MONDAY - ON COFFEE with Kim - Justina Page - author, speaker, actress, SURVIVOR by God's grace!

On Monday's COFFEE...A woman’s true story of rebuilding her faith in the aftermath of harrowing tragedy.

In the early hours of March 7, 1999, Justina Page’s life changed forever when a four alarm house fire ravaged and destroyed her family’s home. In the aftermath, in addition to the heartbreaking loss of one of her 22-month-old twin boys, Justina and her husband had to cope with the physical injuries to both her and their surviving son.

The Circle of Fire chronicles her struggle to overcome the devastating consequences of this catastrophic event. Justina’s is a journey of discovery—that personal tragedy is not a life sentence to despair, anger, and continual pain and suffering, and that something positive can be salvaged from every agonizing experience, even when your faith has truly been tried by fire.

How Biblical Is Your Biblical Womanhood?

If we’re basing our beliefs on Scripture, and if Jesus said all of Scripture points to Him, then wouldn’t it make sense to build or at least harmonize our biblical womanhood on how Jesus related to women?

Scripture References:
Samaritan Woman: John 4
Woman with the flow of blood: Mark 5:25–34, Luke 8:43–48
Mary and Martha: Luke 10:38–42

Why Bari Weiss' resignation from the New York Times matters to evangelicals and to American culture - Denison Forum

This blog by Dr. Jim Denison and the Denison Forum is similar to the blog post by Wade Burleson. In this post Dr. Denison talks about the current trend for news agencies to report or distort information favoring one viewpoint. As Christians we must be aware and respond accordingly. Dr. Denison gives specific examples of how we might respond.

denisonforum.org Bari Weiss' resignation from the New York Times has generated headlines this week. In The Daily Article for July 17, 2020, Dr. Jim Denison tells her story, then examines the "new consensus" she identifies and its crucial significance for Christians and our larger culture.

Will I Listen to an Expert on the State of My Soul?

I started following Wade Burleson many years ago because I ran across a post of his regarding women in ministry. He presented a balanced and biblical perspective on a divisive topic. In this pandemic, I have found his counsel to be equally balanced and biblical. This blog speaks to individual choice and how we should not, we must not, resign our freedoms. It's a quick read. I'd enjoy hearing your thoughts.
