30 Day Workout Challenge (Pinterest)

I know better…no one wants to start working out during the holidays!

But I couldn’t help sharing this Workout Challenge I found on the Internet! I started it 2 days ago and it is so easy and fast, any mom (or dad) has time for it. I plan to do it and see if I have any results. It takes about 5 minutes a day.

Let me know if you try it and how you do! I am the world’s worst about regular exercise routines but I may be able to stick to this one.

Let’s do it together, or if you want to wait until the New Year, save it to your computer or phone and try it then!

I’m in!!!

Workout Challenge or bust!

Family Prayer Guide (from OperationIntercession.org)

father-prayer-guide-c

Now more than ever, families need prayer. I am sending a challenge to all families to pray together at some time each day. Rally the troops, put down your phones and devices and pray. Make a plan to have family time (even 10 minutes) and prepare your family for the days ahead. This will be a task at first, but within about 20 days, it will become a habit and bless you beyond anything you have experienced. Take a few items on the list and work your way to the end, you will be blessed and your family will be building a great foundation in the Lord.

30 Day Prayer and Fasting Schedule

I want to thank Elizabeth Baptist Church (website) https://www.elizabethbaptist.org/ in Atlanta, ELIZABETH BAPTIST CHURCH, PASTOR CRAIG L. OLIVER, SR. for this 30 Day Prayer and Fasting Schedule. My daughter-in-law followed it in her first days of being a new Christian and it helped her gain insights and discipline for the days ahead. This is not a weight loss plan, however, you may lose a little weight as you go through the process. Enjoy learning and growing in your faith! Let me know how it goes!

Ten Ways to Change Your Man

1.       Pray for him daily.

2.       Love him unconditionally.

3.       Appreciate him.

4.       Thank him verbally.

5.       Respect him.

6.       Speak the truth in love.

7.       Never go to bed angry.

8.       No disrespect allowed, verbal, cussing, hitting.

9.       Let him help you in his way.

10.   Be the woman God wants you to be.

1.       Pray for him daily. The Bible says, “The effectual, fervent prayers of a righteous man (woman, implied) availeth much.” Take it to the Lord in prayer, He will hear and answer. You will see subtle changes in your man, this will not happen quickly. My husband was not close to the Lord when we married, but he did become the father and husband I knew he could be and he’s now a missionary. We have been married many years. Have faith, he will become the man you need him to be.

A Proud Mom’s Tribute

By Sarah P.

Warning- long & sappy!! People say that the words “time flies” are cliché or just silly little words that old people mutter as they speak of times gone by, but I have realized with each passing day that there are no 2 words that ring more true than these words and  I know there is wisdom within..my girl graduates from high school this Sunday…My mind battles with the 2 lines of thought whether I should either mourn for the baby girl she was or celebrate this young lady that I see standing there before me…she is lovely, she is smart and kind. I can still see the little brown- haired girl sitting beside her bed with a pile of books there ready to read with her moma…my little helper, my little rock that kept her moma together time after time…I do look forward to what her future holds I am just sad that I let time just slip by so fast-i should have let things go, stopped worrying and just enjoyed the time we had together, not rushed it away-when you are in the thick of life, you don’t realize that the time of stress that you are in only lasts but a moment, but a speck in time…a professor once told our class as we were prepping Continue reading

What happened when Jesus said, “It is Finished’?

What happened when Jesus said, “It is Finished’?

(Scripture references and inspiration from Palm Sunday Service, Luke 4:18 Church, Dr. Fred Wolfe’s message*)

It’s Easter time and all that means…family, friends, baskets, bunnies, eggs AND, most importantly, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. I hope everyone who reads this will gain some insight as to exactly what Jesus did for us in His death on the cross.

Whether you chose to believe it or not, Jesus died in your (my) place. Before we celebrate the Resurrection (Sunday,) it is good to reflect on the crucifixion (Friday.)  By good, I mean, what really took place on that old rugged cross.

Back in Genesis, in the Bible, (Gen. 3: 8-10) we can see that the perfect plan of God was to have daily fellowship, communion, with His creation, Man. Adam disobeyed God and communion was broken, causing separation from that daily fellowship. Man became accountable for his sin and in the many years that followed, between Adam and Jesus, no one experienced that “full” fellowship with God. Even though, for example, Moses met with God on the mountaintop and David communed with God, God’s Spirit was withheld and only through the tenents of The Tabernacle and the Holy of Holies, could God’s Spirit dwell.

The Face of Autism

She looks perfect doesn’t she? By Trish S.

This is the face of a girl who desperately wants to make friends, but doesn’t know how approach people or start conversations.

This is the face of someone who doesn’t know how to respond correctly in a lot social situations

This is the face who knows what she feels, but just can’t come up with the words to express it.

This is the face of Autism. Claire is affected by Asperger’s. She is considered to be “high functioning” and has always blended in at school academically. There has never been a need for special Ed classes. She is actually extremely intelligent and quite hilarious at times. Today when I got home from work, she told me that no one talked to her at school today. She felt ignored by some girls when she tried to speak to them. My little girl is so hurt and my heart aches for her.Continue reading
