God delights in us. Our lives don’t have to be full of rigidity, somberness and dull faces. We can live life! And have fun. We are allowed to enjoy life! In fact, He wants us to. He is pleasured when he watches us living and enjoying life within the environment He has provided for us.
How do we eat spiritual bread that will satisfy us? How are we to work for the food that endures for eternity? Jesus says that the way to work for the spiritual food, is to “believe on Him.”
As parents we all want to raise our children in the ways of the Lord, to teach them His ways, to teach them His story. But there is so much to do, to read, to share. Where do we start? We start and end with the good news. But what exactly is this good news?
There is a difference between hearing about, believing in Christ and receiving Him. Only those who receive Him become God’s children. Jesus is the only way to God. What does it mean to receive Jesus? “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God…” John 1:12

I’m a Christian, a homeschooler, a Christian homeschooler. I’m all this and much, much more. But I’m also none of those things. I do not like labels. I don’t like to ‘follow’ or adhere to any particular preaching or teaching. However, for those who really need labels to help define a site or person it might be said that I lean toward a Puritan, Reformed and Calvinistic mindset. You can see my thoughts here on even calling myself a Christian! Why do we need labels? Why do we feel the need to rally together under any other banner other than Christ?
God does not desire that we work our way to Him or that we try and make something of ourselves apart from Him. The story of the Tower of Babel is mercy in action.
The world Noah grew up in sounds very much like our own. How can we possibly miss seeing Jesus in the account of Noah? God’s promises concerning him shine brightly out of every single event.
Are you trying to hide from God? Are you embarrassed or ashamed of something in your past or even now in the present? Then this study of Genesis is for you!
A Bible study where we learn of the newness of the world and how The Eternal Word Illumined the darkness, ordered the chaos, filled the emptiness and breathed the breath of life into man and then… rested.
