John 6:32-35

King James Version

32 Then Jesus said unto them, 

Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; 

but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

33 For the bread of God 

is he which cometh down from heaven, 

and giveth life unto the world.

34 Then said they unto him, 

Lord, evermore give us this bread.

35 And Jesus said unto them, 

I am the bread of life: 

he that cometh to me shall never hunger; 

and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

At PRAISE village, we eat in a spirit of love.

First, we thank our Creator, for all of the blessings.

Second, we thank GOD for our families, friends, and farmers.

Third, we pray that all have enough to eat, everywhere in the world.

We cannot enjoy meals unless those occur, and these verses apply:

Proverbs 15:17

King James Version

17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, 

than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

Proverbs 17:1

King James Version

17 Better is a dry morsel, 

and quietness therewith, 

than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

Proverbs 16:19

King James Version

19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, 

than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Acts 2:46

King James Version

46 And they, 

continuing daily with one accord in the temple, 

and breaking bread from house to house, 

did eat their meat 

with gladness and singleness of heart,

No matter how humble the food, how simple the meal, how spare the resources, the true born again relishes every precious meal, in a spirit of love and gratitude, for CHRIST resides in our hearts.

That's how homes must be.

May you have such homes, or gatherings.

The PRAYING village


Oh God, 

don't let this generation pass, 

without seeing your glory...

When revival comes, 

the total environment is changed.

-- Leonard Ravenhill

PRAISE village is a praying village.

All people at the village pray.

Knowing without GOD, we are nothing.

Parents teach their children to pray.

To give thanks to GOD.

To know GOD's will.

To obey GOD.

To know how to love, as JESUS taught.

These verses guide a PRAISE village constantly:

Psalm 34:4-6

King James Version

4 I sought the Lord, 

and he heard me, 

and delivered me from all my fears.

5 They looked unto him, 

and were lightened: 

and their faces were not ashamed.

6 This poor man cried, 

and the Lord heard him, 

and saved him out of all his troubles.

and I will answer thee, 

and show thee great and mighty things, 

which thou knowest not.

that ye enter not into temptation: 

the spirit indeed is willing, 

but the flesh is weak.

King James Version

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, 

Have faith in God.

King James Version

25 And when ye stand praying, 


if ye have ought against any:

 that your Father also which is in heaven 

may forgive you your trespasses.

26 But if ye do not forgive, 

neither will your Father which is in heaven 

forgive your trespasses.

Luke 11:9-10

King James Version

9 And I say unto you, 

Ask, and it shall be given you; 

seek, and ye shall find; 

knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

10 For every one that asketh receiveth; 

and he that seeketh findeth; 

and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Luke 11:11-13

King James Version

11 If a son shall ask bread 

of any of you that is a father, 

will he give him a stone? 

or if he ask a fish, 

will he for a fish give him a serpent?

12 Or if he shall ask an egg, 

will he offer him a scorpion?

13 If ye then, being evil, 

know how to give good gifts unto your children: 

how much more shall your heavenly Father 

give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

John 15:7

King James Version

7 If ye abide in me, 

and my words abide in you, 

ye shall ask what ye will, 

and it shall be done unto you.

that men ought always to pray, 

and not to faint;

King James Version

7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, 

which cry day and night unto him, 

though he bear long with them?

8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. 

Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, 

shall he find faith on the earth?

Romans 8:26

King James Version

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: 

for we know not what we should pray for 

as we ought: 

but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us 

with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Romans 8:27

King James Version

27 And he that searcheth the hearts 

knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, 

because he maketh intercession for the saints 

according to the will of God.

Ephesians 6:18

King James Version

18 Praying always 

with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, 

and watching thereunto 

with all perseverance 

and supplication for all saints;

but in every thing 

by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving 

let your requests be made known unto God.

that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life 

in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is good and acceptable 

in the sight of God our Saviour;

4 Who will have all men to be saved, 

and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

1 Timothy 2:5

King James Version

5 For there is one God, 

and one mediator between God and men, 

the man Christ Jesus;

Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

let him call for the elders of the church; 

and let them pray over him, 

anointing him with oil 

in the name of the Lord:

James 5:15

King James Version

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, 

and the Lord shall raise him up; 

and if he have committed sins, 

they shall be forgiven him.

James 5:16

A GENETICS adventure


1 Peter 3:15

King James Version

15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: 

and be ready always to give an answer 

to every man that asketh you 

a reason of the hope that is in you 

with meekness and fear:

Do Bible and science mix?

Of course, it does.

Before we were, GOD was.

He is CREATOR of ALL things.

How can we deny GOD His Creation?

We, at PRAISE village, honor the ONE, TRUE GOD.

Can science be taught biblically, and coherently?

How about on matters of history, creation, or races?

