Biblical Womanhood

Improve Someone’s Day!

Jim George Stood in his Sunday school class and said,

With every encounter, make it your aim that people are better off for having been in your presence. Try in every encounter to give something to the other person.

 Those are powerful words and such a great way to enter into any situation. As we study the next chapter in A Woman after God’s Own Heart, by Elizabeth George, we’re going to learn some simple and effective ways to encourage the hearts of other people.

The Waterfall of Ministry

Continuing in our review and series of A Woman After God’s Own Heart

Every hard thing you’re going through or have been through, God, in His infinite wisdom and providence wants to take and make it useful in your life, and in the lives of others. He does that by giving us opportunities to apply and sometimes also share what we’ve learned. It’s some kind of ministry, though it may not be given in a “ministry setting.” It often happens life on life as God brings people to us with whom we can pour ourselves with compassion, grace and mercy. We suddenly realize that the Lord has a ministry for us and we are awestruck at the opportunity to serve him.

The “I Will’s” of Homemaking

I’m the kind of person who needs a picture drawn in order to understand things better. Anyone else like that? Being a homemaker is drawn out so well in God’s Word, and it reveals that it’s more about who we are than what we do. It can seem overwhelming, but it’s really not as hard as we make it.

As a follow-up on my post on Wednesday about weaving a tapestry of beauty in our home, I”d like to offer two suggestions that will help us know how to implement those truths in God’s Word. My suggestions are regarding the list of “I will’s” that Elizabeth wrote in her book (A Woman After God’s Own Heart). My suggestions are given with a desire for all of us to implement these disciplines into our daily lives. How can we do that?
