Tomorrow, I’ll be joining Chris Adams on LifeWay’s very first live webcast for women in leadership. Chris is the senior lead women’s ministry specialist in LifeWay’s church resources division. But more than that, she’s also a dear friend.
Some women are caught in a pattern of revolving door relationships. That was the problem of the Wild Thing of Proverbs 7. She just couldn’t seem to make relationships work. One man after another passed through her heart and bed. In this book blog, you’ll see that the inability to sustain a relationship is often [...]
Women’s Lib. Feminism. And now, a generation of Girls Gone Wild. But the happiness that women desperately seek remains an elusive goal. Studies show that they are more dissatisfied than ever before. Next Tuesday, I will be joining host Chris Adams LIVE on the LifeWay Women’s Video Livestream Webcast to discuss the ministry challenges and [...]
Calling all Women’s Leaders! Do you want to know how to lead “in the Moment”? In this 60-minute message, which I delivered at the 2009 LifeWay Women’s Leaders’ National Forum in Nashville last November, I challenged leaders to “Seize the Moment” in order to bring women to a point of radical commitment to the gospel, [...]
Have you ever seen someone go wrong because he or she hung out with the wrong friend? That’s what happened to the young man in the Proverbs 7 story. The Wild Thing exerted a negative influence on him. When he hung out with her, his standards went right out the window. The Bible says that [...]
She was a sweet-talkin’ woman. She knew how to turn on the charm, butter him up, and get him to do her bidding. The way a woman uses words is another point of contrast between a wild and a wise woman. In this book blog, you’ll find out that using sweet talk is a strategy [...]
When it comes to inner purity, our thought-lives could be compared to a playground. One moment we climb the ladder toward victory and the next we’re nudged over the edge and can’t stop the downward spiral until we’ve fallen back where we started.
What happens if you cross your heart with your right hand, and cross your fingers with your left? Do you still have to keep your promise? What if you’re really mad at the person with whom you’ve made the agreement? Can you get out of it then? The Wild Thing of Proverbs 7 thought so. [...]
The more I study the lives of great Christian women, the more I recognize that our American culture (even the Christian culture) so often convinces us that this life is all about us rather than being all about Jesus Christ. It is my desire, by God’s grace, to make all of my decisions, choices and attitudes based on the question, “How can I honor and glorify my King in this moment?”
The underlying message of most ad campaigns is, “Indulge. You deserve it!” The Wild Thing would agree. She feels entitled to indulge in all sorts of pleasures… visits to the spa, beauty treatments, splurging on the sexy red dress and that pricey, exotic fragrance. And if she decides to indulge in a night of forbidden [...]
What does it mean for large sectors of our society to become virtual matriarchies? How do we prepare the church to deal with such a world while maintaining biblical models of manhood and womanhood? …The real issue here is not the end of men, but the disappearance of manhood.
Calling all shopaholics… Is the pride-and-joy item in your closet a pair of Manolo Blahniks? Do you like to have a look at the label and see designer names like Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Armani, or Versace? If so, you may have a lot in common with the woman of Proverbs 7. She had impeccable [...]
