Several months ago I came across Titus 2 Tuesday
blog posts. Inspired to do the same thing I set out to make a list of my own questions. Women who have encouraged me to be a radical follower of Jesus. Radical in the sense they love God with all the heart, mind and soul and their neighbor as themselves. They are ordinary women who love and serve an Extraordinary God. Women I want to be like so the Word of God will not be dishonored. Titus 2:5
I wanted a catchy title other than God's Women, so I asked a friend for help and she said
what is something that defines us? Maybe not where we're from but where we're going?
I always love the analogy of following Jesus so closely that you get the dust of your shepherd on you. Following in the footsteps of your Shepherd. So you could call us Dusty Women.
I love the fact that she said we need to be defined by where we're going not where we've been. As Paul says in Philippians 3:12-13...
forget what is behind.
Continuing my series of Dusty Women, my next friend to talk to is Daisy Wallace. I have known of Daisy for a long time as she has held several leadership positions in our women's ministry of our local district. Over the past few years, as I have become more involved I have had the privilege of getting to know her better. She is an awesome inspiration as to how to follow Jesus. Her love of her Savior, family and women of God is evident as it is very apparent in how she lives her life loving God with all her heart, mind and soul and her neighbor as herself. Daisy is a wife, mother and presently is our District Director of Great Commission Women. I will let her tell the rest of the story.
Daisy, would you describe yourself in 5-7 words?
Lover of Jesus; passionate about family, ministry, missions.
Would you briefly describe how and when you were rescued from the domain of darkness and transferred in the Kingdom of God? (Colossians 1:13)
When I was seven years old, my pastor gave an altar call and I was convicted to go forward to pray and ask Jesus in my heart. I knew I was a sinner even at that young age and I wanted forgiveness. My mother had been explaining to me and showing me in God’s Word how Jesus wants us to live our lives for him.
What do you enjoy about being a wife? Describe marriage in 5 words
My biggest joy about being married is the deep love of my husband towards me like that of Jesus, his faithfulness to our marriage and to God, his support of ministry I am involved in.
Deep and faithful eternal no-strings attached love
Daisy and her husband Bob have been married over 50 years.
What advice would you give a young woman who is struggling with who she is?
Get into God’s Word and his promises of who we are in him. Be willing to become a one-on-one mentor/teacher or get her connected with one.
What does God's Word mean to you?
God’s Word is my daily life blood, strength, peace, joy and “handbook” for life.
What does the local body of Christ mean to you?
Fellowship, accountability, teaching.
Coffee or Tea?
Chocolate or vanilla?
