They Are Messy

Everyone who has been in relationship knows it to be true. It isn't a secret. Relationships are messy. And family relationships can be the messiest of all.

Thankfully, God, in His loving kindness and grace, has provided examples of relationships for us to follow in the Bible. In scripture we see Jesus knows exactly how messy family can be. His family didn't always understand his calling, and his friends denied they even knew him. One of them betrayed him for the price of a slave! Yes, our lord understands messy.

In spite of the mess, one of those same brothers who didn't "get it" when Jesus lived on earth ended up writing a book in the Bible. Messy doesn't have to remain a mess. God can turn our messes into messages of life, hope, and goodness. Times of testing can be transformed into glorious testimonies of loving forgiveness.

No matter where you or I am in our relationships, Abba God has everything under control. He is bringing all of us into His likeness. Together, in our messes, we are being transformed into a rich, rare, and beautiful treasure.

In the middle of messy,

Summer Reads

Hi! What a long time it has been since we've visited! I am thankful to be here on our special bench visiting today. Do you think the rain will soak us before our visit is through? As long as it is the rain of the Holy Spirit from Heaven everything will be fine.

I can't begin to tell you how many conversations with you I have begun in my mind throughout the past few months. They are simply too numerous to tell. Most frequently I wanted to tell you about the latest books I have been reading. The visits where we share what we are reading with each other seem to be the most thoroughly enjoyed. Because I have been reading some of the books for a very long time, there may be titles you recognize from other visits. There are definitely some new ones you simply musn't miss though so I will risk repeating myself.

  • The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp *
  • Rivers of Grace by Mark and Patti Virkler
  • Revolution in the Church: Challenging the Religious System with a Call for Radical Change by Michael L. Brown
  • The Book of Romance: What Solomon Says about Love, Sex, and Intimacy by Tommy Nelson
  • A Family Shaped by Grace: How to Get Along with the People Who Matter Most by Gary Morland *
  • The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears by Mark Batterson
  • Jane Austen by Peter Leithart
  • Proverbs by Eugene H. Peterson
  • The Life Giving Home: Creating a Place of Belonging and Becoming by Sally and Sarah Clarkson *
  • If Only I Had a Green Nose by Max Lucado
  • The Big Red Tractor and the Little Village by Francis Chan
  • The Oak Inside the Acorn by Max Lucado
  • When God Made You by Matthew Paul Turner
  • The WouldBeGoods by Edith Nesbit *
* a personal favorite 

All of these reads, except Jane Austen, have been pure pleasure to read. Each one has provided exactly the morsel needed to chew on at the precise moment nourishment was needed. I am finding the book about Jane Austen informative but boring. I don't know if I have ever written such a word as boring in a book review before. Not certain I like doing so now, but it can't be helped. I do find the book a truly boring read. Perhaps it is the author's tone, which seems to drone on and on or perhaps it is the uninteresting manner the facts are relayed. All I know is it holds my interest not one little bit, even if it is about Jane Austen. I do find myself wanting to put on a pot of tea when reading though. So that is one good thing about it. 

Speaking of tea, The book by Sally and Sarah Clarkson listed above has been like a soothing balm to my weary soul. I find myself wanting to get lost in the writing while also wanting to pop up and prepare tea or create a dress up trunk for my children. To say the Clarksons speak my heart's language would be an understatement. Not only do these godly women speak with gentleness and love, they also write truth sharing how the every day practical is intended to be infused with the supernatural of God Who is Love. It is encouraging, challenging, and soothing all at once. 

As with most summers, the Easy Homeschooling series by Lorraine Curry and the books on a Thomas Jefferson style leadership education are being scoured for educational gold and teacher's encouragement. Our hearts' desire is for our learning to be strengthened each year. I also possess high hopes for giving Never Too Early by Doreen Claggett another go. Count has been lost of how many times that book's pages have crossed my eyes.

