Prayer as Work

Leadership by Christian women should look radically different than any other type of leadership, because Christian women understand the power of praying. Prayer may be the hardest work Christians do to lead effectively in a world that has moved away from God.

Minette Drumwright, in her book The Life that Prays, makes a case that prayer should be a strategy with two major purposes: “(1) to know God in Christ intimately, to love Him increasingly, and to become more like Him; and (2) to participate with Him in what He is doing in the world.”

Plans, lists, agendas—that’s how I stay focused!

Honestly, it’s not easy for me to understand how people work without an agenda, and yet Grace Thornton challenged me at our Christian Women’s Leadership Luncheon last month to lead differently.

History Speaks - Do we care enough to listen?

Deuteronomy reminds us that we need to be diligent in teaching our children and grandchildren to remember the past and to learn from it.
