School is starting and that means college will be commencing soon too. All of your friends are going off to college and you feel left out, shied into a corner and stuffed into a box with the rest of your homeschooled friends.

What’s worse is that maybe you’re old enough to have a boyfriend now and it seems like all of your friends have either been in a relationship or they are in one now...

From a Guy: How to Challenge the Guys in Your Life

Guest Post (By Beecher Proch)

Many of my girl friends are in mourning. They talk about their loss a TON (though they don’t go around dressed in black). In fact, we all talk about the loss. The reason for their mourning is simple: It’s the demise of manhood.

Made To Be Brave

Made To Be Brave

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..

Whisper Thy Peace to My Soul

 As soon as he received Anna’s telegram, Horatio left Chicago without delay to bring his wife home. Sailing across the Atlantic Ocean the captain of the ship called Horatio to the bridge. He informed Horatio that “A careful reckoning has been made and I believe we are now passing the place where the Ville du Havre was wrecked.

Are Your Dreams His Dreams?

 Is your will Gods own? Is your future, your dreams and desires God’s? And how can you tell? How can you tell if your will is what God desires for your life.

I spent my whole life running from Gods plan for me. I knew what I was supposed to do because it was in the Bible, it was what my mom had taught me, it was what God himself had spoken into me. To be a wife and mother and keeper of my home...