No matter how much I enjoy other reading material, my favorite read of all time is, and always will be, the Bible. Someday, someway, somehow I hope to share the miraculous ways the Bible has led, taught, and revealed truth to each one of our family. For now, know that I have saved the best of the reading list for last. God's Word. The Bible. What have you been reading lately? Are your spirit, soul, and body being challenged, led, and strengthened? Is there a particular read that has brought supernatural soothing to your soul? Please, do tell us! We'd love to hear from you!

Reading to the glory of God,
Abundantly Blessed 


HUGE Giveaway!!!

Hi! I rarely talk about homeschooling because not many of our readers homeschool. However, because there is a SUPER HUGE Giveaway taking place tomorrow,  I simply have to share. Just in case someone reading is a homeschooler or knows someone who could benefit from these resources.

The giveaway is one day only, tomorrow April 25 9am - 9pm CST. It is at notebookingpages.com. Not only are Lifetime Memberships being given away and/or offered at greatly reduced prices, but many free resources from other companies are included in the various giveaway pacakages as well. One of the packages is valued at $800! This is a giveaway notebooking homeschoolers, or those who know them, don't want to miss.

Those of you who do not homeschool or notebook please pass the word on to any and every one you know who does. Everyone who enters will receive a free sample of various notebooking pages offered by notebookingpages.com. Any individuals who practice the art of keeping a journal could also put a number of these pages to use.

Just to clarify, notebooking is a method of recording what a person/student is learning. Basically, notebooking is journaling and/or scrapbooking what you are studying. It is a method of study that has been proven to increase a student's retention of knowledge and allow them "ownership" of their education. It also provides each student with the opportunity to freely express their unique creativity.

Our students and I are newcomers to the world of notebooking, yet we are looking forward to filling many notebooks with pages full of everything we are learning. Giggles thoroughly enjoys creating notebook pages to fill with the facts and and information she learns; Mighty Man of God prefers putting the web-app to good use and create pages using creative technology rather than hand drawn images.

Don't forget the giveaway tomorrow at notebookingpages.com,

Simply Done Food

What a lovely spring morning for a visit with a friend!  One of the most life changing lessons I have been learning this past year is how meaningful and healing simple things can be. Too often throughout the years I have mistakenly felt special gifts and occasions must be complicated and over-the-top in order to be special. God has been gently teaching me this simply is not so. While preparing to enter the restful rhythm of Sabbath, a couple of simply easy recipes came to mind. You came to mind at the same time; thinking of you made me hungry for a lovely spring's morning visit together. These recipes have been shared before, but good things bear repeating.

English Muffin Bread
Lemon Curd

As you sit with a cup of  your favorite beverage, savoring a piece of freshly toasted English Muffin bread smothered in fresh lemon curd, may the presence of Jehovah Shalom, God our Peace, permeate the very atmosphere of your home. May He begin from within you spilling Himself out of your heart into whatever place you are. Even if you don't make the bread or lemon curd, may He still fill wherever you are with Himself, for wherever the Spirit of the Lord is we can find rest.

May a Sabbath of resting in Him be yours,
Abundantly Blessed


The Bible is Encouraging

The following words were especially encouraging to me this morning. Perhaps they will be for you as well. God's Word is alive and active. May the power of The Word wash over you, strengthen, soothe, and fill you with an increased knowledge of Who He is as you read them.

"This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the Lord of hosts." Zechariah 4:6

Zerubbabel was responsible for rebuilding the temple without trusting in man for resources. As I read this earlier I was struck with the similarity between Zerubbabel's situation and mine as a mother. I am responsible for building foundations of Truth in the temples of God a.k.a. my children. Just as Zerubbabel relied on God for the resources needed so too I can rely on Him for what is needed in building in the lives of my family.

"If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey." Numbers 14:8

The Lord will bring and give. Not me. Not my knowledge. Not my strength. The Lord will do what needs to be done. A timely reminder on this Monday morning.

"For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them." Psalm 44:3

Another reminder that it is not me. It is God. He will not only save but He will keep.

