Being a Mom is the Best!

When I was newly married, I did not give much thought to having children. In-fact, we decided that we were not going to have children. I’m not sure why my husband did not want children, but I know why I didn’t. There were a few reasons. One, I had no idea how to be aContinue reading “Being a Mom is the Best!”

FIVE UNPOPULAR TEACHINGS OF JESUS — Beloved Creative Studio

God purposed us to be His. He loves you! Nothing terribly unpopular here (everyone likes to be loved), but for everyone who has believed in Jesus for their justification before God, by the blood of Christ, He desires you to now be set apart. This is where the rubber meets the road. You are His… FIVEContinue reading “FIVE UNPOPULAR TEACHINGS OF JESUS — Beloved Creative Studio”

When all the Good Men are Gone: Laura Ingraham Articulates an Important Point

She puts into words something I have thought for a long time. Modern feminism has ruined men, and when men fail to hold other men accountable, women suffer. It’s not always in these out in the open ways, either (God help those women, that is truly terrible). Women also suffer from men who are negligent,Continue reading “When all the Good Men are Gone: Laura Ingraham Articulates an Important Point”

Considering Proverbs 11:13

A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. Several ideas come to mind for me when I read this proverb. The first is perhaps the most obvious. When someone entrusts a person with confidential information, a faithful person will keep the information hidden while an unfaithful person willContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:13”

Do Not Sound a Trumpet Before You (Virtue Signal)

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may haveContinue reading “Do Not Sound a Trumpet Before You (Virtue Signal)”

Sometimes it is Love to Subdue Your Enemies

My two oldest sons have been enrolled in a Judo school for a few months now. I appreciate the discipline they are learning and I don’t have any problem with my boys learning how to defend themselves or others. On the other hand, I work hard to teach them to control themselves and they knowContinue reading “Sometimes it is Love to Subdue Your Enemies”

Considering Proverbs 11:12

He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace. If there is one thing we have in abundance these days, it is the tendency towards despising our neighbor. It is easy to despise things that we do not understand. It is easy to despise people who sinContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:12”

These Things Saith He – Scriptures for Ephesus

“This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” All things should be done out of love towards Jesus and our fellow man. It does not matter how right we are factually; if our heart or spirit is not right, then the good that we might do is corrupted andContinue reading “These Things Saith He – Scriptures for Ephesus”

The Narcissistic Abuse Cycle from a Christian Perspective

Idealize. Devalue. Discard. Over and over. It is quite dizzying and crazy-making behavior, as anyone who has been through this will understand. First, they seem to adore you. They excitedly talk about the things you will experience together one day or grand plans they have to do some good for you in the future. Next,Continue reading “The Narcissistic Abuse Cycle from a Christian Perspective”
