4 Emotions That Define Motherhood

Evelyn from A Miracle in My Living Room writes: How does one prepare to be a mother? Read books? Ask questions? Babysit? Work at a daycare center? Take a course?

8 Ways To Teach Your Child Diligently

One of my favorite passages in all of scripture is Deuteronomy 6. It is one of those passages that is underlined, circled, highlighted with notes all around it in my Bible. When I go to flip to Deuteronomy, it opens to chapter 6. Yes, I certainly love this passage – and have clung to it […]

Faith: The Victory Over Fear
