“So Many Voices” by Nina Newton

Are you listening to so many voices all around you that you can’t hear God’s voice? “Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given …

“Waiting for Grace” by Nina Newton

Some days I amaze myself. And then other days, not so much. I’m guessing we all have days like that. But there is just something about “grace” that seems to make me nervous. It’s almost as if I just can’t believe it’s true. Oh, I know in my head what God’s Word tells me about …

“Facing Down the Bumblebee” by Nells Wasilewski

Thought for the day:  Job 12:7-10 (NKJV) “But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; and the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; and the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who among all these does not know …

“Encouragement for When Your Hope has been Fiercely Shaken” by Ifeoma Samuel

After a long week of torturous waiting for test results to swing in my favour, it didn’t! I was tired of fighting. I was done filling the holes with hope. This war is waged against my peace and this time I was overwhelmed. Those tormenting “maybes” and “if-onlys” competed for my heart space. -Maybe I …

“Wisdom for Moms: Preparing Your Introverted Child” by Laura L. Zimmerman

By nature, I’m an extrovert. Even as small child, I never had a problem walking into a classroom and making friends. Summer camp? Piece of cake. I promptly chose my bed for the week and said goodbye to my parents before they could even get a look around.

“Salad in the Mailbox” by Norma C. Mezoe

                      At the age of 45, I was forced to find employment after my husband left me. I had never worked outside of my home, but God opened doors only He could have opened. Within three weeks, I was employed at a nonprofit organization. I …

“Put it on Mute” by Toni Samuels

When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. – Revelation 8:1 We live in a noisy age. Think about the variety of sounds blaring from the devices in our vehicles, homes and offices. Most of us are so uncomfortable with quiet that the moment we jump …

“Some Lost Things We Need to Recover” by Sharon L. Patterson

Is it just me, or have you noticed we have lost some very significant things we desperately need to recover in our lives?

“Meatloaf Mishap” by Christie Browning

I believe it’s important to recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, I am completely comfortable in declaring that I am weak when it comes to cooking. No, this isn’t the type of bad cooking that produces dry chicken or overly bland potatoes. My bad cooking brings about burnt, charred, inedible dishes that make the stomach …

“ENVY” by Cyndie Randall

I am so envious.  I’m envious of people with really good teeth. Especially when they’ve never seen an orthodontist and they drink liters of black coffee between donut-chewing and not flossing. They do all this while smiling, by the way. I’m envious of women who OWN that two-piece swimsuit even after their bodies have sagged and settled. …

“Putting on Godliness” by Cassidy Burdge – ‘The Christian Prepster’

“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” -Colossians 3:12 NLT Wouldn’t that be great? Living a life clothed in compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. I have yet to master this skill, but I try really hard to live …

“Solitude” by Kathy McCauley

The person called to solitude is a rare soul. Identifying this hunger or need in one’s soul is difficult. The hunger for solitude is sometimes disguised as restlessness — taking us the wrong direction. The one who is called to solitude is purely content with their thoughts, prayers, and presence with God. There is no …

“Am I Beautiful?” by Mary Dolan Flaherty

I recently saw an article on my town’s website advertising a new program for tween and teen girls. It’s designed to promote self-confidence in a young woman through public speaking and addressing self-esteem Issues such as peer pressure, body image, and carrying oneself with grace and dignity. Mentors help each young woman reach her potential …

“Tales of a Borderline Hoarder” by Beth Brubaker, Assistant Editor

I like stuff. I admit it. I like collecting it, looking at it and sometimes even using it- but when the stuff gets in the way of life, we need to reevaluate our habits. It started when I began indulging myself in all of my interests, flitting from one-to-the-other like a hummingbird amongst flowers, never …

“The View from My Prison Cell” by Nina Newton, Sr. Editor

I look out the window of my prison cell and the world seems to go on as if nothing has happened.  The lace curtains flutter in the warm summer breeze that drifts through the window of my prison cell. But the invisible bars on that window imprison me in this dark place of sadness, pain, …

“The Power of Loving Well” by Carol Doyel

God has been moving powerfully in me lately, stirring my heart, tenderly revealing deep things to me – sadly some of the things that He has revealed in me are not so good. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about condemnation – but in His loving-kindness, he has drawn me to repentance for …

“Filled with Glory” by Lynn Mosher

No room for Moses. God gave Moses an enormous job: to build the tabernacle in the wilderness. Following very explicit directions for structuring the tabernacle, Moses fulfilled all God’s commands. When Moses finished it, “Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle…And Moses was not …

“Let Go and Let God” by Laura L. Zimmerman

This past week we said goodbye to my thirteen-year-old daughter as she left on a class trip for Boston. It was not only the furthest she’d ever been away from us – three hundred and seventy two miles, to be exact – but also for the longest period of time – four days. When we …

“A Long and Winding Road” by Nina Newton

As the late summer sun casts shadows that slant across the carpet of fallen leaves on the ground behind our house, I am confronted with the reality that autumn is almost upon us. In the mornings as we drive past the fields of corn and soybeans, and meander up and down the gentle rolling hills …
