MINI ABOVE RUBIES, No 1 for 2017

Dear Above Rubies readers,

This is our first Mini Above Rubies Newsletter for the year. Between our printed editions of Above Rubies, I periodically send you an email newsletter.

Everyone in USA will have received their new issue of Above Rubies, #93 by now. If you haven’t received one, please let me know.

If you live in other countries, the magazines are now arriving at their bases and if you haven’t already received it, you should receive your new Above Rubies very soon. Be looking out for it.

Please pray for God’s mighty anointing upon the magazines as they go out across the world, to well over 100 nations. I can spend hours putting it together, but it is only God's anointing that changes lives. And that's the reason we do it. To see lives changed all over the world. To see families coming back to God's Ways. To see mothers coming back to the home and embracing motherhood. To see fathers turning back to their families. To see marriages healed. Thanks so much for your prayers.

You will notice that I have advertised several new products in this latest issue of Above Rubies. At the end of this newsletter I’ll list them for you again with their links. It so much easier for you to click on a link than retype it from the magazine. Check them out at the end of this letter.

Featured Articles
















Now that this magazine has been sent out, I am thinking about the new one and will start working on it. Then, as soon as the money comes to hand I can go to print. My only delay in getting magazines out to you is waiting for the loving donations to come in. I hope you don’t have to wait too long this time. Needing some feedback for the new issue:


The names we give to our children can have a great impact upon their lives. If you have an interesting or informative story about naming any of your children, please send it to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


I am always eager to receive testimonies of marriage restorations. If you have a testimony that could help to strengthen and bless hurting marriages, I would so love to hear from you. Put MARRIAGE TESTIMONY in the Subject heading and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

When writing for Above Rubies on any subject about motherhood or family life, please type only one space between your sentences. Keep to about 1500 words or less if possible. Please type your phone number and email address at the end of your article so I can be in contact with you. Thanks so much.



Colin and I have just returned from Down Under where we spoke at Above Rubies retreats and were also able to catch up with family we haven’t seen for years. It was a very precious time.

Four weeks before we left for New Zealand, Colin fell and broke his hip and pelvis. We wondered whether he would be able to come. But we prayed for a miraculous recovery and I fed him up on bone broth every day, simmering the bones for over 48 hours each lot. He had two flasks of this every day. It did wonders and when we left for New Zealand he decided to leave his crutches behind and went without them. He limped along, but eventually his other leg gave out because he was using it as a crutch! However, he is getting better all the time.

ColinFriesHere is a picture of Colin eating national Down Under fast food—fish and chips. When cooked, they are wrapped in newspaper or white paper. You open a hole in the top and take the chips our one by one. It’s especially nice in the winter when your fish and chips keep you warm as you cuddle them!

Because this year is our 40th anniversary of publishing Above Rubies, we had a 40th Anniversary in New Zealand and in Australia—Ruby anniversaries for Above Rubies! They were great times of remembering the faithfulness of God for these last 40 years.

LoisMeThis picture is of Lois Jordan who did the layout for Above Rubies when we started the magazine 40 years ago in Palmerston North, New Zealand. It was all “cut and paste” in those days. We didn’t have computers for the job.

HeatherMeThis picture is of Heather Jones who currently directs the work of Above Rubies in New Zealand. Her sister, Val, directs Above Rubies in Australia.

VALMEWhen we got to Australia we had another celebration. This is a picture of Val Stares who has been working with me in the ministry from the very first day I got the vision! She and her family left New Zealand and came with us to Australia in January 1982 when we moved to that country. And when we moved to USA ten years later (August 1991), she stayed on to direct the work in Australia. I honor her faithfulness for working with me in Above Rubies for 40 years! Where do you find that kind of faithfulness? I know she has a great reward awaiting in the heavenly realm!



This is going to be an amazing weekend. If you haven’t thought about it before, why not cancel everything and come as a family. You will be so glad. Bring all your young people and any others you can find.

