Today we are talking about changing the mindest of criticism and complaint which is a reaction in your flesh and responding instead by the Spirit. Listen in and then let me know your thoughts! I’d love to hear from you!
One of the most important things to do before you even start to evangelize is to make sure you are spending time with the Lord first. How can you share what you don’t know?
But guess what? You don’t have to have all the theological answers, biblical knowledge, and facts. People will see Him because Christ lives in you. Spend time with Him. Become more like Him. It truly is the first step to evangelism.
Many never evangelize because they think they may not have all the answers. But you don’t need to. The Holy Spirit will always lead you in your conversations. But you must ask Him to lead you. Seek the Lord and trust Him to work through you.
Don’t make evangelism about what you can do. Make it about what God can do through you.
Simply start by sending time with Him each day. In Word and prayer. People will recognize Him in you.

Simply Go! is a new initiative of the Simply Living for Him ministry that focuses on missional living in the lives of everyday women. Based on Acts 4:13, which describes the disciples as ordinary men who had been changed by an extraordinary God, and those around them simply recognized that they had been with Jesus. As we begin to approach Spring, we have some ideas that we will move forward with for our Simply Go! initiative. We will share resources, new challenges, and encouraging blog articles about being missional in your everyday life.
We want to encourage you that you can be missional right where you are–in your home, community, and everyday life. You simply need to reflect Jesus! So while Simply Living for Him provides resources to help you spend time with Jesus, Simply Go! is the next step in then shining that light!
This world is getting darker each day and it is our duty and privilege to shine the light of Christ! You will find challenges, ideas, encouragement, and resources in this section.
Last week I had the privilege to sit down with Rosenda Valenzuela for a conversation on my podcast about homemaking. I loved our time together and I would encourage you to go listen! (find it here) In a world of HGTV and Instagram, Rosenda is a breath of fresh air, as she teaches about homemaking, not for aesthetics, but for the heart of your home.
Your home is a ministry. In serving your family, you are serving the Lord. After our conversation, I began to think about some other aspects of homemaking and its importance. One being, that we are providing a place of stability in a world that is chaotic.
It isn’t news to me that our world, and children especially, are encountering major mental health issues these days. The world is chaotic, upside down, and there is no grounding truth any more. Fear is everywhere, comparison, social media- I can’t even begin to name all of the things this generation has to deal with.
And so homemaking, a “profession” not known for its nobility anymore, is actually more necessary than ever.
When we keep our home, serve our family, and put effort into the atmosphere, the meals, and the surroundings, it teaches children they have a safe place. A home where the Lord is at the center is what our children need to find stability in this fallen world that seems to be spiraling daily.
Homemakers have an incredible change to change the world! When our families have a safe place, a loving home, and a godly atmosphere where they feel loved, it truly makes a difference.
So dear homemaker, never think what you are doing isn’t important.The world will make you think because you aren’t hustling to climb the ladders, you don’t matter. But in fact, you matter. Whether you are a stay at home mother or work outside, you still are making a home. And you are instilling so much into those precious souls each day.
I am super excited to introduce you to Rosenda Valenzuela today as a special guest on the podcast. Rosenda’s YouTube Channel, Little Pink Casa is such an encouraging space and I have enjoyed watching her videos about homemaking and being a wife and mom. Her heart is evident for making your home a beautiful place, not for Pinterest or Instagram, but for the Lord and her family. She is such an encouragement. Grab your coffee or tea and listen as we talk about the heart behind homemaking and serving your family.
