Hello, dear friends. I’d like to invite you to listen to this week’s podcast. “Terri’s Trinkets and Toys.”
We invite you to the kitchen table this week as we’re chatting about Bibles, books, Barbies, and more!
Looking at the armor of God found in Ephesians Chapter Six, we talk about the shield of faith and the fiery arrows of the devil. We discuss the reason Paul says, “Above all this, take up your shield of faith.” And, we take a closer look at the word “shield” in that context to see how it’s slightly different from your average piece of armor.
Note: if you don’t have an Apple device, you can also find us on Google Podcasts: click here.
Today’s Scattered Seeds
The other night I was trying to sleep. It was 2:30 am and my goofy husband decided to put “Newborn Baby Crying,” on his phone app for my listening pleasure. It reminded me of days gone by, and the many sleepless nights we had been through.
Those days were some of the hardest, and yet it seems that’s when the babies were sweetest. One little smile could make me forget just how tired and exhausted I was.
That’s how life is some days. The stress of everyday life can be taxing, exhausting, and tough. Sometimes we go down difficult paths, but then there are days that outshine them all. The days that remind us it was worth the hard work. The moments that tell us hard work pays off.
Let’s not trade one day for another, rather let us value them both. May we cherish the days that lead us to grow, that teach us to trust, and remind us of the working power of God.

When you are going through difficult times, look for the beauty of growth. See what God is teaching you, how you can grow from this, and what you may need to exercise (i.e. faith, patience, love, etc.)
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7, NIV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
