ArynChristian Nonfiction, Faith20 Comments

Life can be scary and full of stressful things, whether natural like hurricanes and tornadoes and viruses, or manmade like terrorist activities and wars. But the God who created the world HAS NOT ABANDONED US! I’ve always been fascinated by the many times in Scripture where something awful is happening and then, my 2 favorite words:   But God (But The Lord)   But Jesus   Then the whole story changes. There is rescue. There is hope. A miracle. We can choose Faith over Fear, and REJOICE   What does that mean, though? Well, let’s look at a few of my favorite scriptures, … Read More

Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Girls

Today we get to explore the new NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Girls! I don’t believe my idea of a “perfect Bible” exists. If it had all of my favorite features, it would be WAY too big and heavy for everyday use. Things like maps and definitions, cross-references and mid text explanations and footnotes, wide margins, color-coded, places to draw and take notes, etc. which is why I’m okay with having several Bibles, and taking advantage of Bible apps. I’ve been brave enough to write in my Bible for about 20 years now, but I haven’t had one actually … Read More

Living The Battle of the Bathsheba Bible Story Here and Now

ArynFaith, Christian Nonfiction16 Comments

Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes to understand them. Dive deep into the Bathsheba Bible Story and walk away with new understanding! Bathsheba in the Bible does seem to be a battleground story. You could argue about whether she was innocent as a lamb or guilty of every sin in the book. There’s also all of those crossroads David ignored, where he chose not to fight his desires. But take the time to get to know more than just the Bathsheba Bible story, but also the woman behind them. See yourself in her, and wow!! I was a little … Read More

ArynFamily, Christian Fiction, Christian Nonfiction23 Comments

Christian Fatherhood, Biblical Fatherhood is not automatic. There is work and Sacrifice. Failure and fun. Hope and prayers and perseverance. Knowing what that actually means and seeing what it looks like in today’s world go a long way toward making Christian Fatherhood possible. So let’s review what the Bible says about Fatherhood, and then check out some great books with good Christian dads!  The Biblical Definition of a Father I would say the biblical definition of a father, a good one at least, has to begin with some of the more general instructions to all believers: 1 John 4:7 NIV — Dear friends, let … Read More

Here’s 5 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom

ArynChristian Nonfiction7 Comments

5 simple steps to financial freedom, really? Financial freedom is a dream for some, a reality for others, and seems completely impossible for many.

But God designed it so we don’t have to be slaves of money! To have freedom is possible! With that (and some legalese) here is today’s Celebrate Lit book review. ?
