All Her Paths- An Interview with Megan
Q:How did you come up with the name “All Her Paths Ministries?”
A: I have been in Women’s ministry for several years and have been privileged to serve alongside several women on vastly different paths. These women carried heavy burdens of every kind. Some of them had careers. Many of them were mothers. They served in various ways according to their own gifts. As a woman, there are many paths which we travel upon. We are daughters of The King. We are wives. We are mothers. We are caretakers. We all have different callings on our lives, but we share one sole mission: to know Jesus and make him known. All Her Paths is a reference that reminds us that whatever path we find ourselves on, we are all called to live on mission by pushing the gospel into our communities. It’s also a reference to one of my favorite scriptures, Proverbs 3:17. “Her ways are pleasant ways and all her paths are peace.”
Q: Explain your tag line. What does “Every Woman, Every Season, and Every Mission mean?”
A: I believe that every woman has a distinct Kingdom Assignment that she is responsible for completing with her time here on earth. God has given each of us time, talents, and gifts that He intends to use for the salvation and benefit of others. I hope to help women find that calling through teaching them to engage with God’s Word, encouraging them to accept their identity in the Risen Christ, and leading them to the realization that each of their current paths are ultimately God’s sovereign plan for them to accomplish His purpose.
Q: What lead you to begin in Women’s ministry?
A: My first adventure in ministry was as a volunteer youth minister. I taught the middle school and high school age groups and fell in love with teaching God’s Word. A few years later, I moved into children’s ministry. My children were all pre-school age and our church needed a Sunday School teacher for the three to five age group. I loved engaging their growing minds with Scripture. Finally, I started a small MOPS ( Mother’s of Preschoolers) group and we would do a small Bible study on Wednesday evenings. While that was fun, there was a real hunger for the Scriptures that was going unfulfilled. I began a home Bible study focusing on the fundamentals of the Christian faith, theology, and apologetics. I witnessed such growth in the women that participated. I not only loved teaching God’s Word, but I felt my soul rejoice as these women came alive in Christ!
Q: What do you hope to achieve in ministering to women?
A: I hope to equip women to minister to each other by teaching them to foster genuine connection with one another, build Biblical community through in depth Bible study, and have effective faith conversations through knowing the true gospel.
Q: What is your next step in ministry?
A: I am in the midst of writing my very first Bible study! Stay tuned! I hope to hear from the publishing company within the next few weeks.
Q: How important is daily quiet time in Scripture?
A: I think that daily interaction in God’s Word is paramount if we are to walk in relationship with Jesus.We need to study His Word so that we may fully understand the sacrifice that God has made for us through Christ Jesus. We need to be in prayer that The Holy Spirit, the very breath of God, will help open our minds to understand what He is trying to reveal to us.
Q: What do you think is one of the biggest hurdles are in regards to studying Scripture?
A: As a mother of four, I totally understand the shortage of time. As a wife and mother, running my household does take a large chunk of my time, but remembering that God asks me to be faithful motivates me to make my quiet time a priority. I get up before my children and spend some time in the quiet with my Father. This doesn’t always happen, as two year olds have a schedule of their own, but it happens more often than not.
Q: What encouragement do you have for women in all seasons to bring about a robust theology of studying Scripture?
A: There is nothing more refreshing or peace filling than God’s presence. Creating an atmosphere of worship in my home and inviting Him in is the greatest part of my daily routine. I crave to hear His voice through reading His Word. My prayer would be that every woman would have a desire for Him to ignite in her heart.
