Take Care…

It’s what we are doing!!!
We ARE growing in the grace & knowledge of our Savior!!!
Keep plugging away in the Bible Challenge with us. We are building major spiritual muscles & discernment that’ll be needed sooner rather than later!

Just a couple days left to read & reread 2 Peter.


Don’t Quit!

Getting tired? Feel like it’s more of a chore some of those February days to flip that Bible open and get fed?
Take heart and purpose to read it no matter what! You reap huge benefits when you dare to keep opening those pages… even though your body & circumstances are screaming that you don’t feel like it and don’t have time!

Pull up your chair and just look at how much we have already dug into at the table this year!… and we’re just getting started!!!

If you are new to the Bible Challenge it’s important to know that you NEVER fall behind and you are NEVER too late to join in. Check out the link in the bio and pick up with wherever we are. There’s a bunch of us ladies who are getting to know Scripture in an oh-so-simple but life-changing way.

Join us???

To-do List for Today

Want to have a productive day? It’s not about the food made or the cleaned house. It’s not about the prep work for tomorrow or that thing that has to finally get done and crossed off the list from yesterday. Even if nothing on the to-do list gets completed ~ if you get these things done, God considers it an EFFECTIVE & FRUITFUL day!
Ponder these verses a lot this week. Ask God to remind you of the eternal qualities instead of believing there’s more glory in the temporal.


It’s Not About You

Don’t be offended but…

… it’s not about you.
… it’s always completely and wholly about glory to the only One who deserves it.
… SO, proclaim HIM! It’s what you were chosen to do!

In whatever you do today ‘abstain from the passions of the flesh’ (1:11) that keep you from proclaiming Christ in word and deed.


1 Peter 1:13

Something for you to mull over and apply today from 1 Peter 1:13…

Check out the Strongs concordance definition of what it means to ‘prepare your mind’ in a nutshell:

I wish y’all could come over and tell me what you think about that. I’d love to hear your thoughts!


Young’s Literal

I love this verse as read from the Young’s Literal Translation.

As I understand it, this translation is directly from the greek & hebrew without changing it to appease our English grammar issues.
Cool, eh?


Have you pulled a chair up to the table of God’s Grace yet?
There’s a plate of unending flavour waiting just for you.

Make sure you read THIS before you move on with your day!


You Become What You Behold

My biggest regret is not purposing to put my relationship with God first at a younger age. The habits you form in your teens…or early twenties, or late twenties… carry you through the tough times that are sure to come.

Think of the godly woman you want to be when you get married, or when you have kids, or when your kids are teens or adults that need massive amounts of wisdom from you… that wisdom doesn’t come automatically.

You become what you behold. ❤️

I think of the Bible as a feast… I meet so many people that complain of spiritual hunger that is veiled as depression, anxiety, fear, bitterness… they think they need these unpleasant feelings and emotions taken out of their life by a change in circumstances. They don’t realize they are hungry and need to eat!

I point out a massive table in a King’s castle, laden with sumptuous delights of every kind, and say “Eat! It’s free to all who are willing! Anytime, just sit down and feast.”

And they say, “I don’t have time…”, or, “I prefer candy and chips…”, or, “I can’t unless it’s totally silent and a candle is burning and I feel wide awake and joyful…”, or, “I’m just too tired.” And they continue on in starvation. Or maybe they see other people stuffing their faces, so they crawl under the table and try to find crumbs that may fall.

I say, “Get up, you can come sit by me! You don’t have to scrounge for my leftover crumbs! You can have your own plate and fill it up. No matter how much you eat you will never be too full, but you will always be satisfied. And the table just keeps filling back up.”

This is what God’s Word is to us! Sometimes we need to acquire a taste for it, especially if we are used to junk food. But the more we eat it, the better it tastes.

The beautiful thing is that you’re never actually behind, you just left the table. Sit back down and pick up your fork- enjoy! This is mercy and grace. All is well! 🍞🍷

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. ~Psalm 34:8~
