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."

We began praying for Dottie several weeks ago!

Really praying!

Matthew 5:7

Blessed are the merciful,

for they will be shown mercy.


I know of no one who is more merciful than our sweet sister-in-Christ, Dottie. She looks out for those who are hurting. She is the eyes and ears for many people who are in need. I've just known Dottie since June of 2007. In that time, I've witnessed the heart of Jesus. She emulates the beatitudes that we've talked about, so far this year, on this blog:

  • BLESSED are the poor in spirit... (It's not about her; it's about God!)

  • BLESSED are those who mourn... (She has a deep sorrow for the lost state of mankind.)

  • BLESSED are the meek... (Her gentle spirit is willing to be led.)...

  • BLESSED are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness... (Dottie is a seeker of Jesus... He is her Righteousness... her Living Water!)

  • BLESSED are the merciful... (Compassion and mercy are Dottie's middle names!)

Because of Jesus, we are family!


Jesus, because of You and through You, we know our prayers are heard ... our merciful sister-in-Christ, Dottie, needs mercy! You have heard her prayers. You know her deepest desires. You know more about that tumor at sits on her carotid artery better than anyone. We are petitioning You to heal her. Here are our requests:

  • that the tumor shrinks before she sees the vascular surgeon

  • that from now until her surgery in about 6 weeks - that it will either not be necessary or amazingly successful

  • that Dottie and her entire family will see God’s loving hand in all of this

We have committed to talk to You about this daily. Please hear our prayers! Father God have mercy! Christ intercede with mercy! Holy Spirit comfort!

Today is a day that people call April Fool's day. Today is the day a bunch of FOOLS FOR CHRIST begin to keep Dottie before Your throne.... I am confident that many more will add there names in the coming days...
