Are you a Goat or a Sheep?

Christian Devotion Christian mom Following Jesus Jesus the Shepherd John 10:10 Matthew 25 Psalm 23

Are you a Goat or a Sheep?

By Stephanie Parker My husband, Brett, has a new obsession: Goats. We recently moved to the country. My husband thought he’d commemorate this life event with livestock. Brett knew NOTHING about goats nor was he raised near any farm animal to speak of, but that didn’t stop him. We now have 50 chickens, 7 cows, 17 goats and a pig named, “Crispy Bacon.” Out of all of our newly acquired livestock, the goats are the apple of my husband’s eye. He is quickly becoming familiar with ‘goat lingo.’ And yes… there is such a thing as ‘goat lingo!’ He is...

The Power Source of God

Thank God for Google! Seriously! I am pretty terrible about memorizing references of the Bible verses I memorize. I don’t seem to have problem committing to memory the words of the verses but, for the life of me, I can’t ever remember the numbers that go with them! When I am writing a devotional and the Holy Spirit brings a verse to mind, I can’t tell you how many times I go to Google to remind me where exactly it’s found in the Bible. No one can tell me that God can’t use Google for His glory!  The other day...

The Truth and God's Word

By Stephanie Parker This post is for anyone that’s ever questioned the validity or authenticity of the Bible… or for those that believe in God but aren’t too sure about the Bible actually being God’s Word. When I was 22, I went skydiving. Did you know that the average human body falls from the sky at 120 miles per hour and a skydiver typically jumps from between 11,000-14,000 feet off of the ground? I learned this AFTER I paid for my dive and signed my life away. Before we jumped, we had to take a class that explained the ins...

Resting in the Lord

Resting in the Lord

By Stephanie Parker I was swimming laps in the pool today and decided to take a little break. I filled my lungs with air and rose to the surface of the water and rested. I’ve always loved to float. Something about defying gravity I think, or maybe it’s the ability to shut out all the noise in life and simply focus on my breathing. It calms my mind. But resting in the water is a very active and intentional thing. You see, as soon as I deflate my lungs, the water closes in around me. I begin to sink. Only...

Faith and Spiderman

Faith and Spiderman

By Stephanie Parker I’ve recently discovered that faith and Spiderman have something in common. Some of you know that my 3 year old son, Maverick, thinks he’s Spiderman. He introduces himself as Spiderman to perfect strangers, then, he shoots his ‘web’ at them. In typical Spiderman fashion, he is constantly jumping, running, fighting ‘bad guys’ and saving people. As you can imagine, trying to get ‘Spiderman’ to sit for 5 seconds to practice his ABC’s or eat a decent meal is like putting a hamster in his wheel and telling him, “Don’t move!” A few weeks ago however, Maverick (aka...
