  Forgiveness Eleven letters which hold such great power. Power to unlock and free oneself from a life of being imprisoned to anger, offense, and bitterness. When I think of the word “forgiveness” there are many examples from the Bible that come to my mind. Examples of the power of God moving in the lives of ordinary people. Jesus models forgiveness for us as He cries out “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing” as he [...]

Can’t You Be a Better Person?

By |April 20th, 2017|Categories: equipHER, Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |1 Comment

Driving down the road one day, Michael and I were discussing a parenting issue involving our son, Ben. Every few minutes, Emily, who was 10 years old at the time, kept piping up with her opinion on the situation. We finally said, “Emily this really isn’t any of your business.” She sighed, saying, “Fine, if you don’t want me to help you make Ben a better person! Whatever.” Isn’t that what we think we’re doing sometimes, helping to make someone [...]

He Gets It

Do you ever feel like no one understands what you are going through?  I do!  Like your friends or even your family just don’t get it?  Me, again! The other morning heading to work I was feeling a little weary, a little hurt, a little angry a little a lot of things, I guess.  I was thinking about someone who I am frustrated with.  I guess I felt let down by this individual and I felt justified in my feelings. [...]

Embraced by Grace

By |April 6th, 2017|Categories: equipHER, Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

I haven’t always gone to church. I have found church to be both a place that is inviting, beautiful and healing (like it is today) and I have also found it to be a place of  a lot of rules and judgment. My first experience that I can remember with church was in 6th grade. My mom and I moved from Bellingham to Redmond. My first day at school I met my best friend. This is how the story goes… [...]

A Surprising Wholeness

By |March 23rd, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

“If the Lord had not been for us”…Psalm 124 Yesterday, as I pondered by these words, my mind retraced the many times God has literally saved my life. A home break-in. A mountain climbing slip. Running blind in the dark. A high-speed car accident. If the Lord had not been for me…wow. I thought of the many other ways God has saved (the Greek word sozo often translated in Enlish as “saved” means wholeness; healing) me from my own brokenness. [...]

“Am I Not Still There?”

By |March 16th, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , |1 Comment

Rising early one morning, unable to sleep, I crawled out of bed and tiptoed downstairs. As I walked past the breakfast nook window, I stopped to view the beautiful and unexpected sight before me. The full moon, in all its brightness, shone like a marquee; puffs of big white clouds surrounded the moon like a frame and highlighted its beauty. The mountains in the background completed the picture. I stood in awe. Closing my eyes, expressions of praise and thanksgiving [...]

What would you do if you knew your call was irrevocable?

By |March 1st, 2017|Categories: equipHER|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Every day, I listen to women’s stories of frustration as they bump the illusive glass ceiling. Women who know they are gifted, skilled, and called to lead, but can’t seem to find an opportunity, be promoted, receive equal pay, or get paid at all. I understand this frustration, because I have been there. It is painful and makes you want to quit. The interesting thing is, God promises that “his gifts and his call are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29 NIV). So where [...]

By Charity Rattray I recently spoke on the gifts of the Holy Spirit at a women’s retreat.  The day before I spoke I decided to take the scriptures about the Holy Spirit and write an introduction to the Giver of the Gifts. Each sentence you read below is taken directly from God’s Holy word.  You may understand how a gift is more treasured, when you actually know the giver.  Please allow me to introduce the Holy Spirit. I am the [...]
