Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos

Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos
Whether you are celebrating this weekend with a house full of people, finishing a project, relaxing by a pool quietly or working ahead for the fall semester, we thought a recipe was just what was needed today. This one is a tried and true favorite that Paige Redwine, one of our Keepers Ministry Team members, wants to share with you. The great thing about it is you can Read More

The Sharing Plate

The Sharing Plate
Are you looking for a way to show the love of Christ through acts of giving and serving others? Are you in need of a way to break the ice with a neighbor, friend or co-worker? I don’t know about you, but I am very aware of how busy I can get and simply neglect to serve and bless those around me.
Kelly Weir, who is a dear friend and leads our Keepers Ministry Prayer Team, recently told me about this unique way to give while encouraging others to give as well. I hope it will Read More

A Peek into My Journal

A Peek into My Journal
If I could give you a sneak peek into my journal and prayers for the last 10 days you would see things such as these...
Lord, I thank you for the incredible work that you did in my life and in the women's lives. Lord, they heard You, they want to know You more, and they want You to strengthen them to run toward their giants.

Buffet Line Idea

Buffet Line Idea
The Keepers Team had their monthly meeting yesterday! Just so you know more about our Ministry Team and how we function, I thought this would be a good time to share a little about our meetings. We start with an hour of prayer (prayer team & any Keepers team member that can attend), we all have lunch together and then the Keepers Team (and any of the Prayer Team that wants to participate) spend 2 1/2 hours of brainstorming, sharing, planning and updating. I am so thankful for these women I get Read More

A BIG Boost to Your Spiritual Growth!

A BIG Boost to Your Spiritual Growth!
Do you sometimes feel like you need a shot of B12 for your spiritual journey? We all have slumps at times and feel sluggish as well; just like we do with our physical bodies. Memorizing God’s Word may be the “shot in the arm” that you need right now to give you a little boost of energy (spiritually speaking). Read below how a group of friends determined a plan to continue the habit of memorizing Scripture that they began in the Called to be a Keeper Read More

The Disciplined Study of Scripture

The Disciplined Study of Scripture
Regardless of how busy we become with all things Christian, we must remember that the most transforming practice available to us is the disciplined intake of Scripture. -Donald S. Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life

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

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!
