True Woman

We are having a great time at the True Woman conference.  I’ve already met some of you and it has been so neat to see real faces and hug real bodies!

I’m sitting now in bed, eating dark chocolate and my blogging friend Kathy is in the other bed with her laptop (I just emailed her…how pathetic is that? ;-))  The other friend with us happens to be a reader I met a while back providentially through a mutual friend who is now my own dear friend!

I’ve gleaned so much from the fabulous teaching this weekend and I’ll probably be able to formulate several posts after I process it all.

What this conference is about, in a nutshell, is an attempt to ignite a “counter-cultural revolution” to combat what the feminist movement has done to families.  Given the very real power God gave women concerning their husbands and children, it’s a pretty safe statement to say, “As goes the woman, so goes the culture”. The enemy knows that and has largely used lies of that movement to effect destruction of the home.  What we need is women who, to paraphrase Mary Kassian, “are willing to love God enough to do things His way”.

Yes, that’s the snapshot version and there are lots of other factors involved in our culture’s demise, but revisiting God’s design, which includes the mysterious power of woman, evokes fear and trembling in my heart, and brings me to my knees, begging the Lord to preserve me and keep me and empower me to fulfill the beautiful design He has for me–the design that will reveal His glory in my home and extend to the culture.

Yes, Lord, I want to be a true woman.

    Hey Kelly, I’ve seen you at the conference a few times. And your sweet baby girl! Maybe, if I see you at the Saturday sessions I’ll be able to say hello. I’ve really enjoyed it! By the way, have you seen all the pregnant bellies?? Love it!

  6. I just found your site, Kelly, and am so excited you were at the True Woman Conference. How did you hear about it? I wish I could’ve met you… Any plans to attend the September or October conferences?

    I joked about ducking into the “staff blogger area” to get my blogging fix ;-), perhaps I would have met you there!

    I would love to attend again, but the Lord was gracious to provide a way for me to attend this one. We absolutely had an awesome time! I’ve already got a post ready to publish linking back to the True Woman blog on the piece you wrote about Kay Arthur. Glad to meet you!

    Hey Kelly. Mom and I looked for you after the conference on Thursday to give you our phone number in case you needed anything. We couldn’t find you though. My water actually broke 3 hours after we got home from listening to Nancy. : ) So we missed the rest of the conference. We had jokingly said “Lord just let us hear Voddie and then Zion can come.” And he did. : )

    We do hope to try to rent the cabin sometime this summer and get a chance to visit you again.
