Jesus loves me, old people told me so.

  I have to share this post with you. Our daughter Bethany has such a heart for the elderly and her compassion tempered with humor shines is this piece. It’s long, but so worth reading.

But we do have some other studies happening! For the rest of the month of April, I’m experimenting with a short mini-study of Psalm 1 on Instagram.

He Died for My Sin

To help your children understand that Jesus died for their sins, try this simple activity: Nail two scraps of wood together to form a cross about two feet tall. Hang this cross on a wall or lay it flat on a counter or table. In a basket nearby, place pieces of paper, a pen or pencil, a bag of small nails, and a hammer. When the need for discipline arises during […]

Thirty (One) Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 31: Move Into His Shelter

I’m always a bit sad when we reach the last day of our study. It’s such a blessing to study with you all (but it will be nice to sleep at night again :-)).
