Made To Be Brave

Made To Be Brave

Recently, Jesus called me through a few trials and lessons that needed to be learned. During this time, I was able to go deep to the root of the situation in this time of closeness to Him. The Lord exposed and cleansed me of so many things and I am so thankful that He did! I was able to recognize the self-pity and loneliness I was feeling and was finally able to call it what it was – sin. But..

“Why is modesty constantly directed towards women?” “What about men being modest too?”

I’m Just Not Attracted to Him…

{Guest Post by Kristen Clark}

“I am just not attracted to him…” Have you ever said those words about a guy before?

Do you know a guy who is really awesome in every way (he loves the Lord, is godly, kind, desires to grow, etc.), but you just aren’t attracted to his outward appearance? I have been there and know exactly what that feels like.

Before I got married, God taught me some hard truths..

How to Avoid Cat Fights with MOM!

Moms. They can be totally awesome, totally awkward and totally hard to get along with! Now, my mom and I can be the best, best of friends.

A Whole New Perspective on the Proverbs 31 Woman

Proverbs 31…We know it like the back of our hand. We’ve read, studied and dissected this lone chapter of the Bible set apart specifically for women. I personally grew up listening to my mom read this chapter over and over and listened to her teach it to women. I’ve done countless studies on the “Proverbs 31 Woman” and tried earnestly to meet the expectations set for women in this..

A Young Lady’s Testimony

This is a testimony from a young lady on our blog. In regard to my article called “Where are all the godly men at?” (http://wp.me/P3yl1s-8S) she wrote this and gave me permission to post it.

What is a Woman?

What is a woman?
What is a woman if she is not kind?
What is a woman if she has not grace?
What is a woman if she is not pure and gentle?

A 13 year old girl with a sweet demeanor and a spirit that is one with the..

The Hidden Person of the Heart

“Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”

You are beautiful just the way you are. I am not speaking of outward beauty but when you were born God gave you a beautiful spirit. You..

Being a Lady-According to Elisabeth Elliot

“To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle, she is gracious, she is godly and she is giving. You and I have the gift of femininity… the more womanly we are, the more manly men will be and the more God is glorified. Be women, be only women, be real women in obedience to God.”

― Elisabeth Elliot
