Need Some Valentine’s Day Heart Prep?

Need Some Valentine’s Day Heart Prep?

Tomorrow is the day. The stores have been a sea of cupid’s hearts, pinks, reds, and mushiness for weeks now. We’ve had to wade our way through aisles of “romantic” odds and ends just to buy groceries. But tomorrow should bring all of that to a conclusion. Romantic moments will be spent. Flowers will be sent. Lovers will exchange the stuff they bought in the grocery aisle. And one more Valentine’s Day will be in the books. But for some, Valentine’s Day can be one of the most dreaded days of the year. Are you ready for the day, or do you need to do some heart preparation?

For My Sisters Who Need to Be Loved

For My Sisters Who Need to Be Loved

(Guest Post by Molly Hilbert) From the first day this website went live, I’ve been privileged to have Molly serve as the Website Administrator. I actually first “met” Molly when she left a comment on one of my True Woman blog posts. That was back in the day when Molly was a single teen. Now, she’s married to her college sweetheart (both are graduates of Moody Bible College) and has experienced a bit more life and grown in her walk with God beyond those teen years. Molly is a young woman with a heart and passion for God and a willingness to serve others for His glory. For almost five years, Molly has poured herself into ministering to women and spreading God’s glory through serving you, the readers of this site. Every aspect of the technical operations of the website is taken care of by Molly. Week in and week out she loads the posts, she finds pictures to go with those posts, approves comments, she forwards emails to me when necessary, and she serves as a huge blessing and encouragement in my life! She also has life-lessons to share through her gift of writing. If you’ve followed the blog for very long, you know that I occasionally invite her to drop off a guest post on the blog, so today, you’ll be blessed to hear her share some personal moments with us . . . here is my dear friend, Molly ~

My Favorite February Memory

My Favorite February Memory

I’m taking you on a trip down memory lane with me and if you don’t like a romantic story, just tune out this blog post (or read one of last week’s posts) because today is intentionally mushy. By mushy, I mean, I’m going to tell you about my very first Valentine’s Day with the love of my life. The day was major mushy—in a good way!

From Scripture, one of my favorite women would definitely be considered an influencer. Abigail’s influence made a lasting impact through executing a bold plan. Abigail brought protection to King David—through which...

Designed to be a Powerful Influence

Designed to be a Powerful Influence

Looking back now, I don’t know how this young woman had the nerve to approach me, because back in the day, I was one intimidating fierce woman. Her voice was shaking as she timidly ventured an attempt at confronting my cold and businesslike demeanor, “You just don’t seem to care about people . . . You seem so hard and matter of fact. I mean, for instance . . . I’ve never even seen you cry...
