Strength to Strength Sisters welcomed Darla Weaver for this important and timely topic.
What does it mean to walk in grace as a woman of God? In a conservative Christian culture that embraces obedience to the Word of God, grace can easily get lost in the details. My personal journey from obedience rooted in fear and a desire for perfection, to obedience rooted in love, relationship, and freedom has been long and varied, but it’s also been life changing in the best kind of way. Legalism demands perfection from everyone, especially ourselves, but grace points to the finished work on the cross, enabling us to walk in obedience with a heart of joy and surrender.
An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
As a follower of Jesus Christ, Darla Weaver believes passionately that in all she does, she is to do for the glory of God. As a wife and mother of eleven, her main area of service is washing dishes, sorting laundry, changing diapers, all as an act of worship.
Their family opens their home to both believers and unbelievers, believing that making disciples is something that involves the whole family, not just the parents. Mentoring, serving, sharing the good news, it’s her heart to serve where God calls.
Darla and her husband Marlin were raised and married conservative Mennonite but didn’t truly meet Christ until they were married five years and had two children. Prior to that, their lives were a mess of anger, lust, and lies, but Jesus made all things new; it’s been twenty years of redemption and healing.
Their passions as a family are for the kingdom of Heaven, walking in obedience, growing in grace, and making disciples first with their children and then with whoever God brings into their world.
Their family is a part of a small urban church in East Providence, Rhode Island.
