Be A Better Wife Wednesday | Book Study: The Excellent Wife (Chapter 8)

A SAHM’s domain is her home. Any wife really, home is her thing.  There is the ol’  “But is it the woman’s responsibility” argument, which if you are a Christian I will not entertain because of the scriptural support (Mainly Titus 2 and 1Tim 5)  and if you aren’t then I will just leave that for you to hash out with your husband. I’m going to move forward in this post acknowledging a few truths: A wife should take care of her home We are not to be lazy. We are not to be “too busy”. If you have run…

The Bee Tree | Book Review |Children’s Literature

      One of my new favorite children’s books is The Bee Tree written by Patricia Polacco.  I honestly didn’t think I would ever love a book like I do How to Make and Apple Pie and Travel the World, but here is a definite rival. This book is not only well written with beautiful illustrations but the author takes you on such an adventure upon finishing this book you will want to run outside with your children and find adventure of your own.  How a book can so artistically twine the love of nature and the value of…

40 Days of Prayer | Christian Authors

  Heavenly Father, You know how I love books. You know how I love truth. You know how I love stories.  Only you know the struggle I’ve had with overcoming my desire to read everything I get my hands on.  I think of Paul and how he says, “All things are lawful, but not all things are beneficial.” Remind me to be careful what I choose to put in my mind, as careful with books as I am with movies.  The medium is different, but the result is the same.  Remembering all that, Lord I pray you would keep a…

Be a Better Mom Monday |Stop Yelling at Your Kids

If I’m honest with myself, and you, I struggle with raising my voice to my children. I am often tempted to speak in unkind tones and/or harshly to them.  About a year and a half ago my dad gave us a puppy. At the time I had a 3 year old, 2 year old and 6 month old baby. No, we aren’t still mad at him. 🙂 I have an uncle who always has great dogs. He trains them very well.  He’s a hunter and his dogs are just as controlled and obedient as you would expect a hunting dog…

Be a Better Mom Monday | Best Parenting Resources

  The truth is..wait for it…I’m not innately a good mom. I might not even practically be a good mom.  I’m slowing, by the grace of God evolving into the mom I want to be.  Desire for marriage and motherhood never reigned in my heart.  Actually there are a good many who will vouch for the fact, I used to hate children in general.  They laugh with moderate ridicule about the number of children I’ve birthed in the ridiculously short period of time.  The Lord most likely began the softening of my heart toward children long before I noticed, but…

New Year’s Resolution: Be a Better Wife

  I have high standards. So does God. I want to be a better wife. God wants me to be a better wife. My husband, though he would say I am a great wife, would appreciate if I was a better wife.     Why then, does it seem so incredibly difficult to:   Listen before I speak Seek to Understand before seeking to be understood Speak softly Not undermine my husband’s leadership Give him the benefit of the doubt Let him lead our family   And there you have my subjective list of ways to be a better wife.…
