Daily Devotion – Living the Words that We Preach

Seems like this past week was a write off for me. With one phone call after another, one visitor after another, one appointment after another… I hardly had time to focus on my ministry at Time-Warp Wife.

With a bit of time and a little nudge from the Holy Spirit on my heart however, it finally made sense. These weren’t interruptions to my ministry, this is my ministry.

I’m learning that every interruption and every person that God sends my way, is an opportunity to share the love of Christ.

It’s a good thing to set our minds on things above, but we must also remember to give our hands and our hearts when they’re needed below.

If we’re not living the words that we preach, and loving that ones that we teach, then we have a lot of growing to do when it comes to sharing our faith.

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.

She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.

It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical FitnessReshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.

Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at
