Light in the Dark -- Minutes with Marie

Very early this morning I was sitting in the dark, looking out the window at the clouds in the predawn sky. Because of the thick clouds, only a tiny spot of orange shone from the sun about to rise. It was such a small bit of orange, but it refreshed my weary heart. As I gazed at that bit of light, I...

How to Plan for Rest in Your Homeschool

God's perfect plan includes time for work and time for rest. As homeschoolers, how can we intentionally plan for rest? (I've posted this in July for several years now, and I hope it helps bring rest to your family!) I have something for you to try -- a new school schedule! It’s a bit unusual but it’...

"Gospel" is an unusual word - Minutes with Marie

“Gospel” is an unusual word. People rarely use it in ordinary, day-to-day conversation. And exactly what does it mean? “Gospel” means “good news.” But what is the good news? The long-awaited event has occurred. The King of the Universe has come. The King of kings came to Earth to rescue ME from the ...

Mercy -- Minutes with Marie

I sometimes hear that the God of the Old Testament is a hard, unforgiving God, and that mercy begins in the New Testament. I disagree. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Consider Aaron.
