Relatively Speaking and more...



Relatively Speaking

Relatively Speaking reminds us of the eternal rewards of inviting others around our family table and into our lives. Here's one woman's story. #WomenLivingWell #family #books #KarenEhman

I am so excited to have a guest with us today!  This guest is my dear friend and very talented New York Times Best Selling Author – Karen Ehman!  She is not just an amazing writer and speaker but she lives out what she writes. She is a close friend who sends care packages, listens for hours on the phone, gives good advice and mentors me in my writing style.  {She tells me I use too many exclamation points. 🙂 Lol!!!!!!!!}. We also have had lots of fun on many trips over the years, like the one pictured above where we got away – just the two of us – to Put-In-Bay.  I talked her ear off that weekend, about all of my life’s troubles and she listened and listened and listened and gave me wonderful words of wisdom and encouragement.

Introducing the 11th Annual Making Your Home a Haven Bible Study

Welcome to the 11th Annual Making Your Home a Haven Bible Study!  11 years ago, we began this series and never could I have imagined how much it would resonate with so many women around the world!

Our souls desperately need a deeper connection with God.

So many times we try to mask our struggles, pain, confusion or emptiness by keeping busy and distracted, eating food, going on vacations, seeking success or elevating certain relationships. While many of these things are blessings from God, they are not good substitutes FOR God.

This Bible Study is going to help you slow down.

It is going to force you to pause every day and enter into the presence of our Almighty God.

God’s pace is much slower than this world’s pace.

We must slow down to catch up with God.

We must create calm moments in our day because it’s in the unhurried moments, that we can clearly see and hear the voice of God.
