Priscilla Shirer's Bible Study Gideon with Beth Moore (2)

So ladies, are you doing the the Bible study with Beth Moore?  If you don't know what I'm talking about you can refer back to my post that introduced what Beth Moore is doing.

Okay, so this is the first and second lesson for the Gideon Bible study.  I put Beth's video below.

She asked that we answer a few questions.  I put two of them on the blog here, but to read the remainder of them, you will have to go to her blog here:

1.  Based on the question in the middle of p. 37 of our homework, she says, to what specific bravery do you feel God is calling you to in this season of your life?

2.  After reading p. 46, regarding five ordinary tasks that you perform on a daily basis, share a memory of an ordinary circumstance in which God met you in an extraordinary way.

Priscilla ends week one saying:

"End this week by prayerfully considering what it will mean to live out Joshua 24:15.  Ask the Lord to give you a holy courage to turn this promise into personal reality.  When re…

Moms want to make some extra cash?

Yes, you read right.  Would you like to make some extra cash?

Before I tell you how, let me share my story with you.  I have been a stay-at-home mom for 19 years.  And 12 of those 19 years, I've home schooled my seven children.

For a while things ran smoothly in our home with the money that my husband brought in from his business alone.  As of this writing things are not as smooth as they use to be, and even if they were, I think the time of my season of not working for money is over.

Many of you who follow this blog know that I've learned Web-design, graphic design, and blogging.  These are things that I love and skills that I am glad I'm gaining.  Right now I am even working on a traditional business.  But these things take time.

In the mean time I've been crying out to God, "Lord what can I do to bring in some extra money?"

Now let me tell you how I came to learn about this company that I'm sharing with you.

About a month ago, I got into my husband…

Priscilla Shirer's Bible study Gideon with Beth Moore

Today, I am going to share the first video with you all for the Summer Gideon Bible study with Beth Moore.

Remember I am doing it with her on her blog, but we are using Priscilla Shirer's book Gideon.

It really is a good study.

I missed last week with you guys.  We had a lot of graduations to attend.  Some of the festivities took place outside and let me tell you it is hot here in Texas! Too hot, if you ask me, for any "outside" festivities.  Talk about having a bad attitude!  I had one last week.  I was so uncomfortable, sweating , and all.  It wasn't a pretty site.

You know sometimes you don't realize just how ugly your attitude can get until you are put in uncomfortable situations.  So anyway, that's why I didn't get a chance to post last week at all because I was running around so much.

I'm going to just use the Bible study as the feature for this Friday.

Beth's intro video is really good.  Very appropriate.

Remember this while going through…

Submitting to your husband - lessons I learned from Mary the wife of Joseph

I can remember many years ago while doing my quiet time, the Lord showed me how submission by a wife to her husband can be very instrumental to the vitality and well-being of a family. It can literally save a life.

He showed me through a most unusual source: Mary.  Up until that reading I had become use to thinking of Mary as "only being the mother of Jesus."  I never thought of her in any other light.  Well, I take that back.  I thought of her as being "the virgin," too.

I knew she had an obedient heart  toward God by her responds to the angel Gabriel when he told her in Luke what was about to take place in her life.

It's kind of hard for me to explain, but I'm going to try so stick with me.  I knew that Mary was submissive to Joseph, Scripture is clearly shows that.  However, I never really focused on her submission because I always thought, "Who wouldn't be submissive in her shoes?"  I guess I kind of downplayed it in a sense.

The other thi…

6 Free Spiritual Growth ebooks

A lot of what I blog about here are things that I am going through in my life.

I am on a hunt for great resources right now.  Resources that cost very little to no money at all.  These resources include anything from food to books.  Today I found a few books that I've had sent to my kindle that are free and they are books from well-known Bible teachers.  As usual the links are below.

Hope you enjoy them!

1. Can I have joy in my life - Joy is a popular topic in Western culture today. Books explain how to find joy in a wide variety of activities. We speak of “joyous” occasions such as weddings and births. We sing about “Joy to the World” at Christmas. “Joy” remains a popular name for girls. But given the extent to which joy seems to be on our minds, few people seem to have it or even know what it is.

In this Crucial Questions booklet, Dr. R.C. Sproul cuts through the confusion surrounding this popular but misunderstood attribute, showing the one sure path to deep, lasting joy—a rela…
