women's issues (20)

The never ending battle against the Media and it`s bogus  idea of the "PERFECT WOMAN". *sigh* 

 

  Lately I have been studying the media, reading articles, watching news, and looking for anything that I can find to make me feel that there is still  hope for our world. If you have read any of my past blogs, then you will already know where my concerns lie.

 

 For those of you that are just reading me for the first time, my concerns are strong regarding women of today and their search for the true

Today we are going to be talking about what to do when life feels totally out of control. Have you ever felt that way before you are doing all the things that you know how to do? You're having a quiet time, you're praying you're. Reading your Bible, you're, going to church you're hanging out with friends that support you and encourage you, but life seems to be falling apart all around you. It may seem like everything you touch just crumbles and you're, asking the Lord, “ Lord How long? When are

I snapped on my friend when she told me I was wrong.

“Can I be honest?” she asked me before I chopped her head off with my sharp tongue. And even though I responded, “Yes, please be honest,” I wasn’t in the mood to drink down any truth serum.

“The way you talk to people is condescending and really nasty a lot of times,” she said. “I know you’re popular and have a lot of friends and acquaintances, but you say some really harsh, callous things to people and you need to check that.”

Check that?

Know yourself as a woman and know your purpose in your own life and in the life of your husband.

After God had created the whole earth and everything in it thereof, including the animals he then created Adam, whom he tried to find a help fit for but found non amongst the animals and so he realized that there was a need to create another being that looked more like Adam hence t

Some people have a difficult time managing their depression. Sometimes, their depression and fears can get the best of them. As a result, here is a short list of techniques that a woman can use to help manage her depression.

One of the ways to manage your depression is to challenge your negative thinking with positive statements and realistic thinking. When encountering thoughts that make your fearful or depressed, challenge those thoughts by asking yourself questions that

As a black woman, Lupita Nyong’o knows just how important it is to speak up about her hair. 

“My hair is something that, historically, has been shunned,” the “Black Panther” actress told Net-a-Porter for the magazine’s fall fashion issue. “I mean, how often do you hear, ‘You can’t get a job with hair like that’?” 

Nyong’o, 35, told Net-a-Porter’s Carolyn Kormann that she still hears that microaggression often. 

“Natural, African, kinky hair ― it’s often been painted as uncivilized or wil

I can’t remember not being an athlete. From the time that I could walk, I participated in sports and extracurricular activities. During my earliest years of life, I danced. I did gymnastics for several more years, though I wasn’t good at it. (I was too tall and flimsy to control my body.) By the time I was 11, I started racing competitively, and that’s where I found my niche. I was fast and strong with nearly a perfect hurdle technique. I worked hard. I won often. I grew confident.

virtuous-woman.jpg?w=840

by Lori Godfrey  

Anyone that has read the Bible for any length of time has read Proverbs 31. Many women have asked the question, "Can I live up to her trait?" The answer given is yes. The only prerequisite to being a virtuous woman is a woman who fears the Lord.

Throughout the Bible, our eye falls on the many stories of virtuous women, from Sarah to Hannah, Elizabeth, and Mary. We often ponder Proverbs 31 especially living in the 21st Century. The world is entirely different.

SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESSFUL WOMEN

1. In everything you do, always put GOD first.

Many of us have a habit of putting other people first or putting ourselves before anyone or anything. This is what we are taught to do, but it is incorrect and it is damaging. Eloihim must always come first. Everything you do, whether at home or the workplace you must do for him. He comes before your spouse, your boss, your children, your customers. If you put GOD first, all

THE RESURRECTION OF THE AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN PART 1:The Purpose of Woman,The Value Of The Virtuous Woman

The Behavior of Women

 

Titus 2:3-5 teaches us how women, both younger and older, should act. And to be honest it is in direct contrast of we see in the home, workplace, classroom, and community today. First, let's discuss our older women. Older women are to be reverent and pure. They are to be set apart for the world in thought and behavior. They sho

Hidden figures: How black women preachers spoke truth to power

Sojourner Truth Memorial in Florence, Massachusetts.

Each semester I greet the students who file into my preaching class at Howard University with a standard talk. The talk is not an overview of the basics – techniques of sermon preparation or sermon delivery, as one might expect. Outlining the basics is not particularly difficult.

The greatest challenge, in fact, is helping learners to stretch their theology: namely, how they perceive who God is an

The Black woman in America is in bondage and we allow Satan to keep her that way. African Americans will not rise until the Black woman is brought back to life. After the Civil War the chains came off but today we still are not free. No our wrist and ankles are not chained but our minds are. To the men reading this, we must learn to show our women, our sisters, our mothers the proper respect. God created man to be the stewards over all creation. To show disrespect to the gift that is woman is m

“So what’s it like to be a pastor’s wife?”

My wife gets asked this question all the time. Most of the time, she turns to me and says, “Scott, what’s it like to be a lawyer’s husband?!”

I’m sure being my wife has influenced the way she experiences church and relates to God. I meet many people who are surprised when I share the ways being a lawyer’s husband influences the way I pastor my church, relate to people and follow Jesus.

One of those ways involves abuse.

Introduction:

It is becoming more and more popular to blame Christianity, God, Jesus, and/or the Bible for just about anything that “goes against the grain” these days. Quite frankly, it's ridiculous. As the title of this article makes clear, the topic I am specifically addressing in this piece is women's rights. Those who blame Christianity and/or the Bible do so without a proper knowledge of Scripture, the culture at the time, history, and they lack hermeneutical and exeget

Sometimes God starts talking to me about twenty things at once, or maybe that's just my own silly head having about 20 thoughts going on at once... Either way, I should just start putting them all down on paper. Right? Right! I hope my blog finds you totally honest. Hey, that is one thing I can attest to, not to put my business out there, but I can be totally honest with myself and being honest with myself means being real with the world and someone else out there is going

You Can Be A Happy Woman

On May 22, 2015, a woman Minister of God referred to men as containers bought by a woman whose contents are not known at the time of purchase. On arrival at home, opening of the containers reaveal the true contents. She said some women found beverages in their containers. Some women found sand in theirs; while many women found granite. Discoveries of women after marriage differ in respect of the true contents of their men. 

This is true. 

Are you surprised? I don't know

"Already, I'm off my diet, skipped exercise class, snacked on chips, and picked up dinner at a fast food restaurant," she groaned.

How can the best intentions, the stoutest resolutions, and the firmest convictions fall so quickly by the wayside? Are we simply weak and self-sabotaging?

Why is it so hard to form healthy habits especially when we know as busy professional women that a successful health plan depends on adopting healthy habits and good intentions.

Is there anything we can do to

We live in a society where worth and value is measured by our possessions, position, and power. So many women struggle against the strain of trying to keep up and compare themselves to other women who seem to have it all. As women, we feel we are not worthy and valuable when what we do would be looked-down by most of society, hence the all too familiar game of comparison and feelings of being unworthy crouch upon us.

Especially for women, we can struggle as we try and find our worth and value
