James Week 6 James 3: 13-18

Welcome to Week 6!! This week we take a look at different types of wisdom and what types of fruit they produce.






Study Questions for Week 6:


  1. Where is your work rooted? Is it rooted in Godly wisdom or worldly wisdom?
    1. Take a moment to take an inventory of the fruit that your work is producing lately. What areas are going well and which areas could use some work? 
  2. Have you ever struggled with selfish ambition or a bitter envy? James says that those are related to the type of wisdom we are pursuing. Proverbs 4: 20-27 gives us some ways to combat those struggles.  
    1. What areas from the Proverbs 4 passage stick out to you and how can you put them into practice?
  3. James has a list of attributes of Godly wisdom in verse 17. 
    1. Are any of them things that you want more of in your life? Which ones and why?
    2. Are any of them things that you struggle with? Take some time to explore which ones you wrinkle your nose at and ask God to show you why.
  4. Verse 18 says Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. What do you think is the difference between a peacemaker and a peacekeeper?
    1. Which one describes you? Are you willing to make peace or are you just trying to keep things where they are?
  5. Week 6 Challenge: Ask God for wisdom and then be on the look out for the areas that James says are evident when we have Godly wisdom.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together. Reserve 2 tbsp for garnish. Press mixture onto bottom and sides of a greased 9-inch springform pan. Chill in the freezer while preparing the filling. Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth and light. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and cornstarch until just blended. S

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
