True Woman: A Surprising Listen
I haven't been able to listen to anything else since. This CD so ministers to my heart that I play it from early in the morning until it's time for bed.
True Woman: I'm a Better Leader
At one particularly difficult time during our marriage, my husband threw up his hands in exasperation and said, “I tell you what we’re going to do! From now on you do what you want to do and I’ll do what I want to do. I’m not going to keep going back and forth with you about who’s going to lead this family!”
True Woman: Trust and Obey
That is the year I came to believe at the core of my being that every event in our lives is being orchestrated by a wise, loving, and good God who really can be trusted.
True Woman: The Church and the Single Mom Family
You know her. You sat by her at the school program. She waited on your table at the restaurant last night. She rang up your supplies for your foreign mission trip. Life is so busy–you didn’t hear the hurt behind the words as she called out, “have a good night,” and it never occurred to you that she is part of a mission field right in your own back yard.
True Woman: What's a Single Mom to Do?
As a single mom of two little boys, I remember thinking more than once as I collapsed into bed, “Did I even brush my teeth today?” I don’t recall a more physically exhausting, worry-filled, second-guessing, constant-struggle time in my life than those years I spent as a single mom.
True Woman: Hilarious Giving, Three Lists, and An Opportunity
I asked God to make me one crazy generous giver, and began to compile my third list: a list of people I’ve thought of giving to . . . wanted to give to . . . but never have. Then, I proceeded to have one of the most fun days ever!
True Woman: A Tour of My Home
I try to keep my heart fixed on Christ, and one practical way I do that is by using visual reminders. In fact, I’d love to take you on a tour of my home. In lieu of a YouTube video, please join me on a “blog post tour” and use your imagination as you “drop by” for a visit!
True Woman: Starting the Day Off Right
Daily devotions was not something my parents forced on us, but the influence of my dad’s example and training in this area was profound. Although he has been with the Lord since 1979, the image of a dad on his knees before the Lord is indelibly etched on my mind and in my heart.
True Woman: What and What Not to Wear
In 1 Timothy 2:9, the Lord provides three guidelines that help Christian women figure out what and what not to wear. Asking yourself these three questions will help you figure out how to dress.
True Woman: Gentle Jesus, Meek and . . . Modest
It’s just that the transforming power that changes a show-off into a servant doesn’t come from rules about shirts or skirts. It comes from remembering the gospel and seeking to show Him off instead.
