In Part 1 of this article, we looked at The Child of God under Law.  I drew a correlation between Law and Childhood because that’s what Paul did in Galatians 3:21-25.  God has treated us differently in the Age of Law than He does in the Age of Grace.  Likewise, parents treat their children differently in the “Dispensation of Childhood”...

  Through circumstances recently, I’ve been reminded of the gaping hole in the human heart that only God can fill.  In an earthly sense, we have to wait a little longer for the harvest of delicious crops and gardens.  But in the spiritual realm, the souls of men are white already to be harvested.  We only need spiritual perception and sensitivity to see when that seed is ready.  Some plant, some till the ground, some reap, but God gives the increase.  As we watch the harvest come in, as we enjoy...

If you have a young boy, do you have this problem?  My son likes to keep his Lego set packaging so that he can look at the pictures.  I guess it’s like a magazine for him.  The problem is, of course, that it’s a mess of broken down boxes that keep his room from looking nice and neat.  Well, I had an idea. I needed to turn this pile of boxes… … into a more organized apparatus like this…   Using ModgePodge, I glued some fabric...

Nancy Campbell’s book has been reprinted 5 times.  It has become a mainstay in the Quiverfull ideology, however, I’m not sure it’s in print currently. It is not for sale even on her own website.  I got mine used.  The main premise of the book is obvious, that God’s first and primary command is to be fruitful and multiply.  This means to her that any and all prevention or modification of conception is anti-biblical.  There were so...

One of my favorite verses of the Psalms.  The Psalmist reminds us that it is alright to stop our overloaded schedules and take time to meditate on God’s Word.  Indeed, it is necessary!  In Christianity, meditation is not disengaging the mind, but rather focusing the mind on God’s character and what He has told us.  Laying aside distractions is a essential part of growth.  Pulling the weeds that threaten to choke out our joy and peace is necessary.  Vance Havner once said, “If you don’t...

Dr. Myron Houghton’s book has been indispensable to me in organizing my thoughts concerning today’s issues.  How does one practically live out the Christian life if we believe all of the Bible to be profitable for us?  The following review summarizes it perfectly from Aletheia Baptist Ministries: This new book by Dr. Houghton is a long-awaited and welcomed addition to the important issue of law and grace in the believer’s life.  It could as well have...

The girls’ quilts are done! My #3 and #4 girls share a room.  Although they are not twins, they were born in the same year.  Last year I decided to do their quilts in tandem so neither one of them would have to wait a whole year until theirs in done.  I did the same pattern but different colors for each girl.  One was pink with light green accents, and the other was dark purple with dark green accents.  It worked out beautifully and with my schedule it took about a year to do.   The pattern is...
