Growing In Christ

Attracting People to Christ: Your Signature Scent

Smells affect us in different ways. In our little neighborhood, a steak grilling at the neighbor’s house makes us want to invite ourselves to dinner. The connection between memory and our sense of smell allows us to associate places and events with different scents. I like the smell of cinnamon at Christmas and watermelon in the summer, but there are certain smells that trigger bad memories and even danger, such as the smell associated with natural gas.

Letting Go of Your Agenda and Leading with God’s

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. When we practice effective Christian leadership qualities of faith in God, we walk with Him through difficult times, and we accept God’s agenda.

History Speaks - Do we care enough to listen?

Last week’s disturbing events in Charlottesville shake us, and yet history shows that time will pass and little will be learned. Christian women leaders change that history when we passionately inspire another generation to love God and to love our neighbors.

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