You were made for Sabbath

By |August 24th, 2017|Categories: equipHER, Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Sabbath is not a list of rules, regulations or legalistic steps to follow. It is a requirement for human survival, in the same way that we must have oxygen and water. We must partake in Sabbath. We need rest for our physical bodies. We need renewal of our minds. We need to care for our souls within the context of an abiding relationship with God away from distractions and demands. We must remember that Sabbath was created by God along [...]

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. [...]

Dress What You Got and Make it Hot!

By Kelli Best Well, my birthday is this week! Now, this isn't a shameful way to prompt well wishes, although I will gladly receive them, it’s just that I have been thinking. Birthdays are just numbers, or really accomplishments. This week, I have achieved the number 48 and it doesn't scare me one bit! Oh, I realize I have now progressed to my “late” forties, but who cares! Well, actually, I do! Like most women, I have yet to attain [...]

The Illusion of Balance – Part 3

By |January 7th, 2014|Categories: Coaching, Leadership, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

In the Illusion of Balance – Part 1 I noted the principles of balance as: motion (forward movement), focus, intention, purpose, an end goal, courage, and contentment. Balance has a rhythm of give and take. Balance requires a personal awareness of one’s priorities, life mission, and season of purpose. In the Illusion of Balance – Part 2 we determined the difference between balance and busyness. Today, we will discuss the necessity of periods of rest and Sabbath to maintain balance. [...]

After a lovely weekend trip to a Bed-n-Breakfast with my husband and we decided to take a drive through the countryside on the way back to the airport. Nothing but rolling hills and fresh cut hay could be seen for miles across the expansive horizon. About thirty minutes into our drive, I started sneezing. As time passed, my eyes watered and within sixty minutes my noses was running along with my sneezing and scratchy eyes. With wisdom, my husband said, [...]

So you are already tired of the Seattle weather and it’s only November 1st!

By |November 1st, 2012|Categories: Pondering|Tags: , , , , , , |1 Comment

So you are already tired of the Seattle weather and it’s only November 1st! How quickly we forget that it was sunny for 48 glorious days and over 70 degrees for 19 consecutive days, hitting 90 degrees five times during the six week streak (Sistek, 2012). We are fickle human beings. And understandably so. Just look at the contrast between these two pictures. The baron, gray, and dormant trunk that lines the driveway leading to my son’s school are a [...]
