113Restoration.com is principally about restoring the Biblical family structure. There are many tools in the adversary’s bag that are used to tear family apart. One such tool, often unrecognized, is work related.
While God’s plan for Adam was to have dominion and to be fruitful and multiply, it wasn’t for Adam to go one way and his helper, Chava, to go another. Rather, evidenced all through Scripture, families worked together, whether agriculturally or in a trade. Simply, families with a unified vision, are much more stable against the attacks of the adversary and much more resilient against the instability of the economy if some simple knowledge is applied.
I just reviewed a book by Rory Groves on natsab.com that I strongly recommend as a clear roadmap to building a family friendly source of income. Durable Trades not only explains why a family business in the ‘durable trades’ is great wisdom, but details over 60 durable trades and their respective pluses and minuses!! Of even better news is that many can be worked simultaneously further diversifying and securing family income while strengthening your family through shared vision, work, and interaction.

Several countdowns are running at our house. There’s the countdown to our third trip to Israel. We also have the countdown to the 2 p.m. launch of Ten Parts in the King on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at M. Judson Booksellers in Greenville, SC.

That is a LOT happening in our neck o’the woods…. But, there is more!
Recently, co-author Al McCarn and I have been interviewed a couple times about Ten Parts in the King and not long ago were filmed for a major Christian TV web program that will soon be released. And, someone (thank you, Laura!) sent us a couple memes to help with promotion (hint, hint). We have those on our Media Page and included below. Continue reading “Counting down the days…. (And, I’m EXCITED!!!)”
I have recently begun reading a small book titled Joseph is Alive by B. Michael Blaine. Published in 1995, I am very surprised that I had not heard of it until Dorothy Wilson mentioned it on a recent visit.
As I read yesterday morning the author made a statement that shocked me and piqued my curiosity. He said,
Bethlehem, a village in the hill country of Judah, was given to Ephraim, a northern tribe, for a possession. (pg.22)
I dropped my book and grabbed my Bible, but didn’t see anything obvious. Thinking, “how did I miss that,” I continued reading as Blaine began to assemble a compelling case that indeed, Bethlehem, or part of it, belongs to Ephraim!! Continue reading “Does Bethlehem belong to Ephraim?”
