God's Roadmap

Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

Black Friday Gift Giving Suggestions that Offer Insight and Hope

by Barbara Latta

A giveaway at the end of the post! 

It’s that time of year. Christmas music flows through the airwaves on radios and store intercoms. In some parts of the country the weather has cooled off and the crisp air feels like snow and smells like evergreen. The Hallmark Channel is bursting with mistletoe and holly and the oldies we can’t find there can be viewed through DVD.

Black Friday sales have been advertised for weeks and now it’s time to shop.

A Sabbath Rest for Grief--Exploring Soul Care When You're Grieving with Edie Melson

A Sabbath Rest for Grief - Exploring Soul Care When You're Grieving with Edie Melson

 by Barbara Latta

I had the privilege of interviewing Edie Melson, author of Soul Care When You’re Grieving. This is the third and latest book in the Soul Care series, which consists of Soul Care When You’re Weary, and Soul Care for Writers.

There are many books about handling grief on the market today, but this one is unique in the perspective of combining simple art and creativity with caring for our emotions. The goal of the Soul Care books is to give people who are in a crisis or busy time a way to not be overwhelmed with a big Bible study. Each book contains five short chapters, devotions, and five creative connections.

A Prayer Walk

A Prayer Walk

 Guest post by Candyce Carden

I am excited to welcome Candyce Carden to guest post on this week's blog. She is a true example of a Titus 2 woman. I met Candyce through Lighthouse Bible Studies and have been blessed by her writing and contributions. I know you will enjoy her post and I pray you will be inspired to participate in a prayer walk of your own, especially as we enter this Thanksgiving season. 

Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

(John 14:23 NIV)


My husband of three years and I spent most of October moving and settling into a new house. I’d been praying for months for this future home. That we’d find the perfect one to meet our needs in the right location. That we’d be in it for the holidays. The prayers had been answered.

 Before moving day, the Holy Spirit nudged me to prayer walk through the empty rooms of our house.

 What is a Prayer Walk?

Is It Godly for a Nation to go to War?

by Barbara Latta

War has existed since the first violence against the image of God in the Garden of Eden. Mankind lost that soulish encounter.

Battles have been fought since that time because of the condition of man’s heart.
