Ministry Updates

My deepest desire is to be a Woman after God's Own Heart . . .  a godly woman.  One molded by and used of God.  And, without God's leading and intervention it won't happen.  That is my daily prayer. 

Elizabeth George (A Woman after God's Own Heart) says that praying to become a godly woman is a worthy prayer, but she also asks, "What does a godly woman do?  How does she act?  What is it about her that marks her out as a godly woman?" 

Those are the answers I need.   Elizabeth points to Titus 2:3-5 where you will find the character qualities of a godly woman.  She says the 10 most important priorities for women are: 

Wisdom

Godly Speech

Love of Husband

Love of Family

Love of Home

Purity

Personal Discipline

Goodness

Ministry to Others

Christ-like Behavior

If you share Elizabeth's and my prayer to become a godly woman, read Titus 2:3-5 and ask God to show you how to develop these qualities in your life.  It won't be an overnight change, but it will be well worth the end results! 

Blessings,

Sheri Cooper

My First Seder

Seder

From sunset April 22 to sunset April 30, Jews all over the world are gathering for the festival of Passover--commemorating Israel's deliverance from bondage in Egypt, described in Exodus 12.

The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, " ...each man is to take a lamb for his family ... take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses ... and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt."

For the first time this year, I participated in a ...

Listener Feedback is Worthy of Praise

Focus on the Family Listener Feedback

The breaking news alert, your friend's diagnosis, the call from the mechanic about your car.  Some days feel like they're full of anything but good news.  But you and I know how we feel isn't the whole picture.  The Apostle Paul must have had this in mind when he penned the words found in Philippians 4:8:

"Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things."

Have you thought about, really thought ...

How Your Soul is Like a Hard Drive

woman-typing-upwords-april-2016


"Your brain is dead."

Jon's words pierced.  In our office, Jon Davis, Manager of Technical Services, often uses medical metaphors to explain computer problems to us.  I find those parallels extremely helpful.  This week, my PC's hard drive crashedand in one instant, my daily partner in productivity couldn't remember its identity, perform tasks, or recall the last two years we'd spent together.

Its brain was dead.  I was mortified.

After a day of assembling, activating, and programming the new hard drive, Jon had my machine up and running again.  All was well.


But rebellion struck ...

One Minute Mother's Day Reflections

My mom has been an amazing blessing in my life and in the lives of my children.  Esperanza, which means hope in Spanish, has lived with my children and I for over a decade.  She is 80 now and I'm keenly aware of how fleeting and precious time with her is now.

Brad Mattes notes in a special Mother's Day "Life Issues®" radio series that Mother's Day is the perfect time to recall all the things your mom has done for you throughout your life:

"First and foremost she gave you life.  Your mom struggled through the ...
