Mystical Christianity (do NOT read this)

I love Jesus and a couple of months ago I was thinking how nice it would be to have a Mystical Christianity group who could meet once a week or so and explore our experiential relationships with Christ. But I didn't feel "qualified" enough to start such a group because I haven't read enough books about Mystical Christianity....more

Do You Expect Jesus to be Your Friend with Benefits?

I honestly don't really know how to open this post. I want to introduce this topic with a normal introduction, but I think I'll just skip the pleasantries and dive right in. I've been asking some hard questions about what I believe. Questions like: "WHY do I believe what I believe?" "Do I really know Jesus Christ or am I just going through the motions?" "Am I truly trusting Christ for my salvation or am I actually putting my faith in something else?" "Is Jesus enough for me?" ...more
I agree with you Sam. I just posted on my blog about really having a relationship with God who ...more

He is Risen!

He is Risen! Another Easter Sunday – whatever a person's faith, practices, higher power or NOT - many of us have practiced annual traditions to guide us to today, Easter Sunday.I heard a sermon last year. It spoke about Jesus Christ as an unopened gift under the Christmas tree. We wait for Christmas morning to open our gifts yet leave one gift unopened- The Gift of Christ....more

Stepmoms: Grow by celebrating your faith through love!

  “… The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.” Galations 5:6 (NIT) Our faith will not only shine through, but be strengthened when we express it through our love. I apply this to my step-mothering. Step 1: I pray and ask God to help me love my children as He loves them....more

Thoughts on John 14:6

 In my blogging travels today, I came across a  refreshing post that spoke of the exclusivity of Christ.   It instantly reminded me of  what Jesus said on that very subject - a verse with which many are familiar.  Have you ever considered what that verse is really saying?  ...more

Are You a Disciple?

Lu 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. Lu 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. Joh 6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Joh 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? ...more

The Easter Bunny Loves. . . Granola

It's been a long time since I've shared a recipe on here. In fact, I bet my fellow Whole Living Community members are wondering if I even know what whole foods are:) I thought perhaps now would be a good time to share. Maybe some of this tasty stuff could find it's way into an Easter basket or two. It tastes as good or better than most candy I've tried. And it's so super easy. ...more

HOW TO MAKE YOUR ENEMIES PISSED

So I am going to love my enemies. I will pray for them. I will continue to be happily going on my way to reach out for them.   There are only two reactions I expect from the loving gesture I will show them; either it will make them love me back or it will piss them off. Either way, I will continue to love them.How do I love them when they had caused me so much pain and anguish? This is how we do it. Go to this MY STATEMENT: LOVE OR BE PISSED....more
