Hospitality Hints is a monthly feature on our blog (this is the first one!) with some helpful hints for being hospitable in everyday life. Our hints may involve inviting people over, but not always! Most of the time, they will be about having a posture of hospitality—welcoming others into our lives.  Ways to Love New Moms We don't know about y'all, but our Facebook and Instagram feeds … [Read more...]

  “What are you talking about?” “Just this book we are reading.” “Really? What is the book? You know I’m always reading something! Maybe I’d like it.” “Uh…no, you probably wouldn’t.” After a pause, “It’s not the kind of book we normally read, but we’ve heard so many people talking about it.” After a moment of hesitation, my friends went on to tell me about Fifty Shades of Grey, … [Read more...]

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.

If you do not have a blog for your women’s ministry, you are either thinking “do not make me blog” or “I know it would connect our women and guide them if we had one.” Recently, I met with some key women’s ministry leaders of all ages, and we discussed the use of … [Read more...]

Recently I was in a meeting with leaders of all ages for a very energetic and exciting dialogue of women’s issues, leadership, and ministry with women.  Upcoming blog posts will center on information gleaned from those 3 days in New Orleans! Today I want to share one idea that we heard from Bethel Baptist Church Women's Ministry in Dothan, Alabama. Leader Donna Granberry shared an idea that has … [Read more...]
