Can We Really Hear God Speak? by Heather Bryant Tyson

God speaks. All the time. You know, for much of my life – during trials and hardship – I’ve posed the question I think every believer has at one point in their life – “why is He so quiet? When am I going to hear from Him?” What we are looking for is an answer, […]

Idols, Altars, and Writer’s Block

Welcome my new friend Christie Lambert. She and I are staff writer’s together over at Christian Women Online Network. I so loved her writing that I asked if she would share with you today. You’ll love it too. So go get a cup of coffee, Diet Coke or a tall glass of water and enjoy […]

Got Wisdom? Need Some?

1 Corinthians 1:30-31 But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, “LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD.” I am super comforted in the fact that I can have all the wisdom I need for […]

Prayer of Complete Praise and Surrender…

A sweet friend and mentor sent this to me through email today. I thank God for the godly women He has provided for my spiritual growth. Jan is one of two friends responsible for my having discovered the message of God’s grace through Jesus and my identity in Christ. Salvation changed me forever but it was […]

Day 20: Wearing the Mask of the Walking Dead: Shame

Shame is an ugly mask. It can turn a beautiful, strong woman into a frail, sad, fearful, head hanging one. I once read that shame goes beyond feeling guilty for WHAT you’ve done because it tears into your soul and condemns WHO you are. That’s why it last so long, goes so deep and is […]

31 Days Taking Off Masks: Day 14 “I’m Fine” Mask

“I’m fine”. I say this a lot even when it’s not true. I pretend everything is fine even when it really isn’t. This mask is worn by most every woman I know. We don’t want to burden others. Besides do they really want to know when they ask, “How are you?” Do I really mean it […]

Who Does Your Tongue Serve? by Darlene Minshew

Darlene Minshew is back today with a word from the Word. Upon reading this I have to admit I felt a sting. Not of judgement from the Holy Spirit but it was one of those nudges that said, ” You know what Julie we’ve got some work to do.” And I’m thankful Christ even wants to […]

Does The Spirit Convict Believers of Sin or Not?

The Holy Spirit convicts me of who I am in Christ. Contrary to popular belief He does not convict me of sin making me feel guilty. Romans 8:1 Therefore there is now no condemnation in Christ Jesus. He is like a breeze in the trees blowing through my soul or  a loud drumroll when I […]

Older, Old, New- Short Study of Covenant

Unfortunately we are the end of our study about the Old and New Covenants with Dee Gredler. I believe this one is the best because the New Covenant is the BEST. I can’t wait for you to dive in. Dee and I pray God through His Holy Spirit gives you a fresh new perspective about His great […]

You’ve Been Freed, Act Like It Now!

    Galatians 5 is a letter Paul wrote to the Jewish Christians, many of which didn’t understand living under grace instead of by the law. He wrote this letter to explain to them that they were giving up the freedom that comes with being a believer by putting all these rules upon themselves. I’m […]
