Christ is all…therefore

21 ½ Years ago on August 7th, I went to one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to. The officiant was someone I deeply respect and the people getting married have helped define who I am as a person and a mother, so I remember the [...]

Be Holy

We are going to finish up our study on 1 Peter 1:13-16 with the highest expectations given so far. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;  16  for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” (Leviticus 11:45) How do [...]

Do Not Conform

The 1 Peter 1:13-16 passage has been great to clear out the fog and help me refocus my mind! The New Living translation paints the next verse in a very practical light that helps us see ourselves and our children more clearly. “So you must live as God’s obedient children. [...]

Immanuel in our Hoping

“Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.” Hebrews 11:1 There have been so many unknowns for all of us in 2020. Will our family get the virus? Will my children get to go back to school full-time or do [...]

Immanuel in our Relating

Immanuel in our relating. God is with us in our relationships. God is with you in your strained relationship with your step-mom who never wanted to be a mom in the first place. He is with you as you mother without a maternal example to follow. God is with you [...]

Immanuel in our Staying

Pausing again to study our foundational passage through the lens of Immanuel’s presence with us in Deuteronomy 6:7-9, look for the times we are instructed to talk to our children and remind them of God and His commands while we stay at home. "Repeat them again and again to your [...]

Notable Attitudes Inside the Home

As we have stood on our porch and looked beyond our sidewalks at attitudes of greed, selfishness, and arrogance, now we turn ourselves back around and look inside our own windows. We may see the same attitudes happening inside our home. Just before school began, I heard a handful of [...]

Notable Attitudes Outside the Home

COVID-19 has highlighted some notable attitudes in our world. We should think through these attitudes in order to help our children process what they are seeing and experiencing. We have seen greed in grocery hoarding. This behavior goes beyond emergency food storage. This has to do with fear and panic [...]
