Danielle and Hannah spent many hours at home with their mother making sure they had their verses down well. The teamwork between parents and daughters towards the goal of memorizing the book of James was so encouraging!
Girls and kitties... they were just meant to go together. :)
These Words we have laid in our hearts, that we may not sin against our God, but shine as bright lights in an increasingly darkening world.
After quoting Scripture and enjoying wholesome fellowship, we learned about the power of the tongue. I didn't realize how jam packed that topic is until I began to study to share on it... with 700+ verses in the Bible containing words related to speech, we know that this is a very important principle to the Lord.
It was truly a privilege to learn together with my sisters in Christ. We started our study by having Jewel help us understand why it's so important that we speak the way God has designed for us to.
This time around, I was especially encouraged with the constant gratitude that was showed! A grateful heart is wonderfully contagious. :)
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good;
and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil:
for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
