Can you hear Him calling? Can you hear Jesus saying, “Child, come into my presence. I wan’t to spend the day with you. I want to be in your thoughts and your words, but first you must come to me.”
If your like me when I wake up I usually want to lie in bed as long as I can and shut the day ahead of me out of my mind. My first morning thoughts are not on Jesus. I want them to be so badly though!..
I’m turning the world off
Embracing the silence
Walking away from all the voices
That are screaming in my ear
I’ve been too caught up
I’ve been so stressed out
And all of the noise replaced the whisper
That used to be so clear
So I close every door
And put my face back on the floor
And I’m in Your arms
Where I belong
There’s no other place for me
Than right where You are
Some things just don’t..
~The Kitchen Truly is the Heart of Home~
Everyone loves walking into the kitchen and finding something delicious or refreshing to eat. The most wonderful things are created in kitchens! Everyone walks in and out of the kitchen all day… (in my house at least) The kitchen is the most beautiful room in a house, why? Because so much goes on in there!

A woman’s prayers are so important and precious to God and her family. The other day I kept reminding myself to pray for two specific things that were really weighing on my heart.

Their four year old son, Horatio, Jr., died of scarlet fever. The Spaffords were devastated. In October of 1871 when the Great Chicago Fire broke..
Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King.
Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.
Words: Frances R. Havergal.
I love this second stanza…. Take my voice, and let me sing. Having these words stuck in your head during the day lets you put..
When your hair is frazzled and the house is a mess; when dinner isn’t cooked and the kids are hyper and creative (in a bad way) how do you see the beauty of homemaking? How do you see beauty in your calling? Ladies, you NEED TO LOOK FOR IT! Look for the little things in your home that make you happy. Look for smiles, look for color, look for GOD. Seeing the light of joy and innocence shine in..
To the U.S Senate in 1950 a famous preacher named Peter Marshall stood up and said:
“I believe women come nearer fulfilling their God given function in the home then anywhere else. It is a much nobler thing to be a good house wife then to be Miss America… The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to..
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
