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.”

The Forgiveness Road

Many years ago, I had the privilege of speaking at a retreat in a beautifully tranquil setting. It was a wonderful opportunity for women to be refreshed and renewed away from their normal routines, schedules and life’s demands. And… as happens at most retreats, for some women, it was a time of deep reflection.

It is often the case that women will rest and reflect long enough to realize that a part of them has ceased to really live or they’ve ceased

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

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

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 her husband and family – most notably and obviously in the recent years of her husband’s complete physical disability. Then,

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 regarding mothers. How we must reflect on these powerful sentiments.

O dear mothers, you have a very sacred

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.

Of Roses & Wayward Children

A Welcome Home message from Mother’s Happy Day ~ 2004

The topic I feel led to share tonight transcends cultures, language and socio-economic boundaries or barriers. When a child wanders out of the way, it doesn’t matter what you’ve got, what you know or what you don’t. It doesn’t matter what you’ve planned or what you hoped would happen. It doesn’t matter where you live or where you’ve been, when a child wanders out of the way, it is a heaviness only a mother or dad of a wayward child

Tending Your Marriage Garden

If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you’ll remember I often make references to my gardens. Not so much to share gardening techniques or skills, but what’s growing in the gardens. I think more than in any other place, I find instruction in the garden. It seems the Lord meets me out there in ways I can never anticipate — but one thing I can or do anticipate is that He will be out there with me and He’ll have something to show me.

So I was
