to conclude a few things as far as what Christians should do in this area. The answer? It’s different for each family and…

Illness

    Whenever I get sick I feel like I am going to die. My mind goes straight to the worst case scenario without a second thought! When someone close to me is ill, I think they are going to die! Maybe I find some comfort in preparing for the worst and being overjoyed at something less….
