what happened to women?

Politics and the pursuit of rights and equality and the differing opinions expressed have a way of bringing the worst out in people. What grieves me most is to see women attack each other out of anger and hurt.

I am grieved that women de-dignify themselves to smack talk against Sarah, Michelle, or Cindy. It ought not to be. We lose something of who we really are and that power of influence that we really have.

So, no matter what side of the woman's banner you live - let's commit to return to being women of grace and dignity toward each other.

The greatest influence a woman can have is when she walks in the dignity of who she is and shows an expression of grace to others who don't carry her opinion.

Will you join me?

Amen Sister!!!
Love it! Just returned from our WM team leadership retreat & this was an important topic of discussion.
We don't have to tear one another down to build ourselves up! (I've been repeating that one to myself lately)

This is a wake up call to me because sometimes I can be guilty of comparing to make myself feel better. I am learning that we are all unique and different and there is no need to tear each other down.
