A Former Lesbian Professor Tells What Happened When She Met Jesus

Do you know what the world needs? To come face to face with the God who created them, see His agony over their sin, His death as a man on the cross to cover it, and the freedom from condemnation given to every new creature in Christ. That is Christianity. And that is why I share amazing ...

Are You Tired & Uninspired? (I Have a Plan)

Are You Tired & Uninspired (I Have a Plan)

It's hard for me to admit, since I am a writer to women about all things home, even speaking nationally on occasion, that sometimes I struggle with my job at home. I mean, all out "I-feel-like-giving-up" struggle. (My husband has wisely informed me it's a little late in the game for that.) But something pretty profound ...

Is God Serious About Helping Orphans & Widows? (And How You Can)

Is God Serious About Helping Orphans & Widows? (And How You Can)

"Pure religion...to care for the orphans and widows in their affliction." Our family has really felt convicted for a while now, to reach out of our comfortable American lives and be more deliberate about living out the Gospel through helping those in need.

How to LIVE (and Leave) a LEGACY in Your Home

How to Live (and Leave) a Legacy in Your Home

Three years ago, two of my best friends and I planned an overnight get-a-way where we just brainstormed about life with each other. One of our epiphanies was this: We want to leave a real, meaningful legacy behind, and we want to help other women do that too. From that deep-seated passion, Living a Legacy conference was born, and a ...

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.
