Pouring God’s Grace on Others


We human beings have an overwhelming tendency to jump to conclusions, to expect the worst in order to avoid disappointment, and to turn our backs on people who hurt us. Yet the Bible says, “Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance” (1 Corinthians 13:7 NLT). The extent

Simple Love


Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. —1 John 4 :7 niv With all the talk about leadership and success and careers, we can forget the basics of life. It’s not climbing the corporate ladder. It’s not finagling a

Knowing the Love of God


I am 39 years old and I have been in church since I was a baby. (In fact, the first few years of my life were spent living in family housing at Southeastern Seminary where my dad was getting his Masters in Divinity to become a pastor.)  I never really went “wild” but always felt

3 JOHN: Truthful and Tender


In this third short letter by John, he again talks about the value of truth and love.  One without the other is incomplete.  If we internalize this standard of holding onto what is absolute and gospel truth, while maintaining God’s love for all, we’ll be all we were created to be, and our influence on

Adding God to Your Everyday Routine


I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with His praise.  —Psalm 34:1 MSG We know all about everyday things.  We have everyday clothes – our “grungies” we wear when we clean house, join the kids in the sandbox, and mow the lawn.  We have everyday shoes – well worn, and comfy.  We

Don’t Just Stand There . . . Pray Something!


I learned this practical prayer principle from Ron Dunn’s book with that title. Here at Women of Faith we are not just planning and programming, we are PRAYING for God to move in great and unprecedented ways at the From Survival to Revival events that will take place in 20 cities this year. Anytime there

Women of Faith Commissioning


At last month’s Unwrap the Bible event in Houston, Beth Moore wrapped up the weekend with a “commissioning.” She gathered major points from all the speakers’ messages and had the women in the audience speak them over each other. We loved it and thought you would, too. Special thanks to our friends at Living Proof

2 JOHN: Focus on the Truth


John wrote this letter to a woman of faith who was perhaps being indiscriminate in who she invited into her home to teach. It’s all about focusing on the truth.  What a great reminder!  God has given us His Word, and we can have confidence in what He says.  Everything must be tested by this

Wordless Groans


In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. —Romans 8:26 The winter months are my long, cold, dark days.  This is when I tend to be pulled to the dark corners of

Becoming a Woman of Faith


I was born into a nonreligious family; the name of Jesus was never mentioned in my home, neither was his Word. I didn’t know anything about Him and I didn’t attempt to. It wasn’t until moving away from Florida—away from drinking and bad influences, away from the devil’s tricks—that I was brought to church. Long
