Sometimes, as Christian women, we have a strong desire to serve and help people, we simply have no idea of where to get started or what to do. Today, I have a suggestion for you that can be done by any congregation, large or small, and anybody, regardless of their age. One work that our congregation does from which we have had tremendously positive feedback is sending out military boxes.  [ Read More ]

A Lesson about Priorities Priorities.  The inescapable lesson of Mary and Martha is priorities. It’s not just found in the “Martha, Martha” part of their story either.  From the moment we meet them in the little house in Bethany until we see Mary selflessly pouring the spikenard on Jesus feet and wiping them with her own hair, we are learning about priorities.  Mary got it right in Luke 10.

  Do you remember the old illustration about Limburger cheese? Limburger cheese is a stinky cheese. The smell comes from the same bacteria that’s responsible for body odor and smelly feet. One day a man was taking a nap. His mischievous young grandson decided to smear some Limburger cheese on his mustache while he was sleeping. When the man woke up, he yelled, “Ma! It smells in here!” He moved  [ Read More ]

Friendships are a gift of love from our Heavenly Father above. I truly cherish the friendships God has blessed me with!  I am thankful for every unique individual that God has brought into my life.

  We live in a very fast paced world. We can get an oil change in 15 minutes. We can get pizza delivered to our door in 30 minutes. We can get everything we want shipped the next day, even the kitchen sink. We can pump our gas from the “fastest pumps in town”. We like express lanes, speedy checkouts, and our food fast. The other day my husband and  [ Read More ]

Judges and Ruth Lesson 5: The Spoils of War (Judges 8)   This is one of those chapters that is incredibly bittersweet. It will leave us both cheering for Gideon and cringing at some of his poor choices. This is a powerful reminder that our Bible heroes are human too; the only perfect person God ever used to fulfill his purpose was Jesus.   Read Judges 8:1-3   These three  [ Read More ]

I am a professed people-watcher. If I had unlimited free time I could easily spend hours at a park, the mall, or even Wal-Mart, just watching the way people interact. I love to watch their body language, the way they dress, the way they speak to those around them, and even who individuals choose to surround themselves with. Unfortunately, however, sometimes my fascination with people-watching makes my heart hurt. For  [ Read More ]
