We, Filipino women, are evolving in many ways, even better. We learn to learn more things, explore more places, and discover many taste and opportunities this world can bring. Being a Christian woman for 4 years taught me one thing that’s more precious than this world can offer:
WOMAN WITH GOD AS HER FATHER IS PURE JEWEL and WORTH PURSUING.
Expressing my individuality, showing self-confidence, inspiring others and improving self-esteem now improve selflessly when God comes in and showed me a better way to be woman. With the help of His Word, church community and reliable Christian books, I’m continuously walking this beautiful journey and be as a woman He wants me to be.
Last International Women’s Month may be over, but my friends from the Christian publishing house, OMF Literature joins in the celebration of the last Women’s Month through new books for spiritual growth for women from women authors. What could be an ideal self-help for ladies than inspirational books written by those who best understand the woman’s psyche.
Last week of march, they organized an event to celebrate Christian womanhood and the launch of these new books entitled: “It’s Our Time: A Christian Perspective on Women Empowerment.” This event aims to educate and empower women, in all stages of life, to live and celebrate their season according to God’s Word. The speakers of the event are the same authors of the new books launched by OMF Literature. They spoke about different topics that speak well in our daily grind: singlehood, beauty, insecurities and worthiness as God’s princess.
