Diane Comer is the wife of one of our senior pastors at our church. She lost her hearing in her twenties as a young mom to several children. It was devastating to her, but God showed her through this trial that it is in her silence, that He speaks. It is worth the time to listen to her tell you her story.
In February she launched a website to encourage the women of our church to know God more intimately, to offer help in raising the next generation of Jesus-following kiddos, and to have a forum to share what God is putting on her heart. She is a beautiful writer and I have been blessed and challenged by her wisdom and her writing.
Two weeks ago, we launched a new facet of women's ministry called Not Your Own. I Corinthians 6:19-20 says, "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." We decided to put this truth into action and get the women of Solid Rock walking, jogging, and running to the finish line of a 10K and half-marathon on June 11th.
I get to do the majority of the writing for this ministry and I'm guessing my personal blog will fall into hiatus for a period while I shift my attention to this exciting ministry. Feel free to follow along at http://www.hespeaksinthesilence.com/category/not-your-own/ and if you're local, come join. We are already having so much fun!
