Shall We Gather at the River…

Last Sunday we had a wonderful time together with our Church family celebrating three baptisms. Since our church rents a building, we don’t have a baptismol…so we held our gathering at the river.¬† I have never been to a river baptism before, but there was something very special about it.

The weather man had forcasted thunderstorms for that day…but God answered our prayers and gave us a wonderful DRY day for our gathering!

After the baptisms we had a cook out and some wonderful fellowship. We sure do love being apart of the Harvest Baptist Church. God has been so good to allow us to serve Him here.

May Book Reviews

“Women’s Ministry in the Local Church” by J. Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt

Women's Ministry in the Local Church

The main thrust of this book was to show why and how¬†there should¬†be a women’s ministry in the local church. For the most part it is directed at those in leadership that would implement a woman’s ministry or the women that would lead a woman’s ministry, but it is by no means only beneficial to those two types of people. The authors did an excellent job of showing the Biblical need and pattern for teaching and discipling women. I was encouraged to continue in¬†those things we are currently doing with our ladies at our church, and challenged to do more. Much more. Not only that, but the Bible pattern of women teaching women about Biblical womanhood was burned even deeper into my heart.

I appreciated this book very much.

“The Fruit of Her Hands” by Nancy Wilson

The Fruit of Her Hands: Respect and the Christian Woman

This is another great read by Nancy Wilson.  In this book she tackles the role of women as wife.  It is not deep, but it is Biblical and practical. I appreciate her easy to read and to the point writing style. In this book she deals with many aspects of being a wife, from how we are to view and treat our husbands, duties of homemaking, to the intimate part of marriage, and many other issues.

I did feel the book ended a bit abruptly, but I suppose it’s a good thing I wasn’t happy to reach the end so soon. I would certainly recommend this book. You could read it in a few short hours,¬†and the great Biblical truths she presents will be a¬† help and encouragement to any wife.

The Day to Remember

We had a great Memorial Day on Monday. Katie has us over to her place, along with the Dack family(who are her future in-laws and our good friends). Katie’s apartment is right on the lake, and the Dack’s had their boat docked there for the day. There was lots of good food, fishing, boat riding, tubing, and great fellowship.

It was also a great day to¬†teach Isaac about our responsibility to appreciate and pray for those men and women who have served and continue to serve our great nation. Several times throughout the day Isaac would ask, “Is it still the day that we remember the soldiers?” He wanted to make sure he kept remembering as long as he was supposed to. I love that boy! ūüôā
