Thirty Days in John 15, Day 35: What’s Next?
Abiding in Christ includes His Word abiding in us. If we don’t know the Word, we won’t really know Jesus — who He is, what He has done and what He continues to do, what He has promised — and we won’t know how to respond to all that God sovereignly brings into our lives. That’s why i’m driven to keep writing Busy Mamas Bible Studies, no matter how crazy it […]Read More →

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 11: Psalms Are for Singing
While we’re busy marking words, making lists, and looking for parallelism and imagery, we don’t want to forget that Psalm 91 was written to be sung, not just read and studied.

Here are a few musical versions of Psalm 91 to […]Read More →

Why Are We Tempted to Give Up?
We know we need to read the Bible. Many of us may have started out the new year with renewed zeal to read it everyday — maybe even to read the entire Bible by the end of the year. But it’s easy to become discouraged. We read and we don’t know how to apply what we’ve read to our lives. Or we read, and amidst interruptions and distractions, we may not even […]Read More →
As we’ve studied 1 Samuel 25, many of you may have learned some new Bible study skills. Now you have a chance to put those to work on your own! Below are some suggestions for continued study. Some of these ideas continue to look at themes and topics from 1 Samuel 25. Others relate to the Christmas season, and some move on to new chapters to study. We’ll never run […]Read More →
Finding Women to Follow, Plus a New Busy Mamas Bible Study!
I remember when our children were little. I longed for an older woman to come alongside to encourage and counsel me. But we were a young church full of young families. (Now I, and a whole bunch more of us, are the older women.) In the absence of women that I could actually sit down and chat with over a cup of tea, I made my tea and sat down with […]Read More →

Children in the Worship Service
When our children were young, we made the decision to keep them in the worship service with us on Sundays. We wanted them to learn how to worship alongside us. We wanted them to hear the singing and learn to sing with us. We wanted them to be in the presence of the saints while we prayed, while we heard the Word preached, while we read the Word responsively, while […]Read More →
