Defining who a woman is or should be is not an easy task. We so often let our identity as women be based on our roles, relationships or achievements. Our culture is constantly creating and attempting to force upon us its own definition of who a woman should be and what she ought to be defined by. In the midst of this, God’s design for women has been misconstrued or simply dismissed by culture and, sadly, at times, misrepresented and dishonored by the church.
The Heroine series is an opportunity and an invitation to take a clearer look at what God says about feminine strength. His Gospel gives truth, clarity, and beauty to everything in life — including femininity and masculinity — and it is these truths that can truly free and empower women to be who God has created them to be.
