Two Questions to Ask When a Girl Says Something Unwise

We’ve all been there. You’re in a conversation with a girl and she says something that is unwise/off/unbiblical. You know you need to say something, but you don’t want to just give advice, seem judgmental, or ignore it. Here are two great questions to get them thinking and allow you to transition to share some […]

Off the beaten path in Scotland in the shadow of Ben Nevis lies the Commando Memorial that honors World War II Commando veterans and their families. The monument was erected in 1952, and the small plaque on the front proclaims: “In memory of the officers and men of the commandos who died in the Second […]

Alone at the Leadership Summit

I have heard leadership likened to mountain climbing: Depending on the height of the mountain, the closer to the summit one climbs, the harder it gets. The air is thinner, the winds blow stronger, and the burdens rest on your shoulders more heavily as fewer people have climbed to the upper peaks. Some who have […]

Why Simply Reading Devotionals Will Not Achieve the Goal of Discipleship

The goal of discipleship is 2 Timothy 2:2 – “…and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” We are taught to teach people who will teach people. (Read that 3 more times and put in calligraphy somewhere in your […]

Dying to the Idol of Ease

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. (Col 3:23-24) It was finally the weekend after a busy week and an overall busy month. Early on Saturday was a pro-life event that I was debating whether or not to attend. In my heart, I […]

“How did Mother Teresa go about loving her neighbors, and why did she love them so richly?”

By on March 24, 2016 in Ministry with 1 Comment

When I was invited to be the speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C., in 2012, I immediately thought of Mother Teresa, whose speech there in 1994 was the only one many people seemed to remember. It wasn’t until I had to write my own speech that I watched hers online. Mother Teresa […]

Is Door-To-Door Evangelism Worth It?

The first time I ever went door-to-door to share the gospel with people, I was quite nervous and filled with doubt that this type of witnessing would even work. As a matter of fact, the only reason I was going out was because it was a class requirement. Some of you may wonder if people […]

Making a Difference in Your Jerusalem

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” (Eph 2:10) It was the beginning of the summer when I first heard of the horrendous videos that were coming out about the Planned Parenthood organization. For months, I would see them […]

Life as a Pastor's Wife: Why Did I Sign Up for This?

Do you ever wake up in ministry to ask yourself…Why? Why did I sign up for this? Why do people isolate me? Why do people not trust my husband? If we were all honest with ourselves, we would say that at some point or another, we have asked the “why” questions in ministry. Typically, we […]

How to Avoid Ministry Burnout

By the age of twenty, I was a young pastor’s wife thrown headfirst into the deep end of ministry. Although I knew what ministry entailed, I thought the difficult times wouldn’t come until at least ten years down the road. That was definitely not the case. In that first year of ministry, I had seen […]
