There is a great deal of guilt that goes with this sandwich generation lifestyle, and it comes from all directions. We feel guilty when we leave our children to care for our parents, and we feel guilty when we don’t. You, your children, and your parents are all rolled up in one God-ordained family. Why not enjoy it together? Your parents and your children will benefit from the relationship, and you will find the burden of all that caregiving lifted when you include your family in your parents’ care.Read More

Are You Worthy Of The Calling My church is currently teaching on biblical manhood and womanhood in our Sunday school classes. Titus 2 is the most common text for what biblical womanhood is to be. Older women are to be engaged in a training process with the younger women in their lives and churches. It is our responsibility to raise a generation of sensible, disciplined, prudent, wise, discreet, restrained women who are committed to doing God’s will. This is a tremendous challenge. It is an incredible calling. If we are to have such an opportunity, it means we must...Read More
This is where you and I come in. As we seek to minister to those in our church and our community, it is easy to forget these elderly ladies. After all, we don’t see them. Unless someone brings them to church, we may never meet them, or even know that they exist. You and I must actively seek out opportunities to serve these dear ones.

Ask if they have a list of “shut-ins” (I really don’t like that term, but it is the most common one for this group), and begin to make contact.Read More
It’s never going to be back-and-white . Submitting to an unbelieving husband is a balancing act. Sometimes you have to weigh the command to submit against the other commands of Scripture. You must not submit, for example, if he asks you to sin. Like the disciples, you must obey God rather than man (Acts 5:29). Remember that Sapphira did not earn God’s favor by submitting to Ananias’ evil plan (Acts 5:1-11). And Abigail was anything but submissive when she saved Nabal from David’s wrath (1 Samuel 25).Read More
The decision to work outside the home or to stay at home as a wife and mother is an intensely personal one. We live in an age when women have unlimited opportunities for a career choice, and are no longer bound to the home in high heels and pearls as in the 1950’s. This has been a tremendous blessing for some women, and not so much for others. Like many of you I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, the time in American history when women believed they were being liberated from the “shackles” of role models like...Read More
