“To forgive is to set a prisoner free, and then to find out the prisoner was you.” This quote by Lewis B. Smedes is far truer than some people can imagine. For those who have held on to unforgiveness for many years, the side-effects of it are toxic. Releasing unforgiveness and learning to embrace forgiveness of others and ourselves takes work but it’s a labor of love when you realize that you’re setting yourself free from the priso...

C.S. Lewis said, “To be Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you." Choosing Christ-like forgiveness doesn’t mean we have to die on a cross. In fact, we don’t have to do that to forgive others. Jesus did that for us. We were called to “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32)

Are you prepared for the storms in life? It’s sometimes easier and more satisfying to grab extra candles, stock up on shelf stable foods and fuel up the generator than it is to be spiritually, mentally, and emotionally prepared. Putting our hands on tangible things makes us feel prepared. But are you truly prepared for whatever might come your way if you’re not well rooted and grounded in faith?

What does it mean to be Christ-like? I researched this question and let me tell you, the answers I got were completely circular. “Christ-like means to mimic Christ”, “Christ-like means exemplifying Christ.” “It means having a Christ-like attitude.” “It means sharing Christ with others.” And those are only a few of the answers. I had to roll my eyes at some of the answers, laugh at others and just sigh in the end because very few ti...

Have you ever been duped? Tricked? Scammed? Led astray by someone you thought was good but turned out to be evil? The book of Matthew warns us about wolves in sheep clothing. That scripture is important for our journey with Jesus but also in our daily lives.

Like never before, we have a world that is crawling with hungry wolves. We also live in a world that believes the lie that “If it quacks like a duck, swims like a duck and walk...

In sharing the Word of God, do worry you might offend someone else? Or are you bold enough to just put THE truth out there with love and compassion and let it stand for itself? Do you hear people water it down or try to shove parts of it in other people’s faces, with good intentions but twisted meanings?

Matthew 24:10, 12 tells us that…”many shall be offended and shall betray one another and shall hate one another… And because evil...

I recently read a poem called, “Church is hard”. You may have seen it circulating online. The poem was written by Jacob Waldron. Excellent writing and SO on point. His writing sparked me to talk about why church is so hard and what the Bible says about church.

We have a road map to developing a healthy church in the book of Acts. In this episode we’re talking about how to make church NOT so hard and specifically about Acts 2:46-47,...

“The devil knows your name but calls you by your sin. God knows your sin but calls you by your name…” (Ricardo Sanchez)  You have a name and YOU ARE NOT YOUR SIN. That’s what we’re discussing in this week’s episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast. We’re also talking about the danger of name-calling; labels, twisting the Word of God AND making sure you know that you are not your sin. (And other people are not their sin either.)

There's a saying that goes, "Words are seeds. They do more than blow around. They land in our hearts and not on the ground. Be careful what you plant. Be careful what you say. You might have to eat what you planted one day." (unknown)  Do you know this to be true?

Are you feeling peaceful during the holiday hustle and bustle, shopping, cleaning, preparing, and cooking? Or do you feel chaos and craziness as your To Do list seems to get longer? 

Peace is an internal thing that can be had even when there is no peace in the external world around you. Nations and countries, religions and families, shoppers and employers may not be focused on peace but that doesn't mean you can't be.

The Bible says that if you resist the devil, he will flee. Do you believe that? Do you live your life like it’s true? Do you even believe in the devil and his evil ways?
