Biblical Womanhood

, , ()

Jamie Love sits with Trillia Newbell and Kristie Anyabwile on The Front Porch. These ladies discuss what Scripture says biblical womanhood is and why its unique features, which differently flourish in different women, should be embraced and celebrated. That the “Lord thought of women” isn’t just a fact, but an exciting beautiful truth. They discuss the practical outworking of biblical womanhood as well as the theoretical, biblical principles behind this doctrine. From, “What is that?” to “Where do we see this in Scripture?” these ladies joyously and thoroughly tackle tough questions surrounding this doctrine. As Trillia says, “biblical womanhood is not about fru-fru. It’s about the Word of God!” Enjoy more conversations on The Front Porch at www.thefrontporch.org.

    Love the concept of having conversations on the porch!! I don’t usually have biblical conversations on my porch; but when I do, I take the Scripture with me. Stay biblical my friend!! There is just something about NOTHING being on the table when they were talking about biblical womanhood that did not sit well. They obviously have the Word hidden in their heart…it’s just the visual of the empty table. Hmm…

    Thank you ladies for opening discussions on The Porch. I am looking forward to learning about biblical womanhood. The recent post by Pastor T. “Fatherless Daughters and Wayward Desires: Black Women as Portrayed by the Alluring and Maddening Olivia Pope” really spoke to my heart. Growing up as a fatherless white girl, I searched for affection and acceptance of men most of my life. My hideous lustful desires growing up have ruined many peoples lives, including my previous marriage and my children’s lives. Even though I have never watched “Scandal” before, the description of Olivia Pope is too close to home for me.
    I am now married to a man that diligently seeks Christ with all his heart, mind and soul. I am always sitting on go to learn more about how to be a better helpmeet to my husband. Thank you for touching on the subject of submission.

      Hi Diane,

      Thank you for your comment and for the encouragement. I was so moved by your transparency. I wasn’t fatherless but I struggled with lust and sexual sin as a young girl prior to becoming a Christian. The words of the song “Amazing Grace” are not a cliche for me, “amazing grace how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.” Once lost, now found–and found in Christ! I pray you would enjoy the grace of God today. And we are all still learning along with you! Many Blessings, Trillia
