Our ladies bible study group are doing a study on biblical womanhood and for our first study we were asked to talk about a woman from the bible or a biblical verse about women ect.
I was just wondering what everyone here would talk about

Esther.. I have always admired her strength. Esther's husband the King divorced his first wife for not taking her proper place. And in that time a woman just didn't approach the king without being called to do so. And to consider at that time she wasn't even in good graces with the king. So when Esther decided to go to the King and stand up for her people she was taking a great risk! I am so uplifted by the strength and courage she showed in order to be obedient to God.

i just recently read the book of Esther and learnt how wise she was. She also turned around the whole issue of her fellow tribe being punished to have the planner being hanged instead. This way i learnt that we can pray for God to send back or reverse the arrows of the enemy and the devil. I say back to sender every evil plan in the name of Jesus.

I would certainly recommend Proverbs 31, what a Godly woman is and does. I would also recommend Deborah, who was a judge in the O.T. and also lead the Israeli army in battle. Abigail, David's second wife as well.

God bless, Shelley, let us know how it goes

I really admire Mary, Jesus' Mother. Not that I am Catholic or anything. But she was a tough young girl for what she had to go through for her Lord! I really feel for her for all the ridicule she had to indoor for "being with child" before she was even married. I know now a days one would think twice about it but back then she should of been stoned to death, that would of been very scary. And like I always say, good thing Mary didn't believe in abortions! Hope this helps Shelley.

I love trying to model myself after Proverbs 31:1-31.....and I can't choose a favorite woman of the Bible, as they are all my heroes (Jesus is my #1 hero).

Well I've done my own personal studies on the 2 women in the Bible that I am named after- Rebekah and Ruth. Rebekah means captivating and the Bible states that Rebekah was very beautiful outwardly. However she was not always so lovely on the inside (she helped her son, Jacob decieve his brother, Esau and his father, Isaac. Ruth means friendship and she certainly showed such loyalty and love to her mother- in- law, Naomi. I find it interesting that scripture never mentions what Ruth looked like. I have always pictured her as outwardly beautiful because of the beauty inside of her. What I take from being named after these 2 women is that I hope I do have some outward beauty but even more so that I will have an inward beauty, because of Christ, that shines out to others.

@Karen, amen! I believe we are alive during these last days 'for such a time as this'.

Some great responses! And like was said above, Proverbs 31, Titus 2, 1 Peter 3, Eph 5, 1 Tim 2:9-15, 1 Tim 5. And there's always those little verses sprinkled throughout Psalms and Proverbs that I just love!

This is a topic close to my heart and there are many wonderful books out there on this topic. Of course, you have to start from Titus 2:3-5. And then the verses in 1 Peter 3;1-6, Genesis, and Ephesians add more to the topic. Some great books on the topic are "Feminine Appeal" by Carloyn Mahaney (and the Girl Talk Blog-, and "Womanly Dominion" by Mark Chanski, and "The Excellent Wife" by Martha Peace. Those are my favorites! I'd be happy to talk about anything else if you have any questions. Have a great Bible Study!
