In many cases, a woman's intuition has led toward wholesome and courageous paths even in the face of ridicule or opposition.

Women of faith show strength in many unsung ways. Whether it's daily chores, giving a child undivided attention, or checking in on a neighbor they seem to have a unique gift for sharing the love of Jesus Christ with others. Regardless of age, social standing, or family status, God blesses each individual with gifts and talents with which they can enhance the world around them.
What are some examples of strength and faith that you have seen from the women in your life?
Being a mother may not win you any overwhelming accolades from today’s busy world. In fact, in some cases, women receive quite the opposite. However, with children and youth facing so many challenges, there could be no higher calling. Mothers play a huge part in offering the life skills, security, and love that is so vital for the next generation of the human family to progress and thrive. Whether or not women have children of their own, they should never underestimate their ability to help young people find belonging.