"We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith's perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was filled with the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2 The Passion Translation

He endured for me. The ultimate love story I never tire of hearing. Nothing wrong with Hallmark love stories on TV, but those stories can't hold a candle to truth. There never has been and never will be a greater, more romantic lover than God. For love He gave.

"I pray with great faith for you, because I'm fully convinced that the One who began this glorious expression of grace in you will faithfully continue the process of maturing you through your union with him and will complete it at the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ!" Philippians 1:6 The Passion Translation

God won't leave me. He won't quit. He will finish what He has begun in me. Hallelujah! I will be completed in Him! And did you see? Did you see that not only will He faithfully continue the process of maturing me, but that the maturing process is referred to as a "glorious expression of grace"? Becoming mature is not only intended to be a process, that process is an expression of grace. I don't have some weird defect nor am I lacking something necessary because it is taking time for me to mature. Maturing in Christ is meant to be a process rather than a one time event. And that phrase, an "expression of grace"... Doesn't that phrase bathe your mind in beauty?

As you travel through the day, may these words of truth from Truth cause you to be infused with the strength of the Lord throughout your entire being.

From one expression of grace to another,
Abundantly Blessed


I Know the One Who Does

There is a lot I don't know, but I know the One who knows everything. The One who knows everything? He knows me. I'm so very very very very glad He knows me. I was already keenly aware of how precious little I knew, but the past several months have revealed how little that precious little really is.

It is my prayer that the following reading encourages and strengthens your hope. http://www.equipandempower.org/neutrino/ems02/email.php?email=8e3199061cfb11e7b490&template=76a78936baa011e39830

Jesus Is The Same

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I am not. I am not the same at all. As a matter of fact, I am not the same person I was a few weeks ago.

Several months ago in the fall, one of our older children moved out on their own. Change, an exciting change as we witnessed God's abundant provision for our child firsthand. Then, life got real, said child got tired and bored, and more changes began occurring. As parents there was one major recourse and that was prayer. Pray, pray, pray, and pray some more. We did.

 Christmas came then went. A new year came and went. Weeks passed with our family knowing something wasn't "right" but not being able to find out what was "wrong". A few months passed. Now instead of watching God's mighty hand of provision and victory working in our child's life we were watching a downward spiral that would have terrified us had we not been trusting in the Lord.

One day an explosion rent our hearts. The explosion that hit our hearts with the ferocity of a tsunami arrived in the quiet form of an email note. "Dear Papa and Mama..." the brief email began. As the words of that tiny announcement paraded before my eyes, my heart was screaming "Oh no, no, no. Please God let this be one of those ridiculous joke emails. Please, God, no. no. no. no."

 No matter how much I wanted it to be a warped joke, it was real. The words were true. One of our beloved children had made major life decisions contrary to the truth of God and His ways. Not only had our child left the foundation of truth laid for them, but they had also chosen a life filled with potential danger and abuse.

It is amazing how almost everything changed for me after that email. Very little remains the same. One thing does remain. God and His Word. God is good. God is faithful. God is glorious. God is love. God is true. God is real. God remains. God saves. God keeps. God satisfies. God heals. God restores. God is. In the middle of the pain, God is. God always has been, always is, and always will be. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit never change, never leave, never loose their hold on me. God is.

Over a month later, our child has now been rescued by God's miraculous grace and mercy. Our child is safe at home learning what it means to live free and whole in Jesus.  And mama? Mama is not the same. Mama is changed. Mama is more grateful to God than words can tell for how He has rescued and delivered her child from darkness. I am giving God thanks in advance for His continued working in all of my children's lives. God restores, redeems, and makes new. Mama is blessed. Abundantly so.

A House Anchored in Hope

Good Morning! God is so good. His love for each one of us is so great. Every day He shows me His love over and over in too many ways to count. Nobody loves me like God does. Nobody loves me like Love. (1 John 4:7,8) Creating a loving place of beauty for my family to call home has always been important to me. Lately my thoughts have become more deeply focused on HOME and what the Creator of home desires of me. Because it talked of building a house the following portion of an article caught my attention this morning. Here's to building our home on The Rock and having it anchored in Hope.

