Here at Revive Our Hearts, we think that anything to get you memorizing God’s Word is a good thing.
When you think or talk about singleness, do you use words like “celebrate,” “delicious freedom,” and “gift”?
The image of Wile E. Coyote obsessively scheming to catch the Roadrunner fits the description of the Wild Thing to a T.
I have an early morning date and every time I remind myself that “Tomorrow is the day!” excited tingles hint of the thrill it will bring.
"Blindness is one of those words like cancer, like divorce, like autism, like bankruptcy that we just don’t ever expect to hear, and we certainly don’t expect it to become our word . . ."
Popular mass media perpetually drips messages about gender, sex, and relationships into our minds. The trouble is, it often promotes false or counterfeit images of what womanhood is all about.
Five years ago, this cocky, over-eager college graduate arrived thinking I would help Revive Our Hearts minister to women. Ha! Turns out I was the one who was mentored and helped by this ministry.
Did you know that you can tell the difference between a Girl-Gone-Wild and a Girl-Gone-Wise by looking at her feet?
The pill was not a benign medical advance. It was introduced to advance a particular worldview and philosophy. And women, en masse, have swallowed it.
The Girl-Gone-Wild could be the girl next door, your best friend, or the lady sitting next to you at church . . . she may even be you!
Running frantically in the opposite direction, they attempted to push their extremely large bodies through the small six-by-six opening of the hog-wire fence bordering the property . . .

If we’re honest, prayer is a struggle at times.
"Recently I had my fourth kidney stone. Have you ever had one? The pain is unrelenting, consuming, and unresponsive to any 'over-the-counter' pain meds. It's a paralyzing, helpless, hopeless kind of feeling. My initial response to the pain was to focus inwardly and whimper to Jesus for relief."
". . . Her departure ushered in a season of loneliness that I hadn’t experienced since my college years. My stomach still tightens when I remember those early years at Kansas University."

"That I could be useful to God in my circle of influence was beyond my comprehension . . ."
It didn’t take long for an opportunity to share some of what I learned with a woman after a swim class.
