What Is a Godly Wife Supposed to Do?

By Leslie Vernick | January 31, 2024 |

I just returned from a busy week of work travel. I love meeting our CONQUER sisters when I travel and talking one-on-one with so many women who are freshly learning that they are co-equal image-bearers.

What Are You Doing In This Crisis?

By Leslie Vernick | March 18, 2020 |

Morning friends, Wow, how so much changes in a week. I am hunkered down here in Arizona, doing a fair amount of taking care of grandkids during this crisis of schools shutting down and everyone staying home.   It’s tempting to feel overwhelmed and scared and if you watch too much news that’s what will to happen.

Is This A Good Friendship?

By Leslie Vernick | March 4, 2020 |

Morning friends, I was hiking yesterday with a friend and we were talking about one of my favorite subjects, the importance of #doing your own work. The easiest thing to do when we are in distress is to blame someone else for it. The Bible is full of examples of blaming and avoiding responsibility. But at times my teaching about…

Morning friends, This week I’m traveling to Toronto, Canada for some meetings. It’s so beautiful here. I wish I could stay longer. I’ve loved Vancouver, BC when I vacationed there a few years ago. But I’ve never been to Montreal or Quebec, which are on my bucket list. I know we have a few Canadian friends here on this blog.…
