April Motl is a pastor’s wife who loves to laugh, loves her man, loves to talk on the phone entirely too long and most of all, loves her Lord. Collaborating with the joint efforts of her husband Eric, the two of them share a ministry dedicated to bringing God’s Word into the everyday lives of married couples, men and women. April writes and teaches for women. When she’s not tapping away at the computer writing, or trying to catch up with the laundry and dishes, she is busy serving as a pastor’s wife. April has been privileged through her own church and ministry outside her local body to share God's Word with women ranging in ages and stages, across denominations, and walks of life. Her passion is to bring God's liberating truth to His Beloved. She teaches God's Word with real life illustrations, humor and practical application. April is a graduate from Southern California Seminary (MRS) and has written for Just Between Us Magazine, Dayspring's (In)courage, and The Secret Place and also writes regularly for crosswalk.com.

Marriage Expert Q & A

Conflict, In-Laws & Finances - Pam & Bill Farrel answer your marriage questions

A Picture of Discipleship

Like Lazarus, we've been called out from the grave, but are still wrapped in our old grave clothes. Discipleship is the process of unwrapping us into the newness of life Christ called us to...

In Christ

Our life holds many experiences, opinions of others and memories that can meld together to reflect our identity and value to us. But shouldn't that place as "Definer" go only to our Creator?

My Favorite Time & Money Saving Tool

As the Fall approaches and our family schedule has started to overflow, I realized it was time re-employ my favorite time and money saving strategy!

Refreshing Your Heart for Your Husband

Could your “wifing” use some refreshing? Here's a little encouragement and a book give-away just for YOU!

Plans, Husbands and a give-away

I've learned from sharing life with my easy-going-spontaneous man that plans should never take precedence over God's direction or people - something that requires a sensitivity that "plans" are often deaf to.

Running the Race

The "cloud of witnesses" didn’t run the race of faith so well because they were particularly “good” or gifted or special. But because they cemented their focus on Christ...

Encouraging Word for Singles

Whether you are single right now, or are involved with a single friend or singles ministry, today's give-away is a great resource and blessing!

A Woman of Influence & Summer Give-Away

If God could use 12 men to change the world, surely one generation of truly impassioned, consecrated followers of Christ could change the world too!

Freedom

Our freedoms have not been entrusted to us just for our pleasure, but for a great purpose... Is God calling you to be part of His heart for His children's freedom?

Oh! The Things You Can Think!

Responsibilities, entertainment, distractions, worries, memories and more compete for our brain space. Thankfully, God gives us direction so we can order our thoughts, instead of our thoughts ordering us!

When You Walk By The Way...

You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. Deuteronomy 6:7

When God is Silent

Have you ever felt like God was ignoring you or didn't care about your situation?

Change

Why Becoming Holy Hinges on Change

An Example and an Invitation

Glimpses into the passion of Jesus Prayer life and the invitation He holds out to us

The Big IF - Faith, Wishes and Babies

"Just have faith"... is a common phrase we use to encourage one another - but what does it really mean?

Who's Your Jesus?

Everyone in the "palm Sunday" crowd had a motivation for singing Jesus praises - what's yours?

Day and Night

When I am meditating on the worries of life, they have me - from the inside out. But when God’s word fills that space, the whole world looks different.

Words of Life as a Habit for Life

If your doctor prescribed medication to you, you wouldn’t expect to get better unless you actually took the prescription. Reading the Bible is kind of like a heavenly prescription! God’s Word changes our life, directs our paths, gives us wisdom for hard times, encourages our hearts when we are down, satisfies the weary places within us and much more. But we have to swallow it if we want it to work!

What Hinders You?

If you have came to an impasse with more faith questions than answers, you’re not alone.
