My guest this week is Bethany McDonald, wife and mom of two girls. Bethany recently wrote a post on Facebook that went "viral." She titled her post, "You can pour from an empty cup." This post caused quite the stir amongst fellow mamas. Our culture highly encourages mothers to "pour" into themselves first, so that then they will be able to "pour" i…
 
My hope today is to encourage some of you homemakers who feel overwhelmed when it comes to the care of your home. I'm still a learner even after 35 years and I hope you will always consider yourselves learners. What I'm sharing with you are tasks and routines that have worked well for me over the years so don't feel you need to put in place each on…

As Christian homemakers, it can be challenging to keep a tidy home while juggling homeschooling, cooking meals three times a day, keeping up with the laundry and running to the grocery store. In today's interview, we chat with blogger, author, speaker and decluttering expert, Dana K. White. You probably know her from her blog A Slob Comes Clean and…
 
In this next episode of the Sermon on the Mount, we start with two common pictures we're all familiar with from everyday life. No matter your location in the world—you know what salt and light are. We are to be salt, and we are to be light or better to state as the scripture states - we ARE salt, and we ARE light. We're going to take these one at a…
 
My guest this week is Elizabeth Prata and we are discussing whether or not God speaks to us audibly.

Self-pity is a selfish tendency that takes our eyes off Christ and puts them on ourselves. We forget “God works all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.” Are we able to give God “thanks in all things”? Faith on Trial: Psalm 73 by Martyn Lloyd Jones The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace Full Show Notes…
 
Time management. It's one of the crucial ingredients in Biblical home management.

As we hunger and thirst for righteousness, it will lead us to be persecuted for righteousness' sake. A true Christian will suffer persecution in one form or another. Today we are on the eighth beatitude in Matthew 5:10-12: 10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 "Blessed are you when…
 
As Christian homemakers, we adorn the gospel by caring for our homes and families well. This is the responsibility we've been given as women. This is the primary place where our ministry takes place. How can we honor God in these roles that He's placed us in? One way is by learning practical ways to manage our homes. And that is just what this podc…
 
Nothing will divide women more than the working moms/stay-at-home mom debate. So, as a Christian woman, I want to be completely upfront and forthcoming here and say, "I do not desire to cause division within the body of Christ." PLEASE, if you listen to this podcast episode, go into it realizing this is the true-life story of one woman. This is the…
 
We all know the books we read shape us and grow us. Besides benefits like increasing our vocabulary and sharpening our brains, books also teach us, challenge us and bring us comfort. Many benefits are waiting for you as you take the time to pick up a good book. We all have an ever-growing list of books we'd like to read each year. I'm sharing a few…
 
If I could sit with you and talk about life, would you say you feel inadequate in certain areas? Maybe even admit that you don't feel like you are doing enough? Those feelings and negative thoughts wear us down. After a while of hearing "What do you do all day?" and "You're not doing enough," we may actually start to believe it. But let me encourag…
 
To be a peacemaker we need to be at peace with God. It starts here. We must no longer be God's enemy.

There is a book that has been a comfort to me in my walk with the Lord as I parent a prodigal by Ruth Bell Graham called Prodigals and Those Who Love Them: Words of Encouragement For Those Who Wait. Waiting on a prodigal is hard, and this isn't a how-to book but a book of prayers and promises and meditations in the Word for troubled hearts. Her rem…

The gift of physical sight is wonderful. Yet we are talking today about a seeing that surpasses that of even someone being blind and seeing for the first time. We are going to see God. Today we are on the sixth beatitude in Matthew 5:8: Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. HELPFUL LINKS: Head over to ThankfulHomemaker.com for full…

I love reading Paul's prison prayers (Ephesians 1:15-23, 3:14-21; Philippians 1:9-11, Colossians 1:9-12) because we see the heart of what the apostle desired for us. Amid this trial, Paul didn't pray the believers in Ephesus or Philippi would live their best life now. He didn't pray for material blessings, but his focus was on the spiritual and the…

We're getting ready to turn the calendar and on most of our lists or resolutions is to start a daily Bible reading habit. This is a good thing. What better discipline to develop as a believer than to desire to sit at the feet of Jesus daily and hear from Him through His Word and for us to speak to Him through prayer Full Show Notes at Thankful Home…
 
As I've been reading in Isaiah, it has struck me how often God is not the first place I turn to when I need help. I may look to myself, my husband, or a friend, and although those aren't necessarily bad things it isn't where I should be turning to first. Isaiah 9:6: For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon h…
 
One of the aspects of the life of Christ that stands out to me is that Jesus never seemed to be in a hurry. Even when crowds of people surrounded him he always made time for what was most important—time with His Father. Luke 5:15-16: 15 But now even more the report about him went abroad, and great crowds gathered to hear him and to be healed of the…

We all know what it feels like at times to be hungry or thirsty, but there are a hunger and thirst that should be far more concerning to us that we are going to dig into together today, and it’s not talking about physical hunger but spiritual hunger. It’s a hunger that will not be satisfied by food or water but only by God. Augustine said: "Thou ha…
 
Meekness is often defined as power under control, and in the case of the Spirit-filled believer, he or she is under the control of God's Spirit. Meekness towards God is a disposition of spirit that accepts His dealings as good and doesn't dispute or resist them. Listen in as we continue on in our series through the Sermon on the Mount - working thr…