My husband, Colin will speak to the fathers and sons. I will speak to the mothers and daughters. And our grandson, Zadok Johnson will speak to the youth. Zadok has a mighty anointing upon his life. He walks in the power of the Holy Spirit and sees miracles and people coming to the Lord every day. The youth will be spellbound by his amazing and miraculous stories and will never be the same again. Without a doubt! Make sure they don’t miss coming for this amazing event.

I have requested this before, but need more pictures. I would love a picture of a family eating their meal around the family meal table together. It is difficult to get a good shot of this. Someone needs to take it from a high angle to get everyone in. If there is someone who could get some good shots of a family eating and sharing together, I would be so grateful.

I have received many requests for a King James Version of this wonderful daily devotional. I am preparing it now for you. I am also including some testimonies of families or individuals who have been impacted by this devotional over the years. If you have a testimony, please send it to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you don’t know what I am talking about, THE DAILY LIGHT is a devotional for every morning and every evening of the year. It is only Scripture. Nothing else. Scriptures put together on a certain theme for each morning and evening. It is such a help with Family Devotions, especially for those who have not grown up doing this and don’t feel confident about it. Especially husbands who don’t want to do it unless they feel confident and yet often don’t know where to start reading the Bible with their children. With this book, all you need to do is go to the date—and it’s all there for you. Scriptures on a certain theme waiting to read. It’s only a small reading so it doesn’t take too long. But you can make it even more exciting by asking questions as you read it to the children.

THE DAILY LIGHT we currently sell through Above Rubies is the New King James Version.  f you would like to get a copy of the NKJV in the meantime, here is the link:

"In December our family hosted a 12 year old boy from an orphanage in southern Ukraine. He spoke no English and was very frightened when he got off the plane in Seattle. However, in a few days he played alongside my nine-year-old and 12-year-old boys. We taught Rusik how to ski and it was such a joy to see him light up when he did so well up on the mountain.  

However, it was more special to introduce him to Christianity through a Bible in his language. My husband also spent time each night praying with him as he had never known his father.

Our children had tons of laughter as they played simple games with Rusik. It was a super way to introduce our children to a different culture and to Share God’s love to a orphan. Our family intends to welcome Rusik and his 17-year-old sister for four to five weeks this summer. We look forward to what God has in store for us this summer with Rusik and Yuyla!"

This is the slogan of our new president, Donald Trump. We all want this to happen, but one man can’t make it happen. Although we have a president who wants to make things happen, the greatest influence upon a nation, is not the president, but the FAMILIES OF THE NATION! It all comes back to families. It started with families and God intends it to continue with families.

God ordained families for a purpose. Everything of God is for a purpose. God wants His families to take dominion for Him, to establish His order in the land, and to reveal His plan and purposes. To do this we must be God-seeking families, God-passionate families, and praying families. This doesn’t mean going to church once each Sunday. It’s a lifestyle.

Is this the lifestyle of your home? Do you make time every morning and evening to gather your family together and impart God’s Word to them? God’s Word is our only antidote to the landslide of delusion and deception in this nation in which our children are being raised. Our colleges are increasingly becoming recruiting centers for the leftist agenda of liberal humanism and the gay lifestyle. Unless our children are entrenched in the truths and values of God’s Word they will be easy prey for the enemy of our souls.

We’ve got to build strong families—strong truth seekers, strong Word lovers, strong value keepers, strong to stand against evil and deception, and strong in prayer. The only way we and our children become strong in prayer is by praying! Do you pray with your children every morning and evening?

Leviticus 26:7, 8 tells us about warfare: “And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. And five of you shall chase an hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies will fall before you by the sword.”

A family with only three children makes five! And yet five can put 100 enemies to flight! Imagine 20 families with three children each praying morning and evening together. This passage says they can put ten thousand enemies to flight. What about those who have more children. Some families have six, seven and up to ten children! That’s a prayer meeting! As a praying family, you can change this nation. You can impact the world.

