Even if you're not married or have kids, can you still be like the Proverbs 31 woman? You betcha! Today, we'll talk about how, plus I'm challenging you to come up with your own ideas.
Is it OK for women to work outside the home? Even among Christian women, you'll get a variety of answers to that question. That's why today, we'll look at God's Word for our standard, particularly the life of one woman who has a lot to teach us on the subject.
So why did God create women, anyway? Today, we'll look at a consistent source of Truth for the answer (God's Word), plus talk about how to practically apply that to everyday life.
Today, let's consider how we express our femininity in more substantive
ways than time spent in malls, dressing up for dates, collecting
hundreds of lipstick colors, or the love of “Southern Living” décor.
What are you afraid of when it comes to living out your feminine design and calling?
What do you think? Does God really care what we as women wear? I mean,
I know He’s passionate about our holiness, but does that seriously have
implications on our wardrobe?
You nailed it. Two weeks ago, I wrote a post applauding Miss California Carrie Prejean for taking a stance for biblical marriage in the Miss USA Pageant. Many of you commented that while you appreciated Miss Cali’s public stand for Truth you couldn’t help but notice a disconnect between her statement and the immodest clothing she sported on stage.
And then . . . Carrie found herself in the center of a new storm.

We’re talking about Biblical womanhood this month on LYWB.com.
As we examine God’s vision for your future, I see the value in
highlighting the perspective if individual’s who are in a similar stage
of life as most of you. While you will be hearing from lots of “older”
women on this topic this month, I also wanted you to hear from someone
who is young and unmarried and actively pursuing to live out God’s
design for womanhood.
I get it. Fitting God’s vision of womanhood into modern society can
feel like shoving a square peg into a round hole. And some of us don’t
even get that far. We’re still trying to figure out what God’s
standards for women really are.
Can marriage stay sweet for 20 years? Let Dannah tell you.
If you posted for our giveaway, you may have guessed that Meg Ryan was the actress (opposite Tom Hanks) in ‘You’ve Got Mail,” my favorite romantic comedy. However, that is not Meg Ryan or Tom Hanks in the picture to the left. It’s me and Bob! He had a friend Photoshop us into the DVD cover art. He even had our friend take the movies starring canine, “Brinkley,” out of the photo and added my own labradoodle, “Stormie!” Our winner of the contest posted for a copy of And the Bride Wore White and a $10 card for Starbucks, selected by random drawing, is Jessica Baarbe.
And now you know that my 20th anniversary celebration was a three-day trip to New York City with a “You’ve Got Mail” theme. Can you think of anything more romantic?
This is Rachel. She’s bright. And beautiful. And talented. She loves
Jesus and wants to pursue His plan for her life. But, she’s also torn.
In one ear she hears the messages of the culture telling her to order
her life so that pursing a career is clearly her first priority.
Marriage and motherhood should not be her focus. “That’s so
old fashioned.” But, in the other ear (and in the depths of her heart)
she hears another voice. That voice says that she was created with the
roles of wife and mother in mind. When she reads the account of the
Garden of Eden she sees that Eve was made to be a helper to the man and
the mother of children, and she wonders what that means about her purpose.
I got a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils for my twentieth wedding
anniversary. It was one of the most romantic gifts my husband has ever
given to me. In fact, I wish every single one of you a twentieth
wedding anniversary celebration half as romantic. I believe God dreams
for marriages to be this sweet twenty years after they begin.
But, what would I tell my future self? What questions would I ask about
who she’s become? What do I wish for her to do differently? In what
areas do I hope God has shaped her to make her different from me? I
imagine, I would have a great deal to tell her, but here’s the start of
I know who you’ll be next year…and in 10 years…and in 20…
Many, many of you commented on Friday’s post. The consistent theme was
that when faced with Paul’s struggle with sin, you can totally relate.
Sometimes, it feels like it’s impossible to overcome our sin. But,
God’s Truth tells a different story.
Does the power of sin within you ever sabotage your best intentions? Do
you decide to do good (to read your Bible, to pray more often, to get
more involved in ministry in your church) only to drop the ball? Do you
decide not to do bad (to gossip less, to stop lying, to be nice to your
parents) only to fall flat on your face? Do you ever feel like you
can’t overcome your sin?
