Women's History Month- Harriet Tubman

 March is Women's History  Month. Last year I attempted to write posts on godly women instead of political figures but COVID caused  our state to be shut down and I  was preoccupied with all that was going on at the time. I would like to try again by this month by writing a post each week by a woman of faith. I don't want to post about political women's figures because most of them have ungodly lifestyles or have political views that go against the Word of God.

This week the spotlight  is on Harriet Tubman. I had no idea she had a strong faith in God.  In school we only focused on her rescuing slaves and her Underground Railroad. From what I read about her life she trusted God to lead her and keep her and the slaves safe. She and none of the slaves she rescued were ever caught. If they had been they would most certainly be hanged. There are many resources available to learn more  about this remarkable woman. I just finished reading a historical fiction novel called  The Tubman Train by Doug Peter which I highly recommend.

  1. 'Trusted God to lead her and keep her ...'

    May that be true of us all, may we be as courageous as she was.

  2. That sounds like a book I should read. I'm not surprised that Harriet Tubman was a Christian with her willingness to put her life on the line for others. What a remarkable woman she was. I wish I were half as brave and resourceful.
    Blessings,

  3. I believe her strong faith in God is why she was able to do all she did to help other slaves during her time. When I was homeschooling my son we used to read books from YWAM. Here is one for Harriet Tubman that I think I would be a great resource for kids and adults https://www.ywampublishing.com/p-421-heroes-of-historybrharriet-tubman-freedombound.aspx. Think I'll ask my son if he would like to add her story to his collection.

  4. What a wonderful woman of God - she could not have done what she did without Him and her unwavering faith - thank you for highlighting this remarkable woman

  5. I am both the retired homeschooling mom of seven and someone who probably voted differently than you. I say that only because God has anointed many women in many ways. My Hope is that we come together to build a better world according to the Gospel.

    Some of the women in women's history have been keepers of the home and some have had a political impact. I am glad that I can vote. Aren't you?

Book Review-Biblical Minimalism By Cheryl E. Smith and Giveaway

 Today I'm pleased to post my review of Biblical Minimalism. I was so happy to be a part of Cheryl's review team and receive a copy of her book. In her book Cheryl shares about testimony of how the Lord led her and her family to sell their home, letting go of unneeded physical things and move into a rental property.  She talks about the difficulty of letting go of things and the Lord asking her " Do you love this more than Me?" Her experience with moving and trying to hang on to not just physical items but also relationships that were damaging emotionally and spiritually.  This book really made me think about our experience moving and trying to figure out what to keep and what to let go. That's the topic for a separate post. There is so much meat in this book with lots of scriptures that I think would be good for memorizing and I highly recommend Biblical Minimalism. I'm planning on reading it again. Now for the giveaway. It's simple if you would like to w

What I Will Be Reading Instead

 In my last post I wrote about being cautious about what we read in the media. One of my goals this year is to read books. I've always had a passion for reading. So Lord willing,  here are few books I hope to read or I'm actually reading this year. I was going to snap pictures of them all with the tablet but saw it was too much trouble. Of course I will read my Bible. That's part of my quiet time with the Lord. Also you will find I'm one of those people who have more than one book going. I crochet the same way. I have several crochet projects going at the same time.😊 Physical Books: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen- I'm reading this right now. Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan  Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery - My 20 year old wants me to read this to her like I did when she and her sisters were little.  Our copy is well worn and loved. Anne of Green Gables is my favorite children's book. A Gown of Spanish Lace by Janette Oke. I don't usually r

Thank You and End of a Era

First of all thank you to everyone who commented on my Valentine craft. I had fun making them. So it's been a week now that Aunt Jemima has become The Pearl Milling company. That sweet face I loved childhood has now been replaced by in my opinion an ugly building. They are removing Uncle Ben's face and changing the name to Ben's Original and I hear they are removing the black chef's face from Cream of Wheat cereal. So companies really think that removing people of color from labels is going to stop racism?  I think not. There will always be racism against black people, racism against white people, racism against Hispanic and racism against all the other cultures God created. And it will continue until Jesus returns. Oh what a glorious day that will be!
