What Inspired Me to Start Blogging

After graduating from the Moody Bible Institute with a Bachelor of Arts Degree – I got married and led women’s Bible studies, Workshops, Retreats and mentorships in my church. Then I had children and found balancing my ministry outside the home and my children in the home to be difficult. So I began http://www.womenlivingwell.org to bring my ministry home.

How Faith Inspires How I Raise My Children

My husband and I’s faith is the foundation of our individual lives, our marriage and our home. We read God’s word daily together, pray together, attend church together and serve together. I am reminded that God was the perfect father and he placed Adam and Eve in the perfect environment (the garden of Eden) and yet Adam and Eve rebelled. We are not in control of how our children respond to God’s word but we are responsible to obey God’s word and teach it to our children. Lisa Whelchel says “If I were the perfect parent, my children would have no need for God.” I want my children to know that though I am not always with them – Jesus is – and he loves them – and they need his saving grace.
