Women need women. Not because we should be a seperate group from the rest of the church, but because we can support each other to build up the church. Now, more than ever, women should be reaching out, stepping out, and speaking out. In today's world we're being confronted with challenges never before faced by any generation. Dramatic social changes...an astronomically high divorce rate...a large percentage of mothers working outside the home...materialism that has deceived us into thinking that "things" are more important than people...the media-inspired concept that only career women are fulfilling themselves as individuals. All of this has contributed to unrest, dissatisfaction, and confusion. As women of God, our self-esteem lies in the immense value that God, our Creator, has placed upon and within us. Our Creator has not only given us a priceless position in His creation, He has also provided us with clear instruction as to our proper place in other women's lives. Whether we involve ourselves in formal programs, such as weekly Growth Trail Groups (which, by the way, I highly recommend and you can find out more about HERE), or we simply choose to care for those in our circle of acquaintances informally, we have a wonderful biblical mandate for such relationships. God's Word promises every Christian woman strength, direction, and support, not only for herself, but for those she wants to help.
