The wonderful truth is that as children of God, we have the privilege to have Christ […]

Learn to Feed Yourself

Play

When did you learn to feed yourself? Or if you can’t remember that far back, at what age did you teach your children to feed themselves? None of us mind feeding babies and toddlers, but at a certain age we want them to learn to feed themselves. Having to feed a five-year-old or a ten-year-old […]

Simplifying Our Lives

Play

Simplifying your life means that you try to eliminate unnecessary time stealers, unnecessary stress builders, unnecessary attention grabbers. I have learned that the more stuff I have around me, the more distracted I am. From simple things like keeping work areas uncluttered to cleaning out closets and getting rid of things you never use or […]

Fran & Jesus on the Job: Working From Home

Play

Do you know what it means to give yourself some grace? I’m finding that this new world in which we all are now trying to find our way requires a lot of grace. Grace we give others and grace we give ourselves. Just learning to overlook some things that irritate us, letting go of some […]

Fran & Jesus on the Job: Working From Home

Am I A Liberated Woman?

Play

Am I a liberated woman? If indeed the question was “Are you a feminist?” my answer to that would be “no.” While I can agree with some of their objectives, pertaining to equal opportunity for women, and while I’ve personally benefited from those opportunities, there is much about their organized movement that I find anti-biblical. […]

Adjusting Our Expectations

Play

Think about what you expect heaven to be like. You’re probably thinking “streets of gold, mansions to live in, harmony, love, no tears.” And the Bible certainly tells us to expect all that. But I’m convinced we don’t even begin to know what is waiting for us as believers at our final destination. Scripture frequently […]
