Shabbat Shalom!

Shalom, alichem!

I hope you all have had a great week.

I just thought I would take this opportunity of wishing you all a lovely weekend and a shalom-filled shabbat.

I’m going to be offline now until after shabbat, simply because I’ve allowed the internet to eat up too many of my hours this week.  (I also need to actually do so home-making, and especially work hard to meet my challenge deadline of cleaning my fridge before Shabbat!)

Please don’t feel that you can’t post on the Messianic Keepers at Home Network on shabbat, by the way. I’m tending towards viewing the network as a “fellowship”, so provided you’re not posting in the marketplace, I don’t feel that you’re violating Torah.  It’s up for discussion (as are all the draft ‘rules’ I’ve posted!) but certainly for now I leave it to you to personally make a judgement.

Looking forward to learning more with you next week.

Every blessing to you!

In Yeshua,

Shabbat Shalom!

Shalom ladies! (and our one gentleman!)

I am so amazed by the interest the Messianic Keepers at Home network has generated – we are less than a week old and already we have 35 members!

Thank-you to all who have joined and contributed!

I know that this network will be a blessing, and that already some are encouraged (including me!) to work more diligently at the worthy calling of wife, mother and homemaker, thanks to the kindness and willingness of other ladies who are prepared to share their knowledge and experience and also to ask questions in areas we have to learn.

It’s not my intention that this network should take time away from your tasks as homemakers, but if you are able to spare a few moments each day, or even half an hour a week encouraging other ladies, we will all be blessed and enabled to bless our families, to the praise of HaShem, Baruch hu!

Those of you with experience might consider becoming administrators of groups (which just means making sure that questions are answered, encouraging discussion or challenges and also enables you to post items such as links, photos, videos etc. to your group’s resources box).

I’d also like to draw your attention to the Kosher Recipe Exchange in the forum. It is currently set up in such a way that recipes need to be posted as replies to existing discussions rather than as new discussions – I hope that doesn’t cause confusion, but it seemed the easiest way to organise the forum. Please contribute recipes if you can!

And finally, thank-you for a wonderful week on the Messianic Keepers at Home network, and I wish you a very blessed shabbat.

Shabbat shalom!

Living out Titus 2 ‘Virtually’

I’m excited about how fast the Messianic Keepers at Home network is growing and pray that we will all bless each other and our husbands and families through it.

Now that there are lots of groups and forum categories and discussions, I won’t be able to personally manage every area of the network, so I’m hoping that the ladies will “take charge” a little bit of  groups where they have knowledge, experience or expertise, have links to share, books to recommend, etc.

Also, I’m hoping people will speak up and ask questions in groups where they are wanting to learn.

That way, I pray that the Messianic Keepers at Home network will begin to fulfill the mandate in Titus 2 ‘virtually’.

Messianic Keepers at Home

I’m leaving Bajor for the time being and coming back down to earth to write a Homemaking blog.

I’ve started a network on Ning called Messianic Keepers at Home: http://messianickah.ning.com

Here’s the blurb:

“The Messianic Keepers at Home network is a place to encourage Messianic women in their roles as wives, mothers and homemakers.

“The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of [YHWH] be not blasphemed.”
Titus 2:3-5

Wherever you are on the Messianic spectrum, from Jewish Christian through to Nazarene Israelite or Torah-observant Followers of Yeshua, this is a place to learn and teach in the spirit of Titus 2.

I started this network because of a perceived need for the Titus 2 ministry within the Messianic movement. It is the fruit of a long-time interest and vision. It is my hope and prayer that this network will enable, support and encourage both older women to teach and younger women to learn. May it be a blessing to you all, to your husbands, your children, your parents, the Household of Faith and the wider society in which you live.

Christian and Jewish women are also welcome provided they are not opposed to the Messianic faith.

Not a place to debate theology or scripture, except in love and where it can bless, encourage and edify.

Please behave in a spirit of Chesed (kindness, or ‘grace’), love and gentleness at all times. Lashon hara (unpleasant speech in any form) is not acceptable.

Please come and join us!
