Bethany Beal and I discuss womanhood on this episode of WWL. In this age-- when sexuality is the currency and gender roles can be thwarted-- Bethany encourages us to look to our Creator and his design rather than ourselves and our desires. She reminds us of our purpose and urges us to walk the path of being a girl defined by God.
A little bit about the guest:
Bethany Beal is head-over-heels in love with her best friend and husband, David, and is the super proud mommy of Davey Jr. She is the cofounder of Girl Defined Ministries and is passionate about spreading the truth of biblical womanhood through writing, speaking, and mentoring young women. To her family and close friends, she is simply a tall blonde girl who is obsessed with iced lattes and can’t get enough of her sweet baby Davey Jr.
Sex, Purity, and the Longings of a Girl’s Heart
Bethany is reading The Well Watered Woman by Gretchen Saffles, and listening to Exploring My Strange Bible, and The Briefing. She is being refreshed by taking baths and drinking iced coffee.
“The essence, truly, of Biblical femininity-- of Biblical womanhood-- [...] it truly is about becoming less about me and more about Christ.” - 14:28
“Bringing our sins into the light was the most freeing thing that ever happened to us.” - 30:39
Questions for consideration:
- In what ways are you seeking to make your name great, rather than Christ?
