Are You All In? #LOVE

  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

Finding the Merry in Christmas

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

Reason to Fly!

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

A Day of REST

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

National Day of Prayer Against Porn: TODAY!

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

Look At The Globe!

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

Woven: Every Woman on the Planet

“Am I allowed to come to this event? I’m not in a Woven group.” The answer is always a resounding “YES!” Woven is the antithesis of female cliques. My tag line “WOVEN IS FOR EVERY WOMAN” didn’t seem to be working. Women aren’t used to such an open invitation for friendship, and that’s exactly why Woven was birthed.

Woven GNO: The Nook Challenge!

I just love having women in my NOOK! I’ve discovered that women love being invited for coffee (tea for me, please!), breakfast, brunch, or just to chat. (Read about my Nook in the sidebar to the right :). I often share photos from my Nook on Facebook, but this picture gives you an inside look from the outside and

Slow Down

When was the last time you actually took the time? Time to simply slow down, enjoy the day Time to allow your inner child to come out and play Time to be idle; observe the cycle of nature Time to witness the miracles of our Maker God has been returning me to my roots. It began through a reconnection with my first

WOVEN GNO: When Life Becomes 911

Anyone who is old enough to remember September 11, 2001, will never forget: the day the towers fell in NYC.  A line was drawn in the sand dividing the past from the future. That single moment of time reminded the entire world that the future is unpredictable, unknown… just one moment, one day, one event can
