To My Sisters in Seminary (and those who want to be)

Sharon Church, Women's Ministry 11 Comments

Sisters in seminary, I’ve been thinking about you. More specifically, I’ve been thinking about those of you enrolled at evangelical seminaries. You came to mind last week, when the internet exploded with discussions of authority and accountability and whether or not you need a degree to be a leader in Jesus’ church. Many voices weighed in with a variety of perspectives, but you were …

A Worn-out Woman Like Me

The name “Isaac” has a lot of significance in my family.  For generations, men in the Miller family have been named Isaac.

Between Scriptural passages like Titus 2, and scientific studies showing the health benefits of female friendship, it is clear to me that God created women to be in fellowship with one another.
