Let’s Be Sheep!

Feb 14, 2020

By Val Bantz

Sheep. Lots of sheep. Sheep around every bend. Sheep in every field. So many sheep I could fall asleep counting them all. :) Being from Iowa and used to seeing only cows, I delighted in the landscape of sheep on a trip to Ireland, Scotland and England this past October.

One singular sheep comes to mind. As we nervously drove on the left side of the road, we rounded a bend and there...

Embracing the Beauty in the Broken

Jan 15, 2020

By Shannon Clark

Embrace. This word gives me all the yummy feelings. A word associated with many wonderful things, like a physical embrace with another, embracing a beautiful view or a sweet moment in time. When I think of “embrace,” I imagine warmth and happiness. At the root, embrace is about acceptance. When you embrace a person, a view, a situation or circumstance, you accept...

By Nancy Lindgren

I suppose most of us have heard the term GOAT – meaning Greatest Of All Time. We all have our own opinions on who those people might be in lots of different categories. For me, it looks like this:

Greatest Basketball Player Of All Time – Michael Jordan, duh.

Greatest Worship Leader Of All Time – Chris Tomlin, is there any doubt?

Greatest Hubby Of All Time...

Dec 18, 2019

By Haley Osborn

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.” - Luke 1:45

Nestled in the hills of the Galilean countryside sits a village. “Can anything good come out of Nazareth” (John 1:46)? A small, lowly town filled with ordinary people, including a young woman engaged to a man named Joseph. She travels to Jerusalem to celebrate...

With You

Dec 04, 2019

By Nancy Lindgren

I’m breaking the “one word” rule for 2020 and going with two words instead. Gasp! I know you are probably thinking, “How could she?” I had to do it. These two words have been jumping out at me this whole past year as I have read my Bible, as I’ve heard people talking about mentoring, and as I have worshipped my God in song.

My two words are:...

By Valerie Bantz

Who’s ready for turkey and pumpkin pie?! Ready or not, Thanksgiving 2019 is upon us! 

Every year on Thanksgiving Day, I write a Top Ten list of things I’m thankful for. This year as I ponder my list, mentoring keeps coming to mind. 

I’m increasingly thankful for the role of mentoring in my life. My mentor and my mentees have supported me, prayed with...

A Woman of Influence

Nov 14, 2019

By Nancy Lindgren

In honor of my dear friend, Karen Zummo, who passed away on November 4, 2019.

I’ve only known Karen for one year but in that short amount of time she has made a great impact on my life and many others. Karen served on the mentoring team with me at my church and she was one of those natural mentors who was like a magnet to women looking for someone a little further down...

Practical Prayer Pointers for Difficult People

Nov 06, 2019

 By Haley Osborn

 

As people of God, why are we surprised when we encounter people who oppose us? Jesus promised His disciples, “And you will be hated for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22, ESV).

 

Throughout history, followers of Christ have endured great pain and suffering at the hands of people who oppose them....

When Life Knocks You Down

Oct 16, 2019

BAM! I was six years old and knocked to the ground without much warning. I lay there, knowing what happened, yet wondering what in the world just happened.  

One beautiful summer day, I was at my brother’s baseball game watching from the stands with my friend when we spotted the merry-go-round in the distance. “Do you want to go play?” she asked. “Yes! But I...

Don't be Afraid of Brokenness

Oct 02, 2019

 By Angelica Roszhart

In just a moment, life can change so abruptly. Mid-afternoon on July 13, 2018 was that abrupt, life-changing moment for me. I could barely make out my mom’s words as she told me, between sobs, that my beloved older brother had been killed in a single-engine plane crash just hours earlier. He was only 30 and left behind his wife who he was madly in love...
