Chapter Three - Seeing God In Our Friendships

learned a professionalism that we need to understand. I think Christian women in business learn to integrate their spirituality into the world around them, while in ministry we tend to stay in this little bubble. We need to learn from them.

When I was on staff as a women’s minister at my church [[keep anonymous]], I used to think, ‘The people who are least reached in the church are the professional women.’ Why are we not reaching them? Professional women find outlets outside the church, and those women may be of more value on a board than some of the men.”

As a result of Alexandra’s worldwide ministry, countless professional Christian women have mentored friendships and enjoy deeper spiritual fulfillment with a greater understanding of God’s purpose in their lives.

Finding quality counseling takes time, but God provides what we need when we need it. It is important that whomever you learn from is working staying accountable to God. God doesn’t want us to hide behind the Bible or use our Christianity like alcohol.

The rooms of my 12-step recovery groups are filled with people coming from many diverse backgrounds and moral systems, but when we walk into the room, we work together for the same principles of living. This is the premise upon which we find our common ground and encourage each other.

It is the same as church; we all have different value systems. We all come from different walks of life, but we share the same desire: to know and love Jesus and each other in a deeper and more meaningful way.
