Mothers who feed their soul with the Word of God will thrive
as their hearts are taught by God’s wisdom.
~Gloria Furman, Treasuring Christ When Your Hands are Full, p101~
I write with the authority of a woman who has tasted
a lot of soul junk food and suffered from painful spiritual cavities.
Spiritual counsel that has “empty calories”
or is devoid of rich, biblical doctrine
cannot and will not satisfy a soul that was made to be satisfied only with an infinite God.
~Gloria Furman, Treasuring Christ When Your Hands are Full, p102~
I bet God has done something in your life
that would make our hair stand on end if you told us about it.
I bet the story God has written in your life and your home
gives voice and breath and arms and legs to the gospel
every bit as much as a church sermon ever did.
Preaching is important, certainly.
But it can’t be the only way we allow God’s story to be told in our midst.
~Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet, p238~
