Saying Good-bye

It is our final day of broadcast of Women in the Word. 4 years ago, God began a journey in Pam, Rebecca and Sarah's lives to share God's Word with other women on the radio through WCTS. We began our study in Titus 2:1-5 in January 2009 and then moved on to 1 Corinthians 13. In the second year God brought to us Karen, Crystal, and Gloria Ormiston (now Burns!) and we studied in 1, 2 & 3 John.  Meredith joined the ministry and we studied in the book of Ruth and then Ecclesiastes in our 3rd year. We also began our study of women in the book of Luke and during this time God brought to us several more ladies to join our team: Jackie, Gloria Sperry, Lydia and Katlyn.  We spent 2012 studying the women in Luke as well as how God used women in the early church in the book of Acts. Throughout these years, Todd faithfully met with us to record for the ladies and we appreciate his ministry to us!  And now that this final broadcast is here, we want to praise our Heavenly Father for His plan and purpose of using Women in the Word in the lives of many women and for His goodness in providing many who supported the program along the way.  We pray that you'll continue to be a woman of God's word. 
~Walk with the Lord and be a blessing!~

Finishing Acts In Our Final Week

Today we begin to wrap up our study in the book of Acts. It has truly been an incredible study and we are ever so thankful for all of you who listened and studied along with us!  We also are sharing at this time that this week will be our last week to air on WCTS Radio. We are filled with mixed emotions about God's direction in closing this ministry, but we are confident that God is working out His plan for all of us.  We certainly appreciate your support and prayer for this ministry.  We'll spend a few days wrapping up our study in Acts and as we conclude this week, we'll have Rebecca, Sarah & Pam on air to share some personal thoughts and memories about being part of Women in the Word.  
Thanks for listening!

Dangerous Friends

Your junior high son has started a new school year and with that has made a few new
friends. His attitude has become more rebellious, he is dressing more “worldly”, and he
doesn’t seem to care about his schoolwork but is rather focused on weekends and time with
his new friends. He had made a profession of salvation when he was 8. You and your husband
sit down with him one night to talk to him about your concerns about the influence of his new

* How should you approach your son? What are some responses to avoid?

* What questions could you ask to gather more information about his friends and
priorities at school?

Making Time

Do you show interest in the topics of Jesus Christ and salvation or what do you spend more time listening to and talking about?
We'll be discussing this question today on Women in the Word. What are some ways that you make time to spend with God and to learn about Him? We'd love to hear your ideas!

Today we continue to look at Drusilla's life in regard to Paul's challenge to her and to Felix. Acts 24:25 tells us "[Paul] reasoned about righteousness, and self-control, and the coming judgement." As Christians, we know that we can strive to practice self-control in our own lives in all things. Do you implement self-control in each aspect of your life? Whether it's eating, time management, worldly lusts, or speech, we are called to a life of self-control. Take time today to see what areas of your life can be more controlled and join us as we share some biblical truths and practical ideas!

A Good Question

“Dad, how come none of our neighbors go to church?” five-year-old Tom asked as his family pulled into their driveway after returning from church. “Don’t they know that they are supposed to?”
“Well, son, they have chosen not to go. They think they have better things to do with their time,” Tom’s Dad replied.
“Do you think they even know about God? Do you think anyone has told them about Him?” Tom continued to ask.
Tom’s parents felt a bit awkward at Tom’s probing questions and tried to ignore them. They had lived next to some of their neighbors for ten years without ever telling them about God.

  • Evaluate the Dad’s first response. Was this response accurate?
  • How should Tom’s parents respond to his questions?
  •  How can Tom’s family begin to take steps to tell their neighbors about God?
  • Are there relationships in our own lives where we have failed to share the Gospel? What should the next step be to share Christ in these relationships?
