Fully Present In Every Moment

Fully Present In Every Moment

I want to honour the ordinary, to be fully present in the moment… to savour the little pockets of time that so often go by unnoticed. I want to fully engage with whatever it is that my hand is doing at the time. I want to connect all parts of me – head, hands and heart.

What is your idol?

What is your idol? An idol is anything which displaces God in my heart. It may be something which is quite harmless in itself, yet if it absorbs me, if it be given the first place in my affections and thoughts, it becomes an ‘idol’. It may be my business, a loved one, or my service for...

Idolizing the family

Idolizing the family

Living in a time when the family is under attack, the real danger is idolizing the family. We hear “the family first” and may be tempted to say “amen.” But Jesus will have none of this. When family is first, God plays second fiddle.

Cross centric

Cross centric

As you read the four gospels notice that the narration slows down as the hour of Christ’s death approaches, slowing from months and weeks to hours and minutes, reminding us that this was the hour for which he came. We are to pause and ponder every detail. ~C.J. Mahaney

Mother's first duty

Mother's first duty

Those who think that a woman detained at home by her little family is doing nothing, think the reverse of what is true. Scarcely can the godly mother quit her home for a place of worship, but dream not that she is lost to the work of the church; far from it, she is doing the best possible service for her Lord. Spurgeon

Preach Christ- Spurgeon

Preach Christ- Spurgeon To be prepared for the coming conflict, we have only to preach the gospel, and to live the gospel; and also to take care that we teach the children the Word of the Lord. This last is specially to be attended to, for it is by the mouth of babes and sucklings that God...

Childhood & the Scriptures by Spurgeon

Childhood & the Scriptures by Spurgeon

Let us expect our children to know the Lord. Let us from the beginning mingle the name of Jesus with the A B C. Let them read their first lessons from the bible. It is a remarkable thing that there is no book from which children learn to read so quickly as from the New Testament: there is a charm about that book which draws forth the infant mind. But let us never be guilty, as parents, of forgetting the religious training of our children; for if we do we may be guilty of the blood of their souls

Parenting – for whose sake?

Parenting – for whose sake? To go along with the quote I posted reviously, here is another one. Ouch! Yes, God I know… but isn’t it enough already? The challenges of raising a child are as much for the sanctification of the parents as they are for the benefit of the child. ~ Bryan...

God's Hidden Agenda

God's Hidden Agenda

God’s initial goal for Christian homeschooling families is not the raising of godly children. Instead, God’s wonderful, but subtly hidden agenda is that the homeschooling experience be so challenging for the parents that they feel the need and hunger for a closer walk with their heavenly Father.

What about my rights?

What about my rights? “To be broken means to have no rights before God and man. It does not mean merely surrendering my rights to Him but rather recognizing that I haven’t any, except to deserve hell. It means just being nothing and having nothing that I call my own, neither...
