What Kind Of Woman Am I Becoming?
Idisciple

"By God's grace, I am becoming a woman of courage, a woman of strength, a woman of self-discipline. A woman of diligence. A woman of wisdom and discernment, a woman of compassion, a woman of beauty - true beauty - the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. A woman who loves much, because she has been forgiven much. A woman who takes refuge in God alone. A woman of valor who does not run fro the battle, but to it, fearlessly, relentlessly determined - through her obedience - to defeat the enemy and bring victory to herself and her people, to the glory of God and His eternal Kingdom." -Christin Ditchfield

I want to be able to say that I am a Godly woman when I grow up, but in order to say that, I have to be a Godly girl. Becoming a Godly woman doesn't have a check list that I can cross off after I have "achieved" whatever point I think I have gained. Becoming a Godly woman means having trials and hardships and choosing to trust God through it all. It means being a role model for younger girls to follow. It means giving your all to God, even when you think you have nothing left.

This doesn't happen overnight, and it certainly doesn't happen in a few days, weeks, or even months. Becoming a Godly woman is a lifelong goal. A lifetime of journey's that teach you how to love with all of your heart, mind, body, and soul.

When you read about women in the Bible and look at their many characteristics, it is almost overwhelming because there were so many women who had hearts for God. Esther's boldness, the closeness of Ruth, submission of Mary, and so many more. Each of these women simply wanted to walk, talk and love just like Jesus ... to be a woman of God.

In order to be a woman of God, it all starts when you are young. Taking everything you learn as a child and teenager that has sculpted and built you into who you are and using it for God's will. Watching and listening to the superiors in your church and life are two simple ways to gain insight to becoming a Godly woman. More than likely, they have gone through the same thing that you are going through. They have made mistakes and they can keep you from making those same mistakes.

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity." -Margaret Dyreng Nadauld

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
