    Prayer, TWR Women of Hope, Devotional

    As Christians, we are called to continually grow in Christlikeness. As we grow in faith, our desire to become like Jesus should increase.

    TWR Women of Hope brings hope in Jesus to women around the world and across generations. We long for women to see themselves as valuable in God’s eyes – his precious daughters. But have we accepted and applied this message in our own lives?

    TWR Women of Hope, Devotional, Peggy's Update

    The Lord is close to the brokenhearted

    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

    Psalm 34:18

    There have been many times when God has been near to my broken heart. When I came to know Jesus, my heart was broken in my sin. Recently, there has been brokenness within relationships in my family.

    Yet I’m so grateful that God is near to the...

    “Christ alone can bring lasting peace – peace with God – peace among men and nations – and peace within our hearts.” Billy Graham

    In days of isolation, little communication with extended family and new ways to do our work, it can be hard to find our peace. Yet the Bible tells us that there is a peace available to us...

    TWR Women of Hope, Devotional

    Our praise and worship of God draws us into greater intimacy with him. God calls us to quiet ourselves to seek him in a deeper way. He asks us to release our control and let him take the lead so we can discover what is real, stable and foundational.

    In John Ortberg’s book God Is Closer Than You Think, he describes seven spiritual pathways...

    “I honestly think that social media puts teens specifically into a position of where they no longer feel good about themselves a lot.

    “No mother should die while giving birth—stand up for African mothers.” This is the motto of the audio drama series called Healing Voice.

    TWR Women of Hope, Devotional, Issues Women Face, Marriage

    God has designed us to be in relationship with others. New relationships regularly come into our lives through marriage, family, childbirth and friendship. Others are taken from us or fail to materialize (through miscarriages, infertility, divorce, widowhood or illness). As we walk through these seasons of life, God is very clear that he is...

    God has created us to be in relationship with him and with each other. It’s a gift from God! As Christians, we belong to God’s family. Ephesians 2:19 says we are “…fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household.”

    We can experience love, acceptance and joy in the family, in the church...
