Chris August - Candy Wrap

Went to see Chris August tonight.  I really love his music.  One of the things I like about him, is his passion about God and the songs that he sings that glorify Him....but Chris also has a humorous side.  This song shows it.  I got a shirt that was made for this song...thought it would be great to wear to my Zumba class :)

Courageous Movie - The Resolution for Women

 So the book I'm beginning to go through for a study is "The Resolution for Women" by Priscilla Shirer.  I really like her writings because she really puts things into practical application.  I'm excited to go through this book, but also know from reading the introduction...that it's going to be a book that will challenge me to become the woman that God wants me to be. 

I'm so glad that Priscilla Shirer was the chosen writer of this book, because I have read other books of hers and she brings things to a level of understanding.  It's like she is talking to you instead of you reading what she has said.  I really think this is a book for any woman who wants to be challenged and who wants to become the woman of God.

There are 13 resolutions in the book.  They are as follows:
  1. I DO SOLEMNLY RESOLVE to embrace my current season of life and will maximize my time in it.  I will resist the urge to hurry through or circumvent any portion of my journey but will live with a spirit of contentment.
  2. I WILL CHAMPION God's model for womanhood in the face of a profeminist culture.  I will teach it to my daughters and encourage its support by my sons.
  3. I WILL ACCEPT and celebrate my uniqueness, and will esteem and encourage the distinctions I admire in others.
  4. I WILL LIVE as a woman answerable to God and faithfully committed to His Word.
  5. I WILL SEEK to devote the best of myself, my time, and my talents to the primary roles the Lord has entrusted to me in this phase of my life.
  6. I WILL BE a woman who is quick to listen and slow to speak.  I will care about the concerns of others and esteem them more highly than myself
  7. I WILL FORGIVE those who hav ewronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.
  8. I WILL NOT TOLERATE evil influences even in the most justifiable form, in my self or my home, but will embrace and encourage a life of purity.
  9. I WILL PURSUE justice, love mercy and extend compassion toward others.
  10. I WILL BE FAITHFUL to my husband and honor him in my conduct and conversation in order to bring glory to the name of the Lord.  I will aspire to be a suitable partner for him to help him reach his God-given potential.
  11. I WILL DEMONSTRATE to my children how to love God will all their hearts, minds, and strength, and will train them to respect authority and live responsibly.
  12. I WILL CULTIVATE a peacheful home where everyone can sense God's presence not only through acts of love and service but also through the pleasant and grateful attitude with which I perform them.
  13. I FULLY RESOLVE to make today's decisions with tomorrow's impact in mind.  I will consider my current choices in light of those who will come after me.
Pray for me as I begin this journey.
