Just Scripture

Sometimes Scripture just needs to speak for itself. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in […]

As we celebrated the resurrection this Easter, I spent some time reading in each of the four gospels, focusing on the women who discovered that the tomb was empty. I love so much about this. I love that it was the women that were there first. I love that they were doing what they could […]

Frozen Blooms

It was going to be beautiful. The Jane Magnolia that sits some 30 feet from my living room window, the window where I daily drink my coffee and study my bible, was covered in buds. With the backdrop of the neighbor’s white picket fence, and the lake beyond, it was going to be stunning and […]

Is Discipleship the Culture of YOUR Women’s Ministry?

That Old Coonhound, Sadie

Our family has a coonhound that we foster for our local animal shelter. Her name is Sadie, she has a strikingly shiny, sleek, rich black and red coat. She’s gorgeous to look at when the sun shines down on her back. When she wandered in, she was very malnourished and timid. It took us weeks to get […]
