Women Living Well Book Study

Last October I took part in on an online Bible study that truly changed my life.  The study was based on the book “A Confident Heart” by Renee Swope.  Through that Bible study I discovered several awesomely inspiring women bloggers, one of which was Courtney Joseph from Women Living Well.

At this time, Courtney was very close to the launch date of her new book, also entitled Women Living Well.  I downloaded the book after finishing the online Bible study and immediately dove in.  Who was this woman that had the exact same thoughts as me?  To say I agree with Courtney’s views on Biblical living would be a vast understatement.  In “Women Living Well” Courtney discusses topics such as our husband’s being the head of the household, a hot topic after the release of (and subsequent interviews regarding) Candace Cameron Bure ‘s new book (whom I also love and entirely agree with and support). 

Other topics include ideas on daily Bible time, the effects of social media in marriage, parenting and more.  I am very excited to begin working through this book as a full-blown study, rather than a simple reading of ideas.  Will you join me?

First, pick up a  copy of Courtney Joseph’s book, “Women Living Well:  Finding Your Joy in God, Your Man, Your Kids and Your Home.”  It is available at most major book retailers, as well as in many ebook formats. Next, follow this 8 week reading plan:   (click to enlarge).

Then, simply join in the discussion over on Courtney’s book club blog page and be sure to check back here for my insight as well.  I pray this study will impact your life in the days to come!

Building Grandma’s House

Picture your grandma’s house as a kid.  Was it quiet?  Was it calm and peaceful?  Was it well-kept?   Did your grandma seem rushed to get from here to there?  Did she seem in a hurry to finish the next thing on her to-do list? Did she cook dinner (and maybe even breakfast and lunch) every day? Did she work outside the home?

 Now picture your own house.  Is it peaceful or chaotic?  Is it well-kept or does the clutter cause you stress?  Are you constantly feeling rushed and in a hurry to finish the never ending to-do list?  Do you want to cook better meals for your family but still find yourself hitting the drive thru most nights?  Do you work outside the home but feel guilty about time lost with your kids?  Or, do you stay home with your kids but feel like you’re wasting your college degree or loosing momentum in the workforce?  Do you wish things would slow down just a little so you could enjoy life with your kids and family?

 Join me as we use God’s word to discover how we really can, and should, slow down, eliminate distractions and build homes that are loving, peaceful and maybe even old-fashioned.  Join me as we build homes like Grandma had.
