The Blessing of a New School Year

The summer is flying by and school will be starting in the next few weeks for most of our children. We will be shopping for supplies, new clothes, etc., to make sure our children are off to a great start for the next year of their education. As I began to think about the hustle […]


Reclaiming Biblical Values

A shift is being felt in America.  A shift away from biblical values.  A shift away from what was once understood. (It really started years ago.) Christians in the United States have stood idly by thinking that this would never happen.  Many thought that the U.S. would always be a “Christian nation.” The problem has […]


Memorize It! Mondays – Numbers 23:19

We’ve been looking at houses to buy in our new hometown over the last couple of weeks.  We have searched through the online listings.  We have walked through numerous homes.  This last week we narrowed the list down to our top five. I have teetered between the top two houses for various reasons.  I just […]


Memorize It! Mondays – Matthew 7:7-8

I love to hear the prayers of children.  I especially enjoy hearing the prayers of our daughter.  Some nights she just says her standard prayer of “thank you, God, for everything.”  Last night, her prayer was different.  Every night during our Bible time, we each take turns stating our needs.  Then we pray together as […]


Memorize It! Mondays – Hebrews 1:3

Our daughter was asking questions tonight about being “born again.”  Her Sunday School lesson had been about Jesus and Nicodemus.  She knows many things about who Jesus is, but sometimes I wonder how much she knows about his divinity since we often talk about his humanity in Bible lessons in the church. What do you […]


How to R.E.A.D. the Bible with School-Aged Children 1

A few days ago some friends of mine were talking about various book series that their children enjoyed.  One mom asked if there were any books she should read aloud to her children. Immediately, memories flooded my mind of books that teachers read to us while we were in school.  I can remember the anticipation […]


When We Delight in Him

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4 Psalm 37:4 has been one of my favorite verses for over 15 years.  I don’t remember the circumstances surrounding my life at the time that it stood out to me, but it is one that often comes […]


Memorize It! Monday – 2 Timothy 3:16-17

How was last week?  Were you able to memorize Psalm 119:11?  Hiding God’s word in our heart is an important part of knowing Him.  If you haven’t finished last week’s verse, try to finish it today.  You can start this week’s verse as soon as you’re ready. This week’s verse emphasizes the truth of how […]


Scripture Memory Series

Memorize it! Mondays 1

Margaret went to the store one afternoon.  She needed to pick up a few things to finish her preparations for dinner.  When she arrived at the store she realized that she left her list on her kitchen counter.  Margaret knew she didn’t have time to return home for the list, so she took a piece […]
