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,

Evolving Technology and the Never Changing Gospel

I use to work summers at my dad’s TV stores.  We sold everything from TVs with picture tubes to solid state, from console TVs to portables.

Today, while not a fully fledged tech geek, I am fascinated with all the tech advancements which have changed the world . . . technology which has made the world a smaller place.

In my Sunday School Class this past weekend, technology helped us connect with a dear sister in Christ serving in Vietnam.  We Face-Timed Angela and studied a devotional lesson together - her sitting across the world in her living in Vietnam and our class ...

“It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This!”

Ever said that?

I’m sure, in many ways and at many times in your life, that has been true.  Like relaxing at the beach, watching the perfect sunset—a sky painted in deep hues of orange, blue, red and violet—“It doesn’t get any better than this!”  Or you might have uttered that phrase while enjoying a superb meal, savoring every delicious morsel.   

I confess the catchphrase has passed my lips more times than I deserve!  Most recently, it was while playing golf on the most amazing course I’ve ...

The Miraculous Truth

I do love my evening walks especially now when daylight lingers a little longer.  And those evening walks provide me an opportunity to listen to my favorite Bible teaching program, "Grace to You®," on my local radio station.

This past week, I listened as John MacArthur finished up his series on How to Study the Bible.  While most of the series covered the why and how, what was most revealing was learning about who can study the Bible.  Honestly, I had never contemplated that truth.  John summarized it well when he said, "You've got to be the ...

3 Things I Learned in a Week with Barry Meguiar

Barry-Meguiar-Joe-Emert-Jim-StewartIf you spend 60 seconds talking with Barry Meguiar, there's no doubt you'll be energized to share your faith.  Imagine spending four consecutive days with him.  At NRB, that's what I was privileged to do.  And WOWwhat a powerful time it was!

Barry demonstrates consistently that our job is "to turn every circumstance into an opportunity to lead people to Jesus Christ."  I left the Convention with three key lessons:

1)    "You don't have to be trained to love on people."

Whether it's praying for the waitress who shares her family struggles, offering a ...

The Incomparable Christ

Nancy Leigh DeMoss says, "What we believe about Jesus determines our ultimate destiny."  Just as Jesus asked his disciples, "who do you say that I am?" - It's the question every person must answer.

In this Lenten season, Nancy continues her teaching on "The Incomparable Christ," based on the J. Oswald Sanders classic of the same name.  She shares that there truly is no one like Jesus-not even close!

It is not enough to know that Jesus is incomparable.  We must steadfastly fix our eyes and our hope upon Him:

  • He alone is able to save us from our sin ...

God's Personal Brand

personal-brand-max-lucado-easterIn college, I studied business administration.  As part of the curriculum, I read online business articles, mostly found through LinkedIn.  It was fascinating to find how many articles focused on "personal branding." 

Personal branding is the idea of people marketing themselves as a brand, in order to build a reputation and network.  This was a whole new idea to me, and I was excited to learn about it!

As is the case for most college seniors, I felt unsure about what to expect directly after college.  Seeing personal branding as the way to guarantee success, I read dozens of articles ...
