God and the Sex Scandal Lineage

There is something interesting about the women/mothers mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. Tamar disguised as a prostitute to have sex with her father-in-law, Rahab was a prostitute, Ruth was a Moabite (a descendant of an incestuous relationship between Lot and his older daughter), Uriah's wife (nameless in the genealogy, her husband was killed…

AMBER Alert for a Missing Child

Last night, I received an Amber alert for a missing two year old boy. It was my first Amber alert for a missing child. My heart was grieved, and I was deeply troubled. Suddenly, I became a spiritual superwoman. My family prayed for the missing boy, that he would not be harmed. Personally, I continued…

What Christianity Means to My Family

It is interesting that I started writing this post on the 14th of May, 2019, and I am finally posting it almost seven months later. I wonder if there are other bloggers with a lot of drafted posts containing one or two sentences waiting to be completed. I am excited to complete this post today…

The Season of Joy

What a joy to see the first day in December! How did you feel when you woke up this morning? I felt like the atmosphere shifted for good, and my heart was thankful for the new season. While there have been attempts to make the Christmas season less about Jesus, it is hard to deny…

What Do Christians Owe Humanity?

Have you ever found yourself thinking or saying, "I don't owe anybody anything "? I have. The Bible says you and I owe something. We owe humanity the gift of love. Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law.…

A Father's Gift

Most parents want their children to have a better childhood, live a better life than they did, and achieve things they may not be able to achieve in their lifetime. Parenting presents us the opportunity to give our children the childhood experiences we dreamed of, and help another human avoid the costly mistakes we made.…

FIGHT with Family this Thanksgiving

Yes, you read that right. FIGHT! In a few days, we will celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. A day American families near and far gather together to celebrate life and family. It is a holiday of joy and conflict. I suggest that we do the following to position ourselves for a memorable and joyful…

Putting Family Before Work

We often say "family comes first". Yet, we find it hard to put it into practice. Sometimes, we find ourselves having to choose between work and family. Parenting makes choosing between career and family more complex. The time change or daylight savings exercabated the guilt I feel each time I pick up the little one…

7 Types of Godly Girlfriends Every Christian Woman Needs (for her journey)

Yesterday, the need for godly relationships was discussed on the blog. I piggybacked on Hasini’s post and emphasized the importance of community and asking for help. Apart from our immediate family members, our friends are often the ones we turn to in crisis. What type of friends do you have? I have friends who can shake heaven with me and tell me the truth when it is difficult to accept. Do you have such friends? In this post, Hannah Forbes-Smith asserts that every Christian woman should have friends with 7 key qualities. I agree with her propositions and I am excited to share her post with you. Enjoy and be blessed! 2 mins read.

Marked Life

Est. Read Time: 2 minutes

  1. A friend (or Spiritual Mother) who can shake the heavens in prayer – There is nothing more empowering than being able to call up your sister when you are going through spiritual warfare. I mean, a sister who knows and understands that the weapons of our warfare aren’t carnal, but mighty to the pulling down of strongholds. She knows how to pray fervently, effectively, and violently when the need arises. She is an intercessor and watchman.
  2. A friend that she can trust – This gal sees and values your triumphs and trials. Your deepest matters of the heart are safe with her. No personal agendas, or hidden motives, secret competition, or breaching confidence. What is shared stays here.
  3. A friend who doesn’t judge or condemn – This friend doesn’t make you feel worthless and without hope when you’ve tripped up. She knows that we all…

You Need Me, I Need You

We were made for relationship, fellowship, and we were born with a desire to connect with others. When the need for connection is disrupted in early childhood, the brain becomes stressed, and it rewires itself to accommodate unnatural ways of connection which impacts their relationship with others across the lifespan.

