There are many lovely and beautiful ladies in our churches! I love each of them and admire them for their qualities that I identify with, and for those qualities that I lack. All of us have differing talents and ability, strengths and weaknesses. Each of us has a certain set of responsibilities that God has given us, and I’m so glad that He has not left us to wonder and guess at what we should be about. Our Lord has directed us to some specific things we ought to be doing, who should be doing them, how we should be while doing...

This quote is sometimes attributed to Max Lucado, but some have said that is not true.  So I submitted the question to the Max Lucado official website for confirmation.  They responded that it is not a Max Lucado quote and they have not been able to find the source either.   At any rate, I like the sentiment, and I hope it is a challenge and blessing to you. ...

Sigh.  We are all like the children of Israel. Exodus is an exciting and action-packed book, isn’t it?  Giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles.   (Ok, giants don’t show up until 1 Samuel, and I’m past the allusion to The Princess Bride.)  But Exodus is really an easy book to read, and it is so easy to see why God put it in the Bible for us.  The hard part is applying the truths to ourselves.   We are getting...

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!   ...

This is what I do every week.  There are so many things that come my way that need to be tracked or worked on or engaged with.  Generally, I’m an organized person even though I have four little saboteurs buzzing around me every day.  But every year as my children grow older and they become more considerate and helpful around the house, my happy little list-making self is becoming more and more productive.   So I just wanted to share with you something that has been a HUGE help to me in the last year.  It...
