Attention all those trying to navigate the waters of marriage and ministry...


My dear friend, Pastor Lisa Alexander has written a book which is being released March 16! I encourage you to take advantage of this great resource.

Following is the press release concerning her book, "Marriage and Ministry."

The continued number of high-profile divorce cases among Christian leaders continues to chip away at the fabric of the church. Author, wife and co-pastor Lisa N. Alexander in her debut ebook, Marriage and Ministry: Successfully Working Marriage, Family and Ministry Together serves as a go-to guide for couples who serve in ministry. She shares God's ideal plan for sustaining both the marriage and the ministry and shares practical truths learned over 20 years of marriage.

Leadership coach and minister Karen M. Pina of GOD's Coach says, “This literary piece . . . teaches how to have a marriage, family, and ministry that glorifies God and brings understanding to the purpose of marriage.”

This book also “. . .corrects marriages that are out of order and convicts out of order marriages to get back in order,” Pina states.

“The ebook is written from a loving place and I hope readers can sense my genuine concern about their ministry and marriage and my sincere desire for both to succeed,” says Alexander.

The ebook Marriage and Ministry: Successfully Working Marriage, Family and Ministry Together covers such topics as:

Which Comes First…Marriage or Ministry?
Power is Attractive. It’s Outright Sexy!
Healthy Marriage, Healthy Ministry
How to Rear the Un-stereotypical Preacher’s Kid

Bio: Pastor Lisa N. Alexander creates for the printed and electronic page. Whether she's merging photo and copy for a brochure or contributing to blogs and magazines; her passion always leads her back to the same blank page to create something worthwhile. Her first ebook, Marriage and Ministry is a worthwhile project borne from her 20 plus years of marriage and time spent serving in ministry. She currently serves as pastor along with her husband Elgin Alexander of the Zion Tabernacle Christian Church in Houston, TX.

Will be available to purchase as an ebook on March 16 at http://www.ellisvalin.com/. Price is $9.99.

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

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

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
