Virtuous Womanhood

Virtuous Womanhood, exerpt summary from the book “Much More”

 How strange is to refer to a woman as a “godly woman” these days.  We hear of successful woman, career woman, talented, sophisticated, smart, beautiful divorced.  It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife than to be Miss America.  It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to produce a second-rate novel filled with filth. The world has enough women who know how to be smart.  It needs women who are willing to be simple.  There are enough brilliant women, but lacks brave women.  There are enough popular women, but lacks pure women.

 A real woman is a woman who recognizes that she has been exquisitely and perfectly created by a loving God for a unique purpose.  Out of genuine gratitude, awe, and a desire to please her Maker, a real woman joyfully embraces her femininity and submits every aspect of her identity to God’s original and unique design for her as a woman.
