Simply Living for Him

My New Favorite Month. Simple Summer.

July.

I’ve decided it is my new favorite month.

It used to be May- because it signaled school coming to a close, summer beginning, and a warm weather settling in.

But now it’s July.

(I love the hot weather!)

And nothing says summer like:

Fireflies.

Sparklers.

Ice Cream.

Lemonade.

Go-Kart nights.

Campfires and s’mores.

Barefeet and flip-flops.

The smell of sunscreen and bug spray.

Late nights.

Garden mornings.

Freeze pops.

Water fights.

All things red, white, and blue.

Cookouts.

Fishing.

Buzzcuts.

Friends.

Family.

Really…I just love everything about July. 

We’ve been up way too late these days, and I am savoring it. Laughing and chatting and eating ice cream. Even though most nights, I am begging to go to sleep while my kids are just getting going! I know this time is precious.  It’s just such a fun and relaxing time of year. I am learning to savor it. 

It’s a simple month filled with all the things summer is made of.

 

July. Enjoy it. A simple time filled with simple things. The busyness of the year is behind us and the hazy days of summer won’t last forever.

 

Simply...Seeking Him

The Sovereign Lord is my strength

 

You all know my desire and passion to get all of us in the Word every single day. What better way to use my space here on the Internet than to fill it with Scripture.

Every single day, I will have a new scripture on the blog, sometimes with thoughts about it, sometimes with questions for you to ponder, and maybe sometimes just the scripture itself. But no matter what, I am vowing to publish Truth each day so no matter who comes to this space, can find a treasure. There are no greater words to read than God’s very own words.

So while I will still be publishing my usual blog posts and podcasts, I will also have a scripture each day right here on the blog. I pray this blesses you and encourages us all to get in the Word each day. I also hope the scripture I share here is NOT a substitute for sitting down and opening the Bible yourself…but perhaps a reminder, an encouragement, or a starting point. Ultimately, there is no substitute for getting into His Word each day.

Let’s all vow to be seekers of Truth! Let’s start simply…seeking Him.

Habakkuk 3:19

The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.

Cries of JOY

My Biggest Fear for This Generation of Homeschoolers

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Years ago, homeschoolers didn’t have choices in curriculum, they didn’t have co-ops or conventions, and it may have been illegal to school your children at home. Yet, I almost envy those moms. Why is that? Today I am discussing my biggest fear for new homeschoolers and the homeschoolers of this generation.

**TIME IS RUNNING OUT- SLFH2018! Registration Ends June 30th!

This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone.  I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.

Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life-changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.
