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,

Happy International Nurses Day!

nurses dayDon't you just love it when someone, whether it be a stranger or a friend, brightens your day with kindness?

I experienced this just yesterday while my dentist struck up a conversation with me during my x-rays. We talked about life, work, family- the list goes on! I remember thinking to myself that she didn't have to give me the time of day as she prepped me for my cleaning.  Yet she took her time and took interest to transform my trip for the better. 

It's easy to go through the motions of our "everyday", but to ...

The Worst and Best of Times

One of my favorite literary quotes is from a book published nearly 200 years ago, Charles Dicken's "A Tale of Two Cities."  It's the well-known introduction, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times . . . it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair...   "

In many ways, Dicken's description of the contrasts and comparisons between London and Paris during the French Revolution is as applicable today as it was in the late 1700s  . . . there are major conflicts between good ...

Do You Believe in Aliens?

This Could Be YouDo you believe in aliens?

Half of Americans polled in 2013 said they believe extraterrestrial life exists.  National Geographic magazine reported in 2012 that 77% of Americans think Aliens have visited Earth. (Have you been to Vegas?  I think they're right!)

Of course the people who believe in UFOs and their occupants are the same people who believe professional wrestling is real, Walt Disney's frozen head is buried under the Matterhorn and our government can solve all our problems. 

On the other hand, some theologians speculate that God may have not limited his creation to this earth.  After ...

Super Mom or Supermom? There's a Difference!

"Mothers have to remember what food each child likes or dislikes, which one is allergic to penicillin and hamster fur, who gets carsick and who isn't kidding when he stands outside the bathroom door and tells you what's going to happen if he doesn't get in right away. It's tough. If they all have the same hair color they tend to run together." - Erma Bombeck

There are times when being a mom is anything but funny. That's why I always appreciated the humor of Erma Bombeck.  Her outlook on motherhood (and family life) often provided ...

Your Prayer and God's Power

Do you ever feel like you're not very good at prayer?  This week on Revive Our Hearts, Dave and Kim Butts will show an effective way to pray.  Anyone can follow their advice.  They join Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth in helping listeners understand why prayer is so important.

At a time when it's easy to look around at the growing darkness of our world and feel hopeless, listeners will be encouraged in hearing that this is actually a time of great hope.  Desperate times present a big opportunity, and trying times draw us closer to God.

Tune in for ...
