What Are You Carrying?

~ Written by Viki Rife Do you ever feel so encumbered you can’t get anything done? Does it seem like intense spiritual battles are making it impossible to accomplish what you believe God has called you to do? Does the spiritual climate around you feel overwhelming?  When I start feeling that way, I turn to […]

Watching the Clock

~ Written by Cassie Harris  “For every day of the year he learned a new Bible verse.” Everyone smiled as friends reminisced about Roy Snyder’s legacy in his heart for missions and his even bigger heart for Africa. At 93, it was obvious at his celebration of life that he had learned the true definition […]

Is God Worth The Risk? 

~ Written by Gladys Deloe  Bite your tongue! Are you serious? Shouldn’t the question be, “Is life without God worth the risk? That premise is almost as incredulous as a screen-saver I saw which said, “Without risk it is impossible to please God.” Really?   “Risk” is defined as taking a gamble! It’s...

Emergency Preparedness

~ Written by Viki Rife When I buy a new phone, the first thing I do is download a tornado app. It tells me when a tornado might be coming, and also gives me detailed instructions for what to do before, during, and after the storm hits. What kind of app do we have to […]

A burning question for believers

About fifteen of us sat together for almost three hours as we wrestled with the question: how do we make a radical difference in the spiritual growth of the next generation? The group included children’s workers, youth leaders and pastors, and senior pastors from various churches. We all agreed that we need to invest in the young people God...

God sees

Recently I’ve spent a lot of time in the book of Ruth. One thing that strikes me is how obvious it is that God saw and rewarded her daily choices to do the right thing—often the hard thing. She went far beyond in her commitment to her mother-in-law, not only vowing to stick with her until death, but following through by providing for her with...

What about balance?

It's a wonderful, exciting time of year--this season we call Christmas. It's also exhausting. We find ourselves falling wearily into bed at the end of a day of adding party planning and shopping to our already full lives; then, just as we're falling asleep, we remember yet another thing we really need to do this season. "How much am I expected to...

The Faith of a Child

It’s been a hard week as we’ve watched a very dear couple welcome a baby into their family only to lose her five days later. One of many concerns was how our four-and-a-half-year-old grandson would handle the news of his little cousin’s death. He has prayed fervently for Olivia since her health concerns first surfaced months before she...

Who Are You Looking At?

Praying for extended periods of time used to frighten me. I was nervous about the silence, about what to say, about getting bored. I was especially nervous to pray out loud with others for extended periods. Now however, joining together in prayer with others, especially women who are in ministry with me, is a highlight […]

Theological Thoughts

If I am being completely honest, my thoughts in the past year have revolved around my turning 30. Those of you older than me, think my life is just starting, those of you who are younger, agree with me and think I’m old! Or not! The truth is, I simply feel like I am beginning […]

From Wheaton College!

Hi all! What a marathon I have had! Thursday of last week I trekked from Syracuse, Indiana to Washington D.C. I was part of adult conference there and able to celebrate Women of Grace’s 75th anniversary with them as well as had the opportunity to see Janet Minnix honored for her 17 years of service […]

Abundant Blessings!

I have felt so blessed this last week. I have had many opportunities to be reminded of my heart and the passion which God has placed in me. Today, at church, the pastor spoke on the fight to men specifically and last week about the difficulties we face as women. I love when the Church has the chance […]
