She also is busy writing tracts which she freely shares with her readers for them to download, print and place in tract racks or to leave in places where women could use encouragement. Lydia’s blog “Lady Lydia’s Home Living” is filled with wonderful ideas for use around the home, sewing tips as well as devotional and encouraging thoughts. You can visit Lydia at her blog page Lady Lydia’s Home Living.
 
Below we are sharing with you an excerpt from one of Lydia’s recent tracts. She has plans to make this a series so if you would like more you can contact her via her blog. Below the excerpt is a downloadable version that you are free to print and use to help encourage others. Stop over at Lady Lydia’s blog page and let her know how you plan to use her tract. We’re sure she would appreciate the visit. 
 

Helpers in the Lord’s Church.

In the Lord’s church, we are obligated to find our answers in the Word of God, and not depend on the trends of the prevailing culture.  To find out what the role of older women is, all we need to do is read and practice what is written in Titus 2, verses 1-5:

1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

These verses lay out things that the churches of Christ need from older women. These needs will always be with us from generation to generation.

    Hello, One thing I want to do this new year is take time out to talk to any member of the church who is homemaking or homeschooling or both. You can email me at ladylydiaspeaks@comcast,net to set up a time and give me your phone number.
