there's always more room in God's Kingdom, and he's given us the opportunity to invite as many as we can to the party.  #womanatthewell #biblestory #womenofthebible

Nehemiah has always excited me because it reminds me that strategy, perseverance, and leadership are not separate from following the Lord, but deepen as we grow with him.  But now I’m wondering if this book is so much more than that.
Just like Nehemiah, your “where” isn’t by accident. You don’t have the job, family, or friends you have by mere coincidence. You are where you are to help others and glorify God. #nehemiah #biblestudy #influence

While you might not be a dignitary of a government, a best-selling author, or the leader of a large non-profit, you can still love others. I can love others right where I’m at. We all can’t be like Bob Goff, but we can all practice loving those around us.  #everybodyalways #bookreview
For years, I gained knowledge about God and the Bible and the church, but I didn’t learn about my emotions or my emotional health. The Emotionally Healthy Church really helped me to understand more about who I am and who God is and, honestly, I haven’t been the same since I read and applied those principles to my life.  #emotionallyhealthychurch #bookreview
I think the hardest part of the shame-game that’s going on in the world today is identifying shame. It seems kind of like a no-brainer, but for me, it’s not. I have difficulty identifying the voice of shame because I’ve become so accustomed to it over the years. But, in the first chapter of Unashamed, as Christine shares how shame entered into her life, she gives some examples of the voice of shame.  #unashamed #bookreview

Is there any area that you fear man more than God? Or have gone against what you know to be right all to please someone else?
I don't know the character or faith of Zipporah but I do know this: she was able to clearly identify what was important to God and she acted upon it when it mattered the most! I hope and pray that I am able to do the same.
Tabitha was famous for doing good works and acts of charity. People saw her faith in God by how she loved and served others. What are you known for?
