On capturing weak women

This morning I received a stern letter from a woman named Pam who was upset that I would dare to compare Scripture with the words of her favorite motivational speaker. “You will answer to God almighty for trying to pour evil into this world. I need say nothing God will bring you all to task […]

If it’s gossip, let it go.

We all know what gossip sounds like when we hear it, and as wise women of God we should know how to shut it down it with a simple, “did you bring these matters to her privately?” But I am concerned that certain social media tools, Facebook in particular, has numbed many of us to […]

How to Survive a Wimpy Women’s Ministry

This guest post by Kim Wine was published on Michelle Lesley’s excellent blog! Vanessa was excited to attend the weeknight women’s ministry event.

An open letter to my shacking-up friend

The following is a letter I wrote to a friend who confessed to me that she had allowed her fiance to move in with her and her 13-year-old daughter.

Just one bite

Our friend, Erin Benziger, recently captured a metaphor I’ve been thinking a lot about: It doesn’t take much for the irritation of sin to fester, grow and eclipse everything we think and do.  And so often it starts out without us even sensing that it is happening, until we “feel” that first itch.

What did Jesus command?

Jesus said that if we love Him, we will obey all that He commanded. (John 14:15) So what did Jesus command? He wasn’t talking about keeping the Old Testament Law, nor was He telling us we need to have a works-based salvation to get into Heaven, but as an act of obedience, love, and reverence […]
