Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith


In our me-first culture it is difficult to move against that system and put others' needs before our own wants. Yet we follow a Savior who said, "Not my will, but yours, God." The daily act of submission means we continually refine an attitude of "yes, Lord," in our relationship with him and with others. We sacrifice our need to be in control and allow ourselves to be placed under the wisdom of those who will mentor and challenge us and nurture our growth.
