"Christ died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf...Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them."
2 Corinthians 5:15,17-19

If the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed...
If you continue in My Word... you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."
- Jesus, The Gospel of John, from chapter 8:31-36

"It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. . . For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. . . the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law." - Galatians 5:1,13,22,23

"There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free . . . " - Romans 8:1,2a

"Not that I have already obtained it or already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. . . . one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians3:12-14

"If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. So then we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh...For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, 'Abba! Father!' "

"Be strong and let your heart take courage,
all you who hope in the Lord."
Psalm 31:24

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD
And whose trust is the LORD.
For he will be like a tree planted by the water,
That extends its roots by a stream
And will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in a year of drought
Nor cease to yield fruit."
Jeremiah 17:7,8 (2011 personal focus verse)

Psalm 16:10 " Lord, You will make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy."

    Hi there! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I was thinking that Beck might be my next book to blog my way through. I have a few books in mind (that were dusty on my shelf) and I may just eenie, meenie, minie, moe my way to picking one. I will say, making the commitment to get through the book really has made a huge, huge difference in my life. I have learned so much about myself.

    Hi Freelady,
    I'm glad to meet you. I hope you love the Beck Diet Solution. It was really a big part of what finally got me on the right track! Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!

    I notice that you are into home schooling. We used to know a few families that did homeschooling when my sons were in middle school because they met on the regional math team. Some of the homeschool families banded together to make a team (similar to the junior high school teams) and they did very well!

    I am a math tutor. I have often thought it might be interesting to try to tap into the homeschool market because I believe that by the time the kids get to high school level, it might be past the kind of math a parent can handle alone. Do you know if any of your homeschool friends use tutors? Just curious.

    So Happy New Year and WELCOME!
