Being a Woman - 2011 Invitation

Happy New Year!
This year I am going to intentionally focus on one thing on this blog!  By the end of  2011 I would like to be able to answer one big question!  The question is... "What is the true meaning of being a woman?"   

I know you might think this an odd question, but to be honest I am slightly confused at times.  I have some thoughts, some preferences and even some convictions - which I will share with you through out the year.  I also have some concerns and some fears about being a woman - I will also share these with you.  The bottom line is that I know deep down inside that God had a perfect plan when He designed us male and female.  It wasn't random and we weren't a second thought, a plan B.  He made us male and female and said that it was good!  I look at the world around me today and what I see is not good.  I see confusion, hurt, fear and desperation.  This is not good.  Men don't know how to be men and women no longer understand how to be woman.  This has lead to the breakdown of families and ultimately wrecked our country and the world that we live in.  It should come completely naturally to us but somehow it has all got messed up.  I intend to get to the bottom of it, with your help of course :)  

I would like to invite you.. challenge you, to explore what God has to say about all this.  As our church focuses on building families this year, with Dave focusing on building the children and as Eric focuses on building the men in the family, I would love us girls to explore our part of the family as mother, wife, daughter or sister.  We will search the Bible, we will pray, we will openly discuss and see what we can come up with.  It won't be about what is right or wrong, there is already too much of that going about!  It will be about simply searching for the truth - who are we really and how do we live as God intended us to live - free and in abundance.  I  challenge you to join me on this journey to discover God's design and purpose of  women.  This journey is an open discussion both here on my blog and through regular King’s Daughters events that you are invited to, where we can explore and discover the true meaning of womanhood.  Would you like to join me in this journey?

If you have any questions you want to explore please leave a comment below or if you want to remain anonymous please email them to me.

The Being a Woman book and worksheets are available here.

Secure on the Rock

Every little girl wants to know that their daddy thinks they are beautiful! As we grow older that need doesn’t change, but what if your daddy didn't call you beautiful? What if he hurt you and did things that he shouldn't do?  How can you feel beautiful or believe that your Father in heaven loves you when you have no idea what that means?  Secure on the Rock is an emotional roller coaster ride through Angela's experiences with her earthly daddy and the security she finally found in the heart of her heavenly daddy.  Available at:  Amazon.com | Amazon.co.uk | Kindle StudyGuide: Amazon.com | Amazon.co.uk | More Info Free Audio:  Part 1 - Insecurity | Part 2 - Daddy   Contents: Introduction My Daddy - A Sandy Foundation My Darling - Freedom from controlling insecurity My Daughters - Discovering my daddy’s delight in me My Rescuer - Being rescued by my Prince My Redeemer - Being pieced back together My Rock - No turning back My Only
