He Gets It

By |April 13th, 2017|Categories: equipHER, Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

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. [...]

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 [...]

Relinquishing Anxious Thoughts

By |February 23rd, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |1 Comment

By Rosemarie Kowalski Search me, God, and know my heart;     test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me,     and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24 NIV Morning. It should be a new beginning. A fresh start. And often it is. But once in a while, I wake with a stiff neck or clenched jaw from the worries or cares that have occupied my mind while I slept. [...]

By Angela Howard Embracing a Life of Hope, Wholeness and Harmony Have you ever felt like peace was just an elusive idea meant for inspirational quotes or holiday sentiments? What would it be like to experience Peace for a Lifetime —real peace in our relationship with God, with our emotions, and with our relationships? This might seem like a far off dream, but it is possible! After receiving Christ as our Savior we experience God’s grace working in and through our [...]

I Ruined Santa

By |December 22nd, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Julie Anderson I love the holidays. I really love the magic of Christmas especially through the eyes of a child...especially through the eyes of my children. It has always been fun to play into and "feed" the belief in Santa, the belief in something that we can't see. Children are a wonderful example of faith. All of that said, I "ruined" Santa for my children. A couple years ago my young children asked some questions about why Santa's giving [...]

I’m Not Perfect

By |December 8th, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |1 Comment

By Gail Johnsen   “I’m not perfect, you know.” She squinted her eyes a bit with exasperation in your voice. As if I thought she should be. Often such a statement has to do with the mistaken belief that the spiritual life is a static state of moral and virtuous personal achievement. Claiming we are not perfect is a way of giving ourselves a break for not measuring up to this perceived standard of moral excellence. Of course, no one [...]

Relationships Take Three: Never Trust your Friends

By |November 3rd, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Jen Ervig Never trust your friends?! What on earth does that mean? It means don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket UNLESS...that one basket is God. Don’t put all your eggs or trust in one basket that is not God. According to goodenglish.org, it’s a piece of advice that means you shouldn’t concentrate all your efforts in one area as you could lose everything. When considering relationships, I would amend the definition to “you shouldn’t place all [...]

When the Cup-bearer Forgets your Name

By |October 20th, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , |1 Comment

By Heidi Keeler It's always kind of awkward when someone forgets your name but it can be kind of painful when they just forget all about you entirely. Especially when you were hoping they could help get you out of jail. When you are stuck in a place you never wanted to be, don't deserve to be, and/or it feels like your dreams and your potential are slowly withering away - that's when you really, REALLY want someone to remember your [...]

Gates

By |October 6th, 2016|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Kelli Best Gates, I hate them!  My daughters are 24 and 17, yet I have three baby gates in my house.  Why, because of Piper, our 14 month old lab/pointer puppy.  She has reduced me to a prisoner in my own home.  In an effort to keep her out, I have to lock myself in.  She is a pilferer, so if  an item is not put away or higher than she can reach, it will be chewed to bits [...]
