Book Review Gideon Bible study by Priscilla Shirer

  Another winner By Mrs Shirer  I did this when it was offered by Lifeway. So got to get the video portions also for free.     The videos are powerful. and worth the money if you are taking on your own later.  It gave me a good start for each chapter.      Why did I decide to do this Bible study?  The front of the book says Gideon Your weakness God;s Stength.  The back says God can use your weakness.             And I have plenty of weak areas in my life.  I am in a season of overwhelm, feeling inexperienced with my shop and insufficient occasionally with my children and other areas.  So yes this was...

Training vs Trying which one is right for Christians?

I am not sure I ever consciously thought I am not good at this Christian thing I am just going to walk away.  But I did walk away.  I think because of several things, one is not knowing that this is a process and if I keep doing this in my strength I will not be able to do it.  But if I train with the Holy Spirit all things are possible.    Think about it when you are trying something new how much easier is it with a guide, a mentor, a helper, a comforter?   That is what the Holy Spirit is for us.  He comes alongside us and shows so much. We do not realize we must train...

Book Review; Life Interrupted By Priscilla Shirer

I am being more intentional in my reading life. 2018 saw me read a record number of Christian books fiction and non-fiction. Some I picked up due to curiosity and some due to a question or situation I found myself in. For me to really love a book I have to laugh several times, It needs to be written for everyone, not just the scholarly (most days I am reading either early in the morning or before bed neither a good time to take on anything too deep) It needs to give action points or suggestions. It needs to refer to scripture frequently. It needs to be based on scripture, not someone's opinion. Life Interrupted was excellent.     What...