Is there a teacher out there who connects all these with GOD's WORD?

Schools of the world will always teach things of the world.

It's to be expected.

Here at PRAISE village we have the alternatives.

The HOLY SPIRIT led me to two astounding teachers.

Both are educated in human biology, and plant genetics.

Yes, folks, we shall venture into a genetics adventure.

You will love listening to these science teachers, who have much to teach us.

How I've waited, and longed for such teaching, and teachers!

GOD always saves the BEST for last.

I am happy to share all these with you.

It's never to confuse, but to fuse.

We've all been disjointed with what the world has taught us.

Or what the world left out.

Never again.

SPIRIT's on top of things.

ALL GLORY belongs to GOD forever!

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, 

and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.

1 Corinthians 10:31

King James Version

31 Whether therefore ye eat, 

or drink, 

or whatsoever ye do, 

do all to the glory of God.

Colossians 3:17

King James Version

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, 

do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

PRETTY little house


Haggai 1:8

King James Version

8 Go up to the mountain, 

and bring wood, 

and build the house; 

and I will take pleasure in it, 

and I will be glorified, 

saith the Lord.

PRAISE village has a simple concept:

To worship GOD alone.

We are not distracted by things of the world.

We like simple.

Thus, when I saw that PLAY house picture above, I was mighty moved.

My born again heart saw possibilities.

I imagined it on a larger scale, to house adults.

And kids, of course.

Thanks to the GENIUS creativity of Jen, a self-taught carpenter, and mother of two.

Sure, it's for kids.

But sez who you can't modify it, and make it for a whole family?

Connect with Jen, and she'll give you the plans for FREE.

That's the basic house design I envision for the village.

Just a simple structure, with a shed roof.

A warm, and cheerful structure that loves its occupants.

A home you'd love to come home to.

A home, with heart.

Add areas for living, dining, kitchen, bath, and a bedroom, or two.

Depending on how big a family is.

This play house design could also serve as shop, or office, for people at PRAISE village.

Who wouldn't want to go to work in a perfect, little structure such as this?

But definitely at PRAISE village, we have tiny homes.

Suffice it to say, I've finally found my dream home.

And it had to be a play house.

The roof will be slanted like the one above, shed-style.

Transom windows and front window will catch the sun every morning.

Ingenious, for it gives you additional peeks of light.

Position the main entrance to catch the morning sun.

This way, the house will be bathed with natural light, and give cheer to its occupants.

Apart from being able to save on unnecessary use of electricity.

That's always how I've imagined a house to be, having taken up architecture in the past.

I'm a simple thinker, with simple needs.

As born again, I've gotten even simpler.

I like what John the Baptist said about CHRIST, and himself:

John 3:30

King James Version

30 He must increase, 

but I must decrease.

A tiny house, a basic one, will help discipline born agains into worshiping GOD, instead of being caught up by possessions.

And yes, we keep those circular windows.

Our houses may be simple, but each house is filled with:


GOD's LOVE, and 


I can envision such houses populating our PRAISE village.

Our community church will be that way, too.

Won't houses look the same?

All the better.

Families only need to put their own colorful curtain, or put favored plants on the wooden boxes.

Every house has the same natural wood exterior.

It's more economical to build shed roofs, for rain will flow down one side only.

Long-span roofing sounds good.

I've seen too many complex roofs that create leaks.

Our homes are for GOD, and families.

Not for show, or luxury.

We're too busy living GOD's TRUTH.

To have a FREE plan of this pretty play house, click this link now.

You can always build bigger, and taller for adults.

Just have the heart of a happy child, and the HOLY SPIRIT will surely fill your heart with ideas.

Dream with GOD.

Everything starts from small things.

Let it be a play house for GOD first.

We, perpetual kids, ALWAYS build for GOD first.

For we have no doubt who we serve:

Joshua 24:15

King James Version

15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, 

choose you this day whom ye will serve; 

whether the gods which your fathers served 

that were on the other side of the flood, 

or the gods of the Amorites, 

in whose land ye dwell: 

but as for me and my house, 

we will serve the Lord.

I thank the HOLY SPIRIT for leading me to Jen's play house, which tickled my five-year-old heart, to share with you.

P.S. What is it about KENTUCKY?

I learned Jen is from Kentucky.

I also realized I had featured a simple log home before.

Also in Kentucky.

I have a basic book on the U.S.

So, I search for "Kentucky".

Predictably, it's a child's book.

Now, don't remind me about the fried chicken.

Also, I learned Jen's a Christian.

GOD really brings His people together.

I'm in AWE.

The PEACEFUL village


1 Corinthians 14:33

King James Version

33 For God is not the author of confusion, 

but of peace, 

as in all churches of the saints.

PRAISE village is a peaceful village.

Only because GOD governs.

Thus, there's order.

