Oh, I have celebrated each year since her passing but it has always been different without her here. It is something…
The ultimate courage in life is to change from who we were to who God wants us to be. So many people mock at the changes we want to make in our lives – or if we have been Christians a while, there are many waiting to see us show our “true colors”. However, we need to be like Judah and be willing to admit when we make a mistake – and seek forgiveness where it is given.

http://worshipfulliving.com/2016/11/21/worship-thankfulness-collide/ Worshipful Living By Mandy Kelly If there is one general theme of my ministry, it is that our everyday lives are an act of worship to God. It is more than just heading to the church on Sunday morning. It is waking up every day, with your full purpose to be one of worshiping…
http://worshipfulliving.com/2016/11/21/worship-thankfulness-collide/ Worshipful Living By Mandy Kelly The problem is- we have to remember this more than just on Sunday. We need to remember this more thank just on Thanksgiving. We need this reminder every. single. day. Because worship is something we do every day. But somewhere, we have gotten the lines blurred. We think worship…
http://worshipfulliving.com/2016/11/27/5-christmas-traditions-christ-centered-family/ Worshipful Living: Christmas Traditions For A Christ Centered Family I love Christmas! It’s truly one of my favorite times of the year. Christmastime is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It was a special time when God showed his great love for us. The birth of Jesus brought great joy to the…

Christmas is all about Jesus. There is no doubt about it. As we look at the story of Jesus in Matthew – we see the lineage of Christ. In that lineage, we see a lot of the male figures. That is how the lineages were often shared.
Yet, in that lineage are four women. Four women who God saw fit to mention. These women come from different walks. They have less than perfect backgrounds. These are women we can all relate to.
Let’s dive in this advent season and look deeper into these women of Christmas- the women who God called out in the lineage of Christ. As we do, I think we will get a look into your own heart and lives as well!
http://worshipfulliving.com/2016/11/21/worship-thankfulness-collide/ Worshipful Living by Mandy Kelly God alone is worthy of our worship. What is your attitude when it comes toward the idea of worship? Do you come willingly to this time? Do you come with a heart of gratefulness for all that God has done? If I could be honest for a minute- that…
As Mama, we set the tone of our house. So, for week one, we will be talking about our tone. We are going to light a candle (or burn a diffuser! No Mommy hate allowed!) to remind us to focus on our tone. We are going to talk about some super practical ways we can set a positive atmosphere as well – and of course, we will dig into the heart issues as well!
Cook things with pleasant aromas like homemade bread, pies, and cookies. Don’t wait to have a reason to make something special – do it simply to show love to your family. Invite your kids and/or hubby to cook along side of you – make memories in the kitchen – test tasting, being creative, laughing and loving. Remember the importance of dinner time around the table as a family.
Live out the fruit of the Spirit this week by showing
love, goodness and faithfulness to your family.
I want to cheer them on in their victories, and help mold them through, and wipe their tears, in their greatest times of need. However, often, we are so busy. This week, as part of ourMake Your Home A Haven Challenge, we are to bake and fill our kitchen with yummy goodness. I love it. I can’t wait to cook some amazing things. But that isn’t what I want to share with you today. Today, I want to talk about

This is Part of The Making Your Home A Haven Series From Women Living Well /Good Morning Girls Facebook.
From Sarah: It isn’t hard to get caught up in emotions and everyday life. We sometimes forget to do our Bible Studies .(If we do them….I personally take time out every day…But I know many people who don’t. I don’t believe it is a HAVE TO for everyone. It needs to be a choice. You can talk to God anywhere and at any time.)
We are human and we get UPTIGHT at times.
It is OK.
Just ask forgiveness.
Let your family know you are sorry.

http://worshipfulliving.com/2015/12/29/worshipful-homemaking/ From Mandy: Homemaking doesn’t mean a homemaker. I think we often get that confused too. I was a mom that worked outside the home for quite a few years- and homemaking was still something I did. It wasn’t a “title”, but it is part of my life as a woman.
http://worshipfulliving.com/2014/10/20/importance-family-fun-kindness-joy-link/ Mandy shares a post from 2014. Making Your Home A Haven : From Mandy, When you are having these family moments- we have to lead by example. That is the best way to teach kindness – by being an example. The best way to be kind is to forgive. Be kind to one another,…
http://worshipfulliving.com/2014/11/17/attitude-praise/ From Mandy : Play Praise Music– I learned that the more praise music- or Bible reading – I had playing in my home – the more my attitude was lifted higher to the place it should be. Music can truly change the atmosphere of our home.
I think the first thing that is important in making your home that haven, and finding joy in your homemaking is to receive it from the Lord, and then give it back to the Lord. We need to realize this calling is from God. He has made you the wife and the Mama in this house. He has given you the task of being a homemaker- no matter how many hours a day you devote to it, it is a task I think every woman on the Earth feels! Yet, we also need to give it BACK to the Lord.
http://worshipfulliving.com/2014/10/02/home-haven-2014/ Making Your Home A Haven By Worshipful Living. How do you make your home a have.? Is your home a peaceful place to come home to? Is your home a Safe Haven?
Each day, we are sowing seeds into the lives of those in our home. We are either sowing seeds of peace, patience, and even worship, into their lives, or we are sowing the opposites of those things. We need to keep doing good and trust God for the results- it is HIS harvest and he will reap it in our lives, but we must not give up.
One way that I have found to keep peace and patience in my home is through having a schedule. Today, I am sharing my home maintenance schedule with you. I have found that when we keep things running on a schedule, there is more peace in our homes, because the expectations are clear.
Gentleness is displayed most often by the words that come out of my mouth. I have to use an extreme (sometimes more than others!) amount of self-control in order to speak gentle words. As a mom, I am often reminding my children of Proverbs 15:1. To speak gently means we are controlling the other emotions that are going on inside of us. It doesn’t mean we are not feeling those emotions – just controlling them!
Our kids will often use the same tones, and even words we do. Most people have heard this famous saying
Kids rarely misquote. They usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said.
The same is true in our tones and our attitudes. If we have a certain attitude about a situation – they will often have the same attitude. So, we need to control our words, and our actions, and be sure that we are showing gentleness in both.

The storms are not always physical. Sometimes, they are spiritual in nature. Sometimes we have storm waters that rise in our lives – that try to choke out our joy and our peace.
My home was a physical haven this weekend. It was safety as the storm raged.
