Learning to Breathe Again


I love to make lists, set goals, and plan my days. You too? It feels so good when we finish a task and check it off. Done. But lately, God has been showing me that Real Life isn’t about to-do lists. It’s about breathing. It’s about embracing what Christ has already accomplished. It’s about freedom.

What Can I Invest to Change a Woman’s Life?


Thanks to our new outreach program, it may be as little as $20. We’ve set aside a limited number of seats at our 2014 From Survival to Revival events especially for women who need to hear solid Bible teaching and the good news that God loves them. For just $20 you can provide an outreach

It’s Never Too Late


I smiled when I read the poster in the window of the mall beauty salon: “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” It was surrounded by pictures of the latest hairstyles and colors. I guess that was supposed to be the message: It’s never too late to be a blonde if

Hangout with Sheila Walsh & Lisa Harper


Make plans now to join Women of Faith speakers Sheila Walsh and Lisa Harper Monday (7/21) at 4pm (Central) for a Google Hangout.

Resting on the Sabbath


So the week has been overwhelming? You want a sanitized house. Your family deserves nutritious meals. Your job is demanding (whether you are an office slave or a household servant!). You would like to take an art course, write a poem, create a garden, maybe take a trip. . . . “I can’t do it all!” you screamed

A Simple Little Total-Life Evaluation


I didn’t know till I was seated at a table across from the evening’s speaker that I had come, unwittingly, to a talk on fashion. I, who believe that God invented blue jeans so we wouldn’t have to think about such things, was about to get the scoop on what to wear, as though perhaps
