Many, many, many years ago, I remember being at a Holy Convocation and a preacher and I approached the entrance to the conference hall at the same time. I stepped back because his hand was reaching to open the door and I was taught to let a gentleman open the door for me. He then snatched me back by my arm and told me, "You wait here. I am a pastor and you are only an evangelist. Always remember that I am higher and better than you." He walked in and I stood there as the door opened and closed in my face - stunned.
There is a clarion call from the throne to the heart of every woman preacher and that is the call to fall. Fall? Yes FALL. God hath issued a call for every woman preacher to fall on her face and pray. Find out more about your assignment inside!
There is a dangerous trend arising among Preaching Women. There are a few who now believe that the only way for them to be successful in preaching ministry is to emasculate themselves. Nothing could be further from the truth! There is no need whatsoever to forsake the lace and grace that mantles your life to be authoritative, powerful or a force to be reckoned with. Let us look at a few case studies in the Word of God...read more inside!
What pastors and other church leaders usually mean when they talk about stewardship is giving. But don't assume that's all there is to it. Stewardship is just as much about living as it is about giving. Good stewardship is about being faithful in using all your resources-not only your money and possessions but your time and talent as well. Stewardship is a duty, but it is also an act of worship (see 2 Corinthians 8:1-5 and Philippians 4:18).

For many of us, saying no is one of the biggest challenges we face. How do we learn to stop trying to do everything so we can do well the few things God has called us to do? Here are some strategies that have worked for me...Find out more inside!
What separates Martha from her sister Mary is that Martha did not order her time by her priorities. She may have sincerely thought that welcoming Jesus was most important, but her behavior did not reflect that. It's as if she had a choice of visiting with Jesus or vacuuming, and she chose the vacuum. It's not that Mary didn't help out with the chores. I believe she did-perhaps she did the dishes before Jesus arrived. But once Jesus set foot in their home, Mary dropped the busy work in favor of what really mattered-spending quality time with her Lord. Read more inside...
Benjamin Franklin had very definite opinions about debt, one of my favorites being, "Better to go to bed supperless, than wake up in debt." What a stark contrast to the attitude many have toward debt today. Instead of something to be avoided, we have embraced credit as a friend-an easy way to bypass shortages of funds. If debt was once such a disgrace, why do we now see debt as a strange sort of blessing rather than a curse? Find out why inside...
The Bible warns us about the dangers of looking to temporary diversions to satisfy deep-seated needs. Isaiah 55:2 asks bluntly, "Why spend money on what is not food? Why work for what does not satisfy you? Listen carefully to me. Then you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the richest food there is" (NIRV). In other words, why waste time and money gorging yourself on empty calories that will never fill you up? Why run yourself ragged chasing after frivolous things that fade away?

When you hear talk about "the good life," what comes to mind? A new car every two years? A spacious home in a well-to-do neighborhood? Fortunately for us, God's definition of the good life is much better than that. It's something we all can have-something we already have, whether we realize it or not.
