“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.”

site up and running again…

Hello girlfriends… thanks for stopping in! After the strange hit this site’s taken, and the destruction of some files, and my inability to even “get in” I’ve spent (with the gracious help from my husband!) the better part of this week trying to reconstruct this site along with reconnecting broken links to the original AChristianHome.org site.

Many links are still not working, and pages are still missing but in time I hope to restore them, too. As you’ll see, many of the antiquated pages linked to the original site have

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.

Regard Not Your Stuff

Regard Not Your Stuff

And so, I encourage you to rest in the Lord… fret not over what God’s doing in your life or where He’ll call you to go or what He’ll call you to do. Regard not your stuff. No matter how things seem to you to be today: God cares for you, the Holy Spirit is ever making intercession for you. The LORD Jesus has taken care of everything that concerns you. God says He will be found by you when you call upon His name.

the suicide option

Through our lives we have experiences that are etched on our hearts and minds — experiences that shape our thinking, shape our reactions, shape our responses, shape our decisions — maybe even shape our initial theology or lack thereof. If these etchings were recorded on 3×5 cards, in time we’d have quite a card file full, wouldn’t we? Events and experiences, lessons and influences all recorded on cards make up our individual card catalogs. It’s interesting to me, every now and then, to come across a card I

The Power of Music

The Power of Music

Music. It tells a story, makes us smile, makes us cry, warms our hearts, consoles our hurts, tells our stories. That’s the power of music.

This morning one of my daughters sent a text, a picture of her home’s front flowerbed: hyacinths and dozens of tulips just beginning to bloom. How sweet of the Lord to give her that gift — this is the first Springtime in her new home and so the various plantings done by the previous owner are just coming into view. This is just an example
