Women are game for nearly any adventure as long as there is a port-a-potty within 100 yards.
Stories are always better around a campfire.
Each of us has been gifted with a one-of-a-kind story that is authored by God and meant to be shared.
Our stories are all about God.
“You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, to be known and read by all. And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” 2 Cor. 3:2-3
Women are not defined by what they have gone through. Our identity is found in Christ alone and being redeemed makes all the difference.
“But you are a chosen race… a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
Food always tastes better cooked over fire and eaten with friends sisters.
Sue Martin makes good caramel corn.
You can’t judge a woman by her cover. There is more to her than you see and it is worth the time it takes to get to know her…the real her.
God calls all types of women. These women have amazing life-stories that God has ordained for his daughters to live in order to shine a spotlight, not on themselves, but on God’s goodness.
“…a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30
Horrific circumstances do not make you a horrific person. It makes the beauty and light of God’s grace shine that much more brightly against a dark and ugly background.
“to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3
God can stop a pattern of generational sinning. When he draws the line it is finished.
Older ladies are awesome, they love to have fun and offer years of godly wisdom. Listen to them!
When nature calls in the middle of the night, you go. Even in a thunderstorm, in the pouring rain, in pitch dark, while walking through mud. This encourages prayer.
“Always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you;” 1 Peter 3:15. Always… be… prepared.
Giving snapshots of how God worked in a situation or a phase of life is a great, short way to share with someone.
A fear of spiders is hereditary. I should have been more sympathetic to this mother/daughter freak-out, but I was too busy laughing.
Ignorance really is bliss when it comes to spiders. If we had known that a teenage tarantula was crawling around when we were sleeping… we would not have been sleeping.
Tina enjoys practicing her God-given dominion over spiders.
“He answered, ‘I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.’” Luke 19:40 We need to refuse to let a rock take our place in praising our God. God has planned out our path, sent us on it and walks with us. Praise him!
Telling our stories is very important and one of the easiest ways to share Christ with others. Write it out, practice it and share it.
