Foundations Tested By Fire

Welcome to another installment in Clay's Corner.  I do apologize for the long wait between my posts.  Between work and Seminary, the hours of the day seem like short minutes.  I digress.  This installment, as read in the title, is called "Foundations Tested by Fire."  Once again, grab your Bible, pull up a chair, kick back and enjoy.  All comments are appreciated. 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 says, "According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the Read more [...]

It’s Friday…..But Sunday’s Coming……..

A few, short months ago, we celebrated the birth of a baby, our Lord and Savior, who was laid in a borrowed manger. The precious baby, who was already the King of Kings, grew up as an ordinary child.  That precious child grew into a man who set out to preach to all the world.  He would heal the blind and set the lame to walking. He would love his neighbor and he would share the good news of his Father in Heaven with all who would listen. A few, short months ago was a wonderful Read more [...]

Part 2: How The Total Transformation Is Changing Our Life

Recently I shared part 1  of my series on How The Total Transformation Program is changing our family.  Today I would like to share some more personal details about ways that this program has helped. Once we discovered what ineffective parenting skills we had been using (they were not bad, just not affective), we immediately put threw those parenting skills out, or at least really tried hard to do so. It wasn't easy to retrain our brains to think a different way, but we kept thinking about Read more [...]

Star Chronicles: A Bible-Based Study Of The Stars

How I Discovered Young Living Essential Oils AND GIVEAWAY!!!!

When I was in beauty school I was exposed to essential oils. We learned how to mix them for facials and other beauty treatments.

It was very interesting to me, but I wasn't ready to get rid of the medicine cabinet yet.  Over the years we have used various essential oils for different things and, needless to say, I have been amazed at how they work! I have blogged several Read more [...]
