The Beginner’s Bible® has been a favorite with young children and their parents since its release in 1989 with over 25 million products sold. I’ve mentioned books in this series numerous times on my blog and other social media platforms. I really do enjoy the retellings of Bible stories in a simplified format to share with my children. Thanks to Zonderkidz, I am introducing yet another wonderful offering to my children and to my friends and readers here on my blog.
For decades, society has been told that there is no difference between men and women. In God’s eyes however, there are endless differences. In the Bible, and throughout history, examples of strong women influencing their peers are abundant. These stories and tales have survived the ages because the act of women being courageous in the face of many problems speaks loudly to other women.
Female Icons Who Have Inspired
In the days of the Old Testament, women like Ruth were chosen by God to lead entire nations. Ruth didn’t just have a warrior’s temperament, but she had an uncommon spiritual understanding that separated her from her peers. Joan of Arc believed she was called by God to lead armies into battle. Though she was frightened about her divine tasks, she performed them with utter faith, and changed European history. Mother Theresa of Calcutta left a potentially lucrative career to serve in the mission fields of India. Her entire life became a ministry of surrogate motherhood and uncompromising faith.
Today’s Female Spiritual Leaders
The powerful women of history achieve iconic status, but their contemporary counterparts are active and influential. Most women of faith do not lead armies into battle, but they do have important roles. Women faith leaders have immense respect with their peers, especially other women. Human struggles and problems have not changed since ancient times, and women need ways to strengthen their faith during trials. They need spiritual reminders and courageous living examples of how to intensify their relationship with God when problems arise.
One of the most effective and immediate ways women of faith stay connected is through inspirational and motivational speaking engagements. Examples like Vickie Hoefer speaker services are wonderful ways churches and community organizations can foster education for learning to be a courageous woman in the modern world.
The most helpful part about female faith speakers is their ability to address specific concerns. Great icons of the past represented pure ideals and grand achievements. Like the female figures in the Bible, modern women speakers are adept at addressing personal concerns. These concerns include family, career, grief, relationships, and life direction. Speakers tackle individual problems, while highlighting the importance of facing problems with a resounding inner contentment through faith.
Every community organization, church, and ladies group has members who need encouragement on a regular basis. No matter the individual struggle, an inspiring female speaker can set an example on how to live a faithful life that translates into courage and personal renewal. Booking a female speaker is one of the most proactive choices a group can make.
