You Can Be Anybody You Want

I have heard so many times spoken to me or those around me, as a slogan for a motivational speech or a pep talk from a teacher, a parent’s encouragement to their child and a mantra for this generation: You can be anybody you want to be.  Even just reading those words now may make […]

Suffering to Resurrection

“Everybody wants resurrection, but nobody wants suffering!” I read this quote recently in an article I was reading, and it caused me to stop in my tracks and ponder its truth. What a revolutionary quote, especially for our world today! In the Easter season that we just celebrated, we are reminded overwhelmingly of the suffering […]

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 […]

Dinosaur Eggs produce Patience!

We are a homeschool family, our weeks are full to bursting with spelling bees, math drills, and geography trivia for fun learning! When our kiddos do really well, we treat them with a few dollars and drive out to our local Dollar General. They get their own little yellow basket and scan the isles for that […]

Even If

The Christian band, MercyMe, has a new song out called Even If. Take time today to look this song up and listen to it, TODAY! This song describes a God who is able to remove us from our pain, but even if He chooses for us to endure it for a season, He promises to […]

Women’s ministry can have life-changing, generational-bondage-breaking effects in your church and beyond.  If the culture of women’s ministry is one where Christian women become disciples who make disciples, the very heart of God is expressed and experienced. At least six factors need to be present in women’s ministry to make disciples who make disciples: Prayer […]

Increase Volunteerism in Women’s Ministry

Every church or situation is different, but sometimes even large churches are challenged when securing volunteers. Here are ways you can increase your volunteerism (get more people involved in ministry): 1.      Pray. Ask God to help you see what […]

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 […]
