Shady Ladies of Scripture

Winston Churchill once said, “Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” I am afraid that we can be guilty of this in our study of Scripture when we cherry pick the stories we study instead of looking at the whole of the God’s Word. When studying women in the Bible, […]

Submission: A Beautiful Picture of the Gospel

Last weekend I had the privilege of speaking at a women’s retreat. I spoke on my favorite topic: biblical womanhood. Of course, there are many facets to being a biblical woman, and today I want to address one of those. Submission. Depending on your background, just reading the word “submission” brings either comfort or fear. […]

Worshipping God as Women in His Image

We live on a conservation where the canopy of trees stretches back as far as I can see. Sitting on my back porch, I’m immersed in nature. I can hear grasshoppers chirping in unison while the breeze rustles through the leaves. Occasional birds chirp like melodic, timed bells. Wispy white clouds are painted across the […]

How I Changed My Definition of Beauty and Learned to Love My Wrinkles

How I Changed My Definition of Beauty and Learned to Love My Wrinkles

Standing in front of the mirror after my twins were born, the six months of sleepless nights were written in the crevices of my eyes and the sullen appearance of my skin. Motherhood was taking it’s toll on me — mentally, physically and now in the form of some brand new wrinkles on my face. […]

What does Lydia’s example show us about women in ministry?

Women in Paul’s Ministry Women are also part of the ministry God gave Paul. Paul has received a lot of negative attention for his teaching on women in ministry. He has been accused of being a sexist, male chauvinist pig who sought to belittle women in their desire to worship and serve God. But, was […]

Deborah: Lessons In Extending Influence and Leading in Appropriate Ways

Deborah, whose Hebrew name means “bee” or “wasp,” is a woman to be admired and praised for her commitment to the God of Israel and to His people. She made her appearance in history at a strategic time when her nation was paralyzed by fear and devoid of leadership. One should not be surprised that […]

You = Woman of Influence

Last fall I got to lead a study on biblical womanhood with a fabulous group of student wives. As we looked at everything the Bible has to say about being a woman, a definite pattern emerged. In the lives of all the individual women we read about, there was one theme running through the pages […]

What's So Bad About The Term "Helper"?

The burning question for women today is that of identity. Who am I? What is my worth? Am I really significant? Can I be used? Beginning in Genesis, we see that, as a woman, we have meaning and significance in the kingdom of God. Not only are we created for this purpose, but we were […]

Why I Run Like a Girl

Last month I ran, and finished, a full marathon. At 50 years of age, it was my first marathon. Over the past year, I ran several half-marathons, but the full marathon at 26.2 miles seemed daunting. I trained. I prepared. And, like a girl, I also planned my running outfit (I love running skirts!) with […]

The “Inconvenience” of Motherhood

The “Inconvenience” of Motherhood

When I was 27 years old my doctor told me that I would probably never have children.  At that time I was single, and I wondered if I would ever be married.  It was a difficult time in my life, but I knew God had a plan for me.  Three years later I met and […]
