Christian Hedonism in Church History

Blog_9.2.19_Christian Hedonism in Church History

A view of Christian Hedonism in Church History. Augustine: “Man is one of your creatures, Lord, and his instinct is to praise you…he wishes to praise you. The thought of you stirs him so deep that he cannot be content unless he praises you, because you made us for yourself and our hearts find no rest until they rest in you.” (Confessions Book 1.1)...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 5, Discipline


"Bryson, what are you thinking? Why would you do that? Stop tackling your sister; she obviously doesn’t like it! Amaya, STOP whining! Use your words!” I don’t want to admit how often my parenting looks something like this and has been void of any real parenting. I naturally approach discipline attempting to achieve behavior modification; often this is acco...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 4, Catechism


Children are sponges. Research has proven it, and we know this by experience. We all have songs, chants, and facts we learned as children that are forever imprinted on our brains. As faulty as our memories become as we age, those imprints from youth remain. This is why catechism is such a powerful tool for our children’s instruction!...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 3, Circle Time

Blog_5.28.19_Circle Time

In the little years of our parenting, my husband worked especially long hours. He would get up for some Bible time and exercise in the wee hours, and then he was out the door for work well before the kids woke up. In the evenings, he was often home just in time for a late a dinner. This meant the kids typically had about an hour of his time before they went to bed. I was g...

An Attitude of the Heart

Blog_5.15.19_An Attitude of the Heart

First and foremost, to be without spot or blemish is a foundational attitude of the heart. It’s the heart that says, “My life is not my own, I belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.” Everything flows from that attitude of the heart....

Monday Madness

Blog_5.6.19_Monday Madness

My children thrive in routine. For us, that means after a weekend full of irregularity, Mondays are always full of madness. It seems that on Mondays, more than any other day of the week, my children need constant correction. And this on a day when I’m trying to get my house back in order from the same busy weekend, can often make for some explosions as my kids interrupt ...

Thou Shalt Remember


Peter said that in both of his letters, "I am stirring you up." In other words, Peter is saying, "the reason I have written you, is so that I can stir you up to remember…” This is Peter’s purpose statement. His aim is not to give new truth. One commentator has said, “Peter was not endeavoring so much to open up new vistas of truth [but] to stir up the minds of the ...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 2, Family Worship

Blog_2.15.19_Family worship

I am so grateful that the Lord put me in a home where my dad regularly led us in family worship growing up. I know that this is not the norm for most people today. The family is being more and more torn apart. Not only in terms of redefining what the family is, but also in terms of the growing demands for our time, and the endless onslaught of entertainment that seem to cr...

True Christianity


True Christianity is the miracle of new life. We can’t earn this life. We can’t obtain this life by our own performance or sincerity. It comes completely by a gift of free grace. That’s how Peter opens his letter in 1:1, “To those who have obtained a faith.” In other words, True Christianity is something that happens to you, just like birth. ...
