Encouragement for Women Investing in the Next Generation of Women

Determine to Live Intentionally Jan6

I don’t know if you’re like me or not, but at the beginning of the year I take time for reflection on the past year and what God has done in and through my life, including areas that need addressing.  Then I look at the coming year and how I’m going to incorporate change and […]

Mary, an ordinary woman used for extraordinary purposes Dec16

“God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.”  1 Corinthians 1:27 God chose a young woman of very humble means, a very ordinary young woman doing what engaged girls do . . . dreaming of being married, of the home […]

Elizabeth and Mary Dec9

As we approach this very special season of celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, I thought it would be appropriate to look at the relationship Mary had with her older relative, Elizabeth.  Soon after the angel’s appearance to Mary announcing she would bear the Savior of the world, the scripture says, “Now at this […]

Encouragement From Another Mentor Dec2

I would like to introduce to you a friend and fellow mentor.  Mary Jane Rogan has been married to Kerry, for 32 years.  Together they have mentored engaged couples.  Mary Jane has been a mentor to girls from Tweens to adulthood and loves “wasting her time and energy” on them.  The Rogans have three amazing […]

Called and Equipped Nov25

I’ve heard the saying, “God doesn’t call the equipped; He equips those who He calls.” And I believe that, but it’s a joint effort. We trust that God knows what He’s doing, that He knows us intimately and will lead every step of the way, and we begin to prayerfully learn and grow in that […]

His Grace Finds Us Nov18

I’m a fan of Matt Redman!  Matt and his wife Beth have experienced God’s grace and mercy, and are telling others about it!  They experienced God’s grace and mercy a few years ago in the midst of several miscarriages, and went on to write the incredible song “Blessed Be the Name of the Lord.”  When […]

Followup to the question . . . Who? Nov11

When I’m praying about the younger women God desires for me to mentor the next year, I look around and see what young women are already in my life.  I find them in many places:  through my church, daughters of friends, friends of my adult children, and places I work or interact in.  Sometimes it’s […]

Who Should I Mentor? Nov4

When you’re ready to invest your life in mentoring a younger woman, the first question you’ll ask is WHO? Who has God called you to invite into this very special relationship?  I believe the first thing we ought to do is pray and ask the Lord for a “divine appointment.”  After all, you’re going to […]

Does God want me to mentor a new group of women? Oct28

Since I begin my mentoring year in January, I ask this question to myself in October every year. When I had children still at home, summer was when I would pray about the ministry He wanted me to focus on during the coming school year.  If you have children still at home, you are mentoring.  You’re […]

Books We’re Reading: Identity in Christ Oct21

Many women struggle with who they are, often comparing themselves with other women and coming up short with who they think they need to be.  Women tend to find their worth in what they do, what they look like, or what others say about them; instead of what God says about them. One book I’ve […]
