A million tiny things Challenge

I'm in....I am joining Time Warp Wife's Marrige Challenge for the next 8 weeks. I am all for Marriage Challenges, anything that can help, and encourage me along the way. I loved this reminds me of the verse......

"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things."
Phillipines 4:8

Here's the challenge: Grab a pen and paper and over the next few weeks jot down some of the little things he does that make a difference in your life. The things you are grateful for. Go check out her blog and all the details

I love what she says......"Why? Because gratitude has a powerful affect on our attitude and can change the dynamics of a marriage for good. The more we give strength to positive thoughts, our negative thoughts lose power. "

This is so true, anything to help our marriage and can make it grow stronger. Here's just a few things for me.

I love the way he prayers for me to get our day started
I love the way he gets my towel ready for me in the morning....
I love the way he kisses me....
I love the way he plays with our kids and engages in their lives.....
I love his heart and the compassion he has for others....

Dating Ideas
{Great for when you have little ones or on a tight budget}
I had a dear friend ask me recently for some creative date ideas when you have little ones, I had a few and I'm not so creative when it comes to this. So I asked another dear friend of mine, whom has little ones, for some ideas. I thought I'd share them here, since I am doing the marriage challenges.

  • Have Yahtzee or Scrabble tournaments (Just something fun together)
  • Make a memory lane box together -decorate a shoe box or something fancy and put old letters/cards whatever...have fun doing it
  • Play twister...never know how things might turn out {wink, it}
  • Read marriage enrichment book together (we try to do a section or chapter a week)
  • Play marriage game-ask each other questions from your past and try and recall together. See who knows more details.
  • Take kids to the park and sit on the bench with hubby snuggled close or play a game of tag. That's always fun
  • Once kids are in bed, have a candlelight dinner or dessert at the table, dim the lights and turn off all phones, tv, etc..
{Thank you Tami for the great ideas! }

Do you have any creative ideas for dates with your honey?

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
