Titus 2 Talk

Good afternoon ladies,

I am going to be starting a video channel speaking to you about ladies things.  This has been on my heart for several years now and through prayer and through my walk with our Heavenly Father I now have confidence that this is something He would want me to do.  So many times throughout my walk with the Lord I often was finding myself asking where are the aged women who are talked about in 

Titus 2:3-5

3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

I was yearning for godly women to show me some of their secretes of homemaking, and how to present myself as God would want me to.  Sadly in this day and age I am seeing fewer and fewer women like that.  This is not to say that God didn't bring some amazing Titus 2, Proverbs 31 women my direction, but I am saying that I am not seeing as many as there once was.  So I started praying in my own life make me this Titus 2, Proverbs 31 lady.  Now is where you think I am going to say I have arrived, well I haven't so what good am I going to be then.  Well, first if someone ever tells you they have arrived at that state run do not walk but run for the door and don't look back.  We all have room to move up and that is the most wonderful part of this journey.  We are to walk in the light that God gives us and obey in that light.  Now sometimes I have to admit I have bulked, argued, and even cried to the Lord and said it's not fair, but it doesn't matter we are who God has made us to be.  So here I stand fauls and all.  I hope through this journey though we can glean from one another and learn things that the Lord would find glory in.  This is not a site to put anyone down, but it is a site to lift the Word of God up and in doing so our hearts may sometimes be pierced with the Word.  I hope you enjoy the videos that I choose to share and feel free to ask questions or comment below or on my facebook page.

Potty Pods

Today I thought I would show you this neat recipe for cleaning your toilet and deodorize it.  I will list the ingredients and the prize of them. 

You need:

1 cup of Baking Soda
1/4 cup of Citric Acid (I use Ball)
1 Tbsp dish detergent 
5 to 10 drops lemon essential oil

So for the total ingredients I paid $13.16, but it makes around 75 pods 13 each time.  Watch the video below for more information.  Enjoy!

The Blessings of Canning

This year the Lord has truly blessed our garden.  Dennis and I were talking and posed good question does it really save money, which got me to thinking what a great blog post.  First there is a cost when you are first starting, but after the first year you will have some things already for the next year.  When I was looking up some of the items you will need and I will post the cost of them here also.

The first year of canning you would need the following: (Many purchases were from Wal-mart)

a pressure cooker         $70.00
12 pc. quart jars             15.97
Pickling/Canning Salt     4.99
Canning Utensil Set       10.99

So if I were just starting out this year since I have can about 80 quarts of green beans the cost would break down like this

a pressure cooker                   $70.00
12 pc. quart jars 7 x 15.97      111.79
Pickling/Canning Salt                4.99
Canning Utensil Set                 10.99
So lets look at how much we really said.  If you go to Aldi's you are looking to spend $.48 per can of green beans.  Walmart's Great Value you are looking at $.68 per can.  It takes 2 cans to equal 1 quart. So if I have 80 quarts x 2 = 160 cans.  So Aldi's you are looking at $76.80 and $108.80 at Wal-mart. Looking at what I did this year and if it were my first year you I would not have saved money.   I would be in the hole $120.97 Aldi or $88.97 Walmart.  

BUT this was not my first year canning and I already had many of the supplies and canning jars are easy to find looking at thrift stores or I had many elderly people who had some in storage.  We had received many jars through friends.  So my cost this year looked like this.

Pickling/Canning Salt             $4.99
Lids and Rings   $5.00 x 2 = $10.00(I had some lids already so only needed 2 boxes and rings are reusable)  

I sent $14.99 in canning expenses.  Since we buy at Aldi's it would have been $76.80 and saved $61.81 

There is always a start up cost, but it pays off in the end.

Dollar Tree Make Over

Today we decided to clean out and organize the bathroom closet.  Below is the video I made about what purchased from Dollar tree and used. 

 These are the shelves in the closet and below is the new shelf paper.

How we have chosen to raised our children

Proverbs 22:6

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” 

Speaking from the point of view of a mother, since I am one.  My husband and I have chosen to raise our children from the Biblical stand point and not man's.  This means we have tried to point them back to what God says and not given them mans point of view.  We are to go to the Lord for EVERYTHING that is spelled E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.  Not some things, not for only the hard things, but everything.  Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."  So what happens when we parents die.  Well since we have taught them to go to the Lord for all your needs.  I hope they will continue to do so.  Also the bible does teach us to seek wise counselors not fools.    Now sad to say they may decide to stray and seek out foolish counselors that give them mans point of view and not God's, because I have the scars to proove what mans thinking does.  Just the thought of that breaks my heart sooo badly words will never be able to share that.  So I am learning yet again how to stand in the gap as much as the Lord allows me.  I am reminded of foolish Rehoboam in I Kings 12, who took the Council of fools.  When anyone and I mean anyone pope, king, family members, teachers, preachers, anyone teaches or advices what is not in the bible (KJV) they are in for a world of hurt.
But in training your children to always seek the Word of God and have filled there hearts with verses from the Bible.  God has a precious promise to those who have done so.
Isaiah 55:11 "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

Galatians 6:9
"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

Now my children may wonder away and may already be doing that, but there is enough of the Word of God that has been planted in them when they were younger that they won't be forgetting it.  So if I have sheltered my kids from the world and your upset about that.  If I have tried to keep them from those I thought were the wrong council tough, satan doesn't like it either and I am not worried about his feelings either.  My heart here is to pray, seek God's face and pray for my children to do the same. Oh, and the bible does say that James 5:16  "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

The hour of Christ return draws nigh.  We are closer now then ever before.  I would emplor those that are having a hard time with my children to look at the true enemy satan and to look within their own hearts and lives and see where they stand with God.  Make sure your hearts are right and that you are able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.  Cause sadly there will be soo many that cry in Matthew 7:21-23 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
