    Monthly Scripture Writing Challenge: Love & Marriage

    Marriage is not a topic I have written a whole lot about, if you compare the amount of times I write about marriage versus the times I write about parenting you’ll see parenting is a much more written about topic. That’s not because I prefer parenting over marriage but because marriage has been quite easy compared to parenting and I guess I generally write about hard things (case in point). I thought I would change things up during the month of February and share a little about marriage, I currently have zero specific ideas on this so hopefully some come to me. But I am going to kick things off…

    Monthly Scripture Writing Challenge: Generosity

    I started the practice of trying to write a verse or few verses from the Bible back in July and it is a practice I want to try to continue in 2020. I haven’t been successful every day (especially this last month where I missed more days than I actually completed) but I want to keep trying. For the foreseeable future I plan on continuing to make my own monthly Scripture Writing Challenges. This month the theme is generosity. A topic I will be writing about more in the next little bit. I also have ideas for the next two months as well, February will probably be love and then for March I…

    Monthly Scripture Writing Challenge: Advent

    I am really excited that it is finally time to share the Advent Scripture Writing Challenge! To be honest, I’ve never really done much in the way of Advent devotionals either on my own or with my kids and I want to change that this year, starting with this challenge. I purposefully made the passages short (or broke them up over a number of days if they were longer) because I also want my kids to copy at least some of the verses. You can see all my Scripture Writing Challenges here. Remember, don’t get hung up if you miss a day, don’t focus on the missed days, focus on…

    Monthly Scripture Writing Challenge: Orphan Care

    With November being Adoption Awareness Month and Ephraim’s adoption anniversary it seems like the perfect month for an orphan care Scripture writing challenge. I don’t think that every Christian needs to adopt or foster (but I’m not opposed to the idea either!) but we are all called to help the fatherless and needy. You’ll notice that the verses for this challenge are not all orphan specific, there are a lot of verses about doing good that don’t specifically point out orphan care. It plainly says in the Bible that people will know we are Christians by the way we treat those around us and one of the ways we can do…

    Monthly Scripture Writing Challenge: Thankfulness

    October is right around the corner and I’m a little ahead of the game this month with the Scripture writing challenge. Like I mentioned last month the theme for October is Thankfulness. I’ll speak for myself here: I am a selfish, greedy person. If I’m not careful I can easily forget that everything I have is thanks to God. It can be all too easy to get into the entitlement trap and think that I deserve what I have (the good stuff of course). But that isn’t how things work. I need to remember that and come to God with a humble heart and with thanksgiving. And since Canadian Thanksgiving…

    The Benefits of Writing Out the Scriptures

    I recently shared that I have been taking each day to participate in a Scripture writing plan. It’s not the first time I have done so but this is the first time I have continued with such dedication and over the last few months I have seen some great benefits of writing out the Bible and because I think it could be a benefit to every believer to do so I wanted to take a few minutes to share some of the benefits of writing out the Scriptures.   TWO WAYS I WRITE OUT THE SCRIPTURES But first I wanted to share two different ways I tend to write out…
