The Inspiration Cycle

We moms want to inspire our kids. Just having children makes us strive to be the best versions of ourselves, examples we hope they’ll want to emulate. But in some ways, my kids have already surpassed that goal, and now, they inspire me. My 14-year-old son started a YouTube channel this summer, where he posts… Continue reading The Inspiration Cycle


Memorize & Meditate: Romans 14:19

As so often happens in Scripture, a short verse can contain powerful truths. This verse leaped off the page when reading my daughter's post about peacemakers last week. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. - Romans 14:19 Do you have a Scripture memory… Continue reading Memorize & Meditate: Romans 14:19

Old Soul Quotes: Giving

I've spent the week reading Randy Alcorn's book The Treasure Principle and learning Matthew 6:19-21, about saving up treasure in heaven. To continue with the theme which has so inspired me, I chose giving as the theme for today's post.

Follow Up to the Fourth: Firefighter Flags

In America, Independence Day sees red, white, and blue flags waving high and proud from flag poles, on front porches, and in the hands of children at parades and fireworks displays. But I had never seen one of these black and white flags until my husband, a lieutenant with our city fire protection services, asked… Continue reading Follow Up to the Fourth: Firefighter Flags

Memorize & Meditate: Proverbs 24:3-4

On our kitchen wall is a sign with these words, reminding me of what it takes to establish a Christian home, filled with the kind of wealth that will last forever.
