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

Simon & Saeed: Take Up Your Cross

max-lucadoIn last Thursday's edition of UpWords® with Max Lucado, listeners were reminded of Christ's mandate to believers in Luke 9:23:

"If any of you want to be my followers, you must forget yourself.  You must take up your cross each day and follow me."

Max talked about Simon from Cyrene, the man who Roman soldiers commanded to carry Jesus' cross to Golgotha.  "Simon did literally what God calls us to do figuratively: take up the cross and follow Jesus," reflects Max.

As I listened to the recount of Simon's cross-bearing, Pastor Saeed Abedini came to mind ...

Being Faithful in the Journey

Hobby Howard (L) and Matt Maguire (R) from FamilyLifeThis past weekend my husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary by attending the Weekend to Remember® in Ventura.  We realize there may be some folks who wonder why we'd attend a conference on our anniversary, especially if they knew this was our sixth time.  But actually, we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our journey as husband and wife.  Not only is it a great reminder of what's most important in our marriage--bringing honor to God--but a chance to look back on His blessings because of our faithfulness to each other and to ...

--Sambany, Mercy Ships® surgery recipient

"Six people had to carry me on their backs.  We walked for two days," Sambany says.

True Woman 201

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of leading a small group of women through the True Woman 101 Bible study written by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Mary Kassian.  It's a resource that has impacted thousands of women, of all ages, in churches nationwide and internationally.

As our group of women was challenged by the teaching of biblical womanhood, many shared that it opened up a whole new way of thinking, particularly in how they engage with their husband and children.  One of my dearest friends, who was raised in the church, said this study was a "game ...

Reaching Beyond to Change Everything

Mountain climbSometimes it's hard to have hope in the midst of a seemingly impossible circumstance:

My family member will never come to Christ.

We can't get the money we need in time.

The diagnosis looks really bad.

At this time of year I think of a group of people who would have had a very difficult time having hope.  I'm talking about Jesus' disciples on that Good Friday.  How are you supposed to think and feel after your Messiah has died?

Stories of the impossible made possible are what listeners are hearing this week on "Reach Beyond" with ...
