Welcome to Hollysjava. The story behind this little website begins with our oldest son, who attended an overnight camp in 2006. At this camp, he was given a small 2-week daily devotional booklet. When he came home, and I saw him finishing the second week of devotions, I realized I did not want him to lose the good habit that had started of meeting with God daily. So, I began searching for something for him to move on to. This website and the family devotional page grew out of that search and the desire to follow Deuteronomy 6:4-9. It is part of my husband and my prayer to write God’s Word on the “door frames” of our house daily and obey Deuteronomy 6:4-9 to the best of our ability with God’s help.
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lordyour God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. – Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (ESV)
