Quiet Time PDF Print E-mail

I can’t remember when I last heard the expression, “Quiet Time.” It wasn’t in a sermon. Maybe it was in an article I read. A book? Probably. It’s one of those quaint sayings from the 1950s that you seldom hear used anymore, unless you like pop music. Or you’re shopping for a pet bed.

There’s “Time Out,” of course. But that’s an expression related to discipline. When kids hear it, they are quick to reply, “What did I do?” And in the next breath, they point to someone else in the room. And there is also “quiet,” as in the absence of noise. The hearing impaired know all about this condition and how expensive it is to correct.

Family Fun Night Ideas PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chrystal   

We are big fans of family nights here in the Smallwood home. Any chance we get we, usually on a Friday night, we have a family night. It's simply a night that we set aside to spend quality time together. Often it's a movie and pizza or popcorn, but other nights there are themes. I've put together a list of inexpensive ideas. I'm hoping you'll use them to spend some quality time with your families!

Are You Praying for Your Family? PDF Print E-mail

Statue of a woman praying.

Recently, several of us had dinner with the international evangelist Sammy Tippit. He said that for years he often stated that he grew up in a secular home with no spiritual heritage.

But then recently he discovered a written description of his grandmother who died five years before he was born. It referred to her as a woman of prayer, and stated that she prayed so fervently the doors of the church shook when she prayed.

Then Sammy understood why the first time he heard the Gospel, he repented and received Christ. Two nights later he was called to preach. His godly grandmother’s prayers were answered, too, for her son. Sammy’s father came to Christ shortly before he died.

The Proverbs 31 woman drives me nuts... PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chrystal   
The Proverbs 31 woman drives me nuts. I wish she'd show up to church with a fresh piece of broccoli between her teeth. I think about her every so often. You know like right now when I read that "she sets about her work vigorously" and "works with eager hands." I look around to see dishes that are overtaking the counter and the laundry I stepped around in my bathroom. Then I read that "she gets up while it is still dark"-WHAT?? I can count on my fingers that number of times that I have gotten up "while it is still dark" and then she actually works? THEN I read that her family is clothed in scarlet...mine aren't, that's for sure. So I probably think about her every so often because I never give her the proper amount of time. Maybe I’m avoiding her. Maybe.
Come To Me And I Will Give You Rest PDF Print E-mail

Rousing me from my sleep, I heard our daughter, Destiny, crying.  Finally realizing she wasn’t going to stop crying, I went to check on her.  She came into my arms with those little hiccup sobs laying her head on my shoulder, and I knew she wasn’t going to go back to sleep if I laid her right back down in her bed.  It was still dark out and not yet time to get up, so I carried her back to our room and carefully climbed into bed situating the blankets to cover both of us with Destiny lying on my chest.  Before snuggling down to sleep, she raised her head, looked over toward my husband, and laid her hand on his chest, which he promptly covered with his hand.  She laid her head back down on my chest and comforted by Mommy and Daddy fell back to sleep.  As I lay there wondering what could have caused her need to be comforted, I realized that my daughter and I were not much different.  For more often than not, I have that same need to be comforted and sometimes only the comfort from my Heavenly Father will do.
