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

“There was no room for Jesus in the Inn.” Luke 2:7
Is your life spinning out of control in a whirlwind of activity that is leading you nowhere fast? Have you gotten caught up in the busyness of the holiday season and it has caused you a great deal of stress? The enemy of your soul wants to short-circuit the blessings the Lord has for you by cramming your schedule so full of activity that you forget to make time to spend with Jesus. He wants to distract you, and he is always engaged in a plot to get you on a path that seems good but will ultimately lead you away from God’s presence. There is no room for Jesus in our hearts when we’re rushing around, pushing to get more done, and trying so hard to make people happy. Just like the Innkeeper whose Inn was too full for Jesus, we may have no room left to schedule unhurried time to appreciate and enjoy Jesus.
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.
“I believe The Lord would have me live for Him and be a witness for Him just as I live my life. I will go down new roads that eventually turn into country gravel roads and from there I will blaze new trails out into the wilderness. (The places that I am not so familiar with) it is there that Jesus will show himself through me. We should live our lives in a way of love and compassion for others and in this way people see Jesus.”
It’s that time of year again. December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas. But what is the real meaning of Christmas? Is it the gifts under the tree, the lights in the windows, the cards in the mail, turkey dinners with family and friends, snow in the yard, stockings hanging in the living room, and shouts of “Merry Christmas” to those who pass us in the streets? Is this really Christmas?
For many people, Christmas is a time of sorrow. They don’t have the extra money to buy presents for their children, family, and friends. Many are saddened at Christmastime when they think of their loved ones who will not be able to come home for various reasons. Turkey dinners may be only a wish and not a reality for some.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
Love, Communication, and relationships are all important to women. We enjoy nurturing the bond of friendship by spending time together, whether we talk at work, at church or over coffee. We yearn to connect on a deeper conversational level with someone that understands us. We share our longings and losses, desires disappointments and our struggles. Loving friendships brings us so much joy and fulfillment. While emotional bonds with other friends are essential to our well-being, so is our relationship and connection with God. This should be the most important relationship in our life.
