Notes to Women’s purpose is to encourage, inspire and motivate women to reach their utmost potential and to enjoy the quality of life God has planned for them.  Through devotionals women will be encouraged, uplifted and empowered.  Stories of women from different centuries, backgrounds and cultures will offer inspiration.  The plight of women from all over the world and their struggles for equality, respect and a promising future will motivate women who are going through their own trials to act and other women to make a difference in their communities.

Women can make a difference.  Jesus’ ministry was supported financially by his female followers.  Other women spread the Gospel while others used their skills to bless those in their communities.  Women, I encourage you to live out loud.  Let God use you.  Don’t let your age, background or circumstance stand in your way.  Let the lives of other phenomenal women inspire you to follow your heart, your dream to be the person you envision yourself to be.  Be a woman of action.  Find your passion and pursue it!  Look, learn and live!

I chose the image of a butterfly because it symbolizes resurrection, transformation, transition, rebirth, hope, joy and new beginnings.  In the Japanese culture it represents womanhood.   I hope this will encourage women to realize that in spite of the injustice and hardship they may face in this world, there is still beauty and hope.  Like the butterfly they can emerge from their circumstances (cocoons) as new creatures, ready to spread their wings.  Don’t let society, your past or mistakes or fear hold you back.  Take flight and experience the joy of living your life to the fullest.

When I was a girl I would look out my bedroom window at the caterpillars; I envied them so much. No matter what they were before, no matter what happened to them, they could just hide away and turn into these beautiful creatures that could fly away completely untouched.
Patch Adams

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom
and a little flower.” ~Hans Christian Anderson

“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls a butterfly.”
Richard Bach

“Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time.”
Deborah Chaskin

“A woman is like a butterfly….
If you want her to stay near you, but fly as she should,
you must not brush the dust off her magical wings,
nor control her essence in your hand…
her beauty will be held only by a stillness and purity of heart.”

Andrew Hawkes
