I’m Just Not Attracted to Him…

I’m Just Not Attracted to Him…

{Guest Post by Kristen Clark}

“I am just not attracted to him…” Have you ever said those words about a guy before?

Do you know a guy who is really awesome in every way (he loves the Lord, is godly, kind, desires to grow, etc.), but you just aren’t attracted to his outward appearance? I have been there and know exactly what that feels like.

Before I got married, God taught me some hard truths..

How to Avoid Cat Fights with MOM!

Moms. They can be totally awesome, totally awkward and totally hard to get along with! Now, my mom and I can be the best, best of friends. At other times it can feel like two lionesses prowling around the house! Come August, it will be 20 years since the day I was born and met my mother… And I can’t tell you how thankful and grateful I am to call her mine. She’s everything I hope and wish to be..

A Lovely Atmosphere at Home

A Lovely Atmosphere at Home

Cooking, cleaning, dishes, laundry, children and chores day in and day out can get discouraging and tiresome. We wake up everyday and are faced with all of the same duties as yesterday. This makes it even easier to lose the vision of virtuous, beautiful, homemakers. We forget why we do what we do. Our mission here at A Lovely Calling is to keep that vision alive and refreshed. Our homes and all..

A Whole New Perspective on the Proverbs 31 Woman

Proverbs 31…We know it like the back of our hand. We’ve read, studied and dissected this lone chapter of the Bible set apart specifically for women. I personally grew up listening to my mom read this chapter over and over and listened to her teach it to women. I’ve done countless studies on the “Proverbs 31 Woman” and tried earnestly to meet the expectations set for women in this..

One of Those Days

One of Those Days

We all have “one of those days” sometimes – days we simply hope we can survive, while still maintaining some portion of our sanity.
If you’re having one of those days (and even if you’re not), I want to encourage you to lean on God for your strength.
Being a mom, daughter, or sister is hard sometimes, but don’t forget that God has a purpose for ALL of your days; even when it’s “one of those..

Life, Scratches, & Band-Aids

Life, Scratches, & Band-Aids

I remember getting cuts as a little kid.  I’d be playing outside, just running around, and would find myself sprinting inside with a scratch on my finger, as if the world were about to end, asking Mom to fix it.  After all, Mom can fix all hurts and scrapes.

First thing, she would take me to the sink to run clean water over my cut.  I was thinking this whole “coming to Mom to get this fixed”..

To My Mother

~ T  O   M  Y   M  O  T  H  E  R  ~ Erin Hallahan

Love, how vast a word, how deep it’s meaning.
Could I tell you it’s significance? I cannot.
But to me, “love” is defined in you clearly.
Each child you nurtured in deed and in thought.

As the grains of sand on the shoreline,
So is your filial love for your dear ones.
How can I repay you? How could I outshine?
We will care for you-all your..

Things Your Mother Should Have Told You

25 THINGS YOUR MOTHER SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU

1. Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

2. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!

3. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better..
