๐Ÿคณ Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, How Should Mama Look After All?

How do we treat ourselves well while also remembering that God cares more about our hearts? Can we keep our hearts pure but also enjoy fashion?
If youโ€™re like 38 percent of the population, you made a New Yearโ€™s resolution to shed a few pounds.
When it comes to body image, moms experience quite a paradox: the line between healthy self-care and vanity. For every joke about mom jeans and women becoming frumpy after becoming mothers, thereโ€™s an Instagram account from a mom who is fit and fashionable. …

๐Ÿ’ก Moving Beyond the Fairy-Tale Marriage

The divine design of marriage calls us to something deeperโ€”to Godโ€™s daily involvement. Because we canโ€™t uphold our vows without Him.
Picture me wearing Manolos.
Yep, thatโ€™s right. Bold. Modern. Romantic. I pair the gorgeous shoes with killer abs in couture gowns. My prince brings treasures from afar as little woodland creatures do my housework. Even my morning bedhead radiates beauty.
Do you ever wish married life worked like a fairy tale? Yep. Me too.
I chuckle as I write these words, …

Review commissioned by WHO says fibre in โ€˜goodโ€™ carbohydrates such as wholegrain bread and oats has protective effect.
Eating more fibre, found in wholegrain cereals, pasta and bread as well as nuts and pulses, will cut peopleโ€™s chances of heart disease and early death, according to a landmark review commissioned by the Worldย Health Organization.
The authors of the review, which will inform forthcoming WHO guidelines, say their findings are good news โ€“ but incompatible with fashionable low-carb diets. …

๐Ÿ”ฅ Truck Goes Up in Flames but Man’s Childhood Bible Inside Is Unscathed

An Oklahoma family is counting their blessings after an intense fire charred their truck โ€“ but left theirย Bibleย untouched.
And if it wasn’t for the vehicle’s horn honking, the family may have lost their house, too, which was just feet from the flames.
“I felt like crying,” Steven Gaut toldย FOX 6. The incident happened two weeks before Christmas.
But a solace in the midst of tragedy was that Gaut’s childhood Bible wasย left unscathed.
A case that was around it was charred but the Bible he had received when he was 13 was is good shape. …

๐Ÿ™ Is Prayer Your First Response?

We must train ourselves to make prayer a default reaction in all situations.
Emergency service people are calledย first responders. Their first response is to help. Police, fire fighters, and paramedics all race to respond when someone is in need. For many it comes naturally. For most, training is needed to be able to fly into action during an emergency. As a former police officer, my husband was trained to be a first responder.
As a Christian, I have a desire to speak to the Lord about things. …

๐Ÿ’ก Connecting With Your Spouse Through the Busy Parenting Years

When we became parents, our entire universe shifted. What happened to the couple we were?
Before kids, Josh and I went to movies not rated G and ate at restaurants not offering Styrofoam cups. We spent our weekends doing whatever we wanted, staying up late, and sleeping in later.
Then we became parents. And our entire universe shifted. Psychological thrillers were exchanged for films featuring talking animals. Those overpriced, chef-prepared meals turned into a quick drive-thru at Chick-fil-A. …

The first empty grave is only the first grave to empty, for on the last day all graves will be emptyโ€”those of all we mourn at Christmas who have died in Christ.
December 28 is observed by many churches as the โ€œFeast of the Holy Innocents,โ€ the young boys around Bethlehem slaughtered on the orders of King Herod, who hoped that he could destroy newly born king he had heard of from Eastern magi.

Godstrong Ministries is changing lives around the world.
Consider the following that was sent to our ministry missionaries:
โ€œI just wanted to say that your teaching has shed light on something that I was not fully aware of that was plaguing my life. I have isolated, lost passion and joy, purpose. I have not been in a church for many years and know God wants me to trust that again but not in your area so will believe for that too. …

๐Ÿ’ Prior Relationships

๐Ÿ’ Prior Relationships

Fifty percent of all families are blended familiesโ€”a marriage where one or both spouses bring children from a previous marriage or relationship.
Blended families can be incredible. I know many, many successful marriages that began this way. After all, there are a lot of great blended families in the Bible. Even Jesus came from a blended family. But they also include particular dynamics that are present from day one. These can be very challenging.
One of the most significant issues is unresolved feelings toward a past partner. …

๐Ÿ“ฑ Smartphones for Smartfamilies

We advise against giving your children a phone if you are not ready to have a conversation with them about it multiple times a week for multiple years.

When I was in high school, I was eager to turn 16 so I could drive. To my advantage, my parents were equally eager to stop being my personal Uber. So as a family we began the process of getting my driverโ€™s license.
Getting a license can be a pretty intimidating process. …

Communication in marriage is not easy. But the fight to communicate is worth the work. In the end, youโ€™ll find a thriving marriage rooted in oneness, not division.
Men and women communicate very differently. Most of us know that, but we often donโ€™t know how to overcome those barriers with our spouse. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to communication that will work for every couple, but there are some tips that can help you communicate better to move through conflict with your spouse, …

I love Christmas shopping. Iโ€™ll spend weeks before the big day searching for the right gift that conveys just what that particular person means to me or our family. Nothing elaborate or overly expensive but something that is practical and comes from the heart.

I donโ€™t know about you, but Iโ€™m ready to focus on hope.
Endless headlines bombard us with people and policies that seemingly want to remove Christ from our nationโ€™s DNA. Without hope, it can seem our foundation is starting to shake.
But this Christmas, I am clinging to Isaiah 54:10 that reminds us,ย โ€œThough the mountainsย beย shaken and the hillsย beย removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” …
