Sin Creeps In

…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles… Hebrews 12: 1 Living near Fort Knox, Kentucky, I grew up hearing the massive booms of tank fire as troops trained for missions.  Nowadays, Army helicopters  from the base often fly low in formation in a direct path over my house!  I […]

Ministering to Women

It wasn’t until just recently that I was ministered to as a woman. I had been ministered to as a child, as a teen, and as a college student, but never as a woman. I didn’t realize how badly I needed to be ministered to as a woman until I felt God convicting me to […]

By Faith, Part 2

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”–Hebrews 11:1 My previous post tackled the definition of faith based on this Scripture.  Faith is substance and evidence.  In a ladies’ Bible study I just finished teaching, we spent 6 weeks unpacking faith.  One Bible story we kept referring to […]

#Womenatwork4God

Women’s ministry has its challenges.  Leadership, schedules, volunteers, Bible studies, classroom space, attendance, mission trips, etc. all lend themselves to the difficulty of establishing and overseeing—especially for the smaller church. Nevertheless, women’s ministry has so much to offer! I like to think of women’s ministry as #womenatwork4God, equipping, encouraging, and enlisting other women along the way.  (Love […]

Winter Blahs

Winter blahs…..ugh! I experience them every winter from the time all Christmas decorations are packed away until the first blooms of spring! February is especially difficult for me. My mom passed away last February and my late husband’s birthday falls in this month as well. Then right smack in the middle of the month is […]

It Is Well With My Soul

Not to be too personal with my first post, but I want to ask you, dear sister, is it well with your soul? Horatio Spafford, the writer of the famous song It Is Well With My Soul, suffered a horrendous tragedy. Two years following the death of his young son of four, Spafford’s four daughters […]

Life’s Not Fair

There are two quotes that I attribute to my mother.   “No one will ever love you like your mother.”  “Life’s not fair.” We learn that life isn’t fair at an early age.  Other kids have cooler toys, name brand clothes, nicer cars, go on vacations, have better jobs, no health issues, family problems – oh […]

How’s your heart?

Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” If we knew we had a physical heart condition, we would most certainly want to see a cardiologist for treatment. But what about our heart, the one that beats our character and integrity? As I meditated on Proverbs 4:23, I asked […]

The Heart of Leadership

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  Men and women will declare their love for each other, buying boxes of chocolates, bouquets of flowers, and other displays of their undying love. Many engagements and weddings occur on this day as well.  Oh, to lead with love from the inside out! The day would be so […]

Brave Faith

~Trusting God with who He says YOU are~ I’ve had this whole Holy initiative (we’ll call it) hit me like a ton of bricks! Sort of out of nowhere and sort of NOT. You understand how some things you know to be true and then there are some things that you KNOW to be true! […]
