Encouragement for Women Investing in the Next Generation of Women

You can be a catalyst Feb4

There are so many hurting people who desperately need to know they are deeply loved by the God who created them!  During the first week of January, I attended the Passion 2013 conference in Atlanta, GA; a gathering of 60,000 college students for the purpose of “uniting students in worship and prayer for spiritual awakening […]

Abiding in Christ Jan28

In John 15, Jesus talks about the importance of each of us abiding in Him, the Vine.   Abide in me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.  I am the vine; you are the branches.  Whoever abides in […]

41 years . . . Thanks to God and others Jan21

Bill and I are celebrating 41 years of marriage today!  Yes, we were just babes when we got married!  If you had known us when we got married at 20 and 19, you’d have probably thought, “They’ll never make it.”  I came from parents who did not know the Lord; my dad deserted our family […]

A call to be intentional with the next generation Jan14

This ministry is founded upon Titus 2:3-5, Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine.

What a mentor is not Nov26

We’ve talked a lot about what a mentor is . . . now I want to take some time to talk about what a mentor is not.  Sometimes it is easy for these lines to be crossed, so being aware of this will help you not cross over. • You’re NOT going to be their […]

Your role as a mentor Nov19
