Week 3 of Esther

I don't know about y'all, but I think "Esther" just keeps getting better each week. I am so wrapped up in the story now even though I've read it a bunch of times before and know how it all ends. There's something about the way Beth brings out certain details that has made it come alive for me. I swear I'm sitting on the edge of my seat to see what's going to happen next. The day that really got … [Read more...]

A New Blog for Kid People

OK, you don't know me but I add the videos, fix broken things, and host of other things for the AllAccess blog. So, when I went to the wonderful AllAccess people and asked to hijack a post, they graciously allowed me. Maybe it was because they realized I could make their pictures look funny or shut the whole thing down, but I am just going to think it's because they are THAT AWESOME and they want … [Read more...]

And here we go with “Esther”

I can't tell y'all how excited I was to start the first session of "Esther" on Wednesday night. I've been looking forward to this study since the first time I heard about it and judging from the introductory session, it is not going to disappoint. Also, I am totally going to start using the phrase, "I don't need the whole Megillah" because it makes me happy. The biggest thing that stood out to me … [Read more...]

On womanhood

Hey Y'all. Yesterday was one of those crazy, hectic days where I felt like I had a million things to accomplish and not nearly enough time to get them all done. Add to that the fact that it was the coldest, windiest day we've had so far and all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with some hot chocolate. But I dutifully ran all my errands because my family tends to need things like milk, eggs … [Read more...]

Beth Moore Esther Give-Away!

Hey ya'll. This has been quite the busy week here on LifeWay campus. We've got 500 women walking the halls and attending the National Leadership Forum. It has been a great week so far. Angela Thomas was keynote last night and girls, she is so good. If you ever get a chance to see her live or do one of her Bible studies, you gotta do it. I laughed so hard and got tears too. God's gifted her and … [Read more...]

Oh, I was supposed to bring home the bacon?

I have been so excited for Beth Moore's new study, "Esther: It's Tough Being A Woman" to come out because, let's be honest, it is tough to be a woman. The role of men in society has stayed the same for thousands of years, where the role of women continues to shift and change. We are a generation of women that has been raised to believe we should be able to do it all. But sometimes it's hard to do … [Read more...]
