Advent Finger Wreath

One of my favorite things about being a girl is painting fingernails! God gave us a ready-made canvas right on the tip of each finger to bring a little beauty to all the work we do with our hands (dishes, laundry etc.) I have a Christmas tradition in my home that makes use of our girly nature. It is a way I have tried to bring the advent tradition home in a creative way that my little girl will enjoy. {Read More}

Relying on the Resurrection Life of Jesus

” ‘By this we believe. . .’ Jesus answered them. ‘Do you now believe?’ ” John 16:30. “Now we believe…” But Jesus asks, “Do you…? Indeed the hour is coming…that you…will leave Me alone” (John 16:31-32).

How I Said Goodbye to Sugar, Part 2

Yesterday I began sharing how I said goodbye to sugar. It didn’t take me long to realize that I didn’t want to live without chocolate. Viewing it as medicine, I replaced milk chocolate with dark chocolate. If it’s the only chocolate you allow yourself, you will come to love it. Obviously, even this is to be eaten in moderation.

Terry’s Chicken

My mother has this really neat cookbook she got a long time ago, I don’t know exactly how long ago, but it was around while I was still a teenager and that was twenty years back. She would add the recipes along with her personal notes. I’ll always remember the comment to the side of this particular recipe “Terry’s favorite, men love this.”  As an FYI, women love this too, as do kids of all ages. It was written for {Read More}

The Patience to Wait for the Vision

“Though it tarries, wait for it…” Habakkuh 2:3 “Patience is not the same as indifference; patience conveys the idea of someone who is tremendously strong and able to withstand all assaults. Having the vision of God is the source of patience because it gives us God’s true and proper inspiration. Moses endured, not because of his devotion to his principles of what was right, nor because of his sense of duty to God, but because he had a vision of {Read More}
