"My "mission" in Life...

...is NOT to make you a Calvinist!" I've said this to countless friends and acquaintances over the years, and I mean it!

But, my "mission" is to write on topics that often get shuffled to the "back burner" by most Christian women in our busy world.

I get great pleasure out of discussing topics that your average woman in the church rarely considers, and sometimes doesn't even know how to pronounce! :-)

All I want to do is encourage Christian women to really wrestle with theological issues--cause you most certainly ARE capable of it. Not for the "sport" of it, but for the sanctification it encourages--equipping you to better serve your Saviour, your husband, your family, and your church!

So, if you should begin to consider, understand and embrace the same theology that I've spent so many years considering and refining in my own mind (by God's grace through His Holy Spirit) you just might be surprised at how much beauty you come to see in the TULIP! :-)

Ah! A woman after my own heart!

Reminds me of a quote from Machen:

"After listening to modern tirades against the great creeds of the Church, one receives a shock when one turns to the Westminster Confession. . .and discovers that in so doing, one has turned from shallow modern phrases to a "dead orthodoxy" that is pulsating with life in every word. In such orthodoxy there is life enough to set the whole world aglow with Christian love."

If I haven't used it yet (and I suspect I have) I may use that one for my quote of the week this week!!

In my teaching, I continually challenge the women to be thinking women thinking about the deep and eternal truths of God--there is no greater treasure. Ditto the above--keep writing!

Hello all! Just want you to know that it's been a very busy weekend--dinner company two out of three days and misc. other distractions!!

I do want to thank you for your encouragement and comments--thank you, thank you, thank you... Perhaps I'll be able to respond more specifically (Avery) in the next day or two! :-)
