• Rom.10:9.10; 1 Cor. 15:1-5

    That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the Gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you unless you believe in vain.

    Rom.10:9.10; 1 Cor. 15:1-5

    ... For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.

    Psalms 96:3 NKJV “Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”

    Psalm 96:3 is part of a hymn lifting up the Lord and praising Him for all that he has done. Much like we are eager to tell people when we are in love, the same should be true of God. We are so filled with love for Him and the blessings of the Spirit that we cannot keep silent.

  • I was born in Illinois, in July of 1946, and in October of 1969, I was born again while watching Billy Graham on T.V. during a BILLY GRAHAM CRUSADE IN St. Louis, Mo. Later, I was baptized in a small river called Camp Joy outside of Carlyle. Jesus has never left my side since then. 

    I am a Spirit ordained Evangelist and Teacher of the Word of God. I have taken some online courses as well as attended college and earned a few credits there. I immediately went back to the Church I was raised in, and took my children with me.  I started teaching Sunday School for 7th. and 8th. graders and taught for some time. Later on when my kids were getting to be teen-agers, I started teaching Sunday School class and also 7th. and 8th. grade class in our private school that our Church had opened. When I turned 55, I started a women's class in the annex building of our church, and called it Daughter's of Abraham. We had a wonderful time of learning in this class.

    As time went on, I started having Church in my home, by the request of several, and quite a few started attending. We held church services here for almost 2 years, then many of the younger ones started moving away to the big city, but I continued holding Bible Classes.  As I am a retired and living on Social Security, I cannot get up and do many things that others can.  I do thank God for sending a friend who helps pay for the Web Site Ministry and has since its conception. Our God has always made sure that there was enough left for me to be able to continue doing this work. I, therefore, feel very privileged to do His work.  

    In 2011, I started an ONLINE via Conference Phone prayer line.  Almost all of the women who started then are still ONLINE praying in agreement for families and many others.  We are growing and learning how to pray God's Word instead of our words.

    In 2012, I was asked to teach another women's class in a town called Keyesport, about 15 miles from Carlyle. I called this class  HEPHZIBAH WOMEN'S EQUIPPING FOR THE BIBLE CLASS, and we have steadily continued to grow with the Lord, through His wonderful Holy Scriptures. I have also been asked to come and teach in several cities and even other countries, but have been told by my Father that I have a full plate for my age.  

    In February 1st. 2016, I started an ONLINE BIBLE STUDY CLASS and I am amazed at what has been happening in this class of women.  We are learning by leaps and bounds, and enjoying each other's company.  We have women from all around America as well as a few from Canada.  They are from Illinois, Tennessee, Indiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, Florida and Texas, and are hungry to learn the Word of God.

    As a mother of four grown children and spouses, I am also a grandmother of many more, therefore I do stay active with not only doing the Lord's work but family and friends are very important in my life.  My home has always been open for all those who are in need, and I have a heart that beats only for Jesus.  He is the reason I am here. He is the very breath in me. I depend on His Holy Spirit to continually guide and teach me in the way He wants me to go. I have been known for many years now of being a very fervent and powerful praying woman. I take prayer serious and I also take the power and authority that Jesus gave us before He went back to the throne with the Father.   I will continue going about doing my Father's business until He calls us up and out of here with a shout and trump to meet Him and all my loved ones in the air.

    I am grateful for all of you who visit and read this devotional daily, and pray for everyone who does.  Welcome to our ministry.
