RUBY'S Reading Corner

RUBY'S Reading Corner features books by Ruby authors, as well as a wide-variety of inspirational books, family and parenting, holidays, gardening, Christian fiction, marriage and relationship advice, financial advice, and so much more.   
 

JOIN US IN THE NEW RUBY COMMUNITY!
We are so excited about the new RUBY community and neighborhood!


Here's the great news: we are relocating the RUBY Community and neighborhood to FACEBOOK!

Since most of us are already on FB, this will just make everything so easy to access - one of the challenges of a separate community website is that it is often difficult to figure out and navigate. But with our community being right on FB, you will be able to pop in and connect with one another anytime you want, right from your computer or phone or other device.
 
Remember, the RUBY community is a place where we can encourage and support one another, share daily devotionals, inspirational posts, and so much  more.

That will make it so much easier for you all to participate in conversations, keep up on what's going on with RUBY  magazine, share prayer requests, recipes, crafts, and all kinds of things.

Won't you join us in the NEW RUBY Community and Neighborhood?

Here's the link to join us for daily encouragement: 
RUBY Community and Neighborhood
 
Hope to connect with YOU there very soon!
PS The RUBY Community here on the Spruz platform will no longer be available after August 13, 2017 so be sure to join us on Facebook before then!

My son is going to college. 

As a parent, I'm torn between "Oh, my sweet Baby is going out on his own!" and "Buh-bye All-Knowing-One- good luck in the real world!"

To some of you, that last statement might seem snarky, but there's good reason behind it. You see, according to our nineteen year-old son, my husband and I are morons. 

We had a huge discussion with him about grants vs, loans, what kind of dorm to pick, what he'll really need vs. what he wants, and...Read More

I love to use that little red laser to play with my cats. They come running when they hear the soft scrape as I take it from the shelf, looking expectantly to the floor for the red dot that sends them running about the house as they try to catch it.
 
It's just a light. It's isn't something they  can  catch. Try telling one cat that, no less  three
 
Unfortunately, I have my little red light too. Several, actually. I think everyone...Read More

Last week I attended the last (but not least!)  Philly Christian Writer's conference . I was both an attendee and faculty, which I can tell you on these gimpy knees of mine, was a challenge!

Not only was I trying to sell my own work, I was helping others publish theirs in Ruby for Women Magazine. I'm the Assistant Editor, so I represented a lot of possibilities for new writers.

There was a lot of good stuff this year. One lady was so happy I was an 'Assistant'...Read More
The Art of the Ear: When God Speaks
Posted by Shara Bueler-Repka

But whoever listens to Me will dwell safely and will be secure, without fear of evil”—Proverbs 1:33.

                                                                                                     

Giving God our ear. Hmmmmm . What does that look like? How does God speak to us? Many ask this.

For me, His voice has different “sounds”: He gives a strong impression in my spirit about a particular situation ... a gut feeling, if you will; The truths in His Word will come alive as I read and revelation hits me right between the eyes; He will move on someone to...Read More

The Bride of Christ
Posted by Vallerie Sharmain

With August being women's month, I feel stirred to share one of my poems “Let faith lift you.”

It is written for the Bride of Christ. To accompany it, a personal word study: “Change your view.” It focuses on the relationship between the Bride and Groom (Jesus Christ).

Let faith lift you

Find your value...your place value!”

Sometimes I am, may be, still unaware and unconscious of Christ's

love for me...

But the Lord wakes me up from my sleep and I am stirred to remember...

O, how this...Read More

Help Sheri Diaz as she battles cervical cancer

My name is Sheri Diaz.  I am 46, live in Spring, Texas, and have been working as a Medical Assistant for the past 3 years.  I recently got the shock of my life with the diagnosis of cervical cancer.  I went in for a routine pap smear and the results indicated that something wasn't right.  About two weeks later, I went in and had a biopsy done and all three samples came back as having cancer cells in them.
