This morning I woke up with a heavy heart. I want to stick my head in the sand. I want to look the other way. But I can't. I am concerned for God's people, and I'm also concerned for our nation. This current event has uncovered Continue Reading

4 Ways To Beat Discontentment

4 Ways To Beat Discontentment |

Image from By contributing writer, Jane For much of this year, I've struggled with a general feeling of discontentment. I've spent most of my time hoping and praying for new things to happen: a new baby, a new house, new friends, a new church, restored health. I've shared all the desires of my heart with God and waited in expectation. But as weeks, then months, went by without Continue Reading

An Intentional Approach to Thanksgiving – Pilgrims for a Day

Teach your kids what the Pilgrims went through in search of new land. Pretend to be Pilgrims on the Mayflower eating hard tack. Then imagine what the first Thanksgiving feast was like with a traditional Pilgrim Dinner. Ideas and recipes for an intentional Thanksgiving with your family.

Not My Will but Your Will Be Done

When you come to the end of the day, can you say, "Not my will, but Your will be done"?

"If you are not living in touch with God, it is easy to blame Him or pass judgment on Him. You must go through the trial before you have any right to pronounce a verdict, because by going through the trial you learn to know God better. God is working in us to reach His highest goals until His purpose and our purpose become one." ~Oswald Chambers At the end of the day, when I close the computer Continue Reading

20 Crock Pot Recipes You’ll Really Want to Eat


By contributing writer, Amy I have a lot of things on my plate (figuratively speaking), so I've not been doing a very good job of putting things on my family's plates (literally speaking). I've gotten into a deep rut when it comes to menu planning. I've been uninspired and...well...lazy. All too often, I plan boring meals because they seem easy.  Then, I ditch the boring meals for even Continue Reading
