Three Teens Define “A Real Woman”
Written by Philip Hainline, Heidi Reimer, and Maria Reimer at the respective ages of 16, 19, and 17.

A real woman . . .…is glad she’s a woman and rejoices in her femininity, expressing it through her attitude, appearance and bearing. (1 Timothy 2:9-10)
…does not compete for equality with men or chafe at God’s design for male and female, but delights in and understands the importance of her calling to complement man’s role. (1 Timothy 2:11-12, Ephesians 5:22-24)
…values the cultivation of her mind and diligently seeks after wisdom and knowledge. (Proverbs 22:17-21, 2:2-6)
…realizes her imperative need to allow the Holy Spirit to control her emotions and expressions of them. (James 1:19-20)
…does not wallow in self-pity or make a habit of voicing complaints, but radiates cheerfulness and joy. (Proverbs 15:15, Proverbs 17:22)

A real woman . . .…appreciates her father’s protection, and respects and submits to his authority. In so doing, she is preparing herself to exercise the Biblical role in her relationship with a possible future husband. (Ephesians 5:33-6:3, 1 Peter 3:1-2)
…is trustworthy and gains the respect of those around her. (Proverbs 31:11)
…restrains herself from listening to, or participating in gossip, but instead speaks with wisdom and discretion. (Proverbs 11:12-13, 22, 20:19, 3:11)
…encourages and builds up those around her instead of criticizing and tearing them down. (1 Thessalonians 5:11, Ephesians 4:29)
…does not have a nagging, contentious or manipulative manner in which she deals with others. (Judges 16:16, Proverbs 21:9, 19, 26:21)
…is not boisterous or loud in her speech or actions but is characterized by a gentle and quiet spirit. (Proverbs 9:13, 1 Peter 3:4)

A real woman . . .…portrays chastity, modesty and reverence in her manner, and wears the ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is her true beauty. (1 Peter 3:3-4, Titus 2:4-5)
…is not offended by respect shown her through gentlemanly courtesies (opening doors, etc.) but cultivates the differences between the sexes that make her worthy of this deference. (1 Peter 3:7, Mark 10:6)
…seeks to make God her number one desire and the Lover of her soul, knowing that only He can fully satisfy. (Psalm 73:25, Psalm 63:1)
…uses her years of singleness to seek and serve God without distraction, and is content to leave the details of her future to Him. (Psalm 73:25, Philippians 4:11)

A real woman . . .…does not relate to members of the opposite sex in a flirtatious or forward manner, but instead saves all her passion for her future husband. (Thessalonians 4:3-8, Proverbs 6:25, 1 Corinthians 7:1)
…holds her virginity before marriage sacred and will not compromise it for anything. (This one goes for guys too)(1 Timothy 5:22)

Hey all you fellow bloggers out there!
No, I am not attaining stripes green or any other color on my person :) Us kids officially got our green stripes on Thursday! The test was exhausting but the result was great! It was so neat. The day before I just told the Lord to take ALL of me. So on Thursday I just gave my day to Him. A lot of cool stuff happened but that is for another time!
We had origionally thought that we were going to get tested. That fact was confirmed when Mr. McClurg (The head teacher) went to the multi-purpose room with pads and stuff during warm-up. Then as some other kids and us went out Jim (another teacher) looked at Jenny and said "Good luck!". That was the final clue! :) We aren't a totally clueless family! So we tested and it was TOUGH! But good! At 1st we thought that we hadn't passed because they didn't have the ceremony at the end of class so we were totally bummed! But then Mr. McClurg came up to us and reassured us we had indeed passed and were indeed green stripes! What a relief! We also found out that he is a Christian! How cool is that!?
So we had the ceremony on Thursday! Here are some pics...sorry the resolution isn't the best! Enjoy:
This is Craig one of our other instructors doing my stripes. We think that he looks like Hayden Christinson from Star Wars but we think that he is a lot cooler! In fact, his whole family is awesome! His Dad,sister, and him are black belts and his brother is a blue belt. His Mom orders stuff and does a lot of other stuff. They are really neat! So there is that...

This is Abby and Jenny getting there stripes. Unfortunently, Mom didn't get one of Danny getting his. So he already has them. Craig is doing them, His Dad is behind him giving him the tape 'cause he is so slow :), and Jim is the one standing at gimbee. The 2 little boys are new yellow belts, they also tested on Tuesday.

After Craig finally finished putting on our stripes all the teachers congragulated each of us with a handshake.

We bowed to our teachers as a show of respect...

Then we turned and faced the class. We bowed to them and they bowed to us in recognition.

As we headed back to line-up we were excited knowing that the next goal to start working towards was (and is) our green belt. We also felt a deep satisfaction knowing that we were (and are) one step closer to becoming black belts!

Well, that is that! One more exciting tidbit! We know are the proud owners of a new van! :) God was in it from beginning to finish and now we have a show-room condition marron van that God provided for an incredibly low price! To Him be the glory! Great things He has done! :) God bless! :)
