Pretty Woman – Rahab

(AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is the only R-rated movie I’ve used in this series. I’ve only seen it on TV so some scenes may have been deleted. The rating code mentions sexual material, but since it’s about a prostitute that is a given. Made about 30 years ago, the version I saw is mild compared to current movies or TV.) The 1990 Garry Marshall-directed romantic comedy Pretty Woman is a semi-Cinderella tale. Except the sweet heroine isn’t scrubbing fireplaces and being {Read More}

Peasant Style French Onion Soup

My 13 year-old would live off French onion soup if it was allowed. You would think making homemade French onion soup would be easy. Apparently not for me. Nothing I have made over the years compared with restaurant quality French onion soup. I did the only thing I knew to do. I started buying it in a can hoping to find the version restaurants use. That is until I found this gem of a recipe. It is perfect. It is beyond perfect–it is {Read More}

If you aren’t registered to vote, sign up now. I know some of the reasons you might not want to bother voting. “I’m just {Read More}

Nativity Alive: The Shepherds Hurried into Christmas

* Affiliate links included. With a dozen sheep in my backyard, I appreciate the shepherds. These lowly young men with little education and spiritual knowledge ate simple foods, endured harsh weather in primitive wild lodgings, and defended themselves against animals, lions, bears, wolves, and thieves, while protecting animals they didn’t own. Clothed in heavy cloaks, carrying staffs and rods, their familiar presence and voices were a reassurance to their flock. They cared for expectant ewes, newborn lambs, and sick animals {Read More}

About Ginny Holcombe

First of all I am a daughter of the King! My relationship with Jesus is the best and most important part of my life. I’m a mother of 3 and grandmother of 7. I’m also a sister, aunt, mother-in-law, and friend. I can’t leave out Cinnamon, my Jack Russell/Basenji who touches me daily with love, companionship, and laughter. Not to mention ideas for my blog! God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve Him as a ministry assistant and receptionist at Porter Memorial Baptist Church. This gives me the opportunity to encourage and assist people from all walks of life and I’m thankful for the opportunity to see Him at work among His church. I am a woman who has been broken by life and circumstances but made whole by my relationship with Jesus Christ. My deepest desire is to use the gifts of writing and speaking to encourage women to cultivate a deeply intimate relationship with Jesus and to allow the Holy Spirit to guide them through each day. I enjoy sharing the lessons He brings to my life on my blog: butterflyginny.blogspot.com and my Facebook page, Gazing at Jesus. I’m thankful to be given the opportunity to share what God is teaching me on MMCW. I pray that His love, grace, and mercy will touch you every day.

Why Read the Book of Revelation

* Affiliate links included. When I told my friends I was reading Revelation, their responses showed why they shied away from reading the last book of the Bible. “I don’t understand it,” said one. Another replied, “It’s too scary for me.” I can relate to their comments, but perhaps they missed the prologue. Revelation is the only book of the Bible that comes with this promise to readers and listeners: “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this {Read More}

More Facebook, Please!

* Affiliate links included. Everyone has their own opinions on the usage of social media. You love it, hate it, or lie somewhere in between. Currently, my involvement on social media is pretty limited. You won’t regularly find the latest thing my kid said, an exercise selfie, or what I’m having for dinner. There is nothing wrong with sharing those things. That just isn’t what I think to do in the moment. I am actually trying, though, to share more {Read More}
