Accepting Help {Lois Ormsby}

Being the recipient of a helping hand is not always easy – especially when you are the type of person who loves to be the helping hand for someone else.  I’ve had to accept help (of so many forms) more times in the past few years than I care to admit.  Through the repeated process […]

A Messy Heart {Lois Ormsby}

Recently God slammed me with a convicting thought.  The thought was so real and so strong that I’ve made sure to meditate on it regularly since. By now you all know how much of an organization fanatic I am.  Our house gets messy, that is for sure, for we live in it and living makes […]

Everyday Glimpses: My Toddler’s Chores {Lois Ormsby}

Here is a fun and maybe insightful glimpse into life at the Joshua Ormsby household.  Our son, Malachi, is nearly 2 and 1/2 now, but he has been helping with the chores for at least a year already!  He is not quite to the point where we expect him to complete certain chores every single […]

Everyday Glimpses {India Werner}

              There have been some days of silence on our blog lately, but our lives have certainly not been silent!  Lois has been busy with her sweet little family, Thirty-One business, and involvement in her local church.  Here is a recent picture of Lois and baby Joash that she sent me via Whatsapp.  Can they […]

Music with a Story – Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing {India Werner}

             Perhaps one of the most popular hymns of all time is “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”.  It just so happens to be my favorite song!  The words speak truth to my heart and the tune inspires me.  The words “bind my wandering heart to Thee” are probably my favorite part of the song.  […]

Book Review: “In Love” by Bud Calvert {India Werner}

              I recently read a book called “In Love”.  It was written by Dr. Bud Calvert, who was a pastor for thirty-five years and is still in ministry today.  If you are looking for a book about marriage that is not overly long but still full of meat, you might enjoy reading “In Love”.               […]

Everyday Glimpses: My Church Family {Lois Ormsby}

  “In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord.” Ephesians 2:21   Josh and I are blessed with a close-knit church family.  I was especially reminded of this with the recent arrival of our second son, Joash.  Any time something is happening for us, big or small, […]

For the Love of Lists {Lois Ormsby}

I am a list nerd.  My planner is like a list of lists, each one keeping me on track with various things like grocery shopping, cleaning projects, or thank-you notes.  A couple weeks ago I was thinking how my lists probably drive some people crazy because I literally implement them for just about everything.  They […]

Everyday Glimpses {India Werner}

Life for me is never dull.  While some days are more exciting than others, none of them are actually boring.  I’m a child of God, a ministry wife, and a mom.  This is my job, my life.  The world looks at my job description and either scoffs at me or pities me.  I, on the […]
