Welcome to the world, women of the Lord

        So here it is… the new blog! I thought I’d take one post to explain the concept before launching in – despite my excitement to get going! 

        Being a woman in today’s society isn’t easy, even 100 years post-Suffragette movement. Being a woman of God is even harder. Sometimes it feels like there are challenges to the holy and pure life we strive for around every corner, and it can be very difficult to discern the right move to make next!

        At times it’s easy to feel lost and confused, but as with any faith-related dilemma, we have been provided with the ideal manual to overcome these hurdles: the BIBLE!! God doesn’t want us to struggle on alone, He wants us to turn to His Word and receive His guidance.

        The Bible is full of strong, brave, powerful, wise and cunning women, all of whom can teach us very different but equally appropriate lessons about how God works, His plan for our lives, and how to walk as a women of faith. I’ll be focusing on one Biblical character in each post, drawing from references to them in various books of the Bible, and exploring how their lives can relate to women today.

        Given that this whole idea stemmed from Esther 4:14 – ‘For such a time as this’ – I thought it would be apt to start with Esther herself, so keep a look out for the very first character profile shortly! Thanks for reading. God bless you all!


  1. Good luck with the blog, Esther... I have a copy of the poster from Celebrate this year in my office- that scripture is still speaking very powerfully to me.

    Love and Prayers,

  2. Hi Esther, What a brilliant idea! I have added details of your blog to mine and posted a brief item with a link so others may find it. I also recommend sending details to the Catholic Blog Directory: as that will provide a chance of getting the message to an even wider audience. Good luck and keep up this brilliant work - why not also dedicate it to the most important woman in the Bible - Out Lady! God bless!
