Do you know a Military Wife?

This story came across my email this past week and I thought to myself, now this is why I do what I do. No, this has nothing to do with me personally, but sometimes I get caught up in the minutiae of work and need to be reminded of how God is working and how I'm so blessed to be even such a small little part in His work. Terry lives in Millington, TN, a large Navy/Marine military base and … [Read more...]

Deeper Still Cupcake Wars 2010

Now granted, we dealt with a multitude of serious topics at this past weekend's Deeper Still in Birmingham. Beth reminded us about the lost art of treasure. Priscilla encouraged us to empty our quivers. Kay taught the entire book of Matthew. And in the midst of all that great teaching, there was also a whole bunch of fun.

Some fun Twitter-related news

I know that it's been Simulcast Central around here this week (everyone's just so excited! so very excited!), so I want to pass along one additional bit of sort-of-simulcast-related news before I forget.

It's also been a great place to keep up with a lot of the LifeWay Women team members for … [Read more...]

Faithful

This past weekend at Living Proof Live in St. Louis, Beth shared a message about the image of God: Imago Dei. It was complex and layered and deep, and Saturday's sessions especially stomped all over my toes in the best possible ways. After the Saturday morning break, Beth shared a story about a woman named Teri (apologies to Teri if I'm misspelling her name) who was supposed to be at LPL in … [Read more...]
