I grew up listening to Revive Our Hearts because my mom listened every day, and now I listen daily myself. The ministry is a huge blessing to me as a wife and new mother, especially this past year and a half where I found myself going through some sudden and very hard trials. There were days I didn’t know how I could go on. That’s when I listened to Nancy talk about facing hardships. I wrote down some of the quotes and read them over and over:
"God is good even when I don’t feel like He’s good."
"I can trust God to write my story."
"Anything that makes me need God is a blessing."
I also memorized many Bible verses to help me through the darkest nights. While my trials aren’t over, I know that God will never leave or forsake me. —Kathrina
Updates from Nancy
Congratulations, Nancy! On May 21, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth was presented a Doctorate of Humane Letters, honoris causa, from Taylor University, a Christian liberal arts university in Upland, Indiana. At the commencement ceremony, Nancy spoke to Taylor's graduating class, urging them to treasure the Bible—"to read it, to study it, to memorize it, to marinate in it, to master it"—and to let it master them. For more of Nancy's advice to the graduates and other details about this special day, check out the blog post, "One Woman Who's Making a Difference."
Nancy is working diligently toward two major writing deadlines. She continues to journal through the Bible (She's now in 1 Peter!) and to work with the editorial team at LifeWay Bible Publishers. The plan is for this new devotional study Bible with content based on Nancy's journals to be made available in 2025. Nancy is also in the middle of developing the Incomparable manuscript. Her hope is to submit the fifty-day devotional to Moody Publishers next month.
As Nancy presses forward to complete these projects, will you ask God to give her wisdom, stamina, and fresh insight from His Word?
Praise with Us
Praise God! By His grace, May donations exceeded our fiscal year-end goal. As Nancy shared in her video update, “This is going to enable us in the year ahead to get the Word out to more women, to more hearts, in more homes, in more places throughout the world, all for the glory of God.” Thank you!
In the Studio
Praise God for an impactful time in His Word in the Revive Our Hearts studio! On June 3, Nancy recorded five new programs in front of an audience of dear ministry friends and partners. Lord willing, these new episodes, which feature lessons from the life of Lydia in Acts 16 and truth from Ephesians 6, will air in the coming months.
Pray for Nancy and the ROH team as they prepare for another recording day on June 24. Ask God to use these sessions to transform the lives of all who hear the teaching from His Word: those who are in the studio and those who discover the programs in years to come! (If you live in the area, you can sign up to join Nancy in the studio here.)
Life-Giving Ambassador Summit
Last month, thirty-eight ambassadors and leaders—with several more watching online—came together at Life Action Camp for the seventh annual Ambassador Summit. It was a life-giving time of fellowship, team-building, training, spiritual development, and fun. The Ambassadors heard messages and updates from Nancy and other Revive Our Hearts/Life Action Ministries staff, and took time to connect and pray with each other. It was especially encouraging to hear testimonies of how God has been working through their connections with pastors’ wives and women’s ministry leaders. We are grateful for this annual opportunity to help our Ambassadors recharge, reconnect, and refuel together.
God definitely confirmed my calling to this ministry. He reminded me that even when I can’t see it, He is working. The “God at work” stories were a true testament to the work He is doing with the Ambassadors. He humbled me and strengthened me and encouraged me through each person at the summit. So thankful for this opportunity. —Kayce, Ambassador
The Whole Bible in 72 Hours
What would it look like to read the Bible out loud in one sitting? Revive Our Hearts South Africa (along with three other women’s ministries) set out to make it happen, and they were joined by people all across the globe! They hosted the Bible Read-A-Thon, reading from Genesis to Revelation online, nonstop, over the course of seventy-two hours, June 10–12. Men and women were encouraged to participate by signing up to read small segments as part of an effort to put the Bible front and center in our lives and homes. What a powerful three days as the living Word of God was spoken and poured into the hearts of people around the world.
Equipping Moms in Their Calling
We celebrate the fourth podcast released from Aviva Nuestros Corazones: Que amen a sus hijos (“To Love Their Children”). This new podcast just for moms launched in May and received more than 40,000 plays in the first month. Praise the Lord for this Spanish outreach that is already ministering to moms, encouraging them in their God-given role of motherhood.
Pray with Us
Seeking Him in French
Reveille Nos Coeurs, the Revive Our Hearts French outreach, recently kicked off a twelve-part podcast series—Seeking Him: Experiencing the Joy of Personal Revival. The first episode aired May 30. New episodes will release each Monday through August 15. This series is based on Nancy’s Seeking Him study, which is also available in French. The Lord is working in exciting ways as He continues to expand the French outreach. Pray for this team as they continue to record and produce podcast episodes, as well as the French-speaking women—for the Lord to use this series to transform their hearts.
Summer of Surrender
Doesn't it feel like summer slips by faster and faster every year? It's easy to let our spiritual lives drift during these months. That’s why Revive Our Hearts is encouraging women to use this season to intentionally invest in their spiritual growth. This year, we're challenging them to fully surrender to God's will: to look fear in the face and find Him faithful. Will you join us in asking God to do a mighty work during ROH's “Summer of Surrender”?
Surrendering everything to God is the key to facing every fear that threatens to steal peace. Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth's new booklet, Facing Our Fears, combines encouragement from Nancy with a practical guide full of Scripture verses. Request your copy today!
Cry Out! Global Prayer Event
When God's people cry out, heaven listens. On Friday, September 23, 2022, Revive Our Hearts is hosting Cry Out!, a global prayer event at True Woman ’22—and you're invited! If you're not able to attend in person in Indianapolis this year, make plans to participate online using the free livestream link. You'll be led in worship by Shane & Shane, and you'll get to pray alongside thousands of women from around the world. Don't miss this powerful event!
We’re immensely grateful for your support of Revive Our Hearts and all the Lord is doing through this ministry. Thanks for celebrating His faithfulness with us and for asking for His continued blessings on this ministry.
