You = Woman of Influence

Last fall I got to lead a study on biblical womanhood with a fabulous group of student wives. As we looked at everything the Bible has to say about being a woman, a definite pattern emerged. In the lives of all the individual women we read about, there was one theme running through the pages […]

What’s So Bad About The Term “Helper”?

The burning question for women today is that of identity. Who am I? What is my worth? Am I really significant? Can I be used? Beginning in Genesis, we see that, as a woman, we have meaning and significance in the kingdom of God. Not only are we created for this purpose, but we were […]

I trained. I prepared. And, like a girl, I also planned my running outfit (I love running skirts!) with […]

Can There Be Real Equality with Distinctions?

Can There Be Real Equality with Distinctions?

Distinction: We believe that God has given women and men distinctive roles within the family and the church; that these roles were intentionally created and given prior to human sin; that according to God’s design, these roles are interdependent but not interchangeable (Gen 2:18-25; 1 Cor 11:3, 8-9, 11-12; 1 Tim 2:12-14). My Personal Journey […]

What Does the Bible Say About Women in Social Roles?

Most believers who consider God to have created the man and the woman with equal personhood but differing roles at least minimally agree that women are not to be in authority over men in the church and home (1 Tim 2:12).
