A woman of faith and unquenchable zeal...
Charmaine's is employed as a dental hygienist and has raised two adult boys, who are also active in the church. Her life experience has equipped her to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and compassionate toward people. She seeks to be in alignment with the will of God in every respect and endeavors to help others experience and have a growing relationship with God.
Charmaine is also one of the most creative and gifted people I know, kind hearted, humorous and able to think deeply about the scripture. Her vision for what the Women's Fellowship can be is something I pray every woman would embrace.
Charmaine Walker is the President of the Women's Fellowship..

1 Peter 3:3-4
“Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” (NLT)
Day by Day
Everyone seems to have an agenda for our lives—bosses, team leaders, clients, co-workers, friends, our children. Even Jesus had to work to maintain His focus in the midst of training followers, meeting needs, public speaking, demanding crowds, and a busy travel schedule. How did Jesus maintain His focus? He regularly made time to get away with His Father to talk things over. How do you maintain your focus?
At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them.—Luke 4:42
Prayer: Jesus, if You needed to take time with God to stay focused, then I know I need to make a point of spending time with God, too. Thank You for this reminder today. Help me to keep time with You at the top of my priorities. In Your Name, Amen.
Read: Proverbs 31:10-31
If this is a picture of a godly woman; which part is God not able to empower you to achieve? Why do we struggle with the best that God wants for us?
We All Have a Wilderness
When I’m caught in heavy traffic, I get excited when I remember a shortcut. It’s such a great feeling to jump off the interstate, hit a few side roads, and pass all those cars stalled in the rush-hour standstill.
But many times my brilliant idea is thwarted by highway engineers. My ingenious shortcut is suddenly sabotaged by construction, a roadblock, and then a detour that leads me through multiple turns right back to the interstate. I end up back where I started, forced to return to the traffic jam and go through it to get home.
It’s the same journey on our way to our promised land. Despite our best efforts to find alternate routes, there’s only one way to get there—through.
Even the children of Israel could have shaved some serious time off their trip. Going through was essential for them, but their trek through the wilderness was actually only an eleven-day journey. It didn’t have to take forty years, but in essence they chose that for themselves by fighting the process—grumbling, complaining, resisting the work God wanted to do in them.
We all have some version of the wilderness to go through. It’s a season that exposes how vulnerable we are, how defenseless we feel, how small we are in comparison to the wide expanse of this world. It’s how God prepares us to be well able to overcome the giants in our lives. It’s a place we cycle through over and over again in our lives—but in different areas—always getting freer and freer from shame each time.
It’s never a place we go looking for. But God is changing our thinking. He is leading, transforming, delivering, and freeing us. We just have to decide that where He leads, we will follow.
God’s goal for us is freedom, true spiritual freedom—a life no longer bound by the weights of shame’s false guilt and relentless regret, no longer haunted by shame’s fears and worries, no longer captive to shame’s old habits and self-protective responses that keep us repeating those same old shame-filled patterns.
God’s goal for us is not merely to change our circumstances—it is to change us! That is the evidence of His unconditional love for you and me.
Discover more of the freedom and shame-free life God has called you to live through Christine Caine’s new book, Unashamed.

The Power of a Praying Woman
While the scripture places a high premium on male leadership; history has been paved with the prayers of godly women. It is probably safe to say that if it were not for the prayers of those mothers and grandmothers, the disintegration of the family would be far worse and the frayed fabric of society would be completely undone. When you fight for your marriages and the salvation of your children, you'll begin to recognize that the battle is truly won on your knees. Prayer is a force to be reckoned with.
