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 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.

Top 10 Reasons Why People Don't Read the Bible

I've spent 15+ years in ministry, and I've noticed a problem:
people who say they believe the Bible haven't actually read it, and people who don't believe the Bible don't want to read it. My response to both groups is this: YOU ARE MISSING OUT! Why? Because the Bible is the best proven source for life-changing joy and peace. And since it's misquoted and misrepresented all the time, you need to actually read it yourself in order to know if you do/don't agree with it or do/don't want to read it.

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?

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 people, even those who don't worship God, agree that Jesus was a good person with a …

Essential Christian Book List

There are impressive blog posts with images and links and amazon store commissions. This ain't one of those posts. My list doesn't contain the most recent pop culture Christian trends. Instead it's simple, dependable, filled with classics--some new, some old, and some perhaps forgotten.

*Note: I'm not calling anything a "must-read" except for the Bible. It's on a list all its own. It's the absolute most essential collection of written words ever, and if you need convincing, please read my previous post about it.

Life After Summer Mission

(originally published 2013, updated 2018)
If what started out as the hardest summer of your life
-working the longest hours you've ever worked,
-being stretched physically, emotionally, and spiritually,
-relying on God to make it to the end of the week (much less 5 or 10 weeks),
-wondering how you were gonna live happily for that long with all these new people...

If you thought all of that was challenging, you had no idea that the biggest challenge came at the end-

-after God had pushed you through to the other side:
where the work seemed tiring but in a rewarding way,
where the schedule stretched you thin, but you now know yourself and God better because of carving out time for Him,
where you stepped into scary situations and saw God show up in ways only He can,
where you now know once strangers soul to soul, backwards, forwards and sideways, and you love them anyways,
where you experienced that they love YOU in spite of every flaw you possess,
and that saying goodbye to mission …
