Revive '13: Women Helping Women

I have a real passion for helping women realize the peace, hope, and strength that's available to them in Christ.  While serving as a leader in women's ministry at my church, I found the experience to be one of the most rewarding yet challenging times in my faith journey.  When you see the impact that a godly woman can have in her marriage, family, church and community, it makes the investment worthwhile.

The ministry of Revive Our Hearts serves as a resource for women and in particular, those who serve the church as pastor's wives, Bible study ...

Life Issues® Today

My 17 year old son has a smart phone. Of course, it's never far from reach.

While he does his fair share of texting on it, the phone has also become a great tool to keep him updated.

He now uses the phone to receive emails from the church youth group, school cross country and CNN (thanks to a forward-thinking U.S. government teacher who made the CNN subscription part of their class curriculum). 

At a moment's notice, my son knows about a church activity, a team practice update or about what ...

Take 5

 

There is absolutely nothing trivial about today … a day of national import though the events of 2001 this day seem to have too quickly faded from our memory.  For most of us, though, a photo or newsclip will bring a rush of vivid memory … “what I was doing when I heard about the Towers” … it comes to mind with aching clarity.  So … I cannot post the usual links in Take 5 today … but here are a few that I feel are highly worthy of revisiting, recalling what 9/11 means to our country – and to those who lost their lives ...

Life of Jesus: Each Day on Haven Today

Life of PiHave you seen the movie, The Life of Pi?

I did over the weekend.  I wanted to see what all the hullabaloo was about: more than $600 million in revenue, eleven Academy Award nominations and four Oscars.  Having now seen it, I wish I'd have been in a theater as the CGI was amazing.  No wonder Ang Lee won best director!

If you're unfamiliar with the book or movie, it's an enamoring, drifting trek across the Pacific.  After having lost his entire family, the central character, Pi, spends endless days and nights alone in a lifeboat with ...
