Biblical Womanhood and Christian Living
Hospitality On the Tongue
Your family ought to be the primary recipients of your ministry of hospitality. God has entrusted you with the especial care of your husband and children (or eldery parents or in-laws or whoever else may dwell within the four walls of the place you call home). It is always important, as Christians, to reach out to guests, neighbors, strangers--but never to the neglect of those nearest and dearest.

"A Lady's Choice"
Miss Lydia Slatton has written a beautiful, moving poem for all of us, reminding us that, without Christ, we are nothing and can do nothing. This poem is a wonderful affirmation of Christ's beauty and holiness, which He freely gives us, His children. Thank you, Lydia, for writing this wonderful poem!

Is Openness to Children Essential to Godly Marriage?
In recent years, I have heard many differing opinions on procreation and it's relationship to marriage. Let's assume that a couple is both young and healthy enough to procreate. They've fallen in love. They're ready for a lifelong commitment. They get married. Generally, at this point, the marriage will be consummated through sexual intercourse. Does procreation have a place, yet? According to God, Holy Scripture, and the Church, the answer ought to be yes. For many couples, however, the answer is no.

The Prodigal Father: Loving the Unrepentant Sinner
As Christians who serve this incredible God of love, we are called to be like Him, to forgive each other as we have been forgiven (Matt. 6:12, Luke 7:27-42). Moreover, we are to forgive anyone who asks us, not just once, but as often as they turn to us for forgiveness (Matt. 18:21-22).

Dedicated Daughters Series

Encouragement for the home-focused young woman in an unsupportive environment. The purpose of these posts is to encourage and support those young women with passion for family, home, and femininity; women who desire with all their hearts to dedicate their single years to studying the arts of homemaking - but can't hope to receive understanding and support from those who surround them.

Wasting time in relationships that lead nowhere
Our culture pressures us to start relationships early, and date aimlessly. A 16-year-old girl is pressured by her peers and encouraged by her parents to have a boyfriend, when it's clear to everyone it will probably not lead to marriage. This is supposed to give us "valuable experience". She is supposed to "practice" the sacred relationship she will have with her husband, knowing it's not for real and won't last, then throw it away and begin new "practice" with someone else! I don't know anything more senseless and ridiculous. Yet this is so common nowadays people don't even think about it anymore. [ Not for young readers.]

Cultivating The Rich Christian Home
The rich full life that can consist only in a Christian home is available to me and everyone else with Christ as its center. As a Christian home we should be the role models to this perishing world and NOT imitate it. The world fills its time with empty pursuits and busyness to fill the void that only Christ can fill. Our homes should be the model of the beauty, rest and joy which radiates from our Saviour!!!! What is your home radiating today? Believe me, it matters to Christ.

Role Models for Young Women
Recently, I have been pondering the influences that young girls and young women have been surrounded by, in the media. A few extremely "popular" females come to mind: Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, and many other young women that are having devastating effects on the younger female generation.... One of my favorite passages in the whole bible is found in Proverbs 31, in fact I even use it as the verse for my e-mail signature. Proverbs 31:30 "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Today, I looked up the definition of favor in the Strong's exhaustive concordance, it translates as follows: grace, charm, elegance, and strangely enough, acceptance . How interesting. So, the Bible clearly tells us that seeking after "acceptance" is deceitful. That's worth saying again! Wanting to be accepted or popular is deceitful! That is what these girls are chasing, acceptance and popularity. This powerful little passage in Proverbs 31, provides us with a very precious promise. It tells us that if anyone wants a guaranteed way of being praised, they can simply choose to fear the Lord.

In the Shadow
It seems to me that the majority of people believe that humbleness is not an asset. Many want the spotlight, to be the focus, to be center ring. They want attention, fame, and glory. I suppose it could be argued that this is a result of a culture obsessed with self, but I tend to believe it has much more to do with the human condition. We reject God's awesome sovereignty and, instead, do our best scramble up onto a man-made throne... only to inevitably topple off later.

SAHM---Not Enough, or Everything?
Why do we feel that being a stay-at-home mom is not enough? Why do we insist on filling our time with "extracurricular" activities? As a stay at home mom, I don't want to be just a working mom without a job. Don't get me wrong; yes, what I'm doing is work. But one reason I'm staying home is to do just that; to care for my home, my husband, my child. I can't do that if I'm running here and there all day, every day.

Catching A Vision
Do you have a vision for your life, or do you simply flounder around and follow the world's trends hoping to find joy and fulfillment? Without a clear, Biblical vision for your life you are groping around in the dark, searching, but never finding. As women we are bombarded by the world's messages of what happiness is and how it is attained, but what does the Bible have to say about it?

Children - fruit of love in the holiness of marriage
A few months ago, when my now-husband and I were in the midst of wedding preparations, I faced more than one pair of raised eyebrows and the question, "are you really going to have a baby right away?" - implying that it would be riskier than bungee jumping and more reckless than drunk driving. I know we're not alone, too - not long ago, I received an email from a young lady who, only a few weeks before her upcoming wedding, received dire warnings from family members telling her it would be unwise to have a baby as a newly married couple, and that she should "just enjoy married life" first.

The Blessing of Inequality
Husband and wife were never meant to lead their own private lives in parallel, sharing a home but splitting the chores evenly, keeping score. Not only can we never come out equal, both because the value of any thing or task is relative and because each human being is uniquely gifted and challenged, but husband and wife were never intended to be two reflections of the same thing. They were meant to be complementary individuals who joined together to complete each other: "They will become one flesh."
