Congraduation!

My husband graduated from The Master's Seminary with his Master's of Divinity. He will be going back to get his Master's of Theology, for the next couple years. Here are a couple snap shots from the banquet and graduation. I'm so proud of him.

Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute

Remember this saying? I do. This was a popular quote used to keep clean and preserve our precious Earth. How much more though should we make this slogan a quote about our minds!?

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." Philippians 4:8

"We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ"
2 Corinthians 10:5


Ask Yourself...
-Where do your thoughts go when you have some idle moments?
-Do you wallow in godlessness or are you feeding on the truth?
-Are you a negative person or a positive person?
-Do you build people up or tear them down?

-Are you evaluating the messages the world is subtly sending your way?
-Are you intentional about filling your mind with the good, pure, and valuable truth of God?

Resolved 2009




The Resolved Conference

June 12-15, 2009
Palm Springs Convention Center

In a strange and wonderful irony, the greatest problem on Earth is resolved by the greatest reality in Heaven.

Sin - it is the poisonous nature of humanity. The depth and breadth of sin is evident everywhere in our world. It is the fundamental principle in every person and the driving momentum of every society. From our first parents in Eden to infants drawing their first breath this day, every human is infected with sin's rebellion against God and His Word. As the Christmas carol languishes, "long lay the world in sin and error pining."

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). This is the reality from Heaven that resolves sin. The gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s amazing and solitary resolution for sin and sinners. The death of Jesus stands forever as God's most glorious act. And it was for the purpose of defeating sin.

Resolved 2009 will focus on sin. What is sin? How bad is it? Where did it come from? How can I be saved from it and its consequences? Is it possible to stop? Our 5th Resolved Conference will explore these questions and provide biblical answers.

John Owen wrote, "Be killing sin, or it will be killing you."
I cannot wait until the confrence. The last time I went was in 2007, and it was such a wonderful time of learning about our God.
