God Girl ~ Jamie Grace
 
I can't help but say...
 
I'm a God girl
That's who I be
From the top of my head
To the soles of my feet
 
No, I can't deny it
Wouldn't even try
I'm Your girl
In a crazy world
 
I'm a God girl
That's who I be
From the top of my head
To the soles of my feet
 
No, I can't deny it
Wouldn't even try
I'm Your girl
For the whole wide world to see

Never Give Up ~ For Christ

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Never Give Up—For Christ
By Patricia Raybon

Perseverance is no joke. No walk around the park. It’s just flat-out hard. Why? We’re not bees. Or ants. Or dogs pulling sleds. Or salmon swimming upstream. These creatures and critters persevere by instinct—without thinking.

But, as women, we have to think and choose. So did Christian heroes—Tyndale, Wycliffe, Elliot, Tubman, Muller and more—have to decide by intention to take on the cause of Christ. Then stick with it.

Life handed these ordinary believers situations, but they didn’t fall and faint. They got up and hung on, determined to outlast difficult. And you and I can, too. Today, in fact, we can.

How? Consider Christ. In our own strength, that is, we may not feel like keeping our eyes on Jesus—“on whom our faith depends from start to finish,” says Hebrews 12:2. But think about all He endured. On hard days, seeing all the reasons to give up and give out—on ourselves, our loved ones, our friends, our church, our business, our Lord—look instead at Jesus. Look to Him to do more in us. Why? He endured more. Looking to Him, we’ll endure more, too. For His people. For His Kingdom. All for Him. Pressing on.

Patricia Raybon writes faith-building, life-changing books that help people heal.

This year, discover the blessings God has in store for you! In The One Year God’s Great Blessings Devotional, acclaimed writer and speaker Patricia Raybon leads you on a 365-day journey through Scripture that traces the connection between God’s virtues—his timeless, smart, life-giving principles—and his promised blessings to us. As you learn to live each day in a way that honors and blesses God, you’ll encounter the rewards he gives us here on earth as well as in heaven. (c) Amazon.com

To Wait on God...

Monday, October 24, 2011


“To wait on God means to pause
and soberly consider our own inadequacy
and the Lord’s all-sufficiency,
and to seek counsel and help from the Lord,
and to hope in Him.”
~ John Piper

It's Time to Leave a Godly Legacy...

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Loved this interview on 100 Huntley Street
with special guest Priscilla Shirer, author of The Resolution for Women.

This book was written in conjunction with the movie, Courageous,
A NEW MOVIE by the creators of Fireproof and Facing the Giants.



If you haven't seen Courageous,I highly recommend it!
I don't think I have ever seen a movie where I have wanted to stand up and cheer!!!
I whole-heartedly agree with the call for men to take a stand
and to lead their homes, marriages and families for the glory of Christ.
I haven't stopped thinking about the movie since I seen it; it touched my heart deeply.

And that's another reason why I feel so strongly about The Resolution for Women.

Like Priscilla, I have a heart to see women set FREE
and to be ALL that God has called them to be.

This book, The Resolution for Women
will be a great starting point
 to help you decide who it is that you want to be and it will
challenge you to live your life in a way that honors God.

It's time to leave a Godly legacy...

The Resolution for Women

Challenges all women to be intentional
about embracing and thriving
in God's beautiful and eternal calling on their lives.

NEVER Let Go of My Hand


"The best response to losses or thwarted hopes is praise:
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.
Remember that all good things ~ your possessions, your family and friends,
your health and abilities, your time ~ are gifts from Me.
Instead of feeling entitled to all these blessings,
respond to them with gratitude.
Be prepared to let go of anything I take from you,
but never let go of My hand!"

The Mighty Macs
THE MIGHTY MACS is based on the incredible true story of the 1971-72 Immaculata College team that started in obscurity but became the original Cinderella story in women's basketball. This team of pioneers went from barely making that inaugural tournament to the first dynasty in their game.

Girl Power GIVEAWAYS!!!


Resources to EMPOWER women to live out Biblical femininity!

To help empower you to live out Biblical femininity,
Hive Resources is giving you the chance to win
one of following inspiring “girl power” resources.


