DevotionalseDHoM

Today, let’s talk devotionals for homeschool moms. We get overwhelmed, and we don’t need to be! There is a certain pressure in life, that we’ve gotta do it all. Keep a well-run house, play with the kids, educate them both academically, spiritually, and with morals and life skills, take care of our husbands and extended families, and have a rich spiritual life at the same time. We feel responsible for maintaining balance, being ‘all-in’ where we are in the moment, and juggling everything.  But we can’t. We can’t do it all. Be all. That’s Jesus’ job. And if we keep … Read More

The Real Easter Story: The Top 10 Best Easter Story Books

children reading, Best Easter Story books

The Real Easter Story is so special. I don’t think we truly grasp just how privileged we are, to have such free access to forgiveness and love. And if we as adults struggle with wrapping our minds around it, then we need to think about our kids. The meaning of Easter for kids can be overwhelming. But, between the ages of 4-14, they are far more likely to understand and accept the truth, and run with it their whole lives, than if we wait until “they’re old enough to understand” or some such sentiment. That is exactly why I love … 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

How to Set Goals with God’s Grace and Favor

ArynFamily, Christian Nonfiction14 Comments

Okay, so this is a little hard to write. I’ve been ‘in church’ since well before I was born. But in over 30 years, I was still childlike in understanding God’s grace and favor. I’ve had the Sunday School answer, a simple, childish acceptance, which is great, but we’re called to a combination of childlike faith and spiritual maturity. (Matthew 18:2-4, Ephesians 4:11-16, Hebrews 6) I didn’t know what I didn’t know. But now I’m excited. Every time I do learn the Biblical or historical meaning of a word, I find my Bible reading time so much richer. It’s something … 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

Before Christmas: Journey Back to the Beginning

ArynFaith, Christian Nonfiction1 Comment

I can’t quite believe that today’s the last day of #ChristianBooktober!! And we’re celebrating with “Before Christmas” which I’m very excited about! I love the fact that someone has written an ‘Advent’ book, that begins at the beginning of the Adventure. It’s traditional to begin in Nazareth, or even in Jerusalem with Zacheriah. But there’s so much that comes before that, that sets the stage for Christmas. Christ With Us. (In case you were wondering, Christmas is my favorite season!!!)
