    Value

    Before I was born, the doctors told my parents that I would have down syndrome. My parents, being unwed, were definitely not ready for a baby. They weren’t financially ready. They weren’t emotionally ready. My mom wasn’t physically ready as she was only seventeen. Yet, they saw my value. They had everything against them, and they still saw the value of my life and refused to abort me. My ministry is clearly women and their wombs. God has placed a truth in my heart that I believe needs to be spread. The truth of trusting God with our wombs. I used to say this truth was only for Christian women.…

    I want to tell you a story.

    Years ago an Englishman had gone out to California, made his fortune in the gold fields and wanted to go back and live with his own people. So he sent his money back by check to England and then he came overland, through Santa Fe trail, Kansas City, into Missouri and then down the Mississippi and ended up in New Orleans where he was going to take a ship to New York and from there to England. As a tourist in New Orleans, he did what most tourists do, he went down to the slave market and there in the early 1850’s were slaves still being sold. As he went…

    When The Enemy Gets Loud

    We live in a time where the Enemy is really loud and seems to be triumphing in our land. He is spreading lies, we are listening and the result… Marriage is degraded. Motherhood is lame and despised. Mothers kill their babies every day. Life holds no value. Women are abandoning femininity. Men are abandoning masculinity. Nothing is sacred anymore. Much filth, sin, unrighteousness, and hate consume our country. Selfishness and a lack of love for the truth are visibly seen. Truth has indeed fallen in the streets. Christ, His Gospel and His Kingdom of holy living are laughed at in scorn. “And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth…

    Resist.

    The opposite of a wimpy woman is not a brash, pushy, loud, controlling, sassy, uppity, arrogant Amazon. The opposite of a wimpy woman is fourteen-year-old Marie Durant, a French Christian in the 17th century who was arrested for being a Protestant and told she could be released if she said one phrase: “I abjure.” Instead, wrote on the wall of her cell, “Resist,” and stayed there 38 years. -John Piper (below is an actual photo of the “REGISTER” [resist] etched in stone) The first time I read the above quote, I was amazed. I decided to do some more research on Marie and below is what I found. “Depite her…

    Choose Lives Over Things

    The other day our family made a visit back to our hometown that my husband and I had lived in the first few decades of our lives until moving away when my husband began pastoring. We took my dear mother with us on this drive around our old hometown, which has incidentally been her home all of her life. As we drove around and noticed such a change in scenery and among houses that we had lived in, it was just a little unsettling to me. We noticed how that buildings that would have carried some sentiment for us…(such as a hospital Brent and I were both born in) had…

    Are You Thankful For Your Womb?

    This may sound like a strange question. Perhaps it has never been asked of you, but really, have you ever thought about it? When God created woman, He placed within her a womb. A very special and unique feature that sets apart woman from man. A place where miracles happen. A place where a life is created by the hand of God himself kept and nourished until completion. It is quite amazing! I do not think we fully grasp the wonder of being able to conceive, nourish and bear a life. I want to and I hope you do too! In Psalms 139:13-16, David talks of the wonder of God…

    Be A Life Loving Woman

    Standing outside a Planned Parenthood clinic, I watched the faces that passed by. I saw the happy smiles, thumbs up and honks; and for those I’m grateful, but even among those there were evil and sad reactions. People yell cuss words, throw their hands up with disgust, and shake their heads no; but flipping you off is the most common negative response. I look down at the sign in my hands and it reads…”Your baby is not the enemy. Life is a gift.” I ask myself, why does my sign cause so much anger and hate? I look over at my brother’s sign that reads…”Please don’t hurt your baby, we’ll…

    Prepare For Motherhood

    Are daughters being taught to be mothers? Are they developing a love for babies? Are they learning how to be mothers by example? Are singles preparing to be mothers now? Are they seeing motherhood as their career for the Kingdom? Why do I ask such questions? Because I feel concerned. I walk the streets at events and I see 9-12 year olds dressed like 18-year-olds with makeup and toting around big iPhones in their hands. I rarely ever see a little girl carrying a baby doll. I remember one of the ways I met one of my childhood friends. We were at a public event and she saw my baby…

    Patience

    Patience. What is it? Why should I have it? Whenever I hear the word patience I always seem to get a picture of a young child being told “no” or “wait”, and the child then turns to stomp his foot in frustration and cross his arms with a horrid frown. You may laugh, cause I do. I don’t know why I seem to picture patience in my head like that. Perhaps, to a certain degree, I was that child growing up. It also seems that whenever the little phrase “patience is a virtue” is mentioned around adults, you hear a lot of groaning. It’s kinda funny, but why do we…

    Foundations Of Womanhood

    We live in an insane world. Yes, I think insane is the right word for it. Everything is “relative”. Men want to be women. Women want to be men. Marriage is just whatever you want it to be. Children are treated like rubbish. Homes are broken. People are confused. People are scared. People are hurting. Sin is a horrible disease and it is killing us. Where is the truth? Where is the rock to stand on and not be moved? The kind that is unchanging and never bends? A truth that is untouched by feelings or the lack thereof? We need such truths to be brought to light once more…
