An introduction…

“And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid arise.” (Luke 8:54)

Hello!  Welcome to Maid Arise!

This blog was created with the intention of going beyond the 10 chapters of my book Maid Arise! and continuing the encouragement that the 21st century maiden both needs and seeks.  Lynea and I desire to share our hearts with you, our trials and triumphs, and hopefully stir your maidenly heart toward His high calling.

There are many unmarried conservative Christian women unsure what to do with their lives — “stuck” between girlhood and marriage.  It is our desire to reach your hearts and give you encouragement on this path we both tread.

“Following means climbing. …Our Lord Jesus climbed the hilltops, both in His character and in His experiences. He wants us to share those rare hilltops with Him. He has gone away ahead of any other. …And in some of His experiences, He will ever remain the lone occupant of the hilltop. But He is eager for our companionship. He longs for the personal touch. He wants us to have all He has got. He has blazed a way through the thicket where there was no path before. He let the plain marks on the trees as He went through, so we could surely find the way. And now He eagerly beckons us to follow.” (Gordon 14-15)
