This is a blog for women (not just moms) who:

(1) Desire to be transformed by JESUS' LOVE, HOLINESS, AND GRACE;

(2) Believe that GOD'S WORD is the true Spirit food for HIS HOLY SPIRIT who lives within us;

(3) Submit to GOD and walk this journey of life with HIM transforming us more and more into HIS likeness.

It's a blog about the POWER OF TRANSFORMED LIVES. Let's begin with yours and mine and pass it on... 1 + 1 + 1...

Since GOD's HOLY SPIRIT lives inside a christian, let's choose to be nurtured and transformed by feasting daily on HOLY SPIRIT food - GOD's WORD - The Holy Bible..

My regular posts stopped in 2013, with a major move and the chronic illness and eventual death of our oldest daughter. Yes, we grieve daily, but I plan to begin posting once or more a week beginning the end of 2017. December 2017 to June 2018 will focus on JESUS' "Sermon on the Mount".

Earlier posts follow daily formats, as follows:

...Sunday in the SON

......Meditation Monday


............Women in the WORD Wednesday

...............Transforming Thursday

..................Family Fellowship Friday

.....................Ketchup and Mustard Saturday.

There's a whole lot here! Take your time to browse.

Please come back and visit often. Welcome!

Because of JESUS, we can be family,



Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

Catch Up and Must Do!

So, what do you do when you get squeezed? That's a question that has come up alot on this blog lately. This week we've talked about having a power source and making sure that what's on the inside of us is what God wants to be there.

This week has been extremely busy for many. One of the things that keeps me encouraged through the week is to hear from and stay connected with my christian family. One of the great things about Facebook and email is that encouragement can sometimes happen from someone in another state, country, or continent. This week I saw several Facebook status' that caught my eye and gave me reason to be encouraged. These came from South America, Texas, Illinois, Nebraska, Virginia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. GIGATTAATTGIG! Here are a few:

"To the weak I become weak, to win the weak."
1 Corinthians 9:22

"My son made the honor roll again! Congrats lil one,
whoever knew that walking out of the abortion clinic
would be the best decision I've ever made.
Thank you God for your convicting Spirit!!!
I serve and all knowing; all powerful God!!!"
"Thou and Thou only,
first in my heart,
High King of heaven,
my Treasure Thou art."
“To be trusted is
a greater compliment
than being loved.”
Cristi Schwamb from the hospital
in Philadelphia awaiting a heart
transplant for her 3 year old posted:
"God Is Great All The Time
And All The Time God Is Great!"
Cristi's husband, Tim, posted from home in the DC area:
"Tim, made gravy tonight all by himself!"
Then there were two status' by ,Vanessa and one comment:
  1. V received an email from her grandmother (Mama Sikes): "You're doing a great job with an eternal purpose. Never fail to DAILY teach them Bible stories with the memorization of scripture with everyday applications so that Jesus lives in their decision making. Always give God the Glory and the reason why you do and say what you do. Love ya' heaps, Mama Sikes""
  2. Then, there was Vanessa's Wednesday status: "V is so grateful Reese didn't get hit by a car while in the car pool line at school. Thank you LORD!!!"
  3. Later Vanessa explained the rest of the storyabout her little preschooler: "R" was taking a little longer to get out of his seat. He had to put on his jacket and backpack (he wanted it buttoned up) but I told him that people were waiting on us to leave. So I kissed him and got him out of the van. Then "M" comes running out of the building yelling and jumping!! I didn't know what it was about until I saw the car ... getting OUT of line to pass us!! She kept yelling, "You could have killed him!!" I was so scared yet thankful that he stopped. I know a major issue is a language barrier but I think he understood her jumping and waving her hands. Hopefully he won't do it again! Praise God!! And you know the best part of all is this morning Brad prayed for safety for Reese (specifically) as he went to school!! God is good all the time!!! :-D
If all that isn't enough for "catch up and must do", how about this? The other day I sent a quick email out to Steve and the kids (our adult children) saying,

Just want to share my top 3 picks of the week and the week isn't over!
