I'll be posting here about life in general and life in the ministry, but head on over here to check out my new blog featuring clean eating recipes.

Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control. - 1 Timothy 2:9a
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman without discretion. Proverbs 11:22
But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. “Woe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes! Matthew 18:6-7
And behold, the woman meets him, dressed as a prostitute, wily (or deceptive) of heart. - Proverbs 7:10

Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord."It seems like after finding out I was pregnant with our first child, I had a fear of failure hanging over me. Feelings of inadequacy and thoughts like, "What if we screw this kid up?" crept in many times over the years. Over time, God has given me a peace about it. Not that we'll do everything perfect, or that they'll be perfect or turn out just like I want them to, but that if I pursue godliness for myself and for my kids, God will be faithful to guide and direct our steps. He has, in fact, been faithful to do just that, and based upon past experience, I can only conclude that He will continue in His faithfulness. Afterall, who wants our kids to be godly adults more than God, Himself?
The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease.There have been many questions we've asked God to answer for us. "Which doctor is trustworthy? Which babysitter? Is it really okay to put them to sleep on their belly? Is it really okay to put them to sleep on their back? Do we spank? Do we make them do chores? What age is okay to spend the night with friends? Do we give them an allowance? Do we homeschool? How do we homeschool? How do we keep them safe?" Time after time, God has answered our questions and put our minds and hearts at ease when we've been afraid of taking the next step - afraid of messing up.
Knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3-4
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7
