It is GOD who BLESSES and TRANSFORMS...

This is a blog for women 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..

Once in a while I take a hiatus from writing, but I have begun again on Easter Sunday 2013. Usually, there will be multiple blog postings each week. You are invited to use it as part of your daily quiet time. Topics may run for several months at a time. The current topic is posted over on the right side bar. Each week, I will try to connect to a song or two that goes with our current topic.

Each day of the week follows a special format: Sunday in the Son; Meditation Monday; GratiTuesday; Women in the Word Wednesday; Transforming Thursday; Family Fellowship Friday; and, 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,

TRANSFORMED MOMS:MOMS TRANSFORMED

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."

SO LONG SELF... WOMEN IN THE WORD WEDNESDAY...

True love is selfless...True LOVE is Jesus... it's called "agape".
Thank You, Jesus, for teaching us how to truly AGAPE LOVE.

Love J esus (first)

Love O thers (your closest other is your spouse and then children)
Love Y ourself (this is a healthy God-filled love that helps you love others better)


1 Corinthians 13:4-13 articulates what this AGAPE LOVE looks like.  Today, I use these verses like I did yesterday, except this time let's change the focus a little bit.  Ask yourself this: 

IS IT HARD FOR YOU TO LOVE OTHERS WHEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A HEALTHY AGAPE LOVE FOR YOURSELF?

J esus (my LORD and Savior)
O thers (specifically, my best friend husband, Steve)
Y ourself (that means me!)

"My love for me is patient,
My love for me is kind and is not jealous;
My love for me does not brag and is not arrogant,
My love for me does not act unbecomingly;
My love for me does not seek my own selfish want,
My love for me is not provoked,
My love for me does not take into account a wrong suffered,
My love for me does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
My love for me bears all things,
My love for me believes all things,
My love for me hopes all things,
My love for me endures all things.
This agape love never fails...


...But now faith, hope, agape love, abide, these three; but the greatest of these is AGAPE LOVE."


The cross of Jesus is the key to opening my heart and your heart to AGAPE LOVE...



~OH, THE JOY!~
