Wouldn’t it be great if the latest fashions were modest and television promoted honorable themes and movie stars were good role models? It is hard to imagine, isn’t it? Our culture is far from a wholesome place for our teen daughters. One of the most serious challenges teens face is a myth that permeates our culture. It claims that a worldly woman is strong and secure while a pure woman is naïve and vulnerable.
This is a great read for women of all ages and stages of life. Young women are barraged with devaluing images in music videos, reality TV, and magazine ads. Ayesha offers the appealing contrasted image of being wonderfully made in the image of God; the daughter of The King; a Divine Princess. She reminds all women of their self worth and purpose from God’s perspective.
Why is it important to love and value the Word and to understand its connection and relevance to our life? Are the stories too familiar, or dry and stale? Does God's Word seem far removed from our modern lives? Stories in the Word that we may associate with children or think of as simple Bible stories really deeply reveal God to us. This Bible study helps us understand the value of the Word, and inspires us to make connections in our daily lives.
Lisa Schnell is the wife of Mark Schnell, an elder in the Boston Church of the International Churches of Christ, and leads a family group along with her husband Mark. Lisa was reached out to on-the-job and baptized by a man in the traditional Church of Christ who eventually would become her father-in-law.
After seven years of marriage, Lisa and her husband and their two small children moved to Providence, Rhode Island, to be a part of the church there. Due to a job change for Mark and the moving of the Spirit, Lisa and her family relocated to Methuen, Massachusetts, in 1993 where they currently serve the Northwest Region of the Boston Church of Christ.
I am alone. No one understands my problems. I know me best. No one understands my situation. No one has the pressures I do. No one…no one…no one….
What sort of messages are you sending your brain on a daily basis? More importantly, what sorts of messages are you sending you heart? Mark Twain said, “A man's character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation.”
In many parts of the world we just celebrated Mother’s Day. No matter where you live we want to take a moment to say thank you for all the ways you give and serve as a mother.
For the moms out there I wanted to post a class from Lin Beaty on “Ten Gifts We Can Give Our Children That Can Never Be Taken Away”. It takes courage to believe and hold to the fact that God is with us no matter what life circumstance we find ourselves in. God defends us and is with us all, including the widows, the orphans and the fatherless.
