Becoming an EX, Surrendered to the Lord

This past weekend at the True Woman '10 Conference in Indianapolis, over 6,000 women (including 400 teenage girls!) said "Yes, Lord," waving their white flag of surrender and embracing God's call on their lives.

One of my favorite stories from the conference was the group of women who came wearing brightly colored T-shirts, each labeled with a different "EX" statement such as:

EX-Hypocrite

EX-Idolater

EX-Narcissist

EX-Diva

And EX-Coward (as seen in this picture, speaking with conference emcee, Bob Lepine)

What a visible statement these women made as a reflection of the work that God has done in their ...

Vision is such an important ...

What Kind of Legacy Am I Leaving?

Have I done enough to impart a godly legacy? 

Will the sins of my past mar that legacy? 

Having just returned from the True Woman conference in Indianapolis, I feel certain many women found themselves asking these very questions.  I sure did.  The reality that we all leave a legacy behind - good or bad - was enough for us to stop and ask "What can I do today to leave a godly legacy?"

"FamilyLife Today," (a ministry partner of True Woman) presents a timely series of broadcasts in October on The Profound Power of a Legacy.  Over two weeks (10/4-10 ...
