Revival of Titus 2 Women!
This has been a busy start to a new year. We just watched the Inauguration of our 45th president of the United States, and regardless which side of the political aisle you're on, things are going to change in our country. I look forward to a return to religious freedoms that were quickly diminishing. Already, with the Inauguration going on record as having more prayer and Scripture than any other Inauguration in history , we're seeing that welcome change.

President Donald Trump wrote his own speech and referenced God as our Protector, Creator, and said: "The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity! When America is united, America is unstoppable."

And he is right. We need to be those agents of peace and unity. On many issues, we can agree to disagree. However, we can never compromise, participate in, or support anything contrary to biblical Christianity. Sadly, the day after the Inauguration, many women participated in a march with speakers who railed profanity, disunity, support of abortion, and many carried obscene signs, some even denouncing God and Jesus Christ. You can read more of my thoughts on the march in this blog: Some Women Are Still Like Eve: Listening to the Serpent.

But here is what I want you to hear starting this new year: 2017 must be a year of revival of Titus 2 women, and you and I need to lead the revival! Many women attending that crude and rude march took their daughters to hear the vile language and rebellious embarrassing speeches from actors and politicians. That's not how we train young godly women. Madonna wanting to bomb the White House and screaming four-letter curses, Ashley Judd angrily ranting about nasty women, are not role models for our daughters. 

Many in the next generation are believing the lies of the liberal media at face value, not bothering to check if they're true. They laugh at the concept of God, use filthy language, and think sex is their "right" of passage into womanhood. If you get pregnant, go to Planned Parenthood for a free abortion. That's what the world is telling them. That's what the march said is their "right."

This is not political; it's spiritual! We must mentor them against these lies. Show them how to become Titus 2 women. NOW! Not tomorrow. Not next month. Not next year. Now! They need to know that Christian women are not self-centered or vulgar; we serve others and are gentle, kind, and self-controlled. We don't have recreational sex and kill inconvenient babies. We value our bodies as sacred, pure, and holy, and value the sanctity of life. We're willing to wait sexually for the husband God has planned for us because we understand we're that special to God.

We need to talk about virginity again! The significance of wearing white on your wedding day. And no matter what man says, God, says He created us male and female and marriage is only between a male and female. That's not homophobic, a word made up by the world, that's biblical!

A Titus 2 revival and counter-movement must raise up in our churches. If you don't already have a Titus 2 Mentoring Ministry in your church, please start one! Many will testify that the Woman to Woman Mentoring Ministry Resources take you step by step. I wrote them so you wouldn't have to waste time figuring things out on your own, but use whatever resources work for you, just start one. Mentor your family, especially your daughters. Reach out to new believers or seeker friends, family, church members. Or if you're that woman needing a mentor, keep asking a spiritually older woman to meet, until you find one who agrees to mentor you.

There are so many resources available for individual mentoring. I've also written books to help as you think about mentoring or connecting in a spiritual relationship or Bible study. The one I would practically beg you to read is Forsaken God? Remember the Goodness of God Our Culture Has Forgotten. It's not a dry book! Read the reviews on Amazon.  It has practical ways for you to remember God in your own life so you can start a revival in your life that spreads into your sphere of influence. I'm telling you God had me write it for this very time. I just didn't know it. Our world has Forsaken God. Our culture has turned its back on God. But I do believe we're going to see a revival. And let it begin with us!

I would love to hear a time when you had to be brave or God asked you to do something you couldn't do on your own power. Also, if you were "brave" enough to march for the opposite of the liberals' agenda in the "women's march," I want to hear your story.

               Mentoring Tip            
When you think Titus 2 think revival of virtue!       

 Oops! Ouch!
Not What I had planned! 

If you've read several of the blog posts above, you know I had an accident on Christmas where I fell and hit my head hard. While I was lying on the floor and we assessed the injury, I remember my daughter telling me that my three precious and scared grandchildren were upstairs praying. I did end up in ER where I had five staples put into my head. Ouch!

