iroduction: designer womanhood
Designer handbags, designer fashions, designer frames, designer décor . . . a lot of women gravitate toward designer brands because they’re high quality. They’re often especially exquisite. They’re authentic. They’re true to the designer’s precise specifications.
Did you know that God has a divine design for womanhood? And His plan is spectacular—far more attractive than the cheap, fake imitations the world promotes!
The women’s movement rejected the idea that God has a divine design for womanhood. It proposed that it was up to women to decide what womanhood was all about. It taught us to believe that our lives—and the choices we make—are all about us. It led us to think that the differences between male and female aren’t all that important —that we can arbitrarily choose our roles, and determine the meaning of gender. It encouraged us to adopt a new, feminist-inspired design.
The current cultural ideal for womanhood encourages women to be strident, sexual, self-centered, independent, and—above all—powerful and in control. But sadly, this model of womanhood hasn’t delivered the happiness and fulfillment it promised.
We have both been actively involved in ministering to women for more than thirty years and have seen this sadness and disappointment in spades. Again and again, we have witnessed the emotional and relational wreckage of hearts and homes that have gone with the flow and bought into our culture’s view of what it means to be a woman. We have received countless letters and emails and looked into the eyes of thousands of women who feel the deep pain of unfulfilled expectations.
In many cases, this dysfunction is the unavoidable consequence of living in a fallen world. But far too often, it’s apparent that we are seeing the fallout of widespread confusion and faulty beliefs about a woman’s design and mission.
You see, the Bible teaches that it’s not up to us to decide what womanhood is all about. It says that God created male and female for a vital, specific purpose. His design isn’t arbitrary, unimportant, or expendable.
Your womanhood is not a biological accident. It’s not a matter of chance. God was intentional when He made you a woman. And He wants you to discover, embrace, and delight in the beauty of His spectacular design. He wants you to enjoy something so much more valuable than the world’s cheap imitations and knockoff s. He wants you to be a True Woman!
What exactly is a True Woman? She is, quite simply, a woman who is being molded and shaped according to
