The True Woman

I will be reading a book by Susan Hunt, The True Woman. Has anyone read this book or heard of it? I am curious what I can learn from this book and while I am reading this book, I will post some response and what I am learning.


“A content woman isn’t worried, upset, or agitated about what she doesn’t have or what she thinks she needs or what she wants. Instead she’s at rest with her God and her surroundings. Why? Because everything she needs is all that God is and all He has already provided for her.” Elizabeth George

Waiting on the Lord

Lately the Lord is teaching me to wait on Him and His timing. I have been praying about the months and years to come and I am excited to see what the Lord is doing. I am wondering what areas of my life I will be challenged. I am waiting on the Lord as He told me too, about everything. I am a young woman that does not know what is to come, the challenges, the lost, pain and happiness. But I will wait patiently on the Lord. I will continue to Praise God and seek His face daily. I will continue to pray for family, friends and the brothers and sisters in Christ. This morning I am reminded as I look at God's Word: Hosea 12:6
6 But you must return to your God; maintain love and justice, and wait for your God always.
Isaiah 40:31
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Psalm 37:7
be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their w…

Leaving a Godly Legacy

God has bless with a mentor for my second year in college. This young woman name is Khambye and I am so thankful for her. She is a graduate of Nyack College Seminary and now that she is graduated, I will miss her when she moves back to California. This woman has pour into my life and I have learn so much from her. On our last meeting me and the other mentees made her a scrapbook and wrote her a letter. That night she gave us a song called "Legacy" by Nichole Nordeman the lyrics are below:

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me And I enjoy an accolade like the rest You could take my picture and hang it in a gallery Of all who's who and so-n-so's that used to be the best At such'n'such ... it wouldn't matter much I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights We all need an 'Atta boy' or 'Atta girl' But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides The temporary trappings of this world

Finish With My Second Year of College!!!!!

I can't believe it is May already and that I am done with my second year in college. Time is going so fast and I just want time to slow down. I am out of school for this summer and I am going to try to keep my blog up to date. So much has happen since the last time I wrote on my blog. The Lord is Faithful and have been gracious to me. He is teaching me so much and it just feels great to be connected to God and have a relationship with Him. I got two summer jobs, one is working in the registrar office and the other is being a mentor for the summer both academically and spiritually. I'll be honest when I first heard about these jobs, I did not want to apply because I was afraid. I knew that I would have to come out my shell and be around people more and to be open. I want to get out my shell and to do things I would never do but I was afraid. I want to be challenge in the areas of talking to people and being around the brothers and sisters in the Faith. I am a very shy person an…
