Sex & the City Uncovered

Author Marion Jordan shares her story “Sex & the City Uncovered”
Nearly 300 UNT girls attended and 34 want to start a relationship with God!
Jordan exposed these 3 lies to the crowd:
LIE #1: "You are worth loving if you are sexually attractive."
LIE #2: "Sex is no Big Deal."
LIE #3: "It's too late for me."


During their summer break, University of North Texas students organized and fundraised to bring author Marion Jordan to their campus to share the message that while the college world thinks “sex is no big deal”, God has different intentions and that while the world sells the idea “You are worth loving if you’re sexually attractive,” God offers them true love. At the end of her presentation, Marion told them,”Jesus wants you to know that you are WORTH MORE...you are worth DYING FOR.”
After her message, Marion (pictured in center amongst the student leaders) hung out with the girls for 2 more hours, and offered a training session for leaders to start a Bible study/book club with her book “Sex & the City Uncovered.” She gave them free materials and prayed for their endeavors. The response was such that there are enough interested students and student-leaders to begin a study in each sorority house!
Please pray for the students who are stepping out of their comfort zone—some for the first time—to lead a study in their house. Pray for us as we follow-up individually with those who have chosen Christ for the first time.
UPDATE: The Sex & the City Uncovered "book clubs" have been going strong since mid-September. The leaders gather once a week for prayer and training from our staff on Monday mornings at 7AM for breakfast--now that's commitment for college students to rise and shine that early! :) Please continue to pray for these girls. Praise God that their own lives are being refined as they find fellowship, accountability and challenge through their new group and new roles.

Talk About Pop Music--Singing Through the Static

Where we live there are a lot of winding country roads which effect our ability to receive a consistent radio signal. (Who listens to radio anymore? Spotify, XM, playlists from my phone...yeah, yeah, I'm aware of these things, but I still love the spontaneity and variety of good old fashioned FM radio--and so much so that I'm not even deterred by a poor signal). It's commonplace for my kids and I to be singing along to a song only to be interrupted by static or worse, a competing radio signal which gives us the pleasure of two songs at once.

Yesterday my girls and I were enjoying a particular favorite song when another signal encroached. We kept singing along to our tune as it remained the dominant. It started to fade, and only a word or two emerged amidst the chit-chat of the other station. My youngest daughter stopped singing to ask, "Can you just turn it off?" I said, "Sure, but y'all keep on singing." So they did.

We finished our song in acappel…

An Avenue of Opportunity

This summer marks our 12th year of raising support. In other words, we raise all the money that funds our ministry, our income, our health benefits, our social security taxes; i.e. everything. I was casually chatting with a friend over lunch yesterday (casually because we were sitting on damp beach blankets while our kids picnicked in swimsuits in the backyard) about how God has changed my view of this task of support-raising over the years.
When we began fresh out of college, the idea of support-raising seemed daunting, but faith-stretching. And I worried what people would think of us. Would they think we are beggars?

We focused on "God, will you meet our needs?"
"Yes, I will; in my time," answered the Almighty.

He slowly led us to compassionate individuals, many of whom we had never met, and we had the privilege of experiencing His provision through the compassion of His people.

The abundance of His provision has ebbed and flowed over the years--needs always met, …

Top 10 Reasons Why People Don't Read the Bible

I've spent 15 years in ministry, and I've found an increasing problem that people who say they believe the Bible haven't actually read it and people who don't believe the Bible don't want to, mostly because of the misbehavior of the former. My suggested solution to both groups is to read it for yourself, not only because you will be accurately informed, but also because there is none such other source that proves to bring about life-changing joy and peace. When I mention this, it usually surfaces at least one of these 10 barriers that prevent folks from completing it.
Do you relate to any of these barriers?
Will you accept my challenge to read the Bible for yourself this year?
Can I persuade you that there is no good reason to say no?


10 Reasons Most People Don't Read the Bible, Refuted 1. I'm not religious. The Bible is the best-selling book of all time. Jesus has been hailed by secular sources as the most influential person to ever walk on the earth. Most…
