Hello Friend, It’s YOU-time! We pray you’ve had a blessed Christmas. We know that for some, that means just surviving! For others, it is enjoying a gift or the ability to give. Others are blessed to spend time with friends and family that we don’t see very often. We replay old memories, missing those who have
Tis the season of GIVING (and yes, receiving). My Christmas wish for Woven Women is to encourage the precious hearts at The Courage House with the message that they are LOVED BEYOND MEASURE! The Courage House is a temporary home for rehabilitating women with drug and alcohol addictions. Many of these gals have attended our Woven events over the years. If you
We’re gearing up for our Women’s Marketplace. Our list of exhibitors continues to expand as we enter our 5th year for this event. We’re expecting our best year yet. As always, we look forward to welcoming exhibitors and customers, shopping, and extending love and hospitality to all. Join us on November 21st, 9am -2pm at Newark Church
Hello Woven Women! I know: I’ve been quiet for awhile. God has been teaching much in the past months of pulling away from the desk and taking a semi-sabbatical. One thing I’m learning is to just be open to spontaneity in my schedule, to not hold such a tight grip on the arrangement of my day, not be in a hurry but
ALL IN! It’s the topic of our 2015 Woven Women Weekend this Saturday, March 7th, and this is the day to register. What does it mean to be ALL IN? Jesus captures our attention with these words in Luke 10:27 “Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart and with ALL your soul
Looking for some Merry in your Christmas? Have your HO-HO-HO’s turned to BAH-HUM-BUGS? We find the Merry in Christmas by peering into the face of Christ. Ah! the cherub innocence of a newborn babe! December 19, 2008, I witnessed the birth of my first grandson. What a glory to behold! Nothing could compare to this
I watched the process of birthing and nurturing a family from my window this past year. Male and female became mates and nested in our ready-made house. Equally excited, they did their best to ready it as an incubator. One going in to tidy things up. The other waiting to check the progress. One such day, I observed the Mrs. toting an extra long
We could all use one! Sounds so good this time of year, doesn’t it? By now we’re all feeling a bit rough around the edges, rushing against the clock to pull things together for the holidays. Seriously! Who has time for a day of rest? Rest is more than just a good idea. It’s one of the original Ten Commandments of
This is a social problem that I am passionate about: the devastating effect of pornography on our families, our marriages, our children. Let’s pray for an end to the exploitation and oppression of women and children. Let’s pray for God to strengthen our men in this battle for their minds, their hearts. Friends, let’s get on
When is the last time you gazed at a globe? Twirled it on it’s axle? Considered the geography of this grand sphere, this planet Earth? In the midst of the “pandemic” named Ebola, God deemed the new year as the culmination of a 10 year call for ME, Cynthia K. Stiverson, to teach, preach, share Jesus and introduce Woven to the women of
My Boy & his Girlie (that’s me!) recently purchased a new home.
We were in search of a larger home in the country.
God gave us a smaller home in the city.
All who know us marvel at this perfect fit.
And we are surprised by how “at home” we are here.
Built in the 1930’s, it has all the charm of an older home. But the most precious space of all is the breakfast nook. Tucked in the recesses of our little kitchen is an intimate spot where hearts meet over pizza, home-cooked meals, coffee, tea, or just you and me.
…is a place for listening, sharing, praying, connecting, loving, learning, inspiring and being inspired by whomever the Lord may send this way.
And in the midst of it all, our hearts are being ever-so-gently Woven together in His love.
I’m so thankful you’ve arrived! My heart is open wide to welcome you and I truly believe God has brought you. Right here. Right now.
After all, I’ve been praying and saving a space just for YOU!
