About the Editor

Image Copyright 2013 Jen W Photography - Elizabeth Barnett Editor of WomanlyWoman.comI want this site to be a place for women to connect.  For me it has been a place to “get real” and be real about who I am and who I am becoming.  This blog isn’t about me though.  It’s about women everywhere.  It’s about what it means to be a woman.  It’s about what it doesn’t mean to be a woman.  I am not the center of this blog.  In fact, I believe that God is using me to make a difference in this world (and world wide web) through this domain name.

During the time I have been working on this blog, I have become a new person.    Although most of my posts are about entertainment, health, beauty, and shopping savings occasionally those topics relate to my life.  In my real life, I am a real personI struggle with real issues.  God has given me this blog as a platform not just for my own issues or opinions, but as a way to communicate what he is doing in my life.  Sometimes people misinterpret what it means to be a Christ follower, or what it means to be a Christ follower to me, so if you are wondering about that you might want to read this post I made on Facebook and comment.
