3 Reasons You Should Recognize the Gifts of Others

When I was 23, I was working a part time job, when one day on my break a fire inside my heart was kindled. I wanted to encourage my friends and fellow church ladies. I was well aware that each of us were walking different roads, and many of the women on my text list…

Do You Need Other Christian Women?

Do You Need Other Christian Women?

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. (Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV) I’ve been thinking a lot about these verses. We often use them…

Are You Open Enough?

Most of us have probably participated in a women’s bible study at some point in our lives. I’m a pretty big fan of them. I always find it interesting to think about the difference in tone between the first and last night of the study. Usually, the group has more to talk about since they’ve…

Are You Needy Enough?

I attended a wedding recently where I had a chance to catch up with some dear friends. As one of them was headed out the door, she hugged me goodbye and said to my husband, “Take care of her. She’s needy.” She claimed she was joking but I think she just knows me well. Pray…
