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.

Lord, Fill My Mouth With Worthwhile Stuff
and Nudge Me When I’ve Said Enuff!

For example, yesterday I was visiting with a couple of young friends. We were discussing a certain style that’s popular today. One of the women mentioned that she hadn’t decided yet what she thought about the style, and I spoke up and said in no uncertain terms that I didn’t like it.

Then I remembered that one of the young ladies was wearing it. Oops!Continue Reading

Never Forget!

Never Forget - Twin Towers on 9/11
Have you thought lately about how many people don’t really know about or remember the terrorist attack on the United States on 9/11/2001?

Thursday is Patriot Day and the 13th anniversary of 9/11, so anyone younger than 13 years old wasn’t even alive when it happened. Add to those youngsters the people who were so young that they either don’t remember it at all or very well, and you have quite a number of people. I think we can safely say that many people into their early 20s don’t have the memory and/or understanding of what happened on 9/11.

I recently listened to an audiobook, Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero by Michael Hingson and Susy Flory. It’s a true story of Michael Hingson’s experiences on that day. I think reading this book together with your children is a good way to teach them about this part of our history.

I hesitated to get the book when I first saw it, because, unlike those younger people, I remember all too well what happened that fateful day and I don’t handle graphic details about it very well. It still hurts too much.Continue Reading

Back to School Bible Study!

Schools started in my hometown this week. As people are setting up their new schedules, a lot of Bible studies are gearing up as well.

In July I talked about “Avoiding Spiritual Starvation.” As people are making their fall plans, I thought this might be a good time to talk about what Bible studies have helped me the most.

Through the years I have participated in many different types of studies. I have attended a ladies’ study in which one person taught on whatever was on her heart; I have learned from teachers like Beth Moore, completing homework and watching DVDs with other ladies. We have studied books that had chapters to read and then questions to answer.Continue Reading

He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands!

whole world
Yesterday I was reading in Psalm 46 in my quiet time (def: time alone with God in prayer and in the Word, preferably daily).

This psalm starts off with a verse we often teach our children: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” I think it’s a great verse to apply personally, since it reminds us that we can cry out to Him in times of personal need and He will be with us and help us.

However, yesterday as I was reading the whole psalm, I was impressed that in context the psalm is really talking about nations.

I don’t know about you, but I get pretty concerned when I look at the direction “the nations” are going these days. The nightly news is always bad. There are drug cartels, terrorists (last night on the news they said there are twice as many terrorist groups as there were 10 years ago)—well, suffice it to say that evil seems to be running rampant. And it’s not just in one or two nations; it’s worldwide! Continue Reading
