Some are applauding her brave decision to “redefine motherhood,” while others think it is plain selfish. True Woman: Silence, Scarves, and Other Questions http://truewoman.com/?id=1643 2011-04-15T10:05:08-05:00 Do you ever read verses like this and feel a little irritated or “cramped” as a woman? I mean, I thought Paul valued women, but what’s up with this idea of “No talking for women in church”? True Woman: Calling All Men for International Women's Day http://truewoman.com/?id=1645 2011-04-15T10:03:53-05:00 The message we are hearing this International Women’s Day is that women will only be equal when they assume the same roles as men. Enforcing “sameness” will uphold woman’s worth and dignity. I beg to differ. True Woman: Grieving June Cleaver http://truewoman.com/?id=1549 2011-03-03T16:31:39-05:00 So what are we to do? Should we start playing “Leave it to Bea ver” re-runs and tell women they’d be happy if they followed June Cleaver’s example? Should we encourage them to start wearing high heels and pearls while vacuuming? Should we run advertising campaigns that glorify the value of ironing, or disparage women who can’t bake cookies from scratch? True Woman: The True Woman CLICK http://truewoman.com/?id=1487 2010-11-12T14:50:45-05:00 Most change happens gradually. A child slowly learns to read. Braces slowly straighten teeth. A bush is slowly trimmed and shaped into a hedge. But then there are those changes that happen all at once. They are “Click!” or “Aha!” moments when our perspectives suddenly shift, and we begin to see the whole world in a different light. True Woman: Holly Elliff’s Life . . . Eight Kids Later http://truewoman.com/?id=1484 2010-11-12T14:44:39-05:00 If you’d asked 20-year-old Holly Elliff what she was going to do with her life, her answer would’ve been quite different than the way her life actually turned out. True Woman: What in the world is a “true woman”? http://truewoman.com/?id=1483 2010-11-12T14:43:23-05:00 A couple weeks ago, I left my computer and cubicle behind, and hit the streets asking women some tough questions about what it means to be a true woman. While I’m glad I didn’t have to answer these questions on the spot, I will say that there’s a whole lot of confusion amongst women about who we are, why we exist, and what will make us truly happy. True Woman: It’s Impossible to Be a True Woman! http://truewoman.com/?id=1481 2010-11-12T14:40:46-05:00 “I can’t take this anymore!” How many times has your frustration level risen to the point that you truly believed you couldn’t handle one more thing? True Woman: LIVE From Fort Worth: Deborah’s Convicting Biographical Sketch http://truewoman.com/?id=1479 2010-11-12T14:37:00-05:00 If I were Deborah, and were writing my own bio, I’d want people to know that I was a prophetess, a warrior, a strategist, a leader. But Deborah wasn’t motivated by recognition or fame. True Woman: LIVE From Ft. Worth: Six True Women and One True Man http://truewoman.com/?id=1478 2010-11-12T14:34:44-05:00 The Saturday morning panel discussion is one of the lighter sessions of the conference as laughter mixes in with practical applications of the biblical truths we've heard about throughout the weekend. The women on the panel, Holly Elliff, Carolyn McCulley, Karen Loritts, Kay Arthur, Mary Kassian, and Dannah Gresh are wise, empathetic, and REAL.