Biblical womanhood is not for the weak. In an age that seeks to obliterate God and His authority, modeling biblical womanhood involves spiritual warfare. Radical Womanhood seeks to equip new believers and long-time Christians alike, exposing the anti-God agenda of the three waves of feminism to date and presenting the pro-woman truth of the Scriptures. Illustrated with numerous personal testimonies, this book will dig deep into the Word and show how it can be lived out today. The foundation and core message of Radical Womanhood is consistent with the traditional complementarian teaching on biblical womanhood. However, the target audience, tone, and style are radically different. Most books on this subject take a heavily didactic tone that assumes an awareness of Christian lingo and a high degree of spiritual maturity. Radical Womanhood has the narrative approach appreciated by postmodern readers, but still incorporates solid, biblically-based teaching for personal application and growth.



Girls have gone wild! And we're not just talking about someone from the romance novel or star from the latest hit movie. She's the girl next door, your best friend, or someone in your family. She may even be you.

That's because the longing, the thrill, and the fun is real. Very real.

Mary Kassian isn't nave to that. But she knows there's another side to it--the devastation and heartache being wild can bring. Her insights from Proverbs on the differences between a saucy, seductive Wild Thing and a smart, biblically-savvy Wise Thing is a must read. Every minute you spend here will help you--or someone you love--replace the emptiness and guilt of being wild with the power of living out God's spectacular design for women.

But be prepared. This isn't your grandmother's handbook on etiquette. It's God's Word powerfully unfolded by someone He's commissioned to speak the truth in love. You'll be captivated, challenged, and impassioned to be far more than the world's model of the perfect woman. You read this book and apply its principles and you'll become something your Heavenly Father and Friend has always intended you to be: A Girl Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild.



A charge to women to recover what the feminist revolution hasrobbed them of: the God-given beauty, wonder, and treasure of theirdistinctive calling and mission.

The feminist revolution was supposed to bring women greaterfulfillment and freedom. Yet women today feel anything butfulfilled and free because they have lost the distinctiveness andrichness of their calling as women.

Now a movement is spreading seeds of hope, humility, obedience,and prayer-a call to return to godly womanhood-and its truth willresound in the hearts of readers through the powerful messages ofNancy Leigh DeMoss, Susan Hunt, Mary Kassian, Carolyn Mahaney,Barbara Hughes, P. Bunny Wilson, and Dorothy Patterson. Though eachauthor approaches the subject of godly womanhood differently, athread runs throughout that will instill joy and delight at thegreatness of God's created order and the part he wants women toplay in his grand, redemptive plan. Includes a study guide.



“In order to learn what it means to be a woman, we must start with the One who made her.” Working from Scripture, well-known speaker and author Elisabeth Elliot shares her observations and experiences in a number of essays on what it means to be a Christian woman, whether single, married, or widowed. Available in trade softcover and as a Living Book.


Written in partnership with Sherwood Pictures' upcoming film, COURAGEOUS, in The Resolution for Women, popular speaker and author Priscilla Shirer challenges all women to be intentional about embracing and thriving in God’s beautiful and eternal calling on their lives.

Like the men in the movie who resolve to fully accept their responsibilities before God, Shirer explains how today's women can and should live out their own resolution. It is "a defining banner that hangs over your life, written in the ink of your own choices." A woman's banner should be an accurate reflection of who she desires to be-someone completely Christ-centered who blesses and changes things in her world for the better.

The Resolution for Women inspires women with intentional, spirit-filled living from three unique angles. Section one, entitled, "This Is Who I Am," helps a woman define herself as "authentically me, purposefully feminine, surprisingly satisfied, and faithfully His." Section two, "This Is What I Have," invites her to value "my best, my blessing, my honor, and my heart." And Section three, "This Is What Matters To Me," focuses on joyfully honoring God as a wife, mother, and family member while resolving to live with the grace that leaves a godly legacy. The Resolution for Women is designed to inspire a revolution.

It begins with a single gunshot, and Bishop Lynn Peterson watches in horror as a good friend, who is a member of the New Orleans Saints, collapses on the street.When a medal the player wore—a medal Lynn had promised to return to the man's family—disappears, Lynn is thrust into a suspenseful and fast-moving journey through four assassinations, an attempt on her life, conflicts with a mysterious and ancient society, and a behind-the-scenes conspiracy that reaches all the way to the White House.The turbulent, unstoppable intrigue challenges Lynn mentally, physically, and spiritually as she engages in a desperate battle with an opponent who is just as determined to kill as Lynn is to stop him even though she has no idea where—or who—he will strike next.
