Quote of the Week



“A pure heart is a garden void of rocks and weeds. It’s a heart unaffected by anger, resentment, and doubt. It’s loving someone with only the best of intentions.
Those who seek a pure heart make every effort to protect the heart from impurities by keeping their thoughts in check, because they know that a garden with weeds has the potential to get out of control.”
Time-Warp Wife


The Bookshelf  

Yes, we’ve featured this book before, but we’ve recently picked this book back up and were reminded just how good it was 😉   Not only do the Botkin sisters have a fun sense of humor (they had us laughing several times), they help girls put guys into proper perspective and encourage and show us how to treat them as our brothers in Christ.


Videos of the Week  

The Josties make some of our favorite videos 😀  If you’ve never seen their “Martha Mahinski’ and ‘Man Vs.’ videos, be sure to go look them up on their YouTube channel :here: 😀  In this video Martha and Leroy meet each other in an elevator.  It’s hilarious 😀

This makes us smile (and cry a little!).  Jesus IS always with you 🙂

 Featured Blog


Bri at In Single Shoes has a such a neat blog full of encouragement 🙂   We’ve copied some of the quotes from her latest post, A Faith View to share the encouragement…but do click through for more!

“Faith is…”

“Remembering that in the kingdom of God
EVERYTHING is based on promise
and not feeling.”

“Realizing that what God is going to do
will be on the basis of
a miracle, not manpower;
not my goodness.”

“Not related to my believing
hard enough,
nor my emotional exhilaration
or flatness,
but rests on what God
in His Word.”

“Taking my eyes off my good self,
or my bad self,
or my wounded self,
and keeping them on Himself.”

Quotes from a book called ‘Faith Is’ by Pamela Reeve


Cute Quotes


One day Bekah and Charissa were talking about a friend’s half bathroom that is very tiny, and about how this person liked it and this person didn’t. Charissa told Bekah she thought they didn’t like it because they felt ‘flabbergasted’ in it [she meant claustrophobic].  😀



Another night some of us girls were discussing a problem we had and Noah was standing there listening to us, and then he said, “Well you don’t need to worry about it!” when Susannah was going on about her ‘woes’ 😀

Cassia said, “Listen!  From the mouth of a man!”  whereupon Leah asked Noah if he was a man (expecting him to say no, he was a boy).  Without any hesitation Noah replied, “Uh, YEAH!” in a ‘can’t you see the obvious?!’ tone of voice 😀   When we all burst out laughing he said that, well,  he was a boy.



One day Graham, a little boy we babysit, was helping Bekah with supper preparation and they were cutting up broccoli.  Graham (who is 3 years old) said, “This is awesome, huh?!”   Usually we give him the kids safety knife, but this time we gave him a serrated knife to use.  As he was cutting the broccoli he noticed the difference and exclaimed, “I’m cutting it for real!  Not for fake!”


Isaiah to Charissa:  “Do you want another brother baby, or a sister baby?”