When I returned home, the grandkids greeted me with hugs and kisses, and they were so glad to see me smiling. While I was gone, they each had made me the sweetest colorful cards. Here are some of their comments:

8 yr-old Sienna: "I love you so much!" "I love you and I hope you are better by tomorrow. I love you!" "I want you better now!" (Each of these comments were encircled in hearts)

11 yr-old Katelyn: "I love you and I hope you get better soon! PS: Your reaction was way better than mine would be!"

11 yr-old Brandon: "We all hope you get well soon. We hope that you're ok and that you know we're here for you. We love you and hope you get well."

Such maturity from these sweet grandchildren, who reacted with such love and faith to a near tragedy. I am so blessed.

A Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community

A text from a friend. An urgent phone call from a family member. An announcement at church. Maybe even a share on social media or story from the news. Many needs surrounding us require prayer. Each request is valuable and worthy of time before the Father, but the sheer number of them can be overwhelming. In Pray A to Z: A Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community (Worthy Inspired),
author Amelia Rhodes helps readers topically organize their prayer requests and lay the burdens of their community at the feet of the Heavenly Father.

Pray A to Z is not an instruction book on the mechanics of prayer, but rather a guide to praying for one's community, born from your personal experiences. Where did the idea of praying from A to Z come from?
One day within the span of a few hours, I received phone calls and text messages from a number of friends who were all dealing with very heavy struggles. Each one asked me to pray for them. Of course, I said I would, but at that point I recognized how often I fail to follow through on praying long-term for people. As I prayed that day, I also asked God to help me with my prayer life. I realized how many people I knew were struggling with the same types of things - adoptions, cancer, marriages. The idea of praying by topic seemed natural, and then I decided to see if I could make an A to Z list of all the needs and struggles facing our communities today.
Why did you feel it important to include aspects of praise and adoration, rather than having only need-based topics?
The needs get heavy and overwhelming. I found that incorporating praise brings the focus back to our great God. Praising Him helps us recognize how every need we have is met in who God is.
What are some of the prayer needs you cover in the book?
I covered the needs of families in our communities, such as foster families, special needs families, pregnancy crises, raising children, marriages, divorce, adoption and infertility. I also take a look at many of the justice issues facing our societies today, including prejudice, homelessness, hunger, human trafficking, refugees and violence. The prayers also include topics related to how we interact with our communities, including generosity, kindness, estranged relationships, joy, obedience to God, vanity and our yearnings.
Why is it hard for us to pray with focused intention for the requests of those around us?
Our world has become increasingly chaotic, with an endless stream of chatter and alerts from our tech devices. Every week the news reports more heartbreaking tragedies. I find with so many things calling for my attention, it can be easy to let prayer get squeezed out of the day. Sometimes I just don't know where to begin, or I can't find the words to express the ache in my soul. My heart and mind often jump from need to need. Writing and then reading these prayers and verses has become a starting place to bring my focused attention to God in prayer for my community.
Is Pray A to Z best used individually, or does it work in a group setting as well? Is it appropriate for parents to use with their children?
Pray A to Z works well as a personal prayer guide as part of developing and deepening your private conversations with God. It also works great in a group setting. Whether you use the book to open a small group meeting or take the entire group time to pray through topics together, Pray A to Z can serve as a starting point for prayers together. Many times people are uncomfortable praying out loud in front of others, and reading a prayer from the book and inserting names and situations specific to your community can help ease that discomfort. I've had parents say using Pray A to Z in their family has opened the door to talk to their children about important topics. It's a blessing for parents and children to pray together and see how God answers throughout time.
What do you hope readers take away from this book?
My hope is readers will not just become more engaged and excited about their prayer life and their relationship with God, but as a result they will also become more involved with the people who surround them every day. I've had readers tell me how God has made them more aware of the struggles people are facing and has also revealed how they can be His hands and feet of love to their communities.
Do you have any additional or supplemental resources to help readers pray A to Z?
I developed a set of prayer cards featuring just one topic per letter but covering many of the major issues in our communities. I've also created a guide for groups that is available for download for anyone who desires to begin a prayer group in his or her neighborhood, church or community.
