Joanne Holstein’s newest women’s study, What does it take to change? We have focused a good deal with the question of if the Philippians slave girl had changed once Paul commanded the spirit of divination from her. What does it take to change is the question I am asking. It is not a miraculous “poof” and the change happens and a life is on a better track. There has to be a desire and a dedication for change to occur. (Philippians 3:20-21)

This is where Jesus went up on a mountain and appeared with Moses and Elijah. The disciples, Peter, James and John had witnessed the Transfiguration of Jesus. The disciples who stayed at the base of the mountain had encountered a problem casting out a demon. Jesus rebuked the demon and it came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly. When His disciples asked Him why they could not cast out the demon, He said to them “This kind can come out only through prayer.” (Matthew 17:14-21; Mark 9:17-29; Luke 9:37-42)
Joanne Holstein has placed her newest lesson “When I was a Child, I Spake as a Child” online. It is helpful to understand the different stages of development of a child. It is in nurturing our children today that is going to influence Christianity tomorrow. It is with this understanding that Women of Christ can guide and nurture our children to speak, understand, and believe in a living Lord Jesus Christ and serve Him in their full capacity once they have put away childish things and embraced their adult journey with Him and for Him. (1 Corinthians 13:11)
