• Love Never Fails
    When our sons were young we would go to Forest Park, Georgia and stay with my husband Danny’s parents every Christmas. We would stay for almost two weeks because Danny was a professor and the boys would be on Christmas break. We had a wonderful time visiting with both sides of the family and looked forward to this special time every year. We have four sons, twins Nathan and Jonathan, Paul, and Timothy. The older our sons grew, the less time we got to spend in Georgia. Our sons all played basketball in middle and high school and every year they would have practice on December 26 for a tournament that would last for two or three days. We would always start the drive home from Georgia on Christmas Day. On the road, Danny and the guys would […]
  • Spurring One Another On
    Running can be a very selfish sport. While running enjoys a community of runners from all over the world, at its heart it is about one person finishing a race ahead of someone else. It is for this reason the ending of the women’s race of the 2017 Dallas Marathon was so meaningful. Like so many others the morning of Sunday, Dec. 10, I stood in the 30-degree temperatures along Young Street in downtown Dallas. The sun was rising over the start line, and it was proving it was going to be a pretty day with warm weather to run 26.2 miles around the City of Dallas. This was my second marathon and fourth time to participate in the weekend series of events in my hometown. Not the slowest of runners, but not the fastest of runners either, my start […]
  • Find Your Tribe | Event Recap
    Find Your Tribe was an absolute blessing! Ladies from all different walks of life gathered together to build community here at Southeastern. Our ladies were able to see that though we may be in different seasons of life, we all dwell under one common bond—the gospel of Jesus Christ. We long for each woman here on campus to feel loved, valued, empowered, and cared for. We want her to have a voice, to have a place, and to find her tribe, whether she is a single college student, a working mother, an empty nester, or anything in-between. […]
  • Discipleship: A Command For All Believers
    Here at Southeastern, we seek to fulfill the Great Commission. It is written in our mission statement and recorded on the top of every syllabus. It is a part of every classroom and every assignment. The word “GO” has been branded in our logo and is now on our bumper stickers, our license plates, our apparel, but mostly in our hearts. We train men and women to GO, reaching the nations with the gospel of Christ. We are a Great Commission Seminary. The Great Commission, however, is not completed by our mere going. It also entails discipleship. Look at the words that follow the word GO: “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them […]
  • Navigating Women’s Ministry
    “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8) It is hard for me to remember a time as an adult that I haven’t been involved in Women’s Ministry and experienced the blessing of growing spiritually through it. My first participation with like-minded, redeemed women was in the women’s fellowships that were offered at the seminary.   We had the thrill of having Elisabeth Elliott around to occasionally address our little meetings.  What an unforgettable, godly treasure of wisdom she was.
