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 model 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 caught up with Amanda earlier this summer drinking lattes' with great conversation. She returned last December from a two year commitment with SIM and I wanted to hear all about it. We didn't get around to my Dusty Women questions because I wanted to hear her back story of her faith walk and how she ended up in Kenya. One question I did ask which she didn't hesitate in answering. "What would you say to your 16 year old self? to which she replied... "You're not getting married tomorrow, so boys don't matter."
What's this, no Sanctity of Human Life posts? as I perused past January blog postsNot a one. They have to be somewhere, because I've been pro-life since my senior year in high school when my English teacher gave me an unfair grade on my term paper because she disagreed with my findings on abortion. None to be found, probably in a different category, but you deserve something fresh!! 🙂
I'm pro-life!! How's that!!Roe v. Wade is 41 years old and has seen better days as this Christianity Today article explains. It is lengthy, but well worth the time as we stand up to take the challenge of making murder of the unborn illegal. Why we need to stop saying 'As Long as It's Healthy'. How about saying instead 'as long as he or she gets here?' Ok, so I found a post that originally was written with the names changed. A shining example of sanctity of human life. In honor of my sister-in-law Judy and my nephew Cody.
These pictures are priceless. Images of followers of Jesus I am honored to know. Fall Refocus is our Great Commission Women's fall retreat that I usually attend, but it fell on the weekend of our week long missions conference...and Lauren and Rob's birthday. This one needs no explanation!! The next two were taken at our Second Saturday meetings, held...well every second Saturday of the month. Katie...love her...she's having 3 cups of coffee!! Becky, fearless leader of Great Commission Women. I'm sure she would appreciate our continued prayers as she recovers from a freak accident. She is God's woman for the job of leading the women of Lafayette Alliance. And finally, a copy of the workbook we are using in our women's Bible studies, held during Sunday School, Wednesday morning and Thursday night. Studying Sweeter than Chocolate--Psalm 119. One of our attendees is writing the hebrew alphabet, part of the study.
