Welcome to My Blog

Greetings and welcome to my blog! My name is Lyndsay Lambert, and my heart's desire is for this blog to be an encouragement to younger women, as Paul directed in Titus 2:3-5.

Put On Your Oxygen Mask!

Put On Your Oxygen Mask
At a recent Bible study, a young mom told us that she knew she was supposed to put her husband and children first, but then she asked if it was wrong for her to feel like she needed some time alone, away from the demands of her family.

Last week I wrote that we need to get away from the selfishness encouraged by our culture—that it’s NOT all about me. Today I’d like to talk about the balance of that: just where do I fit on my priority list?

There will be times when we have to take care of ourselves in order to be able to take care of those whom God has put under our care.Continue Reading

Is It Ever “All About Me”?

Is it Ever "All About Me"?

Have you ever watched the reality television show, Bridezilla? I am not a fan of reality shows, but periodically I see bits and pieces of this show. I am always appalled by the selfishness portrayed by the brides! Ugh.

The pressure that our culture puts on families about what children “need” can cause us to put our relationships with our husbands on the back burner.Continue Reading

Making God Our Top Priority

Making God Our Top PriorityIt’s interesting to me that in several conversations with different women lately, organization has been a frequent topic of discussion. Obviously this is something that is a constant concern for many of us!

I think it always comes back to doing the most important things first. (See more of my thoughts on this.)

Priorities are very personal. The priorities in my life may not be the same as those in yours. However, for believers I’ve found that we can all pretty much agree that God should be our top priority.

That sounds good, doesn’t it? But what does that mean practically speaking?Continue Reading
