Nudity on the Beaches and Public Pools

Nudity on the Beaches and Public Pools

About five years ago, women began wearing thong bathing suits on our beaches here in San Diego. When they were laying on their stomachs on their towels, they looked naked. I got to the place where I despised walking on the beaches with my husband. I hated being where naked and promiscuous women were, but he liked walking on the beach, so we continued walking on the beach. Well, those same beaches have completely eroded and are filled with rocks…

Spending a Lot of Money on Yourself

Spending a Lot of Money on Yourself

Many women today spend a lot of money on themselves. They spend hundreds a year on getting their hair cut and maybe colored. They spend a ton on clothing, makeup, jewelry, shoes, spa days, meals out, facials, face lifts, special aging creams and lotions, Botox, breast implants, new iPhones, and so on. Our culture caters to women by appealing to youth, fashion, and pleasure. And it seems they are successful, even among Christian women. Spending money on some of these…

Young Women Want to Be Brides, Not Wives and Mothers

Young Women Want to Be Brides, Not Wives and Mothers

Pastor Voddie Baucham preached a sermon called “What’s More Important Than A Wedding.” I took some notes and then will add my thoughts. Young women want to be brides but not wives and mothers. They want a wedding but not a marriage. What happened? It happened over a half century ago and is perfectly portrayed in Snow White (1937 which was post Depression era) and Cinderella (1950 which was post WW2 era). Let’s look at the comparison between the two….

My Very Own Fairy Tale Romance Story

My Very Own Fairy Tale Romance Story

It was December 1979 when a suitemate of mine introduced me to her brother. Her brother and I walked slowly down to our dorms. We chatted comfortably. When we arrived at the front of our dorms, we chatted some more. I didn’t think he was that handsome at the time. He wore a rust colored sweat suit, his hair parted in the middle, and big horn-rimmed glasses but he was tall, intelligent, and made me laugh. We talked easily. It…

Fierce and Independent Godly Women?

Fierce and Independent Godly Women?

Written By Israel Wayne I recently heard a famous Christian woman introducing a group of Christian celebrities to a stage. Her commendation was that they were all “fierce” and “independent” women. “Fierce” sounds kind of scary to me. “Brave” is good; “courageous” is good, but I think I’d dial back the “fierce” part. But maybe that’s just me. I tend to think of a “Karen” when I think of a “fierce” woman, and it’s not very attractive in my mind….

Losing Weight Takes Self-Control

Losing Weight Takes Self-Control

Our nation has a huge problem with obesity, and it’s only getting worse. Gluttony is common and rarely rebuked by pastors. Junk food is abundant and filled with seed oils and sugar which cause obesity and ill health. Many try diets and weight loss gimmicks. They may get the weight off but can’t keep it off. What’s the solution? I came across an article written by a woman who lost 40 pounds without dieting in six months. How did she…

Daily Wisdom For Biblical Womanhood

Daily Wisdom For Biblical Womanhood

Years ago, I used to publish handwritten posts on all of my social media sites. Some of you may remember them. Women asked me if I would make a book out of them, so we paid a woman in the chat room to type them all out for me. This sat in my file for a few years. Recently, I decided to put the book together as something that women could read daily to encourage them on their walk as…

Legalistic and Unloving or Truthful and Loving?

Legalistic and Unloving or Truthful and Loving?

As I have shared before, I like preaching and teaching that is direct. I love teaching that doesn’t beat around the bush but simply lays it out as truth, no matter how “harsh” it may seem. I want to be convicted and challenged at church by our pastor and by anything that I read. This is why I loved Debi Pearl’s book so much. She spanked me with her words! I needed it. I needed truth far more than I…

How to Become a Godly Wife

How to Become a Godly Wife

Written By Richard Steele (1672-1729) This is the wife’s special qualification. If she has all beauty and learning but no respect for her husband, she is not a good wife. Creation suggests it. She was made after the man (1 Tim. 2:13), from the man (1 Cor. 11:8), and for the man (1 Cor. 11:9). This order was not by man’s doing, but God’s. Even after the fall the divine order stands: “He shall rule over thee” (Gen. 3:16). The…

Raising Children in a World That is Far From Truth

Raising Children in a World That is Far From Truth

Recently, I was asked this question by Jessica: “I am curious on your thoughts on a topic regarding raising children. I am fairly traditional and a conservative Christian. I plan to homeschool my children, keep them away from secular television, books, and off social media. However, I don’t want to raise kids that grow up to be outcasts since entertainment is such a big topic of conversation. Or, I know several religious families who’s kids grew up to be rebellious…
