Faith for Christians

Hello Readers,

I wanted to share a new revelation with you. It's something I discovered after meditating on John chapter 6 - regarding Jesus' statement, "I am the bread of life." My prayer is that you will contemplate this as well and gain new understanding of the Kingdom of God.

I've discovered that believing is the same process as eating. Sound strange? Here's more:

Step 1 of believing - something is presented (an idea, concept, statement from someone, etc.).
Step 1 of eating - something is presented (a menu, grocery shopping, a meal on a table, etc.).

Step 2 of believing - we take in and accept what has been presented in our heart, mind & spirit.
Step 2 of eating - we take the food in (consume).

Step 3 of believing - this new belief weaves itself into our being - it becomes a part of us.
Step 3 of eating - this food becomes a part of us physically, and either nourishes or harms us.

Step 4 of believing - beliefs should be tested and refined by the Word of God - the Bible. If anything is found to be false, it should be removed.
Step 4 of eating - any "waste" food that has been found to be unnecessary is refined out and eliminated

Believing, of course, is in the spiritual, emotional and mental realms. Eating is physical. However, I have noticed that many times God's principles work the same way spiritually, as things in the natural world do. When Jesus was saying "This is [I am] the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever," He was talking about taking Himself (Jesus) in - BELIEVING and trusting in His name. It is accepting within ourselves His wisdom and salvation and making it a part of us. The bread of life (Jesus) nourishes us.

When we take communion, we remember the words that Jesus spoke, "This is my body, broken for you...Do this in remembrance of Me." His body was broken for us, just like food is as it goes in. His broken body nourishes us, and His blood washes us clean. Without physical nourishment, our bodies get weak and die. Without the life nourishment Jesus gives, our spirits become dead.
Eating and believing are the same. What are you going to eat today? What is going into your soul and staying? Physically and spiritually, let's feed on healthy food.

Greetings Women of God! We are re-posting this post. In just two weeks, we'll be at this business event. If you are interested in attending as well, there is still time to register. Here is our original post:

We want to share something that you may be interested in knowing about.

Coming up in early November, Tammy and I are attending a very interesting business conference in Las Vegas, full of entrepreneurs from around the world. Although this is not a Christian or faith-based event (and Las Vegas isn't our most favorite place), the business knowledge and strategies that will be shared here will be nothing short of AMAZING.

If you are a small business owner, solo-entrepreneur, internet marketer, coach, consultant, etc., please consider coming with us. It is an investment, but it is ALWAYS worthwhile to spend money, time and effort to gain the necessary knowledge you need to succeed and to "get wisdom", as the Bible implores. The knowledge here will be strictly business focused, but how many know that is imperative knowledge for us as Christian business women to have!! Mentors and people who have already "been there, done that" help us get from here to there in less time, avoiding more pitfalls, give us ideas, and provide encouragement and a clear path.

When you have a spare few minutes, click the graphic below, then watch the video that comes up on that page.

We encourage each of you to use savvy, sound business practices combined with the power and principles in God's Word. Keep in mind while watching, that this is a secular event, advertising in a money-focused way. While money is nice to have, it's not the main reason why we do what we do, and we bet many of you feel the same. However, we want to do what we do in the most effective way possible, influencing, reaching and helping as many people as we possibly can. We're sure you share that same desire.

Want to come? If you feel compelled to gain this kind of knowledge, gain some new business ideas and strategies and meet other successful business owners, join us at "shine!"

Blessings to you,
Krista & Tammy

Email Newsletters - Do You Send One?

Hello Christian Business Women,

We have a question for you. Do you have clients, customers or business contacts? If so, do you regularly keep in touch with them to let them know about specials, new services or to build relationships with them?

If not...(or maybe even if you answered 'yes') you might want to consider starting an e-newsletter, sometimes also called an ezine. At Koinonia Business Women, we have our ezine called *BLING* that we send out twice a month. People opt-in to receive it via email at our website, and our list management system does the rest.

This is the company we use to manage our ezine and would recommend to you:

There are so many reasons why having an e-newsletter is a great idea. Here are a couple of thoughts about them:
  1. Email is a non-invasive way to contact the people you want to reach.
  2. Newsletters accomplish several things, including building familiarity and trust.
  3. Once you have a template set up, changing content becomes quick and easy.
  4. Be respectful - Don't sign people up without their permission. That's called spamming!!

iContact even offers a free trial to test it out! That's how we started. Learn more here:

Just another way for you to be business, marketing and tech savvy!

Intimate Conversations

Hello Readers,
We're doing another book review today. Revell Books sends us books to read from time-to-time, and they've all been excellent thus far. This one is no different! Today, we're discussing a book by Alicia Britt Chole, called "Intimate Conversations."

The tag line of this book is "Devotions to Nurture a Woman's Soul." I believe it accomplishes that well! Alicia uses many personal lessons learned and real stories to convey Spiritual revelation that God has given her. Because the information is so rich, the temptation with this book is to read it like a book rather than a devotional - just one section daily.

Here are a few examples of some powerful thoughts Alicia shares:
"Our culture injects us with strong doses of dissatisfaction.....Spend a few moments intentionally evaluating your life from the perspective of what you have been given, not what you have yet to get; from the perspective of what currently is good, not by what good you are still waiting for."

She tells a story of the cows next door straining to each the grass in her yard through the barbed wire fences (which is no different than their own grass), and says, "They wound themselves by pressing past boundaries their master has set for them."

When her son was diagnosed by doctors as "special needs," she shared these thoughts, "I too have 'special needs.' I need to be more like my special son...Each one of us has special needs, areas where we are painfully aware of our own weakness....those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable."

All-in-all, this book is a great read. What she brings to the reader is authenticity and heart. Take time to read this book and "chew" on its meat - If you can keep yourself reading each devotional topic, just one at a time! Nice work Alicia Britt Chole! Thank you...
