What in the World is a “True Woman”?

Hey, ladies! A couple weeks ago, I left my computer and cubicle behind, and hit the streets asking women some tough questions about what it means to be a true woman. While I’m glad I didn’t have to answer these questions on the spot, I will say that there’s a whole lot of confusion amongst women about who we are, why we exist, and what will make us truly happy. Watch this short video and you’ll see what I mean:

 
 

You can listen to a few more of the responses I heard on the streets on today’s Revive Our Hearts radio program. You’ll also hear highlights from the Ft. Worth True Woman Conference this past weekend, including what True Woman speakers have to say about what it means to be a “true woman.” 

So, how about you? If I stopped you on the street--assuming you weren’t in a huge hurry--how would you answer the question . . . “What is a true woman?’ I’d love to hear your thoughts! (No pressure to get it perfect. Really. On-the-spot answers are great.)
