If you would have asked me where I thought Titus II Woman Ministry would be about a year ago I would not have answered in this way. God has amazed me in ways that I never thought possible. Titus II was a dream that I never thought doable alone, but when God says to do something you don’t want to say no. You would miss so many blessings that He has prepared.
Titus II launched in September of 2014 and in less than a year we are already at the publishing of our 100th article. That is no small feat. It has taken many hours of writing, editing, praying, crying, encouraging and writer’s block to get to where we are today. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined having a team of twenty six writers to start this out. The commitment and dedication that these writers have shown has been beyond measure and hearts have been spoken to in the quiet of their home, office, or study.
We started with the goal of putting out two articles a week and we have not missed a single one. In fact, several weeks we have posted three or more articles. Soon the dream of writing led into speaking. Several writers felt that God was asking more of them, including me, and soon we had a team of eight women who formed the speaking team and it didn’t take God long to open doors for travel to places for these women to share their hearts and encourage women in the United States. Our first big event is this August in Southeast Alaska on the only reservation in the state. Three of Titus II’s speakers will be traveling to this small island and speaking at a three day event and then ministering to a congregation that Sunday with music and Word. Ya’all, that is just like God! I had no hand in setting in motion all that has happened for Titus II Woman this past year. I just prayed that God would move hearts and send us exactly what we needed when we needed it.
So, here we are at our 100th article and I want to share with you some things that have been shared with us through our web site, email and Facebook page. This is proof that even if you don’t feel like you are doing anything, God is doing something. He moves!
“This article was written for my poor overwhelmed heart. I sat and cried as I read the words. It is so nice to know that I am not alone.”
“This touched me so much today. It’s a daily struggle for me, to not only forgive others, but to forgive myself. Thank you for this! You are such a blessing to so many!!!!!!!”
“i was seriously just asking the Lord how I can honor a family member. Thank you!”
“Sometimes it’s the hard things worked through that make the peace so much more enjoyable.” Love it! So true. Thank you Tara. :)”
And there are so many more comments on the blog page.
I received an email from a follower of the blog stating how encouraged she had been by all the writers. She had been praying for help in parenting, following God’s lead, and being a better person as not only a wife and mother, but as a friend. She found it in our writing. She also hopes that Tii will have our very own conference one day soon so she can attend.
Titus II Woman gets likes and reposts and comments every single day on the Facebook page. It has been one of the biggest ways to share the articles and reach women. Our hearts have been overwhelmed with the love and support that Tii has been shown by all the writers, speakers and followers.
I had gotten to a point where I, as the founder and leader, wasn’t feeling like I was even making a difference and questioned if I should even keep going with Tii. That very same day one of my writers sent me a message to encourage me because she felt God telling her to do so. Her words reassured me that I was in the will of God and doing exactly what I was meant to do at this time in life. She shared with me that her massage therapist had been reading the blog postings and was greatly encouraged. My heart was uplifted and I felt renewed again. God is working and has great plans.
Coming up with Titus II Woman will be many new adventures. We are starting to develop a quarterly newsletter that can be sent out by email and will also be posted to the web site and FB page. We have some speaking engagements in the works here in the United States and we are looking to add more writers and expand the blog to at least three articles a week this next year. We are currently opening the search for new writers at various commitment levels and booking speaking engagements all over the U.S. where our speakers can be used even more by God. This has been a great first year full of blessings and adventures and we are all looking forward to next year and seeing what God has in store.
Please continue to pray with us for the ministry of Titus II Woman and THANK YOU for supporting us this first year. We love and appreciate every single one of you!
