Your Joy in Christ Does Not Depend on What You “Accomplish” Today

Guest post by Rebeka Hargraves from Hargraves Home and Hearth. Have you ever been confronted with the sobering realization that you are thinking and living in direct contradiction to the truths of the gospel? I have.

Choosing Intentional Entertainment as a Christian Family

I am excited to share a guest post from Lyndsie Suttle at today! I grew up in a home with no television. Whenever I told people this, they were always surprised. My siblings and I weren’t completely sheltered since many of our family members had a TV, so we did watch sometimes. But it was never a form of regular… Read more


Get $10 off the 2018 Homemaking Ministries Online Conference!

I used to think that worship was mostly about seeking emotionally-connected experiences with God through reading the Bible, praying, and singing or listening to praise songs.

Help Kids Keep Their Messes Under Control: Simplify

Most days it seems that my kids leave a never-ending trail of messes as they go to and fro about the house. With three (young) children who are not very aware of the trail they’ve left behind, and one mother who is overwhelmed by the tasks of keeping order in the home and training these children to pick up after themselves,… Read more


Why Community Matters for Your Family

When my first child was born, I was consumed by the overwhelming feeling of desperation. The sleepless nights, the acid reflux, and the exhaustion all began to drain me day after day. All of the things that I didn’t know or expect as a new mom began to isolate and distance me from others. I believed the lie that I… Read more
