Inspiration

 
As a woman, are you told in loud, demanding, silent, or subtle ways that somehow your life matters less, that you are less?

 

Let go of the lies, precious woman.
 
You are loved.
You are unique.
You are treasured.
You are resilient.
You are amazing.
 
Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

Not Asking for It

 

Nearly 1 in 5 undergraduate women will experience sexual victimization during their collegiate career. 1 in 5.

Treasures


I thought that my life and existence was hopeless and that the relationship was the only salvageable thing left. In my search for one good and pure thing, I clung onto my boyfriend with all of my strength and sacrificed my dignity to keep him in my life. All of my adoration, love and worship were focused on a person who was too selfish to ever really love me.

In retrospect, I can see that God’s heart was deeply pained by my brokenness. He wanted nothing more than to extend his hand to me and show me my beauty and worth—to help me see the value I never saw in myself.
