The Antidote for Anger

By: Tricia Baldwin | December 5, 2000

As I walked out the church door that late summer Sunday morning, my heart was crushed and the tears flowed. This had been a special place where I had grown in my relationship to Christ, developed valued friendships and committed myself to serve. How did it come to this?

Whose Prayers Count More?

By: Chelsea DeArmond | September 5, 2000

As I bowed my head to pray, I remember feeling disappointed that the pastor’s wife was praying with me instead of the pastor. Although she was a godly woman, I thought that somehow if he led me in prayer it would count more than his wife’s prayers. I wished that I could sneak [...]

Why We Need Women Evangelists around the World

By: Kari Torjesen Malcolm | April 30, 1989
