  • Joy in the Journey

    Though life may toss some surprising, or not so surprising, trials our way, they are a part of our journey in life. When we lean in to the Lord, He will give us rest and the grace to make it through. How we navigate through those times is the key to successful living.

  • Tears and Laughter

    Being a woman often takes us to places with many hills and valleys, ups and downs. How do we deal with them successfully? We can be strong. We can be victorious. We also need a healthy release for our emotions through laughter and a reality that it’s okay to cry at times.

  • Relationships/Friendships

    We are made by Creator God for relationship. What does this look like and how is it different for us as women? How can we develop meaningful relationships with other women, and become stronger through our sisterhood?

  • Ordinary Women—Extraordinary God

    This theme encourages women going through tough times to see that the outcomes aren’t dependent on them. 2 Corinthians 4:7: “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

  • Single Again and Christian

    Beginning new relationships after a divorce can be a sticky wicket. Our culture sometimes has invaded some Christians’ minds, sometimes even using scripture to support positions contrary to scripture. How do we walk through this maze to find a suitable partner for life?

  • Unplanned Pregnancies and Christianity

    The way God has made a woman’s heart to nurture and value life should influence decision-making. What seems so simple is very complex, indeed, especially for a person who desires a relationship with the Lord God, Creator.

  • Mental Illness in Ones You Love

    When someone near you is struggling, how do you recognize the signs that they need help? Where do you turn for both yourself and the other in need?

  • Christian Grandparenting

    No greater joy, yet how does God desire grandparents to feed His little lambs? With this blessing comes spiritual responsibility to pass on your legacy of faith.

  • Growing Old and Finding Purpose

    Does our vision for living change as we age? How do we find the place God wants us to be, and find our purpose anew? The Bible shows us how to dwell in His presence even when our physical activity wanes.

  • Adoption

    We are adopted into the Heavenly Kingdom as spiritual children, chosen and adopted as His. Physical adoption should be similar as a child becomes a part of a family’s personal history, blessed by their love and privileges.
