What To Do First to Make a Profit

The PF Women Team at our Annual Team Retreat  ~ 2018 Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said: It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way. Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory! I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started inve

Why I'm glad my husband wears Nike's


Okay, so this week I found what I consider to be an incredible turnoff…

“Meels”.

What are they? Heels for men.

I am NOT KIDDING. The picture here is REAL and this is a MALE. I hesitate to say man, because…to me a man is, well…a MAN, with a capital “M”. This guy here is really trying to make a male fashion statement - he is not a cross dresser, at least not in the true sense of the word.

What was this designer thinking? In case you are wondering, “Meels” are the latest fashion creation to hit the market, and they were created by a designer, Marjan Pejoski, who is hoping this idea catches on for men worldwide. I can say that excites me about as much as sliding down a razor blade into a vat of alcohol. Yikes!

You know, I consider myself to be a real adventurous, liberated type gal, the kind that wears five earrings in my ears, wild colors of nail polish (usually with designs on at least one of my toes/fingers), walks around my house in just a t-shirt and underwear most of the time if it's just my family, and if the kids aren't home, even less. (Is that TMI?) and a (gasp!) bikini on the beach occasionally. (Note: this is not very scandalous, for a pastor’s wife in Florida.) However…meels? No, no no. Absolutely NOT.

Men need to be…men. And no matter how fashion changes, I am sorry I just cannot accept a man in heels at least not without bursting out laughing at the sight of them.

You know, from time to time I have wanted a more “sensitive” type guy. I have wished my husband was a little more “metro”, a little more the emotional type. Sometimes I’ve thought, “why can’t he be a little more like me?” But now that I’ve seen meels? I’ll take my Nike-wearing, starter jacket wearing, sweaty, even keeled, unemotional macho man ANY DAY of the week.

Honestly, my husband’s heart starts beating faster with excitement when he sees me in a pair of heels, but if I saw him in a pair? I think I’d have a heart attack and die. What in the world was this designer thinking? I can’t imagine any women liking this.

What do you think? Women, would there be ANY attraction in this for you at all?

Uh...no. I married my husband so I could share my life with him. Not my shoes!! I wouldn't even wear heels that high...
lady sutton, I'm hollering over here! I know that's right! I wear the heels in this relationship!
I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this is TOTALLY gross!

As for me, I love to wear heels myself...they make me feel extremely feminine, which is one reason I could not handle them on a man.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at http://www.perrynoble.com/ ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
