    Are Women Really To Remain Silent?

    We live in a radical feminist-influenced culture that has tainted Christians by their lies because the church has let them in. One reason why the idea of women not holding elder status, teaching, preaching, but rather is commanded to be in silence is so hated is because we have let culture shape our views instead of scripture. Let us hold to the authority of scripture as the inspired word of God instead of our emotional preference. All that God has created with a specific purpose is good. His ways are perfect and bless us as women.  Disclaimer: I do not intend for this to be an exhaustive study on the topic.…

    Perhaps homemaking is not an insignificant occupation after all.

    Home. The place where families dwell. A place of rest. A place of work. A place that’s safe. A place of growth and learning. A place where minds are shaped and disciplined. A place of sharing. A place of serving. A place where creativity can run wild. A place where God can be worshiped. A place of discipleship. A place of repenting of sin and trying again. A place of ministry. A place of hospitality. A place of loving your people that God gave to you. This is what home is meant to be.  But, when the people are gone from the home, we miss getting to practice what a home…

    Are You Willing to Be Nameless?

    This story that I’m about to share is allegory excerpt from a book called, “Sir Knight of the Splendid Way”. It is an allegory story of the Christian life and of the different battles Christians fight with along the way toward home. May this little bit encourage your heart as it did mine. “Hear the wonder of the story of Sir Nameless. When he was a young knight he was eager-hearted as the youth should be, fired with the hope of youth and fortified by the courage of faith. He dreamed of high adventure, yet not for his own glory, but for the King’s. What men dared, he could dare,…

    Self Confidence = Virture & Immodesty?

    There is a lie that has been floating around for a long, long time in the culture and also in the church and I would like to make a stab at it with the Sword of Truth. In our long quest to help women with being confident in their own skin and bodies, we have picked up this lie of what being confident actually looks like. This lie is that when one finally achieves confidence in their body, they will have the freedom to dress however they wish. You and I have all seen the fashion shows that “help” women to dress confident and it always results in showing off…

    Simple Modesty

    Yes, I know this is a huge topic that most tend to just leave alone, but since I find it in scripture and I wholly want to please my Lord and Savior, I must be concerned with it. First, I would like to point out that there is far left and far right on this issue. There are so many voices and opinions and lines and degrees of what people deem modest that it can get real confusing real fast. Since it seems confusing most just throw up their hands and say forget it, I’ll just dress in what I feel is best. But that also doesn’t work because we…

    Women Are Insecure Of Their Own Femininity

    I recently heard someone make this comment and it struck me. Could this really be the case? What is the definition of insecure? 1. not confident or assured; uncertain and anxious. 2. not firm or set; unsafe. So are women really uncertain and not firm or set in femininity? Yes, I believe so and we can see it in our culture around us. Women have been told that their femininity is not good enough. We are told that to have worth and value and live significant lives, we must take on masculinity. These ideas have been pushed in our culture for a while now. Women are feeling uncertain as women.…

    Can We Move On To Higher Things Now?

    Fashion. Makeup. Self-image. Perfect weight. Flawless skin. These are subjects that concern and consume unbelieving women, but also, concern and consume us believing women as well. I’m asking, should this be so? I’ve grown weary with these subjects. Just plain tired of them. I feel they are robbing us of eternal mindsets and visions. Just think about it with me for a minute. Here we are in a world of darkness, souls are dying all around us, babies are being murdered every day, mothers have lost their mother-hearts, fathers are abandoning their posts, men and women are throwing off masculinity and femininity, families are broken down, tons of children are…

    5 Reasons Why I’m Not A Feminist

    We are now in what people are calling the 3rd wave of feminism and when I listen to the ideology behind this 3rd wave, I just can not align myself with its core beliefs. I will list my reasons below. 1. I believe the core of feminism is against God’s biblical design It is very clear in Scripture that men and women were both created equally in the image of God and both have the same value and worth. But we were created distinct from each other with differing roles. One role is not above the other. Both roles are needed for a healthy family life to exist. We find…

    A Story Of Bold Women

    Thinking of bold and courageous women…here is a true story. In the latter days of the Holocaust, there was a group of Jewish men that were targeted by Hitler for their extermination. The Gestapo called it the “Final Roundup”. Initially, both Hitler and another Nazi party leader had worried about the reaction of the German spouses if they were to be forcibly removed from the Jewish spouse. So, instead, they resorted to social pressure to force a divorce, so that the Jewish spouse could then easily be sent to the death camps. Consequently, those men whose wives gave in and divorced them WERE killed! This plan didn’t totally succeed though…

    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…
