Hell: We Can’t Afford to Get it Wrong

May 19th, 2011

“I’m like a piece of clay trying to explain to other pieces of clay what the potter is like. Think about that for a second. It shows the silliness for any of us to think we are an expert on Him. Our only hope is that He would reveal to us what He is like, and then we can just repeat those things.”

This is very good (I adore his humility). It’s worth the watch (and I know your time is valuable).

Will you read the book when it comes out?

Monday Morning Links (Because Everybody Does it On Friday)

May 9th, 2011

Okay, I’m not really being rebellious by placing my links on a Monday instead of a Friday, it’s because my first link just wouldn’t fit last Friday. Read on.

Parenting from the Overflow

My friend Teri Lynne has just (today!) released a new ebook called Parenting from the Overflow, and I love the premise (she is so right on):

“My heart is set on being a child who first sits at the feet of her Father, who calls out for His guidance and leans on His Word. And as I focus on being the child He created, I am sure of this:

He will give me the wisdom to parent the child He has entrusted me.”
There are SO many times I feel like I am not the mother my babes need…I’m just not good enough, they deserve better. What a lie! God gave me my children (and He’s given you your children), and with bended knees and a bended spirit to the One, I can be the parent my children need. The book goes through the fruit of the spirit, helping us to love our babes from the overflow we have from the Father. Each chapter also includes a “Take Action” section, challenges for you to do with your daughter (example: “Make a fruit salad with your girl…Share with her that while the fruit we eat gives us nourishment and helps us grow strong bodies, the Fruit of the Spirit shows that God is working in our hearts and helping us grow strong spiritually) and for yourself: Make a list of all your dreams for your child, everything you hope for her to be and experience. Then offer your list to the Lord, trusting Him that His plan is even better than anything you could dream up for your sweet girl).

The ebook is only $5 and ALL the proceeds to go support the Mercy House, a place that provides alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of Kenya (read more here).

I wanted to be seen as the perfect mom, too, By Tricia Goyer (author extraordinaire and spokesperson for the DaySpring Recordable Storybooks)

“…perhaps some of our favorite memories are from when we forgot there was a world out there we were trying to impress … and just enjoyed being together…”

Prayer Warriors

I’m SURE you have heard of Prayer Warriors – Praying the Word for Boys by Brooke McGlothlin, right?

Are you a mother of boys who often finds herself wanting to waive the white flag in defeat?

Do they drain you, overwhelm you, steal your heart, break your heart and cause you more anxiety than you ever dreamed possible?

Maybe you only have one boy amongst a sea of estrogen and you just can’t figure out how to respond to him in a way that affirms all that is good about his masculinity.

There are so many books out there today on the topic of parenting boys that I can’t count them. Nor do I have time to read them all. But even if I did, reading these books and putting the solid tools in them to work still doesn’t come with guarantees.
Knowing this, it becomes quite clear that there is only one thing we can do…

Plead with God.


Ya’ll, it’s now UPDATED and available on KINDLE! Yay! Get it here!

That’s all for now folks! Happy Monday morning!

A $10 Must

December 29th, 2010

“My fall happened quickly. In April of 2005 I was happy, looking forward to an acting career and experiencing intense spiritual growth. By the second week of May I was sleeping with my friend’s husband and three weeks later she knew about it. Three weeks is barely a moment and I did more damage to more innocent people than I ever thought I possibly could.”

If you could only buy one book this year, I’d say make it Grace is for Sinners by Serena Woods.

Grace is for Sinners holds a message of grace that is uncommon and uncomfortable.

And the message has had a huge impact on my view of grace.

“Serena Woods’ autobiographical account of her experience with grace minces no words. ‘Grace Is For Sinners’ is a gritty reflection of what moral failure looks like within the glass doors of Christianity. Serena’s transparency regarding her sin and the aftermath would have been enough to challenge most, but she doesn’t stop there. She goes on to challenge the church’s response to Christians who sin with an in depth study of the Bible. Out of context scripture is used to condemn the sinner, but Serena found the in-context grace that saturates the Gospel. Her defense of the salvation power of Jesus is found in ‘Grace Is For Sinners’!”

You can read an excerpt from the book here. You can read an interview with Serena about the book here.

Grace is for Sinners is only $10 in my shop. However, if you purchase the Grace Wins necklace you get the book for FREE through January 7th.

I earn no money from the sale of this book, I just want to get it into your hands.

“The damage of sin is something that no human can fix. But God can and has. Jesus and His overwhelming grace, love, and mercy are not exclusive rights to people who avoid pitfalls. Jesus’ work on the cross is for the pitfalls. The unrelenting cruelty of simply being alive. Sin is inevitable, even sin hidden behind the twisted mask of religion. It’s as much a part of being alive as being born…We all sin and that’s why Jesus came. Grace is for sinners.” -Serena Woods


In other news, the Raising Generations necklace is on sale for $25. :)
