And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. -Genesis 1:3-4
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden…In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. -Matthew 5:14, 16
Being God’s first creation, light plays an important role in our lives as followers of Christ. Being a light in a world without it makes it hard for us to hide. We are called to be bright and conspicuous, which can sometimes show things in us we’d rather not share. However, through it all, God’s power and love can be seen through us as we share our light - His light - with others.
Join us starting Monday, August 12, as we spend time studying “Being Light & Salt.” This will be a “Mom and Child” study with specially made activities, lessons, and conversation starters to help you and your child learn together about what a Christian’s calling to be light and salt really means. We can’t wait to begin!

Welcome! Our Christian lifestyle blog - www.theruffledmango.com - was launched in the summer of 2015, to fill a niche of speaking the truth in love. We want to encourage women to identify what the Bible really says, and then confidently step into their God-given roles, glorifying Him as we pass through this life. Our site has slowly evolved, with the feedback from our precious readers, to offering much more Bible study materials, such as our monthly scripture writing plans (offered for free on the blog). We also have created several physical products, such as our Faith Planner, scripture writing calendar, greeting cards, and printables (which you can find in our Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheRuffledMango) The four of us also enjoy creating online Bible studies, which are all housed here in our Teachable school: https://the-ruffled-mango-school.teachable.com/cou... We hope to add ebooks and printed workbooks to our offerings in the next year or so. =)
Besides our work with The Ruffled Mango, the four of us are busy with other work also. Kristen manages a local antique & gift shop and co-coordinates a huge tea party fundraiser each spring for student scholarships to a local Christian university. Ashley (a CPA) teaches college level accounting classes, mothers 4 sweet kiddos, and also tends chickens & an orphaned lamb in her spare time. Alyssa is mom to 3 active boys and sells fancy decorated cookies and cakes on the side. Christy is a health science teacher with 5 children and serves in the role as a preacher's wife also. All of us enjoy cooking and baking, along with working in various ministries in our home congregations.
