Researching Your Family History

September 21, 2018
Researching

Recently I started researching my family history, and I discovered my great great grandmother’s name was Cynthia. I’m pretty sure my parents had no idea someone in our family tree had that name. Even thought I’m not named after her, I am thrilled to find another Cynthia in the family. In the past, I have found researching history a source of encouragement.

My youngest son is disabled, and I chose to homeschool him as I had my other four children.  while learning all about his needs and working to bring him up to his highest potential it was pretty easy to get discouraged.

I became interested in a historical figure and began researching. Because of his  impeccable character I really believed he was a Christian, and I was able to document his faith. How exciting to unearth something others had passed over.

His story provided the encouragement for that super tough time, and even launched me into writing because I believe if God encourages you, Like it says in 2 cor 2, we need to give that away to others.

I tell my story to rejoice in what God has done.

He wants us to do that.

When the Lord helped the Israelites cross the Jordan, he told them to pick up a large stone for every tribe to make a memorial.

Joshua 4:6 “Let this be a sign among you, so that when your children ask later, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’

 (Jos. 4:6 NAS) Joshua 4:7 then you shall say to them, ‘Because the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off.’ So these stones shall become a memorial to the sons of Israel forever.”

Today I have Rebecca Price Janney. She has been researching her family and unearth a really fun story too. Even to the point that she feels a little like Cinderella. Her latest book is Easton at the Crossroads.

Working-Mom: Michelle Medlock Adams Can Help You Succeed

August 3, 2018
Working-mom

A working-Mom often feels overloaded. Even though I didn’t work while my children were little, I understand how overwhelmed you can feel. I had five, and my youngest was severely disabled. Since I homeschooled all of them,  I felt like I had a full-time job.

However, I think we have evidence the lady described in Proverbs 31 was a working mom:

Proverbs 31:16 She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.

 Proverbs 31:24 She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant.

She knows her merchandise is good

As far as her home:  Proverbs 31:27 She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

It also said her children rise up and praise her, which convinces me this Proverbs icon had kids who were grown, but she is busy woman with a lot to offer.

At this point, my kids could accuse me of things, and I might not recall every incident because. Those years are a blur. LOL!

Today Michelle Medlock Adams is my guest. She worked as a journalist throughout her mothering career. On August 7, 2018, she has a new book  coming out for the working mom called Fabulous and Focused.

Michelle is going to share how she kept going when her girls were babies, and some of the pitfalls of the journey. After being a working mom for years, she has great encouragement and tips to make you succeed.
