Word for 2014 -Values


So the new year has started. 2014 is here and life goes on. What do I wish for this year? Of course better things. What kind of better things?

One thing I have come to realize is what a dear friend once told me: "The biggest room in the whole world is called Improvement." Indeed we always have so much to learn. I know I have failed in the past and I want to do better in all areas of life this year.

The starting point though for everything is our dedication to love, know and serve our God. So for this year, yet again I need to start at the start.

The issue though is how do I keep on doing what I need to be doing? I think the issue lie in a matter of values. What we value guide our action. No matter what we say, if we act a certain way it is because that is what is important to us and it shows and reveal what our values our.

So, what should my values be?:
  • My growth in love and knowledge of the Lord
  • The nurture of my relationship with my husband and my dear children
  • The education both accademic and spiritual of my children
  • My service to my church
Now if these are my values, then they will guide my priorities. In turn my priorities will guide my daily and weekly routine. So for this year I pick the word values because as want to keep these in the forefront and as a motivation of everything I will decide and dedicate my time to.
All for His glory!

Reformation Day Giveaway

We are approaching October 31, which is an important date for all protestants. This date commemorates Martin Luther’s nailing of his ninety-five theses to a church door on October 31, 1517 in Wittenburg, Germany, which in turn provoked a debate that resulted in what we now call the Protestant Reformation. As the “Father of the Reformation”, Martin Luther is a vital figure in Church History. His sacrifice and willingness to wage battle against the spiritual, religious, and political powers of his medieval world allowed Christians throughout time to embrace the following truths: salvation by grace alone , through faith alone,  and in Christ alone, along with the supremacy of Scripture, referred to as  Scripture alone, and all of it for God's Glory Alone. These being commonly called the Five Solas of the Reformation.  Danika Cooley, author and creator of the Bible curriculum Bible Road Trip ,  has recently written a book for young people recounting Luther's story:   When
