Do You Have Godly Conversation?

Do You Have Godly Conversation?

Women are commanded to win their disobedient husbands without a word by their godly conversation as stated in 1 Peter 3:1. Philippians 1:27 states, “Only let your conversation be as it becomes the gospel of Christ.” The Lord wants all believers in Him to have godly conversation. What does this mean? Does it only refer to our conversation and what we say or does it include a lot more? Charles Spurgeon has this to say about this word “conversation.” “In the…

This Family Pursues Holy Living

This Family Pursues Holy Living

Last week, I received this package filled with wonderful gifts from a godly woman who has read my blog for six months. Along with the gifts, she sent me a long letter that I want to share with you (with her permission, of course.) I was 25 when the Lord awakened me and saved my wretched soul from His wrath. I live every day in complete gratitude that He would save someone like me. I will never understand, but am so…

Thirty-Six Years of Marriage

Thirty-Six Years of Marriage

Two weeks ago, I asked the women in the chat room to post a picture of themselves kissing their husbands. Many posted pictures of their wedding day since that was the last picture they had of them kissing. The last picture Ken and I had of us kissing was on our wedding day thirty-six years ago, so I asked him to come kiss me so I could post a picture in the chat room. Yes, it’s a bit blurry since…

From Lesbian Feminist to Godly Femininity

From Lesbian Feminist to Godly Femininity

Written By Emily Thomes Recently I came across the photo on the left and did a double take. The girl in that photo, with her hollow eyes and hopeless heart, no longer bears any resemblance to me. She was dead in her sin (Eph. 2:1). (To be clear, I am not saying everyone who looks like the girl on the left is dead in sin, or that everyone who looks like the girl on the right is not. Spiritual reality runs…

The Regainer of Paradise

The Regainer of Paradise

Written By Charles Spurgeon Let us today go down to Bethlehem, and in company with wondering shepherds and adoring Magi, let us see him who was born King of the Jews, for we by faith can claim an interest in him, and can sing, “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.” Jesus is Jehovah incarnate, our Lord and our God, and yet our brother and friend; let us adore and admire. Let us notice at…

Healthy Chocolate

Healthy Chocolate

Most everyone loves desserts but sugar is bad for everyone. It is the cause of most diseases and plays havoc on the gut. A healthy gut is needed to be healthy. My sister, Alisa, took an intensive health class that lasted almost a year. She has found great recipes to build up and nourish our bodies instead of tearing them down. Most everyone, however, loves a sweet once in a while so she told me about this chocolate candy recipe…

The King and the Maiden

The King and the Maiden

Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard told a parable about why God did what He did to show us His love. Imagine there was a King who loved a humble maiden. She had no royal pedigree, no education, no standing in the royal court. She dressed in rags. She lived in a hovel; she lived the ragged life of a peasant. But for reasons no one could quite figure out, the King fell in love with this girl in the way the…

She Does Him Good and Not Evil – Proverbs 31:12

She Does Him Good and Not Evil – Proverbs 31:12

Proverbs 31:12 tells us that a godly wife does her husband good and not evil. Some synonyms for good are excellent, favorable, marvelous, positive, superb, valuable, and wonderful. Some antonyms for good (bad = what a godly wife doesn’t want to be known for) are disagreeable, unacceptable, unhelpful, worthless, mean, noxious, rotten, unreliable, vicious, vile, and unvirtuous. Do you do your husband good or evil? She builds up his home, instead of tearing it down. She speaks respectfully to him,…
