Balance for Woman who is a Wife and Mother?

A woman seeking to balance family and work values has expressed her sense of personal mission

 I will seek to balance career and family as best I can since both are important to me.
 My home will be a place where I and my family, friends, and guests find joy, comfort, peace, and
happiness. Still I will seek to create a clean and orderly environment, yet livable and comfortable. I
will exercise wisdom in what we choose to eat, read, see, and do at home. I especially want to teach
my children to love, to learn, and to laugh -- and to work and develop their unique talents.

I value the rights, freedoms, and responsibilities of our democratic society. I will be a concerned
and informed citizen, involved in the political process to ensure my voice is heard and my vote is

I will be a self-starting individual who exercises initiative in accomplishing my life's goals. I will
act on situations and opportunities, rather than to be acted upon.

I will always try to keep myself free from addictive and destructive habits. I will develop habits
that free me from old labels and limits and expand my capabilities and choices.

My money will be my servant, not my master. I will seek financial independence over time. My
wants will be subject to my needs and my means. Except for long-term home and car loans, I will seek to keep myself free from consumer debt. I will spend less than I earn and regularly save or invest part of my income.

Moreover, I will use what money and talents I have to make life more enjoyable for others through
service and charitable giving.


New Testament Church?

A church fed on excitement is no new testament church at all. The desire for surface stimulation is a sure mark of the fallen nature, the very think Christ died to deliver us from. ~ A.W. Tozer

I Surrender All

"The righteousness God seeks is a persistent righteousness, a commitment to continue making the right decision even when, perhaps hourly, you feel pulled in the opposite direction. Holiness is far more than an inclination toward occasional acts of kindness and charity. It is a commitment to persistent surrender before God." ~ Gary Thomas

How Should You Live?

“One moment after men die, they know exactly how they should have lived. But then it is too late to go back and live their lives over again. Too late for the unbeliever, in the jaws of hell. But also too late for the believer, who cannot relive his life, remake his choices, this time following his King more faithfully.” 

~ Randy Alcorn (Safely Home)

The Secret Place

When we live in the secret place it becomes impossible for us to doubt God, we become more sure of Him than anything else. ~ Oswald Chambers
