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.

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, …

Tips for Enjoying Scripture Memory (with kids or kids at heart!)

The kids and I have memorized lots of scripture together. The key for us has been keeping it simple and enjoyable.

Why do it at all? Because life throws hurdles and darts, and God says that His word is many things for us:
power-giving, direction-setting, wisdom-finding, life-sustaining!  
Memorizing doesn't have to be a chore. It doesn't even have to be work--it can be enjoyable! Really!

Here's how to keep scripture memory simple, enjoyable, and effective:1. Select a passage rather than individual verses. Things are not only easier to understand in context, they're easier to memorize because you're putting more meaning to the words as it flows from thought to thought. Choose a short passage (a dozen or so verses) in a translation with easy language. If all you have is a King James Bible, select the same passage at in either NIV or ESV translation. (If you don't have a passage in mind, I will make a few suggestions at the bottom of this post).
