Infertility

Heart of the Matter: Infertility

Cynthia: This is Cynthia with Heart of the Matter radio, for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. In Genesis God gave the creation mandate for husbands and wives to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. And women have a strong need to nurture. It’s our fondest dreams to bear a child and to be a mommy. But there are times when that doesn’t work very well.

Heart of the Matter: Live a Praying Life

Cynthia: This is Cynthia with Heart of the Matter radio, for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. We have a personal God, and he wants us to pray. I love the passage in Ephesians 3:20, he is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us. But sometimes we struggle with prayer and we feel as if perhaps we’re ineffective. Today I have Jennifer Kennedy Dean and she’s taught on prayer for 30 years, and she’s written Live A Praying Life.

God and Your Emotions

Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, "Seek my face." My heart says to you, "Your face, LORD, do I seek."  Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation! Ps 27: 7 -9 Have you ever made demands of God? Most Christians look away when I ask that question.

Blended Family

  My gaze wandered over the ruddy man Mother and Granny chatted with. Who was he? Could I trust him? Only a few weeks ago he invaded our family when he married my grandmother, but I didn’t open up to just anyone. Even at age five, they had to earn my confidence. This burly man hadn’t. “Welcome, Cindy.” Alvin Cofer grabbed me and hugged hard. One strike against the man. I prefered to keep my distance for awhile, check things out. Could it be that this man was really safe? Mother smiled, as if it was normal to be snatched...

#HeartMtr: The Heartbreak of Divorce

Cynthia: This is Cynthia with Heart of the Matter Radio, for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. In Malachi 2:16 God says I hate divorce, and in Matthew 9:7 Jesus said he allowed divorce because of the hardness of the Israelites’ heart. Divorce is not a good idea, yet it happens. Women are abandoned or even abused. How can we recover when we experience this heartache? I have today Michelle Borquez with me.

#HeartMtr: The Digital Invasion

Cynthia: This is Cynthia, with Heart of the Matter radio, for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. 1 Peter 4:7 says “be of sound mind for the purpose of prayer”, and that word sound mind has to do with being sober, being in your right mind, as opposed to being thrown out of place. Today we are absolutely barraged with media from every direction. Cell phones, texting, instant message, Skype, Facebook. At times it seems as if we can’t have a moment of silence.

Heart of the Matter: Homeschool as a Lifestyle

Cynthia: This is Cynthia with Heart of the Matter broadcast, for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. School has started and mothers out there are sending off their kids, but some mothers are doing it at home. And I want to address those moms at home today, because I know how heavy the responsibility felt for me as I started back to school. I always feel, in the summertime, like I had enough just running my house and when I had to restart school I just felt oppressed a little bit. But I wanted...

Heart of the Matter: Unexpected Love

Cynthia: This is Cynthia with Heart of the Matter broadcast, for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. Many believe that Christianity oppresses women, that it keeps us from our freedom. In fact, in Jesus’ day, Jews used to praise God that they weren’t born a woman. But what does the Bible say? I have Julie Coleman here with me today and Julie has just written a book that I just love, and it’s called Unexpected Love: God’s Heart Revealed in Jesus’ Conversations With Women.

Heart of the Matter: Grief and God’s Will

Cynthia: This is Cynthia, with Heart of the Matter broadcast for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. Paul wrote to the Thessalonian church that they should not grieve as the world grieves. Today, we’re going to explore what that means. Many believers are seriously concerned, and even frightened, as we see the changes happening so rapidly in our world. How can we grieve as God would have us to?

Heart of the Matter: Kathy Howard and Flat Faith

Cynthia interviews Kathy Howard about what it means to avoid flat faith. Cynthia: This is Cynthia, with Heart of the Matter podcast, for women who want to obey God in a less than perfect world. In Philippians 1 Paul describes himself as a slave, some translations say bondslave, of Jesus Christ. Totally committed to Christ. Today in America we seldom describe ourselves that way, even though we would call ourselves Christians who follow Christ.

Marriage: A Lifetime of Love

Wow! After Mom died, I found a Loveman’s box in the bottom of her cedar chest. (In Chattanooga, Loveman’s was an exclusive store.) Mom wrapped contents in tissue, and I was thrilled so see what she valued so much. As I eased back the crinkly paper, Mom’s wedding dress lay on the top. A fancy white nightgown along with an elegant slip, lacy panties, and matching bra lay underneath. What a treasure.

Needing Rebirth

I’m sick of cold weather. This time of year trees should sprout and roses develop buds. But more than anything, I’m weary of the spiritual darkness that’s enveloping this nation. We desperately need a spiritual spring time. Just as surely as God makes the sap rise in the trees and the grass start to grow, he’s at work in his church.  For example, in the late 1600s a minister named Samuel preached, taught and prayed with diligence. Every ounce of his soul longed for revival and he brought that desire before the Lord each day. The people of his parish...
