By: Erin BishopWe talk a lot about our daughters’ smart phone and social media usage, but I don’t think we talk nearly enough about ours, and how it impacts our families.I was shocked when I read that the average adult spends nearly 3 hours per day on their phone. That is almost a full day each week, almost 4 days a month, and almost 48 days or over a month and a half every year. Those who have used social media since the birth of their children … [Read more...] about Is Our Social Media Usage Harming Our Families?
A new school year is about to start (or already has, depending on where you live) and that often means a shopping trip for some new school clothes for our daughters. A few years ago, my daughter and I made a list of what she needed, discussed our budget, and found common ground between her styles and my “mom clothes rules” and were ready to go. We got jeans, shirts, socks, shoes, and undergarments, and by the night before school she had washed … [Read more...] about 9 Back to School Essentials for Teen Girls

Do I look like the world instead of looking like God? But before we keep going; what is the status quo? From my perspective, it’s being accepting of anything as long as it doesn’t … [Read more...] about Ditching the Status Quo
By RhemaToday I’m going to share my testimony with you guys. I have gone to church my whole life. My dad is a pastor, and my mom is a volunteer at my church, so going to church for two services every Sunday is my normal. I have always loved God and my church.

I had fear … [Read more...] about Fear: How God Set Me Free
Psalm 27:17 (ESV) “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” Godly relationships are important so we can always have someone who can encourage, uplift and correct us. We need godly influences in our lives because the world is not going to do anything to help us.
