Proverbs 31:30

Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Proverbs 31:1 Prayer Lord, I am so thankful that you are showing me that what’s in my heart is what matters most. In my life, I’ve spent so much time trying to be charming and beautiful, yet the times I feel truly loved is when I’m still in your presence with the promises from your Word open before me. Today, {Read More}

The 6-Word Prayer that Transformed My Parenthood | Eryn Lynum

I’m not sure when I first whispered this plea to the Lord, but it must have been one of those times we parents face often, a moment dripping with fear and anxious thoughts. Six small words slipped off my lips. Little did I know how they’d be a constant companion to me in the following days and, I am sure, the coming years of raising my children. Fear is a too-familiar companion these days. It lurks around every corner, hunching {Read More}

She Says I’m Her Best Friend | Dawn Camp

It took 19 years of parenthood and seven other children before I gave birth to the one I call my mini-me. She arrived the year after my mother passed away, and we moved when she was six weeks old. If that wasn’t stressful enough, we owned two houses for seven months (we bought one before the other sold—never again!). During those long, hard months when I missed my mother fiercely and worried we would lose both homes, this tiny daughter {Read More}

Proverbs 24:3-4

Proverbs 24:3-4 By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures. Prayer Lord, I am so thankful for all the moments I set aside time to meet with you, to be filled by you, and to fill my mind with your Word—your wisdom. Anything good that has been established in my home comes from wisdom from your Word. Today, Lord, I choose to look at your {Read More}

Staying Calm When Dealing with Angry Kids

Why is my child so angry? My heart pounded as I asked the question. It thumped with fear. What if this doesn’t change? My mind raced with worry. What if I can’t control my child? Just as bad: What if—because of their anger—I can’t control myself? With each scream of my child’s lips and the pounding of fists on the tile floor, I felt myself losing control. My face flushed, my temperature rose, and my skin tingled. I’m angry, too. {Read More}

Job 9:33-34

Job 9:33-34 If only there were someone to mediate between us, someone to bring us together, someone to remove God’s rod from me, so that his terror would frighten me no more. Prayer Lord, for thousands of years before Christ came to earth God’s people longed for a mediator between them and God. What they longed for, I know. What they wished they could see, I have testimony of in your Word. Lord, help me not to forget the wonderful {Read More}

How to Shut Up the Accuser | Becky Harling

HOW TO SHUT UP THE ACCUSER Adapted from Who Do You Say That I AM? by Becky Harling (©2018). Published by Moody Publishers. Used by permission. I felt upset, confused, and angry. I was in California getting ready to speak at a women’s conference but had just received an extremely critical email.
