Therefore encourage one another and edify one another, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Review: You Are Beautiful In God's Eyes by Lisa Shaw

For those of you, who are familiar with Lisa Shaw, are aware of her love for God and His people. She is an Awesome Woman of God with a caring heart and brings along inspiration where ever she goes.

This is a great easy to read book which consist of 10 Short Chapters and only 79 pages but packed with some powerful life changing information. You Are Beautiful In God's Eyes is geared for women ages 14 years and older.

Here are a few titles of some of the chapters you will find in the book.

2. The World's View
3. Past Pain
4. Hurting Words
5. I Need A Man to complete Me

Mrs. Shaw has included scripture references throughout which allows the reader to additionally reflect on God's word. You will also find at the end of each chapter some questions for you to meditate on. She really challenges you to think and dig deep within yourself. You are indeed Beautiful!

The shipping is great, packaged well and the price is GREAT. You can purchase a Hard Copy, Kindle eBook Version or Nook eBook Version.

As a person who has struggled with my past and self esteem, I highly recommend You Are Beautiful In God's Eyes. This is truly a MUST Read!!! When you finish this book, you will find you have much more confidence in yourself and see yourself as God sees you. The world, your past or present will no longer define your beauty.

Worship Joyfully

We we go to God in worship we are to go joyfully. This means we should be enthusiastic when we worship Him. God is the Creator and we belong to Him. Because God’s goodness is everlasting, we all are to rejoice in His presence.

Be happy with who God is and with everything He does. Don't be afraid to let everyone know about how good God is and Him and His word is constant and NEVER changing.

Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

  For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Forever Thankful

Forever Thankful

Being forever thankful
Is what God wants from us
Never forgetting from where we came
Or His boundless saving love

All of heavens blessings
Poured down from heavens gates
Everything we have in life
He's given with extra grace

We need to always thank Him
For this and so much more
Not only for tangible things
But because He is our Lord

Thanksgiving is the key
For His blessings to increase
If we've not got thankful hearts
His blessings soon will cease

Don't ever start complaining
At what you may not have
Look around at what you see
Then be thankful and glad

You are Not Alone

I was watching a movie and I just began to cry. I was so emotional when the little boy in the movie was being picked on.  I immediately felt horrible because he did not have anyone to stick up for him. He was new in town and had no relatives or friends. As a result of  him being in an unfamiliar territory,  he was feeling as though he was all alone. I could relate because I to,  had moments where I thought I was isolated and had no one to communicate with or help solve my dilemmas. I noticed sometimes when we are going through trials we either want to go to someone for help or we want to handle it ourselves.

God quickly reminded me He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). I'm sure you have heard this before, but he really is there to take care of us and has our back regardless of what we are going through. He will be with us and guide us even when we think we are at the end of the road with no options. He can top any friend we could ever have. In reality, our friends will only go so far for us. It is exciting to know even when our friends and love ones turn their backs on us, we still have a Father who is watching over us? Glory to God! I don't know about you but it is exciting to me. You are NEVER alone.

When you enter into a crisis, let the first person you talk to be our Heavenly Father. He wants you to depend on Him. He is a jealous God and want to come FIRST in your life and that includes all decision- making.

All you have to do is accept Him into your life and allow Him to lead.

November (S.I.S) Sister in the Spotlight: Lisa Shaw

Lisa Shaw
Praise the Lord Ladies! I’m excited to share a bit of my love for God with you on this beautiful ministry Sisters of Honor with Deaconess Aretha Turner. Thank you for the honor. It’s very humbling to share with you today…

A bit about me:

Let me say that God’s love is the story of my life and it shows in His mercy, grace and patience that He pours out on me daily. I have been married for over 21 years to my best friend, spiritual covering, ministry partner and the man whom I call my greatest cheerleader, Peter Shaw. He is my Border Buster for sure! I have two daughters ages 25 and 18 who are my hearts. I have two precious grand-girls ages 4 and 3 who are my joys and I have one special son-in-law. I’m also Mamma to two Maltese fur-boys named Goodness and Merci.

While I come with business background, my calling is to minister the Word of God to all who are wounded and need to know God loves them. A call I have taken seriously for a very long time. By God’s grace I am an ordained pastor (along with my husband), bible teacher, speaker and first time author.

When I had the pleasure to be with my Grandparents which was regularly, they not only took me to church they involved me. I grew up serving God in church, gave my life to Christ at age 12 but had many struggles due to childhood pain that affected my life including decisions I made in my teens and into my mid-twenties. After a history of being hindered by past pain, people pleasing, approval addiction, secret-sin and the grip of fear, I came to realize that I was enough in God’s eyes. I was valuable to Him through Christ. Yes, you can be saved, serving in Church and still be carnal and hurting tremendously. I remember the day when 1 John 3:1 became life to me. I came to know Him not just as my God but as my Abba Father; someone in whom I could feel safe and who loved me not for how I looked or how I performed but just because I was His! That’s freeing ladies!

The Ministry:

Lisa Shaw Ministries ( is a prayer, bible teaching, speaking and ministering ministry which helps people to see themselves through God’s eyes. God’s given me a very tender heart toward the wounded woman especially. Hence, I have just published my first book: You Are Beautiful In God’s Eyes. For a description of the book and why I believe God has purposed this for EVERY woman of ALL ages, please see my website. ( I believe Aretha asked who inspired me to write my book. It was every woman I’ve ever ministered to and every woman that is wounded in her heart or mind. It also has some of my testimony and how God healed my heart. He led me to get this book done. He used a girlfriend of mine to kick it off at lunch in late May of this year. I was showing her a booklet written by another author when she asked, “Where is your booklet Lisa?” Two months later I had a draft book in my hands for my hubby and my friend to edit. I give God all the glory because it was not Lisa who did it but Him. It took me years of starts and stops in writing a book and finally, in His timing and by His Spirit, I got it done! Let me tell you ladies that there is such incredible healing, grace and restoration when we truly lay down the lies of the enemy and our past or present circumstances and even our own negative thoughts and dare to believe what God says about us! I pray you’ll get the book and if you do, I’d love to hear from you. (

 On-line Ministry:

By His grace I have two blogs that are extensions of the ministry: Sharing Life with Lisa ( where I share my heart and life in Christ, and His Love Covers Our Sins ( which is a Post Abortive Healing Ministry blog.

My Favorite Scripture and Quote: 

I love the Word of God in its entirety but I will share one with you that is very important to my personal life and that is Psalm 27:13-14. Grandma, who is the one who taught me to love God, pray and to hunger for His word; taught me this Scripture when I was very young. She told me that I would need it. She was right. It’s walked with me for over 45 years.

Psalm 27:13-14 (KJV) I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

I have a few favorite quotes. One that helped me during my healing process from my childhood is “You can be bitter or better” by Joyce Meyer. That’s life changing when you grasp it fully.

What I’d like to leave you with ladies is never stop reaching for what God has purposed you to do. Don’t seek His hand. Seek His heart. Don’t look for His presents. Seek His presence. When you do He will take care of the rest and remember, you are bright, brilliant and beautiful in God’s Eyes. Yes you are! I love you and I’m praying for you with compassion. Please come visit with me and let me know you dropped in and how I may pray for you.
