Don't you want a crazy love?

I have thought about doing this. For longer than I should have.  I have tried participating in online Bible studies. I have commitment issues.  I have tried "facilitating" orchestrated online Bible studies. I failed.  So Lord why do you keep placing the desire on my heart to lead an online Bible study here at The Virtuous Home?  I doubt myself. I won't finish.  I start out committed. I don't finish.

A year later and there is still a whisper telling me to do.  Not enough people read my blog. Who will it reach?  I don't want to start something I won't finish.

You need to start and finish.

So here I am.  After about a year of going back and forth with myself about whether I am worthy enough to attempt to lead an online Bible study here at The Virtuous Home and God has consistently, persistently, told be me to obey.

I am obeying.

I am excited.

I am scared.

I am humbled.

I am grateful.

I grew up in a small, southern baptist church in Alamogordo, NM.  Every Wednesday evening we had Bible study and prayer service.  To this day, my beautiful 81 year old Granny makes her way to the church house on Wednesday evenings for Bible study and prayer meeting.  So going along with my roots - I decided it would be great to post each Wednesday for a weekly study.

Here is the way I will kick this off.  The first book I will be using is Crazy Love, by Francis Chan.  I started reading this book about a year ago but I wasn't ready.  You know when something is calling you deeper and you don't want to go there?  I tend to just set it aside when this happens.  That is exactly what I did.

My study tools: Ipad, journal, Bible, notecards, pen, and notebook.
I am in love with this book, but even greater than that, I am in love with the God this book challenges us to fall crazy in love with, for.  I am ready for that kind of crazy love.

Even if you aren't ready to dive into a full out Bible study, I pray these posts bless you right when and where you need it.

I love you.

This week's verse to walk out.  Why just memorize it if you're not going to live it?

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
