have yuo ever read "growing strong daughters?" its a book about raising our girls to be strong women, proud of who god created them to be. it talks about embracing their feminity, since god created us that way, but also helping them find their voice, USE their voice and see themselves as valuable - not just "somebody's wife" or "somebody's mother." it doesn't minimize those roles, but talks about the role of women beyond that.
i loved it!!!

Thanks for the book suggestion. I will look into it.
I was so worried I would get angry emails about this post. Thanks for being so nice :)



Hey Girl, You know I love you but I just don't understand the remark about the early church fathers. Just because they believed it at the time doesn't mean you shouldn't learn from what they say today. I mean early medicine used to bleed people and drill holes in their heads. Does that mean we shouldn't believe in modern medicine?

Gene Smith

Which early church fathers? Peter? Paul? James? Sorry, Wendy, if you're going to make a statement like that, you need to back it up with some reference. I'm not denying the statement, but neither am I confirming it - back up the statement with some reference and we can discuss, but to just throw it out there like that sounds more like opinion, or "something you read", than documented fact.

Your "feelings" aside, scripture is quite clear on the roles of men and women - it has nothing to do with "dominance" and everything to do with how we were created. There is nothing in scripture against strong women (see Ruth, Priscilla, Esther, and others). So which part of scripture do you think is incorrect?

See ya...... Gene

Here is one example:
At the Council of Macon, in 584 AD, in Lyons, France, forty-three Catholic bishops and twenty men representing other bishops, debated what must have surely been the most compelling issue of the day:

"Are Women Human?"

After arguing the point, the bishops voted. thirty-two, yes; thirty-one, no. Women were declared human by one vote.

I hope you read the post that I wrote today. I was feeling very angry with God. I'm over it.

Gene Smith

Yes I've read it, and I'm trying to help you buck up, honey. The downfall in the above argument is "After arguing the poing, the bishops voted...". See, the bishops don't get to vote on whether or not women are human - God has already declared them so in scripture.
