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

By Georgia (Jo) Kent
“…you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made….” Matthew 5:33 (NIV)
How many times have you been in a situation where someone tells you about a problem they have and you tell them that you will pray for them? Do you actually pray for them, or do you just say you will because it is a nice thing to say? Maybe your intentions are good, but do you follow through? I have been thinking about this a lot lately as God often pokes my conscience if I’m guilty of not following through with my promise to pray. Most of us have good intentions and tell ourselves that we will remember to pray later, but too often, we forget. Then our promise becomes a lie!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Life is about waking up every morning and knowing that you were born for this day with a purpose. Isn’t that so amazing! God picked you out before the world was created, to be His very own. He predestined you to fulfill a God-given calling. Did you know that you have a special plan for your life that only you can fulfill? How does that make you feel? Pretty special, I hope, because you are special! There is nobody else that can ever take your place in the universe. The truth is that there is no way for you to improve on God’s perfect plan for your life. The sooner you understand this, the sooner you can begin reaping His blessed rewards!
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 Holy Spirit lives inside of us. God’s word tells us; we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. We must not keep the Spirit locked up inside, but we must break the padlock so the Spirit can move back and forth into the temple to do God’s work. If we keep it inside us only, He cannot do the work intended. We must free the Spirit to touch the lives of others. Yes, when the ones who do not yet know Him and the ones that do.”
“Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the One Who died – more than that, who is at the right hand of God, Who indeed is interceding for us.” Romans 8:34
Jesus Who sits at the right Hand of God pleads and intercedes for us. How Awesome is that? Jesus died and paid the penalty for our sins, He knew no sin but for our sins He died. He rose again and continues to watch over us and take care of us and even pleads our case on a daily basis. When we sin we are to come to Him and confess our sin for He is Faithful and Just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We have an advocate that intercedes and pleads our case before the Father. Thank You JESUS. There is no one that can compare to You.
