Welcome to this week's video. I talk about the importance of looking for God in the little things in life.
Too often we can be looking for the big things and waiting on those answers for the big prayers we have been diligently praying, that we miss seeing God at work in the everyday.
I share two very amazing God divine appointments in my life recently and encourage you all to not overlook or downplay those little things. The little things often have just as much importance or impact as the big things and in some cases even more.
In Him, Mae Renfroe
It's a new year! May we look forward to all the new things this year will hold!
Look for new opportunities and new ideas for evangelism and outreach. Be open to new things God has for you to do or new places He wants you to go.
He just needs eager servants, obedient believers, and devoted followers!
Here is a link to the video I mentioned to David Platts message at Passion Conference 2022. It's very convicting and powerful message for our time.
May each one of us be found faithfully living out the purpose of God in our lives!
We must work the work of God while we still have time. And remember just as Jesus is we too are the light of the world.
Hey there, and welcome to this video.
I recap a bit in 2021 and give encouragement and inspiration to make the most of 2022. Inviting you to a more intimate relationship with God. Putting off the things of the world. So that we can be vessels for God's use. May we be found faithfully doing things God has called us to do while we yet have time.
' Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.' 2 Timothy 2:19-22 KJV
Be inspired today to seek more of God and please and honor Him in everything and every area of your life. Keep shining your light for the world to see!!

Homeschooling. Housekeeping. Working on my book. Organizing and packing for our trip to Texas.
Then our trip to Texas. Unpacking. Back to schooling. Back to working on my book. Schooling. Book editing. Schooling. More book editing.
That's been my life.
But good news! My book is nearly ready for uploading to the global network!

Hey there, Welcome to this video and to my channel.
Today I'm talking about homeschooling.
And how we are doing things a bit more relaxed and taking a different approach to learning and homeschooling this year.
there's so many different options and learning styles that works for each child, and that is the joy and freedom of homeschooling.
What works for one may not work for another.
And you learn as you go. I hope you find this encouraging.
And please feel free to connect with me over on my website and blog, and for additional resources I have there.
Hey you all!!
I'm so happy to announce that my latest book is in the works! And in fact is nearing completion. Praise the Lord!
This is a very time consuming project for me being a busy homeschooling mom, but I'm very excited about it just the same. And can't wait for it to be finished and ready for you.
There is some really great and powerful content in this book to encourage you in your journey regardless of what you may be going through in life.
Watch this video for more details about my book!
Look for Holding On To Hope coming later this fall!
We got out of quarantine! So we went camping! Hopefully you will enjoy this vlog of our camping up in northern Alberta, Canada.
Hey, and welcome to this week's video!!
I'm talking about our 14 day quarantine from having just traveled to Canada from Texas.
It has me just a bit upset having to quarantine like this when we are all perfectly well and healthy.
and we are missing out on stuff.
Like the kids Bible camp, going camping with my mom and sister, or just going down to the river. it's a bummer.
Though even in this we have much to be thankful for.
thankful for our good health, for my family, for a safe and peaceful place to live ( there is alot oh turmoil in the world right now) and that I have God as my Hope and My Help!!
I also mention and fix something I said in my last video.
I let mothers know that being a mother is one of the greatest things you do.
It's great when families can be an outreach out side the home, but what we do in the home is so very vital, and is not less than.
And it's our first place of outreach.
To read my article Six Secrets to Living a Joyfilled Life please look here on my channel or visit my website and blog.
And keep an outlook for my upcoming book Holding on to Hope.
Our families story of loss and the hope that keeps them going.
This book is coming fall 2021.
Back in our Alberta home!!
in this video I give more details of our trip up from Texas, about how the spit tests we did didn't go as expected, and our 14 day quarantine.
Traveling is not what it use to be pre-covid for sure, I guess it's easier for those that have the vaccine, but getting much tougher on the rest of us.
if you haven't already go watch part of Our ROAD trip from Texas to Alberta.
For those of you following my youtube channel and wanted to see pictures and videos from our recent trip here you are!!
Part one vlog of our road trip from Texas to Alberta, Canada. This video covers days one and two of our 4 day road trip.
It contains video and pictures of sights and updates along the way.
I was going to post this video along the way, but didn't have high-speed internet to post it until we got home here to Alberta.
Now I will do another video to update how the rest of our trip went, how the the free tests didn't end up working out for us, and how the border crossing went.
There will be a few pics to go with it too.

