The Lord is My Shepherd. I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He Restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake... Psalm 23: 1-3. I need the Bible.

Thankfully, God uses the weak things of this world. He uses me, and loves me, even though I’m me. Even though I let mountains of dirty laundry pile up. Even though I’m sometimes impatient. Even though there are days I don’t do everything right, and days I wonder if I do anything right.

I’m not a brilliant scholar. I don’t have any significant titles, or initials, before or after my name. I’m more of a mistake maker, and a grace and mercy taker—respectfully, of course. When Jesus offers me grace and mercy I accept, because I’m in desperate need. 

I want to love God deeply, soak in the words He gave me, walk overflowing with the love of Christ, and encourage others to do the same. I want to glorify Him with what He’s given me no matter how insufficient I feel. Because He’s sufficient.

On my own I’m not worthy of God’s perfect love. But, He still loves me. He still calls me to share His truth. So, I’ll continue to share His Word the way I try and share it with our daughters, delivered by His power (not mine), filtered by His grace, and covered in His love.


Erika Juhas encourages people to read God’s Word, and grow in their relationship with Him, by providing devotional resources through Homeschooling her two daughters for the past 18 years gave her daily teaching opportunities. 

In addition to homeschooling, and writing for, she had a short article published in Focus on the Family’s Thriving Family magazine. She also enjoys cooking, gardening, and painting.

Erika has served in various ministries for over 25 years. When she attended Bible college in Austria, she took the opportunity to reach out to people in surrounding countries with the love of Christ. God used various experiences including: visiting orphans in Romania, planning a vacation Bible School in Serbia, and reaching out to girls in a Hungarian girls’ home to broaden her small perspective, and deepen her heart for the lost.
