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

Providence

Providence.

That's what came to mind when I read the Today's Christian Woman's article on Joni Eareckson Tada. As I've struggled this past week with a potentially significant challenge, my eyes focused in on her response to the question about dealing with the difficulty of persevering through crisis:

When that happens, I remind myself of 1 Samuel 1, when Samuel put up a memorial, his Ebenezer, after the Philistine victory and proclaimed, "Thus far the LORD has helped us." I think about that all the time and tell myself, Thus far the Lord has helped me ...

The Bible on the steps of the United States Capitol

John Eliot is one of the best-known Christian missionaries of early American history. Cambridge educated, a gifted translator and linguist, he quickly mastered the Massachusetts Algonquian language to speak in the dialect of the tribes that occupied the New England territory.  His Algonquian translation of the New Testament in 1661 was the first Bible printed in America!

It wasn't until a century later that an English Bible would be printed in America.

With the onset of the American Revolutionary War, the British placed an embargo on any Bibles being exported to America-as well as making it illegal to print ...

Reframing Reality through Biblical Worldview

Janet-Mefferd-Today-radio-news

"What usually helps us get through hard times is knowing they're going to end," the professor calmly said.  I sat in his office, staring silently at him from across the large oak desk.  It was my final year of college and big life decisions awaited me.  I needed answers.  I yearned for guidance.  I craved input.  Ultimately, I felt hopeless.

Have you ever felt that way?


We all have.  No matter the trial you're facing, there's a lot of power when someone comes alongside you to say, "There's more than this.  Hold on."

In my professor ...
