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!

How Ordinary Were the Disciples?

"A dozen men under the power of the Holy Spirit are a more potent force than the teeming masses whose initial enthusiasm for Jesus was apparently provoked by little more than sheer curiosity."  -John MacArthur, Twelve Ordinary Men

It's easy to think of Jesus' twelve disciples as titans of virtue, faith, and courage-men the average Christian can admire, but not emulate.  Fortunately, that's not the case.  In fact, Peter, James, John, and the rest of the apostles were profoundly ordinary, yet God used them in extraordinary ways.  This month John MacArthur's going to show your listeners how ...

When Your Church Friends Aren’t Saved


"It's so easy to presume that all the unsaved people in our lives are outside the walls of our churches."  Barry Meguiar

Growing up as a homeschooled pastor's kid who lived on the church property, it seemed my only time outside of the "Christian bubble" was when I worked at the local grocery store or attended a birthday party for friends without Christian family.

My family and I spent so much time at church—with Dad the only paid staff member for the rural congregation, we were the "voluntold" help.

People we didn't know, knew who we ...

What You Don’t Have is Less Than What You Do


This month at church, we've been teaching the 3rd grade Sunday School class about various components of contentment.  In reality, my group of 8-year-old girls has enlightened me just as much as I've coached them.  Last Sunday's discussion prompt was, "What do you lose today by focusing on what you used to have?"

I was concerned the kids might not fully connect with the messageassuming they didn't have much to look back on in their lives.  After all, they're only eight years old.  Boy, was I wrong.

After putting the question out for ...

What's Your Story?

Happy International Nurses Day!

nurses dayDon't you just love it when someone, whether it be a stranger or a friend, brightens your day with kindness?

I experienced this just yesterday while my dentist struck up a conversation with me during my x-rays. We talked about life, work, family- the list goes on! I remember thinking to myself that she didn't have to give me the time of day as she prepped me for my cleaning.  Yet she took her time and took interest to transform my trip for the better. 

It's easy to go through the motions of our "everyday", but to ...
