A Powerful Prayer

By |July 20th, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

“The power of prayer is on the end of the hearer, not the speaker.” Jodi Detrick We sometimes feel that if we could just muster up a truly powerful prayer, then our prayers would be answered in the way that we desire. I don’t know about you, but I just love a happy ending. A story with a pretty bow, tying all the ends together. Neat and tidy. But this isn’t life here on earth. And sometimes we are simply in [...]

Nothing is Wasted

I was thinking this morning how we all face difficulty and tragedy differently. Some go to anger and demand retribution, some go numb or dissociate and block it out and pretend nothing happened. Some go to God to try to understand, to find forgiveness. Some resort to substances, sexual activity or forms of extreme behavior. One thing we all have in common is we try to find some way to ease our pain. To remove the discomfort. To find peace [...]

By Brenda Franklin-Strout A moment. That’s all it takes, Sisters. As Mother, we know it takes but a moment for our children to soil even the best of Easter outfits. As Wife, it was just one moment to become his Mrs. And as a woman, called by God…it was that one moment that changed the direction of my life and suddenly clarity in my destiny was crystal and the doors swung wide and welcomed me to the party that others in my [...]

You Can Experience Peace—For a Lifetime

By |March 31st, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Angela Howard Every so often I read a book that’s so incredible I can’t help but become a crazy evangelist for it. If you’ve talked to me over the last month I’ve probably found a way to bring up this book. It wouldn’t be dramatic to say that Peace for Lifetime—Embracing a Life of Hope, Wholeness & Harmony Through Emotional Abundance by Lisa Murray  is a true life-changer—for your relationship with God, with yourself and with those you love.

Recovering From Injury

By Gail Johnsen Rehabilitating the Soul - Part 1 After my workout at the gym one day, while doing a routine stretching exercise, I heard a snap. Immediately I felt a sharp pain in the back of my leg.  I knew instantly I’d pulled my hamstring.  Serious? I was being careful! I was doing everything right! How did that happen? I wanted to scream. Someone helped me up but I could barely walk. I hobbled home, frustrated and angry. So [...]

I’m Not Ok

By Angela Howard Can I be 100% honest with you? There are days when I’m not okay. In fact there are days when I’m sad, angry or downright miserable. I’ve had quite a few of those days lately, and I’ve noticed that sometimes people are uncomfortable with my “not okay-ness.” Has this ever happened to you? My sweet friends and family want to fix me and move me on my way out of this uneasy territory. I appreciate their love [...]

Heart Shaped Raindrop – by Carmen Duppenthaler

By |January 31st, 2014|Categories: Pondering|Tags: , , , , , , |2 Comments

There are some days I wish would never come. Like the day we lost a friend, a daughter, a mom, a sister... These days leave me with many questions. Like a child, I ask why over and over again. God always answers the same way. He answers in love. He answers in mercy and grace. He answers in the gift of community. He answers in comfort and healing. He answers by capturing our tears and holding our hearts gently in [...]

The year of the broken Christmas tree lights…

By |December 4th, 2013|Categories: Pondering, Spiritual Formation|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

“The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” Walt Disney Company, Mulan    There are no words needed to tell you what is wrong with this Christmas tree. But maybe when you look at it, you see more than a tree with broken lights. You see a metaphor for your own life circumstances. A life that was once filled with hope and light somehow had the lights turned out, leaving you in the dark. Like the [...]
