Of all women, I Am Most Blessed! & a podcast with Joy

Conference 2016.JPG

Twenty-one years of Mom Heart Conferences was a highlight of our ministry through the years. 

Twenty-two years ago, Clay and I were together pondering our lives and the choices we had made along the way in our marriage. Having spent 3 years together in missions in Europe, and five years in church ministry, three in seminary, we were beginning to feel as though God wanted us to step out in faith to start our own ministry.

As we looked at the landscape of culture, we saw marriages falling apart, young adults leaving church and the faith they had been taught by the droves and the morality of adults becoming corrupted more each year.

Whole Heart Ministries Begins!

By faith, we left our church job, moved to a small country town in the middle of Texas and started "Whole Heart Ministries." As we look back on the story of our lives, we are deeply grateful and blessed to have been a part of what God wanted us to do in our lifetime in this world. 

And we are so very grateful for you! I am, like Mary, most blessed to have been able to walk this road and to have met and been encouraged by so many of you.

Thank You!

Every week, we receive letters, emails and messages from so many of you whose lives have been touched or changed in some way by our ministry. We are so very blessed by you and all the people who have engaged in this ministry with us and who have told us they have been changed and inspired through out messages. 

As we ponder the countless thousands who have engaged in our ministry through the years, through conferences, through the publishing and launching of 20 books and Bible study guides, the development of an online ministry, our blogs, podcasts, small group and international ministries, the Bible studies and conferences that are taking place all over the world, we are humbled by what God has done. 

But we could never have done it all without all of you who have responded, helped, worked side by side with us and supported our projects and ministry along the way. We thank you with all of our heart! Every year, about this time, we look back to remember just what God has done. 

As I mentioned above, 21 years of Mom Heart conferences all over the United States was one of the privileges of our lives. We loved meeting with so many sweet women who became dear friends and kindred spirits over the years.

 Books and messages have been at the heart of our ministry. We desire to help parents understand the biblical design of family, parenting and building a godly legacy. So far we have written   21 books and have 6 more comin  g out in the next couple of years! Stay tuned. (INCLUDING A NEW BOOK THAT CLAY MAINLY WROTE THAT WILL BE ONE YOU CAN SHARE WITH YOUR HUSBANDS--THE BOOK MANY HAVE ASKED US TO WRITE FOR MANY YEARS.)

 Because of my own background in discipleship, I have always wanted to build women into leaders so that they could create small groups that would support other women in their walks with God. We now have 2587 women in our greater Mom Heart Groups leadership and 341 in The UK, Ireland and Europe, as well as other groups all over the world who are studying our books in small groups. Go  here  to learn about them!

 Because we love the idea of providing support, instruction in leadership, inspiration for growing in Christ and a place where like-minded women can find fellowship and spiritual training, my wonderful friends and leaders have developed a monthly membership course that also has a Bible study on Hebrews, A story about a famous composer and the impact of his life and music, recipes, traditions, videos or podcasts and more. Hundreds of women have subscribed and we are hoping to build more community here with a forum and more live evening events just for our members to encourage them. The amazing women designing this course have all sorts of plans for inspiration on this site for 2018. Find more information about how to subscribe  HERE

 Clay and I have partnered together through 22 years of ministry, praying together about how we can reach more families with God's biblical message of building godly generations in our homes.

We have only been able to pursue this ministry through the years because of God's amazing faithfulness and because of so many friends, like you, who have supported Whole Heart Ministries financially, through working side by side with us and through your prayers. 

We hope many of you feel you have been helped and inspired by Whole Heart Ministries.

We would consider it such a blessing if you would consider supporting us financially as we dream in the years ahead of how we might reach more people with our messages. 

Thanks so much for all of your encouragement, your letters and love through all the years. We appreciate you!

DONATE HERE!

If God puts it on your heart to donate to our ministry, go here to do so. Thanks so much for your consideration.
