Leviticus Week 2

Amy / April 30, 2015

As we have been working through the next five chapters of Leviticus I have been struck over and over again by the same point as last week. I do not take my sin seriously enough. This week I am seeing this theme along with a few other ideas. God cares about the details. God knows that we are NOT holy,…

Letting Little Ones Help Around the House

Amy / April 30, 2015

How do you manage teaching your little ones about working around the house? I have found that my youngest loves “helping mommy” in the kitchen especially with the dishes. She pushes a chair up to the sink and gets the scotch bright and scrubs away at whatever she can get her hands on.  I have 5 young kids. I have…

A Very Daily Routine.

Amy / April 29, 2015

Do you keep your family on a tight schedule?  Or do you just “wing it”, depending upon what is happening that day or week?  I am learning that the more scheduled we are on a daily basis the more I am able to get done, and the better our home seems to run.  I am learning that the schedule is…

Pulling the Weeds of our Hearts

Amy / April 27, 2015

Spring time often gets me thinking about weeds. There seem to be weeds everywhere these days. Here in South Carolina the weeds are popping up constantly. If you simply gaze over a field or yard it looks lovely. The fresh new green that seems to be covering everything. I love that new green color that only seems to appear in…

Leviticus: Week 1

Amy / April 23, 2015

  Leviticus is not an easy book. I will admit I wasn’t excited about diving into this book. While I was thinking about the book of Leviticus I was reminded of a Jewish lady I once worked with. I was talking with her about the old testament and made a comment about not liking to read Leviticus. (I was probably…

Walk This Way

Amy / April 23, 2015

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields…

A Stubborn Heart

Amy / April 17, 2015

While studying Exodus Chapters 6-10, I was struck with all the terrible details that happened while Moses attempted to convince Pharaoh to release the Israelites. These chapters have been portrayed in powerful ways in many different media forms. More than once I have been caught in the drama of emotions that come from watching the horrors that befell the Egyptian…

Responding Well to Hurts from Our Husband

Amy / April 14, 2015

Do you respond well when your husband hurts you? I usually do NOT. My first response to hurts from my husband is to get angry. My second response usually involves pouring on the guilt and making him feel awful for being so terrible to me. The problem is, the Bible tells us that we should not be acting that way. I…
