Hope from God's Word

Dear Extraordinary Woman,

Recently, in my church service our pastor challenged us with the following verses on HOPE. I pray they are as encouraging to you as they were to me!

Romans 8:18-25

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

Luke 3:4-6 provides something we all can hope in every day. . .

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,

"The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straight, and the rough places shall become level ways, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'"

May God's Word be sufficient for your every need this day!!

A Story of Hope

Happy New Year!!

During the month of January, we are focusing on this year's EW conference theme of HOPE!

Recently, we came across this beautiful devotional written by the Executive Director of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Additionally exciting is the fact that Lysa TerKeurst, founder and President of Proverbs 31 Ministries is among the group of beautiful women who will be speaking at EW events this year!

A brief excerpt is posted here:

LeAnn Rice, Executive Director, Proverbs 31 Ministries

“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”
1 Timothy 6:17 (NIV)

Wealth is something I didn’t think I had.

As a single mom widowed over 13 years ago, I don’t have money for extras like new clothes or weekend trips. Therefore, I didn’t think it was possible for me to give much to others and this made me sad. Until I realized it’s not the size of a gift that matters.

It’s the amount of hope wrapped around the gift that makes all the difference.

I learned about true wealth through a sweet little boy I met during a missions trip to Ecuador with Compassion International.

Miguel lives in a one-room house with his mother and three siblings. They share a bed that lies on a dirt floor. They have no bathroom and no electricity. The vegetables his mother used to prepare their evening meal consisted of peelings and rotting parts that certainly would never have made it into one of my recipes. I would have mindlessly thrown them away.

My eyes filled with tears of sadness as I stared true poverty in the face....

We HOPE this story inspires you today and encourages you to hold out hope in your circle of influence. It may be a hurting neighbor, church member, or woman you meet at the gym. Everyone has a story and is in need of hope today....just look in their eyes and you'll see. You'll be glad you did!

If you have any inspiring stories of hope, please send them to: as we would love to hear from you...and share your story of hope with others!

Many Blessings,

Julie Clinton, President of Extraordinary Women

Don't Miss Christmas!

Wow!  We can't believe that 2010 is coming to a close....and we know you feel the same way!  What a great year!  It has been such an incredible honor and blessing to serve you all and we are eagerly hoping to see you back at one of our 11 EW conferences across the US in 2011!!

Earlier this month, the staff at EW and the AACC were challenged by founder, Dr. Tim Clinton with this, "Don't Miss Christmas!"  At first you would think, "How can we miss Christmas?"  Christmas trees for sale, Santas at every party and store,  "Lowest Price of the Year" sales, lights, etc. etc. etc.  Right?!

Well the reality is, Christmas is EASY to miss...if you're not careful!  The joy in a child's eyes...opportunities to give to those less fortunate...freshly fallen snow...singing carols down the halls of the local nursing home or hospital....celebrating the birth of Jesus...these can all be quickly overlooked if we don't stop and take the time to truly see the wonder of this special time of year. 

So as Christmas approaches this week and the New Year shortly thereafter, take a few moments to stop....slow down....and breathe in--CHRISTMAS!  You'll be glad you did!

In Jesus we have the greatest JOY, the sweetest PEACE, the highest HOPE!  May the love of Jesus, the purpose of His life, and the gift of His salvation touch your heart in a special way this Christmas.

See you in 2011!  We love you!!
