Simplify Your Life

Indecision is a miserable state to be in and certainly is not a fruit of the simple life. Simplicity prays, seeks wisdom and decides. It doesn’t waffle. It sticks with the decision it made unless there is a very good reason to change it. The apostle James said the double-minded man is unstable in all his ways and will not receive anything he asks from the Lord.

How can God give us anything if we can never make up our minds concerning what we want?

Inevitably, our journeys through life bring us to many unavoidable decisions, and we will always get into trouble if we make them emotionally or according to what we think or want. God wants us to make wise decisions. I believe having wisdom is choosing to do now what we will be happy with later. read more

Heal Us With Your Power

There are times God works through medical means. But sometimes He works alone.

Have you recently received a bad report from a medical test? Has a loved one just suffered a serious injury? The stunning blow from such news can instantly turn your world upside down.

The good news is God still heals today—in a variety of ways. read more

Listening to the Spirit

We can do powerful things through Christ, but sometimes the Holy Spirit asks us to do things we're not comfortable with. Watch as Beth Moore shares a humorous story of how the Lord instructed her to brush an elderly gentleman's hair in a crowded airport—and what the incident taught her.

Flag with Bible

Carry the Banner

Many Christians don’t sense the need to get involved in the political process. But your opinions matter, and your voice needs to be heard.

We are living in an unprecedented period of our nation's history. Anyone with spiritual discernment would have to say that we are on the cusp of a national crisis.

Clearly, it is time for those with true godly wisdom to stand up, reclaim their voices and bring a resolve to the life or death decisions of our beloved America (see Prov. 8). read more

God's Plan for America

ALTHOUGH ANTI-CHRISTIAN SENTIMENT IS INCREASING, GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN US. BUT OUR NATION MUST ALTER ITS COURSE IF WE ARE TO FULFILL OUR DIVINE PURPOSE.

Anyone who reads the paper, listens to the news, watches television or goes to the movies with regularity can't help but be aware of the rising tide of anti-Christian sentiment in America. It is apparent in almost every aspect of our culture, including our educational system. read more

A Woman's Right to Preach

How is it that women would venture to preach when female ministry is forbidden in the Word of God?

This is a serious objection to consider and, if capable of substantiation, would receive my immediate and cheerful acquiescence; but I think I can show, by a fair and consistent interpretation, that the very opposite view is the truth—that the public ministry of women is absolutely enjoined by both precept and example in the Word of God. read more

Eternal Significance

Have you ever felt that everyone other than you was doing something significant? That feeling can come even after reading something meant to be uplifting—such as an article in SpiritLed Woman! But who sets the standard for what is significant?

Often we assess significance using the world's standards—public visibility, wealth, power, influence. However, in God's kingdom values are reversed. Outward manifestations of importance are not the true measure of success. What is eternal—what we don't see—matters most.

God has an awesome plan for women today. This plan includes us all, not just those in public ministry. God is building an army, and He looks past natural attributes such as gender or circumstances to fill up the ranks. read more

Heart-Healthy Living

HEART DISEASE IS A GREATER THREAT TO WOMEN THAN BREAST CANCER. WHAT CAN YOU DO TO LOWER YOUR RISKS?

Most women I meet, if asked about their greatest health concern, would probably name breast cancer as the malady they most fear. But though breast cancer might generate a more passionate reaction than heart disease, the truth of the matter is this: More women in the United States die each year from heart disease than from all cancers combined.

One out of five women in this country has some form of cardiovascular disease. It is the leading cause of death in American women, claiming more than half a million lives annually. read more
