Have you ever wondered if you’re in God’s will?  How does God lead? The answer is simple—one step at a time. Psalm 37:23 says that “the steps of a good man (woman) are ordered by the Lord.” If we know and love the Lord and truly put Him first in all we do, then He [...]

Pink dress. Pink shoes. White stockings. Cute little girls. Cute little girls throw themselves in their fathers’ big arms and life is free from worries. Someone is going to take care of them. Someone is going to feed them. Someone is going to carry them on his broad shoulders. That’s what I felt when I [...]

Take up the challenge: Be a woman of influence

Women have this intrinsic ability to influence.  We see it in our roles as wives and mothers, and in our friendships. We see this influence in the life of Timothy, where his mother, Eunice, and grandmother, Lois, communicated their faith to him so that he became a valuable member of the Apostle Paul’s team. A [...]

Announcing ‘Write Uncaged’

We're thrilled to be hosting a conference on writing and blogging! (And, no, you don't have to be a writer to attend.) Last year an editor told us that she regularly receives manuscripts and when she asks the would-be authors what their platform is, they don’t have a clue what she’s talking about. This got [...]

Dear Friends, Welcome to Beauty for Ashes Women’s Conference 2012! I pray that you will be blessed by God this weekend in every way and that He will do ‘superabundantly, far over and above all that you dare ask or think—infinitely beyond your highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.’  Ephesians 3:20 (The Amplified Bible).

Some people have sight, but Jennifer Rothschild has vision. Many of Jennifer’s life lessons have been learned . . . in the dark. But that didn't come until she went blind at age 15 from a rare, degenerative eye disease called retinitis pigmentosis. That was more than 30 years ago, and, since then, Jennifer has reached [...]

“Lord, here I am, available to do  your work. Use me Lord.” At the 2007 Beauty for Ashes Women’s Conference, Priscilla Shirer spoke on “He Speaks to Me.” This really touched me as I had a misconception of how one can be used in God’s kingdom. I remember thinking that she was the most amazing [...]
