How Courage Opens Up the Way for Miracles {A Guest Post by Sue Domingos)

COURAGE is a much-needed quality of spirit for all of us as we face the challenges along the way on our journeys. 

The very first thing God asked me to do soon after I was saved that required GREAT COURAGE was for me to go to my alcoholic and abusive father and ask for forgiveness for my responses to his actions. Whoa…I had only been a Christian for a short time when the Holy Spirit encountered me, asking me to go and ask his forgiveness.  Looking back I can see that I would have gone no further without this being taken care of. God knew. So I obeyed. It was NOT easy.

Nesting the New Season of the Empty Nest – A Guest Post by Randi Miles

Nesting the new season of the empty nest… you read that right.  It came to me recently that this is exactly what I am doing.  Going a bit crazy really trying to organize and prepare to re-enter the workforce.  After being home with my boys and homeschooling them for the last 15 years it is all about to change.

CHANGE, I have a love/hate relationship with change.  Honestly, I get bored and welcome change, but I prefer it be on my terms and never too big of a change if I were to have it my way. Read the rest of this entry

When Death Donates Life – A Guest Post by Colleen Cooper #donatelife

I am both thrilled and humbled to share this story with you from my sister, Colleen. April is National Donate Life Month. As you’ll read below, my sister is all too familiar with organ donation since her 7-year-old son donated both of his corneas and four heart valves when he passed away. This would be how the hope of life would come from a very traumatic death. Colleen, you will always be a hero to me. I am so incredibly blessed to be your sister, friend and honored that you would trust me with your story. Become a donor and read on…

Today Is the Day to Believe What I Don’t Believe – A Guest Post by Kelly Smith

This post, Your Best Story Happened 10 Minutes Ago, seems to have started something. In that post, I explained how Liz Curtis Higgs said, “Your best story will happen in the next 10 minutes.” That quote inspired me. There was quite a buzz about it on Twitter and the quote maker herself, Liz Curtis Higgs, even wrote back to me about it. I was SO honored and I will admit, did a little fangirl dance. I love Liz Curtis Higgs so much. I also love my friend, Kelly Smith from Mrs. Disciple. Kelly graciously sent her “My Last 10 Minutes” story to share with you. I just love it when friends come over to share. Thank you, Kelly, you are welcome anytime.

I know you’re going to love this story just as much as I do.

Dear Future Daughter In Law – A Guest Post by Julie Presley

Welcome my new friend, blogger and author, Julie Presley! We “bumped” into each other in cyberland, introduced by a mutual friend, and I couldn’t be more grateful. She is the author of the Christian romance novel, Stones of Remembrance and Nor Forsake, which I have read, devoured and loved. Her heart is for women to experience freedom in Christ-centered romance but the biggest piece of her heart is dedicated to her two sons, as you will see as you read her words. Thank you, Julie, for sharing with us here at EPFH. You can find more of Julie’s writings at JuliePresley.com. Subscribe to her mailing list and keep up with news about her upcoming novel.)

Please welcome, LaRae Humes, as she shares this beautiful and heartfelt prayer for her young daughter for this new year of life.

Prayer is the very best thing we can do for our children. Thank you, LaRae, for sharing your heart with us. It is a true joy to have you with us.
