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!!

Do You Know Who I Am – Angela Thomas

Angela Thomas has been with us at many of our EWomen conferences this year.  Many of you have had chance to hear her message and meet her in person.

I am so excited to tell y’all about this new book  -- Do You Know Who I Am and other brave questions women ask by Angela Thomas.

Angela told me about this project months ago when she was still knee deep in the writing process – and I fell in love with concept.  And this book meets my expectations and then some.  Let me share with y’all a little bit about it.

Angela asks  God if He really knows her,  sees her and loves her right where she is in the midst of her life. In return God asks if we know just WHO He is.  It’s wonderful biblical teaching on the character of God.

Each chapter  mirrors a time in my spiritual life – some more recent than others, but all applicable to me and probably every woman out there walking this life in Jesus.  

I love the opening chapter  -- I Am Afraid to Dream Big … He Is Worthy

Oh girls, how many times do we put God in a box with words such as “I just can’t do that” or “I don’t have that gift" or some other sad excuse to cover up our fear?  We ask God do you know I’m afraid to dream big?  I’m afraid of what may be ahead?”  And God answers us “do you know Who I Am – I Am Worthy.”

Angela takes us into the book of Ephesians for some rich application on what we have received from God --

God has provided you with every spiritual blessing (1:3)

God gives you a glorious inheritance & His incomparable power (1:18-19)

God has prepared good works for you to do (2:10)

And the list goes on and on.  This page is highlighted, tagged and written all over – it’s a great list to keep beside you when you feel a little down or unworthy.

I could talk/ write about every chapter but I’ll just share the titles:

I am Invisible … He is My God Who Sees

I Am Trembling Inside … He is My Comfort

I Am Worn Out … He Does Not Grow Weary

I Am Suffering with a Thorn … He is My Sufficiency

I Am a Sinner … He Is My Savior

I Am Lonely … He is Here

I Am Undisciplined … He Is My Strength

I Am Hesitant … He Is Generous

I Am Ordinary … He is My King and Father

I Am Broken…. He is My Redeemer

I Am Disappointed… He Is My Hope

Angela teaches us the secret to being known by God is understanding who God is – and that He does see us and love us right where we are.  God loves us even when you’re knee-deep in toddlers and the most exciting thing you can accomplish is taking a shower.  God sees you right there. 

God loves us when we are afraid, lonely, frightened, hurt – God sees each one of us and He has a purpose for each one of  us. 

Do you know who I am

I encourage you to pick up Do You Know Who I Am.  It’s filled with wonderful storytelling, spot on biblical application and heartfelt insight. 

I was given a copy of this book for review, but I would have bought it anyway!!
