Women Walking In Wisdom’s Footsteps™


We've had a few posts here devoted to women:

There was Mass Murder of Women,
Abused and Tortured Women - Mass Murder #2, and Women: From Bad to Better . . .

So, today, I'm going to direct your attention to a woman's blog that's "For women who are humble enough to seek wisdom yet sensible enough to impart it."

It's called: Women Walking In Wisdom’s Footsteps™ and, since it offers to share wisdom from women, I want to, especially, invite men to take a look!

Men? Hell yes!!! I'm a man and I grew up being told that the best philosophers were men. Then, I attained an age to begin to know better. Wisdom is the name of the Goddess Sophia and if you Love her (philo) you are into Philosophy (the Love of Wisdom).

Women Walking In Wisdom's Footsteps™ is ripe and replete with Sophia's Love...

Here's that blogger's profile:

What’s with this eye?

I am the wife of a wonderfully caring man, the mother of a fabulous 2-year old “big girl”, and a teacher of Biblical Studies at a private, college prep high school in Georgia who is seeking to live out her calling as a Woman Walking In Wisdom’s Footsteps.

I’ve been married since April 14, 2001 to a great writer, photographer, speaker, poet, and all-around fix-it man. He also happens to be a great father. I’ve experienced alot of growth as a result of this relationship, but it hasn’t been easy. You’ll read about some of the growing pains I’ve experienced and the many resources God has sent my way to help me grow.

I’ve been a mother since May 20, 2004. My pregnancy was divinely-ordered, and out of it came the most beautiful baby girl you’d ever want to see (of course, every mother says this about their new babies!). I struggled during most of my pregnancy, and almost lost her. I’ll tell you a bit more about these struggles and what I learned from them, hopefully providing some encouragement for those “older” women (35+) who are discouraged because of their age.

I am also a teacher of biblical studies at a Christian college-prep high school in Georgia. God orchestrated this as well, as I was blessed with this position right after I completed my Master of Divinity degree at Emory University. I enjoy studying and teaching both Old Testament and New Testament from an academic point of view; it doesn’t negate faith at all, but it does open up the scriptures in a way that adds so much richness to one’s faith, if they allow it. I’ve been teaching on an academic level for seven years now - it is my calling, and I’m so thankful that I was open to receiving what God had for me. I’ll be speaking a bit about calling and how you can go about discovering yours.

These are a few of my many experiences that I hope will enlighten and encourage you as we seek to gain and share wisdom together.

My goodness gracious Alexander! I so appreciate this wonderfully beautiful gesture by featuring me and my blog on your site. (Just to let you know, the header comes with the theme I'm using; a few others have the same header.) Thank you for your encouragement and kindness! I don't know what else to say!

"The lack of apparent relative philosophical stature has to be because men have been writing the history or women have historically been kept too busy for philosophy. Because in my own personal experience, the women in my family have been WAY wiser than the men, overall, for sure..."

Paul actually sent that last comment but the software burped so I sent it myself...
Sorry Paul...

Thank you for leading me yet again to another wonderful spot on the web.

I am all for women walking in wisdom's footsteps!

Just the other day I was thinking to myself, that many of the clubs like Freemasons and what not are male-dominated. I once wanted to be a Freemason but my husband said I'd have to be in the Order of the Eastern Star.

There are all these clubs for men, and then finally some clubs for women, but why should we keep ourselves separate? Why can't men and women comingle?

"Why can't men and women comingle?"

Your question made me think:

* We're all created in God's Image...

* God isn't Male or Female...

* Therefore there must be a part of our Selves that has nothing to do with our gender...

This may seem "Duh" to you but I feel many folk never think like this...
