I surrendered my life to Christ in May 2008. I got married in March 2021. Needless to say I lived my life single in Christ for over ten years before getting married. I served the KING of kings in many different mission fields. I lived to shine the light of Christ amongst many people in dark places. I preface this post with this backstory because I want to give context for how much I see Biblical Womanhood as an opportunity to do some of the same work I did on the mission field right in my home.
“…when they observe your pure, godly life before God, it will impact them deeply.” (1 Peter 3:2)
One thing I hold with high regard in my heart is the life of God’s Son on earth. I surrendered my life to Christ when I studied His person and His teachings. He didn’t just teach it, He embodied it. The glory of the Father He revealed shines divinely through His love and compassion. He is steadfast in truth as He navigates this world.
The command of Ephesians 5 to imitate God has always led me to copy Jesus because He is God in the flesh. His example has impressed the importance of living what you teach. In my case living what I read as instructions as well.
Now to the main point. I’m on this Biblical Womanhood 2.0 tip heavily because my understanding of Biblical Womanhood has been elevated and my passion to pursue the call has increased. Being a homemaker and stay at home Mom has shown me how much the Gospel is the foundation and fountain for my life as a wife and mother.
I’m completely committed to growing in obedience to such instructions as being devoted to my husband so that my kind conduct may speak even without words. (1 Peter 1:1) That’s real love. Love for God and love for people.
“…your kind conduct may win them over without you saying a thing.” (1 Peter 3:1)
I’m being intentional about practicing a pure and godly life. Look at the outcome,
“…it will impact [him] deeply”.
I love the word kindness. Kindness is beautiful and Yahweh is certainly kind. Once again I emphasize the practice of imitating God through Biblical Womanhood.
~There’s womanhood and then there’s Biblical Womanhood!
Our Biblical Womanhood 2.0 collection drops January 4, 2023! Let’s take the movement to another level by living this call out together!
“And now let me speak to the wives. Be devoted to your own husbands, so that even if some of them do not obey the Word of God, your kind conduct may win them over without you saying a thing. For when they observe your pure, godly life before God, it will impact them deeply. Let your true beauty come from your inner personality, not a focus on the external. For lasting beauty comes from a gentle and peaceful spirit, which is precious in God’s sight and is much more important than the outward adornment of elaborate hair, jewelry, and fine clothes. Holy women of long ago who had set their hopes in God beautified themselves with lives lived in deference to their own husbands’ authority. For example, our “mother,” Sarah, devoted herself to her husband, Abraham, and even called him “master.” And you have become her daughters when you do what is right without fear and intimidation. Husbands, you in turn must treat your wives with tenderness, viewing them as feminine partners who deserve to be honored, for they are co-heirs with you of the “divine grace of life,” so that nothing will hinder your prayers.”
