With 50 years of experience, we "get" that things are always changing! That's why we've dedicated a section of our website to provide the very latest information about the speakers and ministries we serve--and about us, too. Come take a look at "what's new"--or use the sidebar options to take a deeper look at areas of particular interest. In case you wonder what we think, we've dedicated a space for commentary (including guest posts). And take a look at who's been to Ambassador lately in our own version of the Greenroom!

Kay Arthur Speaks at NRB Convention

In just a few days, many of us will gather together at the annual NRB Convention in Nashville (February 27-March 2).  I'm looking forward to this time of fellowship with partners in ministry as well as the opportunity to make new friends.

We're also excited to have Kay Arthur speak at the Women's Luncheon on Sunday.  Don't miss this special occasion to hear Kay in person as she shares from God's Word and encourages those of us in ministry.

Let me know if you'll be at the convention.  Would love to visit with you ...

Come See Bob Lepine Host Game Night at NRB!

NRB Game NightWhen I go to NRB, I spend all day, every day "on the job," networking and exploring ways to partner with others for the cause of Christ.  BUT, I make sure I block out time for the FamilyLife Game Night.  Laughter indeed does the heart good, and I guarantee your side will ache when the night is done.  Seeing emcee Bob Lepine try to dance to the trivia songs is just "wrong" - but hilarious. 

Whether you're good at trivia or not, you need to mark this Game Night "attendance mandatory" on your schedule!  (Doug Hastings, Manager of Administration/Moody ...

I dropped my 7 year old off at school the other day and as I watched her run off to the playground, I was reminded of the need kids have to fit in.  Almost immediately, Rebecca ran to meet her two best friends and show off her new outfit. 

Of course, a child's need to fit in isn't really unique . . .  my three were distinctly aware of this reality at a very young age-wearing the right clothes, hanging out with the cool kids and playing the popular sports were intentional decisions on their part.  

As parents, we pray that ...

Eternal Security -- Do You Have It?

That's often the question a Christian might ask a non-believer.  But did you know many Christians consider the question for themselves, wondering if by some word or deed they could lose their salvation?  I know I have.  And unfortunately that concern, and fear, can often paralyze believers from moving forward in their relationship with God. 

Well in March on "Grace to You®," John MacArthur tells listeners that God Won't Let You Go in a week-long study where he examines a doctrine that's often called "the perseverance of the saints."  We'll learn with assurance that there's ...

LuggageSaturday morning I was on the elevator in my condo building and a couple got on who were obviously "moving in." The man person was carrying a tower of shoe boxes and didn't appear all that happy about it!

I thought to myself--"whoa lady, you need to edit those shoe boxes!"

It's number one on my list for travelin' light, whether it's to NRB or any trip you take.

Guys, this is primarily for us gals, but if there's something here you can latch on to, be my guest.

First, shoes take up too much ...
