The Gabby Mom Mission #1 *EDITED*

My first mission as a Gabby Mom was to read and review the book called True Treasures: Ten Years of TEACH Magazine presented by Mrs. Lorrie Flem.  Lorrie felt led by the Lord to put this collaboration together of articles written in TEACH Magazine by some of their best authors.  Lorrie’s own mother was a large part of the TEACH team for many years.

The book was split into 6 different chapters that touched on each area of importance in a Christian woman’s life.  

In the first chapter called Jewels That Make the Heart Sparkle I read a great piece by Mrs. Lorrie Flem called His Wheel = His Will.  This brought to me a wonderful reminder that we are the clay and we can not form ourselves.  Therefore, we need God’s loving, masterful hands to fix the problems that we face in ourselves.  We can not change ourselves, but He can.

There are chapters that cover marriage, parenting, homemaking,k homeschooling and godly living.  I kept notes while I was reading each article and came out with 2 pages of notes that have combined information from all of the chapters!  One of my favorites that I wrote down to keep note of for myself is Bible Verses to Pray for Your Children by Author Unknown.

I also found some useful and inspiring quotes in True Treasures.  Two of my favorite are both said by Lorrie Flem.  “Satan is thrilled when we think of our jobs as a never-completed to-do list.  He wants us to feel trapped in our roles, defeated; and unable to see beyond today.  But, as always, God has a different opinion.  In I Kings 17:17, God calls us ‘the mistress of the house’ and the Hebrew word for mistress means to be master or to have dominion over.  You are in charge of your home.  This is an awesome responsibility, because your job is to make your home a little picture of God’s big picture.”  Doesn’t that just put it into perspective?