If only every God-fearing family would begin to pray together every day for the needs of this nation and the needs of the world, we would see mighty things happen. We all know 2 Chronicles 7:14 and yet we do nothing about it. Let’s read it again: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Do you confess the name of the Lord? Do you as a family confess the name of the Lord? Then the first thing we must do is seek God’s face and pray! Yes, pray! Not talk about praying, but pray. Pray as a family. It’s powerful. There’s nothing more powerful you can do as a family.

But let me tell you a secret! Satan doesn’t want you to pray. He will do everything to stop you praying as a family. He won’t use bad things to tempt you as he knows you wouldn’t be tempted. He’ll use good things to stop you. That’s how he fooled Eve in the beginning. He tempted her with that which was “good . . . beautiful to the eyes . . . and stimulating to the intellect” (Fenton).

He’ll get you running your children around the in car to sports and lessons and loads of “good” things, things you think are so important although they won’t make much difference to their future lives! But all these “good” things will stop you from praying. You won’t even be home to prepare the meal where you can all sit down together as a family to read God’s Word and PRAY! Satan wins another victory! He’s laughing up his sleeve! Because we don’t really believe 2 Chronicles 76:14 after all. We believe it, but we don’t do it.

Dearest families, we’ve got to radicalize our lives. We’ve got to change our lives where we revolve everything in our lives around our daily times of praying and reading the Word. Not just fitting them in if it happens. We make this happen first and everything else revolves around it! It’s the only way it will happen. But you can make it happen!

And remember this statement which God gave to me: “Everything from God is good, but not everything that looks good is from God.” Choose God’s best, not just that which looks good!

Unless we change our lifestyles, nothing will change in this nation. Remember, it’s not the president who can change this nation, it’s the families. GOD-FEARING FAMILIES. WORD-LOVING FAMILIES. PRAYING FAMILIES. RADICAL FOR GOD FAMILIES.

~ Nancy

Here are some articles for you to read:






Norman Williams writes:

“God didn’t make the course and destiny of nations and of individuals dependent on the decisions of Congresses and Parliaments, nor did He lay this power in the hands of rulers and kings; but God placed it in the praying family! This is why the devil cannot ruin nations of men until he has destroyed the homes of prayer! That is why Satan hates the family altar.”


“The simple fact that parents and offspring meet together every morning and evening for the Word of God and prayer is a great fact in household annals. It is the inscribing of God’s name over the lintel of the door. It is the setting up of God’s altar. The dwelling is marked as a house of prayer. Religion is thus made a substantive and prominent part of the domestic plan. The day is opened and closed in the name of the Lord. From the very dawn of reason, each little one grows up with a feeling that God must be honored in everything, that no business of life can proceed without Him and that the day’s work or study would be unsheltered, disorderly, and in a manner profane but for this consecration. When such a child comes in later years to mingle with families where there is no worship there is an unavoidable shudder, as if among heathen or infidel companions.”
~ James W. Alexander (1804-1859)


Colin and I were so very blessed this last Christmas to receive three amazing Christmas presents. Charlie and Pearl paid painters to come in and repaint our big downstairs social room. It’s actually our Above Rubies packaging room, but we use it for everything. Apart from using it for Above Rubies, we have church here on Sundays and all our huge family gatherings. Of course, it gets so much wear and tear and was ready for another paint. That was a blessing.

Serene and Sam redid all our kitchen counters which were in a bad state. Sam and his brother made them out of concrete, but the finished product looks like marble. And Sam also repainted all our kitchen cabinets. Another amazing blessing.

And then we received another surprise. I have dreamed about linen sheets for years and tried to save for years to purchase some. Unexpectedly, we received a package at Christmas time from the parents of one of our Above Rubies helpers. When I opened it up, I simply couldn’t believe my eyes. Linen sheets! My dream come true.

