I do.

Lately, I've been privileged to listen to some sermons on marriage. It all started when Emily gave me information on her church Austin Stone's series on Marriage called From This Day Forward.

I listened to 3 out of 4 of the sermons and I was hooked. I was on fire to pass on the sermon information to anyone I knew who was married or single. I need to listen to the 4th when I have time. You can find the sermons here; look for the 4 sermons titled, "From This Day Forward". Seriously, single people~ you can benefit so much from these sermons. Emily and I are both single and we loved learning from these talks.


But tonight I heard an amazing talk. Kudos to John Piper for this talk titled, "The Beautiful Faith of Fearless Submission" whether you are a man or a woman you are going to want to hear this.

Piper speaks so much about not only marriage but being a woman of God. He says, "True womanhood is defined by hope in God, fearlessness, and inward adornment."

Here is the transcript: I hope you enjoy Also listen to it here if you like that better. I do.

Jamie, Yes, it is a BIG help that you write, Jamie O.
Usually I click on the name to see which blog I end up at.
Ha ha ha!
One time you signed Mrs. O and I was like, "who is that?" I was imaging someone older. It's funny that my friends are now Mrs.
I know that is silly to say but I often forget.
Thanks for the name clue. Appreciate it.