Stay at home mom-life: My Banner

“For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” (Deut 20:4, NIV) The struggle is real. It doesn’t matter if you are staying at home, or a working parent, whether you are a parent or not, the struggles become very real the moment you confess…

A Christian Mother and Wife’s Creed

Whether we desire war or not, we are constantly at war. There is a war over our lives as Christian mothers and wives. The enemy wants to divide and conquer our homes. He knows fully well that the family is the bedrock of the society. If he can destroy families, he can conquer the world.…

I Don’t Have to, I Get To

Last year, I wrote a private blog post after watching a video that heightened my sense of gratitude. Despite having a challenging week, my sense of gratitude remains intact tonight. I am very thankful for the gift of life. Life feels less overwhelming when we think positively about the things we do. Let's say 'I…

The Stay at home mom life: The Lord who sanctifies me

Being a joyful mother doesn’t mean that things will always be perfect. God knows that my family drives me crazy. There are times I want to run away and I long for things past, but God always intervene, and challenges me to get my perspective back on track. He uses the voice of my 3-year-old son, who looks me in the eye and asks me “Are you happy, mummy?”

How to Start your Day Off Right

Few hours ago, the little one woke up while I was tidying up the house and meditating on some Bible verses (Thanks to YouVersion!). The little one reached out for me to stop whatever I was doing and hold him. I complied. While sitting with him laid back against my chest, I praised God, loved…

Reflection: The Army Values

I believe the willingness of soldiers to lay down their lives for one another and their nation is due to military indoctrination (transformation of civilians to military members) and the bond formed over time. The truth is that one cannot continue to think and live like a civilian when one decides to join the military.

Two Ways to Honor Military Veterans

I will be honest that I did not join the military hoping to go to war. I am thankful I did not have to. Some of my "battle buddies" wanted to deploy and retire. I just wanted to serve and leave. While I left the military with physical injuries, others left with both physical and…

The Stay at home mom life: He is my Healer

When I had my babies, one of the hardest things for me as a mother was when they began to fall sick. By God’s grace, my children are healthy. But when they do fall sick, it often brings to my mind parents of children with serious life threatening illnesses, and disabilities, and my heartbreaks for them. The pain they go through as parents is something My God knows all too well....

The Theology of Adoption: The Needy and the Needed

There are no words to describe how excited I was to reblog this post. Robin urges Christians to think about Adoption. Since we were adopted into the family of God, we should extend the love and opportunity God has given us to children in need of a home. We can start by giving to orphanages but we can go beyond that and give those children a family, a home. James 1:27 says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Perhaps, some of us are scared to bring a child with a history of trauma into our homes. We must look beyond that and see these children how God sees them. These children can experience a new life, their stories can be re-written when love is poured into them. My dear friends, think about adoption! Enjoy Robin’s inspirational post! Stay blessed.

The wife & times of Reverend Wootton

November is National Adoption month. There has been a plethora of sources and blog posts daily on my Facebook news feed. Huffpost, among others, has been diving headfirst into the fray with their series, trying to be balanced in their opinions, but mostly being conservative, as expected. What makes me saddest, is the total lack of evangelical voices. Not the ones who like to paint everything with sugar and roses, but the ones who take a big step back. Christians MUST think about adoption. Christians, who are pursuing the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ DO think about adoption daily. Here’s some of what I mean.

If a Christian adoptee is having struggles with bitterness, chances are she has struggles with Christianity as a concept. But it probably isn’t her fault. It may be a result of poor communication from other Christians who are largely ignorant of adoption as a…

Adoption Awareness Month: My Adoption Story

My life would have been different if my grandfather and aunt did not give me the gift of opportunity. That is what children in institutions need, an opportunity to be a child, have a family, to be loved and have somewhere they too can call home.....

Persecution of the Church

Most moms would lay down their lives for their children. We have said yes to C-Section to save our babies from distress. The joy of having a newborn makes us forget the pain and risks. We can rip apart a lion, walk through fire, and rip out our hearts to save our children. You know…

Walking in Mommy’s Shoes

I looked on in amusement as my daughter slid her cute little right foot into my black ballet flats, and after countless attempts, had her first success! Her foot slid to the front of my shoe and she clack-thudded the width of our master bedroom with surprising grace. How her one foot managed to stay…
