The Power of Digging Deeper into God’s Word | ‘That the World May Know’ with Ray Vander Laan

What I didn’t learn in Sunday School I grew up in church, but I learned very little about the Bible during those early years. My Sunday school teacher was awesome. I enjoyed the lessons and learned Scripture verses. And while I could tell you that David toppled Goliath, and Sarah laughed when she was told she was going to have a child, I didn’t understand how the Bible was put together as one cohesive story. I discovered my lack of {Read More}

Hope For Bible Study Newbies (Who Want to Train their Kids Well)

Hope For Bible Study Newbies (Who Want to Train their Kids Well) I’m not sure I should admit this, but as much as I loved Women Living Well, I felt a twinge of jealousy as I read chapter two.

I almost couldn’t relate to the picture of a young Courtney, {Read More}

The Desire to Be Seen

The Desire to Be Seen Years ago I attended a national mothering conference. A lot of women had gathered together to have fun, bond with friends, and learn how to be better mothers. Unfortunately I didn’t attend with other women. The truth was I’ve never felt so alone in my life. I had a hotel room to myself. I sat alone during the speakers’ presentations, among 5,000 women. I remember looking around and thinking, “Nobody knows me. Nobody understands.” They {Read More}

Living a Grace-Filled Life

Every Sunday we have a small group that meets at our house.

The Lazy Woman’s Guide to Topical Bible Study

I love studying the Bible. I’m perfectly happy to have a stack of study books by my side. I could spend hours a day reading God’s Word and allowing it to carry me through it’s passages. Of course I’m a mom of six, including three little ones who usually never “sleep in” after 6:00 a.m. I don’t have time to spend hours a day in God’s Word. Instead, I’ve discovered a few tricks of “going deep” into a topical Bible {Read More}
