Women at War

I was a child growing up during the war when our county in the southeastern corner of England, only 21 miles from France, became known as “bomb alley.” The first German raid on London took place around 4:00 p.m. on September 7, 1940. The German Luftwaffe made a blitzkrieg attack, sending 348 bombers escorted by 617 fighters over the Channel from France. London’s...

The Billboard

The enormous billboard loomed above me as I sat in late-afternoon city traffic. It featured a scantily-clad woman with dark red lipstick and air-brushed-to-perfection curves. I stared at it transfixed. I’m sure she was meant to be selling some sort of perfume or lingerie. It’s hard to remember because what she was really selling was far more destructive. I...

Protect Your Child’s Gender Identity

  1. 16th September 2015
  2. Janth B. English

Our Western society has become very confused about something very basic—the male and female genders. It has become fashionable to believe that children are not really born either male or female, but that they should “choose” whether to be male or female. It seems the world has gone mad and thrown out thousands of years of basic knowledge about men, women, and...

Life's Legacy

Recently, many of us shared in the grief at the tragic accidental death of a much-loved young woman during her service at a Church-sponsored summer camp. In her short lifetime, she touched the lives both of those who knew her and of those who only came to know her after her death.

Listening

In the popular country song, “Whatever You Say” by Martina McBride, the lyrics include a line that says, “I know you can hear me, but I don’t think you’re listening.” This verse is part of a song that talks about someone who just wants to be heard and listened to. These lines in the songlyrics, along with the others that follow, resonate with women of all types...

One for All

  2. Michelle Bueno

friends reaching out to include The Musketeers lived by the famous motto: “All for one, and one for all!” It embodied their everyday actions. What is our motto as Christian women? What is the standard by which we live our lives? Can we apply “all for one, one for all?” Have any of us experienced the feeling of being the last one chosen for the team, of consistently not being included in...

In This Season

Recently I was talking with another young woman who is a good friend about how quickly time seems to pass. We laughed and joked about how we are getting “older,” although many others that are older than us would doubtless remind us that we are still “so young.” We were discussing all of the things that have happened in our lives since college, where we are in...

Decisions, Decisions…

Taking care of a child has never been simple, but I think most would agree that the world we are raising our children in is a very confusing and complicated one. Everyone has an opinion on what a child should eat (breast milk or formula?

Moving Towards Health

  2. Julia Lundgren

Surrounded by commercials and advertisements of models with perfect figures, magazines, workout DVDs, and fad diets, everywhere we look it seems like we are pressured to feel like we need to be the “perfect” woman. While looking like a supermodel is unrealistic, we can all do things to keep ourselves healthy and strong. We know as Christians that “man looks at...

Fumbling to Fitly Spoken Words

  1. 25th February 2015
  2. Brenda Fulford

You have been waiting in line for such a long time and rehearsed your words. You have admired this woman from a distance, wondering how she has coped with so much sorrow and pain. In your heart you think, “You are such a strong person. I don’t know how you do it. If it were me, I’d just give up and die.” The line moves a bit, words are spoken by those who came...
