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

Asking the Tough Questions

Don Stephens KYTXWhen Don Stephens had the dream-come-true opportunity to meet Mother Teresa in the mid-1970s, he was taken aback by the frankness in her purposeful question:

"Why were you born?"

Not expecting such a direct query, Don said that he "struggled through describing to her what was a dream that didn't have a full plan-of a hospital ship serving the poorest of the poor, particularly in Africa."

I heard Don tell this story last Tuesday night.  He said that Mother Teresa asked a follow-up question that day in Calcutta that was just as straightforward as the first:

"What are you ...

What about student rights in public schools?

student-rights-handbookJim Garlow hasn't met a cultural issue he's reluctant to addressand when he does, it's with the aplomb of biblical authority.

Alliance Defending Freedom is the perfect partner in Jim's desire to transcend culture with biblical imperative.  It's why he speaks so forcefully about religious freedom, freedom of speech and the political arena
as a pastor and a commentator.

In this month's "The Garlow Perspective," Jim joins with ADF in presenting listeners with a special week (November 10-14) addressing the question of Student Rights in the public school system, grades K-12.

True Women in Training

It was such a blessing for me to be a part of Revive Our Hearts' True Woman '14 Conference, joining more than 8,400 women in Indianapolis and many more who watched via live webstream.  I love this picture taken at the conference because it serves as a reminder that whether we're a baby or a grown woman, we're all at different places in our spiritual growth and we're all in training.

Last month's conference was so well-received with women going home to their families and desiring to live out the teaching they received in regards ...

Final Days

I read the Twitter updates last night about Brittany Maynard and Lauren Hill – both women diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer.

Both life stories highlighted in the media on the same day . . . one choosing to take her last breath and one fulfilling her dream of playing in her first college basketball game.

"Same disease but two very different women. Lauren Hill will be remembered as a courageous and persevering role model for generations of young women. Sadly, Brittany Maynard will only be remembered as a suicide advocate. Lauren is squeezing out of her ...

Billy Graham on Heaven

As Billy Graham's 96th birthday rolls around on November 7th, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is encouraging churches and individual believers to use the My Hope outreach around that date to simply share Jesus with friends, family and neighbors who may be far from God.

A new video called, Heaven, with a never-before-seen message from Mr. Graham, was released last week to equip believers to share the Gospel in whatever setting they choose-church, home  . . . anywhere!

(You can order your free copy of the DVD on the BGEA web site.)

And radio stations are encouraged to share the My ...

A ministry based on “fun?”

barry-meguiarNo kidding!  It's how Barry Meguiar describes leading people to Christ.  And he's been having fun doing just that for over 40 years!

And in his daily feature "Revival Outside the Walls"—he's "igniting" listeners to turn every circumstance into an opportunity to share Christ.

Imagine buying the groceries for a single mom standing in line with you and telling her "God just wanted you to know He still loves you."  Not at all unusual for Barry to do.  And how many people do you suppose she's shared that story with?

Or how about the next ...
