You are invited!

I am so excited about our Girls with Swords event on February 23rd at the Ramada Conference Center in Mandarin! Ever since reading Girls With Swords by Lisa Bevere last year I have been wanting to share this message with the women around me.  I know from conversations with many of you that you know there is a greater purpose for your life that you have yet to step into.   But it doesn't just happen! It's time to recognize that you have an enemy that does not want you to live out your purpose.  He will do anything and everything to keep you distracted from what God has placed inside of you. We need to be reminded that the Word...

What's your distraction?

For some of us the answer is obvious... for some we're more like Eve. You don't  have to read far in the Bible to read about distractions.

Are you selfish?

Selfish: 1. : concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself : seeking or concentrating on one's own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others 2. : arising from concern with one's own welfare or advantage in disregard of others <a selfish act>  My husband Ron is known for saying, "It all goes back to selfishness" whenever dealing with issues.   So it's funny when we're discussing something with all the family and one of us will chime in,  "I know Dad, it all goes back to selfishness!" But it really does. The Bible starts out with examples of Selfishness.  From Lucifer's escapades to Adam and Eve in the garden. I think it's so much a part of our nature that we...
