The first two Beatitudes in this series were general concepts meant for any marriage, regardless of religion. This next one is slightly different. This Beatitude shows the foundation our marriages should be built on.
Blessed are they who thank God for their food and who set aside some time each day to read the Bible and [...]
These past few weeks have been slightly tumultuous in the lives of the Marshall family as we “figure out” what God has planned for our lives in the coming weeks/months/years. We have been seeking God for guidance, praying constantly, and discussing many many many different paths and options. Thankfully, in this time of stress and [...]
Recently my mom gave me a plaque that had on it the Beatitudes of a Christian Marriage. As I read through them, I realized just how true they are!! There are only four of them, & I’d like to take some time to go through each one.I hope you will join me as I work [...]
So, in April Jason and I bought our first house! Very exciting stuff… we absolutely LOVE this place!
We are still working to unpack some boxes, mostly in our spare bedroom. The other night Jason and I were trying to get organized, unpacking books and placing them on the bookshelves in the room. We were being [...]
