Women: Who You Are

Some inspiring words for International Women's Day yesterday:
"You are powerful, and strong, and capable. Read about the women in the Bible: Esther, Ruth, Martha, Mary. These women changed the world forever. Each and every one of you is a woman with that same power and strength, and that same world-changing capability."
