Women

Women, no matter the stage of life we are in, face challenges that are often specific to who they are and how God has designed them. West Hills Women’s Ministry seeks to equip, connect, and move women to spiritual maturity. We seek to glorify God and serve Him by teaching sound doctrine that trains and disciples women to know and apply God’s Word to all stages of life. Please take the time to look over these ministries and see where you might connect with other women in the body of Christ.

Anticipating Christ’s Return

Mothering by Heart – A Special Note From Gina

“Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life…even if I am being poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and share my joy with you all.”

Philippians 2:14‭-‬17

Covid has taken mothering to the next level, hasn’t it? And now many of us are becoming teachers and principles on top of it. What an opportunity for us to grow! “Mothering by heart” the ministry at West Hills has been replaced with “mothering by heart” in our homes. 

I don’t know about you, but my heart is all over these verses from Philippians. They seem so fitting for where I’m at in Covid. And because of God’s grace in my life I can do all my parenting and schooling without complaining or grumbling (it’s a work in progress, for sure). When I hold fast to the Word of Life I’m not only refreshed but I’m also empowered to keep moving forward (especially on those mornings its hard to get out of bed and face the day). And as moms, if we weren’t feeling “poured out as a drink offering” before Covid, how much more so now! Sometimes I feel completely empty, but even then, I can rejoice in my emptying because God is using it for the faith of my children. He is faithful to redeem my failings and use the good examples for His glory! 

We are so sad we cannot meet as a group at this time and encourage one another! We greatly missed our summer park days. And even though communication from us has been scarce (we’re moms trying to navigate these crazy times, too), know you are not forgotten. You are so loved and so cherished by our Lord! And you have a very special place in our hearts as a mom and friend in the same boat of life. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your table leader or me if you are in need of encouragement or anything else during these times! Also know that West Hills has pastors who are available for counseling. 

Don’t give up mamas! Let’s keep running this race with endurance together!!