Colin and I adore them. We just love sleeping in them. Apart from them feeling so wonderful, they are so healthy. Linen is an extraordinary fabric that has been scientifically determined to possess healing properties. Linen has a signature frequency of 5,000. In comparison, the signature frequency of a healthy human is 100. Synthetic fabrics such as polyester (at 15) drain the body of energy with their low frequencies. Because the frequency of linen is so high, it supercharges the body with energy to heal and maintain health.


In 2003, a study was done by a Jewish doctor, Heidi Yellen, on the frequencies of fabric. According to this study, the human body has a signature frequency of 100, and organic cotton is the same – 100. The study showed that if the number is lower than 100, it puts a strain on the body. A diseased, nearly dead person has a frequency of about 15, and that is where polyester, rayon, and silk register. Nonorganic cotton registers a signature frequency of about 70. However, if the fabric has a higher frequency, it gives energy to the body.  This is where linen comes in as a super-fabric.  Its frequency is 5,000. Wool is also 5,000, but when mixed together with linen, the frequencies cancel each other out and fall to zero. Even wearing a wool sweater on top of a linen outfit in a study collapsed the electrical field. The reason for this could be that the energy field of wool flows from left to right, while that of linen flows in the opposite direction, from right to left.

Like me, do you love to stand up for life, truth, and justice?

Proverbs 31:8, 9 says: “Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.”

Psalm 94:16: “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”

Ephesians 5;11: “Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

The following are three opportunities to be a voice by signing the following petitions:


Tragically, over 4,000 babies are aborted every day in our nation. That's over 1.6 million every year! The Supreme Court admits in Roe that once Congress establishes the personhood of unborn children, they must be protected by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution which explicitly says: "nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property." Therefore, the passing of this LIFE AT CONCEPTION ACT can end abortion in America!

To sign, go to: http://nationalprolifealliance.com/lacAM_petition.aspx?pid=ls01a&npla=EP17


Do you remember the fearless reporting of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt who helped expose Planned Parenthood selling baby parts? Now, California Attorney General, Zavier Becerra has filed felony charges against them which could put them in prison for years. All for standing up for life and justice. Please pray for them and please sign the petition in their defense.

April last year Target Corporation announced its stores would begin allowing men free access to the same restrooms and changing rooms as little girls. American Family Association immediately launched a boycott Target pledge which has garnered nearly 1.4 million signatures.

Did you read the article about making prayer bracelets on page 14 and 15 of the new issue? I was most impressed at the Teach Them Diligently Home School Conference how a number of mothers came up to me to show me their prayer bracelets. They already had some changed over to their other arm to show they had prayed for those children already for the day. It’s a great idea.


A 15-year old schoolboy in Minnesota wrote this prayer:

For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange, or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.

The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.

In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the State.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues, and cheeks.

They may outlaw guns, but FIRST the Bible,
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the “unwed daddy,” our Senior King.

It's “inappropriate” to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such “judgments” do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires, and totem poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns, the school's a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make,
Should I be shot, my soul please take!



Chamonix Boland has now taken over from Linnie Lues. She writes:

“Dear Above Rubies readers and precious mothers,

It is a true honor and great excitement that I sit down to write to you.

As a teenage girl and young adult, I would wait with great expectation and anticipation for the next issue of Above Rubies due in the mail any day. The first thing I would do was to read Linnie’s newsletter. How I admired her family. And then I would read each story with such longing for my motherhood journey to begin.

I have always wanted to be a mommy. From a very young age that is all I can remember ever wanting--to have sweet babies. It is such a joy, such a blessing, and oh what a privilege. But it is also a great responsibility and is challenging at times. That’s why I treasure Above Rubies even more than ever. Each encouraging word and article breathes new life, hope, and enthusiasm into my motherhood journey.

I feel honored to be a part of this ministry to the mothers and families in South Africa and surrounds.

I am a homeschooled girl. My dear mother is Martie du Plessis from “Dymanis.” For those of you that don’t know, Dynamis is a ministry that empowers families and helps parents that would like to home educate their children. My mom and I began this journey many years ago and we traveled through South Africa on a regular basis. I continued my home schooling, learning, serving, and growing while my mom assisted families.  God is always at work, connecting people for His purposes! This is how we met Linnie Lues and her family.

