Strengthening Families Across the World through the encouragement of women in their high calling from God as wives, mothers and homemakers.

FilledMiraclesNever forget the amazing miracles that surround you in your home. Each child God gives you is unique and special. A unique person who has never lived in the history of this earth before, and never will again. They are one of a kind, designed by our Creator. God gives each one special gifts to use for Him to glorify His name. What a privilege to encourage them into God's plan and destiny.

ANewWordI love new and interesting words. The other day my sister introduced me to a new word, “perspicacity” meaning “the ability to understand things and make accurate judgments, to have discernment.” We certainly need this virtue in this day of such deception.

However, the word I have for you today is a Greek word, “spoudazo.” You pronounce it “spoo-dad-zo.” I like the sound of it, don’t you? I think your children will love saying it too. And it has a great meaning.

It comes from 2 Peter 1:10: “Give DILIGENCE to make your calling and election sure.” The word “diligence” means “to use speed, to be prompt, to make an effort, to be earnest, labor, study.”

I think we could helpfully add this word to our family vocab, don’t you? This word teaches our children how to do their daily chores—not haphazardly, not complainingly, not dragging their feet, but instead as quickly as they can and putting their full effort into it.

Why not teach this word to your children? Get them saying the word aloud. Get them saying it all together at breakfast time as you start the day. It’s fun to say. When you ask them to do something, remind them to do it with SPOO-DAD-ZO!

If you as the mother, and each of the children embrace this word with everything you do throughout the day, can you imagine the fun? The change in attitude? The efficiency that will come to your home?

This word applies to our spiritual and practical lives.

Be blessed. Nancy Campbell

QFeminieDear ladies, As our humanistic society seeks to become more and more genderless, I feel it would not be out of order to read another article about femininity. Here is another one for you today.
