"For if you keep silent at this time,
 relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place,
 but you and your father's house will perish. 
And who knows whether you have not 
come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"

"What if I am a woman? is not the God of ancient times the God of these modern times? Did he not raise up Deborah, , to be a mother, and a judge in Israel? Did not queen Esther save th elives of the Jews?" ~ Maria W. Steward, 1835 ~
"I am one, but still I am one. 
I cannot do everything

dress impeccably and they remember the woman."

  2. I think my favorite 'quote' is ""Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good." ~ Titus 2:3 ~ This Scripture needs to be imprinted on road signs and billboards. Seems like most women are pigs now and that's why our society is falling apart.
