33 Ways to Spark True Womanhood

Is your heart burning to see more women experience the joy and freedom of walking in God's unique design for womanhood . . . just like you have? Wondering how to get the fire ignited? You're not alone. In fact, it's one of the most frequently asked questions around here at Revive Our Hearts.

Take heart, leader! We bet one of these thirty-three ideas will be just the spark you're waiting for to fire it up. (By the way, you can contact us directly for more help!)

  1. In your local church, the starting point is to meet with your pastor and pastor's wife or women's ministry director to present the True Woman Manifesto or True Woman 101: Divine Design Bible study. Obtain approval and confirmation that it fulfills the church's vision.
  2. Find like-minded women to form a prayer group to seek God's direction.
  3. Keep prayer at the forefront. Commit to the long haul when change seems slow or resistance arises.
  4. Start with groups or programs already in place, and incorporate biblical womanhood as the context. Launching something new isn't always the wisest choice.
  5. Strike a match by initiating conversations about what it means to be a true woman. Share what you're learning with friends and family members.
  6. Target women of influence and the key leaders God is presently using to multiply impact.
  7. Form a small group to study True Woman 101: Divine Design, True Woman 201: Interior Design, Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together, or Becoming God's True Woman While I Still Have a Curfew (for young teens).
  8. Examine your season of life: If leading a small group is too much responsibility, enlist a co-leader and share the load. Or, go solo by mentoring one lady at a time.
  9. Gather in a home to view and discuss True Woman conference videos.
  10. Distribute True Woman Manifestos. Have them available at every woman's gathering. Use it as teaching and talking points.
  11. Enlist a group of friends to download the 30-day Journey through the True Woman Manifesto. Meet online or in a coffee shop for weekly encouragement.
  12. Give away Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth's Biblical Portrait of Womanhood booklet to neighbors, coworkers, students or family members.
  13. Comprise small groups of mixed ages to foster Titus 2 mentoring.
  14. Live it out: Be a true woman in every sphere of life-home, work, church, and community.
  15. Become an adopted grandmother to a younger mom. Model womanhood and lend practical assistance. Pray earnestly for her family.
  16. Start a book club to study resources on womanhood such as Voices of the True Woman Movement or these True Woman books.
  17. Intentionally connect older and younger women within the established groups at your church. Get seniors praying for young moms, sharing simple meal menus, or teaching homemaking skills.
  18. Collaborate with the college ministry to plan opportunities to reach the next generation.
  19. Send care packages to college students with womanhood bookletspamphlets and bookmarks available from Revive Our Hearts.
  20. Feature True Woman testimonies at Bible studies and events.
  21. Host a True Woman event using the True Woman Event Kit. Consider joining efforts with other local churches.
  22. Hold a Manifesto Ceremony with ladies signing a poster-sized version which can be framed and displayed prominently at women's events.
  23. Develop a culture of moms and teens participating together in women's events. Go the extra mile to make teens feel welcomed.
  24. Organize a mentoring mixer to cast a vision of women linking arms and why we need to be connected in multi-generational relationships.
  25. Initiate an ongoing Titus 2 or True Woman Discipleship program under the umbrella of Women's Ministry or Adult Ministries.
  26. Promote the use of 30-day Challenges. Start a Facebook group to share experiences.
  27. Have a group of friends sign up for 30-day True Woman Makeover and meet weekly for discussion and accountability.
  28. Speak to Sunday school classes and senior groups on the value of sharing their life experience. Have a younger woman express her desire for friendship with older women.
  29. Enfold new church members into an opportunity to learn womanhood as an entry point into women's ministry.
  30. Invite a friend or women's leader to attend a True Woman conference.
  31. Download and recommend the Revive Our Hearts mobile app to learn more.
  32. Invite a group of teens to study Becoming God's True Woman While I Still Have a Curfew by Susan Hunt and Mary Kassian. Connect them to the Lies Young Women Believe blog.
