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: 


Godly Speech

Love of Husband

Love of Family

Love of Home


Personal Discipline


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!

What Road are You On?

Are you banking your salvation on a past event?  That's one of the concerns John MacArthur raised in Monday's broadcast of "Grace to You®."  He went on further to say that it's no proof that a person is not a Christian because they can't point to an event. (Candidly, I've often wrestled with both sides of this, especially when I think of loved ones in my family.)

As I continued to listen to John's message it became clear that it's just as important to understand the characteristics that do not verify the reality ...

No-Nonsense News from a Biblical Perspective

"We want to keep on getting the Word of God into the people of God—and continue keeping people informed."

Those were Janet Mefferd's words as she accepted the "Watchman on the Wall" Award from Bott Radio Network at the 2016 NRB Convention.  Based on Isaiah 62:6, the award is presented to an individual "for faithfully shining the light of God's Word in our generation."

Reflecting on the months since Janet Mefferd Today launched (we're celebrating six months on the air on March 14th!), I am reminded and astounded ...

Anniversaries Matter

If you've been listening to "FamilyLife Today" lately, you've heard Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine mention that this year marks their 40th anniversary as a ministry.  That is a significant milestone and very much worth celebrating! 

But what Dennis makes clear in this video is that..."What we're really celebrating is all the anniversaries we've made happen because of what God has done through the ministry of FamilyLife."

Here's a portion of a letter that went out to their constituents in January that explains further what they hope to accomplish in this milestone year ahead ...

Twitter This from Joni Eareckson Tada

There are many reasons why ministry through social media is on the radar for these days. Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn provide ministries and radio stations opportunities to focus their social efforts to share their story, cultivate relationships and open up two-way communication in ways never before possible.

Most importantly, social media provides one more key opportunity for ministries and radio stations alike to deepen relationships and engagement with listeners which prayerfully, opens doors for life changing messages. 

The fact that there are 65 million Twitter users in the U.S. is one more motivator for ministries ...

It's Time to Cry Out!

It was a privilege to be with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and the Revive Our Hearts team at the recent NRB Convention in Nashville.  While there, Nancy met with station partners and shared what the Lord has placed on her heart and what she's asking women to do this year.

Nancy shares  . . .

"You don't have to look far to know our world is in trouble. Just read the headlines, and you'll see endless accounts of violence, perversion, breakdown of families, and people mocking things of the Lord. We can feel helpless and impotent in the face of such ...
