The Character of your Husband

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Recently I made a comment on a rather controversial subject. A friend of my husband stated “I believe you since I know the character of your husband.”

The prayers of the Saints

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

When I had trouble in my pregancy I would turn to my brothers and sisters in Christ to ask for prayer. The Lord heard the cries of His children and was merciful on me.

I ask you to pray for a family who desperatly needs prayer.
Pray and please leave them a message letting them know you are praying. I know how encouraging it is in dark times, and this family is in dark times.

When I sleep and am rested, I am cheerful and eager to see what wonderful things Abigail will do next. When I don’t sleep, well, I am tested.

On Submission, Part I

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

I began my study searching verses to strengthen my marriage. After our miscarriage and my sorrow, which grew as time increased, we had some difficulties in our marriage. Brandon was harsh and I was weepy and instigating. I sought out passages to teach me my role as a woman and a wife. (more…)
