2 Chronicles 7:14 Updated Post.

I originally posted 2 Chronicles 7:14 in honor of Independence Day in 2012.

Since then, it continues to get a lot of attention via search engines.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.   — 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV


If you are seeking political commentary, I’m not the blog you’re looking for.  I deliberately don’t engage in political discussion.  It’s not that I don’t have an opinion (I do!).

My mission and focus is to encourage moms.  All moms.  Regardless of political standing or any other label that might be used in the mommy wars.

If you are seeking resources because you wish to pray for our nation, I can suggest a downloadable book from Amazon (I’m an associate).

You can get the Kindle version right now.

I would also point you to a prayer guide available from Billy Graham.  I have no association with Mr Graham beyond owning at least one of his books.

If you want to see how I encourage moms through Joy and Laughter and Thankfulness, hang around.  Read a few posts.  Sign up for my newsletter or follow me on twitter or facebook.

Scripture Art – 1 Peter 5:7

I was working on artwork for a scripture memory verse. What do you think?

1 Peter 5-7 Cast your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

Why make scripture art?

I like to make framable scripture art like this for two reasons.

First, it helps me to meditate on the verse as I’m working on the art.

Second, I like to print it out and stick in a cheap frame, or attach it to my calendar, or just use it as wallpaper. Any of these help me keep the verse in front of me.

Why this scripture art?

I tend to get wound up over all sorts of stuff.  I get busy.  I let myself worry.   There are times when I just am anxious and fearful (and probably unpleasant to be around!)

In short, I need the reminder.

Cast your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.  — 1 Peter 5:7


I’d love to know what verse you turn to when you’re anxious or filed with worry.   If you’ve got a favorite verse, chime in and let me know.

Proverbial Foolish Women

Scripture thoughts from thishappymom.comProverbial foolish women. Now there’s an attention getting topic for Monday morning.  This has been on my heart and mind for a couple of weeks now (or longer) and I think I finally figured out what I need to say.  At least the first part.

I don’t want to be just a Proverbs woman.  I want to be a Proverbs 31 woman.  Not the ladies who sell those really cute purses and bags.  I’m talking about the verses in the bible that describe the ultimate woman.  Proverbs 31:10-34.  Go look, I’ll wait.

That woman rocks.  She has a clean house, she runs a business, she had house servants,  her kids love her, her husband loves her.  That woman has got it all going on!  She’s famous for being this perfect unattainable model of womanhood.  There are dozens of bible studies written on her.  I can’t imagine what kind of pins she’d put on Pinterest, but they’d be pretty freaking amazing.

But sometimes I worry that I’m that OTHER Proverbs woman.   [Read more…]

Scripture Picture: Psalm 90:12

Psalm 90:12

updated 3/17/13:  Psalms 90:12 continues to be a touchstone verse for my life.   Whenever I feel overwhelmed with too much to do, this verse helps me to slow down and refocus.

Teach me us to make the most of our time so that we may grow in Wisdom. — Psalm 90:12

It’s more of a prayer than anything.  Many times, I find myself rewording it, praying it as “teach ME to make the most of my time Lord! I need to grow in wisdom!”

I’m putting a fresh copy of this verse in my planner where I can see it often.

In case I need more:

The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
He delights in every detail of their lives.
Though they stumble, they will never fall,
For the Lord holds them by the hand. – Psalm 37:23-24, NLT

Wise Women Build Houses

The wise woman builds her house.  Proverbs 14:1  Wise Women rock!I want to be a wise woman who spends her time and energies building up her own house.  I’m always so disappointed when I find myself acting like the foolish woman, tearing down my own best efforts.  God calls us to be wise women, not foolish ones.
