      I am loving this book! Divine Design by Mary Kassian and Nancy

      I am loving this book! Divine Design by Mary Kassian and Nancy Leigh Demoss is a joyful, beautifully written Bible study that can be completed in eight weeks or read in one night like I did.
    True Womanhood is a thing of beauty, and deep in our hearts we women know it is our calling. Portions of our world today are parched lands of gender confusion. What is the point of being a woman? Why are we so different from men? Are we different from men?
    Most answers fall far short of Scripture's definition of True Womanhood.
    True Womanhood is a well of clear water in the parched land. When we find out that there is such a thing as True Womanhood we desire to have it ourselves.
    To help meet this need True Woman 101: Divine Design was penned. This book really could be called True Woman 101, because Nancy and Mary write about so many things here that pertain to womanhood. They write with winsome spirits and without compromise.
    This book is written by women who have learned in God's Word how much He loves women, and how high and holy is the office of Womanhood and they are eager to share it with all women. Because of the joy with which it is written this book would be good for mother/older daughter study, study with a group of ladies or for a woman on her own who is curious about what Biblical Womanhood is like.
    God is doing something in the hearts of women all over the world- He is teaching them to love being women; to be true women. This is what our world needs, true women.
    Before we can live it we must understand what a true woman is "She is, quite simply, a woman who is being molded and shaped according to God's design. She's a woman who loves Jesus and whose life is grounded in, tethered to, and enabled by Christ and His Gospel. As a result, she is serious about bringing her thoughts and actions in line with what the Bible says about who she is, and how she ought to live. She is a woman who rejects the world's pattern of womanhood and gladly wears God's designer label instead," Mary and Nancy tell us.
    Saying we wear God's label is another way of saying we bear His Image as women, and His Name as Christians. We show off God's Glory in a way only redeemed womanhood can.
    We are living canvasses on which God paints His pictures!!!
    Isn't that awe-inspiring?
    Each Christian woman can be part of God's plan to show His truth to the world through her life.
    We are created for this; we can live it out, we can love our role as women, and we can show off God's Divine Design, bringing Glory to God.
    Our place as a Bearer of God's Image, a wearer of God's label, gives us Dignity, and Worth.
    Our Redemption in Christ gives us Life, Hope, and the Ability to live for Him.
    That is the problem with feminism- it is women aborting God's plan for them and defining their purpose themselves. This is futile, because they are made with a Divine Design that can't be hidden. Our Divine Design testifies to God's plan for us and also to the Gospel, a plan that exists for our great good and His Greater Glory.
    The differences between men and women are not to be rubbed out, ignored, spoken against, laughed at, or blurred to androgyny. These differences exist ultimately to point to Christ and His Bride and to remind the world of God's purposes.
    The femininity of a woman who lives with a quiet spirit that trusts God and a gentleness that serves His people paints a picture of the Church. A man's masculine strength to protect and willingness to sacrifice himself to die for his Bride paint a picture of Christ.
    This is why the precepts in Scripture are eternal, and can be lived out by every Christian woman, in every age, in every place, because they are lived out on earth to point to something heavenly, to point to Christ.
    The truth of that was wonderful to hear, and it reminds us just how great our responsibility is.
    For example, the call to be homemakers is in part because a home made homey and restful by a woman who loves her family is a portrait of Heaven itself, the believers true home.
    Our actions and way of being and living as a Christian women are testimonies to the Gospel.That is why God made Man and Woman, to show His Glory to a watching world in a way one gender alone can't. That is beautiful womanhood. That is why we can say, I Love Being a Woman!

    Understand who you are and your purpose

    My church began the Titus 2 mentoring program using this book. This book brings out some really great points and makes connections about the purpose of marriage, roles, and connections to the Bible and our world. It has a wonderful study guide approach and asks some really thought provoking questions that really make you think. I am glad to have a mentor to talk to about this as I am working through this book. It really has given me a new perspective on who I am, my purpose, and my place in my marriage, and world.
