On today’s episode, we are talking about a woman’s highest calling. Is there an ultimate purpose that all women should strive to fulfill? Is it having children? It is getting married and being a helper to her husband? Does it depend on our individual gifts, interests, and circumstances? The topic of purpose is important because purpose is like a springboard that impacts how we live in the here and now, and today matters for eternity. We want to know our God-given purpose and allow that to be a starting point and guide as we navigate life.
But here’s the truth we see throughout Scripture: we all have the same highest calling. We are all called to glorify God. What does this look like? How does motherhood and marriage fit into a woman’s life and calling? Joanna and Stefanie work through this topic and also discuss how we can glorify God no matter our marital status, family make-up, occupation, and life circumstances.
