anonymous asked:

Do you know of any books/bible studies that focus on the topic of being a woman/femininity and aren't all about grooming yourself for a husband? Im not interested in marriage & a lot of the ones I've come across are all about how to prepare for "the one". It's always about shaping yourself for some man and never about shaping yourself simply for the sake of Christ. Sorry for the added rant. I'm just burnt out from all of these writers who teach I'm only only created for men and marriage ๐Ÿ˜”

Hi friend,

I had someone recommend this book to me the other day. I haven’t read it yet, but I plan on it. 

Here’s a link to Bible Studies for Women on Lifeway. 

No need to apologize for the rant. I totally understand, and I like your thoughts. We should be shaping ourselves for the sake of Christ. 

I’m not sure of any specific books/studies that focus on the topic of being a woman/femininity. I’d be interested in reading some as well.

Can any of my followers please help me out?


All my love,

S.

It Turns Out Christians Have More Abortions Than Any Other Religious Group In America...
A survey by a Christian research group suggests 70 percent of women who've had an abortion identify as Christian.

“…a Christian research group has released the findings of a national survey containing a startling revelation: 70 percent of women who have abortions in the U.S. are Christians, and 23 percent of those women identify as Evangelical Christians.

The survey, which polled 1,038 women who’d had abortions from across the U.S., found that almost 40% of those women were attending a Christian church once a month or more at the time of their abortion, but that a majority of the women who attended church regularly kept their abortion a secret from their church community, mostly out of fear of being judged or condemned. Almost half of the women agreed that “pastors’ teachings on forgiveness don’t seem to apply to terminated pregnancies,” and 54 percent agreed that churches “over-simplify decisions about pregnancy options.

Even sadder? Sixty-four percent of the women agreed that “Church members are more likely to gossip about a woman considering an abortion than help her understand her options.

Disturbingly, there’s also anecdotal evidence to suggest that Christians who have received abortions are among the most vocal opponents of abortion rights

In her recent memoir “My Life On The Road,” journalist and activist Gloria Steinem writes, “When I visit clinics, I’ve learned to ask the staff if they have ever seen an [anti-abortion] picketer come in, have an abortion, and go back to picketing again. From Atlanta to Wichita, the answer is yes.

Steinem says that when she initially expressed disbelief over these stories, a clinic staff member explained to her “that women in such anti-abortion groups are more likely to be deprived of birth control and so to need an abortion. Then they feel guilty — and picket even more.”

From every angle — from the horrific actions taken by Dear to the large numbers of Christian women secretly seeking abortions — it’s clear that the current strategy of Christian anti-choicers is doing far more harm than good.
