Articles & links regarding the importance of modest dress.

A resource page of sites and cottage industries offering modest clothing for Christian women.

You are loved and lovely and being a homemaker and keeper at home is precious work. Never be persuaded otherwise or allow the enemy to come in and flood your thoughts out of your home and wash away your commitment to improve and be strengthened in your role as the wife: helper to your husband, the keeper of the home, the mother of children and the light and joy of the family. You're worth it. Be an excellent homemaker. Your family is worth it! Do good things daily!

This is an old page from the original ACH site. I'm happy to share old favourites and helpful ideas with you.

Timothy's missionary work in Ghana, West Africa

From a young age, Timothy knew the LORD had called him to be a missionary. The Lord has been only faithful and Timothy's been faithful to his calling. I would like to recount for you a miracle the Lord performed and I would like to share with you the joy we have in walking with our faithful Lord.

many links to pages of Good Things on the old site.

The remake ACH…

The antiquated AChristianHome site is under ongoing reconstruction.
I’ll be adding new Letters to My Sisters as well as linking to pages from the old
ACH website.  I’m setting up the new site using .COM

(you’ll be seeing that the old website page links will retain
the old achristianhome.org address and the old format
and this new website is achristianhome.COM which
will be utilizing the wordpress blog style format)

Thanks for visiting and thanks for your patience and understanding
should you decide to continue to visit our site. :-)
bye

See you soon!

A Faithful Christian Wife

O, to be A Faithful Christian Wife! I was reading some different articles and a thought struck me: how will I be remembered? And then I was mulling over some more aspects of this— I don’t know what first sparked line of thinking, but it’s led me to reflect on the life of a precious sister in the LORD who has dedicated her life to

Spurgeon on Mothers

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was England’s best-known preacher for most of the latter half of the nineteenth century – Spurgeon was twenty years old when he became the pastor of London’s New Park Street Church. Imagine that, at twenty years old! The motto of Spurgeon’s ministry and Metropolitan Tabernacle church in London England was, “We Preach Christ and Him Crucified. Here’s a small taste of what he concluded

Motherhood: A Call to Carry On

Carry on, Dear Sisters. When you’re drop dead tired and there’re still several hours and as many chores left to do at the end of the day: Carry on. When you have so much to do you don’t know how you’ll do it all: Carry on. When you have so many needs to fill and seemingly not enough resources to

Fifty Five Million Reasons

And I wonder how many more.

Fifty five million reasons to stand against planned barrenhood.

At least fifty five million babies never had the opportunity to take a drink of milk… never had the opportunity to be cradled and rocked to sleep… never had the opportunity feel the sun on their face… never had the opportunity to smell a rose… never had the opportunity to blow bubbles, dandelions or birthday candles… never had the opportunity to open a present, open a door, open a book, open a window… never had the opportunity to breathe fresh air, to snuggle in a blanket, splash in a puddle, lick an ice cream cone, see a sunrise, hear a melody, or whisper I love you.

To be sure, these are not entries on a list of fifty five million reasons to stand against abortion and Planned Parenthood et al. The fifty five million reasons to stand against heinous atrocity of abortion and the horrifying practices of Planned Parenthood are these: Babies. Fifty five million babies.

It is gruesome and unconscionable that Planned Parenthood sells baby parts. It is sickening that women are being lied to and conditioned to […]

Flee Comparisonitis

Maybe you saw my thoughts yesterday where I wrote about Comparisonitis or making comparisons and how easy it is to become ensnared by this. Comparing ourselves to others, comparing our situations to other’s situations (or our perception of their situations), our accomplishments (or lack thereof) to other’s accomplishments (as we perceive them to be). Then we spend precious moments or days or years mulling over what we have or haven’t done (right), what we do or don’t have, what we have to deal with — compared to others.

When these thoughts come up, I know I need to flee these thoughts. Flee! And quickly.

I’ve come to realize that when I compare myself with others or my whatever’s with other women’s whatevers, I inadvertently make them the standard to which I seek to attain. I make them the guide and standard of my life instead of making the Lord, His Word, His way, and His truth for me the guide and standard of my life.

We know that medically or pathologically, “itis” is inflammation, which, in an organ of our body, is a bad thing and we seek quick attention to reverse or […]

Comparisonitis

It sure took me by surprise… hasn’t happened in a long time… and, when it does, it rarely lingers. Except today. Today it lingered awhile and I completely caught off guard. I was busily cleaning an area and reorganizing a bunch of books… I even had a ridiculous Christmas song stuck in my head. And then, all of a sudden I was overwhelmed thinking of some of my abysmal failings as a mother – a homeschooling mother, specifically. And I was trying to think of one good thing I’ve done — one really exceptional achievement in which I had even a small part.

I can’t say I’ve done my best as a homeschool mama. I can’t say I’ve dedicated my life to homeschooling. And, I can’t say there’ve been many stellar achievements — as the world might measure. And I wouldn’t have even taken the time to bore you with this seemingly selfdeprecating post had I not “snapped out of it” and considered God’s great work and His continuing processes! And then to further be encouraged as I came in to browse my links and saw a post Tim Challies had written. It sort of paralleled […]
