Spiritual Remodeling

Get Closer To Jesus TODAY!

    What if I told you that you could get closer to Jesus today–in one moment even, and in that singular moment massive changes in your life could occur. Would you believe me? Would you label it as ‘hype.’ Would it make your heart beat faster because this is what you have been longing for?      We have all heard it said that change doesn’t happen overnight. Decisions on the other hand, they happen instantaneously. It is this ‘instantaneous’ thought that I would like to explore and apply to our spiritual endeavors. Since decisions happen in an instant,… 

How To Have True Intimacy In Your Marriage

  Do you desire to have true intimacy in your marriage? Do you ever feel disconnected from your husband? I know I have on many occasions—sometimes even for months at a time. In fact, things got so bad between us that as I look back, I think we were literally on our last leg—one small step away from the bottomless cliff. I shutter to think of it. Our marriage became a miserable institution, both parties feeling cold and lonely. Of course we wanted things to be better between us. We wanted true and lasting intimacy. We wanted a happy and…

Submission STINKS!

Why is submitting to those in authority over us SO STINKEEING HARD TO DO? Sometimes, while I am in the middle of a submission power struggle, I like to fantasize about something that is a little less hard to endure—bamboo shoots being forced under my fingernails. No question about it—submission is hard to do! But why?   I am not a naturally tough minded woman. My will resembles more of a marshmallow mountain. I cave in easy. (My mom: “DO you care for some cake Mary Kette?” (She calls me that). Me: “Oh no, I really shouldn’t…..ok….But just one piece… 

How to Show Respect to Your Husband….Even if He Hasn’t Earned It.

  Showing respect when that person has lost yours, is hard to do. When we as wives withhold respect from our husbands—it is as if a gulf suddenly opens up between us and our man. A gulf that is wide and chalk-full of alligators, snakes, zombies, molten lava, and anything else horrible and scary. Bottom line—the gulf is uncrossable. Even if the disrespect has not been spoken aloud, men have this built in bat-radar that can pick up disrespect like a bat can hear a gnats wing flutter. Crazy uncanny and sensitive. And the truth is, we as women can… 

Use My Hammer For Construction Not Destruction

  With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? Can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. (James 3: 9–12 NIV) Out of sheer boredom and for entertainment’s sake, our crew and I have names for many of our tools. The tall wooden ladder is…
