First Lady Files: Andrea Humphrey

“As a first lady I’m always challenged by men who want me to behave a certain way that my husband is not co-signing to,” says Andrea Humphrey of H.O.P.E.'s House Christian Ministries. “Because if you don't do what the historical patriarchal model says, then in some kind of way you're rebellious.”

The mother of two, who co-pastors with her husband Charles Humphrey at the church they founded together in 2003, owns a consultation firm, is a published author, is fluent in American Sign Language and is a executive development coach for Disney.

From The Pulpit: of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church

“Grumbling About Grace” Matthew 20:1-16

Our text grows out of a reply that Jesus made to Simon Peter, and Simon Peter's statement was an aftermath of Jesus' parable about “the rich young ruler.” After Jesus gives the parable about “the rich young ruler,” Peter said, in essence, “you told the rich young man to sell all he had and follow you. And that's exactly what we have done. We have left everything and followed you; what shall we have therefore?” Simon was saying, “Lord, unlike the young man who did not leave his possessions, we did not trust in our possessions; we left them and we have trusted you and staked our existence upon you; we have given up our diverse vocations; we have sacrificed our families and homes, we have abandoned all for your sake. Now what we need to know is, for all of this trusting, abandoning and renouncing, what is to be our gain?”

In Style

Being the proud mother of four little ones (under 7 years old), I can say that I have some experience when it comes to styling the baby bump. I should start by saying that although it doesn’t always feel like it, being pregnant is a beautiful thing. Whether your ankles swell, your skin gets spotty or you’re just feeling plain old yucky, it’s important to realize that your body is doing an amazing and awesome thing, growing a life.

You will find that maxi length and wrap style dresses will feel the most comfortable and look the most flattering. Maxi dresses offer the length that you’ll need as it becomes harder to move around comfortably. For me, I was constantly bending down to pick up one thing or another so I needed hands-free coverage. You won’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions or other embarrassing moments.
