Week 21 – Holy Women Adorn Themselves

Dear Ladies,

There is so much in this verse, “For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands,” 1 Peter 3:5. Holy women in the old time . . . are there any holy women in our time? What constitutes a “holy woman”? Why …

Week 20 – A Meek and Quiet Spirit

Dear Ladies,

“But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.” 1 Peter 3:4

This is a verse to ponder. I will never ever forget in my early days of being a young believer …

Week 19 – What Kind of Adorning

Hello Ladies,

This week’s lesson is another “hot” topic. Everyone has their opinion on it, but I wonder what God’s opinion, the only opinion that counts, is? Our verse is 1 Peter 3:3, “Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel.” By now, you …

Week 18 – Chaste Conversation

Dear Ladies,

“While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear,” (1 Peter 3:2).

We have another short, but very thought-provoking verse in 1 Peter 3:2. Conversation means behavior, and chaste means pure and clean. Thus, a clean and pure behavior should be coupled with fear, and fear does not mean reverence as many would have us to believe, but …

Hello Ladies,

“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives.”
(1 Peter 3:1)

This verse is part of a much larger portion of Scripture, 1 Peter 3:1-6, but we are only focusing on this one verse. This …

Week 16 – Blasphemy

Greetings Ladies,

“To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:5)

Blasphemy is the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God. How does a woman do that? We insult or show contempt for God each and every time we think we …

Week 15 – Obedience to Husbands

Dear Ladies,

“To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:5)

Same verse, so much in it! This week’s lesson focuses on the “O” word—obedience. Women do not like to hear or read about this word. Well, it is fine if we talk about obedience to …

Week 14 – Keepers at Home

Greetings Ladies!

There is just so much in this one verse: “To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed,” Titus 2:5. The lesson in the Joy of Womanhood takes three pages, so we will not cover that here, but I would like to focus on the …
