Ever Wonder How Present God Really is in Your Every Day?


Ever wonder how present God really is in your every day?

Six years and eight months ago, my husband called me into our bedroom and spoke two words to me that seemed to instantly cancel the two he’d spoken to me seventeen years earlier at the altar.

I’m done.

And he was.  And for six years and eight months, by the grace of God (and He gets all the credit), I have continued to keep my marriage covenant, alone.  I’ve continued to seek and pray for marriage reconciliation.  I’ve continued to stand on the truths of Scripture and what the Bible says about marriage.

Last Sunday evening, I was lying in bed with my Bible and I asked the Lord to give me something.  I just needed something to let me know that He was there.

He led me to Isaiah 54, and it was perfect.  But, I didn’t know just how perfect.

The next morning, I woke with the song, Ever Be, on my mind.  I played it on repeat as I got ready.  I even texted it to a few friends.  It was perfect.  But, I didn’t know just how perfect.

Later that same day, my sister in law called me as I was about to leave work.  She asked me if I’d heard.  I wasn’t sure what she meant, so she continued with two words.

He’s engaged.

I thanked her for telling me then headed home to sit with the Lord in my prayer closet – which is actually my front porch swing.

God reminded me of the chapter He’d shown me the night before and the song that He’d laid on my heart that very morning.

If you even wonder how present God is in your every day life.  I hope this answers that question for you.

Isaiah 54:4-17

“Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed;
Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame;
For you will forget the shame of your youth,
And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
For the Lord has called you
Like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit,
Like a youthful wife when you were refused,”
Says your God.
“For a mere moment I have forsaken you,
But with great mercies I will gather you.
With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment;
But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,”
Says the Lord, your Redeemer.

“For this is like the waters of Noah to Me;
For as I have sworn
That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth,
So have I sworn
That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.
10 For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

11 “O you afflicted one,
Tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems,
And lay your foundations with sapphires.
12 I will make your pinnacles of rubies,
Your gates of crystal,
And all your walls of precious stones.
13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord,
And great shall be the peace of your children.
14 In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
15 Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me.
Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake.

16 “Behold, I have created the blacksmith
Who blows the coals in the fire,
Who brings forth an [a]instrument for his work;
And I have created the [b]spoiler to destroy.
17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

Journal for Moms or Graduates

Journal for Prayer and Bible Time (for Mom or older student)

Looking for a gift for a MOM or a GRADUATE?  This is is!  Order now through Currclick.

While devotions are useful, there’s just no substitute for reading God’s Word for yourself and having a consistent prayer life.

These JOURNALS provide a place for organizing time spent with the Lord. This is a digital product and you will need to print, double sided.  I suggest taking to an office supply store to have spiral bound – usually for a couple of dollars.

You can view the Youtube video showing how this journal works here.

This journal includes a sheet of “I Am” statements with related Scripture to remind you that you are loved, worthy, understood, helped, known, and not alone.

It includes a section to write down monthly memory verses (two per month) as well as a place to record birthdays and anniversaries of family members and friends.

It includes a Weekly Prayer Sheet where you write down requests for Family, Friends and Others, and Answers to Prayers and Praises.

The bulk of this journal includes daily journal sheets. There are enough for Monday through Friday for an entire year.

On the journal pages, your mom or graduate can write down the Scripture the Lord leads him/her to for that day. He/she is encouraged to read Scripture from his own Bible. Underline, highlight, jot notes in your Bible and record everything on the journal page.

This journal also includes a Prayer Strategies section. Each prayer strategy sheet is steeped with Scripture so you can pray God’s Word over a person or situation. Prayers include Praying for Myself, Praying for My Spouse, Praying for My Children, Praying for My Future Husband or Wife, and Praying for Deliverance, etc.

Help your mom or graduate make spending time in His Presence a priority with this journal.

VIPKID Teaching Opportunity – Six Month Update


I have been teaching with VIPKID for almost six months now and wanted to give you an update.

First, this opportunity has been a blessing to my family financially.  Through VIPKID, I am able to make additional money and modify our budget to build in things that were not possible before.

