Tips to Finding Your Word of the Year

Over the past few years there has been a movement of change in how we view the new year coming in and our focus. For many, New Year’s Day is about resolutions, goals we plan to focus on for the upcoming year. The down side of resolutions is that we often set ourselves up for failure instead of new beginnings. With resolutions we focus on what we need to change, what is wrong, or habits we need to do no [...]

Turtle Like Tendencies

I’m sure you’re all familiar with the old adage, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  I get the heart of this message and agree with it, truly this world does not need another voice joining the chorus of negativity, whining, complaining or insult throwing.  Beyond that, I try to be a person that if I am speaking I am hoping it is to add to the equation and not subtract. A couple of months of [...]

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.

Is God an Olympic Athlete?

By |August 25th, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

By Ashlee Best McKayla Maroney: Unlikely fall costs American gymnast her Olympic gold Why do we lose heart when Olympians fail? When a gymnast falls or bobbles on the balance beam? When a swimmer’s fingertips touch the wall hundredths of seconds slower than the swimmer in the lane next to them? When they trip over a hurdle or stumble in a sprint? When a synchronized diver’s partner is just a little bit off and not a perfect match? [...]

Survival of the Joyful

By Kim Martinez Have you noticed that sometimes life is just hard? I’ve been reading the paper and listening to the news a bit more this week.  Our world is spinning in tension.  Life is hard.  In times of turmoil, we have to endure a lot of change, which adds another dimension of stress to our lives.  Consider: We change the way we use money – because there is less of it. We change our schedule because we lose a [...]

Have You Lost Your Focus?

By Kim Martinez Imagine you are Joseph (the guy in Genesis).  As a young boy, God spoke to you in a dream.  Then, just to make sure you had the picture, He spoke to you in a second dream – this one even bigger than the first.  God told you that you would see your siblings bow down to you. Now Joseph wasn’t just one of 12 brothers.  He was the next to the youngest, and the first born of [...]

You Want Me to Do What?

By |January 28th, 2016|Categories: Her Voice, Leadership, Purpose, The Power of Women|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

By Cyndi Pollard “You want me to do what?” I said followed by nervous laughter. Nervous laughter is what I do when someone suggests that I do something that I am totally inadequate to do.   You see, my Pastor asked me to consider becoming a licensed minister! Are you kidding? I thought. This was a fair question to ask myself since I had just recently decided it was ok for me (a woman) to serve communion, which I would only do, if my husband was serving on the other side of the aisle. So my becoming [...]

Show is Better Than Tell

By Joyce Williams When I was a little girl, my mother sang hymns every day from morning 'til night . . . and I probably know the words to every verse of every hymn in most hymnbooks. My vivid memory of my mother includes her curly brown hair, warm smile, cotton dress that she no doubt made, white anklets and canvas shoes . . . cooking, sewing, working in her garden or visiting shut-ins or teaching Sunday school or VBS, always with [...]

The Greatest and Most Rewarding Fundraiser You’ll Ever Experience

By Kristen Zuray Belief. Faith. Surrender. These simple words hold the secret to great power. They seem so simple, and yet, they end up being so elusive. Every time I think I understand these words, I am thrown into a situation in which its quite clear that I don’t. Back in April, my family took a huge plunge into faith. We decided to send my oldest daughter, Anna, to Honduras on a mission trip with the youth group, and to [...]
