A Woman's Call
Everyone have been called by God, but many wonder what God has called them to do in this season of their life. This message answers the questions: What does it mean to be called? And, how can one be faithful in what God has called them to do? Not everyone will function in professional ministry, but that does not mean that God has not called each person. Whether one is a single woman, wife, mother, or business owner she can fulfill her calling. Don't wait, but begin to walk in the calling of God today. God desires for His people to prosper in each season of their lives. Using her life experiences and over 22 years of leading women's ministries, Evelyn gives step-by-step instructions on how to walk in the calling of God.
Words have the power to impact a person's life, and therefore it is important for parents to speak words of wisdom and affirmation into their children's lives. Evelyn's father spoke into her life in an impactful way that shaped her identity. Many people have taken on false identities because of what someone said to them or labels that have been placed upon them. If someone is unsure of who they are they may seek validation from the wrong source(s). However, God wants His followers to seek Him. He created them and wants them to know who they are in Him. The purpose of this message is to teach believers how to dismiss the noises of life and discover one's true identity in God. The absence of an earthly father does not disqualify one from receiving affirmation from the Heavenly Father through the Word of God.
Seven Blessing Blockers
"Mom, you will never move forward as long as you are looking back," these words were spoken by Evelyn's young daughter. Many people feel stuck and respond by blaming others. However, it is important to do a self-examination and evaluate one's own role in their present circumstance. Reaping the promises of God requires obediences. Walking in fear, and holding onto the past can prevent one from moving forward. This message speaks to the hindrances that keep believers feeling as if they are in a holding pattern. It also teaches how to adjust one's attitude so that they can walk in the joy of the Lord. The "joy of the Lord is our strength." As people live in the joy of the Lord they can live a life of freedom and thanksgiving. It is time for God's people to stop simply professing the promises of God and to start possessing them.
The Heart of A Caregiver
Evelyn shares her personal journey as caregiver for her husband for nearly a decade. Caregivers are often the invisible victim and suffer in silence while feeling emotionally conflicted. This message will empower caregivers by helping them to understand that not only what they do is valuable but who they are has value as well. The caregiver will receive the tools that are needed to continue to care for a loved one. The caregiver will be inspired and encouraged. Those who know caregivers will receive valuable information about how they can assist. Self-care is necessary to care for others. Learning to tap into available resources can be a lifesaving for the caregiver. The caregiver is taught how to care for a loved one in a way that honors them and honors God without diminishing the caregiver's own self-worth in the process.
Process to Wholeness
Many believers face feelings of inadequacy. They take two steps forward yet feel as though they are being knocked back three. God wants His people free from anything keeping them in bondage. Despite life's challenges there is deliverance available for the people of God. However, deliverance is most often a process. Many seek to avoid the stages to complete deliverance and do not receive everything that God has for them. There is much to be learned in the processing phase, and nothing is wasted with God. This message will walk believers through the steps to total restoration where they can walk in freedom and purpose. After years of fighting the process Evelyn discovered valuable lessons in going through the process.
