Bringing Resources to the Christian Woman Online.
As a community of business women, Christian Woman Affiliate is unique in that we expect you to share the resources and ministries you are passionate about.
We are here because we want to connect and support each other.
Here’s the thing, none of us are really interested in self-promotion. We don’t want to be spammed and we certainly don’t want to be used.
What we do want to hear is:
And . . . the ways we can meet each other’s needs.
Do not bounce from page to page leaving links to your awesome website, blog, facebook page etc. That’s spamming.
We are all busy women and do not appreciate spam in any way ever. If you are a habitual spammer you will be removed from the CWA immediately.
What is the difference between spam and sharing? In a word, relationship.
If we have a real relationship, then I bet your friends are 100% interested in hearing about your latest book or business venture. If you send unsolicited junk that does not pertain to the receiver seeking personal gain rather than fellowship - that would be spam.
Do not visit the links shared within our community (blog sites, personal websites or anywhere else) simply to spam them. It’s just rude. Keep your motivation pure.
If you notice a member violating these guidelines, please report the issue.
What you can do is make friends; lots of friends.
Share among your friends, on your page, in your portfolio or in groups that you are actively participating in. You can also include links to your blog or website in your signature.
Here’s a great video tutorial on how to share content through CWA.
Remember, you are not here to advertise, recruit, spam or smother us with information.
You’re here to connect. So let’s connect.
What should we do?
Participate. Connect. Affiliate.
Participate with thoughtful dialogue.
Connect through meaningful relationship.
Affiliate with others, working together for God’s glory.
Remember, Christianity has many denominations. As such, we reflect many different viewpoints and perspectives on scripture. I ask that we make a concerted effort to focus on the unifying qualities will all share as believers, rather than fixating on the dividing lines that separate us.
How Should We Act?
Let’s bring it back to the Word.
“Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift.” Ephesians 4:29(MSG)
Unkind words, slander, and unwholesome language are cause for removal from Christian Women Affiliate. We’re here to support each other. Let’s do that!
“If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back,
but keeps going to the end.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (MSG)
Posts that reflect a lack of love through verbal attacks will be deleted. We don’t have to agree on all points, but as believers we should show love to all.
“But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.” Galatians 5:22-23 (MSG)
Pushiness will not get you ahead. We’re savvy and we see through it. If you’re sincere nothing can hold back our support and the blessings that come with it.
“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” Philippians 4:8 (MSG)
What should we be?
A kaleidoscope of talented women united in the mission of bringing resources to the Christian Woman Online.
I pray we remain a community of women that impacts our world and each other with the love of God.
