Where is Your Sitting Room?

Where is Your Sitting Room?
This is our sitting room. I love this room for many reasons. Often my husband and I talk in the evening here about our day, I have tea with friends in this room, Keepers Ministry prayer team meets in this room sometimes, and I start most days in this room by having my time with the Lord here. This is where I go to lay my burdens down and gain wisdom and guidance for the day ahead. My deepest thoughts, feelings and passions are expressed and Read More

What Do You Need Rest From?
What do you need rest from? Is it physical rest from a tired or diseased body? Is it emotional rest from trauma, a season of difficulties or a person that constantly wounds you?

EPIC FAIL!!!

EPIC FAIL!!!
EPIC FAIL!!! For someone like me with perfectionistic tendencies it was hard to take. Okay, it wasn’t a big life moment…it was a craft project. Still, it was a failure. The idea in my head was to artistically tear the edges of a poster, use Mod Podge to “glue” it to an artist’s canvas and set it in an open backed frame. Simple right? Well, it didn’t go as planned!

I Ran the Whole Show...or so I Thought!

I Ran the Whole Show...or so I Thought!
Do we love to get testimonies??? You bet we do! They are so encouraging and we rejoice in the growth these testimonies represent. What better way to celebrate Mother's Day than with an encouraging story of a woman's changed life? It is truly remarkable what Truth, His Truth, can accomplish in our lives. Grab a cup of coffee and come be encouraged by Kathleen's testimony... Read More

Spunky Keeper's Take on Communication!

Spunky Keeper's Take on Communication!
Have you met our guest anonymous writer, “Spunky Keeper”? She sometimes struggles with the things she is learning from the Called to be a Keeper Bible study and she’s not shy about sharing those difficulties with us. Thank goodness she feels comfortable saying what we might not ever dare say out loud!
Today we get to eavesdrop on a conversation “Spunky Keeper” had with a friend she met in her Called to be a Keeper Bible study class...

It Changed My Life!

It Changed My Life!
Although we've heard that from women who have taken the Called to be a Keeper Bible study, ministry work is hard. The enemy fights with gusto to keep us from sharing God’s Biblical priorities with today’s women. The entire Keepers Ministry team has experienced various trials and tribulations, but that is only half the story... Read More

by Lori Merrill

The heartbeat of this ministry is to teach women what God's Word says about our priorities what we are to be and do. My desire is to also encourage women to spread this message to their friends, daughters, and all the women in their lives. Sometimes this is done through actual teaching and other times it is done by one's lifestyle. When I come across another avenue to get this message to women (including young girls and teens) then I am not only thrilled to share it with you, but also feel a responsibility to do so. Please take a moment to watch this video my twenty year old daughter sent to me. Once you view it then I ask you to do a few things:

  • Think about what your actions, your words, and your lifestyle promote. Do they promote the importance of Proverbs 31 or Victoria's Secret?
  • Sit and listen to what God has to say to you about this.
  • Agree with God about changes you need to make in your thinking and lifestyle.
  • Then send it to the women in your life, young and old, as well as your sons that might need to hear this.

It is worth it!
