I started an online class today on mentoring. I have had the privilege of being mentored and want to share that with other women. I have also been approached the last few months and asked to mentor two young women in our church. How humbling is that? So, I decided I needed to learn all about mentoring from a Biblical point of view! Here we go God, stretch me some more!

What can I do for the Kingdom of God?

God uses weak instruments to accomplish great results! Have you considered the following:

    A staff – Exodus 4:2

    A jawbone – Judges 15:15

    5 smooth stones – 1 Samuel 17:40

    Handful of flour & a little oil – 1 Kings 17:12

    A cloud the size of a man’s fist – 1 Kings 18:22

    Small things – Zechariah 4:10

    Mustard seed – Matthew 13:32

    5 Barley loaves – John 6:9

1 Corinthians 1:27-29 “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.  God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,  so that no one may boast before him.”

What small thing could God use in your life to expand the kingdom of God?
Be blessed,

LWW - New blog to me

I joined a Bible study this week to help me get back in God's word everyday. I had gotten so busy doing "God's work", that I had found myself going days without reading His word. The Bible study is on Proverbs 31 which is one of my favorite parts of scripture! A really neat site host this Women Living Well Ministries. I look forward to getting to know Courtney and all those who contribute!

Blog More

I have decided to start blogging more. I stopped because I felt so overwhelmed with life and couldn't decide what to blog about: homeschooling, healthy eating, my personal walk with Christ. So now I've decided to blog about what ever is in my heart!

Be blessed,
Terri Sue

3/4 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2)

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat oven to 425. Lightly spray muffin pan with olive oil or use liners.

In a large bowl add bananas, yogurt, honey, olive oil and vanilla. Stir together until well mixed.

In a seperate bowl, sift together floue, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingrediants to the banana mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the bleberries and the nuts.

Spoon the batter into pan. Reduce heat to 400 and place pan in oven for 35 - 40 minutes or until tops spring back to touch. Let cool in tin for 10 minutes before transferring to rack. Serve warm.

I only cooked mine for about 20 minutes and they were done. These were great and so good for you. I also used my homemade yogurt!

1st goal of the year - Healthy Eating

My first goal of the year toward better health is to get rid of sodas. I have been hooked on sodas since being a teenager and have tried many times to break the addiction. I usually do this by saying I can have them if we are out or at a friends home or just those special times when I neeeed one!

Well, no more, I'm not listening to Satan's lies anymore - I can break this stronghold!
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

I claim victory over this stronghold through Christ!

Just in case I'm a little cranky over the next few days, please give me some grace. My body will try and trick me in thinking I'm OK to just have a sip but I'm planning on standing strong in the Lord and being in prayer constantly!

What is your stronghold in getting healthier? If you leave me a comment I promise to lift you up in prayer!
