Becoming:: The Unfolding of You

by Edie Wadsworth on December 16, 2014


This January you are cordially invited to join 21 amazing women for an 8 week study all about finding your true identity in Christ.

I’m so  honored to be a part of this class and the best news is—it’s free!

Each week you will hear unfolding stories from the women in this study.

We will be sharing truths about who the Lord says we are and our personal journeys to accepting and living out these truths.

Jeanne has a video and I hope you will take a minute to hear her heart behind the course…


We will also have fun creative videos that follow the study where the women will share one of their gifts. Think guitar playing, bread making, painting, entertaining and more.  Our  hope is that the study will give you fresh eyes for the Lord and yourself.  When we know who we are in Christ it changes everything and opens our paths and gifts in incredible new ways.
Some of us are carrying around “truths” about ourselves that are flat out lies and it time to lay them down.

This study will be open and honest, real, Bible based and a bit of creativity too. 

To join this free study you just need to be registered at is free).

Once you are on the site you will find this study, free videos (business and art), Creativity Takes Courage series and new online courses along the left hand side of the page.

You will find all of our courses/videos under the COURSES heading.

Living Well Spending Less {TWO great resources in one!}

by Edie Wadsworth on December 14, 2014


I remember where I was sitting when she told me she her dream was to write a book & get it published within the next year.  At that time, she didn’t have an agent or a publisher or even a solid start to a book.  Eight months and so much hard work and anguish later,  we were sitting on my back porch catching up on life when she got the call from Zondervan that sealed her book deal.  We screamed and cried and celebrated together and could hardly believe what God had done in her life in such a short time.  I walked with her every step of the way, from the months of writing and editing to the months of planning the book’s release to the overwhelming emotion that comes with bearing part of your heart and soul to the world.  I am so proud of her, proud of this book, and am all teary eyed that the time has come for this dream to bless so many people.

What It Looks Like to Care

by Edie Wadsworth on December 8, 2014


What does caring look like?

It looks like a baby in manger who will become one of us to know our pain and sorrow.

It looks like Jewish boy who even at 12 years old knew the importance of His Father’s house.

It looks like a man whose days were filled with touching people and healing them and giving them life.

It looks so clearly like a cross, where One Man bore the collective guilt and shame of us all, trading His life for our ransom.

It looks like an empty tomb, where the resurrection of One Man sets the rest of us free.

And in turn, it looks like you, learning from Him and living your life for someone else in a ‘myriad of petty little unsexy ways everyday’.

Bless you today and blessed be the name of the Lord—the One whose caring changed the world.

A Heart of Hospitality

November 24, 2014

“Frodo was now safe in the Last Homely House east of the Sea. That house was, as Bilbo had long ago reported, ‘a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.’ Merely to be there was a cure […]

I have a confession to make.  I haven’t totally recovered from book writing.  Otherwise known as, I’m not on my A game right now.  Otherwise known as, I’m tempted to order Thanksgiving from Popeye’s. I’ve lost a good portion of my mojo and it’s taking its sweet time coming back.

The Place Where You Are Cared For

November 17, 2014

Every memory I have of her house is nearly the same—the morning’s bacon fat is hardening in the iron skillet, her handwritten list is on a spiral  steno pad topped with her reading glasses, the breakfast dishes are littering the sink and the smell of supper is already floating from the oven, her Bible is […]

Where Can the Anger Go?

November 9, 2014

“Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel of both the pain you are given and the pain you are […]
