• “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

“Matthew and I have been married for over 21 years, and have seven precious children. We live in beautiful East Texas on 9 acres on the outskirts of Tyler. We are best friends and grow deeper in love every day. Matthew preaches and writes and has ministered to the Lord’s people, particularly those in house churches, for nearly 29 years. He is a regular contributor to Brush Arbor Quarterly magazine, a publication devoted to repentance, revival, and restoration. I love being a “keeper at home” and serving the needs of our family. I am a regular contributor to the women’s publication An Encouraging Word and share in women’s conferences and gatherings from time to time. Our lives are knit together with saints here where we live, and we are blessed to see the Lord working in/through/among us and laying the foundation for building a lampstand in our area.

Of the many simple things we enjoy as a family, just being together ranks at the top. We love doing all the many jobs and activities of daily life together, seeking to make the most of every opportunity to share life, learn together, teach & disciple our children, and make memories. We especially enjoy gardening and working together on our land. And we absolutely love homeschooling our children and feel very honored to get to train, educate, and bring them forth to be men and women of God. ” – Maranatha Chapman

The Chapmans also have a great ministry called Kindling Productions.

Verse of the Day

For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. — Hebrews 10:30-31 (NKJV)
