I searched for a visual picture that would help me understand. If everything flows from the presence of God, how could I live in God's presence? A speaker at a women's conference supplied the illustration . . .
As you know, politics is difficult, and often a “dirty” business. We have to remember that in November we’re choosing the better of two candidates, not the better of two evils. (Why do we not phrase it, “choosing the greater good”?) Someone will indeed get elected, and God wants us to choose wisely.
He was from a tiny country in East Africa—an immigrant, divorced long ago, with children he dearly loved. My friend Lynette and I slipped into Kintura's taxi cab at our hotel after the final session of the True Woman conference.
It didn’t take long for an opportunity to share some of what I learned with a woman after a swim class. Leslie’s mom was a Feminist, and Leslie had obviously absorbed much of the Feminist philosophy into her life.

A real turning point during the Christmas season came for me when I changed the word "holiday" into "holy-day."

Regardless of when you decide to shop for Christmas, don't go out unless you're armed with at least three things.
While I enjoyed being a young Titus 2 woman (Titus 2:1–5), I entered into the "older woman" role reluctantly. After a while, however, I realized that women were going to watch my life whether I liked it or not, but I could be the Titus 2 woman God designed me to be if I placed my confidence firmly in the Lord.
When I am not proactive about my relationship with God, I “drift” into my own way. A canoe that is not tethered to a pier drifts out into deep waters where it can be capsized by high waves.