From the loving arms of Home,
Abundantly Blessed

The following excerpt has been taken from the Elijah List website. The article in its entirety may be found at The Elijah List website. It is the prophetic word for March 14, 2017. 

"What Are 'Values Anchored Believers?' God Says We Need Them!"
James W. Goll, Franklin, TN
"...Every House Is Built on Something!
Listen to the Words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew 7:24–27 and the companion set of Scriptures in Luke 7:46-49.
"Therefore everyone who hears these Words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. But everyone who hears these Words of Mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
Jesus made it clear that we must be hearers AND doers of the Word of God. To withstand the winds and the waves that hit every house, family and society, we must be anchored in our values as Believers. (For more on this, see an article I released in February 2016 titled The Original W.W.W. – The Pathway to His Glory.)
Hebrews 6:19 gives us additional insight stating, "This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil."  I love the Word of God and how it teaches us so much when we compare one passage with another.
Hope is the positive expectation of good and the anchor to our soul (mind, will and emotions). When we drop the anchor of hope from the ship of our lives through the tumultuous waves of uncertain circumstances, we become immovable because we are connected to the rock of ages below...."


Snack Recipe

Hi! Have you heard of the Trim Healthy Mama plan? Enough men have used the plan for an alternative name of Totally Hot Man is floating around too. Anyway, I digress. As of a week ago, or so, THM has entered Abundance House. There are many recipes left to try, but I want to share one of our favorite snacks with you. This snack is not only delicious but quick and easy too. It could be used as a light dessert also.

Here it is:


  • 1/2 c. LOW FAT Cottage cheese
  • 1/2 c. Frozen Berries
  • sweetener to taste
  • dash of vanilla
Place ingredients in blender. Whip together until smooth. Place in parfait glass or bowl. Enjoy!


Extravagant Love

¹If I were to speak with eloquence in earth’s many languages, and in the heavenly tongues of angels, yet I didn’t express myself with love, my words would be reduced to the hollow sound of nothing more than a clanging cymbal.  1 Corinthians 13:1 The Passion Translation

Good Morning! I don't want my words to be the hollow sound of a clanging cymbal. Therefore, according to the word of God, they must be expressed with love. Valentine's Day was earlier this week. At Abundance House Valentine's Day is one of the most favorite of all holidays. It is an entire day devoted to the celebration of Love. For me personally it is the perfect opportunity to celebrate God, Who is Love, in all of His fullness. God is extravagant in His love to us, and Valentine's Day allows me to be extravagant in my love to others. Yet what if I made every day an opportunity to be extravagant in showering the love of God on others? What if I didn't use Valentine's Day as an "excuse" to do what I want to do all the time? What if I actually loved large every single day? Would it make a difference in the world around? in my community? in my family? in my home? in my own heart? 

Maybe this new year is the perfect time to find out what one person expressing themself in love looks like. I am sure slip-ups, mistakes, even total goofs will occur. Yet wouldn't it be interesting to look back one year from now and see whether or not one person intentionally walking about and expressing themself in Love made a difference? Being intentional in doing so is the key. Loving as God loves requires intentional deliberate decisions - and practice. Lots and lots of practice. Instead of the former name this blog had of Living Large on Less, we could title it A Year of Loving Large from out of God's Abundant Extravagance. What if a year of loving large became a way of life? What kind of difference would such a thing as that make? These are the questions I am asking myself during these early days of the new year. What about you? What questions are you asking yourself this year? More importantly still, what answers are you hearing your heart speak? 

Here's to loving large,
Abundantly Blessed


To His Name

"Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness."
 Psalm 115:1

The words to a hymn from my childhood were running through my heart so loudly yesterday that I had to dig out a hymnal, sit down at the piano, and play. 

"To God be the glory great things He hath done And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son
But purer and higher and greater will be
Our wonder our transport when Jesus we see!

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! 
Let the earth here His voice
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Let the people rejoice
Oh come to the Father through Jesus the Son
And give Him the glory great things He hath done"

Yes! Let the people rejoice! Great things He hath done! To His name be the glory! To God and God alone!

