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,

Focusing on Our Savior

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

That was one of the themes of #NRB15 for me. 

We've seen many changes in Christian radio through the years -- technology and delivery platforms have emerged, social media has come on the scene,  ministry organizations, speakers and industry leaders may have changed,  and yet, the most important element of the NRB remains the same - our steadfast commitment to sharing the saving message of Jesus Christ.

There were no more poignant reminders to me about this than the many moments Joni Eareckson Tada led a group of NRB attendees in ...

Gilligan's Island and the Seven Deadly Sins

"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip, that started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship...”

When I read those words, I actually hear the tune in my head.  Maybe you do too.  Clearly, I spent way too many hours growing up watching this very frustrating and banal sit com. 

I confess, I’m a little ashamed that I know the words to that song.  It seemed like everyone at a recent birthday party knew too.  One of the guests actually ...

What We All Need This Easter

Carter Conlon_TSC"Much of what is taught in this generation, and even in a couple that have already passed, is simply a gospel that looks to see what it can gain from the Cross of Jesus Christ."  —Carter Conlon

As a young child in Sunday School, I remember answering the question, "Why do we need to ask Jesus into our hearts?" with, "So we don't go to hell."  And in my years of volunteering in children's Sunday School, I've heard that answer repeated frequently.

It occurred to me yesterday that, while kids are learning about humanity's sinful nature ...

How To "Share Life Today"

John SorensenI was blessed to be born into a Christian home and came to saving knowledge of Jesus Christ at a very young age.  Even though I went to public schools through high school, I can't recall a time when I had my faith seriously challenged.  But that all changed when I went to college.

In the fall of 1991, I started at Columbia College Chicago, a very secular, liberal Arts and Communications school on Michigan Avenue.  From my first day on campus, my faith in Christ was under attack by professors and students alike! With the Lord's help ...

Anne Graham Lotz Weekly Radio Program

The older I get, the more I'd like to think that I'm focusing on the things which really matter . . . less about the frivolous day-to-day things and more about the eternal.   This is a milestone year for me as I turn 50 and with that marker, comes even more introspect.

In an upcoming "Living in the Light" radio program, Anne Graham Lotz asks "when night comes, either by death or rapture . . . five minutes before that takes place, what will you wish you had done differently in your life?"

She goes on to ask, "Will you wish you'd taught ...

Stepping Out in Faith

Walking out in faithWe know God wants us to step out in faith, but I have to admit my doubts often step in.  I wonder if I'm really hearing God correctly, and if this decision will turn out to be a wrong choice I'll regret. 

I was reading Elizabeth George's "A Woman after God's Own Heart Devotional" and read a story about Rebekah.  Elizabeth writes, "When Rebekah was asked to travel to a faraway place to become the wife if Isaac, her words were, "I will go" (Genesis 24:58).  "I will go...with a stranger."  "I will go ...
