Questions? You’ve Got 30 Minutes!

Comments closed! See below!

Good morning, sisters! My mom already spoke to this in a little paragraph she added to the previous post, but I want to say that I was blown away by all the amazing testimonies of freedom that we shared! We were astounded at how they ministered to the first group of Breaking Free comments. I could not keep from praising our Savior. He is so mighty! There were several comments that addressed things I was dealing with that very day and they gave me an extra measure of faith to believe God for my victory. Thank you to everyone who shared and most of all, thank You, glorious Jesus, for setting us free!

Whew! Okay! Now for a breather! Mom and I thought it would be fun to do a Question and Answer post. We are going to open up comments for thirty minutes and see what you girls come up with. So if there’s something you want to ask, bring it on! I’m sure we won’t be able to answer every one, but I think it will still give us lots to talk about. Here’s a hint: we are hoping to give lots of shorter answers rather than a few very long ones. Okay, you’ve got thirty minutes! One, two, three, go!

TIME’S UP! Can’t wait to see what we’ve got! Watch for answers over the weekend! You guys are such a blast!

    What’s the best way to show Christ’s love to an “unloveable” husband? In other words, how do you love well while still not allowing yourself to be treated poorly?

    Being in ministry, I’ve come face-to-face with MANY challenges. I wish more people shared theirs so that I wouldn’t feel so alone in mine. Feeling like nobody else has them makes me want to throw in the towel sometimes! But I know God has called me. So…would you share one or two of your difficult challenges in ministry? Please be candid if you can. Thanks!!

    If you feel like God is leading you in one direction, and a trusted friend in Christ says that the Holy Spirit tells them you should go another way, how do you tell which is right?

    Beth, I have so much respect for your honesty and openness, because I feel like I can relate to you as a “real” person whose life is not completely “all together”. My question is this: If you could live your life all over again, what is the one thing that you would do differently?

    How can I recognize a “word” to me out of His Word? A personal word. . . how do I “hear” that?

    Does it surprise you or do you take us girls seriously when we ask where you bought “that shirt, that jacket, those shoes” and “what make up do you use?”

    My husband and I attend a church in Connecticut and we have been here for 8 years. We moved from Texas and actually I was on staff at HFBC and was Steve’s singles’ assistant! That is where Mark and I met. We miss Houston!!!!
    My question is – we are without a pastor and have been for 6 months. Several ladies in our church want to start a Women’s Ministry but are getting some resistance from other women in the church that have always done things their way. How do you suggest that we proceed?

    I’m 40 and never been married, never even had a serious relationship. Friends tell me I should enjoy it and accept it. I’ve prayed and prayed about it but the desire is still there to be married. How can I know for sure if God is calling me to be single all my life or if He has someone for me?

    Yay!! How fun! I know how to look English words up to find their Hebrew/Greek meaning. But, how do you do a reverse lookup to find Hebrew/Greek words and learn their English meaning?

    This is a great idea, by the way!! Thank you!

    Love always –

    Do you ever find that fellow believers have a hard time being around you or being your true friend as you receive God’s goodness, favor and blessings? If so, how does it not hurt your feelings? (I’m going through this right now)

    Amanda- Seriously do you get bombarded 100 times a day with “Can your Mom come speak to…”? also, as a Mom, are you able to get your quiet time in EVERY day? What is your way of doing quiet time, journaling, reading a study or just reading the Bible?

    Beth – What do you do to relax or just for fun? BTW Thank you for allowing me to not have to explain my DH’s fishing and hunting on sunday’s!

    What were some of the ways Miss Beth used to pass on her passion for Christ in you girls? I’m desperate to have my kids love him as much or more than I do. I already see my daughter growing in her love and knowledge for Christ (she’s 8) but my son is 11 and I’m having a hard time knowing where he is in his devotion and love for Christ. I know he has accepted Christ… but I want to make sure I pass along an inheritance of passion & devotion. :o)

    One more thing: Did you all listen to Christian music or common music?

    What words can you use to minister to someone who is dying? They are a believer but not ready to give up yet. Also – how do you speak to the family who are also believers but having an extremely hard time.

    I also wonder about Michael often. I pray he is doing well and walking with the Lord.

    Also, have you read the book “The Shack” by William Young? If so, what were your thoughts?

    Where was “Stepping Up” filmed? It is a smaller group than usual and someone noticed the other night that the girls are sitting on metal chairs. Also we can hear them respond from time to time. Fells like we are there. We are loving it! Isn’t it funny the things we ask 🙂

    You talk in breaking free about breaking the family chain of destruction, saying it stops here. My kids are already in their teen years and just in the past few year have I really gotten serious with God. So many of my teaching years with them are gone. How can I stop the destruction now? My oldest now mocks my walk with the Lord saying I didn’t use to be this way rebelling constantly. She sees it as weakness and has already begun a destructive road herself. How do I stop this destruction I’ve already set in motion.?

    How do you define “ministry”? Do you believe God calls each of us to a ministry, even if it is just having a family? Or if we experience what we believe to be a “call to ministry”, will God ultimately fulfill it with something vocational?

    How do you balance it all? I have a teenage son, work, am very active at my church. But even after trying to be more focused (deeper instead of wider), it’s still a lot. Unfortunately, it seems like friendships fall by the wayside.

    Corrie's Blog says:

    I am dating someone who loves the Lord and serves in the ministry with me but I feel isn’t entirely passionate about Him and it scares me as we are getting to the make it or break it point. I grew up with a legalistic father who talked the talk but didnt walk the walk and I dont want that in a future husband or father. He says my standards for a spiritual leader are too high and no guy is as passionate usually as girls are. But he also admits that he knows he is not as passionate as her should be or would like to be. His honesty is affirming but I don’t know. I know yall aren’t counselors and I need to trust the Holy Spirit’s leading on this…..but seeing as you are both Godly women and married, have any pre-marital advice regarding this subject??? 🙂

    I’ve heard you share in different Bible studies and in person about your struggles with fear and insecurity when you speak and other aspects of your ministry. I am so tempted to not do some of the things God has called me to do because of my fears and insecurities. I would just love to hear how God is working in your in those areas, and what you could offer to others of us who tend to want to run when God asks us to do things we’re uncomfortable with.

    Thanks for being such a mentor to those of us in ministry, who need some women to look up to! I continue to be encouraged by you!

    I have always wanted to do this and now I can’t think of any of the “deep ” things that I have wanted to ask!

    1. What is the software that you use , Beth, that pronounces the Greek words and names etc.

    2. What is your favorite place to eat out in Jackson Hole?

    Beth – First thank you for your ministry. God uses you in so many ways and your willingness to be used of Him is so inspiring. I felt God calling me to minister to women over 12 years ago. I ran for almost 10 of those years because I felt so unworthy to do it. Just in the last 2 years have I really surrendered and God has just been amazing in it all. I’ve learned so much, yet I know I have so much more to learn. I am a business woman with a lot of responsibility at work, yet I feel God pulling me to do more. I find if difficult at times to give my ministry the time I really need. I really can’t leave my job at this time and love what I do, yet my passion is to see women come to Christ and grow in his love. How did you find the balance when you first started out?

    How do you answer intrusive questions about your past? I don’t want to lie when it happens to me, but I do want to not go into detail and I don’t want to be rude.
