Verses: Psalm 34: 1-3, “I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.”

Issues Women Face: Disney Princesses get a new lease on life. Warning: Some of these images are very disturbing, as the project is attempting to put the princesses in situations that real-life women face. Some are edgy/entertaining/eye-opening. My favorite is Snow White.

Wise Woman: Check out Shannon Ethridge, best-selling author of Every Woman’s Battle and the Sexually Confident Wife. She happens to be my mentor, so I am biased. I will tell you that EveryWoman’s Battle completely change my thought-life and my marriage. There is also an Every Single Woman’s Battle.  They are definitely worth a read.  

Quote: “Don’t do weird things to your face, your body and your hair. Because everyone else did too and no one can tell them apart.” – Jodie Foster, giving advice to Hollywood’s newbies.
Shameless Woman: Natalie Buckingham is a woman at my church who is passionate about seeking justice for victims of human trafficking and slavery. After doing some research and traveling to Cambodia to see the victims firsthand she created this wonderful list–breaking down The Need (a view of life through the eyes of the victims) and The Promise (how the church can respond). Natalie says, “I know first hand the lies guilt and shame that women experience and it is so important for the body of Christ to come together to help and restore each other.”
