"And He (God) said, Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.
And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent (tore)
the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks
before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind;
and after the wind an earthquake,
but the Lord was not in the earthquake;
And after the earthquake a fire,
but the Lord was not in the fire;
and after the fire
a still, small voice.
When Elijah heard the voice, he wrapped his face in his mantle
and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave.
And behold, there came a voice to him and said, What are you doing here, Elijah?"
I Kings 19:11-13, Amplified Bible
We have so many voices talking to us, talking at us.
It can be confusing,
How do we know what to pay attention to? What to let go of?
"For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]."
Pilippians 4:8 Amplified Bible


We want to tune out the voices, the pictures, the influences that do not match God's Word.
His Word is our Road Map, our Map Quest, GPS!


God speaks to us through His Word, through The Holy Spirit,
through the authority figures in our life,
through family (parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents),
and Godly friends.
What do you do, if you have someone constantly saying gossipy,
hateful, untruthful, or just plain negative things?
You know...the kind of people that just leave you feeling like
you need a shower after you talk to them.
They make you feel guilty just for listening to them,
and they rob you of your faith and joy.
"Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency)
nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk,
nor coarse jesting, (dirty jokes or hints) which are not fitting or becoming;
but instead voice your thankfulness [to God]."
Ephesians 5:4 Amplified Bible


If you have people like this around you, Be Strong!

Take the Initiative (that means take the first action).

Tell them to shhh! And if they don't, then don't hang out with them.

Take them off your buddy or friends list.

Keep a good distance between you.

Because don't think they won't rub off on you!

"Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character."

1 Corinthians 15:33

If you tolerate them, listen to them

and think that it won't hurt you, because you don't want to hurt their feelings;

what will happen is,

it will bring you so far down mentally, emotionaly and spiritually,

you will start to be just like them.

Look out! Speak up for yourself! Be Strong!

Remember, Jesus lives in You, He makes you strong!
He NEVER Leaves you!
Be sure and leave a comment if you have any questions,

Pictures From Our Night of Pampering!

Hey, Girls!
How was your Christmas and New Years holiday?

I pray that you found a way to remember Christ, The One who watches over you and protects you, loves you and has great plans for you!

"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Jeremiah 29:11, New Living Translation (NLT)

"The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand.
My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater and mightier than all [else]; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of the Father's hand.
I and the Father are One."

John 10:27-3 Amplified Bible

Ok, I promised you pictures of the Big Night. When some of you beautiful young ladies were able to come and have a great time together, build Godly friendships, hear the Word of God from Pastor Mary and myself

and be girly!

Do you remember the toast you made with Pastor Mary, where you committed

to living as a Princess of God the Father?

To live pure, like Queen Esther?

Don't forget that promise to God!

Don't forget that


to live pure, live well, life a life of honesty, integrity, excellence and favor!

We have 150 (yes! 150) pictures, so, what I will do is every few days,

I will change the pics which I post...

Leave a comment if you do!

Pastor Mary and all of us were so proud of you,

and honored that you would come and let us treat you special,

and just have a good time with you!

I know you know this. But, it bears repeating in case the craziness of life made you forget. Everyone who helped with that night did it to MAKE SURE you know


You can check back here any day and see new stuff.

We will post articles, music videos. There will be links for cool websites that you might enjoy.

You can also leave your own comments for others to see, and when you do, you can make sure that you check the box for allowing all the follow up comments to be e-mailed to you!

We plan to make this a website that is fun and useful to your every day life. To help you stay close to Christ. To know how to make Him real in your life. To be a Christian in a crazy world.

This will be a place that is safe, people will treat you kindly and with respect. It is also a place you can come and be creative. You can e-mail me articles and if they fit the mission and purpose of Princess of Power I willpost them right here for everyone!

You can send your cool web finds & even pictures!

Here is something to remember til next post!

Making it Real & Taking it Home:
1. Pray for & be a Godly friend.

2. Surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you & love God & actually act like they love Him.

3. BE that person for others. DON”T be close to people who are not committed to your best.

4. Respect the authority God puts in your life. God will use them (even when you don’t like them) to protect you & shape you & guide you

5. Love the way God made you. Don’t compare yourself. Be the best at being you! Find the beauty you have & polish it! Make it shine!

I love you all! See you at church Thursday Night!

What is This All About?

On November 30, 2007, the young women from Family Worship Center,
Real Kids Church, With Pastor Mary Foust and her beauty crew
got together for a Special Event!
The Night was called Princesses of Power.
We learned about:
Queen Esther
Beauty Tips
How to Stay Close to God
We got glamor shots (if we wanted them).
We had a great dinner.
We ate from a chocolate fountain!
We got pedicures!
We are going to be learning more about Queen Esther and what God has to teach us from her examples.
Every 4th Thursday night our Devoted Hearts and Sunshine Daughters classes will get togehter for a real life beauty skill and a real life spiritual tip. Both will be inspired by the book of Esther and events which took place at this event.
I will post later on some of the things you can look forward to. We hope you will bring a friend if you want to.
