I recently watched an incredible video by Brett Ledbetter that was applicable to so many areas of life: parenting, working, homemaking, ministry, healthy living, etc..

I’ve got such a fun treat for anyone who loves books and has kids who love books. And even if you and/or your kids hate books (perish the thought), it’s likely because they’ve never read books like these. Allow me to introduce you to Freddie Cottonmouth.

Rachel over at A Daughter of the Reformation has written a grand-slam-home-run review of True Woman 101 by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Mary Kassian. I’m going to copy/paste an excerpt to whet your whistle here – and then you can head over to her blog to read the rest. There have been a couple of […]

Of all things in the world, God hates most the man that is neither hot nor cold.
