Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness

Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study Goodness Goodness is not a passive quality.  It’s a deliberate choice of right over wrong, the firm resistance to moral wrong/evil, and choosing to follow all moral good.  It’s not the easy choice for sure, but it’s the right choice. With more than 25 verses in the Bible about good or goodness it was a little more difficult to choose which ones to dig into.  I’ve chosen 5 for this study but I have {Read More}

Fruit of the Spirit: Gentleness

Fruit of the Spirit Gentleness Gentleness.  This is not something that comes naturally to me.  It is also not something that I gave much thought to before I had kids.  Sad right?!  I mean we should all think about how our actions are affecting others – are we being gentle with them? I was always the mouth.  I always had the quick come back or under the breath remark.  Okay, full disclosure, I still really struggle with giving a gentle {Read More}

Fruit of the Spirit: Self-Control

Fruit of the Spirit Study Self-Control Self-Control… Does anyone else look at that word and pause?  We all want to think we have self-control, but do we really? Self-Control:  Restraint exercised over one’s own impulses, emotions, or desires. It’s so easy to point out what others are not doing right, how THEY aren’t exercising control.  But no one likes to think about their own failures, their own lack of restraint. I want to take this time to retrain myself and {Read More}

Kindergarten Take 2

Kindergarten Take 2 Without a doubt this was the most difficult decision I have had to make about my child’s education.  Not for my daughter.  But for me.  In my own head I was turning this whole thing into a “I’m a failure” moment.  Why was I doing this? My youngest is a “look squirrel” kinda kid.  She is loving, caring, hysterical and very smart little 5 year old.  But she is easily distracted.  She will not only cut you {Read More}

Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study

Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you know that I’ve been reading Rachael Carman’s book – How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You?  It’s been a wonderful (yet sometimes painful) eye-opener for me.  Her book is all about hearing what God is saying to you through what you are saying to your kids.  It’s truly made me think about and ultimately change my focus. Recently my oldest had to learn {Read More}

It’s Time To Be Real

It’s Time To Be Real! Some times I think we are our own worst enemy.  We tend to think our friends have it all figured out or their life is some how “better” than our own.  You know you’ve felt this way from time to time with at least one of your friends.  If not in “real life” at least through social media. You see their well behaved children and wonder what are they doing differently than you.  Their perfectly {Read More}
