27 Things I’ve Learned from 27 Years of Life {India Werner}

I recently celebrated my twenty-seventh birthday.  Each year I reflect on all that the Lord has taught me.  Sometimes I cringe when I think of the way I used to act in certain areas (LOL), but I know that I’ll probably do the same thing in a few years when I look back to this […]

Everyday Glimpses {India Werner}

              I am thankful to say that my Kannada CD recording is behind me at last!  The Lord laid this project on my heart at the beginning of the year, and it was one of my project goals, in a sense.  There were many obstacles that came up between then and now, but the Lord […]

Priorities and Seasons {India Werner}

              Seasons of life come and go.  Some of these seasons flow in and out of our lives as gently and naturally as spring, summer, fall, and winter.  We expect them; we know they’ll be coming.  If they are seasons that we enjoy, we savor each moment.  We do our best to get through the […]

Road Rage {Lois Ormsby}

Confession: road rage is something I struggle with!  No, I don’t swear or use rude hand signals or anything like that.  What I do is verbally blow up at the person who cuts me off – yep, out loud, as if they could hear me.  I go on and on about how dangerous their move […]

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”.               […]
