Am I Lovely?

There is a voice that is within every woman that asks, “Am I lovely?”  After 33 years of research, I believe that question arises almost as soon as a female baby enters the world.  Every woman I know seeks an answer to that question, whether it is conscious or subconscious. When I was a kid,Continue reading “Am I Lovely?”

The good and bad of female insanity, part 3

We are competitive—or persistent as the case may be When a woman sees something that she wants, she will go to any lengths to get it.  To any lengths.  If you don’t believe me, head out to the stores on Black Friday—the busiest shopping day of the year in the US.  The gloves come off,Continue reading “The good and bad of female insanity, part 3”

The good and bad of female insanity, part 2

We have lots of insecurities Women are riddled with insecurities.  If you don’t believe me, go into a bathroom in any bar on a Saturday night.  “Does my butt look ok in these jeans?”  “Oh my god, my hair looks so bad!”  Yeah, I go into the bathroom to make sure I still look put-togetherContinue reading “The good and bad of female insanity, part 2”

The bad–and good–of female insanity, part one

I am a woman.  I have to give men a lot of credit.  I don’t know how you deal with women, let alone find yourselves attracted to women.  I work in an office with eight, yes eight, women.  I love all of the women with whom I work.  However, I think having that many women,Continue reading “The bad–and good–of female insanity, part one”

Women in ministry. Answers please.

Tonight in my small group, we got to talking about women in ministry.  I have a question to post to all of those opposed to women in ministry–and to those who limit the role of a woman in ministry to women’s ministry and children’s ministry.  If you believe that women can be leaders in theContinue reading “Women in ministry. Answers please.”

Racism and sexism…politically charged post. You are warned.

I know I’m late in making this observation.  But I’ll say better late than never.  And the reason that I’m commenting is because it was part of my conversation this morning at work. The comments that were made about the Rutgers Women’s Basketball team enraged me…from the deepest place of me.  Part of me wantsContinue reading “Racism and sexism…politically charged post.

This weekend was also a call to action. Today Pastor Jay preached. He taught on growth…how it is important toContinue reading “Call to action”
