When You Go Through Deep Waters

Overcomer Deep waters

I’ve been blogging for over 6 years and the emails never stop.  I love hearing from you all so very much and I read every. single. one. (I do not have an assistant ) but I am not able to answer every. single. one. I love reading your stories and meeting you via email but some of your stories – break my heart and some of your questions go much deeper than I could ever answer.  You see, I have a Bible degree – so I can answer your Bible questions – but many of your questions are more like […]

Do Not Be Discouraged When You Feel Judged

I am still on my blogging break but I am in Dallas, Texas this morning at a Women in Ministry Summit with Kay Arthur (author of over 100 Bible Studies!) and Logos Bible Software. I had the opportunity to sit next to Kay Arthur and ask her many questions during breakfast yesterday. My mother has led her Precept Bible Studies for over 35 years. I am a product of Kay discipling my mother and my mother discipling me. So this was truly a joy to meet Kay, at the age of 80, in real life. I was also trained on […]

So Excited To Share Something New With You!

faith focused wives banner

Here at Women Living Well, we discuss lots of topics.  We discuss theology, marriage, parenting, homemaking, homeschooling, my daily life, recipes and other odds and ends.  Do you know what the number one topic is that I get the most email questions about? Marriage. I believe that the foundation of the family is under attack.  Many of us come from broken hearts, broken homes, broken pasts and let’s just face it – even if we come from a solid Christian home – we are sinners and we married a sinner and that makes marriage hard. The culture has made it […]

New Series Announcement: Truth in Love

Truth in Love New Series

  I have been blogging now for nearly 6 years. This series is born out of what I’m experiencing within my blogging community.  During these years of blogging, I have watched as Evangelical bloggers have splintered over their liberal and conservative views.  I have also watched as some have been quite brave and bold in their stance – to the point of being mean.  This has made the blogging world less friendly than you might know.  You might see pictures from our conferences where we are hugging and smiling and sharing platforms – uniting around the gospel – but there […]
