I once read that we tend to recognize a person’s body language before we recognize their face. We’re defined from a distance by the way we hold our shoulders, tilt our heads, and move our legs. I know this to be true as I can spot my husband from afar off long before I can clearly see his face. I don’t know exactly what it is I recognize, but I’m certain that it’s him.
As children of God, the same should be true of our spiritual language–as actions speak louder than words.
I need to stand out from the crowd, not because of who I am, but because I’m reflecting the person He is. When others see me, I want them to recognize Christ from afar. I want them to see Him in the way that I live, the way that I give, the way that I love, and the way I forgive. I want them to see Him before they see me.

Tilling the Soil
Empty yourself of anything that might be holding you back from serving God. Allow Him to lead in every area of your life.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

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 Fitness. Reshaping 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 TimeWarpWife.com.
