WORTHY OF THE CALLING

Are you looking for a Bible study to join? I want to share an incredible study on the book of Ephesians that you are going to love. My sweet friend Sarah Koontz just launched a 31 day study covering the entire book of Ephesians called Worthy of the Calling.


In Worthy of the Calling, Sarah invites us on a journey as we learn about our identity in Christ and the spiritual wealth we have access to as daughters of God. She helps us discover that God has provided all we need to walk worthy of the calling we have received.

Too busy to do a study? Sarah totally gets it! This study was crafted with busy women in mind and can easily be completed on your mobile device or computer and at your own pace.

Here are 5 quick facts about the Worthy of the Calling Study:
▪It’s a FREE email based online Bible study.
▪It takes just 10-15 minutes per day to complete.
▪It follows a five days on, two days off format.
▪It covers the whole book of Ephesians.

▪It includes 5 free digital gifts from her Creative Partners.

Worthy of the Calling is easy to follow and understand yet digs deep into the Word. Join Sarah and I as well as more than a thousand women all across the world as we learn that we are Worthy of the Calling.

FREE OF ME

We live in a very me centered world. Get what I want. Do what I want. Be who I want. It's all about me, me, me.

There is another side of this me centered world, the side I personally am on. I am a very shy person. I love to be around people, yet I am so shy that I rarely start a conversation and sometimes don't even contribute to one. The thought of a group of people looking at my just makes my heart speed up. When God called me to be a children's pastor, I questioned Him. When He called me to lead a women's ministry in my church, I thought He picked the wrong girl. Even today as I type this, I received an invitation to speak at a woman's event in January. My heart started racing as I read the email. Then I read 250 women and my heart stopped.

How is this me centered? Because I am so focused on me. What if I mess up? What if I say something stupid or pronounce a word wrong? What if I trip and fall?What if I pass out? I get so focused on me messing up or looking like a fool that I don't leave room for God to do His work.

In her new book Free of Me, Sharon Miller says, "All those messages I had been hearing -about how special I was and how God had a perfect plan for me- I was taking them and breaking them a little. I was turning the Bible into a book about me. I was turning God into a God about me. My eyes were focused on me. I had made God into a mirror, and although the image was a positive one -and a truthful one- I was still living for myself. Instead of running toward the prize of Christ, I was bumping into the wall of my own reflection."


This life isn't about us. It's not about if we succeed or fail. It's not about if we are lifted high, recognized, get the book deal, get asked to speak at an event, or are honored in any way. It's not about if we fall flat on our face in front of hundreds of people, walk out of the bathroom with toilet paper stuck to the bottom of our shoe, or mispronounce a word. It's only about God. This life, it's about Him.

Sharon goes on to say, "I was treating God and the Bible as if they were all about me, which made my faith small and powerless. I think a lot of us make the same mistake, but we are by no means the first."

If you are struggling with this me condition, either side of the coin, I encourage you to pick up Free of Me. Sharon invites us to a bigger Jesus centered vision, a vision that doesn't limit us, but restores our freedom and inspires us to live for more. Every page will inspire and challenge you as you finally become free of yourself and learn to live a Christ centered life.

Free of Me is available now. Pick up your copy HERE.

FIERCEHEARTED

Do you ever feel like are just not living up to your full potential?  Like you aren't brave? Like you are stuck in the every day mundane? Do you wan to do more? Be more?

Friend, I am right there with you. I think all women feel this from time to time. Whether we are stay at home moms living day in and day out with piles of laundry and wet diapers or clocking hours outside the home. Even the most beloved of jobs causes us pause and question once in a blue moon. In her brand new book Fierce Hearted, Holley Gerth says, "Let's see the divine in the ordinary, the big in the small, the meaningful in the mundane, the holy in all things humble."



In each chapter of Fierce Hearted, Holley shares real stories of her life and the lessons she's learned. She teaches us to live and love and walk away from fear. Holley shares so transparently and down to earth, it feels like you are having a real conversation with a good friend over coffee. She understands it all, from a miscarriage to struggles with a friend to failures.





Fierce Hearted is a book every woman should read and refer to often. Holley truly teaches us to live fully and love bravely. If you are ready to be a Fierce Hearted woman, pick up your copy today, click HERE.
