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!

The Only Thing to Fear is Fear Itself

carterWhat makes you afraid?

I'm currently at the peak of wedding planning, and while it's such an exciting, joyful, and fun time, there are moments of fear that can creep in if I'm not careful.  Even though I'm 100% sure of the decision, the weight and reality of it all can hit both my fiancé and me in little pockets when we least expect it.

In a recent broadcast of "It's Time to Pray," Pastor Carter Conlon touched on the topic of fear, stating:  

Someone once said, "The only thing to fear is fear itself ...

5 Ways to Connect with Museum of the Bible at NRB


What is your vision—the reason your organization exists?  In college, one of the most memorable courses I took was Nonprofit Management.  With this question of vision, the professor told the class each word in a vision statement must be both strategic and essential.  When he turned us loose to practice writing our own visions, one of his criterion was, Could this description fit comfortably onto a T-shirt?  If it's too long, start over.

Every time I read Museum of the Bible's vision, I think about that class.  Museum of the Bible (MOTB) exists "to invite all people ...

What DOES It All Mean?


"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 ...
