What is a True Woman?
Is it a woman who can accomplish much in a little bit of time?
Is it a woman who is successful in business and at home?
Is it a woman who seemingly achieves perfection?
Is it a woman whose outward beauty turns heads and attracts attention?
Is it a woman who demands her rights and isn’t taken advantage of?
Every day the world answers this question for women. And every day the description changes ever so slightly based on culture’s new ingredients. Some days a true woman is one who wears the latest styles. Then a true woman is one who is frugal in her dress. The next day a true woman is one who bakes everything from scratch. Then she is known for only serving her family whole foods from the earth. Later she is a woman who doesn’t take no for an answer and stands up for herself with pride. Then she is praised for her keen observation and slow speech.
Like a pendulum that never stops swinging, women sway back and forth striving to achieve each new title given for a True Woman. The pendulum is misleading, but we stand there chasing it anyway. No matter how close we come there is always a hole that cannot seem to be filled.
Women were not created to chase the swinging pendulum of the culture.
We are not designed to bend to each day’s new definition of a True Woman. Striving. Competing. Achieving.
We are simply meant to rest. Rest in God’s sovereignty. Rest in His truth. Rest in His provision. Rest in His desires. Rest in His plan.
A True Woman is found in a place of rest.
As daughters in Christ our identity of true womanhood is already defined. This truth allows us to rest.
In only one month, September 20-22, you have the opportunity to do just this – find a renewed place of rest – at the True Woman 2012 Conference.
At True Woman ’12 women who desire rest from all the battling messages in our culture will come together to authentically seek Jesus for:
- Refreshed understanding of our design and mission as women.
- Restored lives that reflect Christ’s beauty and heart.
- Renewed passion for passing God’s Truth on to the next generation.
- Revival: we need to urgently plead for God to pour out His Spirit on us and our land.
Well-known Christian authors and speakers such as Nancy Lee DeMoss, Mary Kassian, Joni Eareckson Tada, Priscilla Shrirer, and Janet Parshall will be speaking along with speakers for the teen track. There will also be a worship band.
Each day of the three-day conference will include main sessions and breakout sessions for you to grow deeper in your understanding about God’s design for a True Woman.
Also, join my friends Leigh Ann and Nikki at Intentional by Grace and over 100 other women as they prepare for the True Woman 2012 Conference by doing a study of biblical womanhood using the book True Woman 101 by Mary Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss (Moody Publishers). Simply ask to join their private Facebook community where they discuss weekly God’s definition of a true woman. And make sure to buy the book to follow along!
