A “New” Approach to Life!

During the Wilkes’ stay at our house last weekend we watched the Advanced Seminar with them. It was a very encouraging time for both our families. The wealth of information presented by Dr. Gothard and several other speakers prompted many insightful discussions during the breaks between each video. Donald and Dad put many hours into planning […]

Visit From Virginia

Last week some friends from Virginia, the Wilkes, came. One of my favorite things was playing basketball knock out. Even though it was hard to win, everybody was a good sport and we all had a good time. The Wilkes’ are also getting bees! So Michael taught them all about bee keeping. God blessed us with […]

Bee Analogy

Well, the crocuses bloomed last week! With joy we watched the honeybees crawl in and out of the colorful blooms. A day earlier, Michael and I had gone to the Beekeepers’ Meeting. That week the speaker was Harold Miller—a weathered mountaineer “who lives in his bee yard”. Between giving tips and answering questions, he mentioned something to beware of: something that […]

Tapping into God’s Creation

The end of winter tends to be a barren time of year. Gardens are in the planning and planting stage. Most of the stored provisions from the previous year’s harvest are getting low. But even though the grass is brown and the trees still bear, there is a harvest to be reaped hidden deep in […]

A paragraph from Washington

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious […]

Bringing Health to the Hurting

I enjoyed spending this past week at the Indianapolis Training Center, helping Mr. Gothard and Dr. Paine as they hosted a Total Health Seminar. Even though the dates of the seminar were only finalized a few weeks in advance, a remarkable number of attendees showed up to learn how to identify the root causes of […]

God Comforteth

In the year 2002 my son Robert gave Don and I a book for Christmas entitled “Morning by Morning” by Charles Spurgeon. Finally last year, 2006, I decided to read this devotional guide.There was a paragraph for each day of the year with a very short, very uncommon scripture text. I found each paragraph to […]


Do you know the feeling you have when you find something that you have been looking for? An item you’ve lost, a certain book at the library, a puzzle piece that you’ve been searching and searching for? The Lord wants us to experience this feeling of discovery in a new way every morning! This is […]

A Different Perspective

God distinctly declares that His ways are not our ways. He also declares that His ways are higher than our ways. (Isaiah 55:8-9) When I submit my will to His will, I die to my own ways and thus become able to follow His higher ways. This is where creativity starts! Instead of looking at […]
