Living The Battle of the Bathsheba Bible Story Here and Now

ArynFaith, Christian Nonfiction14 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

5 simple steps to financial freedom, really? Financial freedom is a dream for some, a reality for others, and seems completely impossible for many. Slavery to debt, comfort, “more” etc, means we don’t have the freedom to be generous, or obey God when he asks something of us. 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. ? Please note that I received an advance copy from Celebrate Lit, though all thoughts are my own. I have also included affiliate links … Read More

Pruning in the Bible: 1 Important but Challenging Topic

ArynFaith, Christian Nonfiction22 Comments

Have you ever wondered about those verses on pruning in the Bible? I have. I’ve heard messages explaining it. Trying to help us understand. What does prune mean in the Bible? They make me curious. Because I have not spent any time in a vineyard, what I know is only through reading about it.   According to several dictionaries, the answer is to: cut, shape, smooth, trim, to cleanse or purify   Sounds painful. I mean who really wants to be cut and trimmed? But the benefits sound very good! Shaping and smoothing, cleansing and purification are all good things!   … Read More

8+ Go-to Bible Storybooks

First off, I struggle with finding fun Bible stories for kids. Sometimes I get new children’s Bible story books home and find out it’s not theologically sound, or it’s totally watered down. I’ve gotten a few that had me itching to throw them away, and if you know me and books, that’s just not normal! I Love Books. I can rarely stop in the middle of a book, and won’t unless it hits my 3-strike tolerance for inappropriate content. Poor writing or typos don’t usually phase me. Theological issues, well, that’s the only other thing that can stop me. Especially if it … Read More
