What do you think of this AD?

I am working with a wonderful graphic design artist (who I highly recommend!) on an advertisement for the magazine to be published at a large women’s conference this fall. What do you think of this … (the quality is a lot better as a .pdf file but I can’t load that type of file onto my website) …

NEW Retreat title & desciption

OK, guys, no holds-barred … (well, if you have a LOT of harsh criticism, maybe you can take it offline and just email me directly? 🙂 ) … I’d REALLY love to hear what you REALLY think of these titles & descriptions for my “all new” women’s retreat. (Same content because the gospel is the gospel, right? But must shorter …

Would YOU go to this retreat?

So I’ve been working on a brand-new retreat and the event host has been incredibly patient as I’ve tried to figure out what in the world I’m trying to pull together. (Thanks again, Liz!) Today I emailed her some (very rough) brainstorming / off the top of my head thoughts in response to some of her questions … and I’d …

NOT “Lord, help me to trust in You” …

Andree Seu has done it yet again … – encouraged – confronted – challenged – edified all for God’s glory! Listen to just a tiny excerpt from one of her recent articles: “A friend objected to my piety.

To receive is NOT to accept …

I started a new book this morning … A.W. Tozer’s Faith Beyond Reason. Wow! You know it’s a good book when even in the first few chapters you’re reading words you don’t know and learning things (or remembering things) that are IMPORTANT. Like this … John 1:11-13 says this: He came to that which was his own, but his own …

Measured over YEARS …

I remember my friend (and co-author of my book Peacemaking Women), Judy Dabler, once told me that people don’t need fixing, they need growing and that growth is measured in terms of years, not projects. Isn’t that a gracious view of life? Of people? Then earlier this week, I received an email from a friend who wrote this: “It reminds …

“Become who you already are…”

The other day, a friend of mine challenged me to become who I already am. That instead of wallowing around in the mud of my despair and unbelief, I should rise up! And learn to be the woman that I already am–to be the “real me.” (In Christ, I AM a new creation. By God’s grace, I AM a godly …
