Why Pray

Why Pray

It was not until I became a teenager that I began to realize the importance of prayer.  Even then, prayer was not a huge part of my life.  When I got married it became more important and when I had children the urge to pray grew even stronger.  With every passing year I am learning just how much prayer needs to be a tremendous part of my life. Why?  Why pray? When I pray at times I can literally feel…

It’s The Holiday Season!

It’s The Holiday Season!

How can it already be the holiday season?  This year seemed to fly by just like last year!  In our home we LOVE the holiday season….. yet now that I have a baby who has a birthday the day after Christmas I don’t mind the holidays holding off just a little while.  I don’t want her to be 2 yet 🙂  Not for the reason of “oh no, the trying twos are coming!” because I don’t know that they will…

My husband gently…

So you think being faithful to church isn’t important?

So you think being faithful to church isn’t important?

I would like to challenge that thought process for a moment.  Church, the body of Christ IS important!  If it wasn’t Christ would not have said in Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”  Have you taken a look around you lately?  My friends, we are in the last days! According to research done I should be…

Staying At Home isn’t what America wants Mama’s to choose?

Staying At Home isn’t what America wants Mama’s to choose?

I read something today that got me a bit worked up. It was about Mama’s who choose to stay home with their children and the quote was, “Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make”. Hold on to your stockings ladies because that definitely rubbed this stay at…
