I have so enjoyed this journey through Voices. It has been my pleasure to share it with you. I hope that your interest has been piqued and you will consider reading the entire book yourself. I have tried to give you some of the golden nuggets that I found along the way, but surely there are many that I have not mentioned that would bless you.As the book comes to a close, Nancy Leigh DeMoss shares that women today have been disillusioned by the feminist revolution. For many, Desperate Housewives describes their daily experience and they are discouraged and feeling hopeless. But Nancy encourages us to share the hope of Christ:

I believe now is the time for us to seek God for a movement of reformation and revival among Christian women – a Word-driven, Christ-exalting, counter-cultural revolution that will take back the ground that has been given over to the world’s way of thinking for so many years.

Having been born into feminism, it goes against everything I ever knew to turn the other way and seek true womanhood. It truly is a counter-revolution, as it requires that we go against the flow of our culture today. As a married woman with two children, joining this counter-revolution looks like this:

  • I must choose to be faithful to my husband; to love, honor, and pray for him; to accept my role as his help-meet as my highest calling; to submit to his leadership and be the recipient of his Christ-like direction, protection, and provision; and to contribute to the building of our marriage as a picture of Christ and His church.
  • I must choose to nurture my children and to pray for them; to raise them up in the admonition of the Lord; to battle for their souls; to be a godly example to them and to leave them a legacy of prayer.
  • I must choose to teach my daughter that she must not embrace the world into which she was born, rather she will live her life against the flow of our culture. I must teach her to follow Christ, to guard her heart, and to remain pure.
  • Above all, I must choose to be like Christ, as Pastor Voddie Bauchum shares in this video:

Won’t you join me in this counter-revolution? What will it look like in your life?

In hope,
