Wisdom Meets Passion

  I have put off this review for far too long.  I received an electronic copy of Wisdom Meets Passion by Dan Miller and Jared Angaza some time ago in exchange for reviewing it, but I could not bring myself to write the review.  Why?  I really wanted to love it, but I did not! […]

You Smell Like Coffee!

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.”  Acts 4:13 On my birthday, I wanted a chance to be able to get out of the house and do some planning, but we had […]

Mothers in the Bible – Jochebed

“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s command.”  Hebrews 11:23 Jochebed was a slave.  She was one of the Hebrews whose forefathers had settled in Egypt centuries before when the Hebrew Joseph […]

I’m not adequate!

“Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “’Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’ “Then said I: ‘Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.’ “But the Lord said to […]

Book Review: The Grace Effect

  The Grace Effect, How the Power of One Life Can Reverse the Corruption of Unbelief by Larry Alex Taunton was not at all what I was expecting.  Frankly, I was expecting a somewhat dry theology book, but that is not the case at all!  This is a combination biography of a child’s adoption from the […]

Mothers in the Bible – Tamar

 “But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.”  Romans 5:20 Tamar is an interesting study.  We don’t know much about her, and what we do know doesn’t show her in a very good light.  However, she is one of the few women mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus! Jacob and Leah’s 4th son, Judah,  married […]

Mothers in the Bible – Rachel and Leah

“Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine In the very heart of your house, Your children like olive plants All around your table.  Behold, thus shall the man be blessed Who fears the LORD. ”  Psalm 128:3-4 After Jacob deceived his father and stole Esau’s blessing, he fled from Esau’s wrath to his Uncle […]

Happy New Year!

“It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.” Acts 1:7 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. ”  Jeremiah 29:11 I can hardly […]

Mothers in the Bible – Rebekah

“So they said,’We will call the young woman and ask her personally.’  Then they called Rebekah and said to her, ‘Will you go with this man?’ And she said, ‘I will go.’”  Genesis 24:57-58  After Sarah died, Abraham called his most trusted servant to him and gave him the task of finding a wife for […]
