You Are Celebrated! {Happy International Women's Day}

Originally published Thursday, 08 March 2012.


There is just too much to say about the feminine tribe. Regardless of whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, working woman, pastor’s wife, single grad student, floral-and-filigree women’s ministry leader or a hear-me-roar feminist rights activist…

You are celebrated. Whoever you are, you are beautiful, significant, and empowered because you are made in the image of Your Maker.

Here are some of my favorite quotes to commemorate the day:

 ”Women are the real architects of society.”~ Harriet Beecher Stowe 

Then the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.’ … And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.” ~ Genesis 2:18, 22

“Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.” ~ Faith Whittlesey 

“The fastest way to change society is to mobilize the women of the world.” ~ Charles Malik

“I do not wish [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.” ~ Mary Wollstonecraft

“‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May it be to me as you have said.’” ~ Luke 1:38