Rejoicing in His Greatness,
Abundantly Blessed


Winter's Grace

Crackling fires, steaming tea kettles, snowflakes stuck to windows, Cozy blankets, warm socks, brisk walks, crunchy steps, melting ice on the floor, hats and gloves scattered around where children leave them, boots heaped around the door, rosy cheeks, sparkling eyes, quick toboggan rides, firewood gathered, ax ringing, wood split and stacked, soup simmering, bread toasted, butter melted, hot cocoa leaving rings around the mouths of children, books read, pictures colored, games played, cards shuffled, and movies watched.


Popcorn becomes a delightful delicacy and promises of hot cocoa inspire the most reluctant to complete their lessons. Family gathers around to hear Papa read the Bread of Life that is also the Sword of the Spirit and sends prayers to heaven so sweet.

Sugar scrubs soften dry skin and the oil of the Holy Spirit softens dry hearts. The chirps of birds at the feeder cheer as the giggles of children delight. 

Mama Kitty purrs in a low rumble expressing supreme contentment and Abundantly Blessed mama would rumble like Mama Kitty, if she could, when sun beams shine warm on the wooden floor.

There is grace in the cold of Winter. It is a grace for all to gratefully receive at will. Will you receive daily blessings as a gift of grace from the hand of a loving Heavenly Papa? Even the puddles of melted ice on the floor? The ones that soak straight through a sock when found? Will you receive it as a gift? Will you? Will you decide that today, this day, instead of seeing mud and ice you will see proof of a warm shelter and evidence of provision instead of a mess of scattered crumbs? 

That is the exercise I am focusing on so intently here at the beginning of this new year. I am working out the muscles of gratefulness by choosing to see truth when there is temptation to be deceived. 

When I am tempted to be distressed by the messes that seem to abound, I am learning to resist this temptation by training myself to see what really is. Yes, there might be a puddle of dirty water by the door. Such puddles are proof that our home is a warm refuge from the cold outside. When I wipe up those puddles it is proof that I am healthy and physically able to care for those in our home. It is not a burdensome chore to care for those I love. 

Those crumbs that sometimes cover the counters bother a mama unless she sees truth. Those crumbs testify that there is food in the house for us to eat. We are not hungry. We have been fed. God has provided for our every need.

And the laundry...the dirty laundry. Dirty laundry shows we are clothed. We are not naked shivering out in the cold without adequate coverings. Not only are we clothed, judging by the size of the laundry pile, we are clothed very well. 

Will I see fly away hair, dry skin, wood chips, soaked socks, and muddy footprints and consider them burdens or will I see these things for what the really truly are, evidence of the abundant faithfulness and provision of God? 

Counting Winter's gifts of Grace,
Abundantly Blessed


A New Fit

Sometimes when a new year is just starting to edge its way in, when the new is attempting to shove itself into yesterday's rhythms, when nothing is the same yet it isn't quite different either sometimes a person can feel like they are sliding straight into the land of the overwhelmed. Sometimes. It is during these seasons of sometimes that a mama might find herself crawling up on the lap of her Abba Father and just sitting there snuggled close in His arms; she might also stay snuggled in for a very long while.

Perhaps some would say the mama who does this is "hiding out" in a desperate attempt to escape the sordid realities of "real" life such as bickering children, tired and cranky whiners, accidentally wet unders, among other things. They would be correct. But I have to wonder what better place to hide than the arms of the Loving Heavenly Father? Who else knows what is really going on? Who else knows what is in the heart of a moody pre-teen? Who else knows how to encourage a young boy and his older brothers that God's way is the best way? And Who but God Himself knows what "real" life is anyway? I know of no better place for hiding than the arms of God.  (See Psalm 91)

Sometimes just when the land of the overwhelmed looms largest God speaks through an email in an inbox. When that happens, the word must be shared. Such a word entered my inbox today. It came through this link: http://links.zondervancorporation.mkt4728.com/ctt?kn=21&ms=NTMxODczNDMS1&r=MjIyODIwMzc1MDA4S0&b=0&j=MTA4MjI4MjY1NwS2&mt=1&rt=0. If you too want to be blessed and encouraged you can click on the link and read about radical repentance and grace. It makes me wonder what alabaster jar I have to empty out at His feet. Maybe I am the alabaster jar made to be poured out in extravagant adoration and worship. Maybe you are too.

