This video goes along with Part One - Femininity Gone Wrong and is Chapter 3 in the "Girl Defined" book titled, "Counterfeit Womanhood You've Done Me Wrong". In reading this chapter in particular I saw a lot of myself. I tend to think of myself as a fairly independent person. I don't frequently ask for help and when offered I have a tendency to refuse it. While it is wonderful to be independent and know how to handle things on your own it also can be a slippery slope into what the authors state as "living the culture's definition of a strong woman.". That isn't who I want to be or how I hope people see me. My hearts desire is to be seen as woman who is strong because of her faith in God, not because of her faith in herself alone.
Give Video 1 a watch and I hope you follow up by reading "Girl Defined, God's Radical Design for Beauty, Femininity, and Identity".
