1. My Favorite Blog of All Time

    February 5, 2014 by Paul Chappell


    I’m thrilled to announce that my wife, Terrie, has launched a personal blog!

    For over thirty years, Terrie has invested in ladies through personal, local church ministry. Her blog—the overflow of these years of ministry—is sure to be a blessing, help, and encouragement.

    Terrie is a student of the Word of God and the godliest Christian I know. Her scriptural insights and spiritual walk are a challenge and encouragement to me…and I know they will be to you as well.

    So, head over to TerrieChappell.com for some practical, spiritual encouragement including ladies’ ministry resources, recommended reading, and her very first blog posts.

    fresh approach to life stewardship

    It seems that everywhere I go I get asked similar questions:

    • How do you organize your life?
    • How do you plan your time?
    • How do you determine your priorities?

    These are excellent questions—questions, in fact, to which I’ve sought answers for years.
