We are taking a week long break from school this week. Let me say, I need it! I am convinced that when all of my children are school age, my homeschooling life will be easier. Having to educate two children, and keep watch over two toddlers, is taxing, to say the least. If you add being a Pastor’s wife into the mix, then it’s nearly impossible.Motherhood and homeschooling have done something very important for me though. They have kept me on my knees before the Lord. I’m not saying I’m a super prayer warrior, I’m just saying that I need the Lord’s help to mold and train my youngters for Him. I need His help to educate them. I need His divine care and guidance to be a Pastor’s wife.
I have needed a break, and I’m glad I’m getting one. I have also needed spiritual refreshment. My husband preaches many wonderful and convicting messages from the Lord. But even Pastor’s need a re-fueling once in a while! I don’t care how much time we spend in God’s Word, we still need the spiritual renewal that only a Man of God can provide. Notice, I said “man of God”, not a preacher. Any man can preach, but few are true men of God.
I am so happy that our break coincides with our revival meeting. I scheduled the break at this time on purpose, but I had no idea how desperately I would need the preaching that we’ve had so far.
We are having Bro. Tim Green preach for us this week. He’s been a friend of my husband’s since he was 15 years old. He is a great Bible preacher, but he is also a man who walks with God.
I hope and pray I can report back to you on Thursday that we have seen souls saved. We have already seen a cleansing work of the Lord on some hearts – mine was the first one- and there have been others.
If you think of us this week, please pray for Grace Baptist Church, the city of Hope and the state of Arkansas, to experience revival. From the there, it could spread to our entire nation.

It could happen, but only God can do it.

    We will be in much prayer for y'all. We all need revival. Enjoy the much needed break. I have a friend that schools 3 weeks on 1 week off and loves it. It gives you something to look forward to and keeps you on track to meet your goal to be able to take the week off. Maybe I'll try it.
    With your break, you should be able to FINISH your love story this week.
    Who agrees with me? There are hands going up all over America…LOL.

    Love & Take Care,


  2. Have a wonderful Revival Service this week and tell Bro. Green we said HELLO, if you would!

    I am praying for your revival, and I am eager to hear the reports of what the Lord does. Bro. Green is a unique individual so I'm sure he is refreshing to fellowship with. In The Baptist Bread he has mentioned walking for exercise. Is he doing that in Hope?
    I love you.


  6. Our revival services start this coming Tuesday-Sunday. Praying for your services too.
