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

Nancy's Trip to the D.R.

If you follow Nancy Leigh DeMoss or Revive Our Hearts on Facebook, you may have seen the recent posts about Nancy’s trip to the Dominican Republic.  Nancy had a sweet time with the Aviva Nuestros Corazones team in the Dominican Republic.  In addition to a one-day retreat filled with sharing, singing, time in the Word, prayer, tears, laughter, and joy, she was also able to sit in on an ANC recording session at Radio Eternidad’s studio in Santo Domingo.

We are grateful for these partners who have helped bring the Spanish version of ROH to fruition and the ...

Fathers with Empty Arms

The value of every life is a message Brad Mattes has been sharing for nearly 40 years.  A father of four sons himself, celebrating babies and supporting their parents is something Brad holds as core to his own life commitment. 

As Father's Day approaches and our thoughts turn to the role of fathers in our lives,  Brad thinks about a particular type of father -- those  who won't have the opportunity to play a role in their children's' life.

"Every Father's Day, my mind goes to dads who'll never get to see or hold their babies ...

Defending a Church's Outreach to the Needy

Isaiah 58 ProjectA church helping the homeless find themselves homeless!

You can get the word out!

It's one thing to be punished for something you've done--but when it's for something you haven't done--there ought to be a law. 

When there's blatant injustice it's gratifying to know that the allied attorneys of Alliance Defending Freedom waste no time in getting involved.

LaPaz County, Arizona is forcing the Church of the Isaiah 58 Project of Arizona--one that's been publicly praised by the City of Quartzsize, Arizona for their work with the homeless--to close its doors by June ...

Ten Easy Ways to Share Your Faith

From expert research recently commissioned and completed by Revival Outside the Walls, it was discovered that over 80% of the un-churched say they want to know more about God.

"Ten easy ways to share your faith!"

From Barry Meguiar and Revival Outside the Walls

  1. CrowdMake intentional faith-sharing a priority for each day.
  2. Invite someone to church.
  3. Praise God in the midst of suffering.
  4. Tell your own story of coming to Christ.
  5. Intentionally love on people.
  6. Don't give up--people rarely accept Christ after one conversation.
  7. Watch for opportunities--a clerk, a waiter, a co-worker.
  8. Casually let people know you know God ...

Remembering John Wesley

John WesleyJohn Wesley-born June 17, 1703

Preacher, theologian and tireless advocate for religious freedom

I've served with Jim Garlow and "The Garlow Perspective" for over a decade as part of my responsibilities with Ambassador.  And during that time we've had many discussions about John Wesley, founder with his brother Charles and George Whitefield, of the Wesleyan Methodist movement, with which Jim Garlow has been aligned for so many years of his ministry.

I see profound similarities between the two men--educated thoroughly in church history, articulate theologians, preachers of God's Word, both tireless advocates for biblical clarity and religious ...

Lessons from Dad

As Father's Day approaches, I've thought about some of the lessons my dad taught me:

- Work hard - don't wait for accolades.

- Keep up with the news -- read the newspaper.

- Think more. Talk less.

In an upcoming "Joni and Friends®" broadcast, Joni Eareckson Tada shares about a significant lesson she learned from her father - the lesson of the lamplighter.

Joni's father told her the story about the lamplighter who would come out every day in his Baltimore neighborhood at dusk.  The lamplighter would come down the avenue lighting each light individually.

Her dad would tell her that ...
