my heart aches for sisters more than anything
it aches for women helping women
like flowers ache for spring

Rise Up, O Woman of God

Rise Up, O Woman of God
In what He has given you,
The things God has laid on your heart,
Rise up, go forth, and do
Unlock what God has placed within,
The potential you have inside
The world is waiting for your release
To expand your wings and fly
Arise in your God-given gifts
For this is your finest hour
Arise in the Lord’s holy might,
Ignited and empowered
For God is calling you to come forth
To impact this world for Him,
Don’t hold back or limit yourself
Let His power arise within
And take His message to the world
To those that have lost their way,
For you can surely make a difference
If you’d hear His voice and obey
You shall be strengthened in the Lord
As you begin to arise,
Conquering those doubts that pull you down
And believe who you are in Christ
For you shall surely be transformed
As, in you, God increases more
And become a woman of true excellence
Bringing honor to her Lord.
—M.S. Lowndes

Help Them Through Their Season of Loss

Father, I pray for (name one or more) and others in my circle of family and friends who are grieving… They’re hurting for many reasons, and I ask You to help them through this season of loss. I reach out to You, the Father of compassion and the Source of every comfort, asking You to touch them with Your unfailing love and kindness. Be their God who comforts them as they’re going
through their struggles, and bring them through the tough things ahead. Come alongside them in their pain, and strengthen them so they’ll one day be able to help others who face the same struggles.
– Wilber Baxter, 1957

Comforting Women With Breast Cancer


Father, for the strength you have given me, I thank you. For the health you have blessed me with, I thank you. For the women who are going through breast cancer and their families, I ask you to strengthen and to heal as you see fit. Lord, we know you want us to be in good health and to prosper. Lord, use us to do the work you have for us to do. For we know time is getting short on this earth. Lord, be with every woman who is sick and encourage them as only you can. I know how faithful you are. You have shown yourself to be everything you say you are in your Holy Word. I praise you, for you made this body, and you can heal this body. In Jesus’ Name I pray.

Women’s History Month

Just in case you’ve been so busy that you’ve managed to avoid all of social media for the past month, I’ll let you know that it’s currently women’s history month. This month is a time for us to all intentionally look at the achievements and hardships women have made and faced. And as many of you probably know, I love giving shout-outs to incredible women in history.

Hopefully, in the future, we won’t need a Women’s History Month—hopefully soon all history will be women’s history. Hopefully we won’t shut down or push down women, hopefully the achievements of women—those that have been taken credit for by others, or those that have just been ignored—will no longer need to be dug out of the ground in order for people to know what they are.

For now, though, I think we can all stand together and help each other out—help each other up. Because though all of us come from different backgrounds, we all have one thing in common: we’re all strong, courageous, and capable of anything we set our minds to. We’re all women.
