Blessed is the woman who trusteth in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is. For she shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Ruth Bennett – “Grace in the Midst of Hard”

Hello from the sunny state of Florida! My name is Ruth Bennett. I was born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. I am the fourth child in a family of ten. I was homeschooled through highschool. At age nineteen I moved to Taiwan to serve a year as an assistant English teacher in the Elementary school system. When I moved back to the states my family had moved to Lancaster PA and I joined them there. I spent several years pursuing a college degree online while also teaching school at our local church school. I love traveling and was also able to spend some time in the Middle East.

 

At twenty-five, I was swept off my feet to the plains of Iowa by a young man named Ian Bennett. We lived three and a half, very full, years in our church community there until God very clearly moved us to a little town in Lake Placid, Florida, where we now reside.

 

The story of my journey through the last few years is a story of finding God’s grace in the middle of difficult circumstances.

Sherri Graber – “One Itchy Little World”

My name is Sherri Graber and I am married to Jeff Graber.  I fell in love at fifteen and married at eighteen. We have been married for twelve years and are raising our three children in Mississippi where we were both born and raised. Our children are our biggest blessing and we strive daily to care for their hearts and point them to Christ.

I am a homeschooling Mama so I am kept busy with teaching them and running them to their extracurricular activities which include soccer and choir. Jeff is a diesel mechanic and works from a shop in our backyard.

My hobbies include anything artsy; painting, sewing, small reupholstering projects, etc. I also love repurposing things and when I have the time, you will find me turning pallets into clocks, sweaters into pillows and old barn boards into shelves.

I hope this podcast can be an encouragement to other Mothers who are going through similar situations and most of all bring honor and glory to Jesus.

 

One of my favorite things to do is sit and paint. This is a Christian-stay-at-home mom whose art I absolutely love that I would like to introduce to you:

HedgehogNHare Etsy Shop

I’m offering a little giveaway to this shop. For more details click on the Giveaway page here on our Women For His Honor Website and be sure to check Facebook on April 12th when the winner is announced!

Just click on the highlighted word and it will take you directly to the website I have suggested.

The one is the National Jewish Health website. I got a lot of ideas and suggestions off of their website.

Allergy testing is something I highly recommend.
Another one is Dr Richard Aron. I did not find out about him until we were through our eczema journey but he’s been extremely helpful to many people with eczema. He is actually from another country but he consults with his patients via internet so a lot of people from all around the world have found help through him.

The Merry Clinic is another website that I used. I had mentioned the herbs that I used that were formulated specifically for children with eczema and this is the company that I ordered them from. So I will put links to more things on the blog if you want to check over there for the rest of the things that we used.

I used Metagenics brand of Probiotics but I know there are many good brands out there. I would just make sure that whatever you use is free of dairy.

Aloe vera juice.

Digestive enzymes.

Cod liver oil

The shirts that I made for Campbell were similar to these that are called “Scratch Sleeves”. They really are helpful for protecting your child’s skin while they’re sleeping.

The Eczema Company has a lot of clothes, lotions & products that look helpful. I haven’t actually used them myself but it is a good website for ideas & guidance.

One thing that I’ve found very helpful for eczema is diaper cream with zinc oxide in it. Desitin has one that is 40% zinc oxide but there are others that have it, too.

Wet wraps can be helpful to eczema. But like everything else I’ve recommended, please consult with your doctor first.

Pensive Poem by MarySue Moss

 

 

Between May 1 and May 31 there are a handful of reasons to party
Mother’s Day,
Graduations,
(from
Preschool,
Kindergarten,
Eighth grade,
High school,
College
And/or nurses training)
And WEDDINGS.
Fifty years ago, Jerry and I were married on a May Saturday
In a week that celebrated four family graduations,
Including mine from Iowa Methodist School of Nursing.
Busy week, that.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I used to let May slip into June
With a picnic, a ball game, and a day off from work.
I thought Memorial Day trips to the cemetery
Were for old people visiting their even older deceased parents.
TODAY
There is a special piece of real estate in the northwest corner
Of the Brethren Cemetery
With five stones marking the Castle and Moss families
With resting place- dates starting in 2001 through 2015.
Our husbands didn’t quite make it to three score years and ten.
Our three children didn’t make it to thirty.
And so,
MAY,
I’ll give you the respect you deserve,
And honor the holiday you claim.
I will do the graduation parties
And celebrate 50 years from nurses’ training.
I will also shed a few tears over five memorial stones
That have all the freshness that a decade and a half can offer.
Welcome, May, you are a treasure.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Psalm 135:13 Thy name, O LORD, endureth forever; and thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.
