When us ladies get together there are many conversations happening at once. We sound like hens clucking! We admit there are interruptions, side tangents, and outbursts of laughter but our talk is not in vain. It is fulfilling a purpose.
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
- Hebrews 10:23-25
Life isn't perfect but God is. Through the ups and downs of life we remind each other who God is and what is promised to us through Jesus. Grace. Forgiveness. Eternity.
Holy Hen House is a place for women of all seasons to share the reason for the hope we have. We encourage not with empty talk or gossip but with Christian friendship, discernment from God’s Word, and if need be, tough love to steer each other back to God’s will.
Our purpose reflects Titus 2:3-5,
"… teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. "
So grab a cup of coffee and your favorite chair and draw inspiration from our adventures in thriving (or not!) in our families, homes, and communities. Let's work together to build each other up and to show others the love that Christ has shown us!
Holy Hen House was co-founded in 2012 by a house-hopping women’s Bible study. We felt a great need to be spurred on in our faith, marriages, parenting journeys, and to use our gifts in a creative way. When several of us were moving away, we decided to take our encouragement online to keep in touch. Turns out there were others looking for the same thing! Overtime, we have welcomed women that have gone before us and the next generation to join us in this writing space.
What began as a blog has grown into an online and in-person ministry. Each year we grow in leading Bible studies, speaking in public, planning events, and building a sisterhood that every woman needs.
Our Leadership Team ensures that God’s Word is the driving force behind our vision, content, events, resources, and all things that make Holy Hen House the ministry that it is!
