The Kingdom-Driven Family

Building a Home That Serves Christ and His Kingdom

  I conduct classes in Biblical law for women. Over the course of almost two decades, I have moderated discussions on the specifics of the Ten Commandments, the case laws of the Old Testament, and their applicability for today. It is not that men would not or could not benefit from these classes. It is …

Education is often confused with schooling. They are not the same things. Too many people go through twelve-plus years of schooling and fail to be useful to those in their family, social circles, or  jobs.

On my way to the Farmers Market today, I was happily listening and singing along with Judy Roger’s CD Never Be Shaken, a collection of Psalms put to music.  The title song is taken from Psalm 112 and the lyrics include a list of those who will never be shaken.  It goes, Who may dwell, …
