Deny Yourself and Follow God’s Law

Warning: This is an accountability post. It is not meant to judge or condemn but to challenge you in your walk.

I recently read a post on Grace to You that features a video of John MacArthur. The post talks about the question of why Christians should have to follow God’s law if we are covered by grace. After all, we are saved and that is forever so nothing we do can take that away. MacArthur, as usual, offers invaluable wisdom on the topic and I encourage you to read the post and watch the short video. Continue reading

Word Up! The Vocab Show

Vocabulary is not usually a fun subject around our house, especially for my middle schooler. It was one of those dreaded daily tasks that had to be done and always required writing that seemed to go on for days, at least from my son’s point of view. When I told him I wanted him to try a new vocabulary program, I got grunts and groans and an, “okay, whatever.” When I told him it would not require daily writing projects, he perked up. After he watched the first video lesson, he was sold and therefore so was I!

So, what program could possibly get a middle school boy excited about vocabulary?

So excited that he actually asks to do vocabulary!

One Year Ago Today…

Thomas was in so much pain, he couldn’t get out of bed. What we thought was a sore muscle, ended up being a visit to the emergency room that turned our lives upside down. We didn’t know it, but we were in for the ride of our lives.


I cannot believe it has been a year. We have been through so much over the past year. I am grateful for the past year. We have seen our lowest lows and some of our highest highs through it all. It was the wildest roller coaster I have ever ridden for sure. Through it all God showed Himself. God comforted. God healed. God Provided.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

James 1:2-4
