I was just 20 years old, a college student, when I walked into Suzanne’s living room for the first women’s Bible study I would attend. In the company of women who spanned generations, Suzanne popped in the VHS tape, and we watched the first video segment from Beth Moore. A Woman’s Heart remains one of my favorite studies. Years later (almost 20 years later), I’m not surprised to find women of … [Read more...]

This year, more than maybe any other, I am aware of what the risen Christ means to me on a daily basis. As 2014 began, the Lord gave me the word “deeper” through the song  Oceans by Hillsong United. I wasn't sure what God would teach me this year, but in a nutshell…the grace of God and power of His resurrection. He has proven to be ALL I need in the most desperate situations. When my hands are … [Read more...]

Have you ever experienced spiritual warfare just at the moment (or shortly after) you took a step of faith to know Christ more deeply and serve Him more faithfully? The first time it happened to me I was totally unprepared and questioned the call God had on my life and that of my husband. Wasn’t serving God in full time ministry what He had asked of us? As we prayed and asked God to clarify what … [Read more...]

The term "leader" can often feel intimidating. Many of you don't feel qualified or ready to lead, but people keep asking you to do so, or you know it's what God is doing in your life. Leadership is scary! There's a lot of responsibility that comes with it, and people look to you for answers and help. Many women hesitate to attend our Women's Leadership Training events (like YOU Lead and the … [Read more...]

If you missed part 1, please read it first. As we fill up on Christ and walk in hope, we will influence those we lead to walk in faith. We see this same principle in Romans 15:13, Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe [in Him] so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. What we see here is that we fill up on this God of hope … [Read more...]
