True Woman '08

Satan has really done a number on women today. “I wish I felt more fulfilled,” a woman told me, recently. “I really don’t know what God expects of me, as a woman.” My heart went out to her. I remember having those feelings years ago.

God graciously revealed not only His love and grace to me when I became a Christian in 1971; He also opened up a whole new way of thinking. Although I’d never been a typical feminist, I did have some feminist attitudes. I’d “picked them up” through the media, books, and in observing some of the women in my sphere of life. When God showed me His plan for women—not to be a doormat; not to be a manipulator—I remember how it felt to release some of those attitudes. I softened into biblical femininity, but I also toughened up with biblical resolve. God’s Word made a huge difference in forming my understanding of why God made me a woman.

Are you searching to find the “True Woman” in you? I am delighted that a unique conference for women will take place this fall—a gathering that will call women back to true biblical womanhood. It’s one of the best choices I’d recommend to any woman seeking direction from God.

True Woman ’08 will take place in Chicago, October 9-11. Speakers include author and radio teacher Nancy Leigh DeMoss of Revive Our Hearts Ministries; author and pastor John Piper; Joni Eareckson Tada of Joni and Friends; radio show host Janet Parshall; author and Women’s Studies professor Mary Kassian; Fern Nichols of Moms in Touch International; pastor’s wife and author Karen Loritts; a dozen powerful workshop leaders; and Irish composer-artist team Keith and Kristyn Getty, leading worship.