Hey there busy mothers!
Do you get discouraged once in awhile? Overwhelmed at times from trying to keep up with homeschooling and everything else? Like there is no end to the tasks in front of you?
Your not alone! We all have these days from time to time.
It's called reality and motherhood!!
The inspiration for doing this video came from one of my down days. And you can tell the first part of the video was done when i just wasn't feeling all into it. The last part was done the next day with renewed energy and fresh inspiration.
So may this be a help to you in your down and overwhelmed days. Knowing that there is better days ahead. And that we have our Heavenly father watching over us and singing over us. And is fighting for us. And gives us the strength and wisdom for parenting if we just ask.
For His yoke is easy and His burden Light. He will give you rest and peace,
In Him, Mae

Answers to Prayer - don't always come when we want nor look the way we want them to - video blog post
God hears us before we even speak a word, ( Psalms 139:4 - Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely. Isaiah 65:24- Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. )
So we can be assured that He hears our every prayer. And we can also be assured that He answers our every prayer too.
But what we need to realize is that He answers in His time, His way and His will. So the answers don’t always come when we want, how we want and don’t always look the way we want them to.
But He answers our prayers according to His will and what’s best for us for our good and for his glory.
And that is really what we want anyway. We just want Him in our lives and His will done in our lives.
I believe God answers every prayer in one of three ways. Yes. No. And not yet.
In this video I want to encourage you to not give up or get weary in prayer, and not lose hope.
But continue to seek the Father and His will and His heart. And seek and pray that your desires and heart longings are aligned with those of God’s.
Psalms 37:4 tells us that when we take delight in the LORD, he will give us the desires of your heart. But first and foremost God himself needs to be the desire of our hearts. God and His Will for our lives need to be the desire of our hearts.
And when we desire or love God with all our hearts, soul, and mind then hearts should be in the right place and we will be desiring the right things.
May you be blessed and encouraged with this post and video about prayer.
In Him, Mae
Ok, so here is the last garden video of the season.
It's harvest season. Both in the gardens and fields, and a spiritual harvest. The doors may be closed for a lot of things we call normal life, but the doors and hearts are wide open for the spiritual harvest. Now is the time to be diligent in our witnessing.
We are harvesting the last of the vegetables in our garden.
Since doing this video we got the last of the potatoes, carrots, beets, and rutabagas out of the ground. We waited almost too late and the ground was already starting to freeze, but got everything out and safely in our cold room. We are very thankful for the good harvest.
Watch all the way till the end of the video to get a fun sneak peek of our baby goats.
Hey there and welcome to another garden video!
In this video I talk about freezing peas with out blanching. This is my second year of doing this now. They turned out excellent last year.
For the spiritual part of the video I introduce my video series, Is it God you Really Want or Just Heaven?
May you be inspired to go all in and all out for God!
In Him, Mae
In the garden with Mae - getting fresh veggies, freezing peas without blanching, and spiritual insights - video
Hey there and welcome to another garden video!
In this video I talk about freezing peas with out blanching.
And I introduce my video series Is it God you really Want or Just Heaven?
Watch for more garden videos to come as the garden keeps growing and as I continue to pick and preserve vegies and berries.
I will keep doing garden videos until is all done and harvested!
Welcome to the 4th in the series of my summer 2020 garden videos.
In this one I talk about our peas setting on, show how everything is growing so good and fast.
And I talk about the root worm problem that's attacking and killing my cabbage plants. it's really annoying how they attack the roots like that and have the plant ruined before I even suspect a thing .
For my spiritual part of my garden videos I talk about how Satan comes to seek, kill, and destroy. He uses all kinds of sneaky tactics like that to attack us, and if possible to tear down our very root system that's in Jesus. So be aware of your enemy and stay in the Word and in prayer. And God will keep you strong!
In Him, Mae
