I used this book to help me through my morning Bible Reading of the Pentateuch this year.  I ended up not just referencing it, but reading thru it completely.  The simple terminology was so appreciated, perfect for the lay person.   The charts and summaries helped give the overview of the book.  So often we skim thru Numbers and Leviticus and miss the forest for the trees.  This year I wanted to try an exercise for myself in writing down my own gleaning...

Here’s a post that’s out of my ordinary topic.  However, saving money and saving time is definitely a MostlySensible part of my life.  Who doesn’t like saving money?  So I’d like to pass on a little of what I’ve found helpful to me. I hate wasting time.  I especially don’t appreciate participating in something that was supposed to be a benefit to me but isn’t in the end.  Frankly, I don’t like getting “rewards” as much as getting cash back.  I don’t...

Who doesn’t love a great easy holiday treat?   My husband and daughter whipped up some sea salt caramel last night. After letting it cool overnight, the rest of the girls helped wrap them up. Of course, we had to eat some as we wrapped them.  Add to that some “quality control” tasting we ended up with a little more than 2 1/2 lbs. of pure deliciousness!  These individual caramels are perfect for gift giving or for your own personal sweet tooth stash.  Enjoy it!   ...

I enjoyed school.  I loved the organization, the schedule, and especially the knowledge.  I Didn’t enjoy tests in particular, but I enjoyed the satisfaction and accomplishments from a good grade on a hard test.   I had a lot of good teachers.  The best teachers I ever had were tough and had high expectations of me.  They also cared about me and my classmates.   Perhaps the Christian is a student, with the local church and Christian homes and...

As a teenager and then single adult, I thought organization meant neat shelves and matching totes, and I could actually get all if my work done without writing a single to do list!  I found out life requires much more than that. Reality hit me as a young wife and mother, as a family in full time ministry, and then as a home schooling mom.  I wish I had read this book much sooner! David Allen has been called one of the world’s most influential thinkers on productivity...

Deb Brammer has done it again.  This sequel to “Broken Windows” follows the same vein of wholesome Christian fiction for young adults. I enjoyed the discussion beginning in chapter 10 about relative truth vs absolute truth, and real vs. fake conversion.  Deb Brammer demonstrates her thorough understanding of far Eastern thought and the difficulties of cross-cultural communication.   I especially love how normal Christian life* is woven into the story. ...
