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 chip away your resolve 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.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”

Love to Mamas of Prodigals

The very mention of the word, prodigal, brings to mind a flood of memories. I’ve written about, spoken at retreats and women’s studies, and have shared my own experiences as a mamas of prodigals.

I had a section on the old site – a page dedicated to prodigals and waywards. So often, through the years, I’ve had women share their stories, share advice, share their struggles and disappointments and feelings of utter failure and hopelessness. Usually all I can say is that I understand. They probably think I don’t. But

slow progress is better than no progress.

So, thank you for stopping by today. I cannot get to the transferring of an avalanche of material/messages/links/corrections from the the old ACH site… so, thank you for bearing with me. I have made additions to the Mama’s Journal @ thewelcomehome.net site. May the Lord bless you and your home… and remember: slow progress is better than no progress. So whatever you’re facing, whatever you do today, choose to progress… 🙂 Little by little… changes can be extremely valuable.

Remember Therefore…

These are perilous times in our nation — in our world. Seriously, these are unprecedented days! As we observe the times, the great falling away, the great delusion under which our society continues: the lawlessness, the seeming hopelessness, degradation, evil, anger, immorality; let’s not become weary in well doing — let’s not be led astray, held captive or defeated by the words and actions of the deceivers or the great deceiver himself.

I say all this because potential effects of the warp speed at which society

2016 Another New Year

Could This Be *The* Year For You?

“If ye love Me, keep My commandments.” —John 14.15

O, sisters in the LORD—could this be *the* year for you?

This is when the real change will occur… when we finally seek to know and to live the truths of God’s Word…when we lay our lives at His feet, when we give Him everything we’ve held on to: hands down… when we accept and apply the teaching of the Lord Jesus—demonstrating our love for Him

Daily Devotionals

Daily Devotionals: potentially instructive, potentially destructive.

Isn’t it interesting what the Lord uses in our lives to speak to us? He speaks through His Word, He ministers to us through teaching, poetry, testimonies, music, His creation; He works in us through joys and sorrows, hardships, grief, loss, trials, and countless other ways. He blesses us with all of these things — though we often miss seeing His signature it at the time. He blesses us with all these things — if we’ll receive them with that recognition.

Do you

Nothing new never means nothing’s new

If you’ve been a reader or subscriber to this site for any length of time, you’ll very quickly see that nothing new never means nothing’s new. But, I wanted to pop in and say, everything’s okay — nothing’s new and everything’s new and I hope to begin writing again soon. I love to write this blog. I love to share what God’s doing, showing me, working in me and in us all. I love to connect with sisters around the world and love to affirm the goodness and glory of

Mother’s Happy Day 2017

a child, unclear on the concept, loaded the dishwasher so carefully for me.So many “Mother’s Day” entries have filled my journals — tomorrow will be another, Mother’s Happy Day.

As I read this morning’s entry of Streams in the Desert I marveled at how many of the examples were part of the fabric of my experience as a mother and how many times the Lord gave me not what I wished, but what I needed. He gave me not what I asked for, but all that I hoped for.
