WELCOME! We are so
glad you are here!

Most women don’t have supportive Christian women in their lives mentoring them.

We spur women on with the Word of God so that we can approach the Bible with confidence, share Jesus with grace, and speak chatter that matters in a noisy world.

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on…” Hebrews 10:24

Get Rich Quick!

What would you do if you won the lottery? If you were suddenly rich beyond your wildest dreams? Most of us have considered this scenario before. I know what I would do! Pay off all my debts, invest for the future, buy a nice home for my family, take care of my extended family. Then I could take any extra and go on some wild vacations! I could afford a fantastic wardrobe. And just so I'm not greedy, think of all I could donate! I could give millions to my church, schools I've attended, charities I support. I could adopt some children in need and provide many a village in Africa with a well for drinking water. Oh, if only I were rich...

I'm definitely NOT rich though. I mean just look at my debts:

1. Student loans. 2. Car loan. 3. Hospital bills. 4. A whole lotta sin.

Even if I get those student loans, that car loan, and those hospital bills paid off, I will NEVER repay the debt I owe to God for my sin. I am the poorest person alive, heading straight to debtors prison aka HELL.

Well, wait a second now. Those are my debts. Let's list my assets:

  • I Have a bazillion dollars
  • I live in multi million dollar mansion
  • I have an impressive jewelry collection
  • I have a garage filled with seven expensive cars
  • Have you seen my pool? How about the hot tub?
  • Check out my stock portfolio!

Yeah...just kidding. Wishful thinking. ;)

In reality:

  • I get sound sleep in a comfortable bed every night.
  • My home has devices designed to keep me warm when it is cold and cool when it is hot (when I’m not feeling too cheap to run them!)
  • I eat when I am hungry.
  • I have a few “glowing rectangles” designed solely for entertainment and communication.
  • When I really need or desire something, I have the resources to put in some elbow grease and work toward a goal.
  • My home is free of bed bugs, fleas, pests, and my family free of debilitating disease.
  • I have extra possessions to donate to Goodwill.
  • My husband and I are able to take time off work if need be and do so even for pleasure on occasion.
  • My city has a sewage system that whisks away undesirable waste and treats it.
  • Little by little, I am paying off $45,000 in student loan debts.
  • I am able to put a tiny bit of money into savings occasionally.
  • I am able to say, “we are out of milk, bread, and eggs, could you stop by the store on your way home from work and pick some up?”
  • If I need a doctor, I can see one within days.
  • If I am critically ill or injured, I can call an ambulance to pick me up within minutes.
  • The phrase “treating myself” has entered my vocabulary.
  • I have access to clean drinking water.
  • I have a beautiful family.
  • I have a beautiful church family.
  • I have friends who care about me.
  • I have one great reliable little car that seats five people--and exactly five people in my family! Who needs a van?
  • Globally, I am one of the richest people on earth.*

Most importantly: as a daughter of God, I am the heir to a home in HEAVEN. I have a savior who died for me and abolished the sin I could never get rid of on my own and because of that I will live in His heavenly kingdom some day. What earthly mansion could top that?

When I compare those debts to those assets, I am pretty stinking rich!

Why are you rich? Do you take your riches for granted? Is there a financial struggle you are going through that we can uplift to God for you?

 

*(Wondering if you are too? This website allows you to type in your income and see where you fall globally. You might be surprised! I do not know if they are a trusted donation source, however, so I would not donate anything through their site without researching who they are first. As always, be smart with your personal and financial information on the internet).
