But did you tell them about Me?

If you or your team has ever shied away from boldly sharing Jesus with your guests and your women in attendance, this post is for you. After a discussion at our last women’s ministry team meeting God reminded me of a time when my desire and intentions to share Jesus while well-meaning, were misguided. Perhaps you can relate… The first year of our newly formed MOPS group we shared Jesus through “lifestyle evangelism”. Our team’s plan was … [Read more...]

Evening Women’s Bible Study in Panama

My husband and I recently traveled with SCORE International to Panama. We tagged along with Justin, our former Youth Pastor, his wife, Megan, and the College and Career Class from our former church. It was our first-ever mission trip. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing specifically about how we “did women’s ministry” in Panama. You never know when God may send you to love on women in another country or another community. It is my … [Read more...]

The Most Revealing Question You Can Ask After an Event

A couple of weeks ago our Youth Pastor asked me a question about a past Youth event that proved to be incredibly revealing. It’s a question I know you’ll find to be valuable as your team completes a women's ministry event assessment. We had participated in an event with another church a few months back and he asked me: What do you remember about that event? He wasn’t looking for a super spiritual response, but my gut reaction. What … [Read more...]

Why I’m Tired of Bible Study Books

For the past several months God has been increasing my discomfort with the Bible “studies” we’ve been doing at our church. I've come face to face with the fact that I'm tired of Bible study books... Like many of you, our women’s ministry holds weekly Bible study meetings one morning most weeks. For the past several years we’ve used Bible study books as our curriculum. I’ve shared about several of the book studies we’ve used. I was … [Read more...]

8 Habits of an Effective Women’s Ministry

I’m curious, how would you describe the way your women’s ministry team operates? I'm guessing the word "effective" may not be the first word that comes to mind... If you had to pick, which description below comes closest? We pick and choose events and activities based on our team member’s passions and interests. We plan one event at a time. We never know what we’ll do next. It’s often based on the next great idea we stumble upon. … [Read more...]

As answers are shared you’ll uncover new information about the people in your group. Chances are you’ll discover a shared favorite restaurant or TV show. You may realize Susie also … [Read more...]

Book Review & Giveaway of None Like Him by Jen Wilkin

*Please note this post contains affiliate links. Any purchase you may make helps to cover the costs of this site. Thank you! How big is God to you? Do you really, truly see Him as all-knowing? Can you wrap your brain around his omnipresence? If we’re going to be honest, I think a lot of us (myself included) put God in a box. Not necessarily purposefully. Our limited minds struggle to grasp the unlimitedness of God. When the … [Read more...]

The Beauty of Events at Other Churches

Last week we invited the women of our church to attend an event off-campus at another church. Why you might ask? Here’s the back story…When we made our calendar of events last summer, we had tentatively planned to find a local location to view the Priscilla Shirer simulcast in April. Two things happened since we penciled in that event on our women’s ministry calendar. We completed the The Armor of God  (affiliate link) by Priscilla … [Read more...]
