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

Why Are Christians So ...

love-barry-meguiar-revival-outside-the-walls-evangelism

If you talk to Barry Meguiar for any length of time, his genuine passion for sharing the love of Christ is quickly apparent.  And his heart for evangelism is front-and-center in every conversation!

At the NRB Convention in February, Barry spoke with station leaders and mentioned how somber it is to Google the phrase, "Why are Christians so" and let Google's predictive search fill in the rest of your query.

Google auto-fills the end of that question to include the following words:

  • Judgmental
  • Happy
  • Homophobic
  • Ignorant
  • Intolerant
  • Judgmental
  • Crazy
  • Fake
  • Self-righteous
  • Unlike their Christ

Where to Turn When You Forget the Plan

"Mom, is there anything that will make me warm?"

As I sat on my favorite bench overlooking the bay—a cherished reading place—I couldn't help but smile at the family adjacent me.

After an evening of swimming, dusk approached, and the three-year-old son became cold.  So he said to his mother, "I'm ready to get out now."

She responded with plans for a hot bath and they agreed to leave immediately to implement the strategy.  Not 60 seconds later—as if he'd forgotten everything they just discussed—the son asked, "Mom, is there anything that will ...

Passing the Baton

ormshOver my four years as a student at Azusa Pacific University, I was blessed with many things, but one of my favorites has been a solid community that's extended beyond campus and into the "real world."

I not only made some of my best friendships during my time there, but stepped into post-grad with older women who are intentional about pouring into me, and younger women who are eager to learn from and with me.

While all of these relationships are important in their own way, there's something so special about being loved, supported, challenged, and grown by ...

"Who's Who" on Focus on the Family



Have you seen who's on the upcoming guest list for Focus on the Family?  It's a "who's who" of popular authors, speakers, and all-around fascinating people.  More importantly, these men and women love Christian radio and have a heart to see families thrive.  They are God's people, the kind Paul told Timothy to be like when he said, "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)

What a blessing to have access to such ...

Like Drinking From a Firehose!

We recently received an email from a station manager who said that reading through all of our emails was "like drinking from a firehose!"  I think he meant it in a positive way while making the point that we can easily get overloaded with information.  Admittedly, we do send out a lot of info with the desire to communicate important news and happenings from the ministries we serve.

But, I do feel his pain!  Most days, I have a hard time keeping up with the news headlines of the day.  Developments in technology and social media networks have changed the ...

Jim Garlow is Well Versed

Christians are bombarded with new social and political issues every day.  From social justice to sexual identity, we are groping for answers to today's burning political questions.  What should a Christian say when confronted with these confounding issues?  How can a person of faith use the Bible as a resource when navigating these cultural minefields?

Pastor Jim Garlow presents "Well-Versed: Biblical Answers to Today's Tough Issues," the ultimate scripture-based guide for Christians looking for answers, reassurance, and resources on topics including Israel, terrorism, debt, taxes, abortion, minimum wage, bioethics, the role of government, war, Islam, entertainment, and many ...
