We seek to serve women with love and grace. We prayerfully seek to glorify God by offering events and activities for our church and community that are biblically-focused and address the spiritual needs of women, support missions, and promote fellowship, thereby encouraging and strengthening each woman’s relationship with Jesus Christ. Through prayer, God’s word, and the power of the Holy Spirit, we desire to create a fellowship of women that serve others with compassion and love each other with a spirit of grace and forgiveness. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)
In this world, broken things have no value and are thrown out. Anything we no longer need, we throw away. Damaged goods are rejected. Thank the Lord that when we are broken, He does not throw us away. Did you know that God sometimes allows you to be broken so we will get out of self and your life will no longer be about you. God can not use you if you are in a constant pity party. Broken things and broken people are the result of sin. Maybe not your sin, but sin that you have allowed around you. God can take what has been broken and remake it into something beautiful. If you will allow Him,He will fix what is broken and make you whole and give your life meaning, purpose and joy.
The writings in this journal are meant to be for the ones that I love. Each one will be from my heart. Because of my relationship with God and to bless those who will read them. May God through His Holy Spirit, which dwells within me say the things to others that I have not been able to share with my lips.
“The Lord is my Shepard. He guides me day to day. He would not have me ever hurting anyone if I can help it. Jesus would have us walk day by day the same way He would walk. He would have us be ever aware of the fellow man and his needs and concerns. We must never hurt others in our walk with The Lord. The Holy Spirit lives inside us and He longs to break through and help others along the way. The same way that Jesus did when He walked on the earth. God brings people to us, we do not search for them. The Holy Spirit quickens us to the one He brings. Be alert and be tuned in to the Spirit.”

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake;” Psalm 23:1-6
About mountain tops and valleys; I have given this a lot of thought recently. Maybe its because I have spent a good deal of time both on the mountain top and also in the valley. I began to realize that these mountains have significant meaning for us all. God began to show me the things about our journey that takes us up and down and all around this mountain. How the terrain is so different with every step we take. Sometimes, we can skip along freely with no obstacles in our path and other times we may need a rope to hang on to. Sometimes it may be glorious sunshine and other times it may be a blinding storm.

“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV)
When I’m down and out, hurting and feeling alone, I want someone to show me compassion. I want a light to shine in the darkness and I want to feel it’s warmth pointed directly at my soul. I’ve learned over the years that God’s compassion is real. It is constant. It runs deeper and truer than anything that could possibly be offered by anyone else. Compassion is there for us whenever we need it. We just have to accept it and then, more importantly, show it to others. Compassion is that feeling deep inside us that wells up and moves us to actually make others condition better. Compassion is the hands and feet of sympathy.
