Go Forward

I have been privileged to lead Girls in Action in my church for more than 13 years. I have taught first-, second-, third-, and sixth-grade girls.

A Church on Mission

Our church held a missions conference this past October. We hosted several missionaries from our state and nation and around the world. Church members were able to interact with missionaries on a more personal level.

Unique Church, Expanding Vision

A vision gives direction and motivation. Without a vision, I can flounder around, aimlessly wandering from one interesting thing to another. Without a vision, a church can have worship services and programs, keeping members busy but unclear about the future.

My Vision = Their Vision?

How do you introduce a broader vision of missions into a church where many members truly don’t understand missions?

A Vision? A Vision!

My husband and I have been blessed with 5 grandchildren who range in age from 5 to 13. When each child was still in the womb, my vision was for him or her to be born with a healthy little body. Now that our grandchildren are getting older, my vision is changing.

Missions for Advent

I love Christmas, especially now that I’ve learned to pull back and focus more on the eternal gift of Christmas. Incorporating Advent practices into our family’s celebration was the turning point.

Truly Humble

T. W. Hunt’s discipleship class changed my life. He told the class about a growing awareness that he spent more time reading about God than he did reading God’s Word. Hunt explained that this conviction led him to read only the Bible for the next 5 years. Amazing!

Humbly Surrendering

What comes to mind when you think about surrender? Failure? Giving up? Raising the white flag? Do you think about submitting to the authority of another? The first step of humility is surrendering to Christ’s authority over you. I’ve found that it’s much easier said than done.

Accept No Glory

What is true humility? That’s a question I have struggled with most of my life. The more I sought humility, the more self-absorbed I became. That surely wasn’t humility.

Because of Who He Is, Let’s Make Time to Pray

Christmas. It’s the most joyful, but also most jam-packed, holiday of the year. This season, join with me in choosing to make time to pray. The Week of Prayer for International Missions Prayer Brochure is our resource for praying specifically, thoughtfully, and intentionally. How about it?
