A Beacon On A Hill

You, my sister stand tall and shine in a place of prominence in the spirit realm. Now is the time to use your authority and power to move heaven and earth with your prayers. Just as a beacon stands on a hill to serve as a guide or to notify the approach of an enemy, you stand in the place of prayer to facilitate His kingdom come His will be done.

Are you ready to move to the next level? Do you desire to Shine consistently?  Deepen your walk with God as you learn to identify and deal with hinderances that keep your light from shining fully.  It's time to Light It Up! Let your light shine and reflect Jesus for the lost.  Truly shine as God destined.  Let's uncover and eliminate obstacles that is keeping you from "lighting it up."

Ephesians 2:10 says Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Each one of God’s creation was given a gift that is intended to be used for His glory. For so many of us, we do not consider the gift of creativity one to be used to reflect the light of Christ. You have been endowed by our Creator, discover how your gift of creativity can be used for His glory.

Create a "Rock Steady" marriage that shines . . . without fumbling faking or forgetting your roles as a wife!  

Learn how to maximize your effectiveness and contribution to the kingdom of God as leaders in the kingdom of God.  While you are pouring out to others, who's pouring into you?  Come be recharged with relevant knowledge, skills and tools that will keep you charge as you allow others to tap into your power source.

God has a purpose for each stage of your life, but in a culture where youth is venerated, and aging is resisted it is easy for those who can no longer identify with being young to question their usefulness.
