Avoiding Oil Slicks

~ Written by Sharon MacMillan The toxicity of our modern western culture has spilled over into the Church like an out-of-control oil slick, seeping through the nooks and crannies of our women’s ministries. The devastation has spurred Chris Adams, women’s specialist for Christian women leaders, to list trends in women’s ministries. The list...

Unable to Trust

~ Written by Cassie Harris  It’s commonly used as a warm and fuzzy sentiment about God’s faithfulness — “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding…” Everyone smiles at that verse. Upon hearing it, most people at least start a pensive, slow affirmative nod. We like that verse....

Late Blessings

~ Written by Cassie Harris When the 15th of every month comes around, I’m reminded why the government calls me ‘middle class.’ I start weighing the pros and cons of using my spending money on coffee, rather than bread. It’s during these last days where I no longer argue when someone offers to treat me […]

Life in the Right Lane

~ Written by Cathy Simms My husband and I recently took a road trip to visit our son who lives with his wife two hours away. To get there, we had to travel on some major highways. I was busy reading for awhile, but soon realized every time I looked up, we were in the […]

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 […]
