Creating a War Room

Awhile back I had the opportunity to watch the movie War Room on DVD.  I don't always like to watch Christian movies because some have doctrinal issues I don't agree with or the cast may have lifestyles that are contrary to God's Word.
So anyway, I came away with the idea of creating one's own war room or prayer closet. I must say at the time, I didn't think I really needed to have a quiet space to pray because I usually just have my quiet time in my bedroom in the mornings.
Well that has changed recently and now I am done! Satan can mess with me all he wants but when he messes with my family, this means WAR!

I've decided to clear a small area in our walk-in closet for my war room. I'm still working on it. I have clutter and it so happens this weeks Flylady zone is the master area which is the bedroom, closet and bath. Thankfully the tasks this week are things I've done already so I can work on my war room space. When it's complete, I will post a picture of what I've done.

What does one need for a war room?
1.Space! It doesn't need to be huge. Do you have a closet that has stuff than can be put somewhere else? How about a spare bedroom? Do you have a space in your bedroom, that you can corner off to get alone with God?

2. Bible and pen.

3.Post it notes for writing names and prayer requests

4. A pillow for kneeling on or a small chair

5. If you are a headcovering lady, a veil or scarf if you don't cover all the time. I don't always get dressed right away when I get up in the mornings so I will have my quiet time in my jammies.

6. Tissues because many times we will be in tears.

7. A listening heart. Sometimes we are so busy talking to God we forget to take the time to listen.

I hope this has helped any of you who want to create your own prayer area. For more ideas go to

  2. I've not watched the movie, but I liked the book. If you haven't read the book yet, I would highly recommend it. I can't wait to watch the movie.

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

"We don't  need to submit to …

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

(http://thesimplewoman.blogspot.com)
 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
