The Story of The Womanly Woman
With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). Liz, the editor, was finishing up an MBA course when she was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. The final exam for the course was to create a blog and learn how to monetize it. She had begun work on the project but needed to withdraw from classes to begin cancer treatment. Legend has it that a manly man* referred to her as a “girly girl” in a conversation. She thought she was more of a tom boy. Then she realized she was neither a “girly girl” or a “tom boy”. She had passed puberty long ago in a land far away! … [A]nd she shall be called WOMAN… From that point forward, she embraced her identity as a Womanly Woman.
While seeking guideance from the Bible shortly after receiving her cancer diagnosis, Liz encountered a verse that stood out to her more than any other (Jeremiah 29:11): “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Prior to this point, there was no convincing Liz that anyone was on her side. Too many things had gone wrong, too many people were against her, too many issues were happening. This verse is now prominently displayed on a plaque at WomanlyWoman.com Headquarters. It is a reminder to keep plugging along, no matter what happens, knowing that God will have your back.
Cancer was just the beginning to a new life and a life with Christ. Days aren’t always perfect and our site and blog isn’t always perfect either. Liz finds encouragement in 1 Corinthians 10:31 and Colossians 3:23-24 that are both reminders that even though this blog may not be outwardly Christian, God has plans for her and this blog to make a difference in a way that she will never know.
