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.
Kathryn's letters & photographs from her work in Africa
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.

Motherhood, A Call To Carry On

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 fill them all: Carry on. When you’re weary and successes are few and failures are many: Carry on. When you

Meet Him In The Morning

Dearest Sister~

It truly is a joy to me to share with other sisters in the LORD the good things He has done and is doing in our midst. Though we cannot always see or understand the workings of the LORD, He is, indeed, at work and all God’s ways are good. We can count on Him for that.

Consider being at the threshold of a brand new year, a clean slate, and unblemished path lies ahead. By the time a week or

Hindrances

Dear Sisters, A truth I’ve come to highly value in my life is this: Life’s Greatest Hindrances are its Greatest Teachers!

More and more I find that what I used to consider my greatest hindrances were, in fact, actually my greatest teachers. I used to believe that all my troubles were attributable to lack of finances and consequently, thought all of them could be solved by a surplus. I considered all the disadvantages and often almost totally overlooked the great trust and creativity I was developing

He Is For You

He is for you… Signed, sealed, delivered: He’s Yours!

Dear Sisters ~

I am thinking of you today as I do most every day. I ask the LORD to bless and care for the needs of the sisters… the women who subscribe to these letters, visitors to our website, blog, etc. For I recognize more and more that each visit or each visitor is a story… a life with innumerable experiences, memories, needs and hopes. And so, it is with that in mind

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
