Welcome April 2020

April 1, 2020

In this new month of uncertainty, The One, is certain. As we do each month, let’s start with prayer, and choose to believe that He is in control of all things… Dear Abba Father, how desperately we need you in this time of upheaval. I pray for those suffering with COVID-19 and for the doctors and nurses who are overwhelmed with patients. Grant first responders grace and stamina as they care for our people and please restore the financial structure of our nation. Dear Father, use this crisis to realign our hearts with yours. I praise you I can be confident in my heavenly home even in chaos. I am grateful I serve a risen Savior, not a god made of stone or a figment of my imagination. The great I AM is my Father. Jesus is risen. He is risen, indeed. In Jesus name, Amen.

Our mission: Be intentional to “bloom” for Jesus. May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father.

How to Find the Key to Your Child’s Heart

March 13, 2020

Before I became a parent, I determined I wouldn’t make the mistakes I’d seen others make. I had a long list of criteria that would dazzle any child. However, soon after I had my first child, I discovered parenting challenged me. I had several more, and that feeling grew. Kids aren’t alike so what worked for one didn’t work with the rest. I discovered prayer and good counsel helped.

My guest this week was Counselor Gwyn McCaslin and she works at Hope Creek Counseling in Sugar Creek, Ohio. I’ve known her for years and watched as she finished her counseling degree. Her advice awes me every time.

As we do each month, let’s start with prayer: Father God, King of the Universe, I praise you for life, breath, and another day to glorify you. Thank you for waking the trees and flowers in the spring and for leaving beauty despite the fall. With Your Spirit guide every word I speak so I can bless and encourage those around me. May I live every day with eternity in view and shun selfish thoughts. In Jesus name, Amen.

How to Have a Hard Conversation

February 21, 2020

Women don’t like conflict. I’d rather hide than tackle a difficult topic, but I had to learn when I directed writing conferences. Otherwise, I wouldn’t get anything accomplished.

The Bible says to speak the truth in love, and my guest this week offers ways to do that. Lori Roeleveld wrote The Art of Hard Conversations.

How to Teach Your Children about Real Love on Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2020

When I grew up, we passed out valentines to everyone in our classroom and ate candy with cute quotes. I always saved the prettiest valentines for my friends, but no one talked about love.

However, moms can use the celebration to teach their children that love if more than a feeling, it’s a choice to act.

Author Peggy Sue Wells offered ways to educate and have fun at the same time.
