“In the beginning of my marriage, my Jewish heritage felt like it collided with my intense love for God’s Son, and from that moment, I began to seek out the Jewish roots of my Christian faith.” ~ Mindy Lee Hopman
Mindy and Jon, married for 20 years in 2017, reside with their teenage children and two dogs in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. As a child of divorce herself, Mindy is a strong advocate for marriage and family in today’s society and the restoration of brokenness which comes through our faith in Jesus Christ.
Naches — So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God's special olive tree (Romans 11:17b NLT)
How does my story fit in to the greatest story? How do I fit into the faith-family tree? As children bring their parents great joy, do I bring the same joy to my Heavenly Father? The answer is "yes!" When you understand the depth of The Father's Love and recognize that when you are grafted your roots run deep, you bring our Heavenly Father great joy, or naches (yiddish - joy or delight beyond words)! When you understand your identity in Christ, you can't help but live a faith-filled life. The faith filled life is about letting go of perfection and holding on tightly to grace. From: Beautiful Legacy: Our Roots Run Deep
Rooted (Isaiah 11:1) — Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, And a branch from his roots will bear fruit (Isaiah 11:1 NASB).
...having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude (Colossians 2:7 NASB).
Rooted travels through the lineage of Jesus Christ from the beginning of time to the resurrection through Mindy's book Beautiful Legacy: Our Roots Run Deep. The message may be given at one time, or broken down into several sessions.
Completely Fixed (Hebrews 12:1-3) – Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart (Hebrews 12:1-3 NASB).
Fixing our eyes on Jesus in every aspect of our lives helps us to overcome the daily obstacles set before us, however, this is easier said than done! Through personal story and Biblical narrative, Mindy helps women identify strongholds, so that God may set them free in order to completely fix their eyes on the lover of their souls - Jesus.
Remember Who You Are: KNOWN (Psalm 139) – O LORD, You have searched me and known me...Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all (Psalm 139:1, 4 NASB).
In today's culture it is hard to move forward without knowing who you are. You are KNOWN by God and in Him you are also CHOSEN, BELOVED, REDEEMED, and SEALED. The Remember Who You Are message series may be delivered in one message or broken up into several smaller messages.
Mindy will customize any message to the dynamics of the group to which she is speaking. Her engaging messages are suitable for women or youth events, as well as retreats
