Women’s Work

Quick Trip to the line- Sharlene SmithThis week’s links are for women and the people who want to encourage and appreciate them.

Three books may be of interest to you if you are struggling to find contentment, value and purpose in the everyday of your life. Here are links to reviews and interviews with the authors:

Every woman’s work is sacred- even if it takes place in a board room. Read more from Susan DiMeckle and Working Women of the Bible: TImeless Mentors for Modern Women.

Finding joy isn’t in grand plans, but in little steps everyday. Read more about Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin.

Gloria Furman’s Glimpses of Grace: Treasuring the Gospel in Your Home reminds us that “bigger and better” isn’t what Jesus is actually calling us to. Read more in “Grace for the Not-Quite-Happy Homemaker.”

This post focuses on women who are in the workplace or at home and encourages them to consider how discipleship and faith in Jesus transforms their everyday.

The Dangers Within: Lust

Sculpture: Deadly SinsThe last of the Seven Deadly Sins for us to consider is lust.

Lust is a challenge for both men and women, as “Confessions of a Lustful Christian Woman” by Jonalyn Fincher illustrates.

Adam Holz offers some good thoughts on the role of the community in regards to dealing with this sin. Given our deep desire to keep our lustful thoughts private, we’d do well to listen.

GroundWork Media finishes up their series on the Seven Deadly Sins with this episode on lust.

And just in case you haven’t come across this online resource, be sure to check out XXX Church’s website for programs, resources, stories and much more to support men, women, teens, families, and churches through porn addiction recovery.

 

This post is for adults and provides resources and challenges that pertain to lust, sex, pornography, and our thoughts.
