Women of God

"Women of God can never be like the women of the world.
The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.
There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.                                      There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined.
There are enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.
           We have enough greed; we need more goodness.
           We have enough vanity; we need more virtue.
           We have enough popularity; we need more purity."

                                                                                       -  Margaret D. Nadauld

Have a blessed day,


  1. Hi Lisa,

    I LOVE this quote I will have to write it down.
    Blessings to you,
    Amy Jo

  2. Oh Lisa....This quote is worthy to pass it on to every woman.

    Thank you so much for sharing it with us.


  3. Delightfully challenging. I will print this out and put it on my fridge (or maybe on my bathroom mirror? or in my Bible? I need to see it often:)
    Hope you'll come by and visit me, as I'm posting a week of encouragement, exhortation and help for stay-at-home moms (especially). I'm stopping by from the Homemaking Linkup today!

  4. love this- it is cause for self-examination. Like Wendy said, I need to see it often. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. Thank you for this reminder. It's a quote that all of us women need to hear from time to time.

  6. Thank you for this simple reminder about what it means to be a woman of God. It's certainly easy to lose that in the world in which we live.

  7. What a good reminder. As Tracey said, it's easy to lose sight of this out in the world because it's such a different message than what we get from the secular world.

  8. I REALLY appreciated this poem, thank you. Yes, indeed we need more God centered woman with ALL these attributes! This blessed me today, thank you again my friend.

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

  9. What a beautiful quote! I am going to print it our and tack it up next to my bed!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog and for the follow. I seem to be having difficulty in following blogs at the mo (every time I press the follow button I am taken to an error page - grrrr), but have added you to my sidebar so that I can visit again ;o)

    Blessings in Christ

  11. Lisa,

    Thank you for visiting my blog! I enjoyed yours as well & am now following you, too :) You have a beautiful family...I think some of my children line up with yours in ages/genders, so we will all enjoy checking back in w/you throughout the school year. All of your quotes are wonderful...I think I might need to post some around where I can see them, too, LOL!


  12. This is definately something I should have by my desk..something for me to see each day.
    I just became a follower...love your blog! ♥

  13. Hi Lisa,

    I look forward to mutually encouraging one another on this journey!!
