International Women’s Day

For International Women’s Day,

I will enjoy the knowledge that my family loves and appreciates me.

I will go out of my way today to model godly womanhood through acts of service to those around me.

I will try to demonstrate grace when I’m frustrated.

I will speak words of Truth and encouragement because I value those around me, not because of gender or race, but because they are my brothers and sisters scattered around this globe.

I will demonstrate what it means to accept and fulfill obligations by being reliable and responsible in whatever work, inside and outside of my home, I have been giving to do.

I will demonstrate strength by enduring when I’m emotionally, mentally, and physically tired.

I will model wisdom by not jumping to conclusions about situations.

I will model self-control in my speech and actions so that I can be an example to those around me.

And if I fail in any or all of these things, I will clothe myself in humility and ask for forgiveness where needed.

This is how I will choose to celebrate being a woman today and everyday.

About Regina Etter

I’m a daughter of the King, grafted in by grace and trying to walk daily in His truth. I live in Denver with my best friend and hubby where I help others as a Nutritional Cleansing Coach, and we minister together at Mountain States Baptist Church. I’m a homeschooling mom of 4, with two more away at college.

I am not so different from you. There are many things that happen in my life everyday that I have no control over. I can’t determine what will happen, but I can determine how I will think and I how I will act. I choose to take action when I feel like giving up. I choose to make a difference when it doesn’t seem to matter. I choose to love the unlovable. I choose the rough and narrow path, because it strengthens me. I choose to make joy a part of who I am.
