What are you giving up for Lent?

What are you giving up for Lent?

Godly Woman 911 Fasting

“Lent is nearing soon, what are you giving up for Lent?” asked my Aunt. Pausing at my doorstep, my hands went straight to my hips, and I huffed, “I don’t know. I am struggling with this,” shaking my head, I started walking through the door. Time for work.

I was struggling with figuring out what to do for Lent. And I wasn’t sure why. My first thought was that I was going to stop eating bread during Lent. But I couldn’t find any peace with that decision.

The Greatest Love Story

Once Upon a Time, there was a ….

Is that not how all the great love stories start? Sometimes it feels that way. Rushing to finish my Saturday chores, I paused to answer a call from a friend. To be honest, I didn’t mean to answer the phone. I needed to get all the items on my list checked off.

Have you heard?

Have you heard?

Have you heard? There is so much happening in the world around us and sometimes it is so easy to turn a blind eye. I, unfortunately, am someone that doesn’t listen to news daily, but something caught my attention which prompted me to ask these questions:

What is happening in Australia? Why is Australia on fire? Are the fires in Australia still burning?

This Christmas

This Christmas Message

In Church on Sunday, our Pastor told us a story:

“In a Sunday School class, a teacher stated to her students, “Who can tell me what Christmas means?”. The kids provided a few answers, “Santa Claus, presents, snow, lots of food, Jesus.”

“That is right,” said the teacher. “Let’s talk a little bit about the birth of Jesus.” Before she could proceed, an eight-year-old girl exclaimed, “He was born again!”

Christmas Giveaway: The Sexually Confident Wife

Godly Woman 911 Christmas Giveaway

Christmas Giveaway: The Sexually Confident Wife

As I am about to write the introduction of this, I am laughing to myself. There is a sense of shyness, fear, awkwardness and even embarrassment for me on this topic. So I laugh, because this is exactly what Author Shannon Ethridge is trying to encourage us that we don’t have to feel on this topic.

This book is encouraged for married women or ladies about to be married. Let me introduce you to the amazing Shannon Ethridge, who provided us with a signed copy of her book, The Sexually Confident Wife: Connecting with your husband mind, body, heart, spirit.

As outlined on Amazon,

Maximize the sexual and emotional potential in your marriage! With down-to-earth wisdom based on the experiences of the thousands of women she’s counseled, Shannon Ethridge–author of the million-plus-selling Every Woman’s Battle series–shows women how to create the healthy, exhilarating sex lives they (and their husbands) desire.

Every woman deserves to enjoy great sex with her husband, without inhibition or shame. But many wives live with the burden of self-doubt or feel mystified about what men really want in bed. Others wrestle with memories of sexual abuse or neglect, guilt over past intimate relationships, or negative feelings about their own bodies. Maybe you’ve been thinking you were alone in your struggle to discover sexual fulfillment. Think again:

only 8 percent of married women consider their sex life “very hot”
21 percent call their sex life “routine and boring”
Another 21 percent ask, “What sex life?”

These sorry statistics don’t have to be your case, as Shannon Ethridge readily explains with arresting warmth and honesty. Brimming with confidence-boosting techniques and inspiring personal stories of rejuvenated relationships, The Sexually Confident Wife opens a new world of passion for every couple, helping women to connect with their men on every level–physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual–enabling them to fully enjoy the ultimate, enduring union that marriage can be.
