I love spreading the encouragement of Christ, so take a few minutes and listen to this interview between me and Nancy Leigh DeMoss during the recent True Woman 2012 Conference in Indianapolis. When I think of the many hurting people who are struggling and looking for encouragement, I think of these words from the Heidelberg Confession: “My comfort in life and in death… is that I am not my own, but belong—both body and soul, in life and in death—to my faithful Savior...who preserves me so much that, without the will of my Heavenly Father, not one hair can fall from my head.” Join me in thanking God that you and I can shine the light of Christ all the more brightly through the fiery trials He sends!

Just viewed this video and was reminded once again how much I admire you. You are such an inspiration to so many and I just bubble over whenever I talk about you to others. You have such strength and courage and I am so blessed to be able to give to your ministry and see all the ways people come to know the Lord through one submissive woman. I will continue to pray for you & Ken and can't wait to read your new book and add it to the other 11 that I have. May God bless you richly for all you do.

Wow! I just watched this video and felt like I had just spent an hour with you in my living room! Thank you for being so transparent and real. Jesus just shines from you like a beacon! I have followed your story from the beginning. You are such a blessing! You are one I wish lived next door! :-) Thank you for the encouragement to embrace the trials and problems and trust God with the outcome. He is sovereign and loves us more than we can know. May God bless you with joy and peace this week and always!

Hi Joni, Thanks so much for posting this interview. It was such an encouragement to me. Thank you for being so transparent and real about your journey. You remind me often to remember that it is not in my strength, or my determination, but in His Strength and through His Grace that I will fulfil my God-given purpose and bring Him Glory. God bless.
