In recent times many women who speak truth are told they need to be silent, and not "criticize" anointed teachers who "occasionally" teach something opposite of what Scripture says.

We do it be...

And it tells us that women are not to be teaching other women anythi...

    It can be so easy to get discouraged by the bad news around us today, the rottenness of sin, the disappointment of loved ones who let us down. These past several years have shown us a world that is growing increasingly dark.  But God offers hope through the promises of His Truth!

    What does God's Word have to say about being single? A lot! A Christian woman who is single, regardless of whether she never married, has been divorced, is widowed, etc., can honor God in her daily life just as any married woman can. Unfortunately many single church members say they are treated as second-class citizens by their church families.
