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
“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.
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
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
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
My daughter Nicole and I will be speaking this Wednesday, Sept. 3rd, at Licking Memorial Hospital to Break the Silence of Childhood Sexual Abuse. This article addresses the reason we are committed to sharing our story: to protect the innocence of children and to aid in the healing of those who have been robbed of their
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!
