God has been working on me lately in my parenting and also how to get deeper in His Word, through some great books lately and community He has surrounded me with. If you are looking for some helpful books on how to study the Bible deeper, I recommend reading these two books (they really go great together) and I will be sharing more about Deeper Waters as it releases soon:
And for moms in today's world, this is a great read, which will release soon:
In homeschooling news this week, well it has been going good, except we did not like our spelling curriculum, so I sold it and we started new, it is Charlotte Mason spelling through School House Teachers, and this week so much better! If you don't know about School House Teachers, go check them out, it is online downloadable curriculum, videos, education and Bible studies for all ages. I have been a member for two years, and so far we have used some of the art lessons and video lessons for science and Bible. We are also using the grammar lessons from there this year, which is Charlotte Mason styled learning. It has really been great supplement material to use with our main core Sonlight. However, you could make your whole curriculum from there site as they have all subjects.
- The God of the universe, is all powerful and all loving! I praise you!
- When you obey God, you will find Him at work in your life, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him. When you live a life that is clean and pure on the inside, you will shine more brightly on the outside.~Women Who Move Mountains
- We clearly need God, not just once for salvation, but constantly and continually and in more ways than we can count.~Gospel Centered Mom
- Love must be God-centered, or it is not true love. ~ John Piper
- God does not command you to be successful. He commands you to be faithful.~Fixing My Eyes On Jesus
The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, ‘O God, forgive me,’ or ‘Help me.’ -Billy Graham
What does faith look like for you in the ordinary and mundane of today? https://www.reviveourhearts.com/true-woman/blog/instant-coffee-instant-faith/
There are 23 words every actual waking second yanking on our attention spans, and 4 billion people every minute on this planet of 7 billion are clicking and liking words on Facebook, and there are words falling on us, failing us, failing to soften the soil of our being so abundant life can break forth.
When there is an illiteracy of His Word, there’s a warped reading of everything.
When there is a daily reading of God — we can read all the crazy of life.
Read God — and you can read life. http://annvoskamp.com/2017/07/whats-the-greatest-challenge-facing-people-of-faith-the-church-right-now/
You’re confused, and I am the truth.
You’re fearful, and I am the life. http://www.desiringgod.org/articles/the-most-controversial-claim-jesus-made
