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 Message of Life

I was back on my alma mater's campus this past week.  Much has changed since the late 1980's and yet, much has remained the same - the campus is full of young men and women ready to learn and change the future!  And, there are many who stand ready to come alongside to help mold and shape the mindset of the student body - to feed into them and educate their worldview.

More than ever, the urgent need for organizations like the Life Issues® Institute is paramount.  It's crucial that the importance of every life - from womb to tomb ...

"Become like little children ..."

little-girl-flowersSometimes kids surprise us in the best of ways.  Over the weekend, my church hosted "I Believe Sunday"where we laid out the plan of salvation for 2nd and 3rd graders, followed up with the invitation to accept Christ.

I led a discussion group of 10 girls who had just accepted Jesus for the first time.  We talked about what it means to be a child of God, how to grow in Christ's likeness, and why we need to share Jesus with others.

When I asked, "What are some ways you can tell your friends about Jesus ...

"At Your Word I will Let Down the Nets"


Lately I've been presented with things I don't want to do.

People I don't want to see. Love I don't want to give. Control I don't want to give up.

Can you hear the Lord at work in me yet?

In one of my quiet times with the Lord this week, I asked Him which book of the Bible to read...I felt led to read in Luke  specifically Luke chapter 5.

In this chapter, Jesus is speaking to His people from a boat in Lake Gennesaret.  When He is finished, He instructs Simon to ...

Not Just a Hobby!


While most 18-year-olds are posting selfies and bingeing on Netflix, Hannah Leary is memorizing books of the Bible.  Not just verses, not just chapters, and not just a book or twothis National Bible Bee (NBB) competitor has committed 10 entire books of the Bible to memory!

In a recent World Magazine article, Hannah says of her six-year NBB involvement, "At first, yes, I was just reading theological words.  But then it started coming alive."

The other 359 students who make it to finals would probably say the same.  Even if they don't take home a prize, these young ...
