Amazing Web Links for Your Weekend

  Homeschooling Held Hostage, Heidi St John "Most of us took our children out of public school in search of something more, only to be hijacked by the world’s system—right there on the couches in our living rooms. We’re putting our kids into hyper-academic “homeschooling” programs and we’re allowing the pressure of the “what ifs” to determine ...

Walking Through the Storm (What Really Matters)

Many of you walked with us on our journey through the horrific storm of April 27 2011. Keri at A Happy Home Media asked me last week to share the story with her listeners.

Guide to Living Beautifully

guide to living beautifully

For years, I have loved perusing Mrs. Dunwoody's Excellent Instructions for Homekeeping. It's charming, instructive, at times humorous, and delightfully nostalgic, reminding us of a time when life was less hurried and women made real, beautiful homes.

When God’s Will is Wildly Different Than Ours

Of all things in the Christian life, I marvel most when the irony of God's will completely contradicts human logic and ultimately reveals a magnificent display of His glory, a finished, breath-taking tapestry we've only been able to see from the messy underside. I think we don't get to see the wonder of God's power very ...

Why We Must Be Theology-Loving Christians

"I don't really get into 'theology' or 'doctrine.' I mean, I love Jesus. That's really all that matters." This is a frightening reality among most Christians, and particularly Christian women. Frightening because our theology defines how we live. It informs all our decisions and thus, our whole direction in life. Theology matters. Theology is the study of ...

Our Health Insurance Alternative (Saving Money on Health Insurance)

Dropping our Blue Cross Insurance was the best thing we ever did--financially and ethically. Not only were our premiums becoming increasingly expensive, but we were still paying large sums out-of-pocket, all while much of our money went to greasing the great big Insurance Machine. We knew about Christian medical sharing programs, but were a little concerned ...
