In our Sunday School class today, the speaker taught about Bible memory and suggested a simple way to help memorize verses. I need to work on memorizing a passage so I’m sharing the tips here. Read the passage aloud 3 times Write the passage as you read aloud 3 times Read what you wrote aloud […]

Treasures In Darkness

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Yesterday, in Bible study, the teacher shared this verse. I never remember hearing anything taught about it and obviously when I read it, it didn’t soak in. But I love it. I think it describes exactly what happens when we endure trials. There are treasures in the dark places and a wonderful benefit of trials […]

I Hate Sin

Monday, October 24th, 2016

I’m against sin. I’ll kick it as long as I’ve got a foot, and I’ll fight it as long as I’ve got a fist. I’ll butt it as long as I’ve got a head. I’ll bite it as long as I’ve got a tooth. And when I’m old and fistless and footless and toothless, I’ll […]

Back To School Verse

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

I’ve been praying about a great verse to base our school year on. The other night, I thought of one and then realized it’s a saying not a verse. “To know Him and make Him known” It’s a really excellent sentiment and based in Scripture but I’m back to praying for the right verse for […]

I KNOW Why You Did That!

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Recently, I had a situation with an online points website. I earned my rewards certificate and submitted my order and waited. And waited… And waited…. And waited some more. Nothing ever showed up. I looked into the process to have it sent again and finally it arrived. I put in the free code on Amazon […]

God’s Great Faithfulness

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016

Lamentations 3:21-26 21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22 It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 25 The Lord is good unto them that wait […]

The Elder Brother

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

James is reading through C S Lewis’ Screwtape Letters with a group of guys at church. Since I’ve never read it, I decided to read along as well. As I was reading this morning, I read the letter about how to cause disharmony in the family. The demon said, “Remember the elder brother.” Hmmm! What […]

How To Comfort Grieving People

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary. Isaiah 50:4 I started a Bible study titled Grace For Every Trial by Betty Henderson a few years ago. I notice that I haven’t finished it! She shared […]

Autumn Splendor

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

  At the end of the summer, the boys and I were at the park. Nathan noticed lots of acorns and I picked a few up to tell him what they were. I was amazed at the intricate detail on the cap! Talk about “the mighty acts of the Lord”! I brought them home and […]

When I Taste God’s Goodness I Shall Not Want

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

I heard this song for the first time recently and the message has made me think about it all week. The chorus says “When I taste your goodness, I shall not want.” So much to think about and I’m not sure I’ve even unpacked it all in my own mind but what a difference it […]
