Why Me Time Is Not Selfish

I have learned a lot in the past year as I struggled and strived through the first year of motherhood. It has been filled with exciting moments as well as those times when I have had to dig into the Lord’s strength. I either have nothing left to give or am tempted to give a fleshly response when encountering frustration. This past year has stretched me exponentially. However, one of the most valuable things I actually have “learned” has had {Read More}

The Gift of a Godly Mother-in-Love

Page Hughes is my mentor. She is also my mother-in-law, but I call her my mother-in-love. I have heard her use the term “in-loves” for those people who come into your family not because of blood relation or marriage, but because you love and choose them. Sometimes, though, we are fortunate and get a double scoop of blessings. I came into her family through marriage, but loved her before I ever changed my last name. God blessed me richly when {Read More}

What Oreos & Cheetos Have to Do with Faithfulness

While each of these ladies may not know any of us personally, their words have impacted many of our lives.

Cindy Sampson ~ A Faithful Testimony

Cindy Sampson was saved as a child in her home in Defuniak, Florida as she watched a Billy Graham crusade on television. She knew she was a sinner and needed Jesus so when Graham asked those who wanted to be saved to pray she did. Though she was young and the only one in her home who desired to go to church, she asked neighboring families weekly for rides to area churches. As she grew up, God revealed Himself to {Read More}

Moody In Mentoring Moment’s mailbag, I would say the number one question asked is requesting help in locating a mentor.

What It Takes To Be a Mentor

Women often ask me to mentor them in their marriages. The marriage road has been rocky for us – we’re the first to admit that – but we keep at it with persistent determination. These women know I will be honest with them, and that I will challenge them. But I will not ask them to do things I am not willing to do myself. Mentors are not preachers, and are more than just teachers. Mentors are those who are {Read More}

Mentoring Marriage

It’s not unusual for younger women to ask older women for some advice on marriage. Sometimes friends ask friends, nieces ask aunts, granddaughters ask grandmothers, daughters ask moms. It’s natural for women to want strong, healthy marriages and to talk to others about how to do it better. As the older woman, one thing to guard against here is husband-bashing. It starts out simply – they’re just describing what life is like at home. But there is a fine line {Read More}

All That and a Bag of Chips

Picture a stadium scene. You are running a race. From the packed stands you hear the cries of many people. Some shout, “That’s a pipe dream, get real.” Others, “Prepare yourself for the worst.” Not to be outdone, another group whispers, “She’s not our type. Did you hear about her past? Look what she is wearing!” Some do not even bother to stand as you run past, their silence and averted eyes say it all. Joyce Landorf Heatherly describes a {Read More}
