Developing Daughters for the King

Developing Daughters for the King – Psalm 45:13
Musings from Grandma
Bertha High – March 17, 1992

Psalm 45:13 “The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.”

I am thankful for the godly heritage God has given me. As I was meditating on the subject, my mind took me back to the three dear women who had a part in molding my life for the Lord.

Can My Family Tell I Have Been with Jesus?

Can My Family Tell I Have Been With Jesus?
Homebuilders March 29, 2006 - Martha Burkholder

The title assumes the fact that I am spending time with Jesus. It will be evident if this is not happening. When things run smoothly we're OK, but let something come in unexpectedly - how do we respond?

God wants us to seek His face. Deut. 4:29 has a promise for seeking His face. In Heb.11:6 there is a reward to those who diligently seek God's face.

Respect For Others

Heb. 13:18 Pray for us for we trust we have a goad conscience in all things willing to live honestly.
Heb. 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water.

Bonding in Love By Caring and Sharing

Rachael Martin April 9, 2003

I would like to start with the Golden Rule. It reads like this, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." To bring this even closer to today's subject, it could read like this, "Talk about others as you would have them talk about you." This is very basic and yet it is the foundation of our relationships with others. If you are always criticizing and finding fault with others, people are probably going to have a hard time finding something good in your life.

A Woman’s Role in the Great Commission

A Woman’s Role in the Great Commission October 22, 2003
Go ye therefore and teach all nations Matt. 28:19

When asked to do this topic my first thought was, “Why ask me, I've never been to N.Y. for Jesus, Honduras or even a book convention?” But I was told the committee wasn't looking for someone that did all that - but rather “that this topic be an encouragement for mothers in the ‘little contacts of life’ that might make a difference.”

A Woman’s Personal Devotional Life

March 26, 2002
...in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength..."
Isaiah 30:15

Isn't it humbling to think that the Supreme Being Who created the heavens and earth, our great, infinite God, made us finite creatures of dust and desires our fellowship?

Do we realize what a wonderful privilege we have to be able to communicate with our Maker, Redeemer and Lord?

My Place In God's Kingdom

April 1, 1975
My Place in God’s Kingdom
They asked me to direct this to mothers tonight and also to witnessing in the community. Descriptors given to be used are Psalms 118:5 and Ecclesiastes 11:1-6. Psalm 118:5 is “I called upon the Lord in distress. The Lord answered me and sent me a large place.” This is a very appropriate verse or mothers. The first part is “I call upon the Lord in distress.”Is there a mother here tonight that never becomes distressed or feels that she is so tied down with her family that there is no time to help others or to witness for the Lord?

Joyfully Accepting the Sacrifices of Motherhood

Joyfully Accepting the Sacrifices of Motherhood

Occupation - Housewife
What am I doing with my life?
Well - I am only a housewife.

I'm a homework helper, expert on spelling,
The keeper of secrets without telling.
A Band-Aider, a hurt-feeling mender,
A peanut butter and jelly vendor.

I'm a bed maker, laundry supervisor,
Child disciplinarian, a chastiser.
A thermometer reader, cookie baker,
A spring planter - weeder, a fall leaf raker.
