In the spring of 2004, I presented a concert at a small church in NC. As I sang one of my original songs God grabbed my attention, spoke into my spirit and said, "I want you to minister to women." For a short moment He allowed me to only see the ladies who were there. As I looked into their eyes, I caught a glimpse of their struggles, pains and worries. All at once that Lord touched the pastor's wife and she stood with her arms raised to the Heavens weeping and crying out to Him. The women began coming to the altar with the men following!
This was the beginning of a wonderful work God planted in my heart. I felt the Lord was leading me to host conferences and as I prayed and sought His will, He gave me two conference topics entitled "Hope for Today" and "Knowing God". I speak and sing for women's events all across the country and have found that women from all walks of life have one thing in common and that is the need to be encouraged with the Hope of Jesus Christ and through much prayer Encouraging Today's Women was formed.
Not long after, I was sitting at the computer in my office when the Lord spoke to me and said, "Encouraging Today's Women is for the hinges." I immediately looked over at the hinges on my office door. The realization hit me that the door needed those hinges in order to open AND to remain open. Our ladies ministry, Encouraging Today's Women, is sanctioned by God to encourage women in the local church who loves the Lord and helps to keep the doors of the church open!
Today's women have a sincere desire to serve God, but often our lives become a balancing act with family, friends, work and church. If we are not careful, we become discouraged in our service and dissatisfied with our life. God wants you to know that He has not forgotten about you! He loves you and wants to fill you with fresh oil that pours through Encouraging Today's Women ministry!
We believe in getting involved in our local community that's why Encouraging Today's Women remains active through community service initiatives geared toward improving the quality of life for others. A lot of good families have found themselves at a point of need due to the failing economy. Through donations from churches and individuals, Encouraging Today's Women provides families with needed hygiene items that cannot be purchased with food stamps.
We also minister to women in the Salvation Army homeless shelter in Athens, GA and the Walton County GA correctional institute. Many women have been saved through this outreach and countless others are encouraged in the hope of Christ!
