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!

Where Faith and Politics Meet

There is no doubt that this is one crazy election year and I, like you, have been trying to sort through the confusion as I consider my voting choices.  I know that you and your listeners are likely doing the same.  How do we answer the questions, "should Christians vote in this election," and "how should we vote?" 

These questions were posed to Pastor Jim Garlow and after giving his answer through various platforms, he composed a well written, rational piece that was recently published in Charisma Magazine.  As of this posting, the article has passed 900,000 shares and ...

Celebrating 25 Years of BreakPoint®!


My son started his sophomore year of high school today at a school marking its 50th year with the motto, “Tradition Never Graduates.”  This phrase sticks with me as I consider an important milestone for “BreakPoint®,” a daily radio program marking its 25th year. 

Many BreakPoint® station partners have aired the program since its launch on September 2, 1991.  It's become a daily fixture, or "tradition," in your program lineup for many years and even after Chuck's passing, you have continued to carry this important and insightful commentary ...

What Esther & My Dreams Have In Common


I had a dream a few months ago that the Lord told me about my purpose

He didn't say what it was or lay out a plan or anything like that...He just told me that I had one. 

I was raised by strong Christian parents and my husband currently serves as an Assistant to Rick Warren (author of "Purpose Driven Life"), so it's safe to say that, especially in our current season, I've been aware of the unique and important purpose that the Lord has for each and every one of us.

However, hearing those words ...

The Power of a Changed Heart


"If He doesn't change our circumstances, He changes our hearts to meet our circumstances." - Max Lucado

Recently, Steve Douglass reflected on these words in a recent edition of "Making Your Life Count". He reminds us of the power of a changed heart by posing the question, "Just how have you seen God's grace evident in your own life?"

For me, I've seen the sufficiency of God's grace play out through two of my friends that recently went through a miscarriage.

While they were absolutely devastated, angry, and confused at why the Lord would allow this, I ...

My Favorite Olympic Moment

My favorite Olympic moment is one that epitomizes sportsmanship.

New Zealand runner Nikki Hamblin was lying on the track, after a heavy fall and the reality of her chances at medaling, over. Unexpectedly, she felt a hand on her shoulder and heard someone saying to her, "Get up. We have to finish this."

It was American Abbey D'Agostino, offering to help. In response, Hamblin recalls thinking, "Yup, yup, you're right. This is the Olympics Games. We have to finish this."

Both runners were on their feet and continuing in the race, but D'Agostino was in pain. She ...
