Bodacious Faith, Roma Downey, Emilie Barnes, Laura Calder, Abigail Adams and More! Friday at 2:00 on The Homefront Show

If you’re like me, sometimes you need a little extra strength.   And a little, no, make that a lot more love.  A little faith, no a lot more faith.  There’s a song about having “a little faith” and it sounds all pious but it’s not.  God is not the god of just a little bit.  No more than we want our kids to sniff the spinach bowl and disdain the roast beef rather than enjoy the entire meal – no more than that does God want us to take just a little bit.

In the secular college where I studied economics, we were taught scarcity of resources, just as Satan intends we all be taught. Rather than being taught to simply create more pie, we are taught about that one measly pie.  By people of greed and lack we are taught greed and lack.  We have limited, scarcity, I’d-better-not-expect-too-much, if-I-prosper-that means-someone-else-can’t (but too bad for them), mentalities.

But God wants to give us all the good and then embellish it! He wants to give us the truck farm of spinach and serve up helpings of it along with the steak from our cattle on a thousand hills and finish it off with key lime pie shared with the neighbors under twinkle lights on our big decks built out over the water.

Livnig water. My nephew’s son has had an intestinal issue lately and they think it may be too much swimming in the river, which is low right now, stagnant.  Folks, we are all putting up with low water, swimming in stagnant water, and completely doing without the readily available living water of Jesus.

We think in lack. Even those of us with money in the bank think in lack.  Always in a defensive, “yeah but, what if” mentality.  And almost guaranteeing that the lack will come (we say what we believe and we have what we say, we get what we expect), and  even if it doesn’t come, we never enjoy what we have and where we are.

So, we need faith. I’m going to talk a little, but say a lot, about faith today, bodacious faith.  And we’ll see how so many things flow out of faith, and flow into faith.  We’ll see a cycle of faith.

So call anyone you know who struggles with doubt, who frets and worries, who has anxiety lines right between her eyes (anyone who is a human, especially a human female) and tell them:

http://www.1360am.co is the place to go, for The Homefront Show.

Also today we’ll talk about the power of posture and poise, about the Inviting Life,`Housekeeping Howevers, baking pineapple for brunch, about being a COI per Krista Dunlap, and from The Founder’s Bible we’ll see how two of our founding parents had great expectations for their children.  I’ll feature Roma Downey’s book, Box of Butterflies, and Emilie Barnes’ Tea Lover’s Devotional.  And we’ll begin today’s show with beauty AND PERHAPS A CORRECTION, from Psalm 19:12.

All this and more today at 2:00 Mountain Time at www.1360am.co

The Founder’s Bible, God’s Desire to Answer Prayer, From Addict to Pastor, Transformative Years and More Coming Up!

From The Founder’s Bible I”ll be sharing proof of God’s desire to answer the prayers of America’s Founding Fathers today on The Homefront Show.

Today’s show is about transformation via the Gospel and I’ll showcase the story of a former alcoholic, drug addicted Marine who is now a fervent and effectual minister of the Gospel.

There’s much more, including two special guests, a book giveaway (Philip DelRe’s God the Final Frontier), and thoughts from Bob Barnes (Emilie’s husband) taken from his book, What Makes a Man Feel Loved.

So, call someone who needs a lift and a blessing and a new perspective and tell them to join us:  http://www.1360am.co on Friday, March 23 at 2:00 Mountain.

Thanks!

John was Right about Her, and Rebekah will be on at 2:00!

After a particularly trying day with my girls, ages 4 and 3, I met John at the door with a long lament.  When I finished he said these immortal words, “Some day these girls will be your best buddies and you will enjoy every minute you have with them.”

Huh?

Years later I am admitting, as I have to do so often to John, “You were right.”  What a gift back to me are these children I’ve been blessed to stay home with, to love and educate as priceless treasures, as though they were (THEY ARE!) royalty.  My lamentations gave way to praises a long time ago, and today Rebekah Parker will grace all listeners as she joins me on The Homefront Show!

Look at your lament as a leading.  That’s Part I of today’s Homefront Show Broadcast on http://www.1360am.co at 2:00 Mountain Time.

Rebekah Parker will be on with an infusion of joy from Sheila Walsh, I’ll answer the question, “Which is more deadly, typhus, typhoid, or selfishness?” and Real Man John Parker may chime in about something brilliant.

The aforementioned lament is about handling major differences of opinion with other Christians, and how a lament can either be a fearful road to nowhere, or the impetus to get aboard God’s Love Train and have an adventure!

There’s more, such as why studying Benjamin Rush’s life would be a great home school project, and my favorite part of David and Goliath’s story, and why Zorro rocks.  Perhaps the most important part is where we understand the difference in being disappointed in a child, vs. for a child, and how to communicate this to bring healing to all parties.

Thanks for tuning in today at 2:00:  http://www.1360am.co

A Different Kind of January on the Home Front Radio Show

snow-picture

Tomorrow on the Home Front Show (1360 am radio in Johnstown, Colorado) I have about three hours of material to fit into one.

I’m going to share from The Founder’s Bible excerpts entitled Saturate Yourself in God’s Word and A Most Interesting Act of Kindness.  I’ll be discussing how the Bible doesn’t talk about New Year’s Resolutions – rather, we are shown by example to make New Day’s Resolutions.

Resolutions in January?  January, rather than being fit for get-up-and-go activities, is much more suited to hibernation, fireside chats, and thick socks and sweaters.  And even if you live where it’s 80 degrees, just think of January as a lovely time for recovering from the holidays, for thoughtfully and prayerfully and gently easing yourself into the new year.

But back to the Home Front Show (Friday, Jan 6 at 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time):  I’m going to call on the written words of wise women tomorrow, regarding marriage and homemaking.  I’ll be sharing marriage thoughts from my own book, The Maker’s Marriage, as well as choice words from Dr. Laura’s The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands.  Time permitting Edith Schaeffer will be quoted, and I’m going to rock a few boats with thoughts from Bringing up Bebe.

As almost always there will be a plug for Home Schooling.  Bringing Up Bebe is actually a book I recommend for moms who can’t wait until their kids are old enough to send to school, and another author who probably never thought she’d be used for this purpose is Jane Brocket.  I’ll be suggesting that Jane’s books might be almost all you need for a fabulously fun and productive home school curriculum for girls.

The show will go on – to other topics, in particular that of personal identity, and protection from “identity theft.”  In December I started talking about identity theft in our society, but didn’t get very far due to time constraints.  So, January’s shows (every Friday at 2:00 p.m. MT) will all at least touch on this, with a special and eloquent speaker on the subject joining us for the final January show.

The Home Front Show is all about building your home through building your faith.  So, as I always say on the broadcast (or something to this effect), “Do you have a friend who could use a boost?  Call her or him and say,Tune in to the Home Front Show!'”
