There are many lovely and beautiful ladies in our churches! I love each of them and admire them for their qualities that I identify with, and for those qualities that I lack. All of us have differing talents and ability, strengths and weaknesses. Each of us has a certain set of responsibilities that God has given us, and I’m so glad that He has not left us to wonder and guess at what we should be about. Our Lord has directed us to some specific things we ought to be doing, who should be doing them, how we should be while doing...

I’m guilty.  As a mother of one boy and three girls, I admit that I cringe and have to turn away when my husband is rough with my son.   Just the other day we went down to the river with another family who has five boys and one girl to cook hotdogs, enjoy the scenery, and let the kids get dirty.  Good clean fun!  Or rather, good, messy, fun.  I don’t know about your husband, but with mine and my friend’s husband, when you mix water and dirt and four-wheelers and campfires….there shall...

 Honour widows that are widows indeed …she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.   (1 Timothy 5:3, 5). Widows were a prominent figure in the epistles as well as the early apostolic churches of the 1st through 3rd centuries.  The Bible encourages special honor be given to these godly women of the church, and their role became more and more organized and formalized in the early...

Deborah is one of the most famous of the Old Testament women, for she is the only woman among several men in the book of Judges.  She comes on the scene as did all the judges when the nation of Israel was backslidden an under oppression.  In Judges 4:4, we learn that Deborah was a wife, a judge, and a prophetess.  The argument from egalitarians and Christian feminists (so-called) is that since these women seemed like leaders in spiritual matters, then why is there...

Yesterday it seemed like my children were in trouble all day long.  It was a long day.  I wondered if I’m doing this right.   Are my expectations too high?  Have I not expected enough?  I want to believe that my own parenting style is fine because I can see parents who are more permissive than I on the one hand, and on the other hand I can see parents who are more overbearing than I am.  So I must be ok, right?  In light of the so called...
