I am starting a new Beth Moore bible study. Man, I love Beth Moore! She is so real. I love that she very animatedly admits her flaws and shortcomings. It makes me feel like I'm not so alone. It always surprises me when she mentions her own insecurity. I can't help but think, what does this women have to be insecure about?!? She is beautiful, outgoing, and has a fun-loving personality. But just that single admission, is probably what makes her so lovable.
This bible study is about Ester and why it can be tough being a woman.
I have to admit, I love everything about being a woman, and wonder what this study will teach me. In fact, the only benefit to being a man that I can think of is that they can pee standing up. Well, that and they don't deal with the ups and downs of hormones. Then of course what comes along with those hormones. It would be nice to forgo all of that. Oh yes, and then having to deal with the drama other women stir up. Men are generally easier to work with. (I say generally, not a rule.) Then I hear child birth is painful and pregnancy is annoying. Actually come to think of it, maybe there are more benefits to being a man than I thought.
Well, everything aside, I think we also need to remember how blessed it is to be a woman. Here are my top five reasons:
After six years of infertility, she was blessed with the adoption of her oldest daughter who now is a teenager. Six years later, she finally became a mother a second time, this time with a baby through a donated egg and ivf. Throughout that time, she fostered nine babies and toddlers, met wonderful women who helped her grow, and learned to rely on Jesus. She started this blog with the hope that she could share her joy, experience, and willingness to grow with others, whether they battle infertility, toddlers, or teens.
