We Need To Resist!

I was reading Hebrews 12 yesterday…and when I read verse 4 my heart sank.  It was one of those moments where you feel like you have never read that verse before and God’s power strikes you to the core! “In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.” – Hebrews 12:4 I re-read it a few times and then proceeded to share it with my husband.  I realized that we all struggle with sin, but how many of us resist it to the point of bloodshed.  We don’t need to ask what that looks like because Jesus showed us!  He leads by giving us examples and when it comes to sin, we must not regard it lightly.

Weekend To Remember By Family Life: Review

A few months ago my husband and I found out about Family Life and their passion to help build healthy, God-centered marriages.  We became huge supporters of this ministry immediately.  A few weeks later, we went to FUSE, the marriage ministry at our church, and a couple, who use to attend our church, were guest speaking.  They shared a beautiful testimony with us, explaining how God led them to Family Life and how it has blessed them in many ways.  We continued to find out more about Family Life, including their marriage getaway called Weekend To Remember!

It seems as though by human nature we covet, envy, get jealous and crave the next best thing.  How frustrating is it when you finally have enough money to buy an iPad and a week later Apple launches the iPad 2?  Or when you look over at your girlfriend’s wedding ring, you begin to compare carats!  What about the conversation of Kitchen Aid appliances verses your hand-me-down/thrift-shop appliances? Or, fashion says skinny jeans are in and when you get around to owning a pair, the MC Hammer baggie pants win over the trendsetters. I was struggling in January with being content.  I have always struggled with my body image; never really comfortable

Knowing God Helps Me To Be A Loving Wife

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” – 1 John 4:7-8 Do you KNOW God? God is love and if we know God – interacting with Him on a daily basis in an intimate way – than we will love! It is very important that we understand that knowing OF God and knowing God are very, very different. For Jesus says, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that

Love Is Artistic

I LOVE art!  I especially LOVE this quote by Van Gogh, Love is artistic.” There is something so beautiful between two lovers.  I value the love of my Heavenly Father and the GREAT, sacrificial, unconditional love He has for me!  I also strive daily to express that same kind of love toward my husband.  I’m nowhere near perfect, but love is THE greatest gift any man or woman has to share… and I don’t want to waste that!
