Our post-modern age inundates us with sound bytes and video blips, not to mention all of the written words that scroll along in a daily news cycle. It's a loud world with people vying to be heard. But you only have so much time to give, so how do you decide what's worth your time? Today we wanted to highlight some reasons why we hope you will use a bit of your precious time to be a regular reader of re:flect-I.com
This blogging ministry is brought to you by the Women of the Word, a ministry of Christ the Word Church in Toledo Ohio.
re:flect-I is an unusual name, but it captures the heart behind this blog...reflecting God in all that I think, in all that I say, and in all that I do. Our intent in writing is to serve as a practical help to women walking out God's greatest commands:
And [Jesus] answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
This blog seeks to encourage women to press on in the daily trials and struggles they may face, to bolster faith in Christ Jesus through the clamoring times in which we live, and to challenge women to stand firm in holy living...all based on the truths found in the Bible. Along the way, we also hope to introduce Christ to those who do not yet know Him.
The women who write here are ordinary women who are seeking to follow an extraordinary God. May you find strength and encouragement here as you press on too. We pray that for these reasons you find re:flect-I worth reading and worth sharing!
