I provided links where some of these videos are written. The story I read was written and so is the 30 days thing.

In the space just below the teacup pic and above the video is the link where the video can be read. That is what I was reading from in the video.

I listened intently to this morning’s homemaker radio as I baked biscuits and bread. Thank you so much for the encouragement and the reading! The story, “The Wife” resonated with me, in that I’m trying to uplift and encourage my husband. He told me this morning, “Stop worrying and stay away from the news!” I thought it was funny that you said the same thing in your video! The biscuits did encourage him!

I appreciate you and your perspective! It does help to realize that the sky is not falling. God has brought His people through tough times in the past! I’m a homeschool mom. These next few years will be important in the lives of our children! I’m working on hope chests for them, even the boys, to prepare for their future. So, your focus on hope also reiterated what God had already been teaching me. Thank you for your teaching!

I’m focusing on memory verses this week, cleaning for spring, and listening and learning the words to favorite hymns. What a blessing this gift of time has been. Praise the Lord!

Bless you, sweet lady!

Stacy, homeschooling will certainly build your faith and confidence, as you let go of other support structures and turn to the God given basics of your home and family. It will bring out something great and good in you and your family as you lose your dependence on man made social structures and man made support entities.

Hello Lydia from a listener and friend in Alabama. I just want to say how much I appreciate your videos and how much joy they bring me. As well as being able to keep me busy and staying on task they also just give me delight, especially now when our lives are a little different from the usual. I do especially like when you read to us , and the Allison stories are great.
I listen in the mornings as I make the bed, tidy the bathroom and kitchen and sometimes later in the day when ironing.
God bless you,
Marianne

Thank you ladies. I like seeing what you accomplish. This is what these are for. I'll be reading again today but Miss Lily (of the Valley) has not sent me a new story yet ;-)
