As we meditate upon the Word of God, we experience a transformation (a shift) in our perspective, in how we interpret what is going on around us, and in what is truly important in our day-to-day lives. This transformation leads to a clarity of vision, understanding, and purpose. It affects both the little moments of our days and the life-altering ones, the interactions we have both with our loved ones and those who are a challenge to love, and how we choose to conduct ourselves both in our public and private lives.

Will you join me in the quest to shift our perspective upward, towards Him?

    Wisdom for Wives: Subtle Shifts to Help Make Your Marriage a Priority

    Wisdom for Wives: Subtle Shifts to Help Make Your Marriage a Priority

    The Proverbs 31 woman was a woman who blessed her family and honored her God.  From a quick reading of the chapter, we can see that despite leading a busy and full life, she was above all a devoted wife.  In this 3rd episode of the Proverbs 31 series, "Finding a Woman of Worth: A Portrait of a Woman," we consider eight subtle, practical shifts that can help us prioritize our marriages in the midst of our own busy and full lives.

    Getting Value or Giving Value: A Look at Worth, Identity, and Usefulness

    Getting Value or Giving Value: A Look at Worth, Identity, and Usefulness

    In the second episode of the Proverbs 31 series, "Finding a Woman of Worth: A Portrait of a Woman," we consider verse 10 which describes this woman's worth as far above rubies.  Does this mean that her worth is derived from being such an incredible wife, mother, or business woman, and if so, what does it mean for us?  This episode serves as a reminder of where our worth, value, and identity is truly found as we consider two key "perspective shifts."

    A Woman of Virtue: Good News for Us All!

    In this first part of our series, "Finding a Woman of Worth: A Portrait of a Woman", based upon Proverbs 31, we aim to answer the questions: what does it mean to be a woman of virtue, can even I become this kind of woman, and why would I want to.  

    Whether you have no interest in becoming a virtuous woman - or you think you can't possibly measure up to such a woman, this episode will challenge your thoughts as to what it means, what it looks like, and why it's a privilege to be such a woman.

    When You Wonder if He Cares (The Good Shepherd)

    When You Wonder if He Cares (The Good Shepherd)

    Click here for this episode's show notes.

    All it took was one look at a flock of sheep to know everything you needed to know about their shepherd - whether they were well cared for or whether they were neglected.  In fact, the hallmark of a shepherd was the attentive care given to his sheep.  It's no wonder that Jesus called Himself the Good Shepherd!  Yet, just like it was for His disciples and even His friend, Martha, it is easy for us to forget - or question - if He truly cares for us, especially when faced with difficult situations or difficult (or perceived as difficult) people.  In this episode we consider the special ways in which our Shepherd takes care of us, His children, even when faced with difficulties of our own.

Helped me truly shift my perspective

All the episodes so far have blessed me as I have listened in God’s perfect timing in situations I truly needed a perspective shift. I love Cara Blondo’s practical applications without departing from God’s truth. Plus I like her happy music 😁 it always makes me smile.