I am a passionate lover of horses and am blessed with 16 beautiful four-legged babies and married to a cattle farmer, my strong and steady Justin Boland. We live in the beautiful highland mountains bordering Lesotho in the Eastern Free State, just outside Clarens.

I married young at 21 in 2008 and God blessed us with babies soon after--Nicholas-Christion (7), Evangeline-Faythe (6), Caleb-Eathen (4), Maia-Hope (2) and Benjamin-Fergus (1). And hoping for more!  I have had beautiful births, the first three in hospital and the last two were home water births with my dear midwife Sue King, although our Benjamin was unplanned unassisted. 

I am passionate about Child Birth, Labour, and Breast Feeding and passionate about assisting mothers emotionally with their birth and nursing journey, either as a doulah or with Lamaze breathing, focus, and relaxation techniques. I follow Le Leche breast feeding guidelines when assisting lactating mothers. This is a passion I choose to share with other mommies because it is such a blessing to birth powerfully and nurse well. It marks the first on your journey as mother, to submit your body as a sacrifice to God through carrying, birthing, and nursing His children with joy and gladness!

We also assist on Justin’s family Guest farm, “Sunnyside Guest Farm,” with everyday mundane running of the business tasks, maintenance, and reservations as well as help look after Justin’s Granny (86) who runs the guest farm and lives on the property.

We home school our little blessings, although they mostly just live life with us, sharing in our many daily tasks pertaining to farm and guest farm life, working alongside us, and serving their family and others in that way. Now they too will share in this marvelous Above Rubies journey that can encourage and bless others and impact future generations of mothers and fathers!

We look forward to this special journey with you, and as Linnie says, become partners with you in Above Rubies SA as we join hands to keep Above Rubies coming to South Africa!

At last this is ready. Serene and Pearl of Trim Healthy Mama bring to you the most comprehensive exercise and healing program for women of all stages of life. There is nothing like it that has ever been produced before.

It's not just a DVD! This is what you get . . .

This 16-piece set includes:

Nine DVDs! Did you read that? Not one, but nine DVDs for every kind of exercise you need as a woman whatever your time of life.

Light exercise loop.

Medium exercise loop.

Heavy exercise band.

Exercise resistance tube with handles.

Exercise doorstop.

A big "Foundational Moves" poster you can pin up to explain what you are doing.

And a 37-page "Five Steps to Feminine Fit" booklet with scientifically proven methods on how to keep fit and yet not hurt your womanly body. And secrets you've never heard before! This information is worth the money, let alone everything else you receive.

And it's real and down-to-earth! Serene and Pearl write on the back of their DVD set: "Don't expect professional or perfect displays of graceful physical form and tutelage. We are just regular Mamas who have RESEARCHED OUR EYEBALLS OUT to find out the truth about how a woman's body should be trained.

"We are not Olympic superwoman or fitness models. You'll be glad to know there were no tight spandex leotards or push up bras used in the making of the DVD set. Our "jammies" and our "grungies" set the theme for a whole lot of laughter and fun. We've each had a large litter of children and get down to the nitty gritties of female friendly exercise in a real and raw expression of getting fit alongside you, not ahead of you."

"Fun . . . Isn't that how exercise should be? Who made the whole idea so boring and serious anyway? Give us a few minutes of your day and celebrate the joy of movement with us in your journey to a trimmer, healthier you."

~ Serene and Pearl

THM WORKINS focus on rebuilding your body from the inner core out. They are like no other exercise DVDs ever produced. Instead of harming your body, they heal it. These exercises help strengthen and heal your foundational layers before concentrating on outer muscles.

There are specific exercises for every woman-pregnant--or exercise fanatic! You can choose Gentle, Steady, or Thrill.



