Pieces of Our Christ-Centered Hanukkah Celebration

This week has been busy. The Festival of Lights, or Hanukkah, began on Tuesday evening, and we have been celebrating the joy of Jesus being our light, and thinking about ways to rededicate our "temples," or lives/bodies to the Lord. I have many thoughts about Hanukkah, and how to celebrate in a Jesus-honoring way, but… Continue reading Pieces of Our Christ-Centered Hanukkah Celebration

Parents, Require Obedience of Your Children Article

Requiring obedience from our children can be so tough! I want to be the "nice guy". I want to show God's attributes of mercy and grace. But at the same time, I know that obedience must be taught. After all, salvation is a covenant of obedience. I was greatly encouraged this morning by John Piper… Continue reading Parents, Require Obedience of Your Children Article

Teaching Our Daughters About Biblical Womanhood

Teaching our daughters about Biblical Womanhood is so very important. Several years ago, my oldest daughters and I went through much of the Bright Lights material together (which I highly recommend).

The Beauty of Jesus Revealed in the Feasts Study Begins Soon

The way Jesus is foreshadowed in the Biblical feasts is fascinating! I was very excited to learn that a new book written by Daniel Krebs and Darlene Schacht (otherwise known as The Time Warp Wife) is hot off the presses about this topic.
