What If We Just Worshipped

homeschooling and comparison

Thanks for this! It seems like no matter how many times I hear that I shouldn't compare my ...more

when you want to quit

I've had one of those kind of weeks. The roller coaster kind where I think my highs will last longer than they actually do. Instead, I end up plummeting down the otherside of the hill as fast as I go up. Maybe I'm delusional. Some call it organic church.

when you're hard on yourself

She walked away when she was only 12 yrs old. Never thinking it brave. Survival meant leaving and never coming back. Her younger sister remembers nothing.  Not one thing of all those years.

And before we know it, our tongue is forked with Christ and sharp words and criticism. All the more reason to hide. ...more

Greek Roots Give "Obey those who rule over you" A Different Perspective

If a Woman is Liberated In Church, Will That Incite Rebellion in the Home

By all means, no!When Jesus Christ, Himself, is the head of His church, then there is liberty, yes. But that doesn’t mean we stay true or free to that liberty. Doctrines of men come and subvert our freedom because this freedom is an antithesis to man’s way, when in fact, freedom only establishes a much higher way of order....more