What the Bible says About Mothers

After 18 months of adding and editing this classic manual for motherhood, it is now available again! I know so many of you have been waiting for it. Just a minute . . . forgive me, you may still have to wait just "a tiny bit more." It's now in the process of being printed but we had a little trouble with the cover, but it's all happening!

Can you believe it? I first wrote this book 21 years ago! It was ready for an upgrade. I have poured my heart into this book. It is my legacy to you and the mothers of the world. Society portrays motherhood the opposite of God's plan, but this manual goes into God's Word to see what He wants to tell you. He didn't create you a mother and leave you stranded. He reveals His will to you. He shows you His plan. He makes known exactly how He wants you to mother. You 'll find it all in this manual.

I believe that every mother in the world should have this book. It is a Mother's Bible. Even if you have the old one, you'll want to purchase the new one. You'll want to purchase one for all the young mothers you know.

And it is perfect for Ladies' Bible Study Groups. There are questions at the end of every chapter for you to study and discuss together. There's nothing as heart-warming and encouraging as mothers getting together for fellowship and discussing the issues of motherhood. You may like to begin a Mother's Bible Study in your home once a week, or once a month (if you can only manage that). Gather ladies together to study, share, and pour your heart out to one another. And then have a pot luck lunch together.

If you would like to purchase 10 copies or more of THE POWER OF MOTHERHOOD, I will give you 40 percent discount. Call us at 1 877 729 9861 for this special deal.

NannyNursuryRhymes3Dcover wNANNY'S NURSERY RHYMES for the New Millennium

You will love this bright, happy, fun-illustrated nursery rhyme book for your children and grandchildren. It has a hard cover for durability for your children.

Did you know that nursery rhymes are not only fun, but helpful for your children's brains? They help them with memorization and language development. I raised our children on nursery rhymes (although I thought the traditional ones were rather ridiculous). That's why I wrote (along with my daughters) a new nursery rhyme book that is positive and helpful to the formation of their character.

You will love it.

 Would you like your children to get College Degrees without going to College?

On pages 10 and 11 of the new Above Rubies # 93, Kathy Cooksey shares her testimony. She also shares how she found the secret of her children getting their college degrees without going to college. Her oldest son got his first accredited college degree from home at only 16 years.

You'll find all the answers in Kathy Cooksey's book:

HisBA 3D smHis B.A. was Only $8K

Quick, Fun College for Ages 12 to 99 Years

Using humor, interesting stories, and an off-the-wall writing style, Kathy describes her own son's journey of getting an accredited bachelor's degree from home at the tender age of 16. She explains how this method works for adult students, transfers, homeschoolers, or anyone. Older students sometimes finish an entire degree with this method in only one year.

and save loads of money!






By Beverly Kirk

This is a desk, stand up, flip calendar to have on your table or sideboard. For 31 days, it gives a prayer for your children, featuring different character traits, and includes five or six Scriptures. For Example:

Day 1

Lord, may my children love You and Your Word (with six appropriate Scriptures).

Day 13

Lord, may my children have pure lips (with six appropriate Scriptures).

Day 28

Lord, may my children have discernment (with eight appropriate Scriptures).


It's a wonderful way to focus on the prayer and character trait for your children and choose one of the Scriptures for a memory verse. You will want to continue to use it month by month until you have all memorized all the Scriptures.

Oh yes, it also has a hymn (with the music) on the other side of the desk calendar which you can sing to.

I highly recommend it. Nancy

"So very thankful for your Prayer Calendar! I've incorporated it into my daily prayer time and it's a wonderful addition! The prayer topic, the appropriate scriptures, and daily hymns are so meaningful and well chosen."

"The prayer calendar is a wonderful tool for all moms. There is nothing more important for a mom to do than pray for her children. The calendar is very attractive and is a perfect size to carry with her. Each day has a meaningful selection of verses to turn our hearts to prayer."

"Tremendous tool for praying for our children and singing over them. Several times I have felt prompted to open it up and sing specific songs from the book.  What a blessing!"
