It's no secret that it is disrespectful for a man to call an honorable woman a "bitch" and the average woman would also agree that it's disrespectful for a man to physically abuse her. What many of us don't realize is that men disrespect us without us even noticing. A man also disrespects you in the following ways:
When many believers are looking to be "encouraged" they are usually looking to hear things like,,,
"You can do it! Gods got your back!" or
"Hang in there! Everything is going to be all right!"
Every Woman who is seeking to please The Most High and to become a woman of standard SHOULD have women supporting them, advising them, AND rebuking them.

In your portfolio you should have women who:
Boyfriends are sooooooo overrated. I remember having boyfriends in my teenage years. It would always go a little sumthin' like this:
- Meet "Timmy"
- Make Timmy my boyfriend
- Give Timmy my time, energy, and heart.
- Watch things with Timmy sour

- Repeat #s 1-6 until David comes along
The song that never ends right?
In order for us women to begin forming healthy relationships with one another…we will need to approach starting a friendship the same way we should approach evaluating prospective husband.
For some reason, no matter how many times it is proven over and over again that single motherhood is dangerous to society and ultimately NOT the business, there are always women (and simp men) out to defend it's existence.
I became a single mother at 17 years of age and out of all my 8 years of being a "baby mama" I have never once attempted to defend my status or my severely unintelligent decision to get knocked up by someone who wasn't even remotely committed to me. I am bewildered that many people do *shrug*.
I have decided to list below (and rebuke) real arguments I have either heard with my own ears in conversation or seen with my own eyes on social networks used to condone baby mamahood.
I'm really starting to not like the phrase "All we can do is pray" as I feel like it is rhetoric that cultivates a spirit of laziness within the body of Christ and is incredibly insulting to our Creator who did not intelligently design our brain so that when we get off our knees we get up looking like uninformed, passive deer in head lights.

Sooooooo this video was created by a brother of mine a few years back.
Although he created it for the ears of men, everything he is saying is great for women to hear as well.
Please don't let the title or my bro's blunt delivery deter you from receiving the great message because you will defintely miss out. 🙂
Let me know in the comments what you think!
I obtained 3 Bachelor's degrees, a Master's degree, AND a professional license in accounting ALL while being a single mother.
Does this really make me a STRONG woman?

Because I promote modest dress codes for women of standard, I often get the question
"Well, what do you suggest we wear to swim TorahCents??? A sweater and some JEANS????"
(P.S. If the only modest attire you can think of to wear to the beach is a sweater and some jeans…you don't deserve to go to the beach. Just sayin…)