There's love, peace, joy, and contentment.

People know how to get along with each other.

There's no jealousy, bickering, or stealing.

People live within their means.

They don't look for what's not there.

They are not governed by the ways of the world.

The church teaches them to worship GOD, above all.

Husbands honor their wives.

Wives honor their husbands.

Children honor their parents.

Parents teach their children about GOD.

Families honor their elderly.

Families honor those with infirmities.

Such infirmities are considered precious, in the eyes of GOD.

How can they not honor every creation of GOD?

The village is designed simply.

That all may live, work, play, and praise.

People are not interested in having bigger homes than others.

There are no cars to block paths, exhausts to exhaust everyone.

A bus, or shuttle, shuttles everyone, where they need to go.

A designated place for such vehicle has been provided for.

Away from homes, playgrounds, workplaces.

There are picnic tables, where families, and friends, can gather.

It's wonderful eating outside, where we can enjoy GOD's creation.

There's a large-enough wooded area.

Where people can roam, dream, rest, gather, pray.

Perhaps, a lake would be found.

And children can play and swim freely.

The village will not be near a river, for these tend to overflow.

Such villages can be created.

If our hearts are right with GOD.

As they say, where there's a will, there's a way.

Born again villagers would rather say:

"Where there's GOD's will, 

there's JESUS' way."

Deuteronomy 11:1

King James Version

11 Therefore thou shalt love the Lord thy God, 

and keep his charge, 

and his statutes, 

and his judgments, 

and his commandments, 


Parents at PRAISE village are born again.

They have committed their lives to the LORD.

They are instructed by SPIRIT each day.

Prayers are given to JESUS each day.

Everything is offered to GOD.

For His GLORY alone, and never man's.

Whether it be our lives, work, or children.

For, without GOD, we won't be here.

We won't even exist.

It's really as simple as that.

Being governed by GOD, parents can govern their children well.

GOD was clear how we are to bring up our children:

Deuteronomy 11:19-21

King James Version

19 And ye shall teach them your children, 

speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, 

and when thou walkest by the way, 

when thou liest down, 

and when thou risest up.

20 And thou shalt write them 

upon the door posts of thine house, 

and upon thy gates:

21 That your days may be multiplied, 

and the days of your children, 

in the land which the Lord sware 

unto your fathers to give them, 

as the days of heaven upon the earth.

This is not brainwashing.

This is being WASHED by the WORD.

That we may be acceptable to the LORD, our GOD, when the day comes.

That we may be guided by His SPIRIT each day.

That we may acknowledge the teachings of the LORD JESUS.

Everything JESUS taught, is to love GOD, and others.

What better foundation for kids, would there be?

That we may live a life, worthy of the SAVIOR's cross.

That His death, was not for nothing.

And that we would teach our children the same.

To revere the LORD, our GOD, forever.

Making sure we are all focused on GOD alone.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.

We won't ask children to conform to the ways of the world.

Romans 12:2

King James Version

2 And be not conformed to this world: 

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, 

that ye may prove what is that good, 

and acceptable, 

and perfect, 

will of God.

We won't ask them to be obsessed with wealth, or ambition.

Luke 9:25

King James Version

25 For what is a man advantaged, 

if he gain the whole world, 

and lose himself, 

or be cast away?

The ways of the world are in total opposition to the ways of SPIRIT.

Galatians 5:16-17

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other:

 so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

You've heard about leadership "by example"?

Born again parents live by example.

It's really as simple as that.

The JOYFUL village


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

King James Version

16 Rejoice evermore.

17 Pray without ceasing.

18 In every thing give thanks: 

for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus 

concerning you.

PRAISE village is a happy born again village.

For we know JESUS can return ANY moment.

GOD decides when.

In the meantime, we study the WORD, we live the WORD, and we share the WORD.

The WORD of GOD is center of our existence.

And since JESUS is the WORD, He is the center of our existence.

John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us, 

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.

What could be more exciting than to see the LORD, and to be with Him?

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

What could be more exciting than to have ETERNAL LIFE with JESUS?

John 11:25-26

King James Version

25 Jesus said unto her, 

I am the resurrection, 

and the life: 

he that believeth in me, 

though he were dead, 

yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me 

shall never die. 

Believest thou this?

All you have to do is seek GOD.

Believe in His SON.

Repent of your sins.

Believe in the gospel.

For the time is at hand.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

Everything we're doing on earth -- our life, our work -- is but preparation.

Everything must be consecrated to CHRIST.

That's why we at PRAISE village are happy, and content.

To have JESUS in your heart, suffices.

To have GOD love us, is all we need.

To have SPIRIT teach us, makes us feel so blessed.

To live by the BIBLE, guides us each moment.

We are in GOD's good company.

We are happy to share our village with you.
