Lately, I've been working on expanding the collection of Bible translations in our home. My favorite addition has been a 1560 Geneva Bible until we purchased the Septuagint last week. The Septuagint is the Scriptures that were translated into Greek a couple of centuries before Jesus walked on earth. It is my understanding that when… Continue reading She Employs All Her Living for Her Husband’s Good
Being a wife and mother is the most blessed "job" in the world in my opinion. There is nowhere that I would rather be than with my family! Right now we are enjoying the season of winter.

And yes, this is obviously my second marriage. (I was a widow for a short time.) You would think I'd be a pro… Continue reading Stop Walking in the Curse!
On this blog, I rarely write about being a wife. Do you want to know why? Sometimes I believe I really stink at it. While I love my husband dearly, I've been known to roll my eyes a time or two. To speak out of turn. He handles all of our grocery shopping and does… Continue reading Becoming a Submissive Wife