Second, I am able to work my own hours.  I can choose to work in the evenings, mornings (or all night long!).  I choose to work the early morning hours from 5:00-9:00.  It was hard at first, but now that I’m in the routine, it’s going well.

Third, there is room for advancement with VIPKID.  In addition to teaching my regular classes, I can refer other teachers to VIPKID and receive additional bonus money for referrals.  Also, there are opportunities to increase your salary when your contract is renewed (at 6 months).  There is also an opportunity to become a Mentor Teacher.  The hourly pay rate is much higher than when teaching a regular class.  I am not a Mentor teacher, so I don’t have a lot of details about that, but it’s something to check into.

Fourth, I enjoy getting to know the students!  Half of the students I teach are regulars.  This means, I usually see them on a weekly basis.  I have been able to build a rapport with these students and sometimes with the parents as well (sometimes a parent sits off-camera, beside the student during class).  I enjoy having the kids tell me about Chinese New Year or share about their day.  It’s really amazing how connected our world can be through the use of technology!

If you are interested in signing up with VIPKID, I’d be grateful if you would use my referral link (below).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Teaching with VIPKid – Huge Year End Referral Mega-Incentive





Recently, I wrote an article in The Old Schoolhouse Magazine on the topic of working at home to supplement your family’s income.  You can read a post about that here.

Shortly after that article, I discovered another very do-able way to make money from home.  It’s through a program called VIPKid.  I have been teaching online classes to Chinese students through this program.  There’s no prep work!  I just log on and hit “Go to Classroom.”  I follow the Powerpoint (provided) and go through the slides one at a time for 25 minutes.  I add Feedback and then I’m done!

I cannot say enough good things about the ease of this program.  VIPKid pays very well too!  You can make about $20/hour.  ($8/25min class with $1 incentive for being on time, and $1 incentive for finishing the class)

You make your own hours!  You can get up early to teach or teach in the evenings – whatever works best with your family’s schedule.  For example, you could teach from 5:00-9:00 (8 classes) and make about $80/day.

Right now, VIPKid is doing an huge Year End Referral Mega-Incentive program. 

I’d be grateful if you’d like to use my referral link:


Once you sign on, you can refer others and get $150 for each referral who signs up and teaches one class from now until December 31!

I wanted to be sure to share this great opportunity with you.  If you have questions, please email me.  kathyahutto@gmail.com

Kickstarter Update

kickstarter blog pic

We did it!  Goal #1 has been met.  I will be moving this free WordPress.com blog over to hosted WordPress.org blog with my own domain!  I’ll keep you posted all along the way as we make this transition next month.

In the meantime, we’re on a roll!  Why stop now?

Goal #2 is to hire a graphic designer to re-design the cover and inside of the Men’s Bible Reading and Prayer Journal.  I’ve found the perfect one – my friend Meghan, who designed the Women’s version seen in the photo.  $250 will get this done!

The Men’s Journal will be like the Women’s version but with a more manly designer cover.  It will include prayer strategy sheets such as Prayer for my Wife and all of the ones that are contained in the Women’s version.

My “purpose” or mission is to encourage ALL people to read their Bibles and pray daily.  I’m preparing an article which should post next Friday on why this is so important.  Be sure to Subscribe so you won’t miss it!  The ALL part of this mission statement includes…

Women – Journal, daily online Bible Study through our website and Youtube channel

Men – Journal designed for men

Children – Journal designed for children, Bible Studies for preteens, Growing Character Bible Study for Girls, Sunday School resources, Summer Camp curricula

Worldwide – Curricula to use for Mission Trips

Families – Daily online devotions on our website and Youtube Channel, Advent book

All of the above are already complete EXCEPT for the Men’s Journal (and I’d like to re-do the one for Children at some point).  

Would you consider helping me get the Men’s Journal designed?

If so, you can view my Kickstarter campaign here.

Be sure to check out my Youtube video where I show you the Women’s Journal cover to cover!  You can check that out here.
