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!

A Non-Threatening Gospel Presentation ... Doesn't Exist!

Bible-faith-sharing-john-sorensenIf you've been watching the news or listening to talk radio, you no doubt have heard of Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed in contempt of court for not issuing marriage licenses to homosexual couples.  This article is not about the appropriateness of her actions or the larger issue of religious liberty.  Rather, it is about the absolute hatred unleashed upon Kim Davis for her Christian convictions by the Secular Left and a culture that is increasingly hostile to Christianity.  Kim Davis was mocked as a hypocrite for being previously married and divorced multiple times before ...

A Decade of Daily Light for Daily Living®

The Bible teaches that wisdom is extremely valuable.   As seasons of life come and go, as my children become young adults and as I experience the passing of years, the more wisdom I seek  . . . solid, Biblical wisdom. 

I have two favorite Bible verses about wisdom -- Job 12:12 reads, "With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding."  I also appreciate what Proverbs 13:20 says about wisdom, "He who walks with wise men will be wise."

While I may not "walk" with spiritual giants like Anne Graham Lotz, I do spend time with her as she shares ...

The Best Kind of Lemonade


Can you imagine getting engaged and planning out the whole wedding only to discover that it would be called off entirely last minute?

In a recent feature of "The Mercy Minute®," Don Stephens talks about Phil Laboon, CEO of an internet marketing company, who went through just that.  He lost his bride and his $15,000 dream wedding went down the drain.

Phil, however, decided to make the best out of a heartbreaking situation.  He turned the wedding reception into a charity event benefitting Surgicorps International, an organization that provides free "medical care to disadvantaged individuals around the world". 

Phil ...

Blessings and Curses

This past weekend, Revive Our Hearts welcomed 2,200 women's ministry leaders and many more via the live stream, at Revive '15, a unique conference for women who teach women.

I was able to participate in watching some of the sessions via the web stream and was both convicted and blessed by messages from Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Jen Wilkin.  These messages will be provided at their website soon, but just wanted to share a small part of Jen Wilkin's teaching from James 3.

She reminded us that "words have the power to create or destroy."  Ouch.  She ...
