I am a Women of White Privilege…

By |June 22nd, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

I am a woman whose heart seeks justice, equality, and dignity for every human being. Over the past few months though I have felt my voice go silent as I became paralyzed by the continued acts of violence and discrimination enacted against my African American friends, Hispanic sisters, and Muslim neighbors. The divide seems to be widening and the fear intensifying as people take their corners. In my silence, I have taken action. In my silence, I have decided to [...]

I Want

By |May 25th, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Day in and day out I see ads for things that I don’t need. But somehow just by knowing that I don’t have these advertised things, I now want them. For example, when I sit down to watch TV I’m not necessarily hungry, but after seeing that olive garden commercial, I really want some bread sticks. Or when I see an Apple commercial for the latest iPhone, I now want a new phone (when mine works perfectly fine). When I [...]

The Beautiful Mosaic of Brokenness

By |December 17th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

If you’re on the fence about registering for the NW Women's Conference: HER VOICE in March, please read this: You know how hindsight is 20/20? How you can look back and the path you’re on seems a lot straighter and more defined than it did when you first embarked on it— back when you didn’t even know it was a step, let alone a trail? Last fall I attended the women’s retreat of my local church and had the privilege [...]

Calling Card

By |October 8th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

By Sherrie St. Hilaire I marvel at those who can confidently identify their calling and describe when and how they received it. I’m sure I gaze into their dazzling certainty like a deer in the headlights. I’m inching toward my sixth decade and have yet to Sherlock my way through the mysteries of my calling. It eludes me. My quest to unearth it has frustrated the liver out of me. In my twenties I was convinced I was called to [...]

Find Your Lane and Stay In It

By |September 17th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose, The Power of Women|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Jen Ervig “Find your lane and stay in it!”  I first heard this piece of wisdom from Danice Squires at a women’s event at my church.  Since then, I often find myself meditating on it and it’s implications.  What she’s saying is find out what you’re good at and stick to it!  When we discover our giftings, our God given talents and abilities, develop them, and put them to work, only then, are we truly happy AND truly being [...]

Strategic Intersection

By |August 20th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

God is in the business of intersections, coordinating crossing points where things line up and click in harmony at exactly the right time.Every individual comes to a crossroads where they must choose whether or not they will allow themselves to be intercepted, molded, and shaped in God’s image and embark on a path of service for Him. [Intersection – the act of intersecting or the state of being intersected; to meet and cross at one or more points; to share some [...]

Elisha and the Jar of Oil

By |July 2nd, 2015|Categories: Bible Study, Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , , , , |1 Comment

By Angela Craig What are you waiting for? God has called you for a purpose. Why are you holding back? What do you feel you need to move forward? More education, money, a title, the right season in life, an invitation? So often we don’t think we have enough to offer, or we don’t have what it takes to succeed on God’s behalf. This belief is simply not true. Take a look at the story of Elisha and the jar [...]

“Costume and Prop” Envy

By |June 18th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , |1 Comment

By Joyce Williams The Apostle Paul, suffering in a Roman prison, encouraged the Philippian believers to remain strong, to rejoice always in their salvation and to remain focused on God and His purpose for their lives. Saying yes to God is saying yes to His script for me. He provides the “costumes and the props,” so to speak, that will best suit the role He enlisted me to fill. This means the opportunities and experiences presented to me will be [...]
