Condemnation vs. Conviction

Have you ever had a thought or an urge, and you weren’t sure whether it was from God or from Satan trying to fool you? I have.  For example, I might sit down to read a good book. Then, something in the back of my mind says, “You shouldn’t be reading that. You should be…

The Cleaning Kids

The other day, my brother and I arrived at work (read more about my job here) and saw that one woman who works in the office had brought her little daughter. We’ve met the girl before, and she’s very cute! She didn’t want to talk to us, but we could hear her asking her mom questions…

What I Do for My Devotions 

Being able to talk with God and read his words whenever we want is pretty amazing, isn’t it? Even though I’m not perfect, and sometimes my devotions are more out of habit than devotion, I do really enjoy spending time alone with God.  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear…

Lessons from Job

I’ve been studying Job for quite some time now, and I have finished at last. It’s a fascinating book, and I learned a lot. Some things in the last few chapters have struck me, and I wanted to share some of them with you! At the end of the book, after all Job went through,…

Respect? 

Not too long ago, I watched a vintage game show episode in which the President was mentioned. They spoke of the President with such respect, which surprised me! I don’t hear a lot of people speak respectfully of our President or other political leaders. I know I don’t speak that way myself.  Recently, I’ve heard…

Dance in the History of the Church

Did you know that dance was a part of early church services? I was happy to discover that recently! According to my devotional book Time to Dance by Alyssa Campbell, “Several church fathers have written about how simple and traditional dance movements were used during services.” “The Lord bids us dance, not merely with the circling movements of the…

What I Learned from My Junior Year

Last Thursday, we finished our home school year! It is good to be done, and I learned a lot this year (more than just academics 😉). I thought I’d share with you guys a few things I learned. Building patience. Subjects such as chemistry and geometry were difficult without a proper teacher (my parents are…

God’s Word, Our Water

My cat, Miss Potter, has developed a funny habit. She likes to drink out of my water cup! A lot of the time, however, my cat can’t reach the water. She sticks her face in the top, reaching her tongue down as far as she can. If she can’t reach it then, she will attempt…

My Beliefs on Abortion

For my final essay of the schoolyear, the topic I chose was abortion. Please let me know what you think in the comments! When I researched my first point of this essay, Methods of Abortion, I knew I didn’t want to avoid the horrifying facts. I read in detail about the techniques used to kill…
