20 Tips to Prevent Ruined Clothing

Sometimes you just can't avoid it: you get a run on your stockings on the way to that job interview. A button pops out of your shirt while rushing to church service. The airport manages to lose your luggage, leaving you with nothing to wear but the clothes you have on. Whether it's an emergency or the rigors of every day life, these simple things can help when you need a "quick-fix" to your fashion or clothing emergency.

A Woman for Jesus

The women who followed Jesus have always had a special place in my heart. When I think about women’s role in the body of Christ, they are the first ones who come to mind.

The Harvest is Plentiful, But the Workers are Few

The Harvest is Plentiful, But the Workers are Few

Let’s have some context first; Jesus had been walking through towns preaching and teaching, but there are only so many places he can be. He saw the crowds that gathered to hear him, yet he knew there were many, many more, and he felt compassionate towards them and even thought of them as “sheep without a shepherd”. I believe Jesus knew he’d die and rise again eventually, which meant he could no longer interact with people face to face. In Matthew 9:37 he was preparing his disciples for...

A Jealous Woman

A Jealous Woman

He could have filled his Word with awe-inspiring men and women who selflessly gave their lives to Him without a single struggle or doubt. But that’s definitely not what he did. Why? Because He knows us and knows we need to hear about Eve’s struggle with telling the truth in the garden, Sarah’s struggle with doubt about having a child, and Lot’s wife’s struggle with having enough faith to not turn around.

Two Sisters Who Changed Everything

Two Sisters Who Changed Everything

Sisters. I grew up with two sisters and while we love each other we have hugely different personalities. When we are together you can tell that we have our own way of keeping house, building relationships and going about our everyday lives.

Unshakable Kingdom: Understanding Gods kingdom

Unshakable Kingdom: Understanding Gods kingdom

Due to the recent election, I started thinking about what our year has been like. Our country has seen some intense sorrow and pain. We have suffered from malice and vengeance. Bother hurting brother in the name of something they believe in. When did believing in something mean a person needed to take someone’s life to get their point across? My heart was aching over my fellow Americans but then God brought this verse to my attention.

Learning to be Stronger: One Year Later

It was a little over a year ago that I was diagnosed with cancer, and only a little while after that that I announced becoming cancer free. I’ll admit, even though it was a short time that I had cancer, that time was the scariest and most upturned times in my life.

Is It Possible to

Is It Possible to "Disrespect Myself?"

Another way of describing “respecting ourselves” that may be even more accurate is “to think rightly about ourselves” or to “live in holiness in regard to how we think about and treat ourselves.” Disrespect is really another word for “sin” in a lot of ways. If I disrespect myself or someone else, my motives, thinking, attitudes, words and/or actions toward that person are hurtful and destructive.

Sabbath Turns to Surrender

Sabbath Turns to Surrender

My Sabbath has become a cherished moment in our busy week. At this point in my life, with so many different responsibilities, I pretty much only have Sunday afternoons and Mondays off. Tuesday through Friday is dedicated to Redemption Press, Saturdays are dedicated to women’s ministry tasks, presidential duties for the Northwest Christian Writers’ Association (NCWA),

Applying Psalm 23

Applying Psalm 23

Psalm 23 is one of those familiar Psalms that is frequently quoted in times of death or great sorrow. It’s so familiar to many of us that it’s easy to skip over the truth or miss what God is saying to us. There is so much application of Psalm 23 to everyday life, so let’s try to view Psalm 23 with an open heart to what God wants to teach us.

Amazed by Grace

Amazed by Grace

I was suddenly humbled by how much grace God has shown me. How could I ever doubt His love, when He sent His only Son to die in my place? How quickly I forget the magnitude of the grace He’s shown me.

Cultivating Love for God

Cultivating Love for God

We start by recognizing our need to increase our delight for God. In order for one thing to increase, another must decrease. Just like Eve in the garden, who saw the tree as a “delight to the eyes” (Gen. 3:6, ESV), so we often turn to temporary things for delight. Our flesh wants immediate gratification. We must confess this and recognize that only the Lord can satisfy with true delight.
