I just spent enjoyed a weekend with my daughter and some of her friends from college.  I was struck by how strong my Kristen is and what a confident woman she’s grown up to be.  She is soooo much more sure of herself then I was at her age and it makes me both proud and happy.


As I always tell the little three-year-old girls in my class, “use your girl muscles,” but being “strong” has many facets.  Let’s all strive to be both strong women and women of strength.



A Strong Woman vs. a Woman of Strength

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape,

but a woman of strength also kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything,

but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fears.

A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her,

but a woman of strength also gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and works hard at not repeating them,

but a woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be God’s blessings and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman walks sure footedly,

but a woman of strength also knows God will catch her when she falls.
