A Homemaking Podcast to encourage Christian wives, mothers and homemakers in the role God has called them to.
When we grasp our relationship with God as our Father and rest securely in His care and love, it will change what we do and why we do it. We will not be looking for the approval of men but only of God, and there is where we receive the greatest reward that isn't lost because it is done out of love for our Father in Heaven, and He has seen it, and He will reward us.

We are to be imitators of Jesus who is God incarnate and we are to reflect his image to a lost and dying world. One way we do that is by loving our enemies

Studies in the Sermon on the Mount by Martyn Lloyd Jones
Today, we live in a culture all about self and our rights and self-esteem. Jesus desires those of us in Christ not to be self-focused and not to take offense so quickly that we immediately seek retaliation.
Our hope is to have our eyes so focused on Christ and who we are in Christ and our purpose and mission that we don't let insults or criticism bother or thwart our mission.

I don't know about you, but I don't always take correction well initially. Usually, I come around, but sometimes it takes me much longer than it should. Pride is such an ugly sin, isn't it??

Jesus calls us to be people of the truth and people who keep their word. We need to be people whose yes is yes and whose no is no.
"Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.' 34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his foo...
If someone were to ask your family if you were a patient person, what would their response be? I want to consider myself a patient person, but I'm not sure what my family would say, especially when I'm under stress or when things aren't working out on my timetable.
Are we patient with our children when they come to us with questions and requests at the most seemingly inconvenient times? How about difficult people in ou...
I know many of our lives have been affected by divorce, and it is a sensitive subject. There is much hurt and pain in many of your lives still by divorce, so my desire isn't to cause you any more hurt—so please know my heart here before we start to dig in. I always want to be biblical, and the question that we're answering in all these episodes is to be, "What does God's Word say?"

As Christians who live in a world that denies absolute truth, we are going to run into controversy. Controversy is an area we need to learn to deal with in a God-honoring way when there are issues inside and outside our churches that need to be addressed.

We live in a culture today that is obsessed with sex and sensuality. From tv ads, magazines at grocery store checkouts, perfume ads, images of women in their undergarments in store windows, to the songs on the radio that glamorize infidelity—how is it possible to live a life of purity in such a society?
Our text in today's episode is Matthew 5:27-30: 27 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.&...
One of the ways we adorn the gospel (as it states in Titus 2:10) or make it beautiful is by the care and keeping of our homes. We have been given the responsibility, as Christian women, to the care and management of our homes.
In this episode, the hope in our time together is that we capture the reality of God's hand in every aspect of our lives as workers at home. There is purpose ladies being worked out in our normal day-to...
Are we always mindful as we think of our sinful anger, even though it doesn't lead to physically murdering someone, is committing murder against another person in our heart, and will also be judged by the Lord?
One commentator stated: "We would learn that we actually do worse things than these if we could only see our hearts as God is able to see them."
We are all murderers. Have you ever lost your temper, harbored ...
Jesus did not come to do away with the Law—He came to fulfill it. As we continue on in our series on the Sermon on the Mount we will see how Christ fulfills the scriptures and what place the law has in our lives as His followers
Our text today is Matthew 5:17-20: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and e...
Do you, as a Christian, plan your days, so you're using your time wisely (Ephesians 5:15-16)? We don't just want to live to get things done or get the most things done; we want to get done what we should be focusing on or prioritizing.
Come listen in as we walk through Ephesians 5:15-16 together:
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
Psalm 1 stands as an introduction to the rest of the Psalms. It describes two different paths that we frequently see in the Psalms; the way of the righteous and the way of the wicked. We're going to walk through this Psalm together in today's episode.

"If God’s favor to us were based on our performance—we’re in trouble because even our best days are flawed with sin. We don’t always have pure motives and really in some way we are always looking out for ourselves.”

When Christians begin living like Christians, it affects the world around them. We are light to a dark world. Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12), and He is a great light that has come to those dwelling in darkness (Matthew 4:16).
Because of Christ's work in those of us who are in Christ, we are now light, and we're to live as children of light. We are to have nothing to do with darkness because we've been deli...
My hope today is to encourage some of you homemakers who feel overwhelmed when it comes to the care of your home. I'm still a learner even after 35 years and I hope you will always consider yourselves learners. What I'm sharing with you are tasks and routines that have worked well for me over the years so don't feel you need to put in place each one but maybe you can gain a tip or two today for your home.
In this next episode of the Sermon on the Mount, we start with two common pictures we're all familiar with from everyday life. No matter your location in the world—you know what salt and light are. We are to be salt, and we are to be light or better to state as the scripture states - we ARE salt, and we ARE light.?
We're going to take these one at a time, so today, we're just working through Matthew 5:13:
Self-pity is a selfish tendency that takes our eyes off Christ and puts them on ourselves. We forget “God works all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.” Are we able to give God “thanks in all things”?

As we hunger and thirst for righteousness, it will lead us to be persecuted for righteousness' sake. A true Christian will suffer persecution in one form or another.
Today we are on the eighth beatitude in Matthew 5:10-12: 10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil ag...
