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. ...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 1, The Gospel


My husband makes fun of me because I hate instruction manuals. “Just let me figure it out; I learn better that way!” I insist. Besides the fact I may ruin (have ruined?) a project before I even begin, he tells me that I miss out on so much by not reading the manual and thus not understanding the maker’s intentions for and capabilities of a device....

The Joy of the Lord

Blog_1.30.19_The Joy of the Lord

This weekend’s sermon really broke my heart. I’ll commend it to you here in its entirety. In briefest summary, we see from John 18:12-27 the account of the split screen drama of Peter’s unfaithfulness and three time denial of Jesus, all the while Jesus is standing as the faithful groom to his bride. If Peter, Jesus’ special disciple, can do this, how much worse am ...

Our Stubborn God


Many of us have never thought of stubbornness as a positive quality. In fact, the first definition listed for "stubborn" in Merriam-Webster is "unreasonably or perversely unyielding: MULISH" Yikes! But the second listed definition is this: "justifiably unyielding: RESOLUTE." Now that is a different case all together. That is the kind of stubborn our God is. Justifyably uny...
