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

What DOES It All Mean?

ROTW-Blog-January-2016-Barry-Meguiar-girl-child

"I've known Jesus since I was six, but I didn't give him my whole heart until today.  Now I understand what it actually means."

Chills ran down my spine.  I hung onto each word.  The 3rd grader who stated them with profound conviction is the same child who, during the past several months' Sunday School lessons, interrupted incessantly, paid little attention, and rushed out as soon as her mother was in sight.

I presumed she wanted little to do with church.  As her small group leader, I thought to myself every week, "At least she's coming ...

This weekend, I have invited several high school and college students who are called to preaching to co-preach with me at ...

Praying for Life

In two weeks, hundreds of thousands of people will join the March for Life in Washington, DC. What if there were three times that many praying?

As Eric Metaxas shared recently on "BreakPoint®," January 22nd is the 43rd anniversary of the worst Supreme Court decision in our nation's history.  With Roe v. Wade, seven robed men gave America some of the most permissive abortion-on-demand laws in the world.  Since that time, nearly 60 million unborn children have been killed in the womb.

January is the month so many American Christians memorialize the unborn through Sanctity of Life Sunday (January ...

Making 2016 a Year of Prayer

Do you have some goals in mind for the new year?  Many of us would love for this to be the year that we stick to our diet and exercise plan, get serious about a budget, or be more patient with family and friends.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth says, "While these are worthy goals, they're not what I am placing in my number one spot . . . this year, I am asking the Lord to make me a true woman of prayer.  As believers, we know the power of prayer cannot be overestimated.  Consistent, fervent, faith-filled praying for our marriages, families, churches ...

Heart for the Disabled Week

On my nightstand is a ceramic heart a friend gave me with a little slip of paper inside.  On the paper, she wrote Matthew 6:21. 

I keep the heart in this prominent spot to remind me to think about where I invest my time, energy and resources.  I want (and need) to be cognizant that where I make these investments is where my treasures are and, there is where my heart will be.

The main question Matthew 6:21 prompts me is "Am I focusing on serving others or is my priority my own to-do list?" I don't ...
