4 Ways Being Modest is a Gift to Your Husband

Ephesians 5.8

You don’t have to agree with me on this, and yes, I am well aware that this road has not only been well-travelled, but that most women have chosen a different path.  Stay with me–you might not see it the same way I do, as I’m sure many won’t, but consider this: Your husband just might see…

The Pomposity in Parenting

Seek the Lord - Zephaniah 2.3

I prayed for my children before they were even born.  I prayed for their health and their influences.  I prayed for their future. I prayed for their parents–that we would be godly parents with wisdom to know how to guide each of their personalities. I prayed for their choices.  Not that they would be prevented…

Trusting God With the Details

Proverbs 19:21

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that God doesn’t still work miracles… For so many that have prayed–thank you!  For others who are just hearing of our plight, here is our story. God’s story. He is at work. He is alive and working in ways we don’t always recognize, but this one has just unfolded right…

You’re A Good, Good Father

Romans 15:13

This song. I can’t get it out of my head–and yet, I don’t want to. “You’re a Good, Good Father, it’s Who You are…” “And I’m loved by You, it’s who I am.”  [Chris Tomlin] Being a parent is the hardest, most rewarding job in the world, and the truth is, We all fail.  We…