From the arms of Abba and the feet of Jesus,
Abundantly Blessed



 A post on abundance surely ought to be shared on a blog named Abundance House. Please enjoy the following encouraging word.

"We're Entering the Realm of Abundant Blessing & Overflow!"
Jesse Shamp, Nashville, TN

I pray that this will be a year of abundant blessing in your life! May the Lord release an abundance of anointing, miracles, grace and divine supply! The Lord has been speaking to me about the realm of abundant blessing as we come into this new year. Jesus said, "The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but I am come that they may have life and have it more abundantly" (John10:10).

We know that the enemy's strategy is to create destruction in our lives. Yet, Jesus said He came to give us abundant life! The word life is translated "Zoe" in the Greek, which means the God kind of life. You are called to live the God kind of life! This life is not a life of lack but a life of abundance; a life of overflow! Do not settle for anything that is not God's best! God wants the very best for His children! 

A Life of Overflow

"Ask, and you shall receive that your joy may be full" (John 16:24). It's the Lord's desire to give good gifts to His children. As the Word of God says, He wants to give us the very desires of our hearts (see Psalm 37:4). God spoke to me and said, "Jesse, I want to bring you into the realm of abundant blessing!"

I believe it's a word for you as well. God has been speaking to me about His Body and how He desires that the Church receive a shift in thinking to understand that God will not only supply our needs, but He wants to give us an abundant supply! The Bible says that my God shall supply all of your needs, according to His riches in glory (see Philippians 4:19). There is a place where God supplies your needs and He will sustain you! He will provide for you beyond a shadow of a doubt! Yet, there is a realm where God brings you into an abundant supply.
"Now to Him who is able to (carry out His purpose and) do super-abundantly more than all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams)." (Ephesians 3:20 Amp)

Raise Your Expectations and Look to Him

God would have us to lift our expectation and believe in Him, not only to supply our needs but for God to bring us into a place of abundance and overflow (see 1 Corinthians 10:1). I began to think of the children of Israel and how they were set free from the bondage of Pharaoh, and the Lord brought them out of Egypt with a strong and mighty hand. The Lord sent His cloud!
The purpose of God sending the cloud of glory was to provide for the children of Israel. They ate manna everyday from the cloud as they were in the wilderness. The cloud kept them from sickness, and also protected them from their enemies. This is what God's cloud and His presence does in our own lives. Yet, the wilderness was not the final destination; the final destination was the Promised Land. A land that flows with milk and honey—a place of abundant supply and overflow!

If you recall, it was right before Joshua and the children of Israel took the land of Canaan that the manna ceased from coming. "And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year." Joshua 5:12.

You may ask, "Why did the Lord stop sending the manna, right before they were going to take the land of Canaan?" Because God wanted to bring them out of the realm of just enough, and lead them into the realm of abundant blessing!

I declare abundance and overflow today in every area of your life! I speak breakthrough over your life: Breakthrough in finances, in relationships, in opportunity, in Jesus' mighty name!

Let abundance and breakthrough be yours in 2017! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Dough Snowflake

Here is one of the snowflakes we made out of a cornstarch baking powder dough. The dough is much whiter in color than typical salt doughs. Please pretend the hot glue doesn't show. Thank You. Recipes for the dough can be found online. Any shape cutter can be used. Valentine hearts would be beautiful.


Food for the New Year

Slow cookers full of bubbling soups and breadsticks in a basket, this is food for a New Year. Later, when the afternoon is going by, brownie sundaes fill the hunger for a little bit of sweet.

Simple abundance can be oh so extravagant on a new winters day.
