BE STRONG

 Women are Stronger:  Recent academic study has shown that under extreme conditions such as famines, epidemics and enslavement, women are able to survive longer than men.

Study analyzed the performance of both male and female tennis players during the Grand Slam tournaments and found women fared better under pressure.

From the time a girl reaches puberty until about the age of 50, she is twice as likely to have an anxiety disorder as a man. Anxiety disorders also occur earlier in women than in men.

“It’s hopeless.  This is who I am and I can’t change.”

Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other. But—When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life. Titus 3:3-7
