In the Mirror of God is a place for women to learn how spending more time
with God equips us to conquer and enjoy life to the fullest!
Unfortunately, we live in a world today where there is less and less interest in learning the bible. The bible is depicted as being outdated, fictional, having little value, and to some, completely irrelevant. The sad part, is that Christians are adapting to that same line of thinking, without even realizing it.
As women, we are bogged down by the busyness and challenges of everyday life (work, kids, taking care of the home, side hustles, etc.). Then we spend the bulk of our spare time on social media, watching TV, and surfing the internet. In the process, we are allowing life to rob us of our time with God. Devotions, prayer, bible study and church fellowship have become things we do only when its convenient, as a last resort when things get tough, or when we need something from God.
As a result, our daily routines began to resemble a life of misery, in which we our exhausted by the circumstances and pressures of life. We walk around depressed, worried, stressed out, angry, bitter, jealous, and confused.
We barely even realize it, as most of us have become so accustomed to it that it actually seems normal. But in reality, instead of us conquering and enjoying life, life is conquering us.
But, God NEVER intended for us to live in misery as Christians, and just co-exist on earth with everyone else, until we die. Jesus died so that we would truly enjoy life to the fullest!
Regardless of your marital status, age, race, job title, financial standing, or whether or not you have kids, as a Christian woman you do NOT have to continue to let life kick your butt! God has equipped us with so much in His Word that will help us to not only conquer ALL the circumstances and challenges of life, but will also help us to be free to enjoy life in the process!
If you desire and are willing to learn to make this one tweak - spending more time with God - then I promise In the Mirror of God is the place for you! No more just surviving, or getting by in life. It's time to start truly conquering and enjoying life - the way God intended!
How was In the Mirror of God Started?
2012 was by far the absolute lowest and darkest point in my life. It was the year that I literally lost everything (my home, car, job of 8 years, husband, and my church). Sadly, it was the one point in my life where I actually considered suicide.
The Holy Spirit convicted me during that time to simply pick up my bible and start reading it again. Although it was only a verse or two, here and there to start, you have no idea how that was the one thing that saved my life - spiritually, mentally, and physically. You can read more of my personal testimony in this post: Have You Forgotten Your Own Story?
A year later in 2013, God began to place a huge burden on my heart to teach other women about the importance of His Word. To teach them how to read, learn, study, and even fall in love with the Word of God. To teach them how vital it is to spend time looking into our spiritual mirror (the bible) regularly, so that we can cultivate a deeper relationship with God, conquer the challenges of life, and truly live and enjoy life the way God intended.
By 2014, I started writing my thoughts and what God was teaching me in a journal. In 2016, I transferred severed of those writings to my original blog entitled Deme in the Mirror. By the end of 2019, God redirected my focus to develop an online ministry via the blog and to change the name to In the Mirror of God.

Although In the Mirror of God is not about me, I'm honored to be the vessel that God is using to help spread His Word via this online ministry.
My name is Demetra (Deme), and I love God and His Word, and I'm a fanatic about teaching other women to learn and love God's Word as well.
I graduated with a B.S. in Biblical Studies from Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn University) in 2001. I am currently back in Richmond, VA where I was born and raised.
Outside of work and ministry, I'm a single mother of an incredible teenage son, who other than God, has been my sole motivational factor.
I enjoy working out, reading, writing, red wine, listening to music of all genres, playing pool, trying out new restaurants, getting a massage, hot showers, and traveling.
