Women’s Bible Study

The reason why this particular post is entitled, “Women’s Bible Study” is because not only do I believe that Christian women should be plugged into one, I also believe that we need to consider hosting one (as the Lord leads you of course). This is all a part of helping to fulfill The Great Commission. Before Jesus ascended into heaven, [...]

Sometimes, I even [...]

God Loves YOU!

Did you just need to hear that today? Because He does. Sometimes you just need to be reminded of it by hearing it or seeing it. Listen, sis. It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, last month, or last year (even today), He loves you.
