Bessey calls us to be Spiritual Midwives, Patron Saints, and to allow barriers to be broken, but in a Kingdom way. Her book encourages women's ministries to grow beyond arts and crafts into a ministry that has "room for everyone. You have a great women's ministry when you have detoxed from the world's views and unattainable standards for women and begun to celebrate the everyday women of valor, sitting next to you, and when you encourage, affirm, and welcome the diversity of women - their lives, their voices, their experiences - to the community."
We must realize that God's will shines through everything if we are following Him. In John 16, Jesus is trying to explain to His disciples what is about to happen to Him. They ask a lot of questions, and Jesus tells them that they will be faced with trials and sorrows, and even people who will hurt them in God's name. But. There's a But!!! (Don't you love it when there is a but?!) "But, take heart, because I have overcome the world."
