I think it is wonderful to be able to reach out and encourage women through the Internet, to share with them what God taught me in my walk with Him and to learn from and be encouraged by the other blog writers. Our lives may be different, but our passion is the same: to proclaim how awesome and full of love our God is.
Have you seen the 2006 film One Night with the King? It is about a young woman in an ancient middle-eastern culture who, together with hundreds of other beautiful virgins, is brought to the king’s harem.

Many of them will never see the king again.
