Time to laugh again.  :) 

I've actually shopped at The Dress Barn before (once when they had a good sale) so this is really hilarious.  Have a good belly laugh ladies!




Who Guides the House?

Image
The Bible says in 1 Timothy 5:14 that a woman is to guide her house. (Not be the head of it, but guide it.)

I will therefore that the younger women: 
marrybear children guide the housegive none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully
We can see that after marriage and bearing children, that our work is guiding the house.  And it's very important. Never think of your job as a homemaker and housewife, as less than absolutely vital.  It is so huge.  And you are irreplaceable. 

Who else sees to it that the house is running smoothly, there are regular meals, boo boos kissed, clean places to eat, organized places to play, sanitary places to wash and soothing places rest?   Wives and Mothers.



We are indispensable in this most noble calling.  If we want to know what work the Lord has given us to do, we need turn to no other source than the Bible. 


When we guide our house, we are taking charge of the day. A wise woman looks around her, sees what needs to be done and then she sets…

Getting By in a Tough Economy

Image
We're living in very economically challenging times.  Of course it's not the first time our country's had it rough financially. It's fascinating to read about stories from the Great Depression and how people learned to live with less. Those folks were really innovative when it came to living frugally. 

In fact, if you haven't checked out Clara’s Kitchen you are missing a real treat. She has great stories and creative recipes from the depression era and she is delightful to watch.  I've tried her "poor man's meal" and it was very good.

Here are some ideas for managing your home on a tight budget. Maybe you will find a couple of them helpful for your own household.
·If you live a ways from town, try to fit all your shopping needs, library trips, etc into one trip to conserve gas.
·Eat most of your meals at home.
·If you can, grind your own grains for making your own homemade breads, muffins, cakes, flatbreads, rolls, pies, etc.
·Homemade ice cream and…

The NIV Challenge

"Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?" Gal. 4:16
If you read the NIV and believe it is the word of God, you really need to take the NIV challenge.  Click here to take the test!.

All of who I am as a born again Christian rests on my faith in Christ alone. Where does the authority we have as believers come from?  I believe it is from the Bible, God's holy word. 

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. Psalm 138:2
Do you think there is anyone out there who would like to mess up God's Word?  Hmm. Do all Bibles read the same?  Ever heard a modern church trying to read the same verse out loud?  Sounds like a mumble of chaos. 

Would anyone ever add or take away from God's words? 

Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add…

Why I Use the King James Bible

*For a good introduction to this issue,please click here.

The King James Bible is the Bible text that we have received from our fathers. 

The Bible says all Scripture was given by inspiration of God and is profitable.  So what exactly does “all Scripture” refer to?  To find out, we need only look up the word Scripture in an Exaustive Bible concordance like Strongs.  Every time scripture is used in the Bible, it never refers to only the original, but to copies of copies of copies of the original.
When Jesus was on earth and opened and read the Scriptures, he was opening a copy of the Bible and yet he called it Scripture.  Since all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, what Jesus had in his day, were copies of the originals that were given by inspiration of God.
The word "given" is interesting.All Scripture “is given”. This would indicate an ongoing process.God didn’t give us his perfect word and then abandon it and then let someone goof it up.But he  keeps preserving it and …

Beware the Little Foxes: C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis is a popular author among many Christians. What I want to know is why so many are trying so hard to make this man a Christian.


I'm thankful I was spared from his Narnia series as a child. I had never even heard of Lewis or Narnia and my husband and I were completely ignorant about Lewis' beliefs and his preoccupation in the occult. All we knew was everyone says they're great books. 

 My husband remembered reading them as a child so he bought the entire series for our kids when they were beginning to read.
It hadn't occurred to us to research Narnia's author. We usually do this with most authors because a book is no better than it's author. When we finally did poke around the internet, we were sick. We immediately got rid of the Narnia books.


Show me your friends and I'll tell you who you are.

So much can be ascertained by who a person keeps company with, but also who they admire and esteem. So it was quite nauseating to learn that C.S. Lewis had …
