Women throughout the centuries have endured many challenges along their journey from equal rights of women to women valuing themselves. Women’s successes and failures along their journey can influence individuals and society for eternity, back from the Garden of Eden to present. Women underestimate or exploit this precious gift of influence they have to upbuild or dismantle a nation. However, when a woman loves God, every decision made regarding singleness, marriage, career, and so forth is influenced by her love for God. The world’s views may influence her for a brief moment but the influence of God in her life will prevail.
