In some of our homeschool studies we came across this little gem speaking on the life of Apostle Paul. I read it to the boys a couple times.
Peter H. Davids wrote: “Paul did in the end create a revolution, not one from without, but one from within, in which a changed heart produced changed behavior and through that in the end brought about social change. This change happened wherever the kingdom of God was expressed through the church, so the world could see that faith in Christ really was a transformation of the whole person.”
Oh what a revolution/revelation/revival we need! Young people in the Christian community have to be assured in their salvation and understand what that means, study what the Bible says and how to relate it to current worldviews. They must be able to stand firm, steadfast, and to be prepared to share it with their peers. They are the next representatives of the ongoing ‘social change’ our world needs. They may encounter many a Saul that our faithful Father will turn into a Paul to perpetuate His Kingdom, if only they have the firm foundations to draw from. We can’t grow weary or faint hearted. Train them in His ways and in the end they will not depart from it.
Dear Lord, thank You for the faithful Christian parents out in the trenches today. Please lead them as they raise the next Christian generation and guide our youth to be bold and steadfast in our fallen world. I pray revival will come through them. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
I Timothy 1 12-17

I believe in the God of the Bible and that Jesus is His Son who died on the cross at Calvary for the sins of the world. This free gift is for you and for me, if we accept that fact by faith and strive daily to follow His Living Word that is the same today, yesterday, and forever.
Also, for the record, I love my boyfriend whom I have been married to for going on 18 years. We have two boys that are both in high school, which is taught at home by yours truly.
Cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, goats, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, peacocks, song birds, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, all call our yard home and I have a story about all of them.
I am originally from Kentucky, with deep roots in Eastern Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains. I grew up in a working class suburb of Lexington, Kentucky. I am married to a quiet feller from Birmingham, Alabama. We met in Tampa, FL, married, had two kids and moved to California. From there we landed in Alabama for a few years and then by the providence of God we moved to our little piece of heaven in Georgia where we live in a white house, on a little hill, in the rocky foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I have some things I think I might want to write that maybe someone might want to read... mostly stories and experiences of my own and a few I can relay from second hand knowledge but none with great confidence, pride, or true story telling ability, just overthought ramblings that I quickly need to capture before I forget.
